Cork & Cow
Special timesBefore going to the Franklin theatre to see Booker T, our group started our evening at Cork and Cow. We had such a lovely time starting with drinks, sharing a fabulous appetizer of fried avocado with ceviche, on to our entree and even had time for dessert . Would not have changed a thing!!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband took me there forMy husband took me there for my birthday and it was definatly a special evening. Our watiress, Jennifer was outstanding.
She was very knowlegable about the wine list as well as very informative about each of the steaks. We had the lobster tempura
for appetizer and it was wonderful! We shared a 20oz bone in porterhouse that lived up to everything Jennifer said it was and then some. We had the brocolli and it was served unlike I had ever had brocolli and it too was wonderful. They gave me my choice of any of their desserts as a brithday treat and we had the carrot cake with ice cream that was to die for.
All in all it was a great evening, romantic, special in every way thanks to all at Cork and Cow.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprisedWe went on a Sunday night for our anniversary. We had excellent service. The scallops appetizer was yummy and the steaks were wonderful as well. My husband had the Italian lettuce wedge and said it was almost his favorite part of the meal.
They gave us a free dessert for it being our nniversary. We ordered the chocolate molten cake w fresh vanilla bean ice cream. You can never go wrong w chocolate in my book. Could taste that it was made w real cocoa.
The restaurant had a romantic feel w it's three chandliers and in old historic in building. It I pricey as others have compared it to Kayne Prime. It's a different atmosphere than KP but just As yummy.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNo need to travel...If you're looking for a fantastic steak house, there is no need to travel to Nashville if you live in Williamson Co. Cork & Cow is great: wonderful food, great service and a very cool building. Impressive wine list to boot...6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe tried cork and cow this past Friday night for the first time and were impressed. It was a pretty small space which we liked, but I would recommend reservations. The staff was very nice and gave great recommendations for our food and drinks.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCame throughI have severe food allergies. I was invited out on a very important dinner date. I heard about Cork and Cow so I called ahead and spoke with the manager in hopes of avoiding all the embarrassing explanations. We were seated promptly at 8:15 and were immediately welcomed by both the manager and our assigned waiter, whom had been prompted and prepared prior to our arrival.. He discreetly suggested a lovely rib eye and winked ..LOL .. The food was so deliciously prepared I felt not one bit deprived. If you have food challenges and want to enjoy a wonderfully delicious meal, without your date knowing, then you must visit this restaurant.. My eatery of choice forever..Thank you Cork and Cow...5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh end steakhouse in FranklinWorthy of any big city, but with small town ambience.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Large wine list.Good food. Large wine list. Nice for one or two couples.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerSVC outstanding-great timing on delivery and questioning. The appetizers were creative. Try the Lobster app. We split a salad thanks to the recommendation of the waiter and it was perfect portion. She had the scallop/shrimp/gnocchi and it was very tasty. I had the aged strip and I think it was the best steak I have had in years! I asked why so good and the aging along with cooked over a wood fire was the explanation. I entertain clients at all the steakhouses in Middle TNthis area and that strip is better than all of the area's strips by far! I have also entertained in Chicago and NY at the famous steakhouses there and they cannot touch that strip!
Excellent martinis, good wine selection, good scotch selection.

Scallops too salty otherwise very good. Lamb chops excellent.
Several large groups made it a little too loud.
Will try again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe porkchop was great. Bone-InThe porkchop was great. Bone-In filet was ok comparing to other steakhouses in the Nashville area. Service was a bit slow given that type of restraunt/price-range it cost to eat here.
Overall, I'd go back. Downtown Franklin is a good date night and the food was good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedMy husband and I went to Cork & Cow for our one year anniversary. We had a wonderful experience. The restaurant is beautiful, with exposed brick and chandeliers. Our waitress was great. Food was delicious. We will definitely return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but good!We had a very nice meal. Food was great and service was very good. Over $300 for two...but we had an appetizer, bottle of wine steaks (2 sides) and dessert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than NYCI spent the first of the week at a conference in New York eating at 3 well known, expensive steak restaurants. Cork and Cow was better by far than any of them. The cocktails were fantastic, and the food and wine were phenomenal. I would recommend the Silly Goose cocktail, the asparagus salad, the spinach salad, the filet, the scalloped potatoes and the broccoli. We were too stuffed to eat dessert. I plan on going to the Cork and Cow anytime I'm in Franklin.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodOur meals were fantastic, and the menu is very innovative. The lamb ribs appetizer was a favorite.
