Awarded "Best New Restaurant" by both Diablo Magazine and Walnut Creek Magazine and the Design Beautification Award from the City of Walnut Creek.<br /><br />Local, laid-back and stylishly casual, Corners Tavern, in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza, is a restaurant without pretense that features approachable & soulful American food with a unique collection of craft beers, artisan cocktails & distinctive wines. <br /><br />Open for lunch and dinner, with a special weekday happy hour and weekend brunch, Corners Tavern is the perfect neighborhood spot for a night out on the town, a break during a shopping spree at Broadway Plaza’s great stores or a pre-movie bite with friends.

"Wow, we had the corn gnocchi, smoked half chicken, and tuna cod ceviche appetizer which were fantastic! The flavor combinations and the use of fresh melon for the summer made the dishes. Our waiter was so friendly, engaging, and attentive it really made it a wonderful experience. The drinks were terrific too, the Mojo Rizer (minus cilantro for me I'm allergic) super refreshing. We love that they change up the food and drink menus, always trying different things and that make it even more fun."

"We were seated outside as requested and it was terrific! Our waiter was helpful and friendly, just the right attentiveness despite how busy it was (there was a concern that night). We made a last minute reservation, which is why I love Open Table because I can always get a table. I was a bit disappointed with the Reuben sandwich :-( The meat was tasty, but way to oily and it made the bread soggy. Too bad cause the flavor was there."

Ristorante Piatti features a menu with recipes complimenting the various regions of Italy. It has a casual yet sparkling atmosphere with authentic regional Italian cuisine. Piatti's success can be attributed to its staff and its approach to food, wine, and the dining experience.

"Well I have been very vocal about the decline and then sporadic improvement in food taste, service, and management however, I will say our experience this time was significantly improved. My food was seasoned and tasty, our waiter very friendly and attentive, and really enjoyed our dinner with friends."

"We had our anniversary dinner here and couldn't have had a more fun. Our waiter was friendly, funny, and engaging. He made super suggestions on food and drinks. We sat at a window by the kitchen pass so it was a bit warm, but otherwise a great experience."

"Thought we'd just search Open Table suggestions for dinner and drinks at 7:00 on a Saturday and this place came up. It was last minute but we booked a 7:15 with no problem. Saw the great outdoor seating and thought we would try to change the table but it was packed, so we will definately reserve that next time! The cocktails were terrific, light and refreshing for the hot weather. Our waiter was really helpful on menu suggestions, the short rib meatloaf and jambalaya were delicious. I did substitute the rice for gluten free pasta, which was undercooked but I prefer more al dente' anyway. Overall really terrific!"

Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines. Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones. Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.
