A little pricy but the tapas and drink are great. The environment is awesome though parking can be a challenge for people unfamiliar with the area.

Been a few times to Cork....service is not worth the trip!!!! Servers standing right at the bar talking and laughing looking right at our table....waited 25-30 mins for someone to come over....at one point we almost thought "is this place self serve"....then waited another 15-20 mins for our drinks to arrive...will never go back

Sometimes the service is a hit or miss. However, food is always delicious and they update the menu frequently. Always something new to try.

This is a great place to visit on New Bedford's charming waterfront. My sister and I saw Kathy Griffin at the Zeiterion and chose Cork because of all the good reviews that it has received (ie, Phantom Gourmet) and it didn't disappoint. We shared the big sellers, as recommended by our server. The scallops were great but the sauce and... More

We enjoyed it so much we have been back 3 times! The scallops are the best I have ever had. And I really enjoy the flights of wine, it's a... More

While returning to my hometown I realized I never really had the chance to really explore all the great dining experiences that New Bedford has to offer downtown. I took my mother to Cork. We enjoyed a bottle of wine, the Goat Cheese Crostini, Pan Seared New Bedford Scallops, Truffled Fritas and followed with a light dessert. It was a... More

we called in by chance on a weekday lunch. When we arrived there was nobody else to be seen. But a lady appeared and showed us to a table, the service was very disjointed, drinks took ages, ordering the food was interrupted by other diners coming in. The food itself was o.k., but was strange that in nearly empty restaurant... More
