We had heard about this place and tried it recently. While there were some interesting ingredients, nothing we had was particularly memorable- we shared plates and neither of us were fighting over the last bite. The flavors did not seem to blend well and our overwhelming and lingering impression (next day) was garlic. The squid and carrot salad had tender... More

You arrive and are greeted in a most friendly manner with something yummy to drink. We ate on a Sunday night when the menu is set. The delicious and creative dishes are served family style, the wines are included on the table, the service is warm and helpful and the setting is a charming building which lends itself to a...

We ate at The Corson to celebrate a friends 50th birthday. From the moment we arrived through our meal our experience was outstanding. This is a smaller restaurant with only a few tables that seat 8 each. We went on an ala carte night (Thursday) and had the chef chose our full meal. Each dish that was brought out was... More

its really small, and you might actually share a table with some other folks anxious to have the experience Corson offers, its quaint, intimate, and the food is memorable indeed-- reservations are necessary, but the food and the ambiance is truly distinctive and wonderfully interesting and unique--its not "over the top" epicurean, its just unique and fabulous--every course we were...

Comfortable, quaint venue well suited for the family style dining experience. Friendly, accommodating service made us feel right at home. Enjoyed the opportunity to meet new people while savoring the several nicely prepared courses. In addition to the glass of elderberry wine we were greeted with, there was a bottle of red and white to accompany the meal. The only... More

The building looks like a portal back to another time and when you sit at a communal table and enjoy a meal with ingredients that seem to have been picked, butchered, or harvested from the back yard, it does feel like you have been transported!!!! It was a dinner that touched every sense. What an experience!

My friends held a reception for their wedding herd and it was AMAZING! The restaurant and grounds are absolutely gorgeous - the building is surrounded by others that don't really match the ambiance of the Corson Building, but that actually kind of adds to the charm. The staff was kind, friendly, and helpful. They kept my wine glass full! And... More

Although the temps outside were plus 90, no AC in restaurant and seating is family style (code for not comfortable), the food experience was good. We seemed to have ordered just about everything off the daily menu offerings and enjoyed what came out of the kitchen. Certainly wished the atmosphere/temps were more tolerable. A place to return to but not... More

Went for wife's birthday. Arrive a bit early and just walk through the garden and the oasis that this place is. The food is inspired by the garden so enjoy it before you go in. The food is amazingly prepared and the staff is attentive and expertly in tune with you. The thing that amazed me was the freshness of... More
