Commonwealth, located in Burbank, is a tapas-style restaurant that serves plates with a global flair. Located among the major chain restaurants, they strive to provide the ultimate culinary experience using the small-plate genre to allow patrons to sample a wide variety of dishes in a single visit. The menu, which features menu options from all over the world, are designed to bring all visitors together through the enjoyment of unique dishes and great drinks. Diners can sample entrees from the Raw Bar, where they'll discover pink snapper carpaccio and albacore scoops; the Land options that include nueske bacon and Hudson Valley duck confit; or Commonwealth's sea options that deliver steamed mussels, seafood risotto and shrimp dumplings. Vegans will also find a wealth of salads from which to choose from including golden beets and arugula and truffle mushroom risotto salads. Tables are limited, so reservations are strongly recommended.

                                                Not real happy with Commonwealth or OpenTable. The last two times I've made reservations through OpenTable for the Commonwealth everything went through fine. Even recieved reminders for my plans. Only to show up and the restaurant be closed. These attempts were months apart. But still left us searching for an alternative. Happy camper, I am nit.

                                                They probably should have had this back deck open well before the pandemic. Though not quite the same ambiance, it still did the trick and we really enjoyed our dinner.

                                                Low score for ambiance because it is outside dining so how high can I really go? Don't be fooled by outside appearance, this place is legit.

                                                The food at Commonwealth is great - it's definitely a hidden gem. You would not guess that a little storefront next to a gas station would turn out such a delicious and varied menu. They have done a great job adjusting to covid requirements and made their small parking area as nice as possible. Hope they can stay in business!

                                                It was a nice romantic evening. They catered to our specialty needs quite well. I wouldve liked a bit more knowledge of the menu from the wait staff & maybe the restaurant concept. Overall it was a good evening. They've done a great job under Covid guideline circumstances.

                                                While the bistro feeling that you normally have when dining inside, the outdoor set-up necessary during the pandemic was quite reasonable with adequate spacing. Congrats to The Commonwealth for coming up with a decent work-around

                                                The food and service were both excellent. Ambiance is hard-they moved all the tables to the parking lot in the back and all things considered I think that it was pretty good. They maybe could have used some additional decor to make it more inviting but that's really splitting hairs. And they obviously have no control over the neighbors. The service was top notch-no complaints there. The food was all very delicious. A little pricey but worth it I think. It was all small plates and better for sharing which is a bit of an issue right now if you aren't going with people you live with. The quality of the ingredients was excellent. The wine list is tight but very good. Overall we had a really nice time and would definitely go again.

                                                My daughter found this restaurant and another girlfriend and my daughter and I decided to test it out. We weren't quite sure when we drove up as the outside was dark, one of our company was very skeptical but we relied on how the menu had sounded and forged ahead. The service was excellent; caring, professional and happy people helping us get settled in to the outdoor space. I loved the sizes of the portions, plenty but not loaded down so much that we couldn't enjoy and share all our plates. The food was clean, delicious and interesting but not too exotic to relax and enjoy a darn good meal. Thank you for being open during this tough period, it was worth driving from Palm Springs to eat your delicious food.....the lardon citrus salad and the lamb chops were as good as they could be......Jessica, Daisy and Rickie

                                                Came here for our anniversary and was not disappointed. Was recommended to come here by a friend and now I’m recommending others. This place has incredible food! It made it such a wonderful evening and one I won’t forget.

                                                A little ambiance music would be wonderful in the yard. Not required but would be lovely.

They claimed short staffed but the service was right on ....they did made sure that every dish was to perfection , no hovering no frills just good service and food.

                                                Best pandemic dinner I’ve had yet!! Their outdoor dining layout is wonderful! It’s in their back parking lot with very distanced tables and fans for airflow. The food was just as good as always (which is spectacular!!) and the service was fantastic. It was such a lovely evening on every level and I hope to be back soon 😊

                                                2nd time in two weeks and another great experience! Same great Commonwealth experience that you get and expect in the restaurant. They may want to consider keeping this option when we all get to go back inside as they have done a really great job or transforming their parking spaces behind the restaurant to resemble a garden of sorts. Crew taking great care to wear masks and deliver food safely and are pulling double duty making drinks and serving. Outstanding job and greatly appreciated.

                                                Great service, dining in the COVID era is interesting and the restaurant took all the proper precautions. Started with the octopus/brussels sprouts-delicious. Fried Chicken was next and great, not greasy at all. Least favorite was the pork belly dish- the meat and grits were delicious, the maple collards as part of dish were meh. Also tried the chili garlic pasta with shrimp/scallops- good flavor.

                                                Commonwealth has been one of our favorite hidden gems to go for special occasions and special date nights and we were sad when we heard in-dinning was not available due to Covid-19, but when we found out they opened patio dinning we were ecstatic and couldn't wait to dine outside. The food quality, service, was beyond expectation and we were very pleased with out first out door dinning experience and can't wait to dine with Commonwealth again!
