I visited The Common during Downtown Dining Week. I had the lamb shank and fregola entree. It was absolutely delicious! The flavour of the lamb was great and the grilled peppers and lemon dressing were fantastic in the fregola. I also had the warm braised cabbage and bacon starter. Again, what a great dish. The flavours of each part of... More

We made reservations: turns out they booked us in for a wrong day. The server we had at the first table while wiring for an actual table, was very nice, and good at her job. When our table was ready that waitress forgot half of my order. The drinks were good, half price wine is great on Wednesday. The food... More

As a large group we stopped by without reservations during Happy Hour and were made welcome when they opened the back room to accommodate us! The Truffle popcorn is a must try! The signature dish of chicken and waffles was an unexpected delight! Great service and cozy decor... will definitely go back for the live DJ spinning discs!

The Common hosted a "Swine and Dine" event spotlighting Alberta pork yesterday. The intimate space provided a great venue to see what a talented chef could really do. The meal started with pork tongue and cheek tacos. The pork was tasty but cool and the cilantro was muted but it was a promising first course. The salad was a smoked... More

I love the common. The decor is very nice, and the menu is updated pretty frequently. Interesting, amazing food that will suit most diets - including vegetarian options! Fun place to go for drinks, especially when they have a DJ.

Waste of an evening. Servers have zero interest in making you feel good about being there. Food is average at best, truly not worth it. So many better places than this. Would not recommend for groups, service is incredibly slow.

Was not overly impressed with this restaurant. It was ok but don't think I will go back. I thought the menu was limited and expencive for what we got. The service was good and the bar looked well stocked.

Had a business reception here with drinks and horderves. Drink were good. All the different foods were great especially the chicken and waffles, and the burgers. I would love to try a full order of chicken and waffles in future.

This is a popular venue with a great menu. We were warmly greeted, seated and served by efficient friendly staff. We really enjoyed the meals and presentation. It's modern with a tasty twist. The Halloumi Mozza Sticks, the Chicken and Waffles and Summer Squash Noodles were different and delicious. Give them a try - you'll go back! A great restaurant!

I've had chicken and waffles in many different restaurants, in many different places, and these ones rate at the top of the list. Cool hip atmosphere, great service, you can't go wrong by choosing this restaurant.
