I went to Cork mainly for the wine, and I wasn't not disappointed. However, the food was overpriced and the service was slow. After ordering our main plates, an hour went by without food. I asked the staff and learned that the waiter didn't put the order in. The staff was generous enough to resolve the issue and make up for the inconvenience. But it seemed to be a surprising theme the entire night when plates we didn't order were delivered to our table mistakenly and getting a waiter's attention was difficult. I would go again for wine and appetizers, maybe not for a whole meal.
They have a completely new menu that is not on their website. I can for a few specific items that I was so excited for, but they’ve all been removed from the menu. Our server was an angel and brought us some starters on the house to make up for it, but I was still so disappointed
Great food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it
Great wine, great (if small) cheese, and decent other food. Definitely overpriced for their "main plates" which was just a single chicken skewer. Loved that they had gluten free crackers.
Love this place! The food is wonderful and the waitstaff is attentive without being over bearing. Food comes at a good pace. The patio seating is nice, with a good ambiance. Good for dates.
The service was very professional. Our server was always available, yet not overbearing, and provided great recommendations; basically outstanding
My girlfriends & I stumbled upon this gem after a day out in DC and we’re pleasantly surprised by the wonderful food, ambiance and wine selection/ pairing that was guided by the impeccable Hakeem. We dined at great restaurants all weekend during their visit from NYC/ NJ, but this was honestly the best meal we had all weekend. We will be back their next visit as everything was fantastic!
Kareem was awesome and knowledgeable about the menu!
It was a very nice, enjoyable meal with a great server and fantastic ambiance.
Fantastic outdoors date night spot! Impeccable service, super tasty eats- incredible ambiance and extra warmth from the heat lamps. Truly exceptional!
The food and wine options were great!! However, if you are looking for a outside COVID options not the best. It took over 20 mins to get a table despite having a reservation and had to wait on the sidewalk in the cold. There was not enough staff to cover the tables and because we sat down late felt rushed with the 10 pm closing rule. Great food but so so services
Good food, service was terribly slow and it was cold. Outdoor heaters didn’t do much to keep anyone warm. Had to get our entrees to go.
Karim made the night. He selected an amazing bottle of wine for us and the food was simple but so elevated. Will be back
Food was tasty. Suggestion would be to update the online menu so people aren't disappointed once they sit down, because the one you get to choose from at the outdoor patio has less options.
The wine was wet and the glass was of the finest sand. I consumed libations and ate salami. A night that will live in infamy.
Love, love, love Cork Wine Bar. The server & hostess were fantastic. The heaters were perfectly set up to keep us warmduring our dining experience!
Great wine and even better brussels sprouts. Also love Cork's biscuits.
Cozy and socially distanced seating. Exceptional service.
Wine, food and ambiance are always delightful at Cork. The staff are lovely and things feel very safe.
Tasty food and excellent service. Felt completely secure due to their careful COVID arrangements.
Great wine selection and perfect service. Would recommend without a doubt.
Fantastic Wine, delicious food as usual! Cork is also doing a really great job with all COVID protocols - feels very safe to dine outside there without being oppressive.
Great Experience Great Service Can't wait to Go Back
Making you wait to sit before you entire party has arrived is a dumb policy when the table is open and no one else is waiting. Also they need heaters outside now
Thanks to the staff giving great service outside, with rain. Still enjoyed the meal.
We visited Cork in one of the first weeks after it reopened post-quarantine. At the time, the restaurant was only doing outdoor seating, but they did a great job of making the ambience as charming as possible (string lights, turf on the ground, etc.) and the service was in no way compromised, despite the extra distance the staff had to travel to get to and from the tables.
Because the tables are on 14th street (they've literally blocked off a lane of the street for the dining tents), there's definitely a lot of noise and activity going on, but it's not enough to compromise the experience.
The food was AMAZING! Highly recommend the fried chicken and side of biscuits (be sure to order it when you sit down because it takes a little longer than other plates). We also had the vintner's plate, the brussel sprouts, and the flatbread. All were amazing, and it was plenty of food to share amongst the four of us. We drank the Nebbiolo, which was very reasonably priced (around $40 I believe).
As I mentioned the service was fabulous and the staff regularly came by to check on us, get rid of finished plates so we could fit more on the table, refill water, etc.
All in all it was a delightful experience. While I can't wait to get back into the cozy ambience of the restaurant, I was ecstatic to visit Cork again and even more thrilled to see that the pandemic and these new conditions have not compromised their amazing food and sevice.
Great service in the outside Patio! They have added tables and more space so a great amount of distance between tables. The truffle popcorn and fries were amazing. And of course the wine was great! Our waiter was the BEST!
The service was fantastic and our very knowledge server recommended a wonderful and very affordable wine. The food was great and the outdoor seating had a great ambience. The food is fantastic too! After all these years, Cork is still a great place for food and wine!
Always a great night out!
Absolutely delicious food and really appreciated the dedication to ensuring safety.
Restaurant was not actually open but they let me make a reservation anyway
Great wine. Food was nothing special. Except tiny portions.
Their new back patio is very cute. I definitely recommend.
So glad they're back! The patio was lovely and all of the wines and snacks were wonderful. The quail was especially memorable. Can't wait to come back!
Food and coffee was tepid; left email with staff and i hope i hear from them, if not, i am very disappointed
The owner is always amazing and attentive but we have experienced issues with waiters that seem to forget we are there.
Finally had the bronzino, which was wonderful and, as always, love the small, shareable plates and many options for flights.
Excellent food but an unusually long wait, the kitchen and waitstaff seemed overwhelmed and noise levels were very high
Pre theater dinner
I've sent an email to Cork yesterday about this meal, which was the worst I've ever had at a restaurant I used to love dearly. Hopefully they respond.
