Went for Valentines Day and had a fabulous meal. Was seated in the back and was perfect. Noise level was much better than in the main dining room. Wait staff were top notch. Just didn’t enjoy the tv showing Hallmark movies. A little cheesy.

Best restaurant in Erie hands down! I LOVE THE CORK! The atmosphere, the staff, THE FOOD always the best in Erie!! They have such an amazing menu but I keep coming back every time for the filet mignon it’s without a doubt the best steak in all of Erie but also the best steak I’ve had anywhere! It’s always so tender and seasoned to perfection but what makes their filet so over the top is there DEMI SAUCE!!! Manager Tammy and Chef Joe are the absolute nicest people you’ll ever meet! Ask for Krista as your server she is the best!! If you are looking for the best steak go the Cork!!!

I was disappointed in my meal. Lobster bisque was almost like a seafood broth and not a good one. The brie was good but should have been served with a soft bread. My strip steak was medium. I asked for rare to medium rare. I was asked if I would like it replaced i did refuse but appreciated the gesture. This establishment started off strong with great menu items and sides to match but has since declined. I do not expect to spend 35.00 on a strip steak served with red skin potatoes anyone can make at home. And they were tasteless as well. I love the ambiance and the upscale dining you are bringing to erie but I feel you have lost focus on the quality of food you are serving.

We chose Cork 194 for our anniversary dinner and had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding from appetizer to desert, well prepared, and attractively served. The wait staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the entire evening.

Our experience at Cork started off in a positive fashion:
- prompt service
- delicious appetizers (cheese plate and beef carpaccio)

However, after the appetizers we saw a significant drop in service. The server neglected our table for long periods of time. Our entree was late and water was refilled once (by a thoughtful busser, who thought we were finished, before our entree).

It took an additional 20 minutes to get our check after we finished dinner.

I must point out three things:
- we dined around 7p on a Thursday and the restaurant was not busy by the time we got our entree.
- though the appetizers were wonderful, the dinner salads were less than ideal: gristle filled steak and minimal dreasing.
- this is the first negative review ive written. The experience was unfortunately that bad.

The food was prepared perfectly as far as texture, quality of products and doneness. I had the boar shank and although very good it lacked a subtle touch that would make it unique such as using wine or herbs. My date loved her tuna steak.

We were seated against the wall which was comfortable.. However they seated another couple right next to us when there were many empty seats farther away. It was uncomfortable they were so close ..

Went to The Cork for our 4 year anniversary! Stopped at the bar for a drink before dinner, Margarita was the best one by far. Great service.

Went to the host to be seated, got to our table ordered, arugula and walnut salad with shrimp, delicious
Rolls, great
Swordfish for me and Scallops with the gluten free pasta for her, awesome

We had a ton of time to talk and enjoy each bite.

Thanks Cork, you made our 4 year anniversary dinner one for the books 👍🏻

My husband and I had a wonderful brunch on Sunday! Absolutely delicious meal. I’m kicking myself for not remembering my server’s name because she was fabulous!! Encouraging us to explore the drink menu and order something new without even a hint of pushiness. She truly seemed to enjoy her role of guiding us through the menu to set us up with an incredible experience- and she was quite successful! Always a lovely meal with the best quality food. Take care of your service staff because they are what sets you apart from the other “good” restaurants in town.

Whilst most of the food was good, both orders of the duck fat potatoes were undercooked. The server was friendly, but there were large periods of time in between her visits to the table. The plates were also left on our table for an extended period of time, with one person’s plate still being at her seat when we left—long after she finished eating and we had paid. The server had been to the table at least four times from when our friend was finished eating to when we left, and the plate was still on the table. Whilst my wife’s plate wasn’t left on the table for that long, it was still in front of her 20 minutes after she finished eating. In addition, the server spilled hot coffee on my wife.

We’ll be back, but we all agreed that something had to be said.

2 brunch meals. Both were cold when served Asked to have them warmed up. After 10 minutes they were returned warmer, but still cool. Noise level was very irritating. 4 piece band was playing. Nice music, but it overwhelmed the restaurant to the extent that we were watching people around us leaning closer to each other to converse. Will not return and will not recommend to acquaintances.

Very pleased with our meal and loved the live music. The pictures on the web site fall short of showing a very warm atmosphere. A great place especially for a special occasion. Prices are on the higher end but worth it, definitely the menu reflects fine dining. I ordered the cauliflower steak it was amazing and the dessert special that evening was upside down banana cake...it was heavenly!! We dine out frequently and I expect we’ll be returning on a regular basis. Can’t wait!!

Overall, this was a great experience. The food was amazing, the wine was great, and our server was awesome. The two things I wish were different are: the corners of our table had crumbs and a wine stain in one corner, and like other reviewers have mentioned, if the restaurant is half full or more, it is going to be challenging to hear whomever you are with. Other than that, we would definitely come back again!

Thanks for the great service. Visited a day after New Years, the staff was friendlier, more relaxed than usual . . .all in a good way, a positive add to our evening. Enjoyed roasted chicken - perfect comfort food with beets and stuffing on a cold evening. Good crab cakes. Nice cold draft beers.

Everything was great. Only complaint is that the live music was a bit too loud, which made it difficult to have a conversation at our dinner table. I’ve had the same experience at the Skunk & Goat Tavern - just turn the sound down a smidge!

Our server was friendly and very attentive. Food arrived quickly and was cooked to order for both me and my wife. We both had filet's and both were tender and flavorful. My cocktail was incredible that came with cherries that were incredible (never thought I'd rave about a cocktail cherry). All around great experience.
