    The vibes are right at Cork - but it didn’t go past that! It was absurdly hot upstairs, the AC was not on in the middle of summer. Many guests were visibly sweating, not a cute look. It took a long time to finally get menus and then part of our meal (charcuterie and cheese) took substantially longer, all in the heat and with a server who wasn’t particularly attentive or helpful and actually forgot to ring in part of our order. The board, once it came, was not even worth the wait. Oh, they were also out of olives.

    We have eaten at Cork many times through the years and always enjoyed it. The food and wine are great and there is great variety. Unfortunately, last night was an exception. While the food and wine were great as usual, the air conditioning was not working. By the time I finished dinner, I felt physically ill. Before we were seated, we should have been informed of the problem been given the opportunity to go elsewhere.

    Great food. Cork never disappoints! We had the duck confit and steak, along with the cheese and charcuterie platter and it was all delicious. Glad to see a more robust menu back after a scaled down period due to COVID. The outdoor seating has been expanded, and the wine flights are back. Will definitely be going back again this summer.

    Kind and knowledgeable staff from the moment we checked into our reservation throughout the evening until we left. We had a glass of wine each - with excellent advice from our server - and split a cheeseboard and the biscuits (🤤) - also a recommendation from our server. They were so sweet to our dog, and I loved how pet-friendly the patio was.

    Cork wine bar is one of the gems of the 14th street restaurant corridor. My husband and I had a great meal and our server was genial and helpful. Standout new dish for us was the seasonal asparagus. We will be back. Both the indoor and outdoor dining are simple and comfortable settings. If you are not interested in too many frills and fancy place settings, but good food and well curated beverages, Cork is for you!

    We had brunch reservations for Easter and when we arrived, we were one of 4 tables and the service was pretty slow and clunky. We waited 45 minutes to get our drinks, the plates stay on the table for a really long time. Our waitress seemed flustered even though there were not a lot people in the restaurant. Food is great, but the service was supbar

    I’m kicking myself for living in the U St area for years and only now discovering Cork. The food was exceptional—brussels sprouts, flatbread, cheese board, hanger steak, duck confit—the ambiance was lovely and the service was wonderful. Shout out to Kyle for the fabulous time and great recommendations. My friend and I had such an awesome time that were coming back in a few days to try out the brunch menu. Highly recommend checking out Cork if you haven’t already!

    Came for brunch with family and friends. Made reservations the day before, and almost all the slots for brunch time were filled. Came in expecting to be packed, there was barely anyone there! I guess it worked out because my party arrived 30mins later than scheduled time due to trying to find parking, and they still seated us. Food was good. My party had the charcuterie board, arugula salad, biscuits, beef burger, the scrambled eggs with toast. My guests that had the beef burger said it was good, it was a huge burger so well worth the money. The arugula salad had a decent amount of dressing and was filling. The charcuterie board was the well rounded one with different meats, cheeses, and spreads called the Vinter’s Plate. I suggest everyone give a try at it will bring life to your palate. I really wanted the cinnamon rolls from here but they ran out of them by the time we got there :( For drinks, we had the flight of mimosas. Let me tell you…their goal was definitely to get you feeling good as it was mostly 90% champagne with a dash of juice lmao! One person in my group had the Thyme with Gin, that’s definitely a strong grown man drink! Ambiance wise, it was ok, and wasnt loud. It was mostly quiet as again it was a slow day for them that Saturday afternoon. It was cold in there due to the front door being open majority of the time. I think I would come to dinner here with someone that never experienced fine dining. But for brunch, it wasnt my type of setting.

    Had a great time. Only annoying thing is that hostess would not proceed to seat me before party was complete, even though we had a reservation. The suggestion to browse the market while waiting from my friend didn’t sit well with me.

    We had a great experience upstairs at Cork! We had the crispy brussel sprouts and seasonal flatbread- both were amazing and good value for the price. I had a rose flight and my friend had the white wine flight- white wine was definitely better but both were great, especially for the price point! Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. We will both be back soon!

    Went here for dinner during Restaurant Week. Staff was phenomenal. They were obviously under pressure because of the extra diners for Restaurant Week, but they were very attentive. The food was great and the wine was well selected. This place felt like a secret find, but also a place where DC regulars frequent, so unique.

    A friend and I ate outside on their patio/courtyard last night (37 degrees!) and had a great time. They have plenty of space heaters and it is fenced in which might help keep wind out? We had truffle popcorn, biscuits, fried chicken, and a salad, all of which were delicious. I want to give a special shout out to our waiter who was also tending bar inside! It was a lot of manage I'm sure (4 tables outside, and bar inside) but he did a great job. He was slow to bring a drink and owned up to forgetting it and comped us. Throughout it he was friendly and took the time to answer questions about the menu. Really appreciate great service especially when short staffed! Will def go back soon!
