Diner Reviews
  • "I expected more. Though the service was excellent, I thought the entrees would be very unique and tasty. It was so noisy we could not hear each other talk."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • " For starters the french onion soup was like a weak Lipton's instant and they made a big production of how hot it was but in reality it was only just warm. The wedge salad was the worse I have ever had anywhere with almost no dressing and a teaspoon of cheese. The porterhouse was cooked as I requested and quite tender but contained a lot of grizzle. Steak should have steak fries but that was absent from the menu. The baked potato was dry with only a drop of butter and sour cream in the cups. The string beans were raw and bitter from under cooking. Very few summery wines on the list and no rose at all. I could go on. I am not cheap when I dine out with my wife and friends but this place is expensive for a just OK meal. There are better."

  • "I knew while Corked was still being renovated that I wanted to have my 21st birthday dinner there. I wanted a small celebration with my family, but I didn't want to go somewhere boring. I set my reservation and had to make changes multiple times. The staff was very good and made accommodations for each change that I made. I arrived on my birthday and they made me feel very special. I will always brag about my first legal drink being titled "a gentlemen's gin" and it was truly delicious. Corked has a wonderful staff and is a stunning restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We were seated at the table by the restrooms and kitchen immediately. So we asked to be seated outside instead. The restaurant was empty when we got there and they wanted us to sit at literally the worst table in the house?!?"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Presentation, service, and food was excellent. Don't like the measured wine pours but nice wine list."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Corked for the first time to Celebrate our 35th Wedding Annivesary. We went there specifically since we were told that their Scallops were terrific. We made reservations for 6:15pm on a Sunday. When we got there, the restaurant was rather empty and we were seated in a corner of an empty room by ourselves (perfect to cellebrate our Annivesary) within 5 minutes a party of 4 was seated within 2 feet of us when there was an entirely empty room that could have been used. My wife asked for a Daiquiri and was told that there wasn't a blender in the building and then the final straw - - we were told that they were out of scallops - - after paying $20 for two drinks we left with no intention of ever returning"

  • "We had dinner at the Corked Wine Bar before a theater performance and thought that the experience, overall, was very good. The menu is pretty broad and had plenty of things that looked appealing. The food was good as well with plenty of flavor. The only downside was that the restaurant was very noisy, so talking to each other was a little more difficult and because of the level of music you had to raise your voice quite a bit to be heard, which led to almost literally being able to follow a conversation being held at the next table."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great food, drinks, atmosphere, and service. Hopefully they maintain the quality unlike other high end restaurants in the valley that are on the decline."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Best Ribeye I ever had and my wife spoke highly about the NY Strip. Great place to go for a youthful chic atmosphere but still very upscale."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "It may be pricey, but its worth it in the end. Come with an appetite...you are going to need it."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everything was wonderful. We had the mussels for an appetizer and they were great. My husband had the rib eye and I had the strip steak. Both were cooked to perfection. Service was very good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "....serving less than mediocre cuisine. Our server and the front desk hostesses were absolutely wonderful. A steak house that serves below grade filet with faux grill marks on it should be ashamed! Get with the times, as the cook should be serving organic grass fed beef! NOT steaks from the frozen food section at a low rent grocer."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Don't be surprised when your waiter has no clue about the food or drinks on the menu and when your plates sit in front of you for more than 20 minutes after you are done eating. You've been warned by me and others. I should have listened. 3 items that I ordered were not available (Bell's 2 Hearted Beer, lamp chops, pork chop. I was stuck eating a NY Strip steak which was marginal. This restaurant doesn't serve "Prime" beef. They serve "Choice" beef. This is the same quality that's served in Outback or Lone Star. That might sound snobbish, but when you're charging $50 for a steak like The Palm or Capital Grill, it should be Prime beef. The restaurant itself is nice and has a lot of potential, but the service and food is marginal at best."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Awesome place, never been dissapointed, will go back many more times"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Food was excellent - I recommend the Shrimp Limoncello app and my Filet Medallions Au Poivre was cooked perfectly. Great wine selection. Service was good - we could have been checked on more often. Decor is trendy/upscale. Lighting set the mood for a very cool bar scene. We went on a Monday night and it was busy... reservations are necessary. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Food was delicious. Had a bit of a wait but wex weren't in a rush. Restaurant is loud. Food and service very good."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My scallops, salad, and meat and cheese tray, and French onion soup were excellent. Both my husband and our friend's husband had a rib eye steak which was half fat. We were not asked how the steaks were or we would have mentioned it."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was our first time there and we dined outside. We had the Filet and Ribeye along with bacon wrapped scallops. Outstanding!! Great bar inside. It was worth it. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Can't say anymore than the ratings already imply. Great ambience, service, food, and bar selection. Will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My Fiancé and I celebrated our engagement this past week and had a wonderful evening. The food and service were top notch!!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "It is such a shame that this fine establishment and amazing eatery that produces awesome and tasty dishes are hampered by continual poor and inadequate service professionals. Too many issues and complaints to list. I must question the management and training, must be lack of expereince or care to it's customers. It will eventually catch up with them based on menu and wine list pricing."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Arrived around 5:30, July 4th, plenty of seating available. We were seated near the main street window, very nice. The meal was excellent from the appetizer to the dessert. Steak was delicious and prepared perfectly. Service was good, but a tad on the slow side. More attention could have been made to the empty water glasses, but then I think there should be a bus boy taking care of that around the restaurant. Pretty big floor space to take care of. This is a minor concern. Overall, great place to dine and food was excellent."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Try the crab cakes...out of this world. Great servers. All around a lovely experience."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Corked has DELICIOUS food!! Would definitely go back again. My only complaint is having sat next to the window there were multiple ANNOYING flys! Other than that it was great experience! Good wine too!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "It was really hot in the restaurant and we could have moved up front instead of in the back next to the hot kitchen as there was no one else in the restaurant. Additionally, there are very little vegetarian items and none are a protein. That is very insulting to vegetarians as well as people who want to have healthier non-flesh options."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We enjoyed our meal and especially the wine list. Will come again but not for a business meeting."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food, the wine, the service and the atmosphere - great!!"

