    I’ve been to the common stove multiple times but I found the last 2 times I have been, that more than half of the steaks have been extremely fatty or grizzly. Which is extremely disappointing as you are paying such a highprice for these steaks. I truly love this restaurant and I hope maybe they can find a resolution to having better cuts of meat. Paying $140 for a steak and half of it being inedible isn’t reasonable.

    Restaurant was beautiful and comfortable, the open kitchen was really nice. Food was delicious the quality was definitely noticeable. The server wasn’t rude by any means but hovered and talked an excessive amount that by the end we were ready to go. For the most part it was a great experience and would recommend it.

    Fabulous! Great evening. It felt like a high end Toronto restaurant. Such attention to detail is very much appreciated. The menu was inspiring! I chose a vegan dish - the turnip, as an entree. It was to challenge myself to Like turnips. Now - totally love them - a flavour filled sensation! Friends had chicken and steak, equally awesome. Very impressed overall.

    Our party of four are so glad we have discovered The Common Stove. Our experience was amazing. All four of us believe that it was the best meal we’ve ever had in a restaurant! Really. We really believe this and said it! All of the flavours and combinations of ingredients so delectable. What beautiful combinations and what a beautiful experience for the palette. Kara helped inspire our food selections with her descriptions and pointers taking our experience to the next level. This establishment takes food very seriously with a relaxed manner. Can’t say enough good things!

    My husband and I went to the Common Stove to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were met with complimentary Bubbly and warm smiles. We chose to sit at the bar to watch them cook and it was absolutely delightful to chat with the cooks while we enjoyed some of the best steaks we’ve ever had.

    Staff where friendly and plentiful. Our reservation was for 7 pm so we, unfortunately got the tail end of the roast, so while not as pink as we would have liked, it was well cooked and flavourful. Sadly our yorkshires where burnt, and the carrots overcooked. I'll bet the non burnt ones where great. The Brussels sprouts where fabulous. Restaurant is very loud. Over all , quite expensive, food was ok. Will I go back .... probably not.

    Too noisy as it’s so open. Wouid be nice to have a partitioned section. Fries too salty. Would like option for no salt. Veggies also would like option for just plain Bread pricey for one slice Scallops too pricey !!!! Steak fantastic ! Servers amazing. Staff very friendly and organized. Extremely clean and appealing !

    Bread was $5 for one slice (cut on two)... I mentioned it and was comp'd. Thank you! But feel it should come with the meal as prices are on the high side. On the whole very good! Steak outstanding! I did find it a bit loud tho. Our waiter was lovely.

    Nice restaurant atmosphere , staff are friendly. Food is decent but definitely overpriced for the area. My wife and I personally did not see the value in the food. I’d say it’s worth going there if you are visiting the area and would like to have a nice date night. A couple appetizers and 2 entrées for over $200. I personally would say I’d give it a 4/5 if the prices were %25 lower but can only give it a 3/5, will not recommend and will not return with the current menu and the price tag attached to it.

    Second time here. First time tried the steak tartare; was over salted as was most of our meal. This time I asked the server if the cook would go a bit lighter on the salt; results were amazing! The steak tartare was just perfect. The turnip dish my partner had was remarkable! My steak sadly was a tad underdone but I enjoyed it nonetheless; I had ordered it medium rare to share with my partner but it came in rare. Luckily my partner was almost full from her food and I enjoy a rare steak every now and then. Dessert was a toffee pudding and it was divine. Will go back but I’m a tad wary of the salting. I hope the owners read the review and maybe consider this rank amateurs advice :)
