Great, as always. The only issue that I had is the Grownup Grilled Cheese was not up to it’s usual standard. Very little short rib meat.

We have been coming to Cork & Fork for over 2 years and have always had fabulous food, but tonight was somewhat disappointing. We had the Thai Shrimp Cakes that we’ve ordered many times before & these were very mediocre, not fabulous as they’ve been before. I had the filet mignon tacos & they were outstanding as usual & the others had shrimp & grits which were good & scallops which they said were good, not great. My husband had pizza which he liked very well. The most disturbing thing was when I ordered the Butterscotch Pot Du Creme (which I had been raving about to our friends who had never been here before), the server said that people had been complaining during the last few days that this dessert didn’t taste right & that was because it had been burnt! I don’t know how long it takes to make this, but it seems that this could have been rectified by making a new batch when this was discovered! Rather disappointing...

The highlight of Cork & Fork is the food. Their dishes are always topnotch in creativity and flavor. It is the ambience that needs work. Tables are very small (probably to accommodate more guests as the room is quite small). Dishes are small. My guest ordered a sandwich which was served on a saucer with the sandwich overhanging the sides.

We love the restaurant, but wish they would pay a bit more attention to the "dining experience" which is important to us.

We came into Palm Desert a couple days ago I looked up the reviews on yelp and thought this might be a good place to try out. It definitely met our expectations and exceeded them. The environment, food, and food server we’re awesome!

This has been my go to place since I discovered it a while back. This time I dined alone and sat at the bar. Made friends with people on both sides of me. Courtney the bartender made me feel very welcomed. The food is always tasty and I like that there is always a new wine to try

Very disappointed in the lobster shooters. Used to be a highlight this time just a very small bit of lobster crumbs and way too much butter. My wife got sick when we got home. Rest of menu needs to be updated. This used to be one of our favourite spots in the desert but needs a reboot.

Food was great, but because our reservation was at 5:00 pm I assumed all wine was half price, not $16.00 a glass!
Your staff is outstanding and your menu selection is awesome. Hope to see you soon.

It is Easter weekend, so the restaurant was extremely busy. That said the food was excellent and the service was too. My husband and I like to sit at the bar, the bartender is excellent!

We had a terrific waitress. We have food allergies and our waitress made sure our meals were safe for us. And the food was terrific. We started out with the lobster shooters and broccoli and they were terrific. We had the filet mignon tacos, shrimp and grits and the scallops and polenta and they were wonderful too. We ended our dinner with a selection of desserts and all of them were delicious. We want to come back here ASAP. Highly recommend Cork and Fork!

Although this tapas style restaurant is very popular at the moment, it was lacking in several ways. Most of the dishes we tried were very tasty. The place is overcrowded and has uncomfortable seating. The “vibe” is a frantic and rushed staff. There is only one toilet for the entire place fashioned behind what looks like a shower stall facade next to the kitchen entrance. Neat to try. Can’t say we’d be running back when there are so many fabulous places to try in the valley.

We took our good friends to our new favorite eatery, and like us they enjoyed everything about this place. I find the only downside to eating here is that is not cool to lick your plate in public. We will be back.
