Try our new, romantic outdoor patio! Once you enter through the garden gate, you will feel safe and relaxed. A mural wall by graffiti artist iSurge, lush tropical greenery and an herb garden helps set the mood! Recipients of consecutive Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence since opening for 8 years straight, and a DiRona Fine Dining Award recipient since 2016. The menu is based on comfort food with global influences. Everything served is prepared from scratch, from cured and smoked meats, charcuterie, pastas and gelato.
The menu changes slightly with every season, and the wine, sake, and beer list is always evolving and growing.
The Cook and The Cork does not want to be considered fine-dining, but we take food and drink seriously. Our goal is to have all our guests be a part of the fun, and to share the love we have for the restaurant, food, and staff. Private and large parties accommodated, please contact directly: res@thecookandcork.com or call 954-227-2665

    The Food was actually very tasty and on time. My issue was with the service by the two waiters in the room. they were very rude and completely uninterested in serving our party of four. The girl (busgirl) was excellent kind of trying tp make up for the terrible service the waiters gave us.

    Everything was delicious!!! We went earlier in the evening so there wasn't much of a crowd, and the noise level was low enough to have comfortable conversation. The staff were all very friendly, the restaurant was nice and clean. We will definitely return another night to try out the happy hour!

    Will say straight up - will go back. Service was great. Mussels were very good. House- made chips and onion dip were enjoyable but very salty. Having had authentic Korean fried chicken, was a little disappointed by this entree...not because it wasn’t good fried chicken (it was excellent - crunchy outside and very juicy inside), but it was essentially southern fried chicken with a Korean dipping sauce. And also while delicious a little too salty for me. Fixings (wasabi mashed potatoes, slaw and kimchi zucchini) were good. So if I had been aiming for southern fried chicken I would have been very satisfied. Overall very enjoyable experience and like I said, we recommend and will return.

    Served entrees at staggering times to our table, not everyone served at the same time. We only had 5 people in our group. Waiter was chatting a lot with other employees and not super attentive. Cute place, good food but probably not worth the overall price.

    The hostess was rude. When we checked in for our reservation she said we reserved an outdoor table but it was going to rain and indoor had an hour wait. We checked the weather and it seemed fine for the next hour or so, so we told her that we’d take the outdoor table. She seemed bothered about it as she had to go clean it. She sat us outside and then didn’t tell anyone we were there. We waited outside for over ten minutes, then I had to call the restaurant to remind her and she came outside and basically slammed our plates and utensils on the table. Shortly after a server came out and apologized. Food was good and our server was great. It was our first time dining at this restaurant and we wanted to love it but I don’t think we’ll return.

    We planned to meet friends at The Cook and Cork to enjoy dinner on its patio, but the weather was not with us. With impending rain, the hostess quickly found an inside table for our party of four. Despite the noise of a full, small restaurant, we had a lovely time at The Cook and Cork, from our entrees, particularly my short ribs, to an excellent bottle of wine. The server was attentive without bothering us too much — a real pro. It’s nice to experience a restaurant that puts forth a real effort to please its guests.

    For our drinks we both opted for the Red Sangria which Jordan advised us was made with a touch of cinnamon. This was a first for both of us and yes, was it delicious! It kind a transformed the Sangria into an apple pie. For our starters we ordered the PEI Mussels that are made with fine herbs, garlic, white wine the marriage of flavors was out of this world. The cakes were loaded with chunks of shrimp and crawfish. One bite was better than the next and the serving sizes on both dishes were incredible. For our entrées Doris opted for the Tamari-Honey Glazed Short Rib that is served over Wasabi Mashed Potatoes and accompanied with Cranberry Mostarda. The meat was melt in your mouth tender and the explosion of flavors that was just as good if not better than appetizers. “Mmmm yummmm, from now on I absolutely must have my mashed potatoes made Wasabi style, please.” Was a direct quote from Doris. I on the other hand was torn between the KFC (KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN) and the Special Pork Schnitzel. I asked Jordan to surprise me and make the choice. So, Pork Schnitzel it was and boy was it delicious! Served with Braised Purple Cabbage, Potato Dumplings and an Apple Demi you could not conceive a better pairing of flavors and textures. Thank you for the great choice Jordan. After reviewing the dessert selection we went right back to Jordan for his recommendations the Double Chocolate Brownies and the Blueberry Cobbler both a la mode. I hate to repeat myself but I have to. DELICIOUS!!! The wine list is sure to fit most tastes. As their name implies, wine plays a big part. They “present all the great wine producing regions, plus the under-marketed wine-producing areas of the world. They also boast an extensive Saké collection.

    I took my mother there for her birthday dinner, she ordered the prime NY Strip, " med rare on the rare side", it was med, the roasted potatoes and zucchini we ordered didn't come until half way thru the meal. The mashed potatoes with the other meals was lukewarm. Oh and we had to pour our own wine, which doesn't typically bother me that much but thought I'd mention since I am so disappointed. There were only 3 other tables that were leaving when we ordered, you think they could have gotten it right with only one table in the restaurant to serve.

    We had an amazing nite at The Cook and The Cork. We had a reservation for the garden outside. A beautiful nite for dining. We were immediately given water and asked for our drink orders. We had many small plates of wonderful things to try. The short ribs egg rolls were so good we got another order. The antipasto was delicious as was the Mexican corn salad. Also tasty was the octopus salad. Our white sangrias were filled with fruit. For dessert we had brownie and ice cream with a candle. The wait staff were all very nice and attentive. We can’t wait to go back.

    Perfect date night restaurant! An interesting, eclectic menu and just a small amount of tables in this quaint restaurant. I’d recommend ordering a small handful of their appetizers and small plates to share so you can try lots of the flavors they have to offer. Everything we ordered was excellent, we’ll definitely be back.

    Had heard many good things about The Cook and the Cork and thought I would check it out. Restaurant only serves beer, wine and sake which surprised me. Ambience was akin to an Irish bar and service was average. Was hoping the food would be the super star and it did not reach that level - average at best. We had the bacon wrapped dates and shrimp and scallop fried wontons which were good. We also had the octopus small plate and that dish was underwhelming. For my main dish, I had the duck confit which came with two duck legs. That seemed odd as normally, as a standard. this dish comes with one duck leg, but this one had two. The duck legs resembled chicken legs but were flavorful. The dish was average but at a price of $33, I expected something more. The star of the show was the vanilla crème brûlée we ended the night with, it was extremely flavorful. I will be back to give them another try as I really want to love this place.
