“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We loved this place! We had dinner here on a warm November night out on the patio. The ambiance is warm and romantic with the trees, lighting and heat lamps. There were couples and families and all seemed to be enjoying their evening.
I had the portobello ravioli and my boyfriend had the seared ahi. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wine list was nice too, offering a good variety and offered a few that were affordable by the glass ($7-8), which is nice since I had just spent money on wine all day!
Service was excellent too! I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice meal in a beautiful setting without being too expensive or pretentious.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is the perfect spot after a day of wine tasting. Sit out on the patio, pet Chester and relax with another glass of your favorite wine. Oh, it's not as tasty as you thought? Don't worry, they keep trying. And the food? Simply Terrific! If you are within 100 miles, it's worth the drive.

Awesome friendly staff! I have to admit that this is one of the most friendly places with professionalism. I would love it if they expand their brunch menu!

“VERY pleasant meal in California Sunshine”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had driven over from the coast, on our way to Napa and decided to stop for lunch. We discovered Corks and were surprised as we had never noticed it before in our travels in this area. We had lunch on the patio, accompanied by terrific local wines. Service was terrific, very attentive. Food was AWESOME and we had such a great time!

“I can't get Chester out of my mind”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner at Cork's. The food was terrific and I was able to eat gluten free without an issue. It was a little cold on the patio (the tables by the heaters were full) so we decided to eat in the garden room. It was perfect because the large sliding door was open (they asked us if we would like it closed, but we liked it open) which made us feel connected to the outside. I noticed this dog by someone's table in the garden and the waiter told me it was the owner's dog. I wanted to meet the dog and they called Chester to come to say hello. This may be one of the sweetest most gentle and mellow dogs ever. Don't worry if you don't like dogs, he is unobtrusive and may not be around the garden. But for those who love them, I so enjoyed spending time with him later. When we come back to the area, the restaurant is wonderful - so we'll enjoy - but I also can't wait to see Chester again.
