Food here was great. We ordered an array of plates and almost all were perfect. The wine we ordered was great and the waiter was helpful in guiding us. That said, front of house service was iffy. No one greeted us when we walked in--sort of ignored us standing there and talked among themselves. We also had a reservation (one of the reasons we chose Cork over some of the other neighborhood restaurants) and while the hostess was aware of reservation, we were asked to wait at the bar for about 20-30 minutes after our intended reservation time. Definitely not enough to ruin the night but a bit frustrating.

The food at the restaurant was excellent and it is a must when in the area. We ordered 1 of everything on the warm side of the menu. The mushrooms, avocado and steak were fabulous. The ambience is warm and comfortable. Unfortunately we had a very stuck up server with bad breath.

Love the concept: limited choice of small plates cold and hot, good list of wine with pairing suggestion for each plate. Sharing is expected and encouraged. The three of us had 4 small plates; mackerel, duck confit, eggplant flat bread and avocado on toasts. All of them delicious. To top it all, we shared a goat chese cake that was excellent. Prices are reasonable, from 8 to $15 plates, and 12 to $16 for glass of wine. Local is unpretentious, cozy and feels like a neighborhood bar. Overall, very nice.

Very nice casual setting. We only planed to have drinks, then move on, but stayed and had heavy Tapas. The Cider flight was wonderful - dry. The food was very good and easy for the Tapas style we moved into. Our server was a rock star; friendly and very knowledgeable with menu. Such a great time sitting outside and relaxing.

The food and wine are amazing here! The service is even better. The fries and the ketchup are a must try as well as the goat cheese cheesecake. Both are a HIT!
