    Such a great choice coming here on our last night in SAV. We ordered the lamb shank and the short rib entrees. Both a bit out of our usual wheelhouse but just as delicious as promised! The cornbread is something special! We also really enjoyed the company of our waitress a fellow mama to be. I’ll definitely be recommending this spot to any friends traveling to the area. Bravo!

    Champagne butter mussels, scallops ravioli, curry shrimp and grits...all different and amazing. The fried chicken and waffles were a real treat and stole the show. Service was outstanding and the place has a cool vibe. Gotta try the spiced mule too! Becoming a favorite in Savannah.

    Frankly, we was a bit anxious on going because we thought it could be a bar trying to be a restaurant. We could not be more wrong. The food was absolutely amazing and was one of the best places we’ve found in Savannah. The service was attentive and very professionally executed. We’re definitely going back 1000% recommend to anyone looking for a new place with great food and atmosphere.

    The service was excellent. The place is adorable - funky, cool, but not over doing it. Great bar and we had a lovely table in the window - I highly recommend trying to score those window tables or an outside table on a clear day. My reason for the low food score is primarily due to one thing: pre-shucked oysters. we (stupidly at a place we did not know well) ordered 18 oysters and they were clearly pre-shucked, set in a hotel pan, and placed in a walk-in. There was no liquor in any of them bar two. The others were limp, dry, and kinda tasteless. We eat oysters weekly and I have shucked many 100's and know a fresh shucked oyster. These were not. I observed the person shucking and at the rate they were shucking it would have taken 45 mins for 18 and ours arrived in 10 minutes. I would love to love this place but...

    Jenna was excellent. She was personable, attentive and very professional. The food was good but if you order the rib dish make sure there is meat on it and not just a slab of fat. I don’t think I had an ounce of meat on it. I should have said something when I fist got it, but I just thought there would be more to it. Jenna apologized when we brought it to her attention afterwards and said she would make sure the chef checked it from now on. I paid $31 for an ounce of meat. Not acceptable in my opinion. My husband got the pineapple dish with mahi-mahi. He said it was good, but not worth the $30+ it was.

    We enjoyed Common Restaurant tremendously. The menu included many of what we might now consider classic upscale southern dishes. The seared sea scallops appetizer was exceptional, and while the sea scallops were good, the bedding of pork creamed collards in cheese sauce, Parmesan & panko was the real winner. I could have made a meal of that. I ordered the NY strip, which I know I shouldn’t have, because I like doing my own steak at home. It was average at best, but the sides of smashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, & sweet chili Brussels sprouts were outstanding.

    Seated us early for our reservation, which was great! Drinks were creative and tasty, and there is a very extensive wine list. However the scallop app was raw, but was corrected upon second attempt. The salmon was described as a medium cook, but it was over cooked and extremely dry. I didn’t bother to ask for a re-do because service was slow (although our waitress was very sweet). Asked for the raw bar menu we heard so much about and were told they were short staffed and didn’t have anyone to shuck. Overall, I wouldn’t rush back and would probably only grab a seat at the bar for happy hour. For the dinner experience I expect more.
