  • Inconsistent food

    I've come to realize after eating here numerous times that the heat/spice level of foods is inconsistent. I prefer low spice/heat. I've gotten the shrimp tacos a few times and the slaw is what's spicy, so I order without. This time the taco was super spicy and extremely salty. Same with the roasted broccoli. Sometimes fine and one time unedible due to heat level. The kids menu and price is what brings us here, but the chef needs to be more consistent in his use of spice. Nice atmosphere and kid friendly, but adult menu needs some work. Also got the fried chicken liver, which was recommended by staff, seemed somewhat undone and so wasn't eaten by our group. Staff should have comped the recommendation.

    Based on some reviews, we decided to try Common Quarter. We live about 45 minutes away, so this isn't a local place for us. We made a reservation, which they called to confirm, and were very professional. We were seated immediately, and our server was on top of his game. We ordered multiple appetizers, starters and entrees. A few items were overdone (about half of the pork belly in the bacon & eggs was hard as a rock), and the tots were average. The beet salad was very small given the price. The Holeman + Finch bread was great, as were the drink selections. For the entrees, the tomato soup and grilled cheese were average, nothing memorable. But the mac & cheese and the pot roast entree were incredible. Those two are worth going back for, without question. Overall it was a nice dining experience, with a very knowledgeable staff, and some good food. It may be a while before we decide to go back due to the distance, but we will go again.

    These folks know what they're doing! from delicious, mouth watering food to top notch attentive service, Common Quarter delivered. I had their burger, and it was flavorful and juicy. The fries were perfect - crispy on the outside, soft inside. My friend had their crabcakes benedict, and said it was drool-worthy.

    The pot roast was amazing. Very flavorful and like a party in my mouth and tummy. I also got the Coca-Cola wings as an appetizer. They were cooked perfectly, though I did not find the Coca-Cola base very tasty. I wish they had been cooked and or marinated in more seasoning. The service was great. Very attentive and very friendly.

    not bad food but... Service was really slow and servers were minimally attentive. Not sure if it they didn't care or if I was supposed to be so enamored by their flannel shirts and beards that I overlooked their lack of caring. BTW - host dude... if you can't manage people coming in the restaurant without being flustered, you should find another hipster gig.... Overpriced. Overhyped.

    Bar was beatiful and vintage looking. Restaurant very industrial and trendy! Bartender was very friendly and made special cocktail for me that was delicious. Love that the bar is near dining but separate. Outdoor patio has fireplace with comfortable chairs!! Awesome. Shutters hanging everywhere and worth it. Menu was perfect! Not overwhelming, but a good variety. Very clever and delicious food that tasted fresh!! Will return!

    I had very high expectations of Common Quarter as I am a huge fan of Muss and Turners. I was much less thrilled with the food here vs M&T. Our party of 6 all enjoyed their meals but to me none of the dishes quite had the "flare" I expected. Good, but maybe not what I expected.

    Hello, everyone was very friendly and we were excited to have a place close to home. Our mussel apps were tasty but when the waitress took our plates from our appetizer she took our utensils as well. She did not replace them and when our food arrived we did not have any forks, knives etc. It then took quite a while for her to check on us and our food had become room temperature at best. We ate it anyway and the flavor was pretty good. Overall, I would give it a 6 out of 10 but honestly we will go back one more time to give them another shot as they are 4 miles from our house.

    We had no idea about this restaurant until we went on open table. I had seen a small sign but did not even realize that the place was open! We live only minutes away as well! What a pleasant surprise to FINALLY have a great place to go in east Cobb. The reviews are true... it is a wonderful restaurant. The food was amazing, the drinks were wonderful and the service very friendly and great. We will be back VERY soon.

    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!

    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.

    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!
