The Cork and Cleaver is one of Fort Wayne's best restaurants. It's steak are top notch and the salad bar is extraordinary diverse. The black caviar is great. My wife and I went there on 1-2-2017. We both had the 8 oz. filet mignon with an inexpensive bottle of wine. It ran over 100.00. You get what you pay for.

Good service, good bar and great salad bar! The other food is good, too, but seriously, I mostly go for the salad bar!

Stuffed mushrooms & shrimp appetizers great as always. Salad bar best in the land. Coffee crusted ribeye steak was divine! Service and atmosphere impeccable.

Visiting friends in Ft. Wayne for their anniversary, and they wanted to come here. Salad bar is awesome. Unusual items you don't often see like black caviar, creamed herring, anchovies, artichoke salad, and almost anything you would want to put on a green salad including even a variety of lettuces on which to build. The salmon was probably the best... More

We recently celebrated a friend's birthday there. It's by far one of the best places in Fort Wayne. The salad bar IS the best around. Everything there is amazing. The service is excellent. You just can't go wrong - except assuming that they will have a table for you. Reservations are a must on the weekends! Enjoy!

We made dinner reservations for our New Years Eve celebration, and arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation. We went to the bar to await our table time, and ordered a couple beverages. The bar tender was quick to acknowledge us and took our order, served our beverages quickly and checked on us. When our table was ready, we were... More
