My wife and I went here on a Friday night and it was odd that when we got there the dinning room was deserted. We had already decided to eat outside, so when we got to our table we figured out why no one was inside. The patio is great with beautiful trees and flowers. The menu is somewhat limited,... More

If you are into fine dining, I guess this place is for you. I just can't quite stand spending that much money on a meal, since I grow a lot of my own veges and can make a mean sauce or two. But the atmosphere, the flexibility of the environment (e.g., you can take your glass of wine out to... More

Dine on the patio if you can. Terrific soups, salads, charcuterie, creative main courses. The new chef does pork particularly well. Five bucks for a few slices of bread is a bit much, even if it is locally produced, they need to get over that. And the Russian River Vineyards reds are on the delicate side for our palates... order... More

We arrived 10minutes after closing and they still took us with smiles and welcome. Great atmosphere, wonderful food, and fun people.

Five stars (at least 4.5!) for the evening patio ambiance, which included live music last Friday, and the food. The burrata with apricots and honey was a delicious starter and my scallops were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Had a peach cherry cobbler for dessert that was also exceptional. My husband had the beef short rib with Zinfandel sauce that was... More

I love eating outside at this restaurant. It overlooks the vineyards and has wonderful friendly waiters and waitresses, they are always there when you want them but they don't hover. The food is expensive and always good but I think it is overpriced. Say hello to Chester while you are there.

Cork's is a great place for friends to gather and have a good meal. The food is really good, the atmosphere very relaxing, the service friendly, and the wine was awesome. I highly recommend it!

I have eaten at Corks restaurant in the past and enjoyed the food and the ambiance. This time the ambiance was wonderful as usual. The carrot ginger soup was delicious, but we had to pay $5 for a small basket of bread, but my short ribs were very fatty with at best 2-3 oz of lean meat. Fortunately the sauce... More

Nice Sunday weather for outdoor dining. Corks is the spot. Only problem on our visit, was lack of a table outside for two people. Even though we had a reservation, we were told the two empty tables outside were being held for other reservations. We had to eat inside facing a window over looking the two empty tables. The inside... More

I am sorry you were not given a table outside on the day you visited us. I have made it known to the entire staff that we will, if necessary, move a table outside in order to accommodate a guest reservation. Thank you for the feedback. Chris More
