Overall, this is the best restaurant/bar. The food is amazing and the service and staff sre wonderful, especially the bartender Caroline. She goes out of her way to be helpful with any questions you may have about the menu or drinks. Also, she knows how to make a good drink which is extremely important. She's always there to refill your... More

Had an appetizer special, fig and Brie grilled cheese that was a wonderful combination. We loved it. Shrimp and Crab Pasta dinner was one if the best meals I ever... More

Wonderful experience at Cork. Went with friends for my husband's birthday. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Felt welcomed from the moment we stepped in. We had a cozy corner table on the second floor. Meals ordered were the stuffed pork chop, chicken Parmesan, stuffed salmon and chicken saltimbocca- we would highly recommend any of these dishes....

Had the Spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer. It was phenomenal! Both of us had an entree that we loved. I had the Mediterranean Chicken, which was fantastic. My friend had the Shrimp & Crab Bolognaise with Homemade Pappardelle. Everything was served hot and delicious. We also had a great server who was bubbly and friendly. She helped us... More

I ate at Cork on a Friday night and sat at the bar; the service was excellent with a large wine & beer selection. We had the special of the night, stuffed mushrooms which were delicious. We also had the calamari which I immediately decided was the best calamari I have ever had in my life. For dinner we had... More

Not being from the area, this place was tough to find. But it was well worth the search. The service was good as was the choice of drinks. And the food was pretty good. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal.

Excellent food and service. Treat yourself to a great meal, with great service at a reasonable price. Our recent visit was not our first, and as always the food and service were excellent. Their menu is varied and creative, but most often we end up getting one of the nightly features Despite some initial reservations, my husband was glad he... More
