AWFUL place.

This was by far the worst restaurant I've ever been to in the market. It was 4pm on a Saturday and the patio was crowded. The back patio was FULL of flies and wasps...for a "good" reason; right beside their patio (which is the back alley of the restaurant) were 4 huge garbage dumpsters. So we had the wonderful smell of garbage, heat, flies and wasps greeting us. The service was as bad. My friend ordered a wrap and myself a burger. It took 30 minutes for our food to arrive at the table. Hard to imagine how it could take that long when it's a sunny Saturday pm, middle of summer. The food was not good. Cold, dry and the presentation was pathetic and poor. Our cocktails were ridiculously expensive and the glasses were half empty. Food was way over priced. $60 for a burger and a wrap?!? Drinks were $10 each. Ridiculous. Seeing our plates barely touched, the waitress did not even inquire to see what was wrong. Are they use to unsatisfied customers?

We Were Ignored

My partner and I went to the cornerstone on our anniversary because we were new to downtown Guelph, and most restaurants were closed that night, it seemed like the nicest option. It took 20 minutes before our server told us my first choice of dinner wasn't available, meaning they hadn't started the food yet. We should have left but didn't - our food took over an hour total on a moderately quiet night. A different server took over before our meal came, and docked our meal a couple of dollars because when our meal did come they had gotten the order wrong. We left instead of staying for drinks and desert. The food's fine, and I enjoy the location and that it's a local restaurant open late that isn't bar food - but it's frustrating that it seems to be common knowledge in Guelph that you simply shouldn't expect good service there unless you have a certain style of hair or dress. Vegetarian restaurants should be embracing the diversity of their customers. What they're doing instead is bad business.

Unimpressed with service

Called for information pertaining to booking groups. Manager was EXTREMELY unpleasant to talk to - very rude. Told me that I was lucky that they would serve us (um, excuse me). Would recommend any other restaurant in the market, seeing as how they serve very similar meals.

This was by far the worst service I have received - EVER! Upon arriving I waited over 20 minutes to have someone come to our table, ordered a drink(nothing fancy)and waited at least another 15-20 minutes to receive it.(no appologizes or explanations). Dinner was brought and the server did not come back to do a quality check or clear the plates. 20 minutes after the table was full of empty glasses and dishes someone else came by to clear them - finally she returned. I was sooo unimpressed I asked for my bill - which took equally as long and the waitress had to have an itemized description of what I ordered before billing me. I was here for 2 1/2 hours and spent the majority of it waiting for our waitress - who could have made a lot of money if she had come by to see if anyone wanted anything. There was 13 of us and it was someone's birthday. By far the evening was unsuccessful due to this experience! I will never go back nor recommend it to anyone I know ( unless I really don't like them). Note to management: For a restaurant that has a similar menu to the majority of others in the market, you may want to work on the quality of service. Decor is nice, food is adequate but the service will stop many from returning. If you want to be a restaurant and not a cocktail lounge for college students I would make the suggestion of serious training for staff. A pretty face and red dress does not impress anyone who is going out for quality service. Maybe your staff would notice that they are here to serve the public not converse with eachother if they had some guidelines to abide by.

Horrible

The place was horrible. The service was so bad. We were there for a birthday and half of the people left early as the service was so slow. They could have made a lot of money off us buying drinks but it took one person 30 minutes to get a mixed drink. The servers basically ignored us and were talking with each other about cute boys and girls. God it was bad. Never again will I come to this restaurant. It needs to hire a full new staff! Ugh so bad

Loved the atmosphere...Cooler night so we were happy to sit inside but glad the large garage door/windows were open so we could watch the people. Quick service at bar, 20 minute wait for table. Liked that they did not rush our ordering as we perused the menu for a while as it was our first time there. Actually when the waitress heard this she immediately went over the menu with us, noting some favorites which was much appreciated. Food took awhile to come but we were in no rush and actually liked this aspect as were there to do some people watching and watch the hockey game. Friendly server, good food. My husband loved the tilapia and I enjoyed my Southwest burger, though it was not as spicy as I would have expected.

