Limited menu but each dish is a delight. We did the 4-course fixed price menu with wine paired for each course. We considered it a very good deal. Both of us had the daily specials (scallops—real ones and a ham salad). Portions were perfect for us. We normally do eat 4-courses. No problem devouring everyone. Parsnip soup was a delight too. C&T is now our favorite Fredericksburg restaurant.

This is the 3rd time I've dined at Cork and Table, and I haven't been disappointed once! The food is delicious, the presentation is beautiful, the service is lovely and the price is reasonable. I would recommend Cork and Table to anyone living in the area or visiting from anywhere else!

Incredible food quality. Reservations were respected and table waiting with water poured. Weekends they need 2 waitresses, a child serving and clearing your meal made me feel a bit awkward with my guests. Class act otherwise. Very friendly waitress but she did everything herself from serving to phone calls to clearing and setting tables to bar service to pickup orders. Great dinner packages for all

My favorite restaurant in Fredericksburg. Food is delicious and thoughtful, wine selection is impressive, and service is always top-notched. My husband and I come here once or twice a year when we are in town and look forward to our meals each time.

Cork and Table has a small staff and the majority, if not all, of the food is made to order. Keep this in mind while waiting for service and your food. The wait is well worth it and you won’t be disappointed. You can tell the chefs take great care it their ingredient selection, preparation, and presentation. Everything we ate was beautifully prepared and amazingly delicious. It isn’t advertised that much and there isn’t always a paper menu available, but do yourself a favor and get the Chef’s Tasting Menu. The chef will be happy to come out and go over it with you. If you enjoy wine, then definitely go with the Chef’s Tasting Menu and wine pairings. Do yourself a favor and take a trip to Cork and Table.

Cork and Table should be your "Go To" place in Fredricksburg.. in fact even if not in Fredricksburg, go here! The food is delicious and fresh. Wine list is full of many varietals and all fairly priced. Owner Jim is friendly and took extra time to speak to us about the wine list and his favorites. Do not over look Cork and Table, it is absolutely worth the visit! We cannot wait to go back!

Our first trip to Cork & Table was exceptional. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
The only disappointment was the fact that they didn’t serve liquor. My husband is not a wine drinker and he would have enjoyed a drink.

My husband and I went during restaurant week, so it was a choice of 2 menus. The service was excellent, and the wine choices were very good. Unfortunately, our soup course was cold, which diminished the flavor, but we ate it. The beef entrée was outstanding, and the dessert was excellent. We were glad to hear that the restaurant is moving to a larger place. This will improve the ambience considerably.
Jim is a talented chef, and we have known him for several years. We are glad to see his success, and hope
to return to his the Cork & Table again. We highly recommend Jim and his restaurant!!

Very narrow dining area which creates a lot of noise. Smoke from kitchen was very uncomfortable and enough to irritate eyes. Gluten free options on menu were not available, a serious health issue if the diner did not ask specifically. Food was excellent. Service slow on a busy night.

This was a European dining experience. Three Exceptionally well cooked, tasty and well presented courses with good wine pairings moderately priced. The staff friendly and personable. The only reason I didn’t give the dinner 5 stars was the vegs and potato were served just like warm.

This last visit saw us have the Four Course Fixed Price menu and again, the food was superb. My wife had the wine pairings with her meal and truly enjoyed the complimentary bouquet to each course flavor.

The food, as always, was delicious! The scallopss are perfectly cooked. The sauces are spot on-- great depth of flavor. It is by far the BEST crab and corn chowder I've every had. I highly recommend the foyer course option with the sticky toffee pudding.

Though I had eaten at Cork & Table several times plus my husband's wine club has held several of their dinners there, I was still nervous having recommended this for a friend's 40th birthday celebration. She, nor the other guests, had dined here before. It was no surprise everyone was thrilled with their meals. Service was excellent as usual.

RUDE, RUDE, RUDE! The chef took an immediate dislike to one of my friends as soon as she walked in the door and because he was waiting tables and he was "THE CHEF" he thought he had the right to dictate her choice of SALAD DRESSING by being an overbearing bully and refusing to honor her request for a different dressing on his "HAND CRAFTED SALAD" (of greens and a little blue cheese) and then arguing with everyone at our table when we called him on his abusive behavior. We will NEVER return to Cork & Table and advise everyone to avoid this restaurant because if you don't like something, or heaven forbid are allergic to something, and have the audacity to asking for a substitute, you'll find out that THERE ARE NO SUBSTITUTIONS and damn you for even asking!
