This was our 2nd time at Cork and Fork having eaten here the last time we traveled here about 5 years ago. Many times when it's been a few years when you return to a restaurant you loved it hasn't sustained the quality remembered but that is not the truth with Cork and Fork. Our food was amazing and the service impeccable. There is a lovely wine list and the restaurant is small and intimate. We were delighted to find that a favorite we remembered is just as wonderful and consistent as it was a few years ago.

Service was excellent. We were attended to without hovering. We ordered a variety of food items and all were delicious. And the flight of red wine was a great suggestion by our server.

We had an amazing dinner earlier this week. The food was fantastic and the service excellent. The new fall menu is superb. We enjoyed a couple of Happy Hour dishes, and also several dishes from the regular menu. It was great to be able to select from both.

We always go to this place when in the desert. We love everything, especially the lobster shooters! OMG! But everything here is so good. The pizza, the tacos, the deserts! Go give it a try, we'll be back next year.

This is a go-to place for my husband and me. Great small plates. The bruschetta can't be beat. Another favorite is the tequila lime shrimp tacos. Nice wine selection. The only downside is the noise level. Weather permitting there is outdoor seating on Fridays and Saturdays where noise is not an issue. Also there is an uncomfortable glare from the overhead LED lighting above the tables near the kitchen. All in all, love this place and enjoy introducing it to friends.

We'd been to Cork and Fork on a prior visit, so we decided to go there to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered 4 dishes; lobster shooters that were OK; mussels that were stale, smelly and chewy; dry and tasteless; a carrot salad comprised of tasteless stale carrots and dismal dressing and a cheese and short-rib sandwich that had an OK filling between two slices of tasteless, mushy white bread. The cava was fine and the service was mediocre. We won't be going back.

Food and wine were delicious but it’s small plates. Location is a bit strange and the restaurant is small so we felt like we were sitting very close to other patrons!

Our server was polite and efficient. The delivery or food was timely. We have never had bad service and our varied choices of food always delicious and last nights meal was no exception. When vacationing in the desert Cork and Fork is always on the list.

Great food. Small plates to share. Best vegetables I've had in a long time. Really good street tacos. Had both steak and shrimp, but the shrimp won by a margin. Both were awesome.

A couple of weeks ago we were at Cork & Fork for a meal, and unfortunately we had a dish that was subpar. We went back again this week, and had a fabulous meal. We had family and friends from snowbird country and they enjoyed the meal and drinks as well. The service was also excellent. So we will be back again very soon for another great C & F experience.

Great artisanal cheeses, fabulous—and unusual!—Brussels sprouts. Terrific scallops with polenta, and amazing pizza! All-around delicious and original. Would highly recommend.

This was our second visit to Cork and Fork while in LaQuinta for a few days. Absolutely fantastic experiences both times. Food was full of flavor, and the plate presentation was superb. So happy we found this restaurant. We will be back for sure! Can’t wait to come back and sign up for one of their cooking events.

Very friendly efficient service and we enjoyed our evening. An interesting take on tapas and having eaten plenty of tapas in Spain and back home in the UK, certainly not traditional Spanish tapas dishes that I'm used to. The food was pleasant though and a change from the norm in the desert.

Was looking for something new in our neighborhood and found this gem, Cork & Fork. Not a big place but has a very unique and interesting menu. Some items I never even heard of before. Very creative. The food items were all good but we espcially liked the Lobster Shooters, the Thai Crab Cakes and the Pizzas. We look forward to visiting there again very soon.

It is a small plates restaurant (tapas). If you have never been there the wonderful staff is very helpful. They change their menu with the seasons, but old favorites remain.

It's so much fun to share all the plates with friends. We order til we are FULL!

We had a good time with the appetizers. We had the lobster (loaded with butter sauce), the Thai shrimp cakes (just ok - kinda bland)< the Brussels sprouts (fantastic) and mike’s pizza. Service was very attentive and prices reasonable.

We love Cork & Fork, but last night the taco's were over cooked and dry. Very disappointing, but admittedly, very unusual for C & F. We will be back again soon, and no doubt we will once again try the taco's. I should add that the server pulled one of the taco orders from the bill. Very kind, and one of the reasons we love C & F! They stand behind their food.
