Good was way too expensive and wasn’t even good. $10 for an order of French toast on kids menu. Bill came also with 20% gratuity already included and there was only 3 of us . Service was good and we would have tipped that much anyway as we don’thold the wait staff responsible for bad food, but what if service was horrible? Just visiting my daughter, but when I visit again, will not go there.

The food was fine. Drinks were great. The cleanliness of the restaurant was not great. I’ve never seen that much dust accumulate on a ceiling ever before. Makes me wonder about the cleanliness of the rest of everything.

I’ve been here many times and am always excited to go back. Great food, wide variety of drinks, and fantastic service. It’s almost always busy, so make a reservation! It can be a little noisy, but it’s just because it’s almost always packed.

We really appreciate that the Commons serves wholesome bread with its breakfast plates with what appears to be healthy, homemade hot sauce and raspberry jam. My easy-over eggs were cooked to perfection and I noted that the potatoes were red-skinned potatoes that were oven-fried, I believe.
Thank you for not skimping on the quality of your ingredients.

The service was good although I am unaccustomed to having an automatic 20% tip applied for a party of four: my wife and I plus our two kids. Wine selection on menu was just ok but ability to buy a bottle from the check in area and play corkage is great. Food was good but was disappointed by my main entree having only 3 small scallops.

Overall a great place to meet for a casual meal. Staff was a bit slow, even though the place wasn't crowded. He didn't ask us if we wanted dessert; just gave us the bill. Once prompted, he was accommodating to us. The food was really good and the servings plentiful.

Always a good experience. Both food and service are solid. We enjoy popping in for a meal or sitting at the bar for drinks. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal.

I didn’t let this affect my rating because I love this place but it would be nice if the server pointed out the auto added service, grat so guests don’t pay an additional amount without realizing it.

The Avocado Toast was delicious and the Classic Benedict was superb. Our waiter was great, and kept the coffee coming. My only complaint was that the potato’s were over-salted, but the Benedict was filling and the poached eggs were
Perfectly prepared! Thank you

One item came out wrong but was corrected. The second item came out cold but we didn’t say anything since they made it special.

If being honest, the server didn’t pay much attention to us or refill basic needs like water.

Not a great experience. It’s very noisy and the seating is open cafeteria style. Frankly it’s not somewhere I would go back to. When they first opened it was good food in an area that needed more restaurants. Lately the menu is rather uninspired and the ambience seems to be getting worse.

Overall loved the food it was fresh and inventive. Simple sandwiches taken up a level for sure. Was really odd though my friend ordered eggs benedict and we were told they were out of hollendais sauce (its eggs, butter and vinegar ....so easy to make, seriously?) which is bizarre for a brunch spot. We had a very nice waitress but clearly was overloaded... we waited a long time for coffee and a long time for food and then had dirty dishes sitting in front of us for at least 10 minutes while other staff just walked around and didn’t check on us at all. We had to flag down the waitress and waited another 10 minutes to pay....but then the 20% was included?? You can’t do that if you are mot staffing properly. Although the food and coffee was delicious the experience makes me think twice before i would go back there.

The staff were all lovely - kind, attentive (but not overly so), prompt. My drink was delicious - I ordered a negroni. My only disappointment there was in the size - the pour was not overly generous, shall we say. I'd never been to the Commons before so I was surprised that it was actually quite noisy inside. We had a party of 8 and it was nearly impossible to hear the conversation of people sitting 2 seats down from me. This would be a perfect place for a smaller group, and a larger one as well, if a little noise doesn't bother you.

Best fish and chips I’ve ever had; batter was light and crispy, plus the fish was very moist

I love the food, location and service at the Commons. The only flaw is how loud it gets and can be difficult to carry on a conversation with someone sitting 3' away.
