Great meal at Corks

We had dinner here on Superbowl Sunday! Quiet, as expected, food and wine were really good, service was outstanding. I expect the location is even lovelier when the weather is warmer and you can sit outside.

A very nice meal and good bottle of wine but seemed a little pricey (but so were most places vs what we are use to).

I had been wanting to go here for awhile and finally had the chance during restaurant week. I love this place! The food was all really fresh, they have their own farmer on staff. The ravioli was particularly fabulous. We sat in a cute little room off the patio that looked like it had one whole wall that opened to... More

Nice resturant connected to a small winery. Many menu selections coming from their own garden. Food was ok, just not outstanding. I had sea bass, wife had rabbit. Atmosphere was nice and the service was good, but nothing would make me want to recommend it.

Ok. This is not like the fancy posh tasting rooms you see at other places. This is about tasting some wine, enjoying the view, relaxing. Laid back relaxed place with quirky statues. They don't mass produce the wine, small batches only.
