Staff was great and the food was wonderful. Our favorites was from the appetizers...duck tacos and beet salad. Really liked the atmosphere.

“A Gem”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We hit this restaurant by chance because it was near our hotel. It was fantastic. Very different menu and food presentation. The servers were very attentive. Probably not for kids.

“Two sliders? C'mon!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was Trip Advisor's top-rated restaurant in Palm Desert, and very probably worth the ranking. It was still rocking at 8:30 on Saturday night, so gone are the days when all the oldsters eat at 4 and are in bed by 6. We did not have a reservation,so we ended up taking a small table in the bar instead of waiting an hour and a half. The food was wonderful, but for about $12, they only serve you two sliders with a small side of french fries, which were to die for nevertheless. Can somebody please tell the chef at the Cork Tree that sliders come in threes? And toss a few more fires on the plate. It's only potatoes.

“What a find”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We selected this restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews. It lived up to the reviews. We got a reservation with an hour's notice, did not have to wait for a table and the food was terrific. We split meals and this was done with great style. Value received.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner because it was the night before we departed and it was close to our hotel (the JW). We ended up walking over. It was packed on a Monday night which was our first clue it would be delicious. We each had a wonderful salad (the special), yummy entrees and cocktails and a complimentary desert (I had mentioned the birthday when making the reservation). Service was very pleasant; could not have asked for a better experience.
