Atmosphere was relaxing. The quantity of food was excellent. My fish was a little too dry. The shareable plates were excellent.

Kitchen obviously didn’t give a , dishes were missing main ingredients listed on the menu. Drinks were okay but it sounded like someone was moving a piano upstairs.

Very cool spot downtown on 109th. I always thought of this place as more of bar with good drinks, but to my surprise, they do have very good food and great lunch specials!

Pretty mediocre and overpriced. Beer is almost 8$ a glass which is extreme. Food is not worth it either, small servings or a deep fried mess. A double gin and tonic is close to 18$ that’s ridiculously overpriced. I guess if you are one of those people who don’t care about value and money and just want to be at a place with a bunch of pigs with lipstick on then please enjoy.. One of the most pretentious places in the city of Edmonton. We don’t live in LA

Hi Realtalk. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The majority of our beer program is local and our pricing is reflective of craft beer costs. I'm sorry that your food experience fell short of what you expected. To further discuss, please email me at nicole@thecommon.ca Thank you for your time.

Love the atmosphere! My husband and I went for a night out on a Satuday - dinner and dancing - and it exceeded my expectations. I was very pleased with the menu options (since I am gluten intolerant) and the quality of food was excellent. As the dinner service ended the music got louder and dancing began. Overall it was a great experience - clean space and bathrooms, good music, adequate size dance floor, and a good amount of bouncers which I'm sure helps in keeping the tone of the late night crowd respectful, safe, and happy. Good times :)

Everything was delish
Cauliflower pizza was not what I expected ... I wish there was something more savory about it
All in all great
Will go back
