My wife's second visit here and my first. WOW. We love tapas, so went that route. Tried maybe 8 dishes.. to a fault they were all incredible. It's great to see a place do some unique things, and not just get very good versions of common fare. Service was on point- helpful, generous, attentive (mostly... waters weren't' filled regularly and we had to hunt down our server to order dessert). Wine list was pretty good, though I'd prefer to see more Spanish and S. American offerings and fewer CA ones... since they are spanish-oriented.

Order the paella. Server told us it would take 30 mins to cook. Literally took over a hour. We had a reservation at 5:15 literally by 6:30 we still didn’t have any food. The manager seemed like hmm whatever about it. Just like I took one of them off so that’s good enough. Like no it’s not. I would have gladly paid for both entrees. I feel like it was a breakdown in communication. Our server even alluded to the fact that the kitchen messed up the dish. This was only brought to our attention after we complained about how long our food was taking. We ended up having to take our food to go. Extremely disappointing experience.

i was really looking forward for both pizza (since our waiter said the best Napoleon pizza ever--but it was OK) and Seafood Tagliatelle. The Seafood Tagliatelle sauce tasted like tomato paste and noodle weren't that great but the shrimps and scallop in that dish were cooked to perfection. The hummus was layered super thin to the bowl and serve with one bread...but loved the crunchy chickpeas on top, though.

Excellent restaurant, from reservations online to service, to menu, quality, variety and mouth watering dishes! We had the tapas crispy artichokes, roasted beets, dates, Gypsy salad, plus two other salads, and mixed grill for a table of four. More than enough food and mouth watering delicious! I would definitely recommend!

The food was delicious as usual. Service was a little slow due it being busy on Valentine’s but it was still decent. I was chilly as there was a draft by the windows. I ended up wearing my winter coat through dinner.

This was my first time at a tapas restaurant and I loved it! Excellent food, although I wish there would have been more gluten-free choices. Service was good - not great. We enjoyed the fish tapas with capers and the desserts were very tasty.

We went because they showed up on several gluten free sites as having many gluten free options. They didn’t and the food was mediocre at best. Plenty of great restaurants in Atlanta.

We have always had such a great experience at Under the Cork Tree which was the reason why we wanted to celebrate my fiancé's new job here! However, it was awful and such a disappointment. 1. We made a reservation and when we arrived on time, they said for dining room seating it would be 30 min even with a reservation and that we could sit in the "bar seating". Now, I understand things happen but when you make a reservation I would never think I would have to wait an additional 30 minutes. Not to mention the hostess was extremely rude 2. The service was less than desirable, not once was our water filled or did the waiter ask if we wanted another drink. Positive- he was very nice and helpful 3. Our waiter switched half way through dinner but it was like there was no communication that we still were a table that needed assistance. Overall, disappointing way to celebrate and I'm not sure if we will be back to a place we always loved .

Our party of 12 enjoyed a lovely evening in their private room with glass walls lined with bottles of wine. We arrived early in the evening and our server was excellent. Their ipad wine list is fabulous! Starters of pan con tomato with jamon, along with bacon wrapped dates were perfect. As the restaurant began to fill, our server had more tables than he could handle. One in our group did not receive her entree until others had finished, but they did remove that charge from our total. Other excellent selections included the empanadas and the date cake. I would definitely return and would host a small group in the lovely wine room!

Under the Cork Tree is one of our favorite restaurants, but this is the first time we have been for the Sunday Brunch. We were very pleased as always! The brunch buffet was quite creative and unique — a pleasant alternative to the tired hotel brunch scene. The mix of Mediterranean offerings, breakfast entrees, pizza, and desserts made for a great and memorable brunch.
