A word from Kork Wine and Cheese Bar
Reminiscent of a 1920's speakeasy with hardwood floors, over-sized leather couches and iron chandeliers, Kork Wine & Cheese has joined the burgeoning Downtown Miami restaurant and nightlife scene. Kork is a dual-level wine bar, cheese and charcuterie shop, and underground cellar. Patrons can select from hundreds of bottles of wine and a plethora of fine cheeses and meats. Kork's hidden gem is its underground wine cellar, a former bomb shelter from the Cuban Missile Crisis era. Come discover a live jazz show on Friday or Saturday and one of Miami's hippest hideaways.

Kork Wine and Cheese Bar reviews from OpenTable diners
  • No Service = losing clients
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 3/8/2013
    Not much to write due to the fact that we left after 30 min. The wait staff never took our drink orders and after 30 min they advised us that the kitchen was backed up and it would take 1 hour to receive any food.

    Happened upon Kork after seeing it on Open Table - we were in the mood for wine, cheese and this place was the perfect spot. Although they were out of Pinot Noir (how is that possible at a wine bar??) and the olive tapenade we ordered with our cheese platter, the Syrah and olive assortment they replaced them with were both very good. The cheeses were excellent with delicious baguette rounds - a balsamic glaze and delightful spice mustard were also included on the platter. They were beginning to set up for live music when we decided to go but we will return next time we're in Miami to check that out.

    I will never try to go to this restaurant again. In the first place, they are so important or busy that they do not have a human answer the telephone. We were having trouble finding the restaurant. We called for assistance twice. Each time the phone is answered by a talking puppet who makes her speech and then hangs up. If that's their idea of customer relations at its best, they can do without my business or any good words to others about possibly going there.Bert Haber

    Although the place is really nice and the cheese and wine are great, the service is absolutely awful. They are nice people but extremely slow, forget to bring out orders and constantly have to be asked/reminded.

    The first time here was amazing! Tibor was our host and our food and wine guide. We let him do the picking and he came through with brilliant choices. I highly recommend. Entertainment was excellent as well.

    Not a full menu...not for everyone.... certainly not those seeking a big dinner. But if you need a place to hear live music while being able to taste the most fabulous smoked salmon and the best cheese fondue....this is your place!!!

    On a date a recommend sitting downstairs for easy listening live music and a great atmosphere for conversation. Our waiter was very attentive and the jazz band was very interactive.

    Though the place is hard to find, it does provide more seclusion. There's a good variety of cheese and wines to choose from. The chocolate fruit fondue was great. It's a good place to sit back, relax with a glass of wine and chat with friends.

    KWCB was excellent. The ambiance downstairs perfect for a romantic date or a group of friends who enjoy great cheese and a decent wine selection. Stock was low or non-existent for a few cheeses but suggestions were made to solve the problem. Service grows slow as more guests arrive- only 1-2 servers for the entire downstairs. Overall a great experience. Recommended.

    This was our anniversary dinner. Though my request to be seated downstairs was denied due to a large group reservation. The manager apologized and offered to buy us a bottle of wine which he proceded to forget due to the large group reservation. I can see myself coming back to the Cellar with a group of friends. I know the manager will be attentive. As for the main dining area, the mature waiter that was handling the quiet (2-3 tables at the time we arrived) seemed overwhelmed at handling anything more than 3 tables and spent his time talking to patrons who appeared to know him. He held no service skills and from our view intentionally ignored us until we finally got up and stepped the 10 ft to the bar to request the bill.

    Great gem in downtown Miami. Two floors with wine celler in bottom and there is a Jazz Bank Fridays & Saturdays. Service was excellent and there was a very good selection of wines which you can go and pick out yourself. For food there is a variety of different cheeses, cold cuts, olives, etc that you can much on while relaxing in the romantic ambiance. They have Happy Hour on weekdays from 4 to 7 pm. The staff was friendly and excellent. I will definitely return!!
