Corks at Russian River Vineyards
Great outdoor seatingWe came here for Mother's day brunch and it was fantastic. We went to the outdoor tasting "room" and bought a bottle of wine to bring to the table. Then we sat at our table and enjoyed a leisurely meal. The service was very good. The food was good. All the men ordered steak and eggs which they reported was cooked very well. I ordered the farmers plate which was good but a little bland. It could have used some more flavor. It was near the end of the day and Mother's day so I have no complaints. We will definately be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable special occasionWe held our son's college graduation dinner here. Our party of ten was treated with warm, efficient and considerate service and everyone thought the food was delicious. We had a chance to tell the chef in person when he visited our table during the meal. They were very accommodating to our requests and the overall experience in a beautiful wine country setting made for a very successful and memorable special occasion for our family and friends. One of them told me later, "That restaurant was a real find!"5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food & Step back in time!What a special place! A perfect blend of contemporary and "70's". Truly the place to stop for lunch when wine tasting in the Russian River Valley. My husband had fish&chips..he enjoyed but next time would get that huge burger. The menu just has a plain cesaer but the server was happy to have the kitchen add chicken...delicious. Also, since the tasting room is right there,the server suggested we go taste while our meal was being prepared. We could pick our wine and bring it back to the table. PERFECT. We chose a nice Rose and thoroughly enjoyed the wine and our meal. We will return!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPassport Weekend DiningA pleasant evening, enjoyed the food and the waitstaff was
professional, attentive and friendly.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect wine country diningCorks is located in beautiful West Sonoma County. It has a winery tasting room on site as well. The outdoor dining is very peaceful and beautiful. Your table will be visited by the resident dog, Chester, who is very endearing. The wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable and gave my husband a free birthday desert. The award winning wine we had was excellant and reasonably priced, didn't seem to be marked up at all. Our food was delicious! Vegan and vegetarian options are available and the portobello "steak" with mashed potatoes are a favorite of mine from previous visits. This time two of us had sea bass and scallops and the third person had salmon. All dishes were cooked perfectly and gone in no time! Our deserts were also great4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Birthday DinnerA novelty of this restaurant is that it is one of the few (3?) in Sonoma County that are an integral part of a winery. Only two of us dined there, but the facility can accommodate large parties and events (e. g., weddings). Seating can be either inside or out. Wine list is excellent(and includes many wines other than from the accompanying winery.) The charcuterie starter plate was very good. The number of entree items is not large, but all are excellent, and have recommendations for appropriate wine pairings. Sitting outdoors, one can hear the calls of birds in the neighboring woods. Excellent service by the staff. The facility itself is somewhat rustic, but the food and wine are a great experience!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for the fixed menuWe went for the fixed menu Easter Brunch. They had several selections to choose from, all tempting. The food was excellent, as usual. We were seated in the enclosed patio as it was raining that day so the noise level wasn't bad. We walked through the main diningroom on the way to our table and it seemed a bit loud. I would definitely recommmend the enclosed patio room or outdoor dining when the weather is better.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter Brunch.We went for Easter Brunch. The menu offered many wonderful choices including vegetarian options and the price was very reasonable for the quality of the food. The vibe was warm and friendly. The staff were all pleasant and attentive. We sat at a corner table with a view. There was a spring storm complete with thunder and lightening that we were able to watch. There was a large deck designed for outside dining in more reasonable weather. I will certainly return and recommend it to my friends.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFrankie is a great server.Frankie is a great server. It is always a pleasure to meet and chat with the owner .3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food at wineryVery good food served by equally nice people in a country setting on a site shared with their winery and tasting room. The staff was very attentive to special dietary needs....gluteb free items are marked on the menu. It ws too cold to eat outdoors but the patio looked very nice.

Wonderful setting, including ambience.
All good.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious mealThe food was amazing at Corks. We went for restaurant week and had the 3 course meal. The chef prepared our food perfectly. We were impressed. The atmosphere was nice. The seating is not too cramped. It was comfortable. Our waitress was also really good. We will definitely be returning to Corks! Great place for special occasions too.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTook advantage of restaurantTook advantage of restaurant week to try Corks. I've stopped in several times for wine tastings and was intrigued by the well-designed menu and ambiance. We weren't disappointed. While we did order off the prix fix menu, there was a great selection of delicious items.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood location, food, and service!Everything we requested was done! It was our grandson's 14th birthday celebration and they treated him like gold. Food was fresh and seasonal and the server knew the menu and what could be shared or not. The Bellini's were very good and our grandson's Roy Rodgers was perfect, per his comments. Overall service, table location, drinks, and food were good. We will return for an outdoor luncheon...under the redwoods.
Our grandson ordered the pesto chicken sandwich and I ordered their burger, whereas, my wife ordered the Caesar salad w/chicken. All were warm, well prepared, and good tasting. Our grandson's dessert wished him a Happy Birthday and he appreciated that.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Corks because itWe went to Corks because it was being featured for Sonoma County Restaurant Week and I am so glad we did. We will definitely be going back! The Duck Leg Confit fell off the bone and had amazing flavor. My boyfriend had the Filet Mignon and said it was one of the best steaks he's ever had. The Lemon Curd Tart was to die for! If they have it on their menu when you go, its definitely worth ordering one...or two ;-)3/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
