Dined on a Thurs night at 6:15. Greeted and seated promptly as was only about 1/3 full although filled up quickly. Servers were all attentive and no lapses in attention. The wine list was adequate, a bit short on French whites, but nobody was left...More

A lovely place to eat a fine meal! With my husband being hard of hearing, it is hard to find a place where he can converse without so much background noise. In the various rooms they have heavy curtains that help absorb the background noise....More

Service was very friendly and prompt. The food however was lacking flavor. Presentation was fine but everything tasted underwhelming. One exception was the beet salad.

We stopped here on a busy night and were lucky to get a table. The food was amazing! My husband had the lamb dish and it was the best lamb I have ever tasted! Excellent food and drink, nice atmosphere.

We had a great dinner here! Our server, Heather, was terrific. I had Chilean seabass & my husband had the lamb chops. Both dinners were really good. We enjoyed Cork Tree. It was a lovely atmosphere for our last day in California!

We’ve eaten at the Cork Tree three times in the last six weeks. The service, food, and ambiance has been consistently excellent. I’m a vegan and had the risotto which was light and delicious. My wife had the salmon. Both meals were perfectly made.

We enjoyed our experience at the Cork Tree. We had a comfortable table, enjoyed the music and good service. The food was excellent. The only disappointment was the Caesar salad which was totally nondescript- I expected much better from this establishment.

We had a private area for a group of 6 at Cork Tree. Call them and see about accommodating a group of 14. They were very helpful. Enjoy
