    The focaccia bread starter is absolutely a must! My husband had the smashburger and will probably eat it again next time we are there 😊. We shared the seasonal salad and a cauliflower side .. everything was so so delicious! Can’t wait to go back!

    We would definitely return to this restaurant! The food was fantastic - notable were the focaccia bread appetizer and the scallop/succotash main dish! The ambience was quiet and it had a neighborhood feel - so a great place to catch up with friends. It seemed a little pricey for the portion sizes but that won’t deter me from going again.

    I was glad to see a new restaurant moved into the old yellow porch location. They have made some nice changes. The dinning room is lighter and more open. They have added a beautiful bar and improved the outdoor space. The food was very good and also a good value. Our server was extremely nice and attentive. The manager talked to us and we all felt very welcomed. We are glad to have a nice little neighborhood gem like this. We will be going back soon!

    The vibe was a little off but the food and drinks were delicious! Dinner prices were higher than expected for an “eatery”. I went on Tuesday night and the restaurant was practically empty which meant a very attentive waiter. I recommend the smashburger and potatoes!

    This is a great place to eat for a date night or a girls n night out! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and it was quiet enough that we could all hear each other! It’s close to everything, but also tucked away from all the craziness 12th South has become.

    I like Common Ground...while I thought there menu selection wasn't extensive, my halibut was great. Service was not terrible, but not great either. I'd come back, but it didn't become a favorite.

    Michelle was the BEST server I've encountered in a long time! Matt the owner was very personable. Atmosphere was great! Miss certain aspects of Yellow Porch - but Matt and partner did an incredible job on interior! Probably the best burger I've had in Nashville. We had a table of 4 - everyone loved their meals!

    We had a fantastic experience visiting the Berry Hill Location for Happy Hour on a Tuesday. From the small plates, to appetizers, to our entrée everything was exceptionally delicious. We shared the Espresso Martini flight, which was a perfect preview; we also shared the banh mi small plate and the focaccia plate. We had the seasonal and the kale salad. Both were fresh and bright on our palates. We rounded out the meal with a martini and daquiri. We had a fabulous server and hostess; both whom we felt treated us as old friends. We will return.

    BEST cocktails in Berry Hill by far. Common Ground bartenders just know what they are doing, from a dirty martini to a bacon fat old fashion, every time I try a new cocktail it seems to be the best of that style I’ve had in a long time. Their food is absolutely delicious as well, definitely try the beef tartar and the smashburger!

    I was disappointed when the Yellow Porch went out of business, but wanted to make an effort to support a new local restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by my evening at Common Ground. The service was great, and the food was all delicious. We usually don’t get dessert, but splurged, and it was worth it. I had the scallops as my entrée and loved the side of corn and bean salad that came with it. The people I dined with all ordered steaks that they said were perfectly cooked and very tender. It feels a little pricey for what you get. $10+ sides that aren’t exactly shareable seems excessive, but unfortunately that’s expected in Nashville nowadays. There is limited parking so be warned that you might have to park next door or across the street. The lot is too small for the restaurant, but that was a problem with the Yellow Porch too.

    I was sad when Yellow Porch closed but this is a perfect replacement. Our waitress was adorable and made it a very nice experience. It's a great "middle of the road" experience. The ambiance is certainly not fancy at all but not too casual. The burger and fries were delicious! Wish they should see if they could get the recipe for the old Blue Cheese Celery Soup from YP. That would make it perfect!! Will love it even more when the weather allows outside seating.

    The food was amazing. The chicken dish was moist and the skin had a slight crunch to it. The fingerling potatoes came out piping hot and had perfect seasoning and the perfect “crunch.” The mocktail with pineapple juice and orange juice was delicious too. The wait staff was patient and very accommodating. I have a dairy intolerance and they worked with me to find the best and most delicious options on the menu. They were attentive but not overbearing.

    Wam bam shrimp - so good. Mocktail menu - so good. Our scallops were perfect. The fish was slightly overcooked but it was a good portion size and the flavors were on point. Great service from Mary Grace including an interrupted touchdown dance! Will definitely be back and won’t skip dessert.
