The Common - College Park Marriott Ratings and Reviews
This was terrible. It took 20 minutes for someone to acknowledge our presence and give us water which was never refilled the entire time. Everyone was waiting for their food. At every table. The waitress was overwhelmed, said the kitchen was backed up. As we were ready to walk out the food arrived. We had flagged down the manager after 45 minutes and still no food. She apologized and gave a discount off the bill. We have always noticed how poorly run this restaurant was but overlooked it because we were with friends or had the one older waitress who is the only competent person there. We probably won’t be back.
Very convenient location to go for a meal before a Maryland game but the staff is not geared towards a pre-game dinner crowd. Even with reservations we had to wait 15 minutes for our table and then waited over 30 minutes for us all to get our first drink order. We let the waitress know we were going to the Maryland Bball game (which they were unaware of) and noted we needed to order and get out quickly (we had over an hour and a half but wanted to make sure as service was slow) Salads came 30 minutes later and orders were wrong. Entrees (minus 1) came out 30 minutes after that so we had to rush to eat. Numerous drink orders were not received or arrived just as we were leaving. This location has the advantage of location we actually can get to the game sooner if we dine elsewhere.
What happened?! This used to be a fun and reasonably priced restaurant to go to before basketball games. The service has gone way down, prices have gone up and our favorite item was taken off the menu! Sorry, but we will not be going back unless drastic improvements are made!
We live in the neighborhood and frequent the Common often —todays lunch was especially outstanding. Chicken Noodle soup tasted homemade, hearty and very flavorful. It tasted so good (fighting a cold) that I took some to “go”. The house garden salad was fresher than ever and very tasty as well. The staff (both manager and servers) were very attentive and pleasant. We love going to the Common for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and/or dinner.
Free Parking, Food was good, Convenient. Some vegetarian options. The reason why I would return is the staff is honest. I only had one cocktail and left my American Express behind. I realized my oversight about 15min latter. The waitress turned the card in to loss prevention. I retrieved it had to sign some forms no big deal. My wife loved it she is very picky. Will go back, apparently they do a sunday brunch. May want to avoid on Saturdays during MD games given the location unless you are staying at the Marriott.
We had a very early dinner to celebrate my son's graduation, so were practically the only diners. Service was pleasant but not polished. Food was excellent, although the menu was a limited. Overall, we had a good experience and no big complaints, but there was nothing that really stood out. A solid restaurant for a family occasion.
Our party has two vegetarians and a vegan. Not a great menu selection for them - two salads and no main dishes were vegan. We made it clear to the server when ordering, yet the pasta ordered as vegan came out with cheese on it. The server didn't seem to understand the concept of vegetarian or vegan - they should be trained on such things. Everyone in our party of 4 thought the food was good.
Went for Mother's Day Brunch to make it easy for our UMD junior who was in the midst of finals. We usually avoid Mother's Day out w all noise, wait, etc. This was a fab idea, great food, not too crowded, easy free parking, nice service, yummy cocktails, try the French Martini!
As the appearance of some place special, but food and service were a big disappointment. We waited 5-10 minutes to be seated in a mostly empty restaurant, then more lags for subsequent service. $20 pasta entry was bland and served without any accompaniment (no bread, not a leaf of greens, etc). Codiner's salad was a disappointment as well.
We are regulars at the Commons although not sure if this trend will continue as the prices have gotten way out of control for dinner. We invited a friend to join us and our bill for 4 dinners ( no beverages) was quite pricey. Food was good except my steak which was recommended by our server was not prepared medium rare and was way too salty
Had scheduled an 8pm dinner. Table wasn't ready, that was not a problem. While we were waiting, two ladies came from behind us, no reservation, and were seated after we were. After about ten minutes, with no waitstaff, no water, etc.. the waitstaff walked past our table to attend to the ladies who came in after us. Gave them water, answered questions about the menu, and took their order. We left, unoticed, and without regard. Once we got in the car and I opened the app to write my review, I got a notification that the restaurant had cancelled our reservation. Talking about insult on top of injury. We will not be dining there again.
I found the restaurant by scanning OpenTable. At first, I was disappointed to discover it was inside a hotel restaurant. But when I tasted the crab soup, I got over myself land dove it. It was delicious! One of the best I've had. I ordered the salmon as my main course. I requested it blackened, which the cooks in the kitchen interpreted as over-well done. I was willing to eat the salmon-jerky. After all, I was the one who ordered a different type of preparation. But the waitress felt so bad about it, she brought me a new meal. I really appreciated that. My husband's meal looked great. I don't remember what it was. He said it was delicious and cleaned his plate. I would go there again.
We love coming to the Common! We always enjoy the food and atmosphere. Our favorite server is Hirute!! We ask for her every time we eat here. She is the definition of "service with a smile". Her enthusiasm for giving excellent service is refreshing and she is a good part of the reason we have such a wonderful dining experience.
We love this place and go often. The waitstaff is a bit uneven. Tonight our waiter, although pleasant, was slow, forgot things, and never brought the check. We finally left cash on the table and left. The waiter followed as my friend had left his phone. We had not left enough money to cover the bill and we had not planned to leave a tip. He said don't worry about it. Somehow when this place was (beautifully) remodeled, the management or wait service or whatever just simply changed. The food is very good, more creative than when it was the tiny garden cafe (or whatever it was called back then). But we go here before attending performances at The Clarice - so there's a time element. We now make reservations 2 hours before the performance, even though the venue is about 5 min away by car because you cannot count on the service bring quick or at all efficient.
We were pleasantly surprised that the food was much better than the typical Marriott hotels such as Residence Inn, Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, and Town Suites chain. Definitely recommend as it is a good meal value and a modern atmosphere. Servers are also very nice.
The Common restaurant is NOT Common. The food was great, the service very attentive. We started by sharing a very delicious Caesar salad. It was big enough for three. We Then enjoyed the "house" burgers and the roast turkey sandwich. All were served with "house" sea salt chips! Delicious!
Our server, Dil, was friendly and attentive.
We shared apple cobbler and ice cream for dessert. Including the Sam Adams beer our son ordered, the bill was quite reasonable at about $65.00.
A very pleasant restaurant. Open, spacious, decorated in colonial style. Very accommodating staff when they had reservations for 5 and we actually had 8. Very pleasant wait staff. food was very good, large variety of appetizers and entree's. Family very much enjoyed the entire experience at a very reasonable price. We'll go again.
The lunch options were plentiful and met a wide variety of dietary needs. The food was fresh and tasty and the portions were generous. Service was attentive without being intrusive and allowed us plenty of uninterrupted time to catch up. I heartily recommend The Common.
