Located across the street from the New Bedford Ferry Terminal and the Cuttyhunk Ferry Company. Tables outside (deal with the view of traffic), inside first floor (kudos to the design team), or downstairs.

I have always wanted to go to Cork, but for some reason never stopped in. We went on a beautiful day, sat outside, and had one to the best burger ever. It seemed like everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch. Based on one visit I'll be back for sure.

I have been here recently a couple of times. The 1st time we had no reservations and the place was packed. There was a great 4 piece band playing that evening. We stood at the bar until seats opened up and ordered some great fried oysters and a plate of grilled brussels sprouts...both yummy. When we went back we made... More

Let me begin by clearing up any misconceptions about Cork: using the words "Mediterranean" or "Spanish" doesn't quite capture the essence of Cork's menu. Though I admit I chose the restaurant for its location on the waterfront and the mention of tapas, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a well-rounded menu. The dining room is gorgeous: the main floor features... More

I always thought this was a wine bar, but was pleasantly surprised to find a full menu with some very nice selections. We were looking for a light bite around 4pm and this fit the bill. Musicians were about to start playing and the place had lots of reserved signs on the tables which is a good sign for a... More

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
