"Our 1st brunch here was fantastic, the best eggs bene ever.
Our salad tasted like they had just picked it from the garden.
The mushroom soup amazing, and Subir is a mushroom farmer.
The friendly wine tasting experience before our brunch was very inviting and we bought wine.
May was our server and rounded it off to be one of the best brunches we ever had.
I recommend to all my customers and we will be back soon

"The impeccable service combined with the wonderful carefully prepared food makes for a delightful experience in this charming establishment. The friendly and attentive staff were incredible, gracious hosts. The evening was enhanced by the solo musician; which added to the ambiance. We will go there again and will be recommending it to friends."

"Good enough to try again. The service struggled throughout the evening as it was New Year's Eve. The menu was fixed, 5 course. The wine pairing was very nice. I would split the plate and wine next time."

"Gracious, well-informed staff. Food preparation, freshness and presentation - fabulous! Mushroom soup had distinct flavor, not the fat, creamy taste -superb. Nested quail entree and scallop entree one of the best we've ever tasted."

"Was looking for a place to take wife on a nice birthday brunch. Followed some recommendations on the Internet and came across Corks. Great little restaurant with outdoor seating that is best on a nice day. With the excellent food, atmosphere, and great service, they are the spot to go for a quick get away. My only recommendation would be to upgrade the outdoor seating . With everything so great there it'd be worth it for them to get something a bit more comfortable than the plastic chairs, however this won't stop us from going back!"

"We called for reservations and they told me they did not have any reservations available.
I tried Open Table and was able to get an early reservation.
The restaurant is small. The food was delicious! Especially the mushroom soup very creamy not heavy.
A delightful evening!

"Beautiful outdoor setting among the redwoods and oak trees with fall colors - perfect for a Saturday brunch on a warm autumn day. The farm to table food was fresh and pleasing - to both the eye and palette! We came for a double birthday brunch - there was six of us and two dogs. We enjoyed sitting outside with the dogs and happy for the live music, but was just a little loud for some in the party. I thought is was fine and liked the lively atmosphere.
The house-made burrata is to die for! I had the farm veggies with quinoa and loved it.
The desserts were delicious - cherries soak in pinot with chocolate pot du creme -yum :)
The service was very pleasant and most helpful. The only minor problem was the wine service. A bit slow -they put the wine in a bucket far from our reach, and they were not always there when we wanted a refill. We ordered a second bottle when food arrived and had to ask several times for it --almost finished our food before it finally got to the table."

"The setting is fabulous, the food was so fresh and organic, grown in sight of the patio! The vineyard's own wine was unbeatable. Service was friendly and the servers & sommelier were knowledgeable & fun.
We had a meat eater & a vegetarian at the table, both were more than satisfied. The papardelle with porcini mushrooms was incredible, as was the squash soup, and the meat dish.
Get there before sunset and you can take it all in (view) before and during dinner. The heaters were a great addition to the cozy patio experience.
Corks was worth the trip!!

"We arrived in Sonoma on a spontaneous afternoon trip and we're lucky to find corks It had great reviews. We had the steak and the entree with mushrooms and both were excellent. The live musician was first class. He played a superb jazz inspired cover of hotel California Would definitely recommend this restaurant."

"1. Menu was limited
2. Service was terrible. We waited 30 minutes
after our salad then had to get up to find
Server. She then came and told us our
order did not go through. In that time she
never checked on us or the status of our
food.
3. The food was not good. The fish was
over cooked and the pappardelle was
gloppy.
4. The salad was good.
I will not recommend Cork's to anyone."

"Beautiful, casual place ESPECIALLY for outdoor dining. Have lunch there where you can eat amid the redwoods. Highly recommend while touring Russian River area wineries for a nice lunch break. Very good local wine list. I've eaten here a couple times and really enjoyed it."

"It was a beautiful night for dining outside. We had a very pleasant server. The menu was limited and our food was good, but not outstanding. I had the beef short ribs, a little tough. My husband has the salmon and had no complaints."

"We went to Corks for a special occasion and were surprised by our first-time experience based on the reviews. Although the food and wine were superb, the service was poor, creating an awkward experience for us as hosts for our out-of-town guests. Kudos for the live entertainment (guitarist), but our experience was set off-balance from the start when the Maitre' D seemed confused by our request to order our first drinks outside, then move inside for dinner. The drinks got lost and we waited ... After moving inside we discovered we were the only party seated indoors which may explain why our server forgot about us. It's apparent that Corks is a winery first and a restaurant second, although the menu was excellent and food preparation superb ( all 4 plates were eventually served hot and tasty). Kudos to the chef. Perhaps there was a short staff or something unusual occurring behind the scenes; however, our impression was that the Maitre'D and our server were both far below the standard expected for this class of restaurant."

"Fantastic out out of the way little gem! The outdoor seating and ambience is the best in the valley. Sitting. Outside under a sequoia, with a guitarist adding to the experience. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, but not overdone. Menu was a bit limited with only 5-6 main course options-but the quality of food and presentation were perfect."
