The Cork 1794
We went to brunch and it was excellent. The service was outstanding and we had a very enjoyable visit. Would definitely go back.
outstanding dining experience! we celebrated a birthday with brunch, outside, toasty warm with the heat lamps/fixtures. Everything about our time there was excellent. No complaints at all. Delicious food, service/staff attentive and awesome! Great music playing as well!
I enjoyed my brunch. The brunch burger was delicious and the pineapple mango mimosa was amazing! The feel of the restaurant was like I was out of town. It was a great escape from this crazy time. I will definitely be back!
This was our first time trying The Cork 1794. We were met at the door and greeted. Our table was great (right by the kitchen which was awesome). The food well what can I say it was out of this world. We wanted to try everything after eating our meals. Great food, great staff, we will be back.
We drove from Franklin to eat at the Cork, it's that good. My second time there, and I wanted my husband to try it for his birthday. Perfect! The atmosphere is lovely, service impeccable, and food wonderful.
Delicious Ribeye crusted with bleu cheese was super. Mac n cheese asparagus and strip steak were all fantastic. Thanks for the great service
My wife and I treated ourselves to a night out. Everything was excellent. A red velvet cupcake was a perfect way to end the eveningl
The Cork 1794 is one of my favorite places to eat in the Erie area. The food and service are always outstanding! The ambiance is unbeatable, I love this restaurant and refer any one visiting or searching for a great place for a meal to The Cork :)
Exceptionally well executed food, drinks and service. Everything was done just right. Clean food that tasted great.
From the atmosphere to the food to the service, everything was exceptional!
Fantastic service. Amazing food.
The only thing that we did not like was it seemed like we were rushed through our dinner. With a drink, appetizer, salad, entre and desert, we were in and out in an hour. Did not have time to relax a little and enjoy or food.
great place for fine dining. Atmosphere was relaxing, calming. Accomodations were comfortable.
We ate outside. Great atmosphere and music. Hopefully, the patio will stay open as long as possible. Great option during COVID.
Special occasion not noted. Food was fine but took ages and was tepid. Server was friendly but not informed about wines. Lighting a bit too bright. A bit disappointing overall.
Great place for excellent food, wonderful service and comfortable surroundings. We highly recommend The Cork. Thank you.
Had the cauliflower steak. It was delicious! I do miss the spaghetti squash on the menu.
I highly recommend The Cork. Excellent service and great food.
Ambiance was relaxing, food was delicious, and service was good. The only suggestion would be to brew a better coffee. It was very ordinary and a bit weak for a restaurant of this caliber. We will definitely return!
Hi Julie, thanks for your comments and thoughtful review. We are glad things were good for you overall. Our coffee is a special blend that is roasted especially for us by the Tipsy Bean a local coffee roaster and shop. Your comments will be shared to ensure our staff is preparing it correctly. Thank you!
We were visiting the area and found the Cork online. The reviews were good and so we thought we would give it a try. We could not have been happier. Our waiter was exceptional. He was funny and very attentive. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I had the filet and my husband had the crab cake sandwich. We shared a creme brûlée for desert. My husband really loved the brûlée. We will definitely be back the next time that we are in the area again.
Hi Samantha, We a re delighted you found us! We are so proud of both our Culinary and Service teams. They are both exceptional. We are looking forward to your visit when you are in the area again.
Ideal outside dining, felt safe yet nice atmosphere. Highly recommend
Hi Daniel, thanks for noticing how hard we are working in these uncertain times. Please join us again very soon!
We finally got to take my mother in law out for Mother's day - 10/17/20 from gift card purchase back in May due to Covid. Food was good. My mother in law enjoyed the Filet Mignon which is rare as she is a picky eater. The Tuna Poke Nachos were very delicious.
My husband and father in law ordered the Ribeye which was good but not the best they've ever had... overall experience was good... a bit pricey but much better than the average resturants in Erie.
Hi Melissa, thank you for joining us for such an important celebration and for the detailed review. We are very happy to hear your experience was enjoyed by all. Your comments about the Ribeye will reviewed by our team too as we want everything to be the best you have had! Please visit us again soon.
Waited 15 min to be approached by a server. Manager/owner paid for our appetizer but unfortunately the actual food was not good. Salmon was bland and the potatoes were greasy and bland idk if we will go back.
Hi Ani, I sent you a private message with my email. We would like to learn more about your visit. Our goal is to have happy guests every visit, every time.
Love The Cork. Glad it still is around after the hit restaurants took with COVID. No free bread anymore however. I paid over $100/person and they want to charge $8 for bread.
