There were two years between visits and Cork was great both times. A tapas is a unique style of dining for the area. The plates are generous and everything is good. We started out with the special of the day flatbread which was good because it was cheesy and thick, not the most flavor but still a good start. We then had mussels which were wonderful and then Philly cheese steak spring rolls which were good with their spicy mayonnaise.

Both times we sat at the bar and the bartenders and staff are all friendly and attentive. They have a nice wine list and offer wine flights which you don't see in bars too often around here. My favorite is the caiparinha. They use the real deal, cachaca, not rum like most places, and they're great!

There is outside dining if the weather is right and it's a neat spot right on the water front.

We have gone to "Corks" three times Each time we go we try something different The empanadas are delicious and they change every time we visit. The orange and beet salad is a very unique taste, a must try. The scallops whether the meal or appetizer no risotto is fantastic scallops done perfect and tasty risotto. The cod fish is excellent. I can't wait to go back and try something new

We ate downstairs in the small dining room of Corks. The beer and wine list is extensive, and the tapas selection varied and uniformly tasty. Three of us had salmon and one had beef. All the meals were well-prepared and ample in quantity. The noise from the bar upstairs was mildly obtrusive but not bad. Service was friendly and efficient. In a city without many 'destination" restaurants, Corks is highly recommended.

Visited Cork while in town visiting friends. What can i say---this place deserves a 6th star!
Everything was great---the food, the wine, the service and especially the ambiance. The dim lit room, stone walls and music were just perfect!

We enjoyed wine flights and shared several selections from the menu. Every single one was as good as the last. Cant wait to come back next time im in town!!!

My wife, daughter and I celebrated my birthday at this New Bedford waterfront tapas restaurant and wine bar. Our selection of tapas demonstrated good quality and creativity. The mussels were delicious with fresh baked crustini to soak up the wonderful broth. The sauce for the fried calamari/jalapeño was excellent. The tuna was perfectly prepared and veggie flatbread special tapas was also very good.
