“Love Cork for Brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Cork is a great Go-To Restaurant in Park Circle but I especially love their Brunch! Excellent Shrimp & Grits with a pretty darn good Bloody Mary!

“Flavor wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I had the maple/whiskey glazed salmon - outstanding! My husband ordered the pork chop, which he enjoyed quite a lot. Atmosphere was quiet and comfortable (a weeknight) though I imagine it could be pretty tight on a weekend. We are only in town for the week and we're going to try to go back a second time. YUM

“Inconsistency!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Although most of the food we ordered was very good, our overall experience was average. Vegetable Lasagna and Short Rib dishes were very good and plentiful. Crab cake was not lump crab and fried a bit much for me, very dry. Caesar salad was large but could have used more dressing. Vegetables accompanying the Short Ribs were fresh and tasty. Bread dishes were on the table but we never received any bread, not even with the Lasagna. Nor were we offered any cheese to top off the Lasagna. Atmosphere is typical pub style with large bar and table settings along the wall. It was a cold night so the first few tables close to the door withstood the cold breezes whenever the door opened. 18% added gratuity was a bit much to charge for the service.

“Gave it another shot and still dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

The food itself is pretty good but the service is just so awful that I can't make myself go there again. Our entire meal took over 2 hours. We didn't order any appetizers and we had to ask for drinks on several occasions. If we were lucky, we had two drinks over two hours. We weren't told about the specials. People that came in long after us left and paid their bill while we were still waiting for dinner. I was so irritated that we had to pay the server 20% because he was awful. The final straw was not being able to split our check with our group of 10 and not use our groupon. Our server claims there's no way to do that in their system. Of course none of us had enough cash on hand to pay so our friend had to put the entire bill on her card. This isn't exactly a cheap place to eat. Our bill for 2 people was 80.00 and I would expect a lot more for a nice dinner. This place won't last unless they get their service side of the house in order. My other friends that have gone have had similar experiences and won't go either.

“Good food and pleasant dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

THe food, service and atmosphere are good. The seats aren't the most comfortable. I had Shrimp and grits, very good. Wife had Maple and Whiskey glazed salmon, said it was the best salmon she had ever had. Portions are adequate. What I didn't like is they tend to passively push bottles of wine at the beginning. We were presented with two bottles of wine, with a long review of the quality, that can only be purchased by the bottle, not the glass. Had a Groupon coupon which made it worth it. It does have a limited menu.
