Waited 15 minutes once sat down for anyone to come up to us. Once we got food we had to ask for silver ware. First time coming and last.

Food was great! What was even better was our service! We ran a few minutes late and called to let them know and they told us not to worry, they will see us when we get there. Running late for brunch put us behind for our next scheduled event. I told the waiter our dilemma and he took care of us! Food order was placed drinks at the table in 3 minutes and food out within 10-15 minutes! It was amazing they accommodated us so well! I would highly recommend this cute restaurant as the service and food were amazing! We sat outside but did use the restroom and the inside is very cute and eclectic!

Overall, excellent! We requested an outside table, but the one available at our reservation time was in the sun. The manager sat us inside until another table opened up then moved us out there.

Food was all very good. Started with the firecracker shrimp. Very good, although I was expecting some spice. Also had the tuna poke nachos, which were excellent!

We both had steaks for dinner, which were both delicious and cooked to order. The Mac and cheese side was amazing. The fried Brussels sprouts were also very good.

Service was good, but our waiter seemed a little harried. Could have used a water refill, but very minor.

Overall, if we are ever back in Erie, we will be back!!

We had a lovely dinner at The Cork! It was a busy Saturday night but our server took great care of us. Wonderful wine list! We had the bang-bang shrimp type appetizer and it was the best we've had. My husband's ribeye and my salmon were delish, as well as the sides including yummy brussels. Red velvet cupcake and ice cream were the perfect sweet ending. Class act - it was our first time but can't wait to go back!

The restaurant did an excellent job at social distancing and cleaning. Made us feel very safe. The food was excellent. One comment is on the variability of the Wedge salad. Some days the size is much larger than others or at least it is cut smaller. Make the pork chop a permanent menu item again!

Amazingly slow service for Sunday brunch. We had a reservation at 11:30. We received drinks right away, but we did not receive our uncomplicated breakfast food until about 12:45. It seemed like no one else received their food either. They're either completely under-staffed or they're trying to make ends meet by pushing drinks while customers wait.
