Had a wonderful time! Cocktails were delicious, the dry rub wings were super yummy & the steak was done perfectly. They had run out of their donuts unfortunately, but everything else was great

Great, friendly service! This patio is street-side if that matters to you. They have umbrellas and lots of distancing between the tables which made us feel very comfortable. They did mention the bartender does mocktails but there wasn't a menu for it! Hopefully they'll add it in the future. Their Cobb salad was awesome as were the tacos. They do allow you to make substitutions etc. Food coming out of the kitchen was a bit slow, but we were honestly just glad to be able to finally dine out!

Nice patio. Fish tacos are great as is the Commoner chuck burger. Beer float (taster) is ok; I wasn't thrilled with the selection of beer and wouldn't order this again.

A lovely afternoon on the patio. Service was excellent and food was good! Note - the kitchen is closed between 3-4. The Commoner was very clear in letting us know this and took our order in advance of the closure. Will be back!

The food is great here, standard pub fare elevated enough to be interesting and super tasty, and coming at a reasonable price. Love their Wednesday special of $15 off a bottle of wine. Great patio space with trees. Very good service from friendly people. Would definitely recommend. Their truffle fries are to die for. Most recently I had the schnitzel which was spot on, and my partner had the commoner burger, which we both adore.

The Cobb salad was a really big let down. They forgot the chicken, …very poor salad.

Changed our reservation just before our arrival without consent (despite having booked weeks beforehand), resulting in a shortened table time and getting forced out while still eating/drinking. Clear lack of professionalism and not recommended; you’re much better off wandering Roncesvalles instead, which wasn’t overly busy

This place has the 'it' factor! The patio is well spaced, located on a cute corner , and equipped with umbrellas for shade if you should need it. The servers were accommodating and were well versed on the menu. The food was flavourful. We started with gauc. And chips along with chicken bites and the house made hot sauce (which they sell to carry home) . I much enjoyed the fish and chips the portion was hearty. Last and most important to us is that they welcomed our puppy on their patio (not an easy find in the city) .
