Cork, Fire Kitchen is a great place for a casual meal or a special occasion. The ambiance is outstanding with views of the gorgeous golf course from any seat in the dining room. The service is top notch. The menu is not huge but there is something for everyone and the food presentation and quality is excellent. Although it is in the bustling city of Temecula it feels like you are out of town in a special resort. This has become a go to spot when we want a nice, casual dinner.
Took 15 minutes to get a drink ordered. Manager came by and apologized and so did the waiter. Then another 10 minutes to get drinks delivered. Food was excellent as was the setting. Dessert was slow out of the kitchen, and server took way too long to process payment. Manager never came back after initial apology. We will return for the food. 2nd time here, both times the food was great, but mediocre service ruined the meal.
We were at the Temecula creek inn for a wedding had dinner there prior to the wedding, food and drink were great a beautiful place to have a meal and enjoy the area
There were 4 ladies in our group. The food and the service were fabulous!
We spent the weekend at the Temecula Creek Inn, which is where the restaurant is located. We ate two breakfasts and one dinner there and spent time at the bar. Every meal was wonderful and the staff excellent. They were friendly and attentive and had no problem with special orders. The ingredients of the meals were fresh, many times organic and definitely original! We enjoyed our time thoroughly!
Cork Fire Kitchen is a great spot for a relaxing dining experience. Restaurant is right on the golf course with awesome views. The food is excellent and the service is spot on. The menu is a bit limited but there is something for everyone. Prices are what you would expect of a upper scale dining establishment. We have had spotty service in the past but our last experience with Priscilla as our server was outstanding. There was a glitch in our dessert order taking too long but the manager and Priscilla made it all good and we had an excellent overall experience. We already have reservations to return next week.
Great food, great views, nice atmosphere.
As my mom lives nearby it is a lovely place to have breakfast with a beautiful view. Really only a dollar or two more for a wonderful setting.
Cons are that service can be hit or miss.
We had reservations and they didn’t have a table for us and offered to sit us outside where it was freezing and I said no that’s why we made a reservation
LoriAnne was great. Food was delicious. Highly recommended.
Great atmosphere, food, and drink. Reasonably priced, ideal for an after round bite or casual dining.
The wait staff seemed surprised by our presence and reservation. We waited 10-15 minutes to be seated, once we were seated we had to stop a waiter to get service. I would have left but we were visiting from out of town, had driven for 30 minutes to get there, and didn’t know the area.
Overall disappointing. The food was good, but the staff was aloof and unresponsive.
The dining area was clean and relaxing. The view of the golf course was pretty.
One of my favorite restaurants in the area. You can celebrate there but a fun romantic locals place with excellent food and drinks and service!
We had lunch and two dinners. Menu is limited but the food is good and service is very friendly. Wine list is limited but corkage is inexpensive. What they do they do well and food is fresh.
Great experience. The food tastes great and I will recommended to my friends.
Beautiful spot and views from patio seating. I love the food and the service is good, sometimes slower though.
Extremely slow service. No checking in from server or manager explaining why service was slow. Although we were there on a Sunday, it was not a holiday and restaurant was not crowded. Food was just ok. Also had to wait for a period at front desk before being acknowledged. Not sure we would return.
Great golf course location and well composed salads and entrees
We sat outside in order to enjoy the lovely view. Service was excellent. The dishes we enjoyed were he Deviled Eggs, Shrimp and Grits, Truffle Mac and Cheese, and Pasta Pomodoro. Desserts were bread pudding and fritters. Everything was delicious. The strawberry gin rickey and porch pounder are both excellent cocktails. Highly recommend!
The food was fresh and unique. I had the Ruben with Brussel sprout slaw which was so delicious. I was a little disappointed that there was nothing unique about the french fries; they were pretty typical. I had the green eggs and ham deviled eggs for an appetizer which were the best I’ve ever had! The wine was tasty. Honestly for the view alone I would definitely go back. The waterfalls, golf course, and Gardens are picturesque. Most people were dressed nicely. One person had their dog, so I guess this is a pet friendly dining location. Parking attendant was on a bit of a power trip directing people incorrectly where to go, saying there was no parking...when there was. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. Will be visiting again.
