You will not be disappointed...be it for a drink at the bar and a nibble from their creative menu, or a full blown indulgent meal. Chef David truly has a flare for creating dishes and executing them beautifully. Always give their specials a look over and try to order at least one. Delicious! Cool vibe. Call for reservations if you... More

The food was unusual - in a very good way! We were there for Sunday brunch with a group celebrating a family member's birthday. I tried the buttery salty potatoes with parmigiano, slovenian fleur del sel .. wow, and I was sold on the chef's creativity and sense of the tasty. I wouldn't select the Cookery for quiet conversation. It's... More

So good I had to taste everyone's dish. Loved it all. Roasted chicken. Rib Eye Steak. Branzino. Even the bread and butter was fantastic. Loved the Lamb Bolenaise. Comfortable, homey atmosphere. Excellent service. Waiter was attentive and knew the menu.

Went with my wife during restaurant week and we both enjoyed our meals. She had the lasagna and I had the pasta special. Their almond desert was awesome.

The chef is wickedly brilliant and super creative! I've eaten here about 3x, usually go home very satisfied. That being said, a lot of pig parts on the RW menu. For someone who doesn't eat much red meat, it leaves a lot to be desired!

I love alot of dishes at the cookery, but my fav is bone marrow pasta, also they make the best octopus. It's trendy &a cool atmosphere. David Dubari is an excellent chef and is well known for his interesting dishes. I am never unhappy with a meal at The Cookery!

The menu has a good steady amount of choices and the daily board adds variety to it. the homemade pastas are superb. I love the Osso bucco as my favorite go to meal regular choice with a nice glass or two of red wine. The salted potatoes are a good side but the salt may scare you away. The only... More

Gave this place a try and was very disappointed. It was very expensive for what you received and the food was just mediocre. Appetizers were ok, but nothing memorable. We had the octopus / Mozzarella / Egg in a jar and a few others. What was really disappointing were the entrees. I had the market steak that was full of... More

Our family of four recently dined at The Cookery. At 5:30 it was more of a party waiting to happen but the decor, staff, and menu all spoke of a fun, casual eatery. By the time we left the restaurant was more getting into the swing of things. We started off with the octopus, mozzarella, buttery/salty potatoes, and bread and... More
