Was in the area for the weekend and tried this place solely because of the high ratings on tripadvisor. Thank you advisors! you did not let us down. From the outside street view, the place doesn't look like much, but once you step inside it is tactfully decorated and has a really neat vibe. The wait staff was very attentive... More

Food was good at best, not as good the number 1 rating it has. Was hoping for better. Also not cheap , although I dont mind spending more if worth it.

I love cork. One of my favorite spots for girls night out or date night. The cosmetic upgrades made by the new owner make us feel so welcome. Patio is updated, modern, and bright. Plus we can bring our pooch when dining outside, what more can you ask for?!? The staff at Cork always make us feel like family. Highly... More

Cork is a true gem! I've been dining here at least once a week for the last year and a half, and I have never been disappointed. One thing that always keeps me coming back is the quality of the meal you are served. You can tell there is time and love put into each and every meal, and your... More

Had a great meal on Mothers Day at Cork in Wilkes-Barre. The NY strip steak was outstanding and cooked to a perfect temperature.

Initial impression was bad, way too noisy. We chose to eat in the upstairs dining room the noise was still there too! Service was decent but not great. The food, however, made it all worthwhile. The prime rib was magnificent and the ahi tuna was also. I'd go again but not on a "holiday".

Awesome menu with gluten free and vegan options! My husband and I devoured our appetizer "Greek Stuffed Portobello"....it was heavenly. I got the "Katie's Crab Cakes" and my husband got the "blackened red snapper". The red snapper might be our new favorite fish! We couldn't believe how excellent everything tasted! I can't wait to get the crab cakes again! Couldn't... More

We were in town for a meeting and ate dinner at the Cork - a quintessential neighborhood bar & restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was ample and delicious. I had the duck and it was well prepared. They have an extensive gluten-free menu, good appetizers and wonderful drinks!
