We went for the Sunday brunch. They do an excellent job of displaying the brunch buffet. We loved that the dishes are made with locally sourced ingredients and everything was super fresh. The flavors were wonderful in some dishes, and not all that great in others. They especially need work on the desserts! We loved the live music! Also how... More

I used to Love Common ground, but now their hours are really limited. I think they are open only for special occasions. If it is open, enjoy as it's fresh local food.

My hosts were thrilled that Commoin Ground has recently restarted its Sunday brunches, which I understand were suspended a while back. When we went it was very quiet, with only three other tables occupied, and I suspect that football (both the 49ers and the Seahawks were playing that day) and golf meant that people were glued to the TV.

After a week on the island, we were thrilled with our Sunday brunch reservation at Common Ground's Kitchen Table. We experienced a wide variety of fresh Island ingredients to put a welcomed spin on a traditional brunch. Portions at the buffet are small, indicating the chef makes small batches of each to ensure quality. The fruit, vegetables and big Island... More

Went to get some food with some friends and the restaurant only is one for private events and catering now.. This was a major Bummer.

If you are into healthy food, this is probably the place for you. They also have a lot of gluten-free items. The staff are very friendly and the place is beautiful. There is also a trail that takes you to a waterfall and garden. Not many choices on the menu so best to look ahead before you go. The fruit... More

Really great food! Surprisingly not that expensive either.. I almost went for the fish tacos but decided to try the lamb burger instead, really good! Fries are pretty good. Will for sure go back soon.

Stopped here for lunch while on bike ride through Anaina Hou community park. Really great lunch menu of grass fed beef, pulled pork, vegetarian dishes, fresh juices, bottled drinks. Open air dining over looking gardens. Clean modern facility though with an island atmosphere. Really amazing -- we're returning for breakfast in a few days.

set in the midst of an organic farm, it's worth the experience. there is a beautiful garden and waterfall a short walk from the restaurant. the food was ok, nothing really exciting, but not bad. you serve yourself, which is a bit strange considering how expensive it is. the staff seemed very stressed.
