Diner Reviews
  • "Although brief, the menu features a good range of foods. The food and its presentation are outstanding. Specials truly are special. The wine selection is similarly outstanding, as are the desserts. A wonderful dining experience."

  • "We don't have many date nights so when we do go out, we usually go to Morton's in Scottsdale. This time, we wanted something a little closer to home with a more diverse menu. Success! It was difficult to decide on our dinner because everything on the menu was so tempting. In the end, I went with the seafood special and my husband ordered the Hanger steak. Our waiter, Josh helped us select a perfect wine to compliment both of our entrees. We could not have been more pleased and we'll be going back again and again. I can't wait to try more of the menu items."

  • "The cork in chandler is my favorite restaurant in the valley. Chef Brian, Chef Danielle and their respected staffs execut at the highest level. As a chef myself I love this. The pride taken in every aspect of service at Cork shows true passion for our craft. I enjoy spending my hard earned money there it is tribute to a job well done."

  • "Food: 4 stars out of 5. Service: not there. This was the third time I'd eaten there in as many months, and none of those times was it all that busy. Yet the service consistently suffers."

  • "I needed a great place to impress a business client and the Cork delivered on all fronts! The food, wine and service were impeccable (as always). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the ability to converse without shouting, and the overall dining experience. It was perfect!"

  • "Very talented, expressive & inventive chef. Look for the wine list - presented on an iPad."

  • "Terrible service. The place was almost empty. Our server basically disappeared. This is a small plates place but - the beet salad was $12 and had one tiny piece of beet and a total of about two bites of salad. The rabbit appetizer which was $19 had two pieces of what they said was rabbit that were perhaps one ounce each. The rabbit was tough and tasteless. We could not eat it. The entrees were OK but not memorable. By the time the main courses arrived we had lost our appetite. Despite the place being almost empty our three courses meal took 2 1/2 hours. Luckily it was quiet so we at least had conversation."

  • "We celebrated a friend's birthday here. Beautiful evening so we ate on the outside patio to watch the beautiful Arizona sunset. Cocktails were tasty with the latest mixology ingredients. The menu was creative and loaded with fresh ingredients. The petroleum sole and steelhead trout were excellent, but the best entree was the lamb from a Virginia farm, the best we have tasted. We will return to sample the changing seasonal menus."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "During the 90 minutes we spent at Cork, the pastry chef spent at least 80 of them chatting with her friends at a nearby four-top. We would never dream of disturbing her in the middle of performing such a valuable function, especially on company time, so we were forced to skip dessert."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Has been our favorite restaurant for years. However, our recent visit wasn't up to the usual standards. I'd pass on the pork belly appetizer which sounded so good on the menu but didn't work in reality. We're planning to go back for a "chef's choice" meal and hope that it's a good as we're use to getting here."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Cork is one of our favorite restaurants for family special occasions or a romantic dinner fur just us two. The menus is small and changes every few weeks because the chefs specialize if using locally grown seasonal items. If you can get there between 5-6 pm, the Sunset menu os a great bargain. The taste and presentation of the food is very good and the service is wonderful. Less expensive than going to Ruth Chris or Flemings and the quality is better."

  • "We were meetiing friends from out of town at the Sheraton White Horse Pass - and looked for a nice dinner nearby. Cork was a delightful 'find' -- in a suburban strip in quiet Chandler - we found great food, marvelous wine selections and awesome service - fit for the special occasion we came to celebrate. Our meal of both fish and meat was cooked to perfection, and the specials we tried were truly that - Special. Dessert of Banana Creme Pie was not to be missed. The Ipad-based wine list was a cool techno touch -- and all in all - it was a delightful night. Highly recommended!"

  • "Wonderful restaurant, Food was fantastic. We had a great night and meal. They did offer the special when the waitress took our order than I was told they didn't have any more so I had to choose from the menu. Still a wonderful dish. Service seemed a little slow but that was O.K. as we were very relaxed. I would return and recommend it."

  • "We had a specially-prepared chef's tasting and wine-pairing dinner for six. Un.be.lieve.able! Food was spectacular, wines amazing, and service superb. We'll probably be back even though this place was 25 miles from our home!"

