    This is my favorite restaurant in Augusta but I feel that the Kitchen was overwhelmed. In addition to waiting just shy of 2 hours for our main meal, my steak was undercooked and lacked the normal seasoning I expect from the grill. The purée underneath was lukewarm and would have been a 5 star if it was hot on arrival. I was so irritated I had it packed up and had our deserts also packed up. The waiter then lets me know that they are out of bags but I am not sure how true it was. I tried to make contact with our usual server but I think he was scheduled for Inicio’s that night. If I had booked when Inicio’s opened the schedule I am sure it would have been 5 stars as usual.

    Prices out of line with meal and beverages amusee and chocolate finale does not cost enough to have an across the board sale price in the AlaCarte concept for what's being offered in the experience when we read that you have a dress code and we see that you disregard it because you're not booked up, it's just another applebees atmosphere. Cabernet was "young" and was not worth the cost. garnish for the Old fashion was old and dry without the nuance of citrus Gnocchi entree not worth the price. Shrimp vindaloo 5 shrimp for what, with a garnish for $22.00 ..really?

    I AM SO DISAPPOINTED! My surprise anniversary trip ruined. Our second time visiting & the level of service has diminished. Do not waste your time or hard earned money here. For starters our water filtered tap, had debris in it. Brought it to my servers attention he changed my cup however brought it back with same debris. Second disaster, I witnessed the Kitchen manager handle food, tickets, his phone, clean and wipe his nose, no gloves. Touching everything then sprinkling cheese and parsley on people food, and handling food so unsanitary. We should have left then. Our Server gave a very poor description of the Rabbit and Dumplins it was $14 my husband didn't eat it, expressed how it was not what he expected. Braxton apologized but that's it, my husband then asked if he could have something else in lieu of that. The servers response was If we did this for everyone that had an issue everyone would do it. Listen for $20 if I'm not satisfied why wouldn't you want to fix it. Then went on to say he would send the manager however, the manager never came. At this point, that response put a bad taste in our mouths. Our food came it the Georgia wagyu it was decent but not $48 decent. Our bill came up to $74 to not have stellar service as our first trip is very disheartening. Having to pay for food that was not eaten nor removed from the bill...not cool. We were given free apple pie for our anniversary but the damage was already done and because it wasn't fixed there is no coming back from that. We came, we saw, we will never be back again! Update: And to add insult to injury. They stole $10 from us. When you come to a fine dining restaurant you expect to receive just that and because what we received was not that. We did NOT leave a tip. But guess what the credit card transaction shows, Braxton decided that he deserved those $10 and stole them. Being business owners we believe in sowing and blessing people. Had he cared enough to fix our issue. Our tip would've been more.

    I have never had a bad meal at Cork and Flame. It has always been our go to spot. However last night was different. The ambiance was not the same. The lights were bright not the normal soft dark light. The staff was young and inexperienced. Our appetizers were delicious but 2 of the 4 entrees were not. The pork chop was very overcooked and not edible. The accompaniments were cold. The salmon dish was cold and when they returned it after heating it my salmon was warm but the accompaniments were cold. Overall disappointing night for $400 tab.

    I have enjoyed this restaurant since it opened. You can’t find a nicer place for a special night out, great service great ambience. Unfortunately, I really hate the changes to the menu. I am OK with game being an option, but it seems to be almost the only option now.  we go there often the beginning of the week because they are one of a few restaurants open on Mondays and Tuesdays but we are going to have to look elsewhere because the menu has just become too restrictive. They do have salmon as an alternative, but no creative fish or chicken options. Makes me very sad.

    Cork & Flame was one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had. The food was world class, Cork & Flame would do quite well in Las Vegas where I have spent much more and not received the same quality product. My wife and I look forward to returning soon.

    We drive over 65 miles to dine here and have done so around 20 times, generally spending $300+. Now, we are on a carnivore diet, so we were concerned the experience would be less. With a Friday night reservation (including our Carnivore requests), we took a chance. We generally have Paul as our server, but he was not available. The visit was a disappointment. It started with us being seated at a table at which we could barely move our chairs back before hitting the chairs behind us. The manager assured us that he could accommodate our meat-only request. We ordered the Elk Carpaccio – wonderful. We ordered the wagyu medium rare - it was medium. We ordered the salmon without any sauce that was sugary - it had a sugary glaze on it. We ordered halibut - prepared perfectly. When requested the wagyu and the salmon be replaced, the server agreed our food was not as ordered and asked the manager over. The manager (who had assured us he could accommodate our request) came and took our plates with all the proteins (even the halibut with 2 bites missing). Later, he returned with the recooks, but only had the salmon and the wagyu on the plate. We asked about the halibut and the manager left – we assumed to get the halibut; but he did not return. A few minutes later, we asked our server about the halibut and were told that the manager said we already ate most of what he took, and another portion would be $50 more. I asked where our original halibut was, then the server returned and notified us they were cooking another piece. A few moments later, we got the halibut. The portions we received on our re-makes were noticeably smaller but by now the restaurant was very busy and, since the items were now cooked perfectly and the manager had been noticeably disturbed about having to re-make our meal, we just let it go. We were treated as if we were trying to scam the business. We discussed our embarrassment and disappointment on our 1½ hour drive home. We will likely not return.
