We planned our last night dinner at this restaurant to cap off a great week at the Marriott Desert Springs Villas timeshare. A hint of things to come occurred when we received their menus, which light up like a computer screen. These were state-of-the art, and featured their many gourmet offerings. Our beginning cocktails, martini and scotch, were great. We... More

A wonderful restaurant and hip bar. Outside dinning available and that is where we dinned. Great entertainment the night we were there. John Stanley King played and sang in the bar area. The rack of lamb was fantastic. Service from the moment we walked in till the dessert was finished was perfect. We will visit this place for our "special... More

Located conveniently on the side of an eclectic parking area for small stores and the Ralphs supermarket, the Cork Tree has an attractive entrance. Once inside, you can choose between standard (table cloth) seating, and bar or outside dining. Our friends, who had eaten there many times before suggested the bar dining as they did not want a lot to... More

Had a wonderful meal, with great service. Thank you to our waiter for recommending the scallop and sea bass entrees. Both were delicious, as was the escargot appetizer. Try and sit in the patio, but inside look nice as week.

Located in a strip mall we decided to give it a try before going into a nearby supermarket. Walked in and felt underdressed as the ambience was upscale so we opted for a drink and bite at the bar. The staff was great and offered suggestions on small plates. Bottom line is food, drinks and service were great and will... More

Went there for a nice meal. They have an extensive food and wine list. Portions are average size. I ordered the shrimp, scallop, lobster special... nicely done... lobster was tender, one medium size diver scallop, and two jumbo shrimp... more than enough... shared with my husband.... the soup trio and wedge salad were great starters. I was a little disappointed... More

Our waiter was very attentive. The food was just ok. Nothing to rave about, nothing to complain about. Just a good/not great meal. I had the duck -- a little too pink for my taste and a bit tough. My husband had the Osso Bucco which he enjoyed.
