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.

I had heard a lot of great reviews about Common Ground and wanted to check it out myself as I love sustainable food. The food was well prepared and was probably one of our best meals while in Kauai however when we went to order the food we could not find the menus right away and the woman taking the... More

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.

We went here for Sunday brunch and were very underwhelmed. We felt like we paid $35 for a breakfast we could have made much better ourselves. I had the huevos rancheros and it was cold and bland - had no flavor at all. The salsa on the top was stale and also had no taste. In general we were underwhelmed... More

Have been wanting to try this place for a while, finally made the trek up there today. Will never go again. I did not like the fact you had to order your food at one place with a very long line and staff seemed irritated, pick up your food and then then bus your table when pau. The table was... More

I will start by saying I have tried this restaurant three times all with the same ending. Poor service, apathetic staff and lack of caring for the customer. I am a vegan and this is one of the few restaurants with variety for us. It isn't worth writing all three situations as this restaurant does not care for their customers.... More

Lovely setting. Where did the wait staff go? Stand in line, only one or two people taking orders, bus your own tables, but nothing available to wipe your table down for the next person. Silverware, water, in a central area, keeps running out, and there is no one there to fill it up. Frustrated customers keep asking. Sure the salads... More
