Terrible steaks with no flavor and completely dried out steaks. We brought this up to the waitstaff only to receive shrugged shoulders.

Cork and Cleaver is a higher end place. The service and food is over the top. The evenings can be a bit pricey but quality is worth more, We usually go during the day when portions are smaller and price is very fair.

30 visits, an FW pearl! Special dinner choice 19 yrs. Usually the neat and clean crowd from fancy blue jeans to millionaires. Best meats, perfectly temped Fillet Mignon, a Santa Fe shrimp app. with perfect spices. ALWAYS attentive smart wait staff that memorize several daily specials. Best fresh salad in FW.

The decor is dark and rather depressing. The salad bar is nice but not as good as it used to be. Not sure I'll go back as there are much better options. Service was great.

There were three of us and we ordered seafood. Fixed to perfection. Everything is always the best at this place.

Little high priced for everyday dinning for me. But we love to pick here for an anniversary. But they do have a nice salad bar for lunch. Never had a bad dinner. I think it is worth the money.

In town on a business trip and ate here on a recommendation from the hotel manager. Pricey for a business meal, but totally worth spending my own money on. It isn't formal, but I still felt a little underdressed in shorts (not embarrassed enough to deter me from eating though). I'll definitely eat here again.

This place is one of our favorites. Its so hard to beat the friendly staff, the great food and the awesome salad bar. We love to come here and celebrate almost all occasions. The selection of food and drinks is great.

Great service, great food, great place. Top shelf in the Fort Wayne area. I have eaten there for many years both socially and for business. Always top shelf in whatever you would could measure! Highly recommended!!!
