I honestly wish I could give no stars to this piece of trash establishment. I want everybody to know that NO ONE should ever support this restaurant. It all started Mother's Day 2015 and all I wanted to do was take my mother out for a nice brunch after church. I researched and reviewed many restaurants and decided to go with Corner Bistro Wine Bar based off of many reviews. I made my reservation and we arrived promptly at 1PM. First off, we weren't greeted at our table until about 10-15 minutes later (as a server and bartender, it should already be understood that a table should be greeted within 30 seconds to a minute). Upon the greeting, the server already seemed to have an attitude, and when asked questions about their menu (because we had never been there before), his responses were very short and unfriendly. After putting our entree order in, my mother asked if she could have some bread in order to take medication, of which she received the response of, "well we don't give bread." We didn't need anyone to "give" anything, it could've been paid for. My mother felt uncomfortable enough to then speak to a manager. The manager did change our server which seemed to make things feel a little better, however, the foolishness did not end there. Don't get me wrong, we were informed that our entrees would take about 20-30 minutes because of the holiday (even though there wasn't as much business as they would presume), but when the clock made it to 2:30PM and there was still no food for a simple chicken and waffles and chicken sandwich order, anyone would begin to get restless. The manager never tried to check back after all of the issues so we decided to leave.
I'm normally not the type of person to complain, however, this experience was ridiculous enough to the point that I wanted to inform the General Manager or try and call a corporate office. I found out that they have no corporate office because they are independently operated. The process of even speaking to a GM took from May 2015-July 2015. Throughout that time, I've spoken to several different "managers", servers and hostesses that always had an excuse as to why the General Manager wasn't in the restaurant. Sometimes they wouldn't even know when the next time would be that he would be in the restaurant. The only person that tried to help was a gentleman named Jeff, that actually offered to send a voucher for us to return so that we wouldn't have that impression of their business, but funny enough, that voucher never came in the mail.
Finally now in July, I get in contact with Mr. Andy, the General Manager of this independently owned establishment for him to tell me he doesn't believe we should get a voucher even though it was already offered from one of his managers and just continued to make excuses for the rest of his team. He thought that it was sufficient enough just to fire the server, but didn't think it was sufficient enough to respond to all of my means of contact. So, as promised, here is my review of Corner Bistro Wine Bar. The independently owned restaurant that will NEVER get further than what it is because of their service. I'm surprised that they even have the location that they have. I REPEAT, DO NOT EVEN WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY YOUR TIME.
