Fantastic Wedding Dinner at a Great Location

We attended a wedding at Common Ground, and it was such a great choice! The grounds are beautiful, the building was a fine open-air dining area, and the food was very tasty.

My family and I stopped in for the Sunday brunch... quite expensive at $45.00 per person. Aside from the bread and fish, everything was awful! Tough unrecognizable meat, soggy waffles, overly seasoned soup, stale cookies, soupy chocolate mousse and undercooked custard pie. Really not worth the drive or the cost!

Since last year Common Grounds hs closed as a restaurant and it is really a shame becuase the food was good, healthy, and a beautiful setting. This is the former guava kai farms. For those of you that have traveled to Kauai years ago u will remember the guavas/art out on the highway and u could put your face it... More

There is a Sunday Brunch at Common Ground Farm run by Destination Events Hawaii. 4 of us went last week (February 2016) and have not been able to stop talking about it. The food was diverse and prepared in a sustainable and mindful way. We spent some time talking to the passionate sous Chef who inspired us further with the... More

Great Brunch with quality food and service. Me and my wife went for Sunday Brunch. It was a good experience since I am new to Kauai. We start with a great "Tulsi" tea, which was so refreshing. The food quality was good. The black bean Hummus, sweet potatoes and cold cuts were great. Service was very attentive and friendly. Makana... More

We had a wonderful evening starting with some great beverages (not big on the smoked ice cube drink), then the servers browsed the intimate crowd with delicious appetizers. We were then served a sit down meal starting with a very generous portion of Ahi sashimi and Limu Tomato salad. Followed by Fire Grilled Shrimp, heart of palm salad, sweet potato... More

We went for the Sunday brunch. They do an excellent job of displaying the brunch buffet. We loved that the dishes are made with locally sourced ingredients and everything was super fresh. The flavors were wonderful in some dishes, and not all that great in others. They especially need work on the desserts! We loved the live music! Also how... More

I used to Love Common ground, but now their hours are really limited. I think they are open only for special occasions. If it is open, enjoy as it's fresh local food.

My hosts were thrilled that Commoin Ground has recently restarted its Sunday brunches, which I understand were suspended a while back. When we went it was very quiet, with only three other tables occupied, and I suspect that football (both the 49ers and the Seahawks were playing that day) and golf meant that people were glued to the TV.
