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.
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 was our third time eating there. the menu always has something new but keeps a lot of the tried and true favorites. wine selection is always interesting but good.
we will be back.
We were crazy and wanted to get out during quarantine and picked one of the hottest day to do it but cork and fork had an excellent wine selection and the food was good as well.
Menu with really interesting combinations
Server knowledgeable about ingredients and “adult beverages”
Forced to be on patio due to Covid 19 and heat plus flies made it uncomfortable but not in restaurant’s control
Will RE-Visit when inside dinning is allowed
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.
A usual, the service was amazing. Food really good.
We love Cork & Fork, Heirloom, and Tu Madres!
Great food, great wine offerings!
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..
Great variety of small plates for sharing. Especially like their version of crispy cauliflower
First dinner out since February!! Was perfect.
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.
Great service, highly recommend the lobster shooters! Poke nachos were super yum!
Great food and prices.
Delicious small plates
Wow...wow...wow....Our server Kalie (sp) was AMAZING! We were there celebrating our 13 year wedding anniversary and every bite was delectable. We will definitely be returning! Completely recommend!
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.
Great first dinner after restaurants were allowed to reopen. Restaurant did a great job spacing tables
Our server was friendly and very attentive. Food and wine was excellent!
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!
The food was so delicious
Very clean and safe!
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.
Great place, great food and great staff. A little too quiet for my liking.
We loved our dinner and the service. We love the casual ambience and the selection of food is great for our whole family. Thank you.
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.
70th Bday. Presented a complimentary birthday Gelato which was nice
