We had lunch at Corks last week only because our first choice restaurant was closed. Were we ever lucky! The menu concept is terrific if you want to share plates, which we did. We started out sharing the calamari (very good, if not the best I've had), a delicious soup, a charcuterie plate and a goat cheese tart. Service was... More

We have been to this winery restaurant many times over the years under a variety of owners. This group is a vast improvement over the last one. We had brunch on Sunday with four adults and two children to give it a try under its latest management. First the good points. The setting is one of the best in wine... More

Service was five stars from him. Ruben the chef came out to visit with patrons. Spent time at our table which was very respectful. While we were leaving he... More

They saved us! We had gone to another restaurant, where we had reservations, to be told they were closed for a private party. We went to Corks, and, and were told, regrettably, they were full. On their doorstep, trying to call around to find somewhere else to eat, the manager stopped us, brought us in and gave us a table.... More

The setting of this restaurant was special. A relaxing, countryside outdoor terrace at this winery, not far from the farm that produces much of what is served, was a great environment for an enjoyable meal. The executive chef stopped by and was so clearly devoted to producing delicious and original dishes. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We had a great... More

Once the best burger in Sonoma county, we sat down to have a revisit of an old favorite. The burger was now $15 at lunch, below average taste, plain white bread bun, and the sides included less than a cup of fries for oneorder and the fruit "side" on the other was two 1/2 inch wedges of a small orange....

Friendly, engaging profession staff. Food and wine was great. Outside dinning perfect. Went for dinner on our first night in town, 2nd night tried a different restaurant which was terrible so we went back to Corks for desert and coffee. Staff remembered us, coffee was fresh and hot. Deserts were yummy. Patio was full with happy customers. Did wine tasting... More

The location of the restaurant is superb. I would suggest resting the sign as it can only be easily seen from one direction but once you're in it's a great location and the inside/outside dining is very relaxing. The food selection is imaginative and executed very well, but there are staff training issues. Firstly our maitre'd didn't engage with us... More

Delightful dining experience. My husband enjoyed the dinner special. It was very special! A beautiful steak with an espresso rub. The flavor was amazing. I enjoyed the fish and it was delicate, flaky and tender. The vegetables were a delight. This restaurant changed my mind about some vegetables. Who knew radishes could taste so good. Do not pass up the... More
