Cork Fire Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
I like to start with the positives .... ...
I like to start with the positives .... Service was excellent and our server was very knowledgable about the food and wine.
The deviled eggs and oysters were great .
The shrimp and grits and the pasta pomodoro were also very good.
Wines were excellent.
Now for the negatives:
When we were seated in the booth by the window we were all shocked to sink so low that we asked to move. I found it very strange that whoever designed those booths wouldn't realize how low the seats are .
We were told all the booths were like that.
Food: calamari was good but could have been crispy ...
Ribs were ok as were the scallops but wouldn't order again.
Overall we all agreed a 7 out of 10 would be our rating.
We just felt that other than the wines and the deviled eggs with the oysters, nothing was really a Wow ...
Honestly we were expecting better

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner the last time we went to Cork and Fire. As vegetarians, there was - as always - a great selection of fabulous food and wine from which to choose. Coupled with extremely good service and ambiance, this restaurant has proven to always be among our favourites. Many thanks to the staff!

We love to eat here when we go to Temecula. We leave the warm LA area and get to experience what Fall feels like at the Temecula Creek Inn. Ahhhh....
The evening at Cork Fire Kitchen was made special thanks to the advice provided by our friendly and knowledgable server, Niki. Her suggestions were spot on and she made sure we got a place to eat our dessert on the patio after our incredible meal.
Thanks Niki and all the staff!

The vodka w/ pink juice special was sent back by my date b/c it was awful. The $50 steak special was ordered well done and came out medium rare. It took almost an hour for us to get the right meal at which point we asked for to go boxes. Older crowd (60's and 70's). Nice environment. Jacqueline was friendly.

The food was great the out door tables were perfect as was the weather. The restaurant has a beautiful out door area that over looks the golf course. There is not a bad seat in the house. My only complaint was the waitress she spilled coffee on our table twice forgot part of our order. She talked to the bus boys like they were puppies..... very strange. I would go back despite the waitress.

What is there to say, great floor to ceiling view of the golf course. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The environment is so pleasant and friendly. So glad we found the place on our way back to LA. The Lavender ice tea was refreshing and really good.

I cannot say enough positive things about this restraunt and our experience. We originally scheduled a 1200 lunch for our 9 year anniversary but ended up getting there at 1100. The restraunt was more than willing to accommodate us and provide us with a breakfast menu but encourageD us to stay and enjoy until lunch, which we did and are so greatful for. The views are amazing, the ambiance was top notch and the wait staff could not be beat. I am 7 month pregnant and Cork Fire staff definitely made me feel spoiled and relaxed. I would absolutely recommend this establishment for and meal and time of day. The food was also amazing!

We were warmly greeted an's seated exactly where we requested, on the patio. Roy, our server was spot on with his timing, his recommendations and his service. The food was nicely prepared and locally sourced; in fact, the herb garden leads you right to the front door!
We would recommend Cork Fire to anyone wanting a very nice dinner in Temecula. And the cobbler is AH-MAZING!!

We always look forward to eating at Cork Fire. We were able to sit outside on the deck overlooking the golf course and with the weather and time of day making it a great experience. Great location! The ambiance was very comfortable. The food was presented well and flavorful. No complaints at all, only compliments from all in our group. The restaurant itself is well appointed and well laid out. You wouldn't know you are just a couple of minutes from I-15.

The waitress was awsome the food was over cooked and Lukewarm. We had breakfast and had a coupon for half price. I would never pay full price for this experience in the future.

This was my second visit to the restaurant. I absolutely LOVE it, everything about it. The first thing you notice is the amazing ambiance. Both rooms are lovely, but I like the bar area the best. We sat on the couches which was fun. The menu is awesome, so much to choose from. Service was fantastic. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast in the morning. This restaurant is out of the way for me, but worth the drive because I consider it a favorite for all of the above reasons.

