Service- Excellent! The server was a level 1 Somalia which was perfect to help pair the wine with the meal.

Food Quality- Superb! Stack the food up with any restaurant in Charleston, SC. ( ps I lived in Charleston for 20 years)

The Chef came to the table to introduce himself and inquire about the food. Again, not many restaurants do that.

This has been my forth trip and will continue to come back.

Can’t miss this restaurant! A must!

I went here on a recommendation and it was fabulous! We went to celebrate a birthday. The food was exquisite. The special touches like the rose petal infused hot towels, the small spoon of lavender with honey and bee pollen just to surprise my pallet and the strawberry sherbet to cleanse our pallet between courses were just a few of the outstanding touches that this restaurant provides. They go above and beyond to satisfy their customer's experience. We thoroughly enjoyed every delicious bite of food. I had the special, halibat, and my guest had the filet. The smores dessert and peach cobbler caboose were also just amazing. We will definitely go back. It was a special treat to celebrate and the staff made us feel special and welcomed.

The food was awesome! I had the 4 course tasting menu including chorizo stuffed bacon wrapped dates, strawberry and rubarb salad, elk, and chocolate pave. Three amuse bouche were served in addition! Even better than the food was the service! It is almost impossible to find this kind of service anywhere! The overall experience was unforgettable! HIGHLY recommend!!!!!!!

Dining at Cork and Flame is always an incredible experience. The staff are knowledgeable and polite and the menu offers something for every palate. We started with the cacio e Pepe and the chorizo stuffed bacon-wrapped dates. My wife had the halibut special and I had the tri-game plate with elk, bison and wild boar. Everything was executed perfectly. I highly recommend dining at Cork and Flame.

We love to go to cork and flame for special occasions and it never disappoints! This time my husband unfortunately got sick as a side effect of chemotherapy in the middle of our 4 course tasting and the waiter and head chef where so understanding and allowed us to stop our 4 course tasting very quickly to allow us to leave and take care of my husband. The head chef even prepared a dessert for me to take home as he knew we where celebrating my birthday. We will have to return soon to enjoy our main course when my husband feels better!

The music was a little loud but nothing over the top. Definitely a pricey restaurant so don't go if you're not willing to spend for the whole experience. All of the food was delicious from the appetizers to the desserts.

Excellent meal at cork and flame. Service outstanding, wonderful ambience and food was terrific. Had the schnitzel with rabbit and Spätzle which was truly authentic German. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and experience one receives. Highly recommend.

Food was scrumptious. Service was exceptional. Portions were somewhat small for cost. Presentation was phenomenal. The small touches were on point.. rose hand towels, pre dinner amuse bouche. Our server was beyond amazing, wish i could remember his name. Noise level was kind of high if going for an intimate dinner ..wasn't sure of other seating areas, we were seated near bar.

First timers at Cork & Flame. Wanted to try something new. Overall we had a nice experience. Would recommend for others to try it. Knew it would be pricey going in. Got to try elk for the first time and enjoyed it. They emphasize libations and we don’t drink.

My wife & I were celebrating our 46th Anniversary and our visit to Cork & Flame exceeded our expectations!
The food was outstanding in flavor & presentation! My wife had a Fillet Mignon Entree and I had the Game Trio. We also had a bottle of wine from their very large selection. Our waiter, Andre N. was very pleasant and attentive along with making very good menu & wine suggestions. The support from the other waitstaff was also notable. Everyone at this establishment made our special occasion…special!
Although Cork & Flame is a little pricy, we feel it is worth it and will be going back again. We recommend Cork & Flame for your special occasion.
