    Only minor minor issue is that we were never provided more water other than initial bottle. We kept forgetting to ask when the server came out, so that was partially on us.

    Went here for Mother’s Day. We come here frequently and it’s always good, but the staff really went out of their way to make us comfortable and accommodated.

    Team Uncommon Ground and especially our server Michael all knocked it out of the park. We had a fantastic meal outside and enjoyed every bit of it. Great job all and we'll be back again. Thx Glenn P.

    Uncommon Ground - Lakeview is a very pleasant restaurant. They offer multiple options for diners. We tried vegan, steak and fish dishes and were well satisfied with all. Service was pleasant and informative. It's obvious why this restaurant is a neighborhood and tourist favorite.

    Service was such that the food arrived from the kitchen before our drinks. Not impressed with the flavor of the majority of our dishes
