Perfect little hideaway for a romantic dinner

Wow, the front of the building does not reflect how beautiful it is on the patio in the back. Beautiful inside and great outside patio with a working pond, cute lights strung across and a great ambiance. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was top notch. Food was amazing as well.

Wow, the front of the building does not reflect how beautiful it is on the patio in the back. Beautiful inside and great outside patio with a working pond, cute lights strung across and a great ambiance. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was top notch. Food was amazing as well. Staff were very friendly in the evening.

This place is quirky but in a good way. The service was incredibly uneven but they recognized it and comped us a lot of food. The food was very good and their pizzas were incredibly imaginative.

As out of town guests for a wedding, we were treated to an amazing sit down meal for 50+ guests. Drinks prior to dinner were very nice selections of the Corkscrew wines and beer - all very tasty. 3 kinds of Appetizers were interesting and graciously served to guests. Dinner options were steak, salmon, and "Mary's Chicken" with salad and... More

The weather was lovely and we ate outside on the patio. The food was very good and it was a very nice experience. It is in an area with good shopping and a winery for wine tasting as part of the restaurant.

The Inn keeper at the place we stayed told us the Corkscrew was the #1 spot in town and hse was 100% correct. The food and service here were both great. Definitely get one of the pizzas.

We loved the wine country atmosphere. Everything we ordered was excellent, especially the steak and the local wine.

We were looking for a place to enjoy a glass of wine after the tastings closed for the day. Tried Corkscrew Bistro on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter Adam was polite, friendly, and helpful. Two glasses of a local cab and a flatbread pizza were wonderful. The outdoor garden seating area was the nicest surprise of all.... More

I think our friends may have over sold this place to me. There were 8 of us and some of the people are picky. My trout was average and not completely boneless as promised. There were about 8 entrees on the menu and most were plates I would never order. The one that stuck out was beet stew. You got... More

We were staying nearby so this was a logical choice. The food was excellent, creative use of spices and sauces. Service was attentive and prices were reasonable.

Visiting my daughter and she said we would like eating at this place. We didn't like it we loved it. Not only is the food good but they have a amazing wait staff. We ordered four different meals and they all were delicious. The also have a great wine selection. Take seating outside.
