The Cork and Fin restaurant is primarily a seafood restaurant, priding itself in serving flavorsome seafood dishes. The restaurant has a stylish ambience, the modern interiors comprising of hardwood floors, brick walls, framed mirrors, pendant lamps and high ceiling. The seating arrangements in Cork and Fin are comfortable and the space generous, providing patrons with fine-dining experience. The service is good, the servers amicable and welcoming.
From Cork and Fin's menu, the Dungeness crab, mashed potatoes, winter prixe fixe menu, seared scallop, roasted arctic char, seafood gratin, crab croquette, braised short ribs and clam chowder are among the popular items. For dessert, the chocolate cheesecake mousse with blueberry compote comes well-recommended from customers. The Cork and Fin Restaurant is now closed.
We went to try the seafood tower (at almost half price) and the quality continues to be fabulous and the service is excellent.
Had a great evening.
Suggestions by our server were outstanding.
Loved it all!
We keep coming back for the happy hour. Service is attentive. Oysters are delish.
My friends and I were quite impressed with the food, but not so much with the service. I wonder if they were short-staffed that night so it took the server forever to tend to us. Some other customers actually left as no one was tending them. I tried to get one of the server's attention by saying hi to him as he walked by—he looked at me briefly but left me without even acknowledging me. We almost walked out of the doors right then but our server came just in time. When we were done with the food, the server came to pick up the plates but spilled some sauce onto my friend's phone but wasn't even aware that she did that. It's really too bad as we enjoyed the food immensely and loved the décor but I am not sure if we want to go back. The servers just don't look happy working there.
Went here for a birthday gathering this past weekend. It was more than fantastic. Will be back again and again.
We went for the oysters at happy hour. the waitor said he couldn't offer any to us, but there would be a dozen available on their platter which was available for $49. wtf ? Happy hour was clearly advertised on their website, and they had oysters in the house but couldn't/wouldn't explain why they werent available and offered no subsitution....other than the platter? The platter was marked down from $89. So stupidly we said OK, lets have the platter. We were hungry and already there. It sounded OK, and should have been OK.... but between us we had 4 off tasting oysters, as in manky. The lobster tasted old. Nothing seemed fresh. It appeared to be a plate of leftovers.
Staffs are extremely nice and professional. Food was excellent and the location is great (you may have dinner here after shopping and sightseeing at Gastown).
MY FAVORITE IS KANTO LOBSTER, ITS THE BEST ON THE MENU!!!
This is our second visit in 2 years since we don't live in Vancouver, however, Cork and Fin is on our must do list when we are in town. Francis the proprietor is amazing and his staff follows his lead! Excellent service, food and a terrific wine list. The ambiance is perfect, intimate, a great place for couples and small groups.
We really enjoyed the chef table! It was a fantastic deal, and we were able to try a bit of everything.
I especially loved the lobster!
