If you want to go somewhere with interesting wine by the glass options that don’t cost a fortune, this is the place for you! Plus, their comfort food options are so good. We had the honey butter biscuits and they were 🔥

Cork is a lovely place to spend a relaxing evening with friends. There is a long and interesting list of wines by the glass or bottle, and staff are very knowledgeable about the wines and happy to share their knowledge. The food is excellent and the small dishes pair well with the wines. There is a very nice outdoor patio out back.

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 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.

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!

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

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.

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

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!
