Our appetizer was good. Our entrees were awful. I had the lobster pasta special, which was overpowerd by too much lemon and garlic, I may have even lost my sense of taste for the next few days.
My wife had the lamb gnocci, which was overcooked, gnocci was mush.
Food was way overpriced.

Sat on the patio. Just a little bit cool. My shawl did the trick! Had the Barramundi and the lamb gnocchi as main courses. They were fantastic. Also had the clam chowder to start An unusual preparation. A little heavy on the potato and a little light on the clam. Nota creamy chowder but unusual combination of flavors Very tasty. Also tried a bite of the jumbo crab cake. Excellent! Had the Abaco cocktail. Super yummy, if slightly lethal. Had to try the creme brûlée. Very good. Consistency more like a pudding than a flan. Service was everything you want it to be- attentive without being intrusive, very friendly and professional.

The Cork is very professionally run, from the service, to the food, to the ambiance. Everything was great, with two exceptions. Our salads had barely been served when our entrees arrived. It was way too fast, so we sent them back. This was my husband’s birthday celebration and we didn’t want to rush. To Cork’s credit, when the dinners reappeared, they were fresh and didn’t appear reheated. The other complaint I have is that the prices for wine are exorbitant. I recognize this is a significant profit center, but there’s a limit to how much even the most well heeled client is willing to get ripped off.

We had Sunday morning brunch and it was fabulous! Sat out on the patio and enjoyed the sunshine, drank Bloody Mary’s and boozy iced coffees (both a little pricey), and indulged in delicious food. The hash browns we received were cold, but the Crab Benedict was mouthwatering. It’s definitely great and I highly recommend!
