This was our 2nd visit. The first time was just my wife and me and we shared appetizers, a main course and tried different wines. We sat at the "bar" and watched Carlos, the chef, cook. The waitress was very helpful in letting us sample several different wines before settling on what we wanted. The food was great, well prepared and the sauces subtle. Carlos gave us a taste of his unique Duck l'Orange sauce which was fabulous. We returned a month later for a family birthday celebration (our oldest son's 18th). Again the wait staff was cheerful and helpful and all five of us had the Duck l'Orange for the main course and a cheese platter and escargot for appetizers. Carlos' version of escargot was unusual making it a substantial appetizer with a unique sauce.
While dining with children is not the norm at Village Cork, they made our boys (all teenagers) feel very welcome. It's bit pricey for a family outing, but my wife and I will certainly return on a regular basis.

The Village Cork provides a nice relaxing atmosphere for dinner -- highly recommended.. Overall the food was very good. Somewhat disappointing -- given its relatively high price -- was the cheese board appetizer which had excellent but very little cheese, complemented with olives, nuts, etc., but not much in terms of cheese. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with the Village Cork for a relaxing evening in a nice atmosphere with good food.

It's a nice, warm atmosphere. Open kitchen, lots of dark wood. If I lived within walking distance, I would probably return, but would not make more than that effort. Service was very slow, perhaps due to not enough servers and only 2 chefs in the kitchen. Food, when it came, was good, but presentation and preparation did not justify the time spent waiting for it. Also a little meager for the price, but not by a lot. Left with neither a great reaction nor a bad reaction. It's an average place and good for a local visit when you don't feel like making dinner. But not a special occasion place.

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!

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.
