Cork Fire has never yet disappointed. We always love the creative choices on the menu—the only problem is narrowing down which one to try. After starting with nicely done salads for both of us, I had the lamb sirloin with goat-cheese grits, which was PERFECT; he had the fish and chips and said it was the best rendition he'd ever had. I had a bite and agreed! (Not usually a fan of that dish, but this was pretty great.) We topped it all off with the delightful anise-and-orange panna cotta and the ricotta donut holes, and left not just satisfied but replete. Start to finish, Jenn was a wonderful server, the exact right mix of helpful, slightly saucy, and knowledgeable. Can hardly wait for the next visit!

Corkfire is a nice find. Patio dining is nice when weather cooperates. Like every restaurant these days, it struggles a bit for consistency but overall good food, good wine menu by the bottle and solid service. Would like to see the menu expanded a bit especially for more choices in appetizers and traditional steaks.

GREAT food and good service. The best salmon I have had in a while. Caution: the wine list leaves A LOT to be desired. We brought our own and paid the corkage fee.

Nice location, pleasant atmosphere, good friendly accommodating service,
the menu has tasty choices but a bit pricey. The server listened when one guest needed gluten free and other diet specific adjustments to her order.
Desserts were yummy. My seven year old grandson got bored and antsy, so not the best place to linger over coffee with kids.

We had been here a few times before and it had always been an excellent experience. This time was much different. There service was good but everything else was fair. I am not sure if it was an off day but when you go to a nice dinner and spend $200 for a date night you expect more from a place. The food was fair, decent, but not great like it had been in the past. My wife and I wanted to stay close to home to celebrate our anniversary and to be honest this experience may be the reason we do not ever go back. There is really nothing that I can say that was excellent or even above average.

Was disappointed as I used to frequent this restaurant when it was just the Temecula Creek Grille. The updated version just makes me think of a brewery. They got rid of much of the Native American feel and flavor
The prices were outrageous. And the food below average. All the meals appear to be premade and waiting in the back given how fast they came to the table. I asked for a medium steak it was well done almost burnt. The wine list was less than impressive with very few local wines and the markup on the prices was more than I’ve ever seen. Portions were small and there was no bread service. The ambience was loud. And disruptive. Definitely won’t return. Our waitress laura was very fun day as well as the hostess.

Terrible service. We had a reservation at 1:45 and the waitress failed to tell us brunch ended at 2 so a little after 2 we were ready to order and she said sorry bar food only. We made a comment that she should’ve told us and she got an attitude. She did ask the kitchen if they can make an exception (bc we had to ask for this), which they did. The waitress kept rolling her eyes and just seemed like we were such a burden to her day. It was a gender reveal I was doing for 7 of my close girlfriends and her service absolutely ruined it. Every single one of my friends made a comment about how she was terrible. I wish I would’ve gotten her name. It was outside on 10/31 around 1:45 party of 8. I was looking forward to having a good experience, but didn’t at all. And I brought cupcakes with the gender revealed inside and they wouldn’t let us take them out of the box to even cut them to see the icing color. Overall, super disappointed and not sure if I’ll ever go back or recommend this place.

We've been dining at Cork Fire Kitchen for a while now. The only thing change was the service. It was the first time that we had an excellent server, Laura the younger one. There are 2 Laura’s and this time we did not wait that long for our food. Laura is very friendly, attentive and professional.

I wish they have a bigger menu though.

Second time visiting for dinner and food was as good as last time. We love the location and staff are so friendly, Jen is our favorite. Unfortunately, we had two tables near us complaining about everything, they clearly wanted a free meal which is embarrassing but didn’t ruin our night, I feel sorry for people that have to behave like this. Yes service was slower than last time but no need to be rude, we have all read how hospitality is struggling right now so no need to kick them, they are doing there best. We love this place and will revisit when back in the area.

Fire and Cork is an excellent place to dine in Temecula. Whether you are inside or out the view of the golf course, ponds and the mountains in the distance make for a relaxing and enjoyable meal. Bring your friends.

On our 40th wedding anniversary we were greeted with an abundance well wishes and prestige. The table was nice with a beautiful view. The meal (a flatiron steak, creamy potato, mushrooms, w/a flavorful black garlic purée) was so good. The staff made our night memorable. Great job on making my wife and I feel special! Please keep up the good work. One Caveat… it would put the meal over the top if there was a nice bread like something lite and homemade offered with the meal. Looked like the intent was there because of the presence of bread plates on the table. With that said, please know we enjoyed our visit.

Food was excellent but service was lacking. Server was pleasant enough, just not attentive. We had to ask 3X for utensils and 2X for water then couldn't get the check in reasonable time. I hope that with more staffing these issues will disappear because the atmosphere and food are great!
