Love this place. The menu is creative and food is always exceptional. It is a vibrant atmosphere and casual so you can enjoy your evening. Their wine list is excellent as it is smaller vineyards.

Excellent service. Scallops, although only 2, were huge, tasty and prepared beautifully. One guest in party had pizza and it was tasty, but lacked a lot of toppings if that's what you'd prefer. The third guest had sliders which were excellent and larger than others I'd seen. Round that off with the last in our party with Grown up sandwich with short ribs, was also a hit.

My girlfriend really wanted to try this establishment. She looked forward to it all week and is very in tune with good restaurants and cork and fork has a really great reputation. We were greeted by a very friendly and lovely hostess. We wished she was our waitress because of how friendly and outgoing she was. Our server was dry and her service was mediocre at best. Im assuming she is used to a much older crowd as the clientele. She wasn't outgoing and smiled maybe once. It was close to the end of the night so there was a lot of cleaning going on which was very distracting. We went for the ambiance we were sure the food was going to be good. The food was excellent which is why we didn't feel the need to speak our opinions in person. The selection of wine was also great. There isn't any places in the valley like this restaurant which is why we had such high hopes for it. We aren't sure if well go back or not. Maybe it was just our timing.

Two in my group each returned their soup special citing “no flavor”. First experience of a dish that didn’t meet Fork’s usual consistency. Wine-by-the-glass selection was a surprise hit. Will order a bottle next time. Can’t recall the name but it was a lightly oaked Chardonnay. Ask for a taster sample.

We had a great time on New Years Eve. We love the food, specially the lobster shooters. It’s fun that everybody can pick their favorite dish and then share.

Interesting place. It is a small plate venue with really interesting and unique choices. Their pizzas are excellent. We had four dishes all were good and shareable. Items range fro 11-14 dollars. The dining area is small so make a reservation

We had an early reservation (5 pm) due to our 10 month grandson. My daughter is Gluten free so we were taking a chance. The staff were wonderful, the kitchen accommodated gf beautifully and the entire dinner experience of small shared plates ( our favorite type of dining) was wonderful. Ur Grandson turns out has a pretty sophisticated palette and loved the filet mignon tacos!

excellent food and wine - they could benefit from some sound proofing panels installed on the ceiling - it was way too loud with the close seating and hard to block out the conversations on both sides of our table. I wouldn't go again on an anniversary but definitely for any other time.

This restaurant was highly recommended and got good reviews. The first two plates were very good. We had soup of the day but had to send it back to heat up. Then we had goat cheese bruschetta and loved it. The scallops were good but polenta was mushy and ruined the dish. We will go back and try other items. Had a great glass of Pinot Noir.

We had eaten a very nice meal there about a year ago and were disappointed this time. The deviled eggs were not "deviled" rather icy cold congealed hard boiled eggs topped with a jalapeno sauce, very disappointing, the shrimp and grits were more chorizo than shrimp and grits, service was subpar, but what killed it was a $25.00 corkage fee per bottle!

They ran out of lobster shooters (and we were there at 6:45) and then they ran out of pizza. When pizza is a good third of your menu, you shouldn't run out of it.

Cork and Fork is a great spot for anyone but especially if you live in the neighbourhood. There is a great selection of interesting tapas, portions are reasonable and the price is right. Easy to go back to again and again.
The service is also good.