Otherwise. Love The Cork.
Hi Lee, we are truly delighted that we have been so well received by our community during the pandemic. Your comments about no bread service will be shared with our teams for discussion. We do hope you will join us again soon.
Excellent food! Waiter was very good and helpful. Highly recommend.
Hi Ann, we are so glad you experienced our wonderful Service and Culinary teams. Thank you for the great review. It is people like you that keep us smiling everyday!
Just a great place to go! Food was great and the manager asked how everything was and talked to us for a few minutes. So it awesome!
Hi Kathy, we are thrilled you enjoyed a great Cork experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
The outdoor dining felt safe and warm as toast.
You literally just put a smile on our faces. Just the experience we are wishing everyone has. Thank you for taking the time to share.
Great fireplace outside, Dan was excellent. Super upscale experience with great presentation and flavor. Dan was a super waiter and we will be back.
We just love Dan too, so happy you enjoyed your time with him.. Please join us again soon.
Very nice night. Seated quickly. The server seemed overworked, but did a super job. Will come back, when in the area.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at The Cork. We truly are proud of our Culinary and Service teams. We look forward to your next visit.
Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, and service was top notch.
Hi Dru, thank you for the great review. Your comments will bring a smile to our amazing staff!
Had not been here in quite a while--maybe a year. The improvement is amazing. The service was always good, but the food and bar could be hit or miss. Now, the food was outstanding, perhaps best burger in Erie, great fries, the Poke app and the firecracker shrimp were fantastic. Bar was on point--had three Verona cocktails (don't judge)--all mixed exactly the same and all mixed perfectly. Nothing worse than ordering a second cocktail and it tastes nothing like the first--that will not happen here. And the wait staff was not good--they were over the top good. And, all with proper pandemic safety procedures. I will definitely become a regular.
WOW WOW WOW! I must say we have learned alot over the pandemic and worked very hard. So glad you got to experience it first hand. We are thrilled with our teams and look forward to continuing to bring a great experience to all of our customers.
Good meal as always will return. Good drinks as well.
Hi Kent, thanks for being a returning customer. Have you tried our sister restaurants, Molly Brannigans and Skunk and The Goat. They are both a lot of fun.
The price for a glass of red wine was very ridiculously expensive! The price for a ribeye steak with no sides, was outrageous! My son didn’t like the reddy burger it had a funny taste. The restaurant was very cute inside and our waiter was very attentive! But we will not go there again! Sorry!
Hi Nora, we were were disappointed to learn that you did not enjoy your experience at the Cork. Your comments will be shared with our teams as we strive to do our best each and every day.
The best ambience and food! Outside has fires and TVs for a cozy atmosphere and the service was impeccable! Love the cork!!!!
Hi Anne, we are delighted you had a great experience with us. We are thrilled with our new additional heaters too. Hoping they keep us going for a long time outside. Next time, BYOB.... bring your own blanket!
A little gem place with great food. Nice patio with heaters if you want to seat outside.
We are so happy you enjoyed our patio. We hope to keep our outdoor season extended with the heaters and customers are welcome to BYOB......bring your own blanket!
Pan Seared Halibut with ginger lime risotto, & a red pepper relish is very good! Crab Cakes were awesome too! Wife and I split a bottle of wine at the table. Reasonably priced as well!
FYI: Waze tried to take us to a different location, Follow Google directions.
Hi Chris, the Halibut was a feature enjoyed by many, glad you liked it. Thanks for the great review and we hope you will join us again soon .
Arrived a bit early. Were seated fairly quickly, but host never asked our name to confirm reservation. Anyone could have been seated by just saying they had a reservation.
Atmosphere was not what we expected. Noise level was extremely high, not what one would expect from an upscale restaurant. Sounded more like a bar than a restaurant.
Food was delicious. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Really felt like they were there to make our experience a great one.
When my partner’s drink was made incorrectly they immediately remixed it. The waiter stayed at our table until she was sure our steak was done to our liking.
The restaurant was crowded but all appearances seemed to indicate patrons were safely distanced. Masks were required until we reached our table and it appeared all patrons were compliant.
All in all, we were quite pleased with our experience. The Cork was expensive, but that was expected. Reduce the noise level and you could be looking at a five star experience.
Hi Rick, Thank you for the insightful review. Your comment about the reservation has been noted and discussed with our service team. We are extremely proud of our Culinary and Service teams and they welcome any opportunity to grow and learn. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
It was fabulous! We are on the patio for safety during Covid. Service was excellent. Food was outstanding
Now you just made us smile! THANK YOU FOR THE HAPPY REVIEW.
