“A sure thing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

I go to The Corner Place 4 or 5 times a month, with friends, for business and solo. The food is interesting, tasty and reasonably priced. The service is courteous and friendly. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and has a good patio. The location is great just across the street from the St. Lawrence Market. Watch for daily drink specials from 3pm to 7pm, e.g. Mon. Martinis $3, Weds. Wine $3 and Weekend brunch $3 Mimosas.

“Good spot for people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

We stopped here for lunch. The Corner Place is, unsurprisingly, on a busy intersection downtown near the St. Lawrence Market, so you can sit out on their patio and watch the world go by. There's a covered section too for when it's raining.

We had the house cheeseburger, which was very tasty, made with real beef in house, and the veggie burger, which my partner decreed to be a "proper veggie burger". Food was delivered promptly, staff are friendly, and it's pretty decent value too.

“Nice atmosphere and patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

The Corner Place is a small bar with a great chef. The food is great and beyond what you expect from the atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. There is a nice patio but on a very loud and busy intersection.

“Not as good as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

Just went for drinks here and have to say that it was disappointing. Drinks came without ice on a very hot day. The raspberry mohito had a very unhappy lychee in it and did not look as though it was made with fresh ingredients. The espresso martini was less than half the amount anywhere else in the world and did not taste very good. These cocktails were priced at $8.95 each which does not represent any where near good value.

This is an honest assessment of this place which is overpriced for what it serves in terms of drinks. If you are going to charge these prices then you need to provide a high standard.

“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went for dinner on a Wednesday evening, there was a great wine special1 bottle was $15, aswell as a seafood special which was absolutely delicious, it went past my expectations. Music was great, upbeat atmosphere, after dinner played some pool while enjoying a few drinks. Staff were very friendly and chatty.
Overall very good experience and good value for money.
