Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food; service always great; ambience in the outdoor court, very nice; indoor ambience, excellent. Highly recommend it. Seafood dishes with pasta, a must to purchase."

  • "Took friends on a double date for dinner and was not disappointed. The food was good and the ambiance was great. We were in the dining room but the patio was filled with soccer fans watching the world cup. The ambiance on the patio was exciting. The food was hot and fresh. The portions were big so no worries about leaving hungry."

  • "I was very disappointed in the service that I received at Open Cork. The waitress was gone for long periods of time and the restaurant wasn't busy. We ordered an appetizer and it never showed up. The waitress said that she thought we wanted it with our mains (um, why would we?) and then brought it AFTER our mains. No thanks! I wouldn't rush back. The food was very bland especially the salmon and the other fish special. Don't order fish. I doubt I'd return."

  • "First well I made the reservations on line they could not find. so they put us in the bar and a lounge area while we were at a group with kids. Then they tried to rush us to order and then they ignored us after we placed our order. We have three different servers all of them tried but none of them were very effective. This is not a place you want to try on a busy day."

  • "We had a really nice dinner at Open Cork. My girlfriends found the wine list good and there was something for everyone on it. I don't drink so it didn't matter to me. I had a really nice salad with goat cheese (I think it was the house specialty) and Pollo Involtini which was very good. Portion sizes were generous, food nicely presented (chicken was a bit overcooked, but still good) and the potatoes & veggies that came with the meal were really tasty. Our waiter was attentive and quick. Overall, a good experience. "

  • "Loved everything about this restaurant. Then ambience--dim lights, intimate feeling. The food was amazing. Came here with a party of 8 everything that was ordered was cooked to perfection (lamb chops, steak, bouillabaisse, salmon and risotto). Best of all was the staff and service was amazing. They are very friendly, courteous and accommodating. Food came in a timely manner. Decent price for the quality of food you get. We went here on a Wednesday for my birthday and returned on Sunday for Mother's Day, we had to try other items from the menu."

  • "After reading the reviews, I wanted to love this place. But, our server was less than interested in checking in on us, and unfortunately, the food was not that great. It was likely an off day, but I would not go back."

  • "I enjoyed their food, but their wines by the glass can use a little more work. I ordered the eggplant and instead of mozzerella I got goat cheese. It was delicious, also my friend ordered a seafood salad which she enjoyed."

  • "We went there in mid February on a Thursday evening, so it wasn't very busy and we were seated quickly without a reservation confirmation. We were served rather quickly and enjoyed the food (good portions) and the beverages. The noise level was moderate with another group celebrating a birthday, but we could still have a hushed conversation at the table which was nice. I think that I would go back."

  • "I went there with my girlfriend for a ladies' night and it was perfect! The servers are not pushy at all but they kept follow up about your situation if you need anything. The Food was great and the atmosphere was so relaxing!"

  • "We have eaten at the Open Cork a few times......we are from Barrie ON and just selected the restaurant from the website the first visit.. The food, service and ambiance has resulted in many return visits."

  • "We had been to The Open Cork before for a casual drink. I chose this restaurant for my partner's 45th birthday because of a particular menu item, the seafood platter for two. It did not disappoint. The service was remarkable - attentive, but not cloying. During the course of our four-hour visit, the staff realized we were celebrating a birthday and organized the song, plus a treat for my partner. The evening went better than I expected at The Open Cork."

  • "An excellent deletion of plates sure to please many rates. An extensive specials menu with equally good variety. Good for groups and reservations are recommended."

  • "Once again we had a wonderful evening at the Open Cork. Every time we visit we notice more and more upgrades to the decor. The menu always offers something different, which is always good. We have taken many visitors from other countries to the Open Cork and it never disappoints."

  • "Made a reservation for 6pm for 3 of us the week before Christmas. Reservations a good idea-restaurant was pretty full when we left. Dinner was very good, service excellent, even with a few large groups in there. Have been there previously and would definitely go back."

  • "I made a last minute reservation thru Open Table. Did not know what to expect other then italian food. I sat on the lounge side. The service was good and fast. The food was the same even if the calamaries were over cooked. Portion are very generous almost too big if you get an appetizer first. Prices are fair. Over all a great experience. I will go back next time I am around."

  • "Hopes were high when walking in the front door. The place is very nicely appointed and was nicer than expected. A specials board with some delicious sounding options greeted us. The menu looked great and the wine list was also impressive. Without meaning too much offense, our waitress was not the "sharpest knife in the drawer". Nice enough, but not skilled at communicating or offering any help with the menu. Our food was okay. We all talked about it and all settled on anywhere from 5-6 out of a possible 10. I will try it again, but with a bit of trepidation."