I went for a family member's birthday breakfast time. Food was decent, I would of preferred Denny's or Ihop. the portions were small and the food wasn't hot once it when brought to our table. We were seated by the window so that we can get a view of the course, but were disgusted at how many flies were stuck to the window dead and alive. I wouldn't go back.

Cork Fire Kitchen was very understanding that we got caught up in traffic due to road construction, and that our party had increased from original request. LoriAnne was a fantastic waitress, and took great care of our party.

My Cobb Salad was very good. My friend had the flatbread, but before she noticed the waitress had taken away her plate which still had two pieces on it without asking if she wanted it boxed up (which she did). Of course, the view is always excellent. I wish they could have a better menu for Lunch. I would go again.

I decided to make my days senior birthday a little more special than his usual annual bbq. It was a lovely setting with a great view to the golf course. The service was awesome and to top it off the food and drinks were delicious! If you want to have a special occasion and make someone happy for the day- this is this place!

The food was sub-par at best. Ribs were dry and tough, baked beans were over cooked but cold (figure that out), corn bread was burnt on bottom. My wife's Angel Hair pasta with shrimp was flavorless.
For a $250 bill for 4 adults and two children I expected better.

Breakfast was absolutely delicious for everyone at our table. Our server overheard me on the phone with a friend who needed a hotel in town and she graciously offered and went to check if Temecula Creek In had availability

Our entire experience was amazing. Food was delicious and service couldn't have been better. One thing I do suggest is that servers be more familiar with menu as in describing certain foods. But like I said our server was amazing, very friendly.

Nothing we ordered was particularly great. I ordered the Citrus Salmon special and it came plain on a very large orange tomato (the citrus). I would have preferred a citrus sauce on the salmon instead. The brussel sprout appetizer was probably the best thing we ordered, but I didn't like it enough that I'd come back for more. The service was very good though.

We arrived about 8:15 on a Sat night with a reservation. Few people there, but took about 15 min. for our waitress to appear. She said she was also serving in another room with a party & had been cutting cake. There were several other wait staff in dining room, so her explanation still made no sense why we were not seated where wait staff was available. Throughout the meal, continuous, long delays. Although we were very disappointed with the service, we would return to eat on the patio & enjoy the outdoor ambience as we had read about in reviews.

Temecula was a convenient mid-point for 3 families coming from different parts of California, to celebrate a birthday. We arrived a bit early for our luncheon reservation, and were seated immediately. Service was attentive and prompt, but we were comfortable and encouraged to linger as long as we wanted. Food was nicely presented, but not outstanding. The view, overlooking the golf course, was relaxing and interesting. We'll be happy to make the trek again in a few months.

Sunday lunch with a friend. Truffle/bacon/asparagus mac 'n cheese was spot-on to split as an appetizer. Yummy. I had a Reuben sandwich that came with side salad (or fries). Sandwich was excellent. Salad supposedly had house vinegarette-like dressing (suggested) but either it was too light or they forgot to add. Reasonable prices and staff was attentive.

Perfect for a romantic date night. 1) Reservations on-line in about 5 minutes while I'm running errands. SCORE! 2) Able to make reservations on-line to surprise my husband. SCORE! 3) The patio overlooked a waterfall, the golf course, and the mountains; we felt like the rest of the world just disappeared and allowed us to live in a little bubble of wonderful food, lovely scenery, and each other's company. SCORE! 4) Amazing menu options; great for foodies or just people who want a nice meal in a lovely location. SCORE! 5) Our server was just attentive enough to meet our needs while being great about giving us space to enjoy our date; some would say that she was away too long, but I think she was just an excellent server who knew how to read her clients. SCORE! 6) On a personal note, Cork Fire served THE BEST mocha I have EVER HAD!

Our appetizers did not quite hit the mark - Brussels were dry, and the calamari was rubbery. The dinners were very good - the big winner was the shrimp and grits, and the braised short ribs were very good. Dessert was hit or miss. The fritters were burnt, but the cobbler was good. Service was very good, and restaurant is attractive. If they could work out the quality consistency issues this would be a good spot.
