Food and service was amazing. Only downside of the patio was the vehicle noise. Awesome spot!
We LOVE the Common!
The food is always fantastic, the beer selection is innovative and local and the service can’t be beat! They always make us feel welcome and they do a great job of making us feel safe with their COVID protocols.
Tasty food and excellent service. The vibe felt right (even in the midst of a pandemic).
Thank you! Would keep coming back. Great vibe and great music.
The common retains everything I loved about it before pandemic restrictions. A fantastic venue if you want to feel safe but still get out of the house.
Our server Emma was super personable and added to the experience on top of delicious cocktails and appy’s!

Beautiful evening dining at the Common; great cocktails.. vodka on the rocks with twist of lemon and the classic Caesar made to perfection... green salad is not just a green salad..different and tasty; and for our mains we went for the classics, fish and chips and chicken and waffles. Tons of Food ! Prepared to perfection; everything was hot and fresh out of the oven. Dessert.. sticky pudding .. perfect end , warms, sweet, buttery and very sticky.

Had a great night at The Common. Ambiance was calm on arrival. As the night went on, the DJ boosted the energy. Reece was pleasant, knowledgeable and patient. Had Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Wings, Brassica Salad, Truffle Popcorn. Everything was on point. Drinks were impeccable. Blueberry Pie, Mojitos and more. Thanks for a great experience.

What a fantastic place to go to with a group of friends or on a date night. The service was great and the aesthetic and ambiance is spot on. Not to mention the food is delicious. I was particularly impressed with the variety of gluten-free options available. I was able to eat more than just a salad lol!!

Staff was friendly. Good food but, mains came out before our appetizer. I served all the wine to my guests. 30 years in food service, but now I’m retired!

Excellent craft beers on rotation.
The menu was redone by a new chef.
I enjoyed the pulled pork poutine, lots of flavour, perfect fries.
The service was great and responsive.
It took a bit long to get the food at lunch time.
Hi JDizzy! Thank you so much for the kind review and recommendation! We are glad to hear you enjoyed our craft beer selection and new menu.

For any additional feedback or comments please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you! :) -Nicole
The menu at the Common has something for everyone; vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, plus many meat-based options. I am never disappointed with my choice. The choice of ingredients always results in the most amazing blend of flavors. They do change the menu on a regular basis which I love. But once you find a favorite dish, you have to make sure to enjoy it before the menu changes.
The drink menu is also great with the classics cocktails and some unique offerings. And a fantastic selection of local beer.
The staff is amazing. Always very inviting and friendly. The combination of the menu and staff make this my go-to place.
