Service was fine but food was just okay. Pass on the adult grill cheese, not worth the calories.

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!

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!

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 !

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.
