Cork Fire Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent although my steak was a little rare, but the waitress happily took it back to cook more and all was good. My wife enjoyed the wine and we both enjoyed the view and the ambiance of the place. We liked it so much that I booked a night there for my wife and I in January the next day. I look forward to taking her back again in January.
The service was excellent but we came at a slow time in the dining room. The food was expensive, sounded good on the menu but only mediocre in taste. We both ordered the trout. the "salad" was a few green leaves with no dressing. Portions were medium. The ambiance was nice except for the noisy Bar!! The best part was warm gluten free bread.
Great place for date nite or just going out for a good dinner. The food was fresh & prepared perfectly with just the right amount of seasoning & flavor. The restaurant is very well done & the staff are professional & knowledgeable of the menu items. Can’t wait to come back to Temecula & try other seasonal specialties!
After reading the reviews of C&F, we decided we need to check this place out for ourselves. We're so glad we made this our first dinner on our Temecula vacation as it set the bar crazy high for amazing cocktails and delicious steak. We sat outside overlooking the golf course and enjoyed the delightful setting. We'll be back to C&F every time we're in the Temecula area.
Try their version of an Old Fashioned...it's fantastic!
Disappointing.Chilled soup very thick,almost a puree.My main was cold,politely sent back and reheated by kitchen.Thought it would be remade.Not a fan of reheated prawns.Dessert was best course, home made ice,cream full of ice crystals sadly.Our 21st wedding anniversary dinner☹.But our server was fine,very enthusiastic service(speedy,which may have accounted for my cold food,which I suspect was cooked too early in the service).
We sat outside on the patio chairs and tables too low to really see the nice view you had to look between the rails that was uncomfortable there was a spider right above my head that the waitress had to take care of and move us so the overall visit was not very good I've been there other times when it was much better service was very slow so not a good night
My wife and I visit TCI several times per year and always dine at Cork and Fork at least a couple of meals during our stay. On most occasions the food and service is excellent. Last Sunday night we had dinner and it must have been an off night for the kitchen. We ordered the eggplant flatbread which was inedible. Hard as a rock, overcooked. The second attempt on the flatbread was much better. My wife ordered the beet salad with chicken breast for her entree. Unfortunately, the chicken seemed to suffer the same fate as the flatbread and was overcooked, hard and inedible. They were nice enough to take the chicken off the tab.
On a positive note, I had the angel hair pomodoro which was really excellent. We'll be back, but I hope who ever was in charge of the kitchen on 9/11/17 get more training.
Took out-of-town friends for a nice dinner. Sat at a nice table, but had to deal with flys around the table. We killed one. Very slow service. Had to wait a LONG time to get our order in and longer to get a glass of wine. Placed our dinner order finally, and it took FOREVER to get our dinner. Over an hour from the time we arrived before it arrived. Pork tenderloin was tender enough but tasteless. Salads were dry and ordinary. They brought 2 desserts to us in recognition of the long time to get served dinner. That was OK.
All in all, a disappointing dinner experience. We expected much better.
We went for our Anniversary dinner. Not crowded at 5:30. Sat near window at first but unfortunately the few flies hanging around were interfering with the enjoyment of the view of the hills and golf course so we moved to a booth further from the windows and it was much better. We have been here a few times before for dinner and the flies near the windows have been a common theme. They do take away from the enjoyment of the meal (last time one ended up in a glass of wine) definitely a spoiler.
Otherwise very good food. Great salmon dish and grilled shrimp pasta. The cheese board appetizer is great. Nice out of the way restaurant without being too far out of the way.
A scallop dish would be very nice, just my preference as well as a chocolate cakes type dessert or tiramisu type. Service was very good. Not pushy, attentive.
My wife and I took our daughter and her new boyfriend do brunch. Since this was our 1st meeting, I thought it was inappropriate environment to introduce ourselves to the young man. The service was excellent, the food delicious, and the ambience soothing. Thank you very much! We look forward to trying your dinner one night.
We had been to Cork Fire once before and really enjoyed it. Our company is having our holiday party there in December and everyone is being put up at the hotel. We decided to go back to make sure the food was still good. It was as good was we remember. My daughter chose the capellini with shrimp which she had before, my husband ordered the tenderloin special and I ordered the beet salad. The only thing that could have made it better was a little brightness needed for the tenderloin. It was good but could have been that much better. We paired it with a Cambria Pinot. A very lovely evening. It was dogs friendly as well as we had our two little dogs in tow. Amazing to be able to have a great meal and be able t bring your pooches. We're sold on this place. Can't wait for our holiday party.
