“Great Brunch”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

The brunch was very nice. Excellent selection of entrees which were served promptly. The complimentary mimosas were a nice touch. Fun time.

“BEST restaurant in Chandler and southeast valley”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

LOVE this place. Have been here many times over the 2-3 years it has been in Chandler. A little expensive, but worth it. Seems like the fine dining establishments are only in Scottsdale, so love the fact they came to south Chandler, as we will not drive if we are going to have some wine. Great wine list and a beautiful restaurant. The outside seating is excellent during most of the year. The menu changes and shows off the sheer talent of the Chef. These are small, tapas like, plates, but very well done and beautiful to look at.

“Flawless - food, service, ambiance”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Could hardly tell we were in a strip mall! Beautiful surroundings, very personalized service, and GREAT food! Don't take a person who won't eat anything except well-done tenderloins cuz they ain't got'em! Very imaginative menu - it was my birthday and they had Happy Birthday M___ printed on the top! They are not shy about charging commensurately! The guys out on the patio smoking cigars made us hurry for our car!

“Great location for a special event couple dinner”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Went to Cork with my husband for our anniversary, we'd both been there before for another previous special occasion (my bday). We both remembered phenomenal food and were banking on the same thing. This time he ordered 2 protein dishes: the Duck and then the Pork Belly and I had the Rabbit Risotto and the Lamb Chop - He really enjoyed the pork (loved it) but not the duck so much (personal taste); I had a very hard time eating the risotto (my 1st portion) but did because, heck, I didn't want to insult the chef (I don't know how to quite put this, but the smell of all the ingredients reminded me of.. hate to say this.. vomit). I did, though really enjoy my lamb dish (it was phenomenal - crispy outside, tasty fat, nice and red on the inside, great portion). The wine bottle we had was excellent and the service was fantastic - it was (beside the risotto), a perfect setting for a special couple dinner. In retrospect, I probably should have said something about the risotto, but I guess I felt I could just shove it down and the vomit smell reminder would subside... unfortunately, my stomach responded otherwise and I felt ill after dinner but I can't say I can pin it on any one thing. I still think they have great dishes, but maybe my palate wasn't refined enough for the rabbit risotto flavors.

“Extremely disappointing”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

Since moving to chandler it’s been a real struggle to find somewhere good to eat, I was very excited about trying this place as I had heard great reviews, the menu is really well conceived and the wine list is great. First impressions were great, the staff were welcoming and again I was really enthused by a great menu. My foie gras, was nicely cooked and everyone was happy with their appetizers, there was some rather stogy gnocchi but not terrible. For the main I ordered the duck comfit, imaging it falling off the bone. It was nothing short of offensively bad. Tough, rubbery and dry. I’m sure based on the other reviews I just received the one dud meal, but I had some expectation of this place and was horrified that they would serve something so badly cooked. I don’t think I’ll be going back here again.
