  • Good for special occasions
  • Neighborhood gem
  • Great for fine wines
Cork Tree Restaurant is built around California products. Local ingredients are used whenever possible and wines of the West Coast, particularly California, are featured.

The wine list is always a work in progress, with a balance of well known wineries, as well as boutique wineries.

Cork Tree enhabits a style rich in California elegance. Large and round booths privately encased in wood and fabric provide intimate spaces for conversation and romance, while providing views of the understated glamour of the dining room. Beautiful Palm Trees and a natural cascading fountain make the Cork Tree Patio wind-protected and well-appointed for dining under the stars. Additionally, depending on the size of your celebration, two private dining options await.

    We are new part time residents, first visit to Cork Tree. Celebrated our son and daughter in law’s Anniversary. We definitely picked the best place to celebrate! We will return many times for quiet little dinners or wine and appetizers at the bar.

    Fine dining, beautifully done. The meals were tasty and attractively presented. Welcome and service was friendly. We enjoyed the evening. The only aspect that could be improved is the pacing; we were at table for more than 2 hours with just three courses, a little long.

    Cosmo was absolutely delicious. Beet salad was good, though my husbands regular size wasn’t much or any bigger than my mini. Two of us had salmon - presentation was different, which was odd. Monica was great.

    Our group of six had a wonderful evening of fine food and conversation. The filet was tender and perfectly cooked. Salmon and sea bass dishes were delicious, including special touches of the chef. Loved the smaller sizes offered for the salads. Extensive wine list. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

    Excellent food. Calm and relaxing ambience. Very knowledgeable and attentive server. Overall a nice enjoyable dining experience. My only negative comment would be regarding the serving of two very tiny and skimpy pieces of bread. Maybe the server could offer additional pieces before leaving the table or at least returning to the table to offer more as we both would have liked more pieces of bread to eat when our salads arrived.
