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

Came here looking for some local farm fresh food. Ordered a fruit and Cheese tray that was drizzled with a cranberry infused honey, mmmmm. Also had a bottle of champagne that my husband I enjoyed. The server was very nice, she was very attentive, if she saw glass empty she would come and fill it. Manager was present and walked... More

We only had drinks there. Staff seemed a bit overworked. Were not attentive at all. I was never asked if I wanted more than one drink nor were we asked if we wanted food. The one drink I had was fine, but nothing to write home about.

On a recent Saturday night, four of us went to the Cork. Wine & Tapas restaurant for the first time. I had seen the reviews and a short video review of this restaurant by the Phantom Gourmet and was intrigued. We were not let down at all, as both the service and food were very very good. Some of the... More

The atmosphere at Cork is terrific, and the food very good -- but the edamame tapa was about 2 cups of food, the same for the marinated olives and peppers. The "Philly cheesesteak spring roll" was three large pieces and there were two... More
