    Our favorite when stopping in Savannah every 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately we were told that a new executive chef is taking the reins and menu will change. We (I) have always come for the Pineapple Situation. It was introduced to us when the last new young chef came and even greeted us at the table. The dish could beat Bobby Flay! Best of Luck with the new menu we will try it but it will be hard to top the last menu and Chef.

    Justin our server was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and special items and drinks. Craft cocktails were interesting and tasty. Food was nicely presented and full of flavor. Oysters were clean and tasty with several sauces to top them. Pork belly app was yummy and had a great crust and was accompanied by a variety of tasty items including cornichons, cheese and pickled peach. All in all very creative and high quality experience

    In town for one night and decided to try Common Restaurant. I was offered on Open Table their Bartop Prix Fixe dinner. Perfect for anyone, who prefers to sit at the bar. I decided to give it a try. It was a remarkable experience, great food/drink pairing and value for the price. The bartender (Ro?) was very knowledgeable and professional. He added to the experience. Overall, a friendly staff and fun atmosphere in a casual setting!

    We came to eat with a group of 7, for which we had made a reservation. The group before us was still seated when we arrived, but left shortly after. We waited about 5 min past our reservation and the manager came over with champagne for all and apologized for the wait. Obviously, it was a none issue, but we were so impressed with his kindness and the way he ran his restaurant. Food was outstanding, service was fabulous (Tricia) and drinks were great. Will definitely be back!

    The food and service were exceptional. We had the signature dish...the beef short ribs over corn bread and creamed collards. It was possibly the best dish I've had in several years. The crab cakes were also excellent. Brittany was our server and did an outstanding job. Our only complaint was the room temperature in the restaurant. It was so cold that it made it hard to enjoy the meal. Everyone around us was putting on jackets, if they had them. Those who didn't have jackets were visibly uncomfortable and were discussing it among the tables. We asked that the staff turn down the air, but we saw no improvement...sadly, after such a great meal, we couldn't wait to leave the restaurant. Aside from the temperature, I would have easily given 5 stars.

    Ambience and food quality and selection are the reasons for this my second dinner here, and Common didn’t disappoint. It is now on my short list of favorites in Savannah. Everyone loved the ambience, and the diverse choices on the menu. My rating would be 4.5 stars if the app would allow. The only disappointment was that one steak was overcooked. The Server did the right thing and brought a new steak, but that one was overcooked as well. Regardless, our party of five had a lovely meal and a fantastic dining experience.

    Light on the pours and heavy on the spices…great atmosphere and exceptional service. Some choices were outstanding such as the short ribs and hazelnut chocolate mouse but the vegetarian pasta was way too spicy and the oysters Rockefeller sauce although delicious overpowered the oysters. Do not order wine before asking the price per glass. All in all, we’ll be back and be better informed of what is excellent.

    Good server and service but …. Food - oysters had a lot of grit (we eat oysters in a lot of restaurants and grit is infrequent), crab Benedict dish was dry and had way too much bread with dry breaded crab and little flavor. Shrimp and grits were OK with 5 good sized shrimp but dish was highly spiced and salty. Small wine pours. Expensive meal for food and portions. Not a repeat dining experience in Savanna for us.

    The service was a real highlight, from the hostess to our server. The food was outstanding, especially the crab caprese and pineapple situation. The only potential negative is that my margarita was expensive and forgettable. Still, would definitely come back!

She remembered me/my party by name and made me feel so welcomed :) Britnee was our server and took great care of us not only in recommendations but also being engaging and attentive to the needs of the table. Would definitely recommend on service and food quality and if you are running late, just let Tina know Mr LeBlanc said it is OK

    Excellent food at a great location in the heart of Broughton Street. Steps from shopping, theaters, and nightlife. Pacing of drinks, apps, and dinner was slow for the US, and not all food arrived together. Excellent food, however, for everyone. Restaurant was clean and chic, if a bit noisy.

    Ordered steak (medium) and eggs the steak was purple sent it back the one that was brought out was still to red my fried eat it as I couldn’t. No much to choose from for apps at brunch if you don’t care for oysters. The pork on the cheese plate was out of this world. Espresso martini was sneaky good. I was with a party of 8 everyone else loved their food. I tried the shrimp and grits very good, eggs Benedict was good I didn’t care for the biscuits.

    Restaurant is nicely located in the heart of old Savannah. A nice old style restaurant. We arrived on time and was seated at once. Tricia our server was delightful and helpful. My wife had oysters said they were fresh and tasty. I had the lamb shank over risotto. Cooked perfectly with delicious flavors. My wife had the shrimp and grits which was also good.
