Try our new, romantic outdoor patio! Once you enter through the ornate garden gate, you will feel safe and relaxed. A mural wall by graffiti artist iSurge, lush tropical greenery and an herb garden helps set the mood! Recipients of consecutive Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence since opening for 6 years straight, and a DiRona Fine Dining Award recipient since 2016. The menu is based on comfort food with global influences. Everything served is prepared from scratch, from cured and smoked meats, charcuterie, pastas and gelato.
The menu changes slightly with every season, and the wine, sake, and beer list is always evolving and growing.
The Cook and The Cork does not want to be considered fine-dining, but we take food and drink seriously. Our goal is to have all our guests be a part of the fun, and to share the love we have for the restaurant, food, and staff. Private and large parties accommodated, please contact directly: res@thecookandcork.com or call 954-227-2665

Menu is more on refined dining with an Asian flare. Also found it to be limited in entrees. Website and PDF menus are not consistent.

As always, the food and service was excellent. We ate in the new outdoor space and felt comfortable and safe. They allowed us two tables for a party of four 6 feet apart, so we were able to chat while social distancing. They were very accommodating! Thank you for a wonderful night!

Given it was NYE and issues associated with Covid-19, they did a great job of accommodating our request to move inside and had the seating spaced out very well.
Service was excellent and quality of food was very good

My first visit and I was totally blown away. The food, even with the limited menu was amazing. The short ribs (boneless) were so tasty and no knife was needed to cut them, that's how tender they were. With a side of wasabi mashed potatoes (not real spicy) and zucchini, this dish was perfect! Although I had trouble finishing my food, there was plenty of it, I did eat all the ribs. Outside dining was refreshing, in a quaint garden with herbs, holiday lights, plantings like bird of paradise, and a water feature. Service was impeccable.

The Cook and the Cork has been my favorite restaurant for several years. The food is one of a kind! We love the small plates as you can sample all of the incredible dishes Chef Keith and Chef Lou dream up. Dena and her staff are always so welcoming and have become like family to us. If you haven't tried, the Cook and the Cork, you are missing out on a true unique experience!

The shrimp tempura was worthy of 3 Michelin stars. The grilled mahi was also wonderful. Homemade gelato for dessert. Most importantly, they are being very cautious about safety. They also have a charming outdoor patio for dining if that’s what you prefer.

We love The Cook and the Cork. The ambiance both inside and outside is beautifully inviting. The service was excellent from everyone. Our server, Jordan, knew the menu (both food and wine) inside and out and gave great recommendations and really enhanced our overall experience. The chef and owner both came to check on us. As for food the highlight was the glazed short rib. It was the best we’ve ever had. Lastly, the homemade biscotti ice cream just sealed the deal for us. We already can’t wait to go back!

This is absolutely one of the best little gems in Broward county! The food, service and overall experience are hard to beat. A favorite of mine are the Korean rib appetizers, they normally come 3 to a portion but we were ordering small plates for the table and there were 4 of us and they said no problem and added one more to the order. Took 2 others for the first time and they flipped out over everything from the appetizers to the homemade ice cream. Chef Keith is a star and a big supporter of new culinarians coming into the business. Thank you Chef for a fabulous evening!

I think they were having an off night. We did small plates for the most part. The octopus and crab cakes were awesome, the pierogies lacked any flavor at all other than the plain sour cream they came with. Disappointing. One of the nights specials was blow fish tails, over cooked, very little edible bites, very little flavor, lots of bones. When compared to flying fish they are not worth the aggravation. The accompanying aioli had little flavor as well. The one large plate we tried was the crab stuffed-fillet of flounder. Cooked perfectly with excellent crab stuffing. Great flavors here and seasoned well. Unfortunately, a bad job of prepping the flounder. Multiple bones left in the fillet. That’s just unacceptable. The owner did step up by providing a dessert at no charge. Service was excellent and it was not over crowded. My family felt comfortable as restaurant/staff were following all Covid-19 protocols. Staff was very attentive to our needs. We will give it another try. Our one luxury we give ourselves is to go out one weekend night to a NEW to us restaurant. There is a lot of competition for this niche type dining and we had heard many great things about The Cook and The Cork. We left somewhat unimpressed / disappointed but not willing to scratch them off the list just yet. As I said in the beginning just an OFF night I guess.

This is a must try place. The outdoor patio was perfect, almost as perfect as the food. Their small plates ( we ordered the ribs and pierogies) are so delicious. I had the mussels for dinner and hubby had the flounder stuffed with blue crab. You can not go wrong with anything you order there. We will be back!

We've been trying to get in to eat for over a year, but between the pandemic and unique hours of operation, we were never able to get in. We finally had dinner there on Wednesday, and everything was perfect; the food was gourmet and the wine was superb.

The Cook & the Cork stands out in parkland/Coral Springs. Chef Keith and Dena are the best and the menu is like nothing else. I’ve had the Cook and the Cork do catering for me and it is spectacular. I recommend this restaurant for tapas, wine dinners, a night out with friends, or any special occasion If you are concerned about eating inside, the restaurant just opened a patio area and it is perfect for dining. I love it here.

We’ve been there many times, but it had been a while due to COVID. They picked up right where they left off, like they never stopped. So happy they made it through. One of our favorite restaurants!
