I was there for lunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We both ordered the salmon naan. It was delicious! The outdoor dining space was lovely and the heaters kept us comfortable even though it was a chilly afternoon.

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!

Everything was quite pleasant and the food was good. However, you might want to consider teaching the bus boys to spray the cloth instead of The table when cleaning. From my view, I saw the mist of spray reach several feet to other customers eating at a different table.

My husband & I were visiting Erie for a weekend getaway. We passed The Cork on our way to Presque Isle and said we must try it out before we left. We were not disappointed!! The food was excellent (some of the best we ever had) as well as the service. Trey was our waiter and was super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area!!

Always the best experience when dining at The Cork. I called before coming and asked for the AMAZING Ken to have our table outside with extra space with my immunodeficiency and he delivered as always! The Cork honestly goes above and beyond with all their precautions and is why I feel so comfortable going, The food is by far the best in Erie I’ve been coming every month since they opened and I always get the filet mignon. It’s seasoned to absolute perfection every time and melts in your mouth. I love that you can pick your side dishes now and they are all so delicious especially the asparagus! The Cork has always been family to us Diana, Ken and Krista are my fab 3 but everyone is so incredible and I even got to say hi to the Lewis family who are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Erie is so fortunate to have The Cork. The ambiance, the wonderful staff, the food, and presentation of the food would put the Cork above any restaurant!
