My husband & I have had dinner at Uncommon Ground and have loved it. This was our first time brunching with them and we really loved it. We will be back for the crispy breakfast potatoes!
Angela was great, she made our already great dining experience even better. The food was spectacular, and the old fashioneds were great.
I thought my reservation was for indoor dining, but they only provided outdoor. We had to eat in a snowstorm. Staff and food were wonderful, but they should be more clear regarding reservations.
It was so cold sitting in the tent with a ton of snow by our feet! More heaters or being a little bit more enclosed with sticking to aCOVID guidelines would be better
Need better heaters
Good service and they did a nice job with the heaters to try to keep us warm outside.
Really happy to be able to catch dinner with a friend..........yes it's cold out in the tent, but you are in Chicago in January. I feel so bad for all those in the restaurant industry who are trying to survive in the circumstances we are living in right now........ great establishment.........keep pushing
It was too cold to eat there the patio was freezing cold
Very COVID safe and friendly. Great, hot food and excellent service. The black bean burger and cheese curds are some favs, and make sure to order a beer as well!
Wow great food and amazing service! Fresh and fast. Sat outside for brunch and the heater was sufficient. Recommend highly!
They had outdoor dining set up with heaters and a tent to make it more comfortable. The servers were friendly and made sure we had what we needed at all times. Great experience overall.
Always a great time!
Excellent outdoor and safe experience!
The food was delicious and so easy to order with the GF and vegan markings on the menu. Love love loved the miso cauliflower!
Great value and food. Wonderful service. Highly recommend for casual lunch. Nice heaters and tents.
Two sides of the tent were open, resulting in terrible cold and winds. All 4 tent sides should be closed!
Outside dining in November, due to Covid-19. I was hesitant to go out to eat, but I felt very safe overall; plenty of space between tables, the tent was just a roof, so no air was trapped by walls and kept the airflow strong the whole time, and the overhead heater worked quite well.
Food and service was excellent as well. The staff strongly and politely encouraged everyone to keep their mask on when no one at a table was eating/drinking. Beer selection/recommendations were on point too.
Waitress was a bit cranky, but the food was good. The outdoor area is pretty comfortable, but wear a long coat or bring a blanket to sit on. The chairs a cold!
Nice atmosphere, cocktails and service was good, but the food was, sadly, not great. Shiitake mushroom risotto was very rich, but didn't taste of much and the pumpkin ravioli, while having potential for being good, were so oily that I cannot bring myself to give even four stars. Artichoke, goat cheese & pesto dip and apple cinnamon cobbler were alright, but not great.
One of our favorite neighborhood spots! We were in a rush and we had the fastest service we could've asked for, with delicious food.
Very good food. Outside on the patio on a warm fall day. Staff very attentive to COVID-19 protocol.
So safe lovely out door heated tent! Amazing cocktails and big fan of the salmon! Definitely go support this local restaurant!
Ok cool thanks 👍👍👍👍👍
Outstanding food! I don't even like brussel sprouts but loved theirs!
The pumpkin ravioli will haunt me for the rest of my life. So so good.
I have been coming here for over 15 years. A gem! We had the cheese curds, goat cheese fondue and shared pork tacos. Our server was great too! Patio is great for dining outside!
They are doing a great job with the food and COBID precautions!
A wonderful place to enjoy lunch with a friend. We had delicious food and an attentive, friendly server. Great experience.
Excellent service and delicious service.
The pumpkin ravioli was so flavorful. I couldn't put my fork down. Bundle up - outdoor seating only and the heating lamp was not very helpful.
Wonderful food and very good service! We will be back again.
Great service and outstanding food. We will be back!!
All things considered - we had a great meal and excellent service, which is normal for Uncommon Ground. What isn't "normal" was sitting outside in a tent in 40° weather. Bundle up a little and try to get a table with an overhead heating unit. Small business needs us! Happy to support these folks and they provided a great experience!
Everything was great! Great food & good social distancing. The only complaint is the over priced growlers & howler we purchased.
Great experience. Good food and fair prices.
We were rushed.
Great brunch place! Seasonal menu always has something for everyone. Great outdoor space, social distancing is not a problem. The waiter won't approach the table unless everyone is masked. Terrific beer selection also.
In the time of Covid, there are people who have different requirements. For me, I’m very immune compromised and could only sit outside away from any people. My partner and I were celebrating my birthday. It went very well
Surprised that they haven't opened up indoors yet...city allows 40% indoors. Sat with a heater and that was nice....the menu selections are still road and all the food was excellent.
The food and service are always great at Uncommon Grounds. I love their organic beers. Due to COVID, all dining is outdoors, which I totally get. But they could use some more of those portable heaters ( I only saw two) or some wind screens; I was shivering by the end of dinner. I might have to wait for spring to return to this neighborhood favorite.
