Everything was very good. We had a fantastic server. She was prompt flexible and charming. The food was very good in both flavours and presentation. We ended up trying all five of their cocktails and each one was excellent.

We went there for a celebration meal and we're excited all day for the Sunday pot roast my absolute most favorite meal ever. When we went to order there was none available. I found this most disappointing and couldn't understand why the most in demand Sunday special would not be factored in for the entire Sunday dinner. I ended up with a hamburger and fries for a birthday/wedding anniversary meal that I could have cooked myself. Our server and service was great, just felt let down.

Loved the food and experience. We sat at the counter in front of the cooks, it was like dinner and a show. The Sunday roast beef dinner is absolutely one of the best I’ve ever had. My wife had the grilled trout and truly loved it. We will be back again very soon for another incredible meal.

A splendid find along Orillia's Main Street. The Common Stove is a "must visit", very attentive, professional staff, a creative bartender, beautifully prepared and presented food - more apropos for NYC than Simcoe-Muskoka - but delighted they chose Orilla as their location.
The wine list if both affordable and very well thought out - you can even debate the pronunciation of Langudoc with your server!
The central feature of the establishment is the Common Stove, a wood-fired behemoth: you can be sure that the chefs, who pirouette in front of the hearth are thankful of Fall temperatures!
Can be a little loud for quiet conversation, perhaps some sound attenuation might help, but you soon get attuned to the din - a din created by your enthusiastic fellow diners.

Food was absolutely delicious. My husband got the rib eye and I got the roasted cabbage with butternut squash and lentil dish. Excellent service as well and the house made liqueurs were a great way to finish an awesome meal. Overall had a great evening.

Service exceptional, food amazing!! Very tasty. We had the burger which was very unique with excellent flavours. The fries are the best ever!! They even have house made “ketchup” which was delicious with a little kick. Definitely recommend the Common Stove! Cant wait to try it for dinner next time!

Food was ok not great and was way overpriced! I had prime rib that was 60% fat for $39. But after food was dropped on me by a server it certainly soured my night. Even after taking my meal off the bill the staff almost made me feel somehow it was my fault. We will never return nor my family or anyone I know!!!

The Rib eye was fantastic, best piece of beef we have ever eaten, and the trout was unlike any we had had before, with a beautiful faro succotash and absolutely silky carrot puree. This was a phenomenal date date with great ambiance, amazingly attentive service and wonderful food. Although some things are pricey every time we had was well worth the cost, however I would not go if you are on a tight budget as it could come as a bit of a surprise.

The whole night was amazing until desert when there was a fingernail clipping on the plates of chocolates. Didn’t want to make a big deal because my partner just dropped over $300 and didn’t want him to feel like he wasted his money but it was a super disgusting way to end a very nice meal

Food was exceptional. The alley with lights was charming, metal seats a bit cold, would bring cushion next time. Service was a bit overly efficient for the price at the end, I got the vibe they wanted us out of there for the next diners, Were there less than 1 hour.

The best steaks we have had in the area. A little noisy...perhaps because we were sitting at the counter in front of all the grilling and prep. Warm too but entertaining. Staff were very friendly
