    Food was great. Desert was even better. Great service. Also, was impressed with server actually giving my husband the Happy Birthday Desert. I put in Birthday celebrating in the reservation, but did not expect the resturant would acknowledge my husbands BD!!

    My friend had the chicken club sandwich, my wife had Huevos Rancheros and I had a Wedge Salad with grilled chicken. All wonderful! Great views of the golf course. Excellent service! Will return for a meal again and playing golf on the 28th due to the views from the restaurant!

    Celebrated a few birthday here on Sunday. Pros - pretty restaurant on a golf course. Outside has heaters and a fire place Cons- food was mediocre. Real issue was the poor service. Had to request everything multiple times. We sat with no napkins or silverware until we were able to flag down the server preparing a table next to ours. Brought out the appetizer with no plates to eat off of. Had to ask other servers to find our server several times. Coordinate birthday desserts with hostess upon arrival, said she was “on it”. Nothing ever came out, had to re-request from the server. Had high hopes but will not be returning

    Had a great meal and outstanding service at the Cork Fire Grill last night. I took my mother there for dinner to celebrate her 82nd birthday and things couldn't have gone any better. The staff provide outstanding service, especially our server Leila, she was awesome! I really appreciated Leila's excellent recommendation on the wine! The food was great, the service was great, and the dining room was very nice; I couldn't have asked for anything more, and I can't wait to go back!

    We've eaten here many times and always enjoy the selections and quality of food. Many of the dishes are very creative and a twist on favorites. I highly recommend the coddled eggs. Service is excellent also, and there is a beautiful view of the golf course.

    This is our 2nd time here celebrating a birthday. As with our first time, the Server was very nice & provided excellent service. Food was as good as first time (of course I ordered the same thing cause it was so good first time). Also thoroughly enjoyed our time as we were not rushed out to leave. This is our “go to” restaurant now for gathering. Your personnel are very nice, friendly and happy to help. Keep up the good work.

    I made reservations here after reading about the restaurant’s chef and looking at pictures. It gave me the feeling we were about to eat dinner with a gorgeous dining area and experience like that of Haliewa Joes in Kaneohe, HI. However, that is far from the experience we had. We asked for indoor seating on our reservation and was sent to a booth in the bar area. A bartender was our server. The lights were all the way up. The menu prices were astronomical. Food was ok, but felt late and not worth the ‘I must come back for this again’. It just felt ‘meh’ throughout dinner. No specials. Lots of bartender chatter. Poor details. This was a date night for us, away from kids and daily chaos. Our expectations of a fancy dinner out was just not met. We won’t be back. This is not a place for a ‘special night out.’

    Cork Fire KitchenResponded on January 4, 2023Hi JKAK, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We apologize for your recent experience on your date night and would like the opportunity to address this with you personally, as we always strive to make things right with our guests. Please reach out to our Restaurant Manager, Erica Stone at EStone@tciresortcom. Looking forward to hearing from you! - Cork | Fire Kitchen

    My husband, myself, and brother-in-law went to Cork Fire Kitchen for Christmas Eve dinner I really wanted to give the restaurant 5 stars, because the food is really good, but I just can’t. The food, atmosphere and service was all really top. In fact my husband even said that was the best burger he’s had in years. The problem is the menu last night was very limited. The other problem was that we had a reservation for 5 Pm and somehow it was changed to 5:15. I explained this to the hostesses , yet we still had to wait. There were a lot of empty tables at the time of our reservation. Its very hard on me to wait especially as I am disabled . At first there wasn’t anywhere to sit-down as there were people sitting in the waiting area. It’s hard for me to wait a long time to be seated as I am disabled I finally was able to sit-down while we were waiting for our table. We just aren’t sure why we had to wait. I’m pretty sure that I had it in my notes on our open table reservation, that I am disabled and hard for me to stand up for long periods of time. . As far as their menu, not sure if that’s their normal menu or their regular menu. My husband and I usually give a restaurant one chance because we feel first impressions are the most important. Unfortunately, due to their menu last night we won’t be returning to the restaurant. It’s really a shame because we all had the burgers and enjoyed them. We didn’t feel the restaurant is overpriced. I think had the menu been more extensive last night, we would be returning to the restaurant. Cork Fire Kitchen has the potential to be truly a top notch restaurant, if they can work the kinks out.

    Cork Fire KitchenResponded on December 28, 2022Hi, We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. You are correct, our menu on holidays tend to be more of a limited menu and vary from our everyday menus. Please accept our apology for the wait and your overall experience. We would like the opportunity to address this with you personally. Please reach out to our Restaurant Manager, Erica Stone at EStone@tciresortcom.

    The food was good. No bread, disappointed. Very noisy could not hear tablemates of only 6. Service horrific. Waited 15 minutes for dessert then informed could not complete order kitchen ran out. Cosmo’s a brownie bit screwed up the rest of the order. 18% auto gratuity for 6 or more amounted to $78 for bad service.

    The customer service is top notch. From the hostess to the bartender to the waitress. It was. A great experience! Octopus cooked to perfection, fresh salad, juicy burgers, our whole party loved their food choice. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who stays at Temecula Creek Inn. We went back the next day for breakfast. It was just as delicious. They keep refilling your coffee cup without asking. The servers can’t do enough for you. What a great experience.

    Everything was delicious. And the chef is very creative. The corn bread was stuffed in squash blossoms and then baked. Try it it was fabulous. Also had the brussels sprouts and a wedge salad. All we’re fresh and delicious. I wish this restaurant was in my neighborhood, but it is two hours away. I was in Temecula, starving and found this place online.
