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.

This is a good place to eat and a busy one. You can sit in the bar if you can't get a reservation. Food and service are both very good. And there is lots of parking with no valet malarkey to deal with.

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
