    Good food, poor service

    Usually when you order over a $100 worth of food you should receive at least mediocre service. Our waitress was dreadful and barely checked on us one time. The other wait staff and the busboys seemed to be more helpful. We were brought the check before our meal was even over, very rude. The food was ok at best. Try one of the other restaurants associated with the owners, they are much better!

    This is a "service" industry people

    I went to Corsino last Thursday evening with my aunt. We were famished and it was around 9pm. I had read good things about the food. We were told it would be about a 20-30 minute wait so we decided to have a glass of wine at the bar. After waiting at the bar for about 10-15 minutes trying to get someone's attention, we finally flagged down a waiter passing by. We asked what we had to do to get a drink and we were told we were standing in "no man's land" because the glass with the giant leg of pork behind it is apparently the mason dixon line of no service. He was kind enough to get us wine and told us it would be on the house since we were neglected, and proceeded to flag down the waitress that was supposed to be tending to us. When he did so, she quickly gave us a nasty look as though we did something wrong by sitting behind the "glass-o-pork" where she would've had to serve us. The experience was downhill from there. It was like pulling teeth to get any service at our table. After the waitress finally took our order, she came back about 15 minutes later with a plate with three dry crostini saying she knew we were hungry so she went out of her way to get us something to nibble on. In the meantime, the previous waitress who was supposed to service us at the bar, continued to "eye" our table and gave us dirty looks. After all that, our waitress interrupted our meal to ask if we'd "settled" our bill at the bar and we told her the nice waiter had told us the wine was on the house because we had waited so long, only to have her add the wine to our final bill. I will say the food was good, but NEVER worth the bad experience of service we were subjected to that evening. It takes a lot for me to make a clear declaration, but I will never go back and I've already told many people never to go there. Perhaps the management should have a staff meeting about servicing customers in a timely fashion with a welcoming attitude. Just a thought!

    Wonderful evening!

    First off, the service was terrific. The sommelier was totally unpretentious and down to Earth and she picked out a few really good wines for us that weren't like $100 a bottle as wine stewards usually do. Our waiter was also very nice and took tons of time explaining the 'concept' of the menu and told us he'd let us know if we were ridiculously over-ordering or under-ordering and everything turned out to be just right. The food was fantastic and other than a slightly over-salted shrimp entrée we loved everything. The crostini were inventive and tasty and were easy enough to divide so we could all try a bit of every one. OMG they'd flown in a cow's milk mozzarella from Italy for one of the dishes that night - it was melt in your mouth delicious. The only real drawback to the restaurant that I could see (or hear, actually) was that it was insanely loud. We were lucky enough to be seated up front in the corner by the window so it wasn't that bad for us, but in the back it's pretty noisy. But hey, this is NYC, so who's gonna' complain about noise? We will definitely be back! Thanks guys!

    Pleased, and would recommend

    The food: Excellent cheese (I forget the name; similar to a brie), with delightful little nuts, relish, and toasts as an accompaniment. The rhubarb french toast (evidently they are a bit delayed on updating the online menu) was questionable. I couldn't decide if it was delicious or a little bit off. I'm going to err on the side of delicious though. The service: Friendly and warm male host. I'll be kind and say the waiter must have been new. I asked him which cheeses were creamy and mild and he really didn't know. I think he tried to make something up, which resulted in me getting something completely different than I wanted. He fixed it, and it was no big deal. My other gripe though was that the server(s) tried to take our plates away no less than 3 times. The 4th time they didn't even ask, and just started taking the plates away. We had only been there just over an hour, and there were plenty of open tables, so I'm not sure what the rush was, as I was clearly not done (the fork was still in my hand). Admittedly, I took about 10 min longer than my dining companions to finish, but still. The atmosphere: Very relaxed and chill. The floor-to-ceiling windows were open with the air blowing in, which was wonderful; it created a completely open-air feel. There was a couple with a child sitting next to us, but luckily no problems there. Overall noise level was pretty low. All in all, great place, and my gripes are minor ish. Would definitely recommend for a nice low-key brunch.

    Valentines Date

    We were excited to go try out Corsino for Valentines day and got our reservations 3 weeks in advance. When we got there we were seated in the front of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by our friendly (and gorgeous blonde) server. We were having trouble understanding the menu, but our server guided us through every part of the menu. We started with some of the crostini (bruschetta type appetizers that were very small) and weren't too impressed. We then tried the special salad of the day (cold brussel sprouts in a strange, peppery sauce) and the fried cheese ball and had the same response as the crostini. Luckily the pastas were good (spaghetti with clams and tagliatelle with lamb) and our stomachs ended on a good night. We also tried some good wine by the carafine (a little caraffe) that our server recommend. She was dead on with pairing our food with the wine. Food was not as good as we had hoped, but overall the service was the best part of our night.

    Sunday at 9 p.m.

    The place was full and lively as ever. Friendly and very helpful service with wine selections. Top notch everything. The tripe was great.

    Delish

    Everything was amazing! I ordered almost every crostini and they were amazing - I loved the ricotta and honey, the pesto and the Brussels sprouts the best. The orecchiettepasta so flavorful and yummy. I would definitely go back and order a similar spread of "tapas."
