CORKED Wine Bar & Steak House Ratings and Reviews

Hip decor and wonderful service! Our waitress recommended a wonderful wine pairing. The food was good, but not amazing. The Arcadian salad was lacking, maybe needed a grain. We were also seated near a very large and loud group. I would go back and give the restaurant another try though!

This was my second visit to Corked and we drove more than an hour because I was so impressed the first time. Sadly, it seemed to have lost some of its luster. The food was good, but there seemed to be some communication problems between the waitstaff and the kitchen so that both my appetizer and dessert were not prepared as requested. Admittedly the issues were small and readily adressed. The ambiance is really cool, like you're in some sort of ultra modern Euro bar, but the dining room is arranged so that big parties are seated in the center, but very close to the 2 and 4 tops that circle the perimeter. We had the misfortune of being seated next to 2 groups of about 10 each who were extremely loud. It got to the point where I could not hear my dining companion seated right across from me. Lesson learned: not a good place for a date, and you would probably be better off on a weeknight if you want to converse with the rest of your party.

Good meal, didn't WOW us, service was adequate. The wait staff seemed to presume that because my wife and I were casually dressed for Musikfest and the 95 degree heat that we were not sophisticated enough to be there. Nice modern decor. Good wine list, some bottles priced inconsistent with quality.
We shared the Crispy Calamari which was superb, cooked perfectly. The lettuce on the salads was choice, crispy and fresh. The Caesar dressing on the salad was a bit too mild. My wife had the Caeser salad with chicken. I had the 8oz Filet. I asked the waiter if fresh chives were available for my baked potato and he assured me they were. When my platter arrived, instead of chives I received chopped green onion. I don't think the waiter was very experienced or well trained. My Filet Mignon was cooked as I requested "rare". Very nice char, succulent and tender.
Green beans were also cooked perfectly.
Good meal (other than green onion), adequate service, we expected more.

I've been here before and it was pretty good. However, last night we were not impressed. Food was just ok, waitress was completely overwhelmed (and slow) and they sat us almost on top of a piano. Had a piano player in my ear all of our anniversary dinner. Really unfortunate...won't be back.

Loud and it was a weekday. Not extremely busy, service was not great and the lamb appetizer was good, the steaks were not cooked as requested, they were tough and very rare.
Overpriced for quality at $47 dollars just for the steaks alone.
Heard great things only to spend over $155 dollars for so so good and service. Won't. Return.

The food & service were basically average, for this type of restaurant. Our antipasti appetizer was somewhat below average ...... not much prosciutto, also not too fresh. The pickled vegetables were much too sharp, in their taste. There was a good amount of cheese, in the mixture. We also felt the total bill was a little high, for what we had.
The service was horrible. 1 entree for ...
The service was horrible. 1 entree for a party of 6 wasn't ordered and the staff didn't manage to figure it out when the rest of the food was delivered. I had to go to the hostess station to inquire about the missing entree because there was no waitstaff to be found. We asked for water and another glass of wine for someone AFTER dealing with the missing entree and one would think that the server would have made sure those request were fulfilled quickly but unfortunately that was not the case.

We have been to Corked 6 to 8 times and I was surprised that I could get a same day reservation for Friday night at 7. I got the feeling that maybe their business had fallen off. It had and it is obvious why. First, I have loved the food there and the service was always very good. When we walked in, the entry mat was filthy and the bench seat to the right was ripped. These are easy things to fix, but it shows a lack of attention to detail that you expect when paying those prices. We were seated promptly, but it seemed to take a long time before a server arrived. No big deal so far, right? My menu was dirty, again lack of attention to detail. I thought our server was good, except they have different size pours of wine and when we ordered were not offered a choice. We ordered two appetizers and three entrees. The tuna tartar was pretty good, no problems. The calamari was a little soggy and too salty (a recurring theme). No real problems. Before I forget, they installed a sheer curtain between the main dining room and the bar. Terrible idea. The curtain is always blowing and it looks, well, cheap. OK. Entrees. Veal Chop, Rigatoni with lobster claw and Filet Mignon with scallops. Everything was too salty, everything. None of us finished our meals, it was just too much. I brought everything home and tasted it again this morning, maybe I made a mistake. I didn't. The food should be much better at half the price. There's more. The auto flush toilets in the men's room don't work properly, lack of attention to detail. And look, Corked needs to decide if they want to serve great food in a nice environment or be a club. We had some knuckleheads sitting at a booth against the wall near us, who were loud and constantly used bad language. It looked like they were holding court for their knucklehead friends. Noise is OK. Shouting and the language unacceptable. On the plus side, the service was good. Not returning anytime soon if at all.