Went for Easter with elderly mother. Limited holiday menu. No gluten free options for meal. Mother did not enjoy her food...she is a traditionist. Their food is anything but traditional. The atmosphere and ambiance is terrific however.
It's a beautiful place in my opinion. Staff is very nice but service is slow. The biggest issue for recommending is that the food is terrible. The menu is limited and it seemed like the chef wanted to get too creative with bizarre combinations of food and at the same time, overcooking a simple burger. Unfortunately, that left us with the feeling of "Ehh... I wouldn't go back".
The Corkfire was a pleasant surprise. Usually when we stay at a resort hotel we check Open Table and drive to the nearest well-rated restaurant. I saw the ratings on Corkfire and made the reservation. The service is top notch. The broad bean and brussel sprout appetizer was excellent. The New York steak was cooked to order medium rare. The salmon special was very tasty but a bit overcooked. The mixed berry cobbler was delicious. We will return.
We tried this restaurant since we were staying at the Inn and it meant we would not have to drive. We sat in the patio which overlooks the golf cource. There is a limited selection on the menu for dinner but something for everyone (meat, fish, poultry, salads, etc.). The food was OK but nothing special. The portions are small but prices high. In total we had one appetizer, one Beet salad and one Arctic Char, two drinks each(beer&wine) $135.00 including tip.
Next time we will try somewhere else in Temecula.
Loved the ambience. Great place to meet friends, linger and enjoy food and conversation.
The hostess was rude to everyone. We were not seated until 20 minutes after our reservation and not given menus. Because we had no menus, the waitress accused us of seating ourselves. We asked if the bloody Maries were good and the waitress was super offended and rude in her response. The food was cold when it finally came out. One dish did not come out for another 5 minutes after the first two. We ordered home fries and were not told that they were allegedly out of them and that we would be getting a plate of tater tots from a freezer bag. My meal alone was $12.00 for 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bread, and a handful of tots. I could have gotten better food for 1/3 the price at Denny's. Do not go here for any reason at all.
The food was great, and the service was spot on! I would recommend this place to everyone.
Food and service were great for me, but my vegan friend had very limited options. The place is beautiful.
Always a wonderful time and the view, very beautiful and relaxing. Breakfast was delightful and tasty. Friends came for the first time and will return again with their husbands.
Excellent dinner occasion with my brother visiting from Boston.
Laurianne was spectacular! Unfortunately her assisting staff would come by frequently with others’ orders and ask if it was our food. That occurred enough to spoil the excellent ambience of the restaurant. The food was well prepared. The calamari came essentially dry and we had to as for aioli. The bread was hot and to die for. The burgers and the accompanying roll looked SO GOOD going by we changed our minds and were glad we did. We finished the meal with an excellent apple cobbler. A great meal - great ambience - great waitress! Please fix the serving staff.
The golf course view was pretty. Service was a bit slow but the turkey burger was amazing. We were hopeful for breakfast but I believe they stop serving breakfast at 11 or 12. More of a lunch than a brunch spot.
Went for a birthday dinner and service was excellent!! Food is always great too
Great place for a date. Only flaw was some food wasn’t up to par. Common concern was under seasoned but otherwise excellent. Service was awesome.
The service was amazing. We brought our 3 and 6 year olds with us and the waitress was great with them. Treated them like little adults.
On a mini vacation on the way to The Inn at Santa Fe, but we were hungry. Found this place on open table
We were famished so we ordered a flatbread, not good, too much dough
& unevenly cooked .
My hub has the special burger, I had a turkey burger with no bun
Both were good, mine was a bit dry.
The view is pretty and we’d definitely go back if were even in the hood
We could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our meal here, from the to-die-for cauliflower bisque to the divine, perfectly seared scallops to the exquisite lemon cheesecake—and particularly the friendly, helpful service from our waitress, Bree. Although we hadn't mentioned that it was a birthday meal, we were treated just as if they somehow knew it was a special occasion. Can't wait to go back!
Food was very good. Menu somewhat limited but there is ample variety. Changing ownership and should only get better. We look forward to dining there again.
Have been here mamy times but on this occasion the service was just terrible and the food took far longer than normal to come out. Won’t be returning for awhile.
