My siblings and I brought my mom here to celebrate her birthday. The crispy shrimp appetizer had 4 butterflied shrimp which was nothing special and cost $14. Two of us had the braised short ribs ($20) with Yukon potatoes and garlic green beans. The meat was tender but if it didn't have a glaze on top wouldn't have had a... More

This is a good spot for business lunch on 202, a nice alternative to the chains. Great menu and quality of food. The lunch specials are quick and good. Consistent food, good atmosphere, and not loud. Service is spot on.

Met my friends for a girls night out at Corner Bistro, it was my first time at this restaurant and I was eager to give it a try. I had the flat bread, house salad and risotto. Everything was well prepared and delicious. What stands out most was the service. Our server Patrick's warm and welcoming demeanor made us feel... More

While visiting friends in Wilmington, they suggested we stop by the Corner Bistro before hitting the road home. What a great choice! The food was delicious and the service was great! I had the frittata and a bloody mary or two. The meal was divine and this place is a true gem. The best of all is at the end... More

Although it doesn't look great from the outside, once you get inside it is quite cute. I normally enjoy a limited menu (simple selection process), but nothing jumped out at me. When dining out, I try to order things I cannot easily make well at home so I avoid ordering salmon, chicken, etc. Another fish option was listed on the... More

This was our second visit to Corner Bistro, on a Sunday which found most other choices shuttered. We arrived around 1 pm and were offered a brunch menu, which included a number of egg-based specialties plus some very good salads and a crab-asparagus gratin. The coffee was of high quality and my dessert, key lime pie, was one of the... More

The black bean soup is great, but not too many other choices for vegetarians. We liked the food the couple of times we took out from here, but the shortage of vegertarian/vegan options (not their fault we're vegetarian!) makes it unlikely that this will become a regular haunt.

For a quiet evening out, it's a nice relaxing place. The staff was quite helpful. My meal was fine but not spectacular. My friend very much liked her choice so maybe it was just me. Nevertheless, probably a decent choice if you're in the area, Excellent wine selection.

Nice little place tucked into a shopping center. Nice variety of menu items...things we would not typically make at home. It's cozy and on a busy night, you may be a bit too close to fellow diners than desired. Make reservations as this place is small. Very attentive staff. Save room for desserts...they are amazing!
