Loved the experience. The servers were very attentive. The food was good. And the view was amazing.
There were several large parties, and with the acoustics it was a bit loud, but the food and the view made up for it.

I have brought the love of my life to Corkfire twice for special occasions. I am very satisfied with all aspects of our dining experience there. Jessica was very friendly and attentive. Thank you for helping to make our Valentine dinner very special.

Everything about our visit was amazing. Our server was polite and well educated on the menu. She was even able to recommend a great wine to pair with our steak dinners. Steaks where cooked perfect and the wine was incredible. Bonus is that even though this is a more upscale restaurant, they still had a great kids menu to accommodate my 3 year old. Highly recommend Cork Fire Kitchen!

We cannot recommend or condemn this restaurant. The food was average, nothing special. In fairness we visited at an odd time between lunch and dinner. The menu presented a choice between breakfast and lunch. We ordered a carnitas omelet and a chicken sandwich. The omelet was uninspired and the sandwich was the same. We might return at a much later hour to sample the dinner menu items but there is no reason to go out of the way to do so.

Everything was great as usual. The restaurant is one of my new favorites. One thing that we noticed on this visit which we missed on others was the price of the coffee. For the main dish and ambience, the prices are similar to other places. The coffee was actually quite high. It won't stop us from going, but thought I would mention it.

We ate there for dinner and breakfast, the service was very good, the menu is not huge, but everything was cooked perfect. The food was served warm to hot, and the plating of the food was good. The price is a bit steep, but we still enjoyed our meals with a view.

My wife and I selected this restaurant to celebrate New Year's Eve because (1) they offered Filet Mignon in their 3 course set menu; (2) they offered live entertainment; and, (3) while they are not inexpensive, the restaurant generally offers good value, based on my past experience. We arrived 20 minutes early for our 8:30 PM reservation, but were not seated until about 8:50 (and would not even have been seated then but for the persistent efforts of one of the hostesses who overruled another hostess who wanted to make us wait even longer) . The entertainment stopped for the night about the same time we were seated. When we requested the filet mignon we were told they had run out and it was not available, so we ordered the kobe steak instead. To the Kitchen's credit it was delicious. But the portions were tiny. The salad was literally only about 2 bites and filled less than 1/3 of the plate and the vegetables and potatoes were basically just a "suggestion." I did not expect large portions, but had to resort to large quantities of bread to feel satisfied. But the dessert was magnificent. A mixed experience, with high highs and low lows, but on the whole disappointing, especially considering the $70 per person charge.

We had an amazing time today at Cork Fire Kitchen. We were a party of 16! Although menu was limited due to the large number of guests, we did enjoy our food and the views are amazing! The lady who seated us, Christy, was accommodating and we felt welcome. The servers were friendly. We had Jake as our server on our table, he was amazing and very polite. We never felt rushed and could just enjoy our time. He was very patient with us and also very welcoming. We had also time to enjoy their beautiful golf course views and had a little photo op which was a great bonus! Will definitely bring guests or families back to these beautiful restaurant! B

Music was so loud on Christmas. Could not enjoy any conversation in the dinning room. Menu selection was poor and food was not good.
Very disappointed

Cork Fire was perfect for our Christmas dinner. The only issue we has was the band that started playing. They were extremely loud and they went even playing christmas music even though it was christmas day.

Great place for an excellent Christmas Eve meal! The service by the entire staff was attentive and everyone was friendly and courteous. We had the special prime rib Christmas dinner and it was the best prime rib I have ever had! Not inexpensive, but definitely worth it for a special occasion.

We’ve been coming to Corkfire Kitchen for many years to celebrate our families special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays.
This visit we saw a menu change. The cheese board was always served with attention to detail on a board but this time it looked like it was thrown on a plate, and the selection wasn’t as usual, disappointing.
I got the scallops which were large but the dish was extremely salty served on some beans, weird. The Grilled Romaine salad was delicious. Others in our party of 9 had a wedge salad with thousand island, why?
Some got a piece of meat which was either too cooked or not at all.
We noticed the menu was new and not enough selection as before. I miss the
Shrimp and Grits.

The menu could have more variety, the food was good but not for the price , husband ordered burger well done and it was dark pink throughout the entire burger , ordered the rib eye and it was also good but not for $95 dollars , it had a strong after taste that I would say is a required taste and I would like to see more options for the ribeye other than one flavor .
