The dining room was crowded but service still good. Our server, Tammy, was very attentive to our needs. Food took a little longer than normal but fortunately we were not in a hurry and just enjoying conversation among friends.

Just bad service. Waitress had many tables with large parties. We had people seated after us then they where served and gone before we even got drink orders. 2 hours for dinner is a little much especially when I thought this would be a special place to celebrate my nephews 21st birthday with a nice meal. They didn’t even acknowledge we were celebrating a special occasion. I was disappointed. But never rude to anyone. We spent $300 for nothing special at all. Super disappointing.

It’s almost like someone gave up in the kitchen. The Mac and cheese dish was delish and was presented nicely. The cheese plate that was $20 look like my 1st grader put it together. The jam tasted like smuckers you didn’t even try!!! The two desserts the churro was a give up and such a flop could be so much better. The cobbler looked like you took the time to make it and present it. Delicious! We won’t be going back. Way too pricey for what we got

We love the Inn and restaurant and have stayed there many times and look forward to staying many more!!!
One suggestion only we would make...as outstanding as the dinner menu is, I used to order Grilled or sauteed Salmon, with mashed potatoes and asparagus!! Very simple and delicious! I would prefer some simple items such as those on the menu in addition to the ones with all the sauces and added ingredients...

My wife has had many Saturday meetings at the Inn. When we planned to get together with friends who moved to Banning, your restaurant seemed to be the halfway point. We are so glad we came back to enjoy your restaurant. The decor was homey, the view was great, our waitress was excellent and the food was marvelous. Kudos all around.

Highly recommended and they have golf!

We were here for a girl's golf getaway and loved every minute! Food was delicious at dinner and the next morning for breakfast too. Our server Britanni was a delight! Definitely coming back. Maybe this time we'll even bring our hubbies.

I loved this restaurant ! The food was absolutely delicious. I didn’t expect to be blown away, but I was. We went back a second night during our trip. Who is this chef and where has he been hiding ? Time to spread the word.

Well done, sir.

It was my mother’s 90th birthday celebration. Everyone at the restaurant were very nice in granting our requests for decorations & having our own cake brought in. Everything was delicious & my mother was very happy & comfortable. Thank you for all your help.

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.

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
