A friend suggested this place for lunch before I headed off to Refuge down the road for some relaxation. I am so glad I took his suggestion!

Liked the cute patio and atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was great. I tried the pulled pork sliders and my friend had the trout, which was fresh, not frozen. We got there right at opening at 11:30, and it started filling up quickly not too much later. I will return for sure, so I can try more items on the menu!

Love everything about this place! Server Tom was very nice and pleasant he knew exactly what we needed before we even asked. The pizzas were delish, we had three. Roasted tomato, butternut squash, and pepperoni for the kids. The crust was crisp and flaky. We ended up dipping the crust in balsamic vinegar and olive oil, yes it is that good. We sat outside with the heat lamps.We had a couple bottles of wine, it felt like we where in Tuscany. Loved it!!

Great place for wine tasting as well as an enjoyable meal. The food is really, really good and the service is the best. The food is excellent as are the wines. The patio is beautiful and it is very relaxing to sit outside, whether you are eating a meal in the restaurant or wine tasting. The pizzas are really good and so are the fish tacos. The patio is beautiful, with fountains and flowers. We went wine tasting there on Saturday and it was so much fun, we came back for lunch the next day. We will be coming back!

We were so lucky to find Corkscrew. Not only did they accommodate such a large group of people with their dogs but the service and food were also amazing!!

The staff was very attentive and friendly. Sitting outside on such a perfect day was the way to go. With 18 of us it can be a challenge to keep up with drink orders, food etc. If they were having a hard time I didn’t notice, they were on top of it and provided excellent service.

I had the BLT and it was SO good. Other items around me that got rave reviews were the burger & Chicken salad. If you’re in the area I would recommend it for sure and I will be back for sure. =)

My husband and I came into town at 7pm Friday night looking for a great dinner without a reservation and stumbled upon the Corkscrew Cafe (.2 miles from our amazing room at the Country Garden Inns/Hidden Valley Inn); lucky us!!!

Upon walking in every staff member was professional and more importantly genuine; not to mention meeting the owner at the host station.

Our meals were fantastic; any pizza is a great bet and my steak couldn’t have been cooked better. Additionally they added many little touches we do not see when we go out around our home in San Francisco…

Finally, the prices were more than fair for what they offered and I would recommend it to anyone in the Carmel Valley or Monterey Bay areas!

I went to Corkscrew Cafe tonight with my 4 year old son and some friends and their 4 year old daughter. Our server, Tom, was on the ball from start to finish- kudos to him for outstanding service.
Tom was very accommodating with the kids and did a great job interacting with them.

We ordered 4 different pizzas and they were all great. Tom brought out some Greek olive oil to put on the pizza and that was a great new flavor to add to the experience. We also had some outstanding coffee and dessert to finish off the night.

Great food, great ambiance, and GREAT service. What more can you ask for at a restaurant?
