Nice neighborhood place, creative drinks and ok food. The more negative factor was the service. We were there on a Sunday evening and they had a good crowd....but only two wait staff and a manager who was doing her best to fill in everywhere. So service was very slow! Hard to order things and then the wait to get them was long. Making things worse was that our waiter was obviously new and not trained very well. A plus was that the busboy was excellent! He was everywhere: bringing food, backing up the bartender and clearing plates. The happy hour menu is a deal so we will probably try it one more time and hope that they've worked out the staffing levels.
Food was so-so -- not much flavor; too much sugar in vegetables. Bland. Room is tuned to a loud din even with few customers. Very friendly and knowledgeable service, but overall not a good value. Might be ok since it's nearby but the price point simply isn't justified by the food or the setting.
Pretty cute place. Staff was nice. Octopus is tough and overdone. But the best usable were to die for. We didn’t eat much, just a Glass if wine and two apps. Definitely not a warm and cozy place...more industrial eats sort place. Doesn’t make you want to stay and linger but an overall
Nice place for a bite to eat.
It was lovely!
We thought the noise level was pretty high; the ambience lacking; and the service very slow. We also thought the food was very good, and fairly priced.
nice place. down to earth. yummy. chill. good for every day meal!
Service was very good, timely and professional. A little noisy but service makes up for it
Mediocre food. Poor service.
Waitress was terrible! She took 15+ minutes to get our drinks, then forgot to put our order in, then gave some of our items to another table, we had to ask 3 times to other staff members where they were, and wait even longer for those. Just overall terrible service.
Food was great, service slow
Would go back. But it was very noisy and the place was half full. Waitress could not hear my order.
Great happy hour menu!
Extremely Slow service, very loud, mediocre food
Disappointing! We’ve been going since Commerson opened. Hamburger meh, margarita bad, service very meh, noisy and won’t return again.
We continue to love this place. From the great food options, to the very friendly management and team, it's a great experience overall.
Thank you Joe for your kind words and continued support!
Really poor service. They don’t have the basic service mentality. The server pretty much disappeared after bringing out the main meal. My water glass was empty for at least 15 minutes and I had to get the water from a busboy instead. The server was too lazy to put the dish in front of the right guest. Instead, she left it in front of me and asked us to sort it out (literally stood there and just stared at me while asking me to sort it out). Oh, no steak knife for the steak either. Asked me to continue to use my dirty / used utensils (which I can live with) but at least bring me the proper utensils for the meal... And they misplaced check (with my credit card) and had to wait even longer for them to find it.
Food: i had their fish “sea bass”. It was not good... It was improperly seasoned. Or it had gone bad. Either way I had couple bites and left the rest untouched and definitely did not get it to go. It was a bad dish. Server didn’t say anything while clearing out our dish either.
I do not recommend this place.
Food was delicious. Highly recommend the scallops, branzino, short rib and Brussel sprouts. Nice server, easy parking. Great spot close to LACMA.
The cheese plate was borderline inedible and the ceviche tasted off. The fish may have gone bad. Not sure.
We were going to have an entire meal here but decided to cut bait. We paid $100 for our cheese, ceviche, and 3 drinks (2 cocktails and 1 mocktail). We left and finished our dinner at Republique. It was sad because it's so close to our house, but at this moment in time, in this town, in this area, and at these prices, they really need to step it up. Lastly, 80% of their seating doesn't have backs on the chairs. Republique is similar (65%?), but we're willing to suffer it out for the quality of food.
Vegan and gluten free waffle was a amazing!!!!!!
Great menu and prices, super nice staff. Great drinks, Food good, a bit spicy for my taste - never had Bolognese with heat before! Server was amazing, music a bit too loud, but were older :(
Not memorable. The food was only decent, the decor/atmosphere nothing special.
this was the 4th or 5th time at Commerson. Waited for 10 minutes before a server arrived. Place was not crowded. Upon arriving the server wanted to get on with ordering food....never mind the drinks. Informed the server of the situation. The manager...assume manager...came over and apologized and we seemed to get back into a comfortable meal. Food was good, as it always has been. Hard to recommend but will, and hope the service improves.
Ordered seared scallops and loaded baked potato and both exceeded my expectations. Both were very delicious! The service was nice and it wasn't too crowded during our visit. Somewhat of an expensive place but nothing that would break the bank. Would definitely visit again.
Slow service and average food.
My party had an excellent experience at Commerson. We are local regulars and having been going since they opened. Over time the restaurant started to go down hill and we had several meals that were not up to our standards. But happy to say now that they have a new GM, Rachel, and she is doing things to make Commerson amazing again. Thank you for your attentiveness Rachael. We will be coming back frequently and can not say enough good things about your level of hospitality. I would highly recommend Commerson!
Good, quiet place for brunch on a Sunday. Good food. Great truffle fries.
Found this place online. My group was looking for a nice place with good food, welcoming and slightly upscale atmosphere and we were thrilled with what we found. Our server made great recommendations for food and wine, the food came super quick and everyone enjoyed each dish. We will come again anytime.
Just really poor service. One course took 1hr 45mins and we eat pretty fast. Booked a table outside and nobody even tried to set one up - they just say us inside without an apology.
There has been a shift in the management /chef.
The menu no longer includes the waffles which were the best thing on the menu! Also their bottomless mimosa policy has changed and does not allow you to switch up flavors like they used to.
Food was excellent. Waiter service could have been better. Seemed like the person really hated their job.
I’ve been coming here since they first opened, through staffing and menu changes, and it continues to be my favorite local place. Brunch with bottomless bellinis? Check! Fun bartenders and friendly servers? Check! Yummy reasonably priced meals? Check! Yeah it can be a little loud (bad acoustics and people cheering for sports) but overall it’s the coolest neighborhood restaurant in the area.
Dinner is always a good time, but I like to pop by the bar to see what magical concoctions Chase or David have come up with. They do a nice happy hour too.
Went there for happy hour. Wine selection is great, food is amazing. Great experience altogether.
Too noisy, poor service, we had to constantly look for our server who was MIA!
It was intolerably loud and the service was quite slow. Would not go back.
Good local place with basic menu.
Great value and service
We love Commerson. It’s not fussy. It’s not pretentious. But time after time the food, cocktails and service are outstanding
I'm not sure of it was just us, but the drink we ordered was the strongest drink I've had in a long time, way stronger than anything I would anticipate for a cocktail with dinner. It was tasty, though! It was a shared drink, with a tropical test. I ordered the pork chop and it was divine. Even the broccolini accompanying it was delish. My partner ordered the famed shrimp and chorizo burger, which was spicy and satisfying. We ordered the kale salad as a starter which was tasty, but oversalted. And I love salt. The carrot cake for dessert, with a small scoop of creamy cheesecake ice cream next to it, was a perfect finish. Overall, great food. The service could use some refreshment, as it really wasn't on point with the food. I don't require too much at my meal, but I think it's reasonable to be checked on periodically, especially after receiving your plate. I would still go back!
My friend and I had, admittedly, a lot of requests for our server. She was so patient and polite and courteous. The manager came to our table several times to see how we were and to see if we needed anything. She also was patient and polite and courteous. The food was delicious. Nice space. Will return.
We have gotten a lot of take-out from Commerson in the past and decided to try dining in. It was quite noisy, but they sat us away from the large group, and we didn't have to shout to one another over in our little side table, which was great. The ambience is relaxed and cool, the food is delicious, the service is excellent, and parking is easy. Highly recommend this restaurant.
