I am a local who has been coming to Cornucopia for many years. Today was my first visit in the new season and I was so looking forward to it. I have always ordered the meatless dream and so enjoyed a full pita of tons...of spinach, sprouts, tomato and avocado. Today's take out consisted of exactly 10 pieces of spinach, 1 thin slice of avocado and a small amount of sprouts and tomato in a dried out piece of pita bread filled less than a half inch and only in the middle part. I had to tear off the extra dry bread with nothing on it as it was too dried out to eat. I just paid $13 for the absolutely worst sandwich I have ever experienced and it never included the cheese that's supposed to be on it. What a profit they must be making from fools like meMore

We are so sorry about your experience. We have some new folks who started in the kitchen who needed more training and experience with our recipes. We believe we have this fixed now. Please come back in and have lunch and dessert on us. Just...More

Truth be told, we returned here four times over two weeks of house hunting, primarily because they served Bonanza California Cabernet. That said, the food is phenomenal, too, and the wait staff is engaging and fun. Will eat here again, with absolute certainty.

I wouldn’t say anything was out of this world. But it was a solid restaurant. And a friendly staff. I’d imagine that during the Warner months it would be a great spot with ample outdoor seating.

This was a pleasant restaurant with good food. Nothing to brag too highly on as there are other restaurants in the area that are better. A great place for large families to get together.

A very unique place to eat with open dining. We had a delightful lunch. House Reuben Sandwich was delicious as well as the The Corn Burger. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It has been serving for 42 years so they definitely know what they as...doing. Enjoy!More

The good was the fish special with fingerlings were great but she said it came with squash and I got a ton of asparagus which is not my preference. The crab cakes were good. Bad was we waited 10 minutes to be served a drink...then after ordering we waited a long long time for our food. I never got the cream corn I ordered. It's a cute place but not ready for prime dinner time.More

We came for an early dinner. Our server was very friendly and - at first - attentive. The attention quickly turned to inattention. We waited a while for our meals and finally, another server brought our food. Both of our meals were mediocre. I had...the fried chicken. The chicken was raw and bloody. I brought this to the server’s attention. She expressed surprise and offered a dessert which I didn’t want. No adjustment was made on the bill for a $26 fried chicken which was not edible. The final straw was the wait time for our check which was at least 20 minutes from the time we gave her our cards. The whole experience was disappointing.More

There is a limited menu - mostly sandwiches and salads. I had the California BLT and my husband had the Reuben. Both were wonderful! There was a line which moved pretty fast but it took a while for the meal to come out. Try the...chocolate buttermilk pie!!More

Reviewed 30 August 2020

we waited at least 15-20 minutes in line to order and pay for the food, while there were plenty of empty tables in the restaurant. The food was expensive and not that great! Hamburger was about $15-$16, and served with fries. My wife had the...salad that she enjoyed. The bill for 2 of us for lunch was close to $50.00 with ice tea and tap water. They require masks until you get your food and then you can remove mask when you are "actively eating.More