O.K. so we get there and sit down right away, TEN MINUTES go by and i have to get up to get a server to come to our table. Haven't even been acknowledged yet at this point. However, there are servers all around us, they all looked stoned....no pun intended...I suppose because i wasn't a tall beautiful blond, i was paid attention to. Anyway, seeing the host to ask for our server, it was about another maybe 4-5 minutes before he finally came to the table. NOT IMPRESSED!!! this is not my first horrible encounter with Cornerstone but certainly my last. I asked for ketchup and finished my fries before the ketchup arrived at the table. BUT...he wasn't too busy to be talking to the tall pretty fake blond who was sitting beside us. NEVER AGAIN!!oh and the pepsis were flat as a pancake

Ok restaurant. Not a very big menu, slow service, and kinda pricey. Food was bland, lukewarm, but nice sized portions.

The service ok, but everything else is awful. Bartenders don't know how to serve a beer. Pints (actually, I think they try to save some money by serving beer in glasses smaller than the regular pint) are flat or half empty when you get them. It really made me think I was in my uncle's basement who suddenly decided to make it a nice and "hip" place. The place just sucks like most of the Market. The crowd is lame: Villagers who think they're Justin Timberlake and Paris Hilton.

We were directed to a table on the patio and greeted right away by a very friendly server. The drinks were great (mojitos, yum!) and the waitress recommended our orders which were delicious! Very relaxing night. I love Cornerstone

We arrived around 730pm for a late dinner. We were luckey enough to get a seat on the patio, was pretty busy, being the long weekend and such nice weather out. Our waitress took a while to get to us, but not cause she was busy, she simply walked past us several times and finally stopped and asked, "oh, did you know what you want to get?" Ok, she was ditzy, I could live with that. We ordered our drinks and food and waited some more. Food came it was actually quite tasty, good presentation. Prices were kinda jacked-up but you can expect that from a Patio-resturant in the market. So our waitress returns after a while ready to take our plates, I asked to take my wrap "to go" cause I wasnt able to finish it. She nodded her head and took off. Maybe 10 minutes later she passes by us a couple of times and asks, "did you want something else?" My friend asked for the dessert menu and I sort of stared at her curious if she had forgotten my food, but didnt mention anything. I sort of wanted to see if she would remember on her own. That is if she hadnt already tossed it out. So the dessert menu comes, she walks away, comes back and we tell her that we changed our minds, no dessert for us. She simply turned and walked away. We sat at our patio table for a while then, luckey for us there was lots of eye candy in the market. Finally she returns, I swear it was 30 minutes. Then she asks, oh, did you want your bills? Our drinks had been long gone, and we had been looking at her walk around for a while. Anyway, Bills finally come and we pay up and leave. I realize at anytime I could have asked about my food I asked "to-go" but I was pretty discouraged by the service so far I figured that it just would have caused more trouble than anything else. So at the end of all this, I would have to say, good food, terrible service. And after reading some of the reviews on this page I am seeing that this is a recurring theme. Wont go back there.

I started with a new beer. My server knew alot about it and really sold it to me. It was okay, not something I'd drink on a regular basis. Calamari was well cooked, dipping sauce was excellent. It was a creamy based sauce and perhaps could have offered a seafood sauce as well. White Sangria was excellent. I enjoy it so much I was glad they had the recipe right on the drink menu, I make it at home now. Panini was great. Proscuitto added saltiness and roasted red pepper added the sweetness. Basil mayo was a nice touch. Rickard's Red is what it is. haha. Service was a little slow. The food took a long time and as one other mentioned so did the bill at the end. The decor was very nice, upolstry was dirty on the white booth type seating on the hybrid patio but thats to be expected. I really enjoyed it and I plan to return. I hope the service is a bit quicker next time

I'm a regular at cornerstone (once or twice a month). The drinks are always really good, and the food is delicious. It's a very posh place to be, nice atmosphere, overall good place to mingle before heading for the bars. The only reason I rate this place a 7 and not a 10 is because of the service. I always end up waiting 20-30 minutes before the waiter makes a first appearence, another 20-30min wait for food. The waiter never comes to see if all is to our likings or if we are in need of another drink. Next thing you know, you've had to eat your fries with no kepchup etc. Getting the bill is always a challenge. To brief, this place would be amazing if it was'nt for such service. Just be prepared to wait.
