Heard about this place and had to try it! Amazing burger! The $2 beers ar great as well. Fresh product! After eating at probably every burger place in the city, corner bistro and the burger joint on 3rd ave are hands down the best & freshest in the city.

The burgers are still the best in the city. The $2 beers are a great deal as well. The service, though never great, has actually gotten worse.

I've been going to the Corner Bistro for years, probably at least once a week. While the burger can be a little inconsistent, you can't beat the experience. Here are 2 important tips for improving your burger experience. 1- order your burger medium or medium rare. 2- everyone at the table should order their burger cooked the same way. The reason for this is they always bring all the burgers out at the same time- and if people order their burgers cooked differently- some will always be overdone. Also, try the grilled cheese with bacon and tomato or the chicken sandwich with bacon, cheese, and mayo.

I think you have to understand this place. They make burgers. Sell beer. Drop fries in oil. No bs. If you want a real burger in a real bar with a real person serving you, you'll love it. Don't go at night. it gets slammed. Eat a burger, read the paper, get out of the way and on with your day. Nobody loves you, they just sell burgers. Get real. Bistro Medium* with Fried Onions. Pure and simple. (Bistro= Cheese Burger with Bacon) *Rare tends to look like it might walk off the plate.

So I read a couple of outstanding reviews of this place, and recently having moved to the Village I thought I'd try it out. Went on a Monday night around 6 and while it wasn't packed, it was still busy. Decided to eat at the bar since I didn't feel like making the waiter take his time to seat just me. I ordered the Bistro Burger (med. rare) and a Coke and was astonished when it appeared infront of me 3 min. later. From my seat at the bar I could tell the cook was cooking up burgers, letting them sit in a warming pan, then frying them again for a min. before sending them out. Burger was a bit smaller than I expected for $6.50 (more impressive in its height than width) and while I did order it med. rare....the thing was pretty pink and luke warm on the inside. The coke was pretty heavily iced too. Total came to $9 which normally for a meal like that I would normally be pretty steamed about, but the guys behind the bar and waiter all looked to be in there 60's and were extremely friendly without being annoying so I felt bad stiffing them on a tip. All in all, I feel like I should have been more disappointed, but the staff and atmosphere of the place is really laid back....plus the neighborhood is fun to walk through. However, definitely NOT the best burger in NYC.

When they are on it is simply the best burger in New York City. When they are off it is not very good. I work near Bistro and have a lot of experience ordering. Try to go on a Monday-Wednesday. Thursday Friday and Saturday is an absolute madhouse there. The wait staff can be rude. But not in the way that turns people off. It's a buger joint and they have a burger joint attitude. The McSorley's on tap fries and Bistro Burger combination is killer. I love this place though. You are not a New Yorker until you have gone there.
