Maggot in meal

MAGGOT IN MEAL!!! - Was just there for a holiday team lunch today, December 23, 2016. Was initially seated in the back but moved to the bar because of a foul smell. My colleague ordered a veal picatta and found a maggot in a tomato. We all lost our appetites and returned our meals, which were only half eaten. The owner was hardly apologetic and didn't offer to compensate us for our meals until we addressed it. Then he "generously" offered to remove one appetizer.

Very poor food

We went to the Open Cork for the first and last time yesterday. The food was appalling and the service disappointing. The grilled calamari with Pernod caper tomato sauce was charred and rubbery. They brought a replacement order at "no charge' which they later charged me for, that was floating in thick bottled tomato sauce, 20 capers and crunchy green pepper. Horrible. The cream sauce in my husband`s fettucini primavera was soupy and brown, clearly having been cooked with mushrooms. My spaghetti had more cheap thick bottled tomato sauce and undercooked vegetables. This place has TERRIBLE food.

Good Place!

We came here for a gathering and we were pleasantly surprised with this place! When we walked in, we were stunned by the beautiful decor, it is really breathtaking.The dining room is very spacious with ample seating for everyone. We sat down and was greeted by our waiter, his name was Peter. He was very welcoming and he also knew how to speak Italian which impressed us being that we are Italian. He gave us enough time to choose our meals and took our orders promptly. The appetizers came out first. I was a little disappointed with the bocconcini salad as it only had a few bocconcini balls, and the rest of it was lettuce. I was hoping for the entire salad to be bocconcini, at least I will know better for next time. The posedoin calamari was amazing, it was nice and crispy and the dipping sauce was fabolous! The complimentary bread was nice and soft, it melted in your mouth. The main dishes came shortly after the appetizers. The main dishes were good, except for the meat cannolini, which had veal instead of ground beef which I was hoping for. Otherwise, the main meals were great, and they tasted fresh! Then came the dessert. Peter recommended the tiramisu since all of the other desserts are purchased from a local bakery and the tiramisu was the only dessert that was homemade The tiramisu was good, but very liquidy, and you could taste the strong liquor. The presentation of the dishes was very professional, and Peter kept us entertained throughout our meal. The price wasn't too bad either, for three dinners, appetizers, and a few fancy drinks, it only cost about $80, can't complain about that! I will definitely be back to this restaurant, and I recommend you all give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

A warm and friendly atmosphere with great food

We all ordered something different on the menu and were all very pleased with our choices. Portions are so generous an appetizer and sharing a main course is more than enough. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire, it was so cozy and warm. Just a delightful evening on all accounts.

Hi everyone! I have been reading some not so positive reviews on this site for this particular restaurant and I just want to say that I have NEVER experienced anything negative here! I have held some major events at this restaurant and they have always been extremely helpful and courteous. I had my 30th Birthday, my Bridal shower, and recently I had my baby shower here! They have private rooms and the girls who work there are DOLLS! The food was great; the menu had something for everyone… I will be back again, and again, and again.

Not what we expected!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For a restaurant called "the open Cork", we have to say the wine list was horrible....the wine list was less then a page long.... Service was extremly slow...not friendly at all!!!!!!!! There were flies everywhere and the meals were not what we expected.... big portions.... but good luck finishing a few bites!!!!! Maybe we just came to the restaurant on the chefs "off" day.... but we will definetly not be visiting this franchise ever again!!!!!!!! Only recommend it for a beer on the patio!!!!!!!!!! Wast of time and money!!!!!!!!!!!

Never eat there if you want ATTITUDE!!!!!

I've been at open cork many times and lets say i will never go back again. 5 mins in to our dinner the waitress gives me attitude b/c i told her the drink she put in front of me isn't mine. Service was horrible. We waited about 45 mins to get our food which was cold when it got to us. If you wanted a beer your minimum wait was 20 mins. So we started ordering beer in large quanties so we didn't have to wait for another one after finishing the first one.. To make things worse we had to end our night and ask for our bill after the waitress used a bad name b/c he complained to the owner that she wasn't serving us. We ordered 20 shots b/c it was my girlfriends bday so we were celebrating. The server brought us 18 shots but not the full twenty. so after waiting for over 20 mins her husband complained to the owner and i guess the owner talked to her and when she came back out to the patio she starting yelling at him and called him that word. WHO DOES THAT. We spend over 800 bucks at this place. Waitress got big fat 0 of a tip for that. we wouldve spend lots more $$$ at the place if this whole thing didn't happen and she would got a big fat tip. thanks

Had an appointment with GM. He was a no show, decided to stay for lunch. Staff was attentive and very courteous. Decor was nice. The Calamari was swimming in tomato sauce with peppers, topped with goat cheese. Good texture but uninspired. I would have preferred something more delicate [i.e. olive oil, lemon] The Pizza had a nice crust but the toppings were run of the mill. More exciting ingredients would have been preferred. Great place for a business lunch.

Atmosphere was lovely, comfortable seats and the fire place on. The special salad with shrimp and the corn beef sandwiches and salad were wonderful. All choices ordered were delicious! Service was attentive. One of the customers lives near by and had never been before - she now plans to take her family there. We had a wonderful time and will return again for sure!.

There was a mixup with the reservation which was irritating. However, after some confusion they found us a nice table and were very friendly throughout the process. I was worried that we would not get good service because we had complained. Just the opposite. They went would of their way to provide warm and friendly service and offered a free appetiser to the table. Food was delicious, service was great. It was a great experience. I would recommend this restaurant highly to anyone.
