Cork Bar & Restaurant
Salmon was slighty over cooked, pricy, and unfortunately I find the place loud- voices always carry in there.
Always great good first time on patio was very nice. Will definitely be back soon
The outside patio area was beautiful and quiet. The food was above average with large portions. The cocktails were a little too sweet for my taste. Price was above average, however not too expensive that I wouldn’t return. Overall I had a great meal in a beautiful environment. I would recommend this restaurant.
Seemed to be chaotic and took long time for entrees
Excellent meal and good service. Highly recommend!!
It seemed to take forever to get drinks or even food. Some tables we’re giving bread to munch on while others received nothing. I believe it took an hour and twenty minutes to receive main course.
Temporary outdoor dining setup was very good. Service was not good at all. Had to wait a very long time for our dinners. My dinner, Asian Garlic Shrimp, was very good. My wife’s dinner, short ribs, were a little dry and not hot when it arrived. She’s had them before and enjoyed them. Usually a better meal.
Food was very good. It was during covid so things were as best as they could be. We were seated next to the street so not really the restaurants fault, so smelled exhaust and people smoking. I am sure if we asked they would've moved us, so our bad. The service was very slow for a not very busy night however it was our anniversary so we were not in a rush. We would definitely recommend based on the food alone.
What a fabulous dinner! Had the Cork salad (amazing) and the eggplant appetizer (was a large portion) and probably the best eggplant dish I ever had! Bill took great care of us.
We LOVED it so much we went back there for dinner the next night and had the short ribs (the Gorgonzola risotto was awesome)!
Were only in Wilkes Barre for 2 nights and had wonderful drinks (cork raspberry martini-yum) and dinners here! Sara is an excellent waitress too!
Definitely try this place out!
It's Covid times so things are a little different. We sat outdoors so I cannot comment on the ambiance as it relates to inside as we were seated under a large tent. Despite that, it was relatively quiet and they did have an outdoor speaker providing background music.
The drinks were fantastic, I had a bourbon drink, a variety of a Manhattan I believe and we also had a sparkle on the beach martini which was light, summer, refreshing drink that was enjoyed. The quality of the food was great. I would recommend this restaurant and I would go back again if I'm in the area again!
This was our first time visiting Cork and we will be returning for sure. Everything was wonderful from the staff to the meal. They have such a nice setup outside for spacing during the virus. Highly recommend!
First time here and they’re doing a magnificent job in setting up an outdoor experience amidst the pandemic. Plants, music, decor, all with an outdoor option, just lovely.
Food was absolutely OUTSTANDING. Highly recommend and we will be going back no doubt.
This was our first time at this restaurant. Would definitely go back. Food was delicious!
This is a hidden gem. It was a great find in Wilkes Barre!
Over priced. Food okay. Loud inside. Service was good but kitchen slow.
Went for son's birthday dinner with friends, everything was great!! From teh wait staff to teh food all was execllent.
It was for Valentines and we couldn’t be happier. Food and service were exceptional!!! The ambiance was spot on for a romantic dinner. We really enjoyed our time and would highly recommend this restaurant.
Valentines dinner, menu was fabulous, food and drinks even better. Can never go wrong here.
Excellent food coupled with outstanding service in a fine atmosphere to enjoy a nice meal. For the area, it's a bit pricey but in my opinion well worth it given the quality of the meal. Will definitely go back!
Great service and food! I was able to have a great conversion without anyone sitting too close to us.
Never fails to impress. Great service, food and value. We continue to return for our Friday date nights.
Everything was great!
Great Service, Large portions
Very good as always! Their food is always great and they always have a great selection and different specials
We have been frequent customers for several years and have seen a decline since Ruth sold the restaurant. On this particular night the restaurant was very busy. We were willing to wait for our food. No complaints there; however when the food arrived our meals were less than perfect. My salmon was a bit overdone and when I turned it over the bottom was burnt. I’m always amazed when the food leaves the kitchen in this manner. Do they honestly think I’m not going to notice? I showed it to our server who took it to the chef. That was it. Never heard another thing about it and when the bill arrived there was no adjustment, or even an apology. My husband ordered the red snapper without the blackening. The server said this was not a problem. The fish arrived dry and overdone. I ordered a club soda and was not offered a refill. Small problems perhaps but where I’m paying $28.00 for an entree I think it should be perfect. Am I wrong?
Hidden gem with delicious food and generous portions. Will definitely return!
Cork is a gem when it comes to great food and service. The food is top notch and the wait staff and kitchen are very accommodating to dietary needs - just ask. Gluten free options are labeled on the menu but they can handle much more than that. We've been several times and they never disappoint. Not inexpensive though so we go less often than we'd like but definitely worth it!
Delicious food, varied menu, I love the seasonal sangria.
Great little find .. Innovative food
Everything good. Phil was great server.
Food portions were good and were fresh. The noise level is a little high on the main floor with the bar but upstairs is quieter.
Terrific menu. Friendly service and great food.
Excellent service food and value. Request Nicole as your server.
She anticipates every need.
We sat at the downstairs bar seating. The service by Luann was excellent. The bar service was fast too. The place was very busy, but everything came promptly! Great food and excellent service!!
In Wilkes-Barre for one night and found Cork B&R highly rated on some sites so we gave it a try. Outstanding! Enjoyed the ambiance of the second floor dining room. Love that there are wine flight, ours reds were great. I have some dietary restrictions and the chef changed a seafood au gratin dish for me and it was fabulous. Our waiter Chris was terrific as he patiently answered many of my questions. If I’m ever back in this area I will be sure to return.
Easy to get a reservation. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was soooo good! Can’t wait to go back!
I really enjoyed the "Old Town" feel with the "Metro" appeal this place has developed. Give it a go!
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. Very authentic experience.
We have been to thus restaurant multiple times and food has been consistently top notch. As a family we eat out several times a week and so happy to have found Corks. Drinks are outstanding as well! Service is friendly and efficient, had a problem (our fault) with our reservation but staff quickly found us a table and were very welcoming with just a short wait. Have been seated upstairs in dining room and downstairs near bar area with the upstairs much quieter, two different experiences but both great. Food is a step up from others in the area. We will keep coming back! Business casual dress. It does gets busy on weekends so would make reservations if going for dinner.
Service was extremely slow and uninspired. The salads appeared hastily composed, the lettuce was pale, and all three of our salads were overdressed. The entrees were tasty and appreciated by all of us - a relief once we received them. We were excited about our second trip to cork, however we will NOT return.
