"I love this spot! Located in Forestville in one of the prettiest spots in Sonoma County; you instantly relax immediately from the beauty of the scenery and the coziness of the buildings. My sister and I sat outside, best place to sit, and got to listen to the beautiful jazz guitar stylings of Jesse Boggs and Bill Horovitz, while we ate. These are two of Sonoma County's best musicians- a real treat!! The food was lovely. The fresh scones, too good to leave there when we couldn't finish the basket, were scrumptious and just as good the next day for my breakfast. I had a pretty standard breakfast and loved every bite. Great potatoes, bacon and scrambled eggs. My sister had Eggs Benedict and loved it too. There are more adventurous choices available but we were happy with ours. The wines, of course, are great and there is wine tasting available there too. The service was good as well.
Go for brunch, stay for wine tasting and the music and enjoy the beautiful surroundings!

"My husband and I enjoyed a great evening at the restaurant while having a weekend get-away from an everyday hustle and bustle. The place is lovely, the food is delicious and and the wine complements it all. The best part, though, is the service: the restaurant manager, Josephine, is simply great! She is such a joy to talk to and takes all customers (also pets!) so well 'under her wings' - very professional indeed. No doubt she's in the right business! Also the rest of staff were very friendly, considerate and made our dinner a very pleasant one while visiting the Russian River area. Will definitely return!"

"We go on Thursday evenings to hear the incredible guitarist, Jason Bodlovich. While we soak up his amazing talent, we enjoy great wine and food. Staff are lovely, food is local (fresh from the garden), and setting is gorgeous."

"On a day round trip from San Francisco to Sonoma, we used Open Table to explore lunch possibilities. Up popped Cork in a town we had never heard of along the Russian River at an unknown winery. It ended up possibly the best lunch we've had anywhere in the world in the last few years. I don't want to spoil the surprise for you, but let me say that you will enjoy every aspect of the experience, particularly the food which could qualify for a Michelin star!"

"One of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have ever had! The live acoustic music was fantastic and perfect for dining. All help was very attentive and friendly, and the food was outstanding! We were celebrating my mother in laws 89th birthday and she was given a complimentary dessert, and the musician even snuck in an acoustic verse of Happy Birthday in the middle of his version of "Lola". We will definitely be coming back soon."

"We really liked RRVinyards/Corks. Nice seating, excellent service (we went during the Oscars, so it wasn't very busy.) I really like the locally sourced food menu. But there were only about six entrees. Plenty for me to choose, but my guests are a bit on the picky eater side; so had a hard time finding options.
The Neptune bakery breads are to die for. The desserts, tiny but tasty.
Hyper friendly.
One big con: the music (singer w/ guitar) on this night was miked too loud. Would have liked something more soothing or "backgroundy".

"We had brunch in February on the patio, beneath the redwoods. Lovely garden setting, great ambience, live music, superior service, and flexibility as we waited for one very late individual - we stayed for over 2.5 hours and always felt welcome, servers were attentive and charming, scones were exceptional, French fries memorable, just a lovely interlude - Thank you, Corks!"

"I almost didn't write the review because I don't want people to find out about this gem. I want to keep it to myself. It is the best food I've eaten in nearly 10 years. The service was perfectly nice, not stuffy or overly formal. I can't wait to come back with friends on my next visit."

"Very good food. Lovely to sit outside. The portions were small, so not so good for my husband. We shared a wine pairing and were a little disappointed in the choices. But we would definitely go back, especially for lunch and to sit outside."

"The restaurant had a special five course meal with wine pairings for Valentines day. The food was spectacular in taste, presentation, and creativeness. The portions were well balanced so that we didn't feel guilty eating every normal. The wait staff was friendly and engaging. Couldn't have asked for a better dining experience."
