I have eaten at Corks restaurant in the past and enjoyed the food and the ambiance. This time the ambiance was wonderful as usual. The carrot ginger soup was delicious, but we had to pay $5 for a small basket of bread, but my short ribs were very fatty with at best 2-3 oz of lean meat. Fortunately the sauce... More

Nice Sunday weather for outdoor dining. Corks is the spot. Only problem on our visit, was lack of a table outside for two people. Even though we had a reservation, we were told the two empty tables outside were being held for other reservations. We had to eat inside facing a window over looking the two empty tables. The inside... More

I am sorry you were not given a table outside on the day you visited us. I have made it known to the entire staff that we will, if necessary, move a table outside in order to accommodate a guest reservation. Thank you for the feedback. Chris More

The setting in the back is highlighted by an old Buick, giving a unique ambience to an exceptional off the beaten path restaurant. Food was carefully prepared and flavorful. I had the short ribs, served piping hot and great flavor. Service was top shelf too!

We were staying overnight in the area and reserved a table here for dinner. They have a beautiful outdoor patio for dining, although it was a bit cold the evening we were there. The heaters were on, but still chilly. We endured the cold as we listened to some pleasant live guitar music during our meal. Our food was excellent,... More

We have frequently visited this establishment and have loved it every time... I must amend my prior review and say while the ambiance is lovely and the staff is extremely attentive the chef has changed. . . It is unfortunate that their menu changed with him. The whole menu with exception to the truffle fries. I am saddest about the... More
