    We were greeted early and welcomed in by Eric and enjoyed a wonderful deep flavored bourbon. Great conversation! Table service by Aaron was impeccable! Great knowledge of the menu and attention to detail. The beef and lamb are superstars. I suggest asking the chef to slice the lamb for you prior to plating. Extensive wine menu and the best carrot cake I’ve had in years. Make your reservation as fast as you can!!!

    We tried Cork & Cow for the first time for my husband’s birthday, after getting a high recommendation from a friend. We sat upstairs which is a cute little area with 4 tables and some railing, giving a view to the first floor. I’m not sure why our experience was so different than our friends’. First our reservation was for 5:15. Admittedly we arrived a few minutes late at 5:20 but were seated promptly. After perusing the drink menu for about 5 minutes we ordered 2 glasses of Pinot Noir. About 5 minutes later we ordered a wedge salad to share & we each ordered a filet cooked medium. We also ordered creamed spinach & asparagus. We started to order garlic mashed potatoes but the server informed us the steaks did come with roasted potatoes, which the menu didn’t indicate. Our glasses of wine did not come until 5:50! There was no explanation or apology from our server. The wine was good. We asked for bread, which took another 20 minutes & was extra. Our salad came at approximately 6:05 & we were pleased they had divided it nicely for us so we didn’t have to do it. It was so salty we could barely eat it. It was on the small side, nowhere near large enough to take 45 minutes to prepare. We’re not sure if it was the bacon or the deviled egg that made it so salty. The bleu cheese dressing was good, and the lettuce and tomatoes were fresh. The rest of our food came at approximately 6:25. The steaks were cooked perfectly and had a dollop of light lemon butter on top, which was delicious. The asparagus was also very good. The 2 small roasted potatoes had a vinegar & herb on them. They were below avg. The creamed spinach came w/ a fried egg on top, which didn’t add much. The spinach itself was good. It was more like sautéed spinach leaves, stems and all, put into a thin, very light cream sauce. Still it was quite good. We did not order dessert. Our bill came to $222.58 with tip. Overall maybe 3 1/2 stars but that wasn’t an option. We’ll stick with our favorite, Red Pony.

    Great service (Barry), and the recommended Carrots, Carrot Cake and Cheesecake...were memorable! We always feel well-taken care there- Jason McConnell deserves accolades for CnC, as well as Red Pony! Martinis were well-shaken (ice cold) and the wine list is solid. Oh, my wife loved the Wedge salad, served with excellent deviled eggs. It's a 5 out of 5 experience, and well worth visiting!
