Great place, great food and great staff. A little too quiet for my liking.

Shrimp tacos, grown up grilled cheese, pizza and Brussel sprouts were delicious as usual. Did you change the bread pudding recipe? Not as good as we remembered.

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.

Ok, great for foodie flavors, great wine at competitive prices. We had the table by the door which they really ought to do something about isolating from the in/out at the door.
Distracted from the overall!!!

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.

Good selection of tapas, especially if you enjoy seafood and vegetarian options. The lobster shooters were fun and delicious and I really enjoyed the thai shrimp cakes, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower tapas dishes also! Excellent wine selection.

My husband & I split the Farmer's Market salad, the bacon wrapped scallops & the Margherita Pizza with Proscuitto. Everything was delicious and we had pizza to take home. This meant we were to full to try the desserts! Service was excellent.

We come to the desert about every third year and for the last three times it has been a must do to eat at Cork and Fork. Actually, on all our trips we eat there twice. We can't say enough about the quality and taste of the food. It is not your run of the mill menu or exceedingly designery fare. Shrimp cakes, filet tacos, brussel sprouts and cauliflower dishes are must haves in my book. Don't miss this place. It won't cost you a fortune either and by the way it is a wine bar so the wine choices are great too.

I love restaurants that serve small plates....it’s great to be able to try lots of different selections. My husband and I went for our Valentines Day Anniversary and shared some wine and lots of fabulous food. The Bruschetta was better than any I’ve had elsewhere. Loaded with goat cheese it was rich and creamy. We also had a hearty cheese plate, and the adult grilled cheese with the most tender brisket. That was a real treat. But the most decadent thing I ordered was the Lobster Shooter. A tall shot glass filled with clarified butter and lobster. No, you don’t drink it, but I savored each spoonful. We forgot we’d ordered one of the pizzas and being so full, we got it to go. Highly recommend Cork & Fork. The prices are very reasonable and we enjoyed our special dinner. We will definitely be back. We have gone to their wine dinners before, and I’d gone to a couple of their really great cooking classes but this was our first time in the restaurant. Make a reservation because it’s not a big venue and it’s always busy....now I know why.

Inventive, delicious small to medium plates made for sharing. Our party of 4 each chose 1-2 plates so we ended up with 5 plates to share, which was perfect! Especially loved the Thai shrimp cakes and Brussels sprouts. The Happy Hour wine by the glass was excellent—-terrific Chardonnay and Cabernet, and well-priced. We had to try a dessert, the brownie a la mode, which we all loved. Service was great, personable and yet efficient. They know what they are doing here!

We asked for a taste of the featured wine, but was turned down, the waitress said that they couldn’t open a bottle for a glass taste (??). We asked to share the butterscotch pot de creme, but was told they were out of this..at 6:00pm?