  • "Food is good and consistent as always. All five adults were full and had doggy bag to take away. The server this time was better than last time. Efficient and warm service. We made reservation via Open table twice. The first time, the restaurant appeared to be not expecting us. They scrambled around to make a table for five after we had arrived. This time, we seated us at the corner and also just put the tables together. Hope it prepares better next time?"

  • "The title tells it all. We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent pasta dishes. We had two - both in the 12-15 dollar range, and both were superior in taste and quality (and probably calories). We found the restaurant table slightly claustrophobic, but we had good service top to bottom. We will return!"

  • "We found this restaurant via Open table given we have been living in Mississauga for almost 20 years. We drove by this location a few times but never tried. So, here we were on a Thanksgiving night where no one in the family wanted to cook. The restaurant is indeed quite big, large patio area, bar/lounge section and dining room. Chairs and tables were comfortable. There were only two wait staffs in the entire dining room area. They were very efficient, but not overtly friendly. They did their job and no complaint. The food was surprisingly good and the portion was very generous. We will return for causal family dining. The grilled calamari was well prepared!"

  • "I thought the restaurant was good but had some elements that were just disappointing. First of all our waiter was very bored. He looked like he really tried to be polite but looked like he did not want to be there. I ordered the Escargot and they were delicious. The Veal Marsala was very disappointing: the veal did not look appealing and - there was no taste. I added salt and pepper and nothing helped. The veal was not very tender and there was a lot of gristle. My two friends had the roasted veggie salad with goat cheese and found the dressing overpowering. I would recommend this restaurant but definitely try something else and stay away from the meat."

  • "We had a family of 7, everyone's meal came out at a different time. Mine came out last and I just had Veal parmigiana. By the time my meal came, everyone @ the table were pretty much done their meals. I ate a few bites and took the rest home, so that the remaining table did not have to wait for me to finish. We were here the year before, with a bigger party of guests and felt the service and food was much quicker. We will most likely go back again, since we did enjoy the food. Possibly they were short cooks in the kitchen or it was just bad timing."

  • "great ambiance in the dining and bar area with very spacious patio. there's also a lot of variety of food to choose from. food wise, portions and taste is also great. nice to find something like this in mississauga"

  • "Large patios are hard to find in Toronto - this one is a gem! Not only is the patio spacious, but it is sheltered from the street with a beautiful canopy and tons of flowering plants. Because the patio was so great, I didn't expect the food to be good - but was pleasantly surprised - we all loved our meals. This will be our new summer hangout spot."

  • "I loved the relaxed feeling of the place and the soft music in the background set the mood. The Calamari was done beautifully even thou I asked being my friend is lactose intolerant and the waitress was nice enough to make sure not cheese or milk was added to the Calamari which was really nice of her to let the chef know. My friend was really impressed and I am sure we will be back. Service was great and fast. Very friendly atmosphere. I loved the patio even thou we sat in the bar area. Next visit we will enjoy the patio."

  • "Had a great meal at open cork. Ended up opting to not get any appetizers and getting a pizza instead. A bit filling for an app for two people but it was great. Be sure to try the risotto!"

  • "We visited on Mother's Day (which is supposedly the busiest day of the year) so it's a little hard to write a fair review. After a minor scare with the reservation we were seated fairly promptly. Service was fairly friendly, though not outstanding. Things also took a while but I'm sure this was due to the fact that the restaurant was packed. The food was sort of hit and miss: the Mediterranean Salad was excellent and the Caesar was quite good for only $5.95. The pasta dishes seemed to be bigger hits than the meat (the prime rib was underdone and the duck over) but the flavours were all good. Also the prices were incredibly reasonable. I've been before and I'll be sure to give them another go when things aren't as crazy."

  • "We went to open cork for mother's day dinner. I made reservations for 6 people and we were seated right away. The dinner was tasty, the place was quiet busy and full. It's not a fancy restaurant and people don't get dressed up there but it's a very homey place and the owner is very pleasant. We went for dinner at 5 pm and when we got to dessert time they were out of chocolate cake. Overall, we had a good time and would come here again."

  • "Enhance wine selection by the glass - one or two is not enough. Provide a wine menu instead of having customer ask "what type" and "what brand" and "how much?" Isn't that common sense? Also have market prices ready each evening included with the menu for fish dishes. Again, I HATE asking how much but always do so."
