Fantastic food, large open patio area for safe, socially distanced, outdoor dining. Will definitely be back!
Good! Cute outdoor picnic tables. Service was good, attentive. Burger was quite large & rich, should have split it for two ppl. The corn dip app & octopus app were also yummy. Wasn’t a fan of the violet cocktail though, tasted like Pez.
Great spot! Love their burger and homemade icecream! The toasted coconut is the best!
Best service we have had throughout quarantine. Environment felt clean and well-sanitized and staff were incredibly friendly and hospitable. Would eat here again any night!
Experience was excellent. The food was well prepared and priced reasonably.
Everything was superb. The food was terrific, and the burger was really memorable. The cocktails were yummy; they have some very inventive options, which really appealed to our flavor profiles. Desserts were incredible and the homemade ice cream is not to be missed. Some of the best ice cream in the city. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Food was delicious, staff was friendly and helpful, clean and well spaced for covid-19 precautions.
I was very pleased with the overall handling of COVID issues. Felt very safe yet the atmosphere on the patio was pleasant and natural.
The server was friendly and attentive.
I had the smoked/grilled wings, and although the flavor was great they lacked the crusty/crunchy exterior usually found in grilled foods. The Thai peanut salad was tasty but I had a hard time finding peanuts. My husband had salmon and liked it a lot.
Great service, amazing location, fantastic food!
Commonwealth are re-entering the COVID-19 dining landscape well : keep it up !!
First night out since covid. great people however with the vibe of figuring out what eating out is in phase 2 of covid reopening. Food was good. Casual and comfortable atmosphere. Location is great.
You’re paying for the location/outdoor venue. They’re charging prices that I would expect at a higher end place with more interesting food/drink.
It was a great first-time experience. The food was great!
My husband loves their duck casselet. My stake was good. We had carrot cheese cake, which was too sweet for me. I liked coconut and pineapple sorbet combination, which gave it nice piña coladaesque flavor but my husband was a bit disappointed. Decent cappuccino.
Wonderful food and service!
Food was amazing!
Excellent service. The only thing I didn't love was the duck fat fries -- that said, I prefer skinny fries over wedge fries. Really enjoyed everything else we ordered: the grilled octopus, the mussels, roast cauliflower, and the coffee cookies n' cream ice cream for dessert.
I love the feel of the place, the atmosphere and decor is cool. Great drink menu, servers are very friendly, and the food is pretty good. But, I think it's a little pricey. If it wasn't in Kendall Square I would imagine it would be cheaper. But, definitely won't keep me from going there if I'm in the area!
Overall, the food was delicious, but the steak, which should have been the centerpiece of the meal, was a great disappointment. Parts of it were so chewy that I couldn’t eat it.
It was very nice. Thank you. I thought the Salmon Sandwich was pretty tasty. I don't recall whether or not it was served with Cole Slaw along with the duck fries, as I was very distracted, but I would think that would be a must.
Our server was wonderful and attentive. The restaurant was very accommodating to my fluctuating group size and we were sat in a lovely, quiet room, while a private event was happening on the other side of the restaurant.
Food and service was terrific. Open seating makes the noise level high when full.
I was a party of two; however, there was a larger party seated to the back of me. Because of the positioning of the table, my chair was often nudged from the wait staff serving the larger group behind me. It's probably best not to position the tables too close. To serve one table should not interfere with others.
Their special of the day, brisket grilled cheese, was phenomenal and the service was great as usual.
Too cold and drafty
Always a great experience! Excellent food and customer service.
Great table and atmosphere and a nice variety on the lunch menu. Our server was very attentive. Overall great experience.
great place with a group. nice cocktails and excellent food!
Salmon and pork entrees very good and even though the salad we ordered as an app was switched in the kitchen, we were not displeased in the slightest. Drinks menu quite extensive, with many creative ingredients in cocktails, although mine was not memorable. Liked the fact that the waiter allowed us to sample a few items to help make a choice, and he was quite personable. Good mix of Ice cream offerings with intriguing flavors, but unfortunately the texture or depth of the flavor of the 3 I tried were not impressive. Good location alongside many other restaurants in Kendall Sq. area and only wished the evening was warmer to sit outside.
Somewhat limited menu but good made from scratch whole food. We would visit again if in the area.
Commonwealth was a lovely place to catch up with friends after work. The outdoor seating was relaxing and well shaded. The food was delightful.
Great place for a business meal lunch or dinner. The food is great!
Found this on OpenTable and reserved for 5 people for lunch. Really comfortable setting and the sandwiches were amazing with fries and salad, both as sides.
Our waitress was very nice and so attentive. If I had a question and she couldn’t answer she asked and came back right away with an answer.
Great fresh menu and good drinks. Again and again.
Good healthy choices, with fresh ingredients and friendly staff. Airy and comfy I. Formal atmosphere. Perfect for lunch!
The server was slow abrupt and inattentive . The food was terrible , my colleague had the BBQ chicken sandwich and it was awful I had the kale salad with salmon cake and I had to put so much salt and also had to ask for oil and vinegar to give it taste even though it had dressing. I would never go again
This is among the greatest restaurant experiences in the Boston area. The food is inventive, delicious and always seasonal (they love to experiment, and the exuberance shines through). Most striking of all, is the amazing staff. They are fun, generous, and the service is perfect -- without being in any way contrived or pretentious. Commonwealth really nails the laid back vibe without compromising excellence where it counts.
Although Commonwealth is still good, I prefered it before. The menu isn't that different, but the dishes are "busier" with lots of sauces, grains, and vegetables, whereas before, they were excellently prepared and simple dishes. And the menu is much less vegetarian-friendly than in the past, although there was a special and the server indicated that the kitchen could adapt one of the regular menu dishes, but why not be more welcoming and have a vegetarian entree on the menu? Also, the tables and chairs were falling apart and the bathroom needed cleaning, which doesn't leave a great impression.
Commonwealth does offer delivery in partnership with Toast.
Commonwealth is rated 4.6 stars by 375 OpenTable diners.
