    I had a great time. It was loud enough to not hear other’s conversations and quiet enough not to have to yell. Great food.

    We were seated upstairs with only a few other tables. The ceiling was extremely low. Cocktails were over priced and awful. Never finished them. Started with bread and gnocchi. Both were dry and didn’t have much flavor. Ordered a steak medium rare. It was completely charred on the outside and raw on the inside. Mac n Cheese was not warm, very bland. Unfortunately we will not be returning or recommend this restaurnt.

    We LOVE Cork & Cow, and as always, our service and table request was impeccable. But, we found the steaks to be not as good as they usually are. I would still highly recommend them for the best place to get a steak.

    Cork and cow never disappoints us! Always great service, perfection every time! I had the SCALLOP & SHRIMP GNOCCHI. Black Truffle, Roasted Broccolini, Malted Cream, Crispy Potatoes, and Shaved Button Mushrooms. Best seafood dish I’ve had in a very long time. My husband usually gets the Prime New York Steak but wanted to try something different. He chose the IBERICO PORK SECRETO. Manchego Risotto, Bacon-Apple Salad, with a Sherry Gastrique. It was delicious as well!

    We had a great experience both from a service perspective as well as food quality. The truffle butter for the steak is a must and the appetizers were all great - the desserts were a tad underwhelming but that didn’t take away from the overall experience. Exceptional service and overall!

    Carrie was a great waitress. Attentive, gave great feedback, and enjoyed our being there. Only feedback is the Gorgonzola horseradish steak accompaniment lacked the horseradish punch I expected. Never the less, the creamy Gorgonzola and salty brine made the NY strip even more special. Highly underrated ice cream flavor- cream cheese. It was a great match for the pear crisp. Can’t wait to come back and try more!

    Thought it would be much better based on reviews. Disappointed to be served over-cooked filets with too much seasoning. Saw bartender drop ice into bourbon glass with bare hands - yuk. Nice atmosphere is about the only positive.

    Excellent food. We had the lamb appetizer and that is a can’t miss option as well as the lobster soup. Can’t go wrong with any entree choice. Highly recommend checking out the sides as well. Higher priced meal but worth it for a date night or other special occasion
