Try our new, romantic outdoor patio! Once you enter through the ornate garden gate, you will feel safe and relaxed. A mural wall by graffiti artist iSurge, lush tropical greenery and an herb garden helps set the mood! Recipients of consecutive Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence since opening for 6 years straight, and a DiRona Fine Dining Award recipient since 2016. The menu is based on comfort food with global influences. Everything served is prepared from scratch, from cured and smoked meats, charcuterie, pastas and gelato.
The menu changes slightly with every season, and the wine, sake, and beer list is always evolving and growing.

We hadn’t been to the Cook and the Cork since before lockdown. We were excited and appreciative that they had added outdoor seating for safer dining. The area where we Sat in the alley was a little tight, so not great but would still sit there again. Server was friendly and efficient, but we felt a little rushed. They were very busy so I imagine they were trying to turn the tables quickly. We enjoyed our meals, but they didn’t knock our socks off, so $50 a head with just one drink per person didn’t seem like a good value. We had the salmon and shrimp broth, Chilean sea bass, Bolognes . All was good, but not outstanding for the price. We will probably enjoy going back for small plates which we have always enjoyed more and sitting inside may have better ambiance. Will try again. Love supporting local restaurants. This just wasn’t our best experience there.

We booked a table outside and it started to rain really hard. We got soaked. The team at the restaurant offered us an indoor table, along with dry T-shirts to change into and a glass of champagne. They turned what might have been a ruined night out with friends into a memorable evening that we will always treasure. Thank Cook and the Cork!!

The food was just ok. It was not what I was expecting for the price. I was expecting to be wowed but it was like eating regular home cooking. The service and the atmosphere was great. I just think the price need to come down and/or have a better menu.

Wow, just wow. The food here is absolutely amazing. My favorite of the many I had was the spare ribs. Great service & great rustic decor. We had Sauvignon Blanc, greens & beets, Vietnamese spring rolls, pierogis, picked plate, spare ribs & tempura shrimp. You got to try this place.

The food was just perfect and we were seated exactly on time. My friend needed gluten-free and they were more than accommodating. We chose outdoor seating. Great ambiance and friendly service. Reminded me of the outdoor seating in many of the cafes in Italy. Can’t wait to go back.

I really enjoyed my meal. I got the short ribs. They were so tender and the sauce they were cooked in was so delicious!! The wasabi mashed potatoes were very tasty. For dessert I got the Creme Brulee and it was outstanding. I look forward to going back.

Always dined indoors here pre-Covid and love the food and wine. The outdoor patio is so pretty. But, there is a loud consistent noise from either an A/C unit or exhaust system outside that almost ruins the experience.

Based on previous reviews our expectations were high, but not met. Service was excellent and so was the suggested wine. We were very disappointed with the Charcuterie plate. It was small given the price without much selection compared to others we have had. The Empanda that was a special that night was also dissapointing. The Korean ribs were excellent and so were the Short Ribs. Overall, even though some of the dishes were tastey I didn't feel we got our moneys worth.

Amazing experience all around. Sat inside, as they were still at half capacity and socially distanced. Jordan was great, had the Short Ribs Entree while my partner had the Bolognese. Then split the dessert Key Lime special.

Restaurant very dark and super small. When we got there we were told to have a seat at the bar till our table was ready. So we did and the bartender basically ask us if we were there for the reserved 4 chairs that were at the bar. We stated no that we were told to have a seat. So she then states Ok the party is late anyways. My husband and I ordered our drinks 1 red and 1 white wine and then less than 5 minutes were told to pay our Bill at the bar that our table is ready. As we reviewed the menu my husband asked our waiter which seemed to be the only one working the 9 tables that were open “how many crab cakes come with the meal”. He didn’t know and went to back and asked and came back stating 2. We ordered the pickled vegetables and bacon wrapped dates. When we got them the bacon as over cooked on at-least 3 of them and we asked what was an item on the pickle plate as we didn’t recognize the vegetable and yet again the waiter didn’t know. He went to find out and came and told us some name we never heard of. Which is fine as it tasted ok. Now for dinner I ordered small plate of chicken and waffles. And when they say small they were not kidding. Very bland. Nothing special. My husband ordered the larger meal of pasta w meat sauce. He enjoyed his. The waiter came back asking if we wanted more wine and I said no but my husband got another glass of red wine to have w his meal. When we asked for the bill my husband was reviewing saw we were charged for 2 glasses of red wine and 1 of white. We had the waiter explain and he thought we didn’t pay our bar tab so he says but he was the one that told us to pay the bar tab and that our table was ready. I think if we didn’t look at the bill which sometimes my husband doesn’t (lesson learned, always look) or this crappy restaurant would have banked on 30.00 more. I don’t recommend this restaurant.

Beer and wine only and beer selection, at least, was limited. Very low lighting level. Small menu, not diverse choices. Felt that it was overpriced.

Sat outside on the new patio for the first. Only constructive item I can comment on for improvement is somehow reducing the noise from the vent on the roof. It was loud and ran constantly. Other than that, everything is 5-star as always. Had the best short rib dish ever.

We ate in the outdoor area for the first time and we loved it!!! Beautiful and felt private. The food was delicious as always. I would recommend the filet mignon, the small plate pierogies and the small plate ribs.
