Restauranteur Mark Bucher, who was the original creator of BGR the burger joint, (sold in 2014), and co founder of Medium Rare, brings us Community Restaurant and Lounge. A lifetime student of restaurants, Mark created Community to embody his vision for the perfect food and drink destination for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Cocktails. Dine in a mid-century modern dining room designed by architect Richard Stokes, featuring American comfort food classics.. A great spot to grab a cocktail or great wine. We feature a creative and whimsical cocktail list, developed by David Strauss, with a focus on curated spirits, fresh ingredients and punch bowls. Our affordable and approachable wine list was created by the previous wine director, at the French Laundry in Napa Valley, California.
Community is your go to place

    Donuts are dry. Food is gross. Overpriced. Unfriendly staff. Bartender is inexperienced and openly talked about how he hated working. Managers just sitting around and doing nothing. Not impressed. Avoid.

    The wait staff was pleasant but completely untrained. It took close to 40 minutes to get the appetizer with no explanation until someone complained and 2 out of 4 dinner orders were incorrect. One person had a burger because the BGR burgers are so good and said it was just so-so. All 4 of us were pretty disappointed.

    The service is slow and we arrived at 12pm and they were out of eggs. Food arrived at all different times and we had to ask for silverware. Very weird experience. The food was great!

    Wanted to have a casual bite with my son on a Saturday night. Community fit the bill. Fun interior; great music. And a menu with something for everyone. I had all day breakfast pancakes which were enormous. My son had a meatball sub. Complimentary homemade doughnut for dessert. It was fun and a good value.

    One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. I should have known what was coming when we waited at the host stand for 5 minutes before receiving any acknowledgment. I thought this would be my new favorite place but instead I will not be going back.

    Restaurant was under-staffed for restaurant week. Long wait for everything. Food not particularly special. Not worth the wait at all.
