Very quiet outdoors on a Sunday evening.
Wonderful food. Crispy Artichokes was my favorite.
Good COVID place if you stay away from bar area.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. Overall everything was great. Staff was friendly, sangria was amazing, and the octopus was flavorful and tasty. It was a bit pricy for such small portions, but it was quality and you can tell the chefs care!

What a fun place and lots of outdoor seating. Felt like I was in Barcelona eating Paella and drinking Sangria. Started off with the tapas of ribs (yummy), artichokes (yum), calamari (standard as you would get but still good). No rushing of us and brought a birthday desert out for our daughter. This is a definite redo and btw, thanks for seating us before you all opened. That told us the experience we were about to have. GREAT JOB!!!!

This was the first time my husband and I dined here. We requested outdoor seating. I had seen that there were heaters so I was ok with sitting outside on a cool brisk night. We were seated in some outdoor area that wasn’t really part of the restaurant. When we asked our waiter to move one of the heaters over to us, he said he couldn’t. They were bolted down and could not be moved over to where we were seated.
I was quite annoyed because I had requested outdoor seating thinking I’d be close to the heaters, if necessary. My husband and I were uncomfortably cold.
Yes, I did dress appropriately. I had a down vest on and my husband had a sweater and a light jacket.
We decided it probably would be the last time we would sit outdoors for a while.
Otherwise, the food and service were quite good.

Lovely restaurant with wonderful ambiance! Food was great and good wine list. Service was very slow!! Waiters were very inattentive. Took almost an hour to get our food and waiter was unapologetic. Maybe didn’t have enough staff and waiters were overwhelmed. We will try it again to give it another chance.

A wonderful outdoors dining experience, for me, my wife, 13 yr old daughter and my 92 yr old Mom! We’ve been frequent diners and fans of this restaurant for several years. Coming out of a (thankfully temporary) pandemic closure, they’ve created a terrific outdoor patio dining experience, which spills into an extended area of (covered) common area at the Prado. Blending customers from another, adjoining Prado restaurant, this makes for a festive, sidewalk dining atmosphere.

We love the tapas format of the menu, along with the option of getting larger entree. If there’s any downside, the ‘Mediterranean’ theme of the menu may sound like light food, when many of the dishes are on the heavy ‘meaty, cheesy & saucy’ side. But they also have a variety of tasty salads, olives & almonds and some veggie dishes. And we have to give a huge shout out to their ‘Friday night music on the patio’ program. Last week they had guitarist David Pippin, who is unbelievably fabulous ... Worth going to see, even if the food, service and atmosphere weren’t so great ..
Which they were.

Hello again Mr Kim. Please accept our apologies again and know that every effort was attempted to correct the mistakes that were made while you were here. The chef has retrained the Paella cook to pay attention to the care and condition of the product as well as the efficiency of cook times. Your server has also been counseled to pay better attention to what he is entering into the system and to double check the bill before giving it to the guest. Thank you for dining with us and be safe.

Cool joint with friendly staff. Sat at the bar for a few while waiting for a table. Kaitlyn was tending and she was fun to talk to. Listened to live music on the patio while we ate. All tapas for us but there are some entrees. Fun night.

This was my first visit to Under the Cork Tree, and it was great. We sat outside because of COVID, and the outdoor area is perfect. The indoor ambience looks great too. Food & drinks were all delicious, especially the flash fried artichokes and the Manhattan I started with. Service was also excellent!

Busy place on a labor day weekend (Sat). Reservations were a little behind for outside dining. Inside there were plenty of tables. After 9 pm they were out of 3 choices wife & I made. No harm, no foul as that presented a chance to try dishes not normally chosen. Small plates of ribs, chicken skewers & scallops w fettuccini were served with a 1/2 chicken entree for our daughter. All were excellent. Especially enjoyed live music by Amanda Belair. All in all good service, good food & fair prices.

This was a mixed and puzzling dining experience. We were originally seated at the worse table in the restaurant with no apology offered and had to ask for a reseating to improve our situation. I would suggest this to be a fine place to dine for a variety of Spain-themed tapas, small plates, Mediterranean steak influenced cuisines with good varieties of seafood and grilled meats. The ambience is festive and energetic suitable for order families and friends’ get-together.

The service was candidly unevenly delivered, inattentive and inconsistent with large unexplainable gaps between visits by our waiter departing from the usual dining ritual or cadence. On two separate occasions, 30-minute elapsed between visits by our waiter in a fairly intimate arrangement of tables. It was compounded as we watched our waiter tend to other tables around us with multiple visits in between ours. We may return based on the quality of the food but poor service was offered.
