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 glamor of the dining room. 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.

Our dining experience at Cork Tree was absolutely fantastic. We were seated on time at a beautiful booth as requested. The service was perfect. The Server was experienced and well informed on the extensive wine list and dinner menu. The food presentation was as fantasric as the taste. Just a really great dining experience at a reasonable cost. We will be back for sure!

This is a place we look forward to dining in when in the desert. Food and service are generally excellent. This time we were disappointed in the Ceaser salad. Still will return another time.

I highly recommend this place for a nice date night. Food was delicious & service was amazing! Drinks needed a little more liquor in it, tasted like nothing. Overall, I would go again!

This restaurant was so delicious we went two nights in a row, and are planning a third during our two week stay in Palm Desert. The seared scallops with corn risotto is perfectly cooked. So too is the salmon w horseradish crust.

So too was the templeton rye old fashioned.

Everything about our dining experience was excellent.

Previous visits have been exceptional but this visit, the service was not good. Long wait between seating and drink order, even longer wait to order dinner, with a significant wait between courses. We’ll probably try it again but not real soon.
