From the decor to the food, a great place for an afternoon snack. Cocktails were also creative and tasty.

Food was a huge missed opportunity to develop good flavors. Looking at the menu I thought there were a lot of good options, we ordered 4-5 dishes to share and we were not impressed. Drinks tasted amazing, maybe they should put at least half the effort they put into making a delicious drink into their food flavors.

I went on Monday, Veterans Day. It was unusually quiet. So I enjoyed it!

The place looks amazing! But the menu was weak as hell! Very little to pick from. I ordered Original old fashion and it was probably the worst thing I’ve ever had. I then asked the waitress if I could have a regular old-fashioned and she had no idea what I was talking about. After it was all said and done every person at dinner that night after spending $300 was still extremely hungry and extremely unsatisfied.

This is our first time to the restaurant and we were very pleasantly surprised. We got to pick to sit either inside or the firepit table, so we opted for the firepit table. Server was friendly with a lot of personality but not over bearing. Everything we ordered were delicious. The chicken and waffle was amazing, highly recommended. We will be back for sure.

It’s always a delightful ambience . Gorgeous fire top tables to dine on.
From the cocktail list to the exquisite foods like bone marrow and pork belly Brussel sprouts.

End the night in the speak easy Tiki bar in back is a total must do.

It was a cool atmosphere but nothing special about the food. And don't expect to have a mixed drink with vodka. Apparently their full bar does not include vodka because it is "not a refined spirit for making cocktails"

Food and waitress Amy were fantastic! Wait time for food was pretty long. Almost 45 min after ordering. We weren’t in a hurry so it was ok.

Great food, great ambiance, friendly service. One of the go-to places for brunch. I am sensitive to saltiness, this place serves food with perfect level of saltiness. My vegetable omelette was perfectly flavored, and perfect portion.

Had a reservation scheduled for 8:45. Upon arrival, I was told by a hostess that the place was running behind on reservations, so we were free to grab a drink at the bar in the meantime. After about 20 minutes of waiting and having to check in with a different hostess to see where things were at, we were finally seated.

Our table was directly located next to the open bar, which was extremely noisy and distracting and made any conversation difficult. Having to wait a little more than expected for a table was a hurdle, but the noise from the open bar killed the mood of the night more than anything else.

We were not greeted by any particular server for another 20 minutes. By then, it was already close to 9:30, 45 minutes after our original reservation time and we still had not placed an order. We managed to get our order in after flagging down a server and finally continue our dinner as we had hoped.

Throughout the course of our dinner, just looking around made it evident that the establishment was a bit understaffed this night. The look of frustration was apparent on the faces of other patrons and the staff themselves looked fairly stressed and flustered. I've heard great reviews about this place before and I'm sure we just came on an off night but after an experience like this, it's hard to want to come back and give Craft & Commerce another try.

Always fun to stop by here for some goodies. Highly recommend the bone marrow, half chicken, and Brussel sprouts. Sucks that the menu sometimes changes so they dont always have what you want but thats just a fun excuse to always come back.

First time and I was impressed by the service of the bartending staff and later the dinner serving team. Very attentive and welcoming. Food was pretty good. Overall, it was great experience with my friends.
