Perfect as always. My favorite in the desert!
I was very disappointed with the quality of the food this year. We had been here a year ago and was very impressed with the delicious food.
This year during thanksgiving week we came back and without exception the food was just not very flavorful. We were seated outside as expected but it was so dark, they had absolutely no lights out there. I know why. I thought the lettuce looked yellowed. After closer inspection it was apparent they were using old lettuce. We had sliders, the buns were actually soggy. They had 2 small sliders for $12. Every place else would give you at least 3. The only decent item was the cauliflower. Needless to say we aren’t returning.
Food is wonderful, service is great and with COVID they are very clean, tables well spaced and not over crowded.
We had some friends visiting for the weekend and took them to Cork & Fork.
This was our 4th time and they were very pleased with our choice for dinner.
We always look to try something different. Never disappointed.
Excellent presentation of perfectly prepared, delicious meals. The mussels were the best I have had. Terrific pizza. Great seafood. Everything very fresh. Excellent menu. Cannot wait to go back to try more items! Great ambiance as well.
Great outdoor dining, with heaters for the chilly desert nights. Food is always consistently excellent. Never disappoints.
Our second visit - food great again - we had lobster shooter, brussels spouts, ahi tacos, all of which were great. Our friends had one of the pizzas and the mussels and liked them a lot.
Delicious food. Friendly service. Outdoor seating is good. Brussels, cauliflour, grilled cheese, ahi tuna nachos and lobster blt
Outside, COVid precautions clearly taken by staff, excellent food, fun menu with lots of interesting choices. Thank you.
Our favorite place. Hands down. We asked for music to be turned off as it appeared to be playing through an iPad complete with commercials. We’re told that it could be off as long as no other tables were occupied. It’s was started again a bit later. Would suggest a blue tooth speaker and music with no commercials. Other than that- will continue to be our favorite go to in the area. Food always excellent and great staff
Food was great. Servers were great. A little hard to find but worth it. Order the bruschetta
The food never disappoints
The food was delicious (bruschetta, 2 orders of the Shrimp cakes, Salmon, Mussels) and the wine was okay. Service was good and outside seating was fine.
We had reservation for 4:30 but when we arrived, they told us patio opens at 5:00. They basically set up a table for us and then assigned a waitress. Was pretty bad that they took a reservation for a time slot that they didn’t actually have. However, food was great and servers were very friendly so overall a good experience.
Cork and Fork is an amazing restaurant with great ambiance, attentive and friendly service, and an outstanding food and wine menu. Highly RECOMMEND!
Lovely restaurant and great service. Especially enjoyed the mussels and Thai shrimp cakes.
Such a lovely restaurant and the food was SO good! Love the small plates, the wine - the lobster mango salad was delightful. We will be back!
Ate on outside side patio. Very nice. Food was excellent and our service was even better.
The food, ambience and service was amazing! My husband and I shared the Goat Cheese Bruschetta, Baby Spinach & Cranberries salad and the Pan Seared Wild Chinook Salmon. All were so delicious and great sizes for sharing. My children shared a pizza and they enjoyed it as well. We made reservations and requested outside seating which was well worth it! I highly recommend this restaurant and will visit again next time we're in town.
Great food and very good service. We are new to the area and we will be back.
A very fun happy hour menu. Bite sized portions so you try them all. The lobster shooters were out of this world. We’re already planning out next time back.
Thai shrimp balls are the best. Fried cauliflower- what a wonderful way to eat your vegetables. Tempura coating was so light you really didn't know it was there. Grilled shrimp on a skewer made of asparagus was a hit.
Thai shrimp balls were amazing, I could just lick the sauce off the plate. Goat cheese bruschetta had many complex flavors. Finger licking good. Pan seared salmon was perfectly cooked and we gobbled it up
Food was good, kind staff
Incredible food, attentive service, and we we're thrilled to be able to eat indoors! Highly recommend.
Having recently moved to the desert area, we finally found our way to the Cork and Fork, a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed! Our server Kaylee did a great job welcoming us and making recommendations. The happy hour menu provided a great start. Shareable small plates allowed us to get a taste of several things: Thai shrimp cakes, goat cheese bruschetta and dates were all fantastic! The featured Old Vines red blend wine was refreshing and smooth. We finished off the night by splitting the lobster mango salad, filet mignon street tacos and finally the Hawaiian bread pudding (don’t forget the ice cream... we did!) As we left, we saw another couple coming in who mentioned how much they loved this restaurant, only affirming what we already know. We’ll definitely be back!
We go to Cork & Fork every year when we come to Palm Springs from SF. Many times we frequent the restaurant more than once during our stay. Good is excellent, service is top notch! Even with Covid, it did not disappoint! See you next year!
Quiet anniversary dinner on outside patio. Mostly positive. The Only negative was a waitress in trading dropped one of the shrimp off the shrimp appetizers off the plate on to the table and said they would bring another but did not and my wife’s lobster shooter had way too much butter but still was bland tasting.
This is always a "go to" spot for us! We love the food and the wine list is good as well. Unassuming from the outside but interior is casual and pleasing. One of our favorites.
Service was fine but food was just okay. Pass on the adult grill cheese, not worth the calories.
Always great food and great service
The food was amazing and so was the service! Thank you
Very interesting and innovative small plates! Lobster shooters were decadent, brussels sprouts awesome, prosciutto-wrapped scallops delicious and ahi nachos fabulous. Wish we had more people to go with so we could taste more!
Probably our favorite restaurant. Love the small plates. Very creative menu.
Great place. Loved the cauliflower and the mushroom pizza. Our server was very nice and she was so proud of the owner of the restaurant.
Very good service and food! The music didn’t match the vibe however, and you could hear everyone’s conversations because it was a small space. Other than those small things, it was very nice night!
Great tapas, really fun atmosphere
Food was great, and we paired it with a nice pinot gris! Server was cheerful
and efficient. Go support this lovely local spot!
Great service and delicious food.
We had a small group visiting from out of town and was given a recommendation from an Uber driver to check this place out. Turned out amazing. We tried so many things from the menu. Some of the favorites were the seared ahi, the grown up grilled cheese, their mushroom pizza, and the bruschetta. For drinks we had red wine and a few people opted for their beer selections. They do not have a full bar, but do have some specialty drinks all made with soju, although we did not try any of those. Service was great, with just the right amount of attention, while letting us enjoy our meal and conversation. Turned out to be a great night out.
