    Four of us had dinner ( sharing everything) and, as usual, it was fabulous! Best bets? The cheese plate with the truffle honey, the pizza with the pear ( last pizza on the list) and the ahi tacos, but really, I t was all good! A great local place for an early dinner - oh and the wine list is great too - we had the white Justin, which was perfect with all the food

    The service here cannot be beat but that may be because they are interested in turning the tables as soon as possible. No leisurely dining and mulling over each course while visiting. The shrimp tacos were good not great. The chilequiles were average. The wine we chose was excellent. The salad was fabulous. Won't be in a hurry to go back here but the food is certainly well prepared and served.

    Not a place to go when trying to get to know new friends because sharing w strangers is awkward. Otherwise, CnF is fantastically unique w a major fun vibe. Walking in, you know immediately you've made a good dining choice. The noise level expands as night progresses, which surprised me. It's so nice; can't you somehow swath the ceiling or carpet the floor? Service and food amazingly refreshing.

    This is a tapas "small plate" place that serves food built by people who obviously care what you think! Every Bite was delicious. The selection and variety is outstanding. Two of shared about 5 plates @ $10 average and had a bottle of nice wine. Very reasonable considering an all-inclusive meal would cost just as much at a fine restaurant.

Must haves; Ahi Poke Nachos, Brusketta, Fillet & Shrimp tacos, two different pizzas and ended with the Gelato and awesome Bread Pudding! Service was outstanding, thanks to our helpful and knowledgeable server Colette.

I am a restaurant veteran with 15+ years experience in fine dining working with amazing chefs and this food is among the elite. Christana was our server and guided us on the most amazing dishes. They are truly blessed to have her. It honestly does not get any better! I have already recommended Cork and Fork to many friends.

    Given the strip mall location, we were not sure what to expect. Once inside you forget you are in a strip mall. Service was wonderful, food was great, my only suggestion would be to not be so "exact" on the wine pours, especially after you have had a flight and order another 6oz. We had the grilled figs with burrata, the sriracha cauliflower, the ahi stack and the wild mushroom pizza--all fabulous, as well as the grilled scallops, just OK, too sweet for our taste. Couldn't finish the pizza and they happily packed it up. The red wine flight was a hit. We will go back as soon as we can and as our condo is currently rented for the season, we plan on recommending it in our welcome packet! Look forward to trying a class next door as well.

    Our first trip to cork and fork was overall a good experience but at first we were a bit concerned because the waitress for the table next to us was very unprofessional and rude to them, completely unnecesarily. If a customer complains about the pour of their glass of wine compared to ours, the easiest, best way to resolve it is to bring a bottle to their table and top them off. No if and or buts. The table did receive a little extra wine in their glasses upon request but the way the server handled it was so unprofessional, rude and uncomfortable, and it wasn't even happening to us!

    Perfect for modern small plate meals shared with friends. Moderate prices, but very fair value. Noteworthy wine list. While we could have ordered more selectively we did note a similarity to the flavor profiles; tangy-sweet-spicy on the dishes the the menu self-identitified as favorites, this was only a mild off note. All four widely experienced diners were very pleased and will be back.

    Four of us had the pleasure of dining at Cork & Fork. Of the multiple dishes we shared, we had a hard time ranking which was our favorite. Everything was truly delicious- food came out of the kitchen quickly, service was terrific, beautiful presentation and each dish had such unique combinations of flavors. I guess we had to give a slight edge to the ahi nachos since we ended up ordering a second round. They are not to missed!
