    Service was excellent and the charred oysters were delicious. The filet, shrimp and gnocchi, mac and cheese - way too salty! The filet was plated with 2 small red potatoes that looked a bit like meatballs. The carrot cake was average but the sour cream ice cream was excellent. The wine list is very good and we enjoyed the Brut Rose and the Pinot Noir.

    Love the ambiance, sat upstairs… watch your head! … but great fun. Food was delicious. Bone in rib-eye was perfect. Halibut was delicious. Oysters for our appetizer, highly recommend with the bread. Favorite cocktail is the Naughty List. Always amazing wait staff. Shout it to Pete the restaurant manager and John the best bartender!

    Good service and restaurant ambiance. Unfortunately the steak was unevenly cooked and very tough, and overall the food lacked flavor. The streak was so tough and inedible I had to spit some of it into my napkin. Cool restaurant vibe but can’t recommend due to the poor food experience. Not worth it at all.

    Been here about ten times tonight I think they didn’t have enough servers. Food came out very cold, was going to send back but we’re sitting up stairs so didn’t see our server for a long while.got drinks at the end of meal when ordered before salads came out. First negative experience to a usually amazing meal

    Steak was toughest I’ve had in a while. Steak and all sides were overloaded with butter. That was really the only flavor present and not really necessary. Definitely underwhelmed by our meal. We have gone many time previously and it was a different experience. Seems like the restaurant is struggling to plate and present a quality steak dinner now. Also, the music was really loud which didn’t really go wit my the ambiance. Just a strange experience overall for the type of restaurant it is known to be.

    We had a table for 6 at the front of the restaurant (next to street)... Waiter was fabulous - he read my mind on how I wanted my burger prepared and it came out perfectly. There is something for every taste.....Very nice casual upscale dining experience in Franklin! We would definitely eat here again.

    We have been waiting to go here for quite some time. My husband had lamb which was amazing. I had the gnocchi which was good but overpriced for what I received of four shrimp and two scallops lots of gnocchi and barely any sauce. The tartare was unique and flavorful but overpriced for the size. Drinks were good again cocktail was gone in five sips and was $14. The restaurant is small and loud. Bathrooms shared with a hallway or other restaurant. I believe if they reviewed some pricing and moved to a bigger location this would be on point. A good experience but a little short of our expectations.

    Barry was our server and he was such a professional and made our experience so delightful. He was attentive without hovering, he had great menu insight and was so poised and polished in an unpretentious way. Cork & Cow’s menu is delicious, original and very intentional. Cork & Cow’s ambiance is cozy with a great buzz. We are so thankful to live so closely and will come back often!

    We arrived early for dinner and choose to go to the bar for drinks. The bar was full but the hostess made a place for us at a small table next to the bar to wait and enjoy our drinks before our dinner reservations. We were greeted with a huge smile from Andrian who took very good care of us before going to dinner. The place is awesome with old ecliptic decor. The servers were friendly making us feel welcomed all evening and the food was very very good. We choose steak filets and house roasted potatoes which were cooked perfect for us. We loved the experience and plan to come back and bring friends next time. It was a perfect place to enjoy our 40th anniversary dinner! Thanks Cork and Cow for a great experience!!!!!

    The restaurant was too loud for our taste. And you don’t need to worry about dressing up. It’s casual enough that a TV is playing at the bar/entrance to the restaurant. The food was all good.

    Service was outstanding! Cocktails were great. Our starter - charbroiled oysters - were wonderful. We had mixed thoughts on the main course. My husband had the leg of lamb and it was good. I had the seafood selection of the day, which was halibut. It was a very tiny piece of fish and it was dry and overcooked. I was disappointed and would not order fish again there. It is definitely a steakhouse, so not a good choice of restaurant for people like me who do not eat beef.

    Highly recommend. Great food, ambiance and Barry was a great, attentive and personable server. But he listened to my daughter instead of me when I asked for well Vodka and she said Tito's. Charged $3 up charge for call brand. Gave free dessert for birthday in the party With drinks, dessert, wine it's a $$$$. Great for special occasion.
