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.

Our goal is to have all our guests be a part of the fun, and to share the love we have for the restaurant, food, and staff.

We try to come here at least once a month. Dave is always our waiter and he’s absolutely amazing. The ambiance is relaxing, eclectic, and comfortable (plus we love the music choices). The food is incredible. We’ve liked every single dish we’ve ever tried, and you can tell how much pride the chef takes in their work - the passion shows from the plating to the taste.

If you’ve never been here before, I highly recommend that you try it out. You’ll fall in love.

Cook and the Cork was outstanding once again. I've been now 4 times and each time I've ordered the Tamarin Honey Glazed Short Rib... it's simply wonderful, every single time! I've also been able to try a variety of other items from my friends plates, and nothing have tasted has been short of excellent. The Rib appetizer is solid, the KFC is fantastic, the bacon dip chips are a must, and so much more.

I wish I remembered our servers name, he's been the guy the last 4 times and he's excellent, and I always enjoy being remembered by the waiter even after only attending a few times.

Highly recommend this place, haven't been anywhere better in Coral Springs yet.

Some staff were very friendly others were not. The waiter was not forthcoming when questioned about various offerings. Lack skills of a higher-end restaurant in Coral Springs. I felt the small dishes were very good. But when I ordered the Korean fried chicken it was basically the same as the small dish chicken just different sauce same mash potatoes. It should be noted I question him about the differences since I was ordering chicken twice.

My partner enjoyed the spare ribs and the wine was very good.

Dirty plates were left on our table.

Overall for the price I was disappointed.

If I went back I would probably only order the small plates.

My husband and I have lived in Ramblewood for the past 5 years and never venture into this neighborhood restaurant. We were so happy to have gone and sad we waited so long to do so, the food is amazing and I was impressed with their wine selection. One of our new favorite spots.

We had the tempura shrimp, Mahi , and pork chops. All were delicious. Mahi was nice and crispy on the outside. Pork chop was very tender and seasoned very well.

Great food along with wonderful service by David!

Potato Gnocchi special was amazing, as was the strip steak and pappardelle bolognese. We were recommended a fantastic bottle of wine by David that was delicious and didn’t break the bank. Desert was good as well.

Will definitely be coming back!

An interesting, different kind of menu. The food and service were excellent. Definitely fresh, and thoughtfully prepared. Wine list and drink menu were solid. Service was great too. My wife has a food allergy and the waiter addressed our concerns and checked w the chef when requested. Would go again and may request the pretty, outdoor seating. Local gem!

We had been to the restaurant before and noticed a downward change in the food choices and quality. Maybe the outdoor dining experience might be better, but at the price point for this restaurant the experience was underwhelming.

Ended up at this jewel of a place at the recommendation of a friend who's been dying to go. My daughter and I sat at the bar to take advantage of the happy hour and enjoyed two sangrias each. One red and one white...don't know which was better because they were both delish! We opted to share several (actually many) small plates and enjoyed each one of them. Definitely worth checking this place out not only for the food but it's wonderful ambiance.

Although the food was good the menu was strange with heavily sauced and spiced food. Three out of four of us ate small plates instead of entrees because of this. The room is dark with no table cloths and little atmosphere considering the price of the food. A very pricey meal and not a full dinner. Desserts were good.
