We made reservations to fine at the Russian River Vineyard because it described itself as an outdoor dining room with views of the vineyard. We arrived on a clear autumn evening with temps in the low 60's. With patio heat lamps it would have been a great evening to fine outside. When we arrived it was very dark. No lights... More

We had lunch outside in a beautiful setting, but the food didn't measure up. Although they have a beautiful vegetable garden on site, the lunches we had didn't take advantage of the fresh produce. Our food was average at best and over salted to our taste.

I heard great things about this restaurant, so we decided to go. It is very beautiful, I definitely recommend sitting outside on their nice patio if you go. The service was great as well, very attentive, no complaints at all for the wait staff. Of course the menu is expensive which is fine if you are getting great food with... More

Enjoyable meal outside. Two things to note: while food was very tasty the portions were on the smaller side and pricey($20 for a small tomato and mozzarella salad with 4 tiny pieces of chicken). Also, there was a big sign at the at the entrance mentioning that dogs were invited but only on leashes. During our meal 2 dogs were... More

The Innkeeper, at nearby Raford Inn (fabulous!) recommended Corks for an impromptu dinner. So glad they could accommodate us! Service was attentive, but not overwhelming. Options were varied, to suit all tastes. WE'll be sure to factor in a wine tasting, and vinyard tour during our next visit.

We had dinner her, our inn keeper recommended to us and we were not disappointed. They had some nice live music and we dinned outside, beautiful evening and we loved our meals. Our waiter Matthew made us feel like we were family, he took great care of us and his recommendations of the menu were awesome. We will go back... More

Everything about our dinner at Corks was perfect. The setting was unbelievable with beautiful views of the vineyards and farm. Our waiter matched wines to our courses and we raved about every bite. The scallops entree was one of the best meals I ever had. We even left our table to watch the sunset over the vineyard with wine in... More

Gourmet brunch on the patio before wine tasting. We had a delicious chicken dish that the chef and waiter both introduced. Great service, excellent dining on a cool patio, and a fabulous guitar player at just the right volume.

We recently returned to Corks for lunch. It had been several months since we visited for lunch. We have always thought of Corks as a very good value restaurant with pleasant ambiance in the middle of west Sonoma County wine country and so commented in my prior review. We were very disappointed by our recent noontime visit. Portions have become... More

This place is gorgeous. The restaurant overlooks vineyards and the garden (it's a farm to table restaurant). Our server, Hannah, was sweet and attentive. The food and wine were delicious. We shared several small plates (tomato bisque, market salad, goat cheese tart, roasted beets) so we could sample as many foods as possible. Chris O'Neil, the owner, visited our table,... More
