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.

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.

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.

We revisited Corks in November, 2014, having thoroughly enjoyed the food and service a couple of years ago. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding again. The menu offered three scallops for an additional $15 - steep price, but as we discovered, well worth the price. The young chef visited each table and talked with enthusiasm and knowledge about...

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
