This establishment has great food! The service was also pretty good. They aren’t able to split checks Which was a little inconvenient for us but with Venmo it was okay. The food was delicious! We all ordered the Brussels sprouts to start... they were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. So good I had to order another batch of them. Everyone who got the pizzas said they were incredible! This place is overall very good but not suitable for large groups as it is very small.

2nd time dining at this little gem in the desert. Tucked away in a small strip mall, it's very unassuming. Food and service are amazing. Check out their hand-crafted pizza's. I make my own dough but I have to admit, their chef has a secret ingredient in his that is so tasty! Next visit I will butter him up to see if I can pry it out of him! Haha...Small plates are to share and we love the Crispy Brussel Sprouts and the Ahi Tuna Poke Nachos....fabulous. My entree a special entree salad, Burrata Cheese and pickled peach over Arugula with a citrus dressing, divine. Highly recommend this spot for good food and excellent wines.

Food is delicious. Portions are small relative to the cost. The wine we ordered was too warm and I had to request ice to put in it.

Overall a great place. But I will have to reserve it for special occasions because it breaks the budget a Little..

We dine at Cork we have eaten there twice since the re-opening. As always, the food was excellent, with the exception of the Salmon Tacos (a new menu item) which we found to be a bit bland. But every other item we tried, including almost the entire small plate menu, was fantastic! I love the “adult” grilled cheese as well! We have really enjoyed the bread pudding in the past but this time it was a bit dry. We had one major service issue. My daughter wanted to try a flight of rose. They offer 3-glass flights in rose, white, red, etc. However, due probably to the recent re-opening, they only had two roses available, so my daughter asked if she could sub in a white. After checking with the bar, she was told NO. No flight for you! WHAT RESTAURANT DOES THAT??? The white and rose flights are THE SAME PRICE, and there weren’t three roses available! This threatened to ruin our evening but luckily the food was EXCELLENT as always, and service was otherwise acceptable.

Ordered two entries and they would not split the very large salad as our first course. They set on the table for us to do and it was very messy. Entries were just ok.

This was our favorite restaurant during our recent visit to La Quinta. They did an excellent job adhering to the new cleanliness standards (tables cleaned, throw away menus, etc). The food was delicious and our entire party loved all of the choices. The burrata, bruschetta with goat cheese, cauliflower and salads were all favorites. Service was also excellent. We will return.

The Cork and Fork just reopened after the pandemic and we went for dinner. They did an excellent job social distancing and keeping everything safe for guest. The food was OUTSTANDING. I have been there many times before, but I have to say, they were at their best. The lobster shooters are amazing, and I always love the goat cheese bruschetta. Thank you for re-opening in such a great fashion!

This was our restaurant after the lockdown and our first time here.

It was good see that the restaurant and staff were obeying all the restrictions of social distancing, cleaning, masks and gloves etc.

We started with crispy brussels sprouts and fried cauliflower, both of which were very good. I followed with the adult grilled cheese - grilled cheese with steak, which was very good. My wife had the bacon wrapped scallops. This dish was served in a bowl with a sauce . odd presentation. The scallops were overpowered by the bacon unfortunately.

The wine list was good.

Overall good value for money, but the scallops dish let down the visit.

Very enjoyable dinner. As usual, I might add. We’ve enjoyed every meal we’ve had here. The grilled wedge salad was fabulous, instead of tradition iceberg, it’s romaine with green Goddess dressing. It was superb

We were brutally disappointed. The lobster cups were served cold as was the Brussels sprout platter. Granted the restaurant replaced both dishes, but it ruined the evening. And, the after a second dish was served cold, the restaurant could have comped us for at least one of them. Mikes pizza and the brownie dessert were good, as usual.

This is a great casual eatery for happy hour or friendly meal with friends - good food and friendly service. The tapas style menu makes sharing lots of fun - variety is good. It is a small venue so noise level could be an issue however, it was fine when we were there. House wine is very palatable and servers are very willing to make recommendations on food offerings. Will definitely go back.....

Food was great. Overall a little high priced. For 4 of us at happy hour, just 3 drinking house wine plus apps was $180. We enjoyed the Thai shrimp, the lobster shooters best. The pizza was just ok. The weakest dish was lobster blt. Bread was soggy and bland. Sliders good. scallops good.

Food came out burnt and waitress was seeming put out because we had a balloon at the table causing her to move to the other side. She was short and curt, recommended the most expensive bottle of wine on the menu but upon tasting it was either corked or just plain horrible but she lacked the patience to allow for a proper tasting so we passed and opted for another one that appealed to us from the menu. The replacement pizza from the burnt one had a great deal less of toppings on it, shame on us for not being okay with paying for something charred. Otherwise the bar staff was great as was the other food but I would be reluctant to recommend or return. Two of us had birthdays at the table and I’m sure there are many other establishment that would have treated us better and had a higher standard for sending food out of the kitchen.

Grown up grilled cheese delicious. The brussel sprout dish was delicious. The poached pear salad was very good. Zucchini Bolognese was very good- but NOT vegetarian. Suggest that labels be very specific about ingredients, as it seemed that the pine nut gremolata was the meat substitute. Our waitress was wonderful.
