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!!!!
Great food and a really nice environment to sit outside and enjoy the weather
The food was amazing and great service !!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome as usual. The paella was on point. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
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.
Will go back again soon.
Very nice place; the food is great, the tapas were fantastic and the services outstanding!
Great first date place. Sat on the patio! Highly recommend
A real gem in Sandy Springs with aunique Mediterranean- and Spanish-influenced menu and a limited but excellent wine list!
The scallops were the best. The grilled cheese and sliced apples was a great palate pleaser too.
The food was good, the portions were good as well, the service was excellent, easy parking, would return.
A lovely socially distance meal outside on the patio with my friend.
Nice spot for some outdoor dining. Excellent service.
Great waiter but thats about it. Most of the kitchen not wearing masks. Food doesnt have much flavor.
Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to tell us about your concerns. According to the Ga Dept of Health and the CDC restaurant guidelines persons not in contact with or communicating with guests are not required to wear masks. However, the entire kitchen staff with the exceptions of our executive chef and sous chef wear masks. The chefs are required to taste menu items and drop their masks when doing so. I will pass along your concerns to both of them.
Excellent food & wonderful staff. Top notch with a relaxed environment.
Service was a little slow, but otherwise a good experience.
The service and menu guidance were wonderful, just as expected!
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.
Beautiful place! Great food!
Found bug inside the food ...
Took forever to get our order in
Messed up our bill by including wrong wine
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.
They seem to have adjusted well to this pandemic environment.
Overall good food, but the service was rushed / inattentive.
Great atmosphere, good eats and options on the menu
Loved this place! The food, the service and the ambience were all impeccable! There was even live music on the patio which really added a nice touch. I can see why you were voted the #1 patio in Atlanta. It was a perfect night and we will be back soon!
Seafood was overcooked and service was very minimal. Flavors of dishes were good, but octopus and shrimp (in paella) were tough
Great food, nice servers, ate outside and there was sufficient distance between tables. No temperature check, which was alarming, but all servers wore masks.
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!
Thank you so much for your review and we are happy to be open and serve you in a safe environment. Can't wait to see you again soon.
The food was amazing. The service was amazing too. I highly recommend! Best steak and eggs ever for brunch!
Thank you so much for your great review.
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.
New menu is not as good. Disappointed. Selection poor. No fish entree. Several previous good small plates now off the menu. Previous favorites gone.
Love this place! The food is always delicious. The patio tables were spaced and we felt very comfortable.
Birthday on the patio! Great food and ambiance.
First time. Food was excellent! Wait staff was prompt and very nice. Look forward to dining there again!
This was our first time here and we REALLY enjoyed it. The drinks were good, the paella was outstanding. Some of the outside dining area was a little crowded for COVID spacing, but the spot we were in was farther apart from other tables.
Thank you so much for your great review. We hope to see you again soon!
We were impressed! The food was delicious, the service was excellent and we felt really safe/comfortable with our safety and social distancing while there. Although we chose to eat indoors, their really nice patio had its share of diners. Absolutely we will return.
