Some food was good and some was plain bad. Sole was undercooked. Escargot was good. Risotto was flavorless which was shocking. Chicken skewers were SO fatty that I ate half fat and half chicken and the pasta cacio e Pepe was decent.

My husband and I had a great dinner. We ate a variety of tapas that were delicious. The carrots, the ribs and my favorite- the burrata & prosciutto with little delicious melon balls soaked in a champagne vinaigrette. Oh yum! And we ended with a toffee cake that would be worth a visit just by itself. We ended up sitting indoors with the lovely air conditioning, although most of the customers were outside on their shaded patio. Absolutely recommend it!

Charlaron was an excellent host and walked us through the menu. The various tapas were served piping hot and arrived quickly for how busy the place was. The food was delicious, drinks were great and the service was top notch. I will definitely be adding Under the Cork Tree to my Atlanta restaurant rotation!

I had reservations at 830 for an outdoor table, we waited 30 minutes and had to sit inside. It was loud inside and we sat in a couch that was uncomfortable. The hostess wasn’t very helpful or understanding at all! I was very disappointed since this wasn’t our first time at this establishment.

The food was amazing as always and the waitress was also amazing!

It was very loud and the tables were extremely small. We tried to have a conversation and the people next to us started making suggestions on the menu, it definitely wasn’t what I expected for something that was on the more expensive end.

I will first say that we will go back but, it didn’t start out great. We had an 8:00 reservation and weren’t seated until 8:45. Very disappointing. The experience after that made up for it. The service was great, the food was really good and the atmosphere was relaxing. The manger did acknowledge the inconvenience and we were given some complimentary apps. Our server was great and the food came out quickly.

Our waiter did not wear a mask. I am not listing this as a minus point, just for anyone who cares to know.

This was second tome eating at Under the Cork Tree. The first time was incredible in every way, but this time it was subpar. Service wasn’t that good and had to wait to order drinks, etc. the food wasn’t near as good and the hurrays, which I had before, had half the amount of arugula and strawberries. We are on the patio at 8:30pm and for a Saturday I expected the restaurant to be packed - it was half full which isn’t a good sign. I bragged about the restaurant and was a little embarrassed and let down. They need to up their game.

Amazing food. Horrible service. No one came to our table, so we finally asked a bus person if he could take our order. Server came over and apologized, but it set the stage for the night. Everything was slow, requests were forgotten SBD we were treated as an afterthought. The food, however, was amazing.

Thank you! We are aware of service issues due to the lack of staff. We are actively looking for more servers to lessen the amount of tables our servers have to take at one time. Thank you for your patience during these hard times.

I came with a small group of friends and we had a reserved table on the patio. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. The waiter was excellent! He was attentive, explained and presented the food and beverage choices well, and was very accommodating as some of us had specific requests. The food was delicious and abundant. Drinks were excellent as well. Our group loved it and is going back soon.

I dined at UTCT with a party of five and Chris, (also the bartender), was our server.
Let me tell you, this guy can multi-task with the best of 'em. He was on top of everything from our drink requests, to menu questions, and even listened to our everyday jibber-jabber but didn't let it slow him down.
The food was delicious and good quality.
Our group ordered the following tapas:
Pork ribs, albondigas, lamb, salmon croquettes, hanger steak, dates, cacio e pepe, and escargot. Next time I will pass on the pork ribs; they were dry and over-cooked but everything else was phenomenal.
We had the churros and date cake for dessert. Date cake is hands down the best dessert I've ever had in my life. GET IT.....you will not regret it.

Great food but understaffed, as other places these days.
We had a reservation for an outdoor table, but the hostess had to go clean one up before we could be seated. We drank our water for 10 minutes before the server came to take our order. The food was very good, but one plate was missing, our server assured it was coming as we checked, when we checked again, she said another server had brought it but it was cancelled, so we suspect it was brought to the wrong table... It was remade by the kitchen, and finally showed up and they took it off the check.

We just love tapas here. The grilled octopus is fantastic and the chicken skewers are so yummy. Mussels, delish. Patatas bravas, great. We’ve never had a bad meal here. Super-friendly servers, too.

A couple years after we 1st wanted to go here, I was very happy with everything ordered and with our server. We'll gladly come back soon. Only negative was the table outside the normal space, essentially among hoards of others waiting to get into adjacent restaurants. We'll be sure to get a closer spot next time.

Overall the food was very good. Octopus a la plancha was incredible and short ribs, bone marrow and bravas were all very good. Paella was average - socarrat was mostly burnt, not properly executed. Service was very poor, barely saw our waiter all night, I had to flag him down any time we needed something and he never even gave us silverware, had to find another staffer to get us some. The waiter and hostess were not very friendly or welcoming either. Even though we really liked the food, based on the overall experience probably wouldn’t go back.

Great time with a friend and the service was terrific but the food was very poor. We ordered 4-5 tapas and I believe the only thing we liked the Parmesan pasta. I wouldn’t recommend or come back but appreciative of the service
