Our family of 4 (kids 10 &13) enjoyed our evening. The food is a bit rich for the kids but between a few meals and appetizers we pieced together enough for both of them without compromising what we like for dinner. The service is always excellent and there is always something new and interesting on the menu!

I enjoy the atmosphere and service. I am not too fond of the food and preparation. The salads are saturated with too much dressing and the foods are cooked in an oil that is not desirable. I stick with the cheese board, appetizers and wine, then sit back and relax for the evening.

Arrived early and sat at the bar to have a drink. Drinks were good. We sat at a hightop next to the bar. All of the menu selections looked delicious. My wife ordered the leg of lamb and I had the pork porterhouse with a side Cesar salad. We ordered a boudin for an appetizer. The salad came first. The salad was good. The appetizer came next and it was ok. The entrees came out after what felt to be a long time. The lamb was terrible. It was like chewing leather. Over cooked and appeared to have freezer burn. Very dry. The pork as ordered medium rare but was cooked well done. I don't understand why they ask how you want your food cooked if they don't accommodate. Seasoning was ok but dried out due to being over cooked. We were both very excited to find this place as the menu looked wonderful but we were very let down by the food. I would go back for the bar but I would not order food there again.

We typically have great service but were surprised this past time to find that our server charged us twice for an appetizer. We asked for veggies because we needed it gluten free and ordered dinner as GF as well. When the app came out, we saw breadcrumbs on it. We notified the server and she said well I’ll split that mistake with you and she said I’ll be right out. She said although we said veggies for gluten free, we didn’t specifically order the app gluten free so that it didn’t count... when we got our bill, we were charged twice— once for the app she left with us and once for the app correctly as we intended ordered it. We typically have great service so perhaps she was having a bad night but I was rather disappointed when I got the bill. She told us we’d split the difference... but we were charged for both. I’m not sure what that means but I don’t believe it’s good business practice. It’ll be a while before we’re back even if this was an occasional mistake.

This was my first time here. We were sat at our table right away. It wasn’t very busy, out reservation was 6:45, so we missed the happy hour crowd.
Our waitress was great! Super friendly and very attentive. She answered our questions regarding the menu and made our evening special!
The food was good. We started with the Thai shrimp appetizer, delicious!
I ordered the short rib as my entree and my fiancé ordered the filet mignon. Both were good!
Overall, we enjoyed our evening here and would definitely come back!

The service is excellent! Very attentive waitress for every move! Appetizers, cheese board, salads and wine are my favorite thing to do at the Cork. I don't eat the entrees 'cause I don't care for the oils they use to cook with.

I should have sent my meal back, leg of lamb. I was told the lamb would be prepared medium. The piece of lamb I received resembled shoe leather, tough and slim.
I would recommend sandwiches. I have been here before and my sandwich was good.
Our server was quite good except for her information about the lamb.
Martinis are weak, which was fine for us.

We have been here before but decided to go for Howard County restaurant week after looking at the menu. It did not disappoint. The kitchen knocked it out of the park, in fact. Grateful mix of flavors. The gazpacho was the biggest surprise since neither of us could imagine a sorbet pairing but it was incredible. The sorbet added a unique flavor profile. It complimented the garlic in a most delightful way. Don't miss this dish.

Our server, Melanie, was equally outstanding. Her timing of courses was right on point. She was always refreshing the water without us having to ask (a personal pet peeve of mine). Super friendly and genuine. A rare quality found in the service industry these days. Highly recommend checking out The Cork.

This was our first time and what pleasant surprise so close to home. The food was well conceived and well presented. There was a nice array of small and large dishes, and the 3 Small’s we had were enough for a light dinner. The Thai shrimp stood out, with the squash risotto cream and almost delicate. Attentive service complimented the evening

Mother’s Day: The service was great, as the waitress was very nice. My mother-in-law and wife’s food came out wrong, the potatoes were drenched in old bay (I understand Marylanders love old bay, but I literally had a hard time eating them). The owner/manager was extremely apologetic and compensated us. Perhaps we will try this place again, as it received such great reviews, but just not on such a busy occasion.

This is not a bargain restaurant but worth every penny. The down to earth atmosphere and ambiance complements the out of this world food. Over a course of several dinners, paired tastings, and a brunch, all of the food was excellent to outstanding. Cocktails are great, including several interesting martinis, and the wine list is another excellent feature of this little restaurant with a big personality.
In addition, there are several specials and events every month that are detailed on the website. I highly, highly recommend this restaurant for a special experience.
