We were headed to LA and stayed over night in Palm Desert. We were looking for dinner and stopped at Cork Tree. (It is very close to another fine dining restaurant). They were busy so we sat at the bar. Great bar food and atmosphere. So great we went back on our way home and had another delightful meal.

Ate here last evening after not going here for a year or so and was so impressed that I wanted to give an update. Our dinners were just outstanding as was the ambiance and service. Expensive but worth it for a special evening out.

The food matched the service.... More

Went to the Cork Tree for our anniversary dinner per our concierges recommendation. The restaurant is located in a strip mall at the corner of two busy streets. Do NOT let that's way you, the food is excellent and sitting outside on he patio, we felt like we were relaxing on an oasis. The menu has lots of options and... More

We enjoyed a very fine meal. Scallops were perfectly cooked with delicious risotto and asparagus. My husband enjoyed medium rare lamb with mushroom risotto. A decadent chocolate dessert was provided to celebrate our anniversary!
