Was really good to be on a patio again! Service was excellent. Just one thing - We were expecting a weekend brunch menu as listed on their website, but they only had a dinner menu at 1pm on a Sunday.. not exactly what we felt like but was good nonetheless

My gal friend and I had a lovely time on the patio. I had called to change my reservation time knowing that it might not be possible but I spoke with a lovely hostess who took the time to accommodate us for a better time. We were so appreciative, knowing how crazy patio season is at the moment.
Our sever was very nice and she checked in on us throughout the night.
The cocktails list was wonderful.
And the Manager even came to the table to help with a cocktail recommendation, which was very warm and friendly!
We will be back!
Recommend this cozy neighborhood spot :)

We always love eating at the Commoner and are so glad to be able to sit on the patio again! Can't wait for brunch to be served again so we can have the fantastic French toast.
We recommend the Commoner to friends often. Such good and friendly service, great ambiance and great food.

The salad just had a wee bit too much dressing so that's the reason food wasn't 5 stars. The gin and tonics were great.

The dining experience was not quite what I was expecting. Our server forgot to send in our food order so we were waiting for over an hour for the food to come. She did come over and apologize and offered solutions , which was great but I would've preferred her to have already come up with one. At the end of our stay, the host came over and informed us to leave and apologized for the order delay. It felt ironic and unwelcoming as she did two things at once: insult us and apologize lol.

The Commoner serves excellent meals with great fries. My chicken sandwich was wonderful. My friend had a Cob salad and extended congratulations to the chef on the excellent flavour. I just hope this place can be with us for a long time.
A great lunch in 6 degrees.

Had a great first visit. Food was fresh and tasty. Our server was amazing. Will definitely come back. One tiny comment I’d like to share is that I think the crab cakes could be a bit larger for what the price is. Thanks so much!

Fantastic food and service, super fresh and healthy power bowl with salmon, IPA and truffle fries. Will go there again. Streetside patio is a little noisy, especially with the chance sirens. But great outdoor space. Will return.

We went for lunch and sat outside. Our server was very pleasant. The food was mediocre only because there wasn’t a huge selection
Especially if you don’t eat carbs. It was typical bar food....my millennial aged kids loved it!
If I want to go for fat, calories and carbs, I would definitely choose this place to satisfy that craving.
The bar itself inside was stunning. I may try doing dinner there once to see if the selection is better.
All in all, not a bad place.

My partner and I have been enjoying the Commoner since it opened a couple years back. It’s a neighbourhood gem- delicious and reasonably priced food (you gotta try the portobello burger!), great drinks, a beautiful space and a huge patio (very helpful during covid!), and lovely staff who will go out of your way to ensure your experience is special. Special shout out to Dawn Marie for always going out of her way to make us feel at home. We love the Commoner!
