I really hate writing a negative review about this place but the food was just not good - I had the pasta (recommended as the best item on the menu by the server!) with some type of chunky meat sauce was bland and honestly reminded me of something out of a can from the grocery store or Costco. The other two people who dined with me had the same impression of their dishes - no flavor and two of the three main dishes were cold- one was steaming hot. The small plates were good, but having to “order seven or so for the table” as the server recommended was not practical and we were still hungry just wanting to eat after these small plates were brought out - then the main courses came and were as described above. Service was good and it’s a nice atmosphere - a bit noisy and not the most comfortable seating (couldn’t get out of there fast enough!) but nice server and host - just not up to par as far as food goes. Disappointed and won’t be back.

Food, service, decor, ambiance and cocktails were amazing! Don’t skip the pear and burrata salad. Best thing we ate! One negative was definitely an over served man at the bar and a loud bartender. For a small restaurant the noise really carried and impacted our dining experience. Will go back because of the excellent food and amazing wait staff!

I went here for my family members birthday dinner. The service was phenomenal. The waiter was a sweetheart and patient. It was for a party of 8. Everything was setup so nice and area they gave us was amazing. I forgot his name.. but he was a white guy with nice curly hair. He was so great and kept checking on us. Joked around with us and helped us out with so many recommendations. He made the experience worth it. The food was delicious and so were the drink options.
I just want to give the biggest thank you to the waiter 😊.
10/10 i recommend anyone to have a nice dinner here or celebration.

We had a delightful time having dinner with our daughter last night. Malcolm, our server, was fabulous! We shared quite a few small plates that were delicious and served very quickly. Very enjoyable and relaxing after a very hectic week.

Our party of five family members got together for our tradition of having a meal out on Christmas Eve.

We had a superb dinner. Everyone enjoyed sharing tapas and entree. Every plate was delicious.

Only criticism was that the entree was served before we had received all the tapas.

Our waiter was very professional and friendly.

I recommend this restaurant for any occasion but is most fun with family or friends.

We have been to Under the Cork Tree several times and have always enjoyed the food and the ambiance. This last time we went for brunch and while the service and ambiance were excellent as usual, the brunch menu did not impress. Our party of four pretty much agreed that we would have enjoyed the food more if we had ordered an assortment of tapas rather that the brunch plates.

We will definitely be back, but probably not for brunch.

Our server, Alex, was great. We were brought everything (water, food, drinks, etc) timely and he was very pleasant. I made a reservation through OpenTable and they were able to seat us right on time with no issue. Highly recommend this restaurant. It’s a nice spot, food is good, and the atmosphere is great for special occasions or dates. Will be returning for sure.

We made a last minute reservation and arrived early. The host was nice and we were seated a few minutes earlier. The waiter was welcoming to my husband and son and gave us the back story to the restaurant. The food was outstanding! We will be back.

As I live in the area it is wonderful to have a good, affordable restaurant nearby for weekday as well as weekend dining. Everything about the restaurant rates five stars except that none of the waiters, chefs or guests were wearing masks or following any kind of Covid protocols. We had no way of knowing if our waiter was vaccinated, and as he was carrying our food and leaning close to us to order, that was disconcerting. They do have outdoor tables but it was too cold to sit outside. The hostess was wearing a mask so it was not until she led us into the dining room to our table that we realized that she was the only one. We thought of leaving but didn’t want to cause a scene so we stayed and felt uncomfortable the whole evening. If only Sandy Springs mandated vaccinations to congregate in public places! Until that time, we will only frequent restaurants that keep tables well spaced and have all their employees wearing masks.

We all enjoyed the food which was good and thought it was a nice place to go however the service was not great and deteriorated as the evening went on. They did not appear overly busy or understaffed so this caused the slow service to be more noticeable and annoying.
When we finally got the bill it was higher than expected and included an additional 20% already added for tip as we were a party of 6.
This was surprising as automatically adding a tip is usually done for larger parties.
We did not feel this restaurant provided value and combined with the poor service we will be unlikely to go back.
