“Always fabulous food, wine and atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We have been to The Village Cork many times, including twice in the last week, and always find the food to be delicious and often unique and imaginative. The service has consistently been as attentive as is reasonable to expect when the restaurant is extremely busy, as it was last night. We chose to enjoy a red wine flight each since they are only offered on week nights and were not disappointed. The choices were left to our server, with our input, and once again, the wines delivered were excellent and appropriate to the descriptions of our individual palates.
I enjoyed the soup of the day which was a flavorful vegetable barley and my daughter enjoyed a fabulous tomato salad. I noticed the last two times I had soup they were described as hearty and I did not find them to be so. They were just delicious. I had the duck confit for dinner and she had the flat iron steak entree. Both were excellent. We shared a side of grilled green beans, as they didn't have the usual brussel sprouts last night. The beans were delayed and so they were "gifted" to us as a customer accommodation. It was very busy although not the weekend and yet we felt very well cared for and appreciated. The Village Cork is consistently one of our favorite restaurants in Denver!

“Poor service + Poor Food All In One”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We came by one night and met a delightful woman who appreared to be the hostess. She apologized because the restaurant was closed for a private party. She was so pleasant, we promised to come back the next night. We did, and unfortunately had a seriously rude and inattentive male waiter - the type that barely acknowledges you, pretends he doesnt see you when your drinks have been empty for 20 minutes and you are trying to get his attention, and then brings mediocre food, without bringing condiments, bread, or appropriate tableware (so you have to 'ask' him for a favor again). This type of waiter makes you promise yourself you will never come back. We had goat cheese stuffed peppers which were oily and flavorless. The taglatelle was better, but didnt make up for the tasteless seafood entree and this miserable waiter. Our only poor dining experince in Denver was at the Village Cork.

“Wine Bar becomes Top Restaurant”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

What used to be an OK local wine bar has stepped up its game and become a great place for Foodies too. With the addition of a new chef the Village Cork has become one of our favorite places to eat whether we are looking for a a selection of appetizers before going to the theatre or as a place for a full slow dinner. Our favorites tend to be the seafood and vegetarian dishes which focus highly on local caught fish and local produce but i have enjoyed to lamb and steak as well. As you would expect the wine pairing recommendations are excellent.

“My Happy Place - Feels like Home (with an Amazing Chef)”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Had an amazing meal at the bar tonight - vegetarian wellington and veggie mac and cheese shared with a friend - wonderfully rich and complex. Would like to try everything on the menu, especially the Duck Prosciutto (my son's two favorite foods rolled into one!). Felt like I was home - everyone was so warm and welcoming. Wines were wonderful. Sitting at the bar, we got to watch the chefs in action - definitely a lot of fun; again, made me feel very "at home."

Atmosphere was casual, homey, warm; you could tell there were lots of regulars. (Wish I lived down the street!)

Go for Happy Hour - 4:30 to 6:30 M-F, half price wines by the glass.

“Great hidden treasure”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Low profile, neighborhood restaurant. The apps and main entrees are really good. Soup was great, low amounts of sodium and very tasty. Entree well prepared and creative. The staff has always been friendly. The only complaint is the wine list. Considering this is a wine bar, the selection was not great, the glass prices were outrageous. I was told they are redoing the wine list, however, they r open NOW. Cab for $20 a glass, please!!! They were flexible on that price and the $70+ price for bottle. Hopefully, they will get the value/price thing under control. It is worth the visit....
