Cork & Cow Ratings and Reviews
Came here for our anniversary after a friend highly recommended it and we were not disappointed. Filet and bone-in ribeye were a perfect medium rare and seasoned to perfection. They cook their steaks over a wood-fire grill, but the meat was not over smoked tasting. We shared the brussels sprouts as a side, and they were crisp and delicious over what I believe to be a sweet potato/butternut squash puree. Whatever it was it was delicious. It was a 5-star steakhouse that brought way more to the table than just your typical expensive steak insert standard side dish here. Wish we could have saved room for dessert. We will definitely return.
We had a wonderful evening in Downtown Franklin capped off by a dinner date at Cork & Cow. The service was outstanding, drinks incredible, & food was delicious. We will definitely be back. I would highly recommend C&C to anyone looking for a lovely dinner or great hand crafted cocktail.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Cork & Cow but with a few comments. The food was OUTSTANDING and worth the price. The atmosphere was quite loud. For the prices on the menu, I would expect that the interior be designed to make it a bit easier to converse with the other person at a two person table. The service was very good, but a bit too much on the upsell. Everyone was VERY polite and made the evening very nice.
Hands down the best dining experience we've ever had. We went for our 15 year anniversary after all the great reviews we read and heard. Everything was perfect. From the polite and courteous hostess calling for a friendly reminder about our reservation to the friendly and knowledgeable server to the absolutely AMAZING food prepared by talented chefs, I cannot recommend Cork & Cow enough. It is well worth the price as the fine dining experience is top notch. We started off with the zucchini fries, which were wonderful...especially paired with the two dipping sauces they came with. My wife ordered the pear salad, which sounds simple, but the combination of flavors meld together perfectly and were very fresh. I ordered the lamb rack (medium rare) and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned to perfection...the potatoes that accompanied it were some of the best I've ever had. My wife ordered the shrimp, scallops, gnocchi and was blown away by how great everything tasted...some of the best food she's ever had (and she can be picky and particular when it comes to dining). The atmosphere is more casual and comfortable than we originally thought it would be and were glad it was as it made the experience very enjoyable. Unfortunately, we didn't have room for dessert. My wife enjoyed some tasty wines and I a couple locally crafted beers. The evening went perfectly! And although we won't eat every weekend, we'll definitely be back...it won't be soon enough. Thank you Cork & Cow for an exceptional dining experience!!
Total foodgasm!! Wonderful restaurant, excellent service, incredible food!! You cannot find a better steak in a 50 mile radius. The sides are wonderful. I suggest the filet a la Oscar and a side of spinach with fresh parmesan. All the desserts are decadent and perfect with their French pressed coffee to end your fabulous meal.
This was my second time to dine at Cork & Cow and I will be back again and again. Excellent service, knowledgeable staff, and outstanding food. This is my place for special occasions or a celebration meal with my wife. I am a self admitted steak snob. There are very few restaurants where I will order and actually enjoy a steak. Cork & Cow is one of the few places that I look forward to ordering a steak. Get a steak with the coffee rub and chilie butter. You will thank me later.
As always, Alan, JJ and Peter excel at great service, backed up by terrific food. Zack is an expert at the bar - he knows the story / history behind every glass - tasty bourbon here too! Have the lamb chops followed by the filet - or two! Special Elvis tribute dessert was 'the King'!
I can't believe it took us so long to finally try Cork & Cow for dinner...we have been missing out! We indulged ourselves with the Tomahawk steak and we're beyond thrilled. It was absolute magic. And, if that weren't enough, were intrigued by the Elvis peanut butter and banana tart, but went with the chocolate cheesecake. It was the best I've ever had. I have always found their brunch to be amazing but it pales compared to the feast we had for dinner. We will be back!