The cocktails are hand crafted and unique to the area. I would highly recommend this restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Server Ever!Wonderful dinner with the BEST server ever! Brandy is a gem.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic First VisitFrom the excellent service (Rachel was incredible) to the amazing appetizers (tuna tartar!!), from the fun cocktails to the delicious entrees, could not recommend Cork and Cow any higher. We will be back!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the DriveWas a longer drive than usual from Hendersonville due to the rain that evening, but still well worth it! The meal was fantastic! Definitely try the bone in filet, very possibly the best steak my wife and I have ever had! Apps, salads and sides were not the normal fare, and all were excellent. We'll be back to try the ones we missed. Service: Incredible! I followed other Open Table reviewers and requested Shane. Great guy, really knows his menu, and he paced our evening perfectly. C & C is one of the few Open Table reservations I've made that they actually noted our special occasion, and made us feel special for our anniversary.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were top rate. Wine list was very good. A bit noisy, but overall a very fun place.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner! Our serverWonderful dinner! Our server was very friendly; however, she messed up the bill several times and had to keep redoing that. Best steak and cooked to perfection. Loved the lobster mac and cheese but boy was that expensive! Glad to have this restaurant in Franklin. We will be back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the relaxed feelWe loved the relaxed feel of this place-small, but yet cozy. The rack of lamb and fillet were outstanding.Some of the best food in Williamson County! Service was tip top and very friendly.We will definitely go back to the Cork and Cow!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely too noisy!! DefinitelyAbsolutely too noisy!! Definitely need some noise baffles or dampeners. The noise detracts from what could have been the best dinner ever. The flavor of all the entrees & sides are outstanding!! The cocktails are unique & enhance the dinner. Except for the distracting noise volume...an excellent dining experience!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff and deliciousFriendly staff and delicious food. Only drawback is that the restaurant is really noisy-which does not appear to be avoidable regardless of your table location.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steak was very good qualityThe steak was very good quality and cooked exactly as ordered. Definitely on the best steaks in the Franklin area.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience!We had an amazing experience at Cork + Cow. We chose to eat here for the "Dining Out To Fight Aids" fundraiser because they were donating 50% of their proceeds for the night to AIDS research along with many other restaurants. The entire experience (from our greeting upon arrival to our departure) far exceeded my expectations. Our server, Kristin was extremely personable and attentive. While she remained very busy all night, we felt like her only customer. We enjoyed the best ribeye, filet and scallops in town and the wine list was very extensive. A return visit is definitely in our future.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks were excellent,The steaks were excellent, as good as I've had anywhere. The peppercorn sauce was a disappointment, very sweet instead of spicy. The Mushroom pudding was awful - no taste. The Asparagus with Bearnaise was very good. The bread loaf was dry and tasteless. The Lobster appetizer had really nice lobster tempura, but the tarragon sauce was not a good choice - too strong a flavor for lobster. The wine list was excellent. Service was generally good, but on occasion seemed to be missing in action.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery bit as delicious asEvery bit as delicious as it is expensive. The filet was tender and flavorful and perfect with the Asparagus with the Egg on top! Interesting drink menu for those who don't want the same old same ole. Don't be surprised when your tab arrives for about $60 a person. It is pricey, like all great steak houses but you won't begrudge paying the bill because the place is terrific!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new gemRestaurant called to confirm reservations - which is always a good sign. Table was waiting when we arrived. Server - Shane - was fantastic. Took every order without writing down and each drink and course was delivered to the right person ( group of 6). Knew the menu and preparation well and made good suggestions. Food was very good - and served hot. Didn't care for the mushroom bread pudding but rest of dinner was great. Everyone ordered differently prepared steaks - all were correct.Molten chocolate cake was to die for - should have ordered it first. One of our party left credit card on table - Shane chased us into the parking lot to bring it back. We will definitely return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great place! The steaksWhat a great place! The steaks and scallops were cooked perfectly. House potatoes were delicious and special salad with mozzarella was fantastic. Definitely a place to go on a special occasion. Prices are a little high but you get what you pay for. Best eatery I have been to in a long time in Franklin. Waitress and service was great as well. Never had to ask for anything. Will return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was nicely presentedFood was nicely presented and flavorful.

This time we enjoyed 4 delightful sides.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our second time diningThis is our second time dining at Cork & Cow.
