    Food had promise. Would consider returning now that I better understand the menu. Pork roast was very fatty, which turned both my wife and I off. Appetizers and dessert was great.

    Really nice experience. Service was excellent. Attentive but not obtrusive. Not the least expensive but the quality was in keeping with the price. Loved the room in particular the open feeling. Not at all jammed together like I feel in many fine dining establishments. Really nice menu with a strong emphasis on proteins which I expected. We will definitely return

    We had been waiting a long time to try this restaurant. We finally had an excuse to go & it was not everything we had dreamed of. The service was painfully slow to begin with. We arrived at 5:45PM with show tickets for 7:30PM, we assumed this would be more than enough time to eat without being rushed, & enjoy the food. However we waited to get drinks, and then did not see our server again from about 20 mins. We ordered a variety of things, the ribeye to share, the halibut to share, side carrots, fries and celery root. Our food did not arrive until 7:10, at which point we were then rushing to finish & make it to the show for opening doors. I will say however that the halibut was cooked phenomenally. The whole dish was amazing. Sadly we asked for the steak to be cooked medium, as I am pregnant. It was rare (almost blue rare) at best. I ate a piece off the end which was more cooked, it was tasty, but disappointing I could not enjoy it with my husband. The fries & carrots were great! The sticky toffee pudding (which we ordered to go) was also fantastic. I wouldn't say it was a poor dining experience, but I think to fully enjoy it you should go with no other plans in mind.

    Darcy met us at the door and made us feel welcome and special! Sitting at the Chef's Counter was a treat and created the perfect ambience for our celebration. Zoe, our waitperson was exuberant, efficient and did not intrude on our time together. The smoking old fashioned was delicious and impressive. The Burrata app, squash pasta and silky pistachio chocolate pie were all so flavourful! And Chef Ben? Of course he was delightful and between his food and company it was a perfect experience! Thank you Common Stove!

    We sat in the alley way expecting the wall to still be up to block the wind but without it, it was too cold even with the heaters. Possibly a partial partition? The steaks we both ordered has way too much muscle/sinew to keep it enjoyable even though cooked as requested. We have been a few times before, but this time our expectations were not met nor exceeded - we found our company (Table of 4) and the ambiance exceeded the food on this night which was disappointing.

    The steak was amazing, my husband and I split it. We ordered the fries which were also amazing. I do wish you offered a baked potato or mashed with your meals. Fries are great but I much prefer a potato. Other than that, we will definitely come again and refer our friends, as well.

    Common Stove never disappoints. The menu, while not extensive, is absolutely amazing. The hand made burgers were cooked to perfection and the pasta filled with Squash was delicate and paired so well with the walnuts and raisins in butter sauce. We ca. Ot ever leave without a serving of the Sticky Toffee pudding that we have to share between 2 of us! We will be back soon!

    The food is exceptional! Squash agnolotti will keep me coming back. Burrata was divine. Flavour of the steak is incomparable. Amanda our waitress was a delight, always smiling and checked in with us at the right time. Owners are on hand helping and so much fun to watch the kitchen staff prepare the meals.

    Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful when it came to explaining the menu. The food was absolutely delicious and the drinks were amazing as well! The place could use a bit more decor on the inside to help it feel more cozy but that shouldn’t stop anyone from checking it out, the food is well worth it!
