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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Loved the sprinklers in the patio. It was much more humid near the glass & Rick wall the table was next to. Perhaps move those tables away from “ building picket or add fans to blow a breeze in that area, we traded once both if is began to “ glow heavily “ lol otherwise a lovely meal great TGIF and service !
