In July 2013 I ate at the Cork and Fin. I ordered their prix-fix three course menu with wine (~CAD 50) I ordered 3 Oysters Rockefeller something, raw scallops with plums and foie gras something, and rock fish something. The menu item titles were more elaborate but unless I unconsciously swallowed the fois gras on my first bite, it was not present. I was not in the mood to argue but I checked the menu on my way out.
This said, I covered the unpleasant part. The dinner itself was very pleasant. I was seated inside directly at the open window. Oyster were fine, but not extraordinary. (I should have ordered the 6 raw ones at an additional 3$ or so); the accompanying wine, champagne-type white wine, was fine. For the second course, except for the potentially missing goose liver, the combination of raw scallops and plums worked surprisingly well and the chosen rose was fine, although a little bit too much on the dry side. The rock fish in the third course was a tad too flaky, but the combination of some sort of red pepper/tomato puree, watercress, a small amount of fried root veggies and fish worked well. The Pinot Noir that accompanied the third course fit quite nice (and was a tad of a surprise, since I expected a white wine.)
Service was prompt and friendly, but not seamlessly perfect.
I think would go again, but with somewhat lower expectations. But it certainly beats any pub food by large margins,
