I expected the dinner menu to be much larger and more interesting. More of a lunch place, IMO
Not much to recommend The Commons other than location on the wine- tasting circuit in Woodinville. Breakfast was a mix of IHOP-level, perfunctory cooking: French toast right out of Sysco freezer and a ham and egg sandwich that was bland and uninteresting. Probably not a bad place to have a cup of coffee and network with coworkers, but for food, there just has to be better options.
Consistency is key! My parents and I come here every time they're in town. They liked it so much they came back for breakfast the next day. Thanks for always being excellent! To date, this might be the only restaurant I'll happily pay the 20% service charge for gratuity. The staff earns it every time.
The servers do not know the food well and it feels like diner service. If your gonna charge that much for tacos then the service should match up. Food was average at best. Breakfast is a safer bet. Y’all need improvement.
Very pleasant. A nice casual place. Service great. I approve of the included service charge. Pork tacos are delicious!
Really great experience for brunch/lunch. Excellent food, wide selection, large portions, attentive service. Definitely a good option in Woodinville.
This was a great experience! Service and food was amazing!!!
Great brunch, service was a little slow but it was Sunday & very busy.
Good food and great vegetarian options
Our server was not too friendly and seemed to matter of fact. Messed order but replaced it
Mostly servers are super friendly and great on getting orders right and in a timely fashion
This certainly was not what I expected. The space was cold, uncomfortable and loud (even though the restaurant was less than 1/2 full). Both of our entrees were very salty, and were not served hot. The overall meal was definitely not worth $150.
Casual environment with excellent food. Took teenage kids and everyone very pleased with dinner and dessert. Milkshakes got two thumbs up from kids. We eat at Purple with kids too, but Commons more casual with same quality food. Highly recommend!
Crab dip did not taste very crabby for the price, and would have been better with bread than potato chips. Fish and chips were very good. Salad was good but pricey. Banana Bread pudding tasted good but was just two slices of banana bread--not what you would expect for "pudding." Service was very slow, which was surprising because it was not very busy.
We waited for 25 minutes for anyone to come to our table for service to no avail and then left.
The good news is that our 3 year old threw a tantrum on the way out because he was hungry.
Have always loved the Commons but will not be planning to go back.
Service mediocre at best. Food prepared not to order. Overall highly overrated
Kids dinner was dry and over cooked, my food was okay but over priced for the amount received. Experience was nice but wouldn’t go back.
Great atmosphere, servers were polite and timely, and the food was very good! Tables were a little small but nothing to really complain about. Will be back!
Worst steak ever so chewy. Service ok. Service 20% included.
We really liked the food we ordered and the service we got. Everything was good.
The fried pickles were so salty they were inedible. The manager graciously accepted our feedback and the item was removed from our bill.
Always a favorite for consistently good food and service. If I only have one complaint is that the restaurant is exceptionally loud. There is "adds to the energy and vibe" kind of loud and then there is "can't hold a conversation" loud. They should invest in some sound deadening. Still, I won't remove a star for it. I love this place and the staff is always as great as the food.
Tables are so close together , so loud you can't hear yourself think, gratuity added to bill and food was not worth the price. I could make better at home.
We had a reservation for six people at 7:30 on a Saturday night, but we weren’t seated until almost 8:00, which was frustrating. The actual table service and food were excellent and our appetizers were comped, which was very much appreciated. I understand things happen, but what is the point of a reservation if you have to wait that long?
Great service and food. We enjoyed our dinner date out and can’t wait to come back
Love going to the Commons. It's my new spot. Every experience has been great.
Good was way too expensive and wasn’t even good. $10 for an order of French toast on kids menu. Bill came also with 20% gratuity already included and there was only 3 of us . Service was good and we would have tipped that much anyway as we don’thold the wait staff responsible for bad food, but what if service was horrible? Just visiting my daughter, but when I visit again, will not go there.
Love this place. My favorite is the brunch time.
Our server was amazing and he didn't rush us out. It was our first time and we had a great experience.
Loved the food & mimosa!
I really love this place. It has a good vibe and great food. The servers are on top of it and professional. It is more expensive than many places in the area. If you do not make a reservation you are likely in for a wait.
The food was fine. Drinks were great. The cleanliness of the restaurant was not great. I’ve never seen that much dust accumulate on a ceiling ever before. Makes me wonder about the cleanliness of the rest of everything.
Very quick food!
I’ve been here many times and am always excited to go back. Great food, wide variety of drinks, and fantastic service. It’s almost always busy, so make a reservation! It can be a little noisy, but it’s just because it’s almost always packed.
Love going to the Commons with family and friends. I can always count on great food and awesome Almomd milk Chai’s. Thank you!!!
We really appreciate that the Commons serves wholesome bread with its breakfast plates with what appears to be healthy, homemade hot sauce and raspberry jam. My easy-over eggs were cooked to perfection and I noted that the potatoes were red-skinned potatoes that were oven-fried, I believe.
Thank you for not skimping on the quality of your ingredients.
We absolutely love dining at The Commons. The food and service are always on point!
Love The Commons, especially for brunch. Mike was our server and talk about incredible service - the best! Made eating out with a toddler very enjoyable.
Favorite neighborhood spot.
The food is always delicious at the commons! Some of my favorite brunch in the greater Seattle area!
The food and service are always good, but it is pricey for what it is, especially for kids.
Great location and food is very good. Limited menu but just enough choices to satisfy all. Love the mimosas
