This little bistro/restaurant has all the charm in the world. The decore is early California with a fabulous alfresco garden done in a authentic Provencal style. This place is relaxed and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. You can spend the whole afternoon having lunch and no-one will rush you. This restaurant also features wine tasting flights from the next door winery. Georis winery is a small local producer and the presentation and tastings are nicely presented with tasting notes. One of the fabulous features of the neighboring properties are the fabulous gardens with fountains and little coble stone paths that take you through the different areas with hanging grape arbors. I was first introduced to this little jewel by RACHEL RAY on $40 a day. She was right on target with this place.
The menu is diverse, great vallue !! I had the Halibut Tostata, it was superb, my husband had the pasta of the day, linguini with seafood, he loved it with the Georis Sauvignon Blanc. A must if you are in the area. Check out their web sights.
Great for kids but you have to keep on eye on them because of the fountain areas. If you have a dog , he will be happy here.

Pros: ROMANTIC AND CHARMING ambience is fabulous, in a rustic early California setting. You can relax here. bring your family, your dog and be transported to a different time and elegant old world setting

The food is excellent, but the hostess / waitress was shockingly rude, so much so that by the end of our lunch we were looking at each other in disbelief. The Corkscrew used to be a favorite of ours, until we took out of town visitors, thinking they would enjoy it also. We were very embarrassed and disappointed by the way we were treated there. Never again. Don't waste your time or your money at The Corkscrew.

By the way - we are surprised they can get anyone to work there, we also overheard her berating the kitchen staff. Very unpleasant experience.

Pros: good food, good quality

Cons: the worst treatment we have ever gotten at any restaurant, ever, from start to finish

Ive never been to a restaurant with such horrible customer service. The waitress was extremely snooty and the manager was very unprofessional. I will never return to the Corkscrew again, there are far better restaurants in the area.

Walter Georis, chef-owner of Carmel's Casanova, also operates Corkscrew. He's a vintner, too, so his name on Georis Winery next door is no coincidence. Terra cotta tile, painted furniture and eclectic decor reflect the earthy spirit of…
