We had an absolutely wonderful meal here last night for our wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and the meal was amazing! The complimentary meatballs and bread with olive oil was beautiful start to the meal. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting the best steak in Adelaide.

We had the most amazing experience at the Cork & Cleaver. The service we received was fantastic from the moment we walked in, both charming and attentive. The meals when they came out were delicious and very generously sized. Will definitely return.

Cork & Cleaver is a restaurant located just off of Glen Osmond road, tucked away nicely within the surrounding suburb of Glenunga and specialises in meat dishes for its customers. I dined here with my extended family in late February 2017 for my birthday dinner and had not dined here previously so was unaware what to expect. Upon arrival the... More

Went to the Cork and Cleaver tonight for my 50th birthday dinner with my family. Had a private room and everything was great. Food beautiful, service great and I was made to feel even more special with a gift from the restaurant. Old fashioned food and service.

Not sure who answered the phone this pm but it sounded like the manager. Rang to enquire about the menu for a function for 20 people. The tone that was used was condescending and to quote " what you see is what you get!! I can read but like anything if the customer rings is to ask for further clarification!!... More

We decided to go here for dinner last minute. We really felt like Steak and so glad we chose this place! The staff we're top notch! Made the dinning experience a stand out. Food was amazing! My partner and sister usually like their Steak well done and a lot of the time, it comes out dry, BUT NOT THIS PLACE!... More

It had been years since I had visited the Cork & Cleaver at Glenunga but I recently had lunch there and it was great. Very little has changed over the years, and in some ways it is like stepping into a time-warp, in the nicest possible way. Still the bar that greats you, ready for a pre-meal or post-meal beverage,... More

Whilst visiting our newly relocated daughter in Adelaide and we found this restaurant close to where they live and booked on psec. We were not disappointed. An excellent menu with very attentive service. That, combined with delicious and generously portioned meals, means we will definitely visit here again when next in Adelaide.

Four of us went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The meat was fantastic and the service was very good, we all thought it was a touch expensive but the quality of our dishes made up for it, until we asked for the bill, and we were surprised that they charged $10 for a average espresso coffee, which left us with...
