I really enjoyed the "Old Town" feel with the "Metro" appeal this place has developed. Give it a go!

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.

We had reservations for 6:00 pm. and were seated immediately upstairs. The "porch" was quiet and intimate. We had quite a bit of fun with Nicole our server. She was very attentive without being overbearing. We relied on her suggestion for an undecided entre and desert. The eclectic menu has choices for every taste. The timing of the courses could not have been better. The food was wonderful, served hot and presented very well. The wine list was adequate. We had an excellent meal at a reasonable price with great service. We'll certainly return.

Food good. Service good. But a party of about 20 women came into room and noise level was very high. It was really annoying that we could not talk at our table with all the noise from the large party.

We have recommended Cork to our friends. Although we live in Annville Pa. , we love having having dinner at Cork every time we travel through the area.

This is a hidden gem in Wilkes Barre. There is a great variety to choose from on the menu. Then when you get your food, you'll be in awe of the potion size. From the apps to the main course, and even the dessert, the size blew me away. Moving from quantity to quality. The food tasted amazing with just the right blend of every ingredient. Highly recommend the Penne a la Vodka with Grilled Chicken!!

This is the not the first time that we have dined at Cork Bar and Restaurant. Cork's menu and prices are representative of "fine dining" in our community but this visit, the service was not. We normally enjoy a relaxed pace when dining out but we experiences extremely long waits in between our server's visits and had to ask twice on how much longer our appetizer would be presented. Not sure if it was kitchen or server issues but our experience was disappointing. Food quality was as good as ever so we still would recommend trying it.

We have been here before and thought the food was exceptional so came back this time with our 10 yr old son in our group of six celebrating husband’s birthday. Waitress was so thoughtful and provided several off menu items for my son to choose from. Cocktails were spot on, tried pomegranate cosmopolitan and it was wonderful. Was later in evening so eventually were the last patrons in upstairs dining room which was perfect and as restaurant quieted we lingered, never felt rushed. Food was absolutely delicious, expertly prepared. Service excellent. Would recommend and plan on returning soon.
