    The experience and food were fantastic! Cassie was a perfect waitress. She guided us through the menu and made us aware of what we could eat with my party’s food restrictions with ease. She was very attentive and knowledgeable!

    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!

    The menu at the restaurant was different than what was listed on their website. The items we ordered came out different than described. The food we ordered was described differently on the menu. Overall our experience was good but not great.

    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.

    Nice restaurant, will visit again. Unfortunately they were out of what I wanted to order and with some dietary restrictions, it was hard to find a substitute. It is quite loud, I had a hard time conversing with my older mother.

    Great place for a date night or special occasion. The foccacia was fantastic, as was the "Interrupted Touchdown Dance" cocktail. My husband had the bacon infused old fashioned and loved it. The chicken was amazing, as was the smashburger. Potatoes were perfectly crisp and salty. Can't wait to go back!

    Food was sub par- one of the worst Caesar salads I have ever had. The miso triggered me into 2 days of migraine headaches. Friend ordered steak- they cut it up in the kitchen- instead of bringing him his steak in one piece. He wasnt happy about that. the Service was also not great. The waiter initially took my drink order, didnt acknowledge my friend or take my friend’s order. Didnt bring ketchup w/ fries- asked twice and ketchup never came. Will not be going back- too expensive for food that just isn’t great.

    We enjoyed Common Ground Berry Hill and will definitely be back. Our server Michelle was great. Perfect combination of professional and friendly. The atmosphere was good. The beef tartare and Miso Caesar salad were great. My 6oz filet was good I just wish it had a bit of a sear to it. I am happy a good restaurant opened at this location after the Yellow Porch closed. It was a favorite of mine. I think Common Ground may be a new favorite.

    I recall this restaurant when it was a neighborhood staple- The Yellow Porch. Common Ground has the vibe to make it a similar go-to great neighborhood restaurant. The decor has been completely changed and updated, the service was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent. The menu not extensive but, something for everyone to try- we had a vegan in our party who had pasta with a mushrooms sauce and it was delicious. The prices were good for the quality of the food. We will go again!

    My server was wonderful. There is an unpleasant sewage like smell in the building. It is very off putting. The focaccia bread was such large serving and was drenched in oil. My salad cabbage salad was fairly limp and tasteless, and the croutons were very hard. My friend enjoyed her swordfish and her sorbet very much. It was a pleasant night, and service was very good. But, I'm afraid the food, as compared to other great local restaurants, just did not come up to par. And, that smell as you walk in the door was just so unappetizing. I will try one more time to see if things are better. I want you to succeed, but I was not terribly pleased with the food at my first visit.
