  • Poor service, over priced, bad food. McDonald's produces better food. If you are looking for a nice dinning experience avoid this restaurant.

  • 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.

  • Order: Two Salads, Vegetarian Pizza, Quesadilla

  • 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.

  • Order: Burgers

  • 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.

  • Order: various appetizers, burgers, pizzas, sandwiches, wraps

Did you really wait 20 minutes? Why didn't you just got grab a host, or wave a server over?? I have had that problem too but just went and talked to the hostesses

  • 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

  • Order: A wrap

  • 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.

  • Order: Tilapia fish with coconut rice Southwest Burger Drinks: Tom Collins, Sling, Caesar

  • 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

  • Order: fajitas wrap with fries, Asian salad, pepsis