  • "We were celebrating my husband's birthday doubled as a date night. His name was printed on the menu which just gave the dinner a little personal touch! We had a great experience if you like going out to a nice, fancy, and chic restaurant. The food was amazing! The service was great! The music was nice. And the wine list was varied! They mixed up my dinner order and were very apologetic and went far and beyond to make our experience great! Would recommend to a friend!"

  • "We found Cork a few years ago and it has become our favorite restaurant when we visit Phoenix. We brought newcomers this year and celebrated our last night in Phoenix together with dinner at Cork--it did not disappoint! The food and service were top-notch, excellent attention and description from our waiter. The ambience in the restaurant is very intimate--quite a surprise. Cork is situated in a strip mall (so easy parking), but the moment you walk in the door, you realize you are somewhere special. We will continue to dine at Cork whenever we vacation in Phoenix."

  • "Our Waiter was great. The service help clean up after each course a little too fast. Felt a little rushed, even though the resturant didn't seem too busy considering it was Saturday, Feb. 15th and our reservation was at 5:15,"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food here is always top quality and amazing, the special menus are always a real treat when they are offered. We have eaten here about 10 times in they last two years and all the meals were a wonderful culinary experience."

  • "Well done, chef / proprietor owned (non-commercial), European flavor / plating and feel. We will be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I recently dined at Cork because of the fact that the owners and chef had a background from Lons Hermosa. The atmosphere is ok, nothing special, the food was great but the service was some of the worst we have had. I cannot recommend this place to family or friends because of the unfriendly service."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Great place for fine dining and good food. It is also a great place to explore different types of food with the Sunday special meals and the chef's pick meals. I have had a couple of things I didn't like but it was due to exploration and personal taste. I have never been disappointed by this restaurant."

  • "Dinner at Cork was superb from items on the menu to specials. Dinners were delicious, robust in flavor and generous in portions."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Ordered three items - Prelude, Salad, Entree. Prelude (Pork Belly) was excellent; waiter failed to hear the salad selection, so did without; the entree (Pork Tenderloin) tasted a little "off" and the vegetable was scorched. Did not eat the burned veggie and should not have eaten the entree, as I had an "upset" most of the night. The wine was excellent; however, did have to remind the waiter to bring the wine. The martini was outstanding. For the past six years, Cork was our favorite restaurant, no matter the cost. After this experience, I cannot think of a single thing the management could do to get us to return."

  • "My experience at Cork was a good one. The restaurant has a very upper end feel and vibe. Interesting menu choices fit for a foodie, which am really not. That said, the food and service were exceptional and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. This place is not inexpensive by any means, but was worth the price for the experience I had."

  • "We had a group of 3 couples that had dinner at Cork. Two of us arrived about 45 mins early for our reservation so we could have a drink beforehand and were pleasantly surprised that our table was already ready AND that it was in a private room just off the main dining room. We enjoyed several cocktails, wines and apps while waiting for the remainder of our party. Dinner also did not disappoint. The food was all spectacular, but the highlight for all of us was our server Joshua. He is probably the best server i have had with any dining experience. He was knowledgeable, timely, funny, and everything else you could ask for in a server. If I wasn't from out of town i would certainly go back at least once a week to enjoy this experience."

  • "This was our second time at Cork and it did not disappoint. Food is fabulous, highly recommend the salad with caramelized popcorn, sounds strange but excellent and apparently very popular per our waiter. It is so great to have a restaurant of this quality here in the East Valley as we would normally expect to go the Scottsdale or Biltmore area to see great culinary offerings such as what Cork offers. We'll definitely be coming back for more!"

  • "When we gave our dinner order, the restaurant was not as busy as it became later in the evening. Our party of 4 gave our dinner order and each had 3 courses. Unfortunately, when the entries arrived, one of them was WRONG. The server correctly apologized and took that entry back to the kitchen. While the other three people ate their entries, the 4th person was left watching the rest eat up their food before it got cold. We all gave the 4th person sample of our own food to pass the time. Surely Cork should have tried to make adjust ment to this inconvenience by some kind of compensation, such as a free course either as an additional course or adjusting our bill for the mistake!"

  • "I've eaten here before and it was great. This time there were two VERY loud young women at the bar that greatly reduced our overall pleasure. They should have been asked be quiet or leave. This would not prevent me from returning, since I suspect it is a rare occurrence. If it happened again, it would be my last visit. Being older, I was not thrilled with the alternative music being played."