Atmosphere was beautiful, well thought out tabletop and presentation of food. Food was good and service was very good, Evie was our server and she was attentive and made suggestions on the menu. Disappointed that there was only one crème brulee left for dessert at 7 at night and it was my daughter's birthday. The manager came by during our dinner and checked on us. You need to have more options without alcohol in the sauces.

Seating location made our dining experience. Our last visit was 2 years ago and the noise from the bar interfered with the ambiance and made it difficult to talk with friends. This time we were seated near the windows and away from the bar. We were able to enjoy the food and our surroundings without the unwanted noise. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent.

The food was delicious and the server was very attentive. For appetizers, we had spring rolls, tuna tartare, lamb lollipops, and oysters. They were all great. My entree, a filet, was cooked perfectly. It was well worth the price!

I took my husband here for fathers day. It was really a treat for both of us. It is pretty costly but worth the ambiance, the live music and the delicious food. The staff were attentive but not overbearing mostly presentable with the exception of one and very knowledgeable on the menu i look forward to my next visit.

I had planned the evening as a special occasion to celebrate my wife and I's 12th Anniversary. The staff was friendly, courteous, and professional. Our server, Matthew was knowledgeable on all items of the menu and also had thorough expertise on the pairing of specific wines with particular food items. His extensive detail regarding the origin, varietal of grape, and history regarding the wines we selected for tasting, and subsequently our final choice to pair with the meal was outstanding. His knowledge was that of a sommelier in the pairing of wine to food.
Our evening was capped off with a special dessert (recommended by Matthew/one of the house favorites) and was presented on a marble cheese board with the words "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate with a large sparkler candle on top to commemorate the occasion. During our meal the house manager visited our table to check on the food, service, noise level and overall setting for our evening. The attention to detail that the staff provided accompanied by Joe Grisafi's (Executive Chef) outstanding preparation of the meal we ordered, was par excellence.
I would certainly recommend Corked Wine Bar & Steak House to friends, family and colleagues. This was our 1st visit to Corked Wine Bar & Steak House. I am extremely glad that I chose Corked for my 12th Anniversary celebration. I also wished to mention that the front of house staff in greeting us, discreetly let me know that the floral arrangement I had ordered was pre-set at our table and it certainly made an indelible impression on my wife when she saw the arrangement of White Lilies, White Gardenias, and White Roses as a centerpiece for our meal. The flowers were her Grandmother's favorites, so the sentimental connection only further enhanced the wonderful meal and ambiance.
In viewing the bar and Lounge area, It was set up very nicely and had a great area for dancing but not too overbearing for those in the dining area.
We will definitely be back.

Our food was good but service less than optimal. We each ordered a 2.5 oz glass of wine but told our waitress at that time that with our dinner we would like the 4.5 /5oz size. We had to tell her we were ready for the second wine and then only one of us was given wine and it was the 2.5oz size! My friend told her of the error but she returned with enough wine for only one of us! I had to ask the manager for a steak knife as it was not offered nor delivered with my steak.
All in all, I thought dinner for two with wine and dessert was expensive at nearly $150.

Service was impeccable! Everyone worked together as a team to meet the needs of all the customers. What a find in the waitress with the first name beginning with an R. She went above and beyond with service. She was welcoming.

Enjoyed it, but pricey and I got sick right after we left. Had the 6oz filet, potato and vegies, one beer and water. My husband did not get sick. I was fine when we went and fine the next day, so I do believe it was something with the food.
