I used to live in Carp and so when I came to visit friends for the holidays...Corktree Cellars caught my attention. The space is well used and very comfortable. They have definitely "found their niche" with wine flights they offer and wine by the glass even. I hit during "happy hour" and had a very nice house Chardonnay and a... More

Off-season in Carpinteria, that is to say, October through February, does not offer many restaurant opportunities for a Sunday evening. We happened upon Corktree Cellars Wine Bar and Bistro. A quick review of the menu suggested we could be happy with this eatery. The menu is very short; your choices are limited, but in spite of that shortfall, the offerings... More

Wife and I have now been twice, both times on a late Sunday evening. This may explain our experience of inept service (as opposed to many other reviewers’ comments). We ordered different items on each visit. Everything was good…good ingredients…correctly prepared…nicely presented. But, the inept service (both times) really subtracted from the experience. And, while it calls itself a “wine... More

The atmosphere and service is great. The meat and cheese plate was so much fun and so filling and delicious. The second night, I had the shrimp pasta and it was also great. Highly recommend this place!

Since I was in town for business and traveling alone, I sat at the bar. The service was very friendly and the food was excellent. For the tapas, I tried some sausage wrapped in bacon (how can you go wrong?) and had to force myself to act civil and not shovel it down my face. Awesome. For dinner, I had... More

I ate here with my 12 year old son after a day at the beach. Good, menu with nice entrees for adults but also a lot of stuff the kids will eat as well. Friendly staff, decent wine list, good ambience, good value for money.

A great place for a glass of wine and a light meal. Don't go if you are starving and want giant portions, but if you want to relax, drink a nice glass of wine and enjoy a tasty meal this is the place. Not a giant menu, but more than adequate, good pastas and a really good burger. Lots of... More

Come hear to spoil yourself with some outrageous twists on comfort food and give yourself permission to indulge. Wine selections allow for some adventure and flights are available. The Jessy Salad and the Lobster Melt panini were wonderful . . . pommes frittes were outrageous particularly with dipping sauce. No one in our party of six was disappointed with anything... More
