Waste of an evening. Servers have zero interest in making you feel good about being there. Food is average at best, truly not worth it. So many better places than this. Would not recommend for groups, service is incredibly slow.

Was not overly impressed with this restaurant. It was ok but don't think I will go back. I thought the menu was limited and expencive for what we got. The service was good and the bar looked well stocked.

Had a business reception here with drinks and horderves. Drink were good. All the different foods were great especially the chicken and waffles, and the burgers. I would love to try a full order of chicken and waffles in future.

This is a popular venue with a great menu. We were warmly greeted, seated and served by efficient friendly staff. We really enjoyed the meals and presentation. It's modern with a tasty twist. The Halloumi Mozza Sticks, the Chicken and Waffles and Summer Squash Noodles were different and delicious. Give them a try - you'll go back! A great restaurant!

I've had chicken and waffles in many different restaurants, in many different places, and these ones rate at the top of the list. Cool hip atmosphere, great service, you can't go wrong by choosing this restaurant.

I've never been to The Common and it was a last minute decision to eat there on a Saturday evening, 6:00 p.m. It was not busy at that time and we had lots of tables to choose from. The bar/restaurant was open and airy which was nice on a warm Saturday evening. My dinner partner and I started off with... More

I have tried a few of the menu items but the fish and chips is my favorite. Atmosphere is nice and service is good as well.

My husband and I decided to try this place, based on a recommendation from our hotel. We arrived on a Saturday evening around 9pm for dinner and drinks. We could not enter the establishment , as four bouncers were blocking the way watching a video on their phone . We had to wait for them to finish, even though they... More

Thursday dinner they have a DJ playing decent modern music a little too loud - everyone had to shout to be heard. The young people did not seem to mind. There were only 4 people over 50 in the restaurant. The squash and ricotta salad with scotch egg was terrific as was the sole stuffed with scallops, with crispy oyster... More