  • "This was our first time at CORKED and everyone in our party enjoyed it very much. Food was very good and we look forward to eating here again."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent food and wine list. It was fun to try small pours of different wines. My only complaint is the noise level. As a group of 4 for dinner, we needed to shout to each other to be heard. I recommended this restaurant to others, but not for a romantic evening or a larger group of people."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great new restaurant on Main Street. Food, service, and decor were excellent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great experience. will be there again real soon. good food, good wine, beautiful decor. we enjoyed it very much"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We went during restaurant week because the prices are a little out of our budget but the prix fixe menu option that week made it possible for us to try this newer restaurant in downtown Bethlehem. We enjoyed our meal but have had similar fare for less cost. Overall food was good but nothing special that you couldn't find elsewhere. The service was very good. I've seen other reviews that praise the staff and that I can agree with. Basically it has a trendy atmosphere, great staff, and what we considered overpriced food and beverages. We wouldn't go back but if you base you experience on atmosphere and price you will enjoy it."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Our dinner was outstanding. Starting with our great server, Michelle. She explained the beer selection for my husband and brought him samples from the list she suggested. The steak was exceptional and cooked perfect. The server had us cut our steaks to be sure the steak was cooked to our request; and they were. The mashed potatoes were as delicious as potatoes at Grandmas Sunday dinner. And we finished with two different desserts and we couldn't decide which one we liked best. Corked is a definite return soon restaurant. Open Table is a great way to make our reservation."

  • "fortunately for me i dined there twice in one week on the 26th of june our waiter was exceptional! we really enjoyed him. can't remember his name but long blonde hair in ponytail---he helped to make the evening very memorable. great job!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Our Server, Shannon, was excellent especially when we identified one of our party that has some food allergies. She was diligent to make sure how things were prepared. The food was DEE-LISH! The ambiance was great. My only item of slight disappointment was the noise level that you hear while sitting in the dining area. It was hard to carry on a conversation at our dinner table without constantly leaning in. **We were sitting in a booth directly on the other side of the bar area. I will absolutely go back as we did enjoy it, and I will ask to be seated somewhere else to see if it's any better. Thank you."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Corked had a great ambiance an exceptional service. My husband and I very much liked the 3 course menu for restaurant week, but after looking at the regular menu prices we don't think we'd ever return without a special. The food is good, but not exceptional enough to warrent such prices. Moreover, the portion sizes did not really make me feel like I was eating something that would cost that much. They were not consistent between tables or even me and my husband. I would recommend this restaurant to somebody who just wants a nice romantic night out and has extra money around."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The food here was amazing! The dick confeit spring rolls were great! The only real complaint was that the waiter seemed to forget us at times."

  • "Sorry to say but we had the worst wait service that we have ever encountered! Extremely noisey!!!!!"

  • "We were there celebrating my birthday and I had an intimate group with me. It was the perfect size. Came in first for a cocktail at the bar, which was already hopping - amazing martinis. Then we sat down for dinner. Great service, and they were prompt. I also like when restaurants give you time to actually enjoy each meal you receive and drinks. Meaning, they don't rush you into eating and getting out. We were also there while they were filming a commercial and will be able to view come July -now that was fun!"
