    I'm a big supporter of Muss & Turner and Local 3. Was meeting a client for dinner who lives in Roswell and was looking for something between me (Vinings) and Roswell. Saw the review in the AJC, and picked Common Quarter. What a surprise when I saw Ryan Turner walking towards the kitchen. Told my client order whatever sounds good as these guy know what they're doing in the kitchen. Great food and great service. Great experience as always.

    Very nice experience. Many things on the menu that I want to try. That's a good sign. We liked our dinners very much and the service was great. Some reasonably priced very nice wines by the glass. We were there on a Friday night and we generally avoid noisy, crowed places on weekends. The restaurant was filled and vibrant but not unpleasantly crowded and noisy. We'll probably return this week and sit at the bar which seemed very inviting. There's a partially curtained off extra dining area off to the left which we didn't like the looks of.

    My wife, who had dined here 3 times before, and I had an excellent dinner. My wife loved her trout dinner and I loved the sweet potato soup as my appetizer. The pork entrée was very good though not as tender as comparable pork chop dinners. It was very tasty though and earned a 4 state rating.

    The restaurant recently got a new sign and is now more visually appealing than before (plus easier to find)! The food continues to be worth the visit: everyone typically enjoys the 'Yesterday's soup', the '"look west" Burger', I recently tried and liked their 'Chef's morning after' dish. The service is always friendly, true to their claim about providing warm hospitality from the South. It's a real treat to have a nearby restaurant in East Cobb that serves a good brunch and feel confident that my experience will be a good one.

    The food is wonderful, the service is fantastic, and the drinks are great! So wonderful to have an excellent restaurant right in our own neighborhood instead of having to go inside the perimeter. In fact, some of our ITP friends actually come out here to meet us for dinner because it's such a wonderful experience and the food is fresh, often locally sourced, and extremely well prepared. We eat here frequently and it is consistently an excellent experience! I highly recommend Common Quarter!

    The Big Green Egg BBQ Pork sandwich was outstanding, as were the PEI mussels. Manifesto Lake County Cabernet is a gem. Wine prices a bit high; food prices reasonable. Next time will be the half price wine night.

    Had hoped that the food would be as good as the hype, but found it pretty average. Expected grilled eggplant appetizer to be hot and crispy, but it was cold and limp. The cod entree was good and satisfying, but lacking any real interest. Bartender got the beer order wrong, but quickly sent a replacement, and the server got an appetizer order wrong, again quickly fixed. And we did a free dessert as an apology. The Cocacola cake was the highlight of the meal, so don't skip on dessert. Hopefully with a little fine tuning this will become a neighborhood gem.

    Our first trip to Common Quarter was disappointing at best. The value for what we received was just not up to par. I went in with high expectations but left with little to brag about. The service was exceptional, I must say, but the meal was underwhelming.

    We decided to - finally! - check out Common Quarter during Cobb County Restaurant Week. As our daughter had just returned from a trip to Europe, we wanted to have a small celebration dinner. Our experience could not have been better. All three of us loved the prix fixe meal and each of the courses was prepared perfectly, plated skillfully and tasted delicious. We would describe our meal as "comfort food with an edge". We can't wait to return. Many thanks for a memorable evening.

    We had heard mixed reviews on Common Quarter. We were all VERY pleasantly surprised! We visited during Cobb Restaurant Week. and 5 of the 6 of us partook of the 3 course special. It was delicious - I only hope they have the same food on their regular menu. The sauteed calamari had us begging for more bread to soak up the broth; the trout was nothing short of spectacular. The 2 negatives were handled quickly and thoughtfully; a waiter came to the table to apologize for taking two of our appetizers to a different table delaying our service - and the over cooked pork chop was quickly replaced and satisfied it's owner who quickly said "I'd love to come back here".. a difficult complement to obtain from that particular foodie.

    Common Quarter was recommended to me since we just moved to the area. The location is in a strip mall which wouldn't necessarily attract me. However...the atmosphere was nice, the service was impeccable, and the food was amazing! I had the chicken dish with polenta and mushrooms. Perfect portion, nice and tender, wonderful flavor! We will definitely go back again. Their menu changes as the Ga seasons change. Worth going!

  • Common Quarter--Not Good

    The best thing about Common Quarter was the service. We had an attentive server for our anniversary dinner. The food was terrible. My wife and I are not big eaters so we split the Lump Crab Quesadilla and the Lobster Risotto. Both were salty and the seafood appeared to have been frozen. The texture was not that of fresh seafood. At Common Quarter, I guess that farm to table means something I don't understand. I was intrigued by the huge map of St. Simon's on the wall. At least I could dream of good seafood....

    Common Quarter is fantastically consistent even though the menu changes regularly and is seasonal. There's always something new to try, it is well thought out and varied. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and seem happy to work there. Great attention to detail in the decor as well. Chris, the managing partner, provides such a personal experience for each diner - for all of these reasons, I'm always ready to return as soon as I'm finished eating.

    Went this weekend with my wife and had mixed reactions. We started with the smoked chicken wings that were pretty good and a $6 basket of not so good stale bread. Our main courses pretty much followed suit - my wife had the grown up grill cheese - which was amazingly good however the less then impressive mac-n-cheese (which we were up charged $3 for) was a major disappointment. I had the kielbasa with tator tots which I enjoyed. Overall we walked away with a mediocre experience.

    Second visit to Common Quarter. Food was acceptable but not spectacular. Quesadillas were too rich for both myself and my wife. Shrimp tacos were pretty good. Layout of restaurant and how they use tables is less than ideal. Two tops are on the side only. We were seated in one and we felt banished. Restaurant was maybe only 25% full. Service was unspectacular but acceptable. A little more affordable than some of the "higher end" East Cobb restaurants but I would have expected more. Will probably go again (not not real soon) -- probably when I want a burger and want to have one of their's or I want to sit on a patio. But I'll go to one of their competitors more often.

    I found this on OT and was surprised I'd not heard of it before. For those familiar with the area, I would say it is comparable to Seed, with fresh, locally grown, farm to table ingredients. And the menu changes seasonally, if not daily. Everything we had was fantastic and we'll definitely be adding this one to the rotation. LOVE that this area is starting to get some great restaurants. It's been too long!

    We arrived 15 prior to our reservation and instead of welcoming us the host looked annoyed. We were sent to the bar. The barman and drinks were great. Having been at another restaurant close to this one with a.similar concept I had higher expectations. For us going to a restaurant is not just in order to eat. We like to have an experience and this one was not one of them. The waiter was as unexciting as my curry vegetables. My husband trout was superb though. The dessert...I left half of it. You could taste the freshness of the ingredients, no question about it, but no passion for making them shine. I might have had the wrong expectations.

    My husband and I ate at Common Quarter for the first time the other night and had a great experience. The restaurant has a great feel to it - casual yet classy at the same time. Our server was so helpful and knowledgeable and personable, too! We ended up splitting a bunch of appetizers instead of ordering entrees. We wanted to try a bunch of different things. We had the watermelon and heirloom tomato salad, the lamb bacon, thai crab cake (which was a special), and the creamed kale. The crab cake & the kale were killer, but the lamb bacon was a little rich for me.
