Waterbury seems to be a beer town (at least with respect to Heady Topper) and Cork is a nice alternative if you're in the mood for wine (although they do have beer as well). We have been two or three times and have enjoyed our experience - and ended up speaking with both the bartender as well as other guests each time - all of whom were very friendly. The décor in the bar is perfect for a wine bar and the wine available to drink is also available for sale (to bring home).
The small plates of food are tasty - although probably not enough food for a full meal (more a snack or pre-dinner appetizer). If there is one negative it is that the wine list is a bit obscure and random (I had never really heard of anything) and the bartenders know the basics of the wines but not necessarily all of the details. It might be nice to have a few more mainstream (or US) wines in addition to the current selection. But overall - this is a great place.
