Overall a great experience. The aesthetic of the space is lovely and the service was excellent. I removed a star because many of the menu items we wanted to try were sold out by the time we arrived for our 7:45pm reservation. But what we did eat was really delicious! We look forward to returning...earlier in the evening next time.

This place is amazing. I love the different, creative dishes. Certainly worth going to as opposed to a Well known chain restaurant. Expense but well worth it. The speakeasy alleyway was great.

Ate on the street patio under the stars. Still going through teething issues, I am sure things will improve in due course. Everyone tried their best given the pandemic situation

This was our first time back since Stage 3 openings of restaurants and we were so happy to return.

Orillia has been in desperate need of a top of its class restaurant and we finally have it.

The service, food, ambiance, and wine choices are fabulous.

Hats off to the 2 fine gentlemen that own and operate this place. You’ve gone above and beyond anything I have experienced outside of Toronto.

May you continue to provide excellent dishes for us all to savour!

Delightful setting, very good service and fine food. Would like to see a better salad selection, a crisp green salad is always a great starter, simple with a nice dressing. We enjoyed our experience and will certainly come again!

The steak was great. The veggies were a bit charred. I didn’t like that the basic suggested tip was 18%.

Fantastic, delicious food and impeccable service. We were attended to promptly yet never felt rushed. Really great, friendly service. Will definitely be going back to try the rest of the menu, everything looked great passing by.

Ordered burger and steak sandwich, both delicious. I also enjoyed the Edmund Fitzgerald drink - great name for a local Orillia cocktail. Enjoyed dining in the Alleyway - overall a great experience!

We went for the Lobster night with two friends, part of 'See you on the Patio', last Friday. The street ambience was great, service was great, and the food was wonderful! All four of us highly recommend The Common Stove!

Wonderful ambiance in covered alleyway (think France). Service is excellent-friendly, attentive but not intrusive. Pricey for Orillia, but offers extensive wine and beer lists I haven’t found elsewhere. Food is fresh and well presented. I gave a lower than 5 score for the food as I wasn’t blown away by the Cornish hen for the price. It was okay, just not great. Overall I would definitely recommend and we will be back.

Incredible experience on the patio here! Love the alleyway for outdoor dining. Incredible food! We loved the oysters, beans and steak & fries. The espresso martinis were to die for. So happy we decided to come here!

We had the steak and fries and shared the side of mushrooms. For dessert we shared the wild Ontario blueberry pavlova, and a few cocktails (pineapple tapache and beers). Everything was cooked perfectly. I'd order the exact meal again.
Service was great - didn't interrupt too much, and good banter. Even the Canadian salt and in house made ketchup was yummy.
Very clean, and the staff wore masks - thank you!we thoroughly enjoyed our first COVID date night out on the Speakeasy patio.

3 items on the menu for breakfast----'breakfast for 2, breakfast for 4 or cauliflower', which I get for opening up after the pandemic, but seriously.....steak and eggs for two included a 16oz steak with two eggs and one biscuit for 60!!
A little pricy and the portion share wasn't ideal.
Hopefully things improve......
