Great food (except for the supposedly shareable grilled sardines dish with two and a half tiny fish) is marred by sloppy execution. Long delays for wine delivery mean food gets eaten alone (this is supposed to be a wine bar after all). None of the roses on the wine by the glass list were available (but they're happy to sell...

Quite the disappointment. All the staff was rude & rushed us. The food was served in small, overpriced portions. Save your $$$. There are far superior restaurants to try in DC where one can be treated with kindness & not rudeness.

We really enjoyed the Prosecco tasting. The salad and the scallops were very good, the lamb chops were really delish, and the flourless chocolate cake was divine!

Staff was rude and felt rushed. The portions were very small as well so it was overpriced in my opinion.

I despise when business owners can't own up to their disaster and try to place blame somewhere it doesn't belong.

There are great wine spots in D.C. but this is NOT one of them. Any one can get great wine - ANY WHERE !! But service is poor and menu items are not exciting. They need to get a clue how to draw in business as its usually empty.

We walked by this place one night and picked it because we were starving and it looked cute (I'm a sucker for exposed brick walls), not because we knew anything about it. Its name caused some concern that it was primarily a bar serving basic snacks, but they assured us that they serve real food, so we went for it.... More

We ate at this small eclectic spot after the Women's March on DC. Needless to say we were very lucky to get a table at all but we were very hungry at 5:45PM. This restaurant is in the middle of a very "hipster" neighborhood with hundreds of eating establishments to choose from and every single one was packed that night.... More

Well, when I go to a top ranked wine bar I have the expectation that they know about wine. This is not Cork's way. That have amazing products but they have not a single clue about them. So, if you really know what to ask for between a large list of international wines, that may be your place. If not.... More

If you enjoy 'small plates' to share so that you get to 'taste' a variety of menu items, then this is your place...the wine list is extensive but my major complaint would be that the 'pour' is extremely small and, of course, very expensive for what you get..nonetheless, the food is delicious...try the avocado on toast...it was delicious...we ordered the...
