    We were celebrating a Birthday, and sat in a booth by the window with the beautiful view of the water feature and golf course. We had Wild Mushroom Benedict and the Avocado Toast with Smashed Potatoes. Absolutely delicious food, and excellent service. It was a perfect day of friendship.

    What a wonderful evening with my amazing family. It started with Christine finding the perfect time for us to dine. After trying several upscale eateries and being unable to secure a reservation, she took the time to help us. When we arrived we waited maybe 10 minutes max before we were seated. Our table was located in the perfect location which was wonderful for a very rambunctious toddler. Our server was extremely knowledgeable on the menu, answering all our questions as well as making wonderful recommendations. We started with the octopus tacos, hummus and stuffed squash blossom. They were all exceptional. Drinks were absolutely delicious as well. Our entrees were just as wonderful. The diver scallops, cheeseburger, fish and chips, braised short rib and steak were all hits. Added the cast iron Brussel sprouts, brocollini and iceberg lettuce wedges. All the food was perfectly prepared, and portions were perfect. In fact we brought home some food to enjoy today. Everyone was so patient, knowledgeable and responsive. We highly recommend going here. We will definitely be back.

    Cork Fire Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants but this Valentine's Day dinner fell short of their lofty standard in my view. This special event included an overly limited menu and the food just didn't meet expectations.

    Nice atmosphere, although quite chilly inside, kept jacket on most of the time. The food was very tasty, but portions were on the lighter side. I was surprised at how expensive I found it, for the quality of the food, to be honest..

    This was our second time to Cork Fire and once again, we had a great time. A few highlights below: Food quality: Very filling portions. I could actually taste the fish in my fish & chips! We also splurged on the bread pudding for dessert, which is more than enough for 4 people to share, and were very happy with our choice. Drink selection is solid with all types of alcohol available. I was feeling a beer but was a bit sad I didn't go for a cocktail instead after our server delivered my wife's drink. Guess we'll just need to visit again! Superb overall. Service: Very friendly and accommodating. A tiny bit slow this particular evening, but I did notice that they had an event going on in one of the banquet rooms, and there were also two large parties sitting in the dining room. Definitely not a major issue as we had nowhere to be and were perfectly fine just sipping our drinks patiently. Ambiance: Beautiful woodsy room with high ceilings and lodge-esque decor. You'll definitely feel like you're going to summer camp as you pull in to the parking lot. One wall has floor-to-ceiling glass to overlook the surrounding area, so there's a lovely view as well. Cork Fire's menu rotates fairly often, so also a good excuse to visit multiple times. Check them out ASAP!

    We were so disappointed in our dinner. We had had brunch here about 2 months ago and it was wonderful! Service was really slow - took 30 minutes to get drinks. Then they seemed to be out of a lot of stuff. Had to pick 3 bottles of wine before we found one in stock. Food was cold when we got it and super average in taste.

    Loved the food and service. However, we might as well have sat in the bar. The noise level made it impossible to converse across the table. In addition, the few dessert options made it impossible to celebrate the birthday. There also was no view outside. A lot of people eating in a small area.

    It was our first time there, and we will definitely be back! Our server LB was amazing. The food was so good. I had the coddled eggs and while the flavor was awesome, the texture just wasn’t for me. Not the restaurants fault at all, just beware if runny egg white texture isn’t your fave. We ordered French toast too which was phenomenal. It was so comfy and tons of natural light. Even with the dining room full it was nice and quiet. My only complaint was the parking situation. We were a few minutes late to our reservation because the parking was so full we had to wait for people to leave.

    I came to Cork Fire with a friend on our last day in Temecula. We wanted brunch and their menu looked really good (it was). I ordered the hummus and asked that it come out first, and then our entrees after. I know it wasn’t intentional, but the timing of our meal was way off. The hummus came out quickly, but we waited almost an additional hour for our entrees to arrive. We watched every table around us receive their food before we did, even though they arrived after us. I just think the communication with the kitchen was off and that’s why our food came out so late. The servers were super nice though. I’d like to come back to try their dinner menu.

    The service was outstanding; however, the food (dinner entrees) wasn’t great. It is a restaurant, so the low star rating is based on the food itself. It was lukewarm and bland. We loved the ambience so will give it another try, but likely just for drinks and an appetizer.
