Great last brunch before the temporary closure. Fantastic Bloody Maria’s (with spicy housemade tequila) and huevos rancheros!
Amazing farm fresh food. Good service and very nice people.
Good food! It was wonderful to be able to order any beer, as all are gluten removed. The stout was a real treat.
I loved the brunch, came here for dinner and was very disappointed in the dinner menu and beer.
Great food, cozy ambiance and wonderful service!
I dined at the bar before seeing a play. My cocktail was delicious, as was the veggie chili and the vegan stir fry. I am allergic to sesame, and the bartender assured me the stir fry was sesame free. I would gladly return here in the future!
To be honest I’m pretty upset I chose this place for a special Valentine’s Day dinner. When we got there it took us 25 minutes to get a drink, and by the time the drinks got to us the ice was melted as though they had been sitting. I had to send back my dinner twice due to my steak being too raw. Luckily, with a past in the industry I knew none of this was on the server and she was nice enough to accommodate me with another meal. Overall not the best experience, but I think the server did great for what was thrown at her. Not her fault the kitchen can’t cook a steak
We were running so behind, actually got to Uncommon 45 minutes past our reservation time, due to traffic and our Lyft driver. Once we arrived, the host was super sweet and awesome, got us seated next to the fire which was perfect for my husband and I. I will recommend this place over and over again! We will make a point to make it to the Lakeview location!
The manager.. Jim and the waitress sarah were both great.
Wonderful food and service
Great service, good vibe, great food! I brought friends from out of town and they loved it.
I was meeting a dear friend in the city, who I hadn't seen in a long time, not far from where she lived. Hard to park near the restaurant. It was kind of cute and kind of trendy/informal. When my food arrived it wasn't hot anymore, as if it had been sitting around. The chilaquiles tasted okay but were greasy and gave me heartburn later (and I love and am seldom bothered by any kind of spicy food). I wished the corn chips were over to the side, and maybe fewer of them for the proportion of meat. I was glad I ordered the avocado; that was fresh and perfect. The coffee was very good but the service a bit lax. Surprised by all the pot dispensaries nearby with their security guards out front.
Everything was good. They didn’t update their online menu and my dish of choice is seasonal so I could not order it. I went there specifically for that dish so left a bit disappointed.
The best server in Chicago Mikeal!!! Go in and see him!!
Wonderful brunch! The food and service was great!
One of my favorite luncheon spots in the neighborhood.
Service was great, atmosphere was great....food was eh. We ordered artichoke dip, mac n cheese, pork belly, and soup. It was all pretty flavorless and not cheap. The pork belly had decent flavor, but was somehow tough to chew. I’ve eaten a lot of pork belly and I’ve never had pork belly that tough. The broccoli bed dad soup was ok but artichoke dip and Mac n cheese were flavorless.
Great plant-based options, excellent service!
The actual dining experience was great, but the person I spoke to to make the reservation was kind of mean.
We came for dinner after a long day of moving and building furniture. The server was attentive.
I got a glass of red wine, which was a nice pour and a good tasting Cab. For dinner, I got the vegan tacos - they were very filling and I only finished 2 of them. They had a nice kick to them. My daughter got the Beyond Burger. She asked for it without the cheese, but it came with the cheese. She said the burger was really good. It is served with a vegan special sauce - you might want it on the side. My son got a salad and his friend got the Korean Fried Calamari. It had a sweetness to it. The sweet and spicy sauce was more sweet than anything else. He would have preferred the Spicey.
We found the waiter and were able to pay.
We loved our visit! Great service and great food. Highly recommend.
Being gluten intolerant I'm always looking for a GF beer that has some body and flavor. At Uncommon Ground I've found a regular gluten free beer Mecca. I can't remember the last time I was able to get a flight of beers to sample that were all GF. After sampling quite a few I wanted to get a growler of a new favorite but couldn't remember if it was the stout or the porter, my lovely waitress brought over another sample of each so I could be sure.
Oh, by the way, the food was excellent too!!
The breakfast sandwich was amazing! Service was a bit slow but not too bad. Great atmosphere and food!
The short ribs were fabulous! Cocktails were right on and always good beer.
Great neighborhood place for really tasty, interesting food and drinks. Plenty of vegetarian/vegan options is a huge plus. The service is always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Uncommon Ground (both locations).
I'm very frustrated with my first time visiting this restaurant. My boyfriend lives nearby and has raved about it before. I surprised him with a reservation and was really let down. The place was pretty empty for a Sunday at 10:30 AM, and rather than being sat at one of the many available window seats, we were sat in a corner with my seat a foot from the bathroom entrance. He ordered an Irish Coffee, server didn't know what that was, I ordered a Chai Latte and it took 22 minutes to appear. I ordered the breakfast sandwich with added avocado, avocado didn't come out, had to flag it to my server and it then appeared from another server once my plate was cold. When our server came to grab our plates and deliver the check I had to ask him to remove the extra avocado charge - he was more than aware of his poorly provided service and as a former server myself, it shocked me he didn't proactively remove the minor added charge. I said "yes" to recommending to a friend because the food was really great, incredible potatoes and the aioli on the sandwich needs to be bottled and sold - but I am really frustrated with the service and lack of care for someone with a reservation. Hopefully the restaurant reads this review and puts a little more push behind their employees on slower days.
Great for a pleasant, chill, yummy brunch with friends or family.
Birthday brunch for dad and older son. Food was really good. Service was great. Waiting for the food seemed a little long so 4 and not 5 stars. We’ll definitely be back.
The best food and amazing service!!!
LOVED everything about this place. Truly everything. Our waitress could have checked in with us a little more, but she had many tables and I’m a waitress myself so I understand. She was still AMAZING. Truly no complaints that would keep me from coming back, or from recommending someone else. This place is a gem. So happy I know about it now.
First time visit & we were not disappointed, it was everything I'd heard about it & more. The food, the service, the restaurant itself, all amazing.
It's a generally nice place to go. The menu changes depending what's in season.
The food was decent but the smash burger was a very odd taste and had almost no flavor. Everyone was content with their food but nothing more. Three of our seven entrees were given to us 20 minutes before the others which was not great. The restaurant comped us 20% of the check for this which was very considerate of them but overall I think this was just an ok spot given that there are plenty of amazing brunch places in Chicago.
Food very good, service on point. Avocado toast excellent (added 2 eggs over easy).
Menu is fun and interesting, food was tasty, service was a bit slow. Difficult to put our order in and get drink refills
Uncommon Ground is one of my favorite go to's. Staff is always so kind & friendly. Thank you for a beautiful Sunday brunch, we loved the bloody marias!
Chicken and waffles was divine, sparkling rose was not cold enough, service excellent otherwise
Good spot for brunch
Great vegan and vegetarian options!
I just love this place. The food and the beer are amazing. The ingredients are fresh and favorful. It's my favorite casual restaurant and I have taken many friends and family here and they all love it.
