Steak
Owing to the success of the Cornstore Wine Bar & Restaurant Cork, a sister restaurant was opened in Limerick in November 2008, situated on the newly refurbished and pedestrianised street, Thomas Street.

The concepts boasts 3 floors offering a lively, buzzy, Manhattan style surrounding, including private dining and contemporary heated smoking area. The interior is mirrored to match the stylish elegance of its sister restaurant in Cork with intricate floor tiling, pewter style bar, cosy booths and intimate lighting.

Like Cork, the menu consists of premium steaks and quality seafood, an extensive drinks list with cocktails, new world beers and a vast wine list.
Both Cornstore buildings were selected because of their historic presence and the belief that the old and new can be successfully combined to create an old style feel with a modern ambiance.

Absolutely loved everything about my evening. The waiter was fantastic, when I explained on placing our orders my friend had to leave early for a train hence he just ordered a starter, he ensured his food arrived immediately. Service was fantastic.
Food was delicious, so tasty and elegantly presented. Great choice.
As for the setting, intimate yet also areas to cater for larger groups where you never feel like other diners are encroaching on your space. One of my favourite places to eat, can't wait to return.

Perfect place for a Sunday afternoon get together with friends... music a little too loud. Otherwise, excellent

Very nice meal after the Munster v Leinster game. Restaurant was busy but we were very well looked after by the staff. Limited Christmas set menu but plenty of choice and everyone very happy with their order. Reasonably priced too. Well done!

We were seated next to the serving area. Couldnt hear ourselves think due to the staff cleaning off dishes and taking orders and food from the kitchen. It was hard to enjoy the dining experience unfortunately. Food itself was mediocre. My wifes steak was full of gristle mostly ,but being typically Irish we didn't bother to send it back and complain. On the plus side all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.

Was referred by our Hotel as we were just in Limerick for the evening. Quiet Sunday night in the town. We were all pleased with our meals. Nice spot that was inviting. We were not looking for the Pub environment, wanted a more diverse menu and liked what we saw. We had salads to start with steaks and chicken. Would certainly recommend if you like the looks of their menu.

We booked in the Cornstore for lunch celebrating a special occasion , the table we got was placed in a cosy corner and the Restaurant looked gorgeous as all the Christmas decorations were already up . The waiter was very nice and tried to accomodate my request of change in my salmon option regarding the potatoes as I'm off carbs. I asked for avocado instead of mash but he offered a small salad that unfortunately I did not felt like eating :( altogether was a lovely experience and we highly recommend the Cornstore in Limerick .

Very dissatisfied with our meal, chicken wings were poor lot of blackness in them, tomato starter only ok. Mains steak and spinach terribly presented horrible combo and looked so mean on plate, pepper sauce was terrible poor quality side of potato gratin awful, hard waxy cubed potatoes, other main chicken supreme too much taste clashes on plate again sauce terrible tasted burnt. Deserts were ok. Have been coming for 10 years and this was first time we left so disappointed with our meal, really ruined what was to be a special occasion.

Had a booking for 9pm but unfortunately the table wasn't ready til 9:20pm (which is probably the folk's before us faults, not the restaurant) The waiter/kitchen didn't send out one of the desserts (apple & berry crumble) which then arrived cold and late.
But overall it was really nice

Really enjoyed the overall experience, relaxed atmosphere, good friendly service. A little noisy because we were seated very close to the kitchen but we were told that on arrival, so no fault of the restaurant there but if and when we go back again we probably wouldn’t sit there.

Very good food, very good service and friendly people but a pity that there is too much noise and that we had the impression that we needed to go away within 2 hours after we arrived.

Had lunch again in cornstore with 2 friends. I had my usual of egg fried noodles with szechuan sauce and chicken (they also offer beef and prawns with noodles) and side order of skinny fries. One my friends had the exact same and my other friend had the same minus the fries.

The noodles as always were perfection. I keep saying I must try a different dish in cornstore limerick but love the egg fried noodles with szechuan sauce and chicken.

So does my friend. We look forward every few weeks to lunch In cornstore limerick to dine on a feed of noodles.

Don't know what we would do if the noodle dish was taken off the menus in cornstore limerick.

Hopefully egg fried noodles with szechuan sauce will stay on menus in cornstore limerick for the foresable future.

Stay very friendly and efficient.

Looking forward already to my next time in cornstore limerick and and on a meal of noodles in szechuan sauce and chicken.
