The musician was excellent; he played 80's and 90's hits at a level that allowed us to still hold a conversation. The food was delicious--we selected several small plates to share and it was perfect paired with a bottle of wine. Our server, Jenna, was attentive and personable. She did an amazing job. The owner stopped by our table twice to ensure everything was perfect. We will definitely be back!

She even remembered us from the last time we were there and that made us feel very welcome. She even knew what we had ordered, and it had been a while since we were last there. Definitely left a lasting impression.

We had a reservation at 6:15, arrived 15 minutes early, and were seated promptly. I had the filet mignon (with scalloped potatoes and asparagus) after a Caesar salad, and my friend had corned beef and cabbage after a Caesar salad. Delicious and very good portions. For dessert, we each ate different flavors of their home-made ice cream. Also delicious. Our server was friendly and efficient. Although the restaurant specializes in wine and offers an extensive wine list, neither of us ordered wine, so these comments relate to the excellent food. My friend did have a vodka with a spot of cranberry juice. The bill, before tip, was around $93, so a decent value for the high quality food. I definitely will return. It was a 5-star experience.

So glad you enjoyed brunch and appreciated the menu and its uniqueness. Since this was your first visit, you might want to try us out for dinner as well. We have a fantastic and equally unique dinner menu and offer live music on Friday nights. We so appreciate you taking the time to write a review. I will pass your comments on to Taryn!

When food came out. Waffle ( of which was a$4.00 up charge). Was over cooked (it was dark brown in color) and cold. Not even the butter would melt. Eggs were runny and not completely cooked. Scrapple came out 5 min after food arrived and was burnt around the edges. Reuben —the corned beef was so thick and tough had to be taken off the sandwich and had to cut with knife and fork. The cheese was not melted and very very little sauerkraut. Someone needs to get a lesson on how to make a Reuben. Worse Reuben I’ve ever eaten Very very disappointing experience as we drove as ways to get here as reviews were good. Apparently not this past Sunday!

First and foremost if you are ever unhappy with the food that is delivered, you should immediately let your server know so that we may recook or compensate you for your food that was not prepared correctly. There should not have been a $4 up charge for the waffle an our Reuben is said to be one of the best, so that is extremely disappointing to hear.

What we had hoped to be an enjoyable evening dining out was anything but. With 7 o’clock reservations, we arrived 5 minutes early and were promptly seated. It was 20 minutes before I got my drink, and one hour and five minutes before our appetizers came out. (I had to ask the server to please be sure that we did not get the appetizers and the entrée at the same time.) I know that the kitchen and the serving staff can get overwhelmed, but this was beyond acceptable. When the food came out, it was good; the rockfish was hot and tasty, but the rice and green beans were both tepid at best. Adding insult to injury, when we got our bill, we were charged for a glass of wine that we never ordered. (My wife had club soda; I had an old-fashioned with Basil-Hayden.) The server quizzed us as to whether we were sure we did not get the wine before she did remember that it was not ours, it belonged to another table. Our server seemed to be apologizing to a number of tables, including ours, during our stay. We will not be returning to the Cork County Wine Bar.

Nothing makes us happy than to receive such positive comments. Glad to hear you enjoyed brunch, maybe next time visit for dinner. On Friday nights we have live music from local musicians which makes The Cork really hopping on the weekends. Thank you again for taking the time to write such a nice review.

I was aware of the situation and apologized to the few guests that had to wait that evening. I made sure your server was proactive on getting your food in and out asap. Music started at 8:30 so hopefully you were able to enjoy the music with your dinner. There are a few occasions when it is out of our control, but we do our very best to stay on top of the situation.

Booked a table for 7pm as it was a Friday night and we figured it might be busy. Arrived at about 7:05, no hostess in sight, just a bunch of people standing around near the door waiting. Hostess appeared after a few minutes but didn’t greet or acknowledge us. As she went to walk away, I interjected and said that we had a reservation and gave my name. She looked at her tablet, said ‘OK’, and walked away. Didn’t reappear for at least 10 minutes. When she came back, she asked to reach past us to pick up something from a table. She was about to walk away a second time without greeting or talking to us. So I asked if she knew how long we could expect to wait. She indicated a table that was just being vacated and said “That’s for you as soon as it’s cleaned off”. Cleaning it took another several minutes and we finally sat down at 7:30. Unfortunately, there was no wine list among the various pieces of menu and it was another 10 minutes before our waitress arrived to greet us. She came back a few minutes later with a wine list. We ordered as soon as she came back a second time, and then waited again. It was about 8:10 before 2 glasses of wine finally appeared, over an hour from when we walked in with a table supposedly reserved. The sad thing is that at no point during any of this did anyone apologize for things taking a long time. They were clearly understaffed - 2 or 3 servers for the whole place - and it was a busy Friday night. So it’s understandable that things might take a while, but when no one acknowledges that it feels like it’s OK for it to take over an hour just to get a glass of wine in a ‘wine pub’. The food was OK, but both our entrees were quite salty tasting and it was almost 8:30 before they arrived. Just a disappointing experience, which was a shame. A few small changes could have left us wanting to give it another try on a different night.

I seriously try to keep our prices in line, and appreciate your comments. With everything associated with running the restaurant has increased, I had no choice but to raise prices slightly. I encourage coupon use (and I would do the same), every little bit helps! Always ask for the owner if you aren't receiving top notch service! You deserve the best when dining out and we always want to know when we fall short.

It is often one or two musicians playing acoustic guitars and usually classic rock is played. We start the music around 8:30-9:00 so as to not disturb the majority of diners. If we are still busy with a dinner crowd, I may start the music a little later and they will play til midnight or after.
