    The experience was horrible. First they sat us in a booth too small for 5 people. Then the wine menu was on an iPad that kept shutting down. They neglected to tell us their menu was “family style” and we should order protein, vegetable and starch. The food all came out staggered which would not be conducive to family style. The meals were very small (like 3 bites) and incredibly over priced. Certainly not enough for one person so never enough to share “family style”. We left hungry and very disappointed.

    The quality has definitely dropped from a few years ago. The avocado toast were not nearly as good as before and the “flower” arrangement of the avocado seemed unnecessary and actually took away from the dish. Could have used a bit more salt sprinkling and the pistachios seemed old.

    While the food was great, they sat us in their “patio.” It was more akin to an alley and I would be shocked if it were up to health codes. They sat us next to their dumpster and there were rats running under and around our table for the entire meal. It is hard to enjoy much of anything when all you can hear are rat squeaks beneath your table. I will not be returning here.

    Cork has the best avocado toast I've ever found. I don't know where they get the bread but it is delicious. We had the monkfish and the octopus, both done to a delicate perfection. Also love the wine flights!

    The restaurant was not even half full and the service was terribly slow and inattentive. We did not have a designated server despite having a reservation so every time we needed to order food or drinks we had to flag down a random server walking by to get assistance. The charcuterie plate had 7 very thin slices of meat and 3 tiny pieces of cheese for $26, so overpriced. The carbonara was mediocre and used short spiral noodles. The duck confit was good, but a very small portion with 3 small fingerling potatoes. They did bring dessert out with a candle as we were celebrating birthdays, which we appreciated. Overall, a mediocre place with bad service, and very overpriced for how little food you get. We left hungry and underwhelmed. We won’t be back.

    Strangely, on a Thursday night, this large and attractive place was mostly empty. The service upstairs was excellent. They have an extremely limited offering of spirits, one bourbon and one vodka available. More strangely, it is a wine bar and they have an extrememly limited offering of wines. We had a bourbon and a vodka and 2 glasses then a bottle of a good and reasonably priced Gruner Veltliner. With the cocktails we had the anchovies which were delicious - sweet and tangy, nicely presented with a black garlic butter and bread. Yummy. That was followed by fried chicken and a kale salad. The kale was okay. The website says you get 6 pieces of fried chicken, but we got only 3. No matter, 6 would not have been enough either, as this chicken is fantastic! Kudos to our great waiter (name starts with "K") and the nice guy who gave us a tour of their outdoor spaces. I don't understand why the place isn't packed. It should be.

    We had a great evening - and when the rain interupted Kyle came to the rescue moving our table under the electric awning. And when the rain kept coming Kyle and his team moved us inside. And when the rain washed away our anchovies and wine - Kyle and his team served us more of both! As always the food, wine, staff and atomosphere - both wet and dry - were and will continue to be excellent. We love our neighborhood Cork!!

    Server forgot to put two of our items into the system. We asked about it after waiting a long time. They apologized and was ok bc we weren’t in a rush. Also for the grilled cheese the menu didn’t specify it was goat cheese, which my friend hates so he didn’t eat it. Chicken and lentils were too salty. However we loved the ambiance.

    Great place for a glass of wine and an appetizer, or just to shop the bottles downstairs, but I wouldn't recommend for dinner. The server was not very familiar with the menu and the portions of even the "plates" were more like appetizers. The QR code menu showed a seasonal flatbread that was conveniently vegetarian for my veggie friend. What came had salami on it and although the server kindly comp'd it and got her something else, she said people often miss where it says it contained meat, although it said that no where. Favorite thing we ate was the fried calamari and rock shrimp, they were so crispy and not overbattered and came with a great remoulade. The plate we were most dissapointed by was the veitners plate (cheese and charcuterie board), the portion was extremely small, like almost for 1, although they encourage sharing. Additionally, our server couldn't tell us what the two cheeses were.

    Highly recommend an evening at Cork! Wonderful food, fantastic wine selection and terrific service. Absolutely make a reservation for a wine tasting as well. Kyle walked us through the tasting and you will walk away with a new appreciation of the wine. They do it all very well and if you find a wine or two or more you like after the tasting you can find it in the wonderful selection downstairs. We look forward to our next evening at Cork!

    We dined on Valentines night. Out server was delightful - very engaging. Our food however was not so good. Both the fried chicken and calamari/shrimp entrees were VERY salty. Also, for the charcuterie platter, we would have preferred the option to choose our own selections, not chef’s choice.

    I’ve been here several times and always enjoyed a reliably good meal and experience. This time the staff was absolutely terrible bordering on incompetent. Our server didn’t know the basics of wine, even though this is a WINE BAR. She repeatedly forgot what we ordered and had to come back a second time to verify. The cocktails were poorly mixed and the food was subpar. I won’t be returning- too bad - it was a good run.

    Food was great, service was poor. I saw reviews showing this so knew ahead of time to expect this. Cheese board had no idea what cheese I was eating, ordered food with waitress and she didn’t write down so had to come back and ask again. The avocado toast is amazing, one of the best burrata salads, I would go back… just don’t expect much from the staff.

    Stop running out of everything. We tried four times to get something to eat, each time the server came back and told us that they were out of it. She even complained it was becoming a hassle telling the customers that they didn’t have half of the menu. This place is convenient, it’s amateurish, but it is convenient. When they have the menu. Go a few blocks further.

    We arrived at 6:25 and ordered right away as we had an 8 o’clock performance to make. Service was completely in disarray. Each main course for 4came separately but one never arrived until 7:40 despite repeated reminders. I had two bites and had to pack up the meal so as not to be late for play. One appetizer didn’t arrive till the 3 person was fed. The waiter was embarrassed, providing extra splashes of wine and dessert for 2 of us who got to eat in a timely fashion. He seemed flummoxed by the kitchens lack of organization. At least we were not charged for my meal . I don’t blame the waiter but the poorly managed kitchen. Probably will not be back which is too bad as the food is good.
