Nice restaurant, inconsistent service

The Common Man has great food. I love the lobster Mac and cheese. Drinks are great and Common Man Ale is a great draft. Live music on Sunday's. The outside area on the river has a great atmosphere. The last time we visited the service was below average. May have been a staffing issue.

The Common Man is one of 5 or 6 restaurants owned by the same person. The food is always excellent, although the prime rib is only served one or two nights a week. When looking for a nice eating experience the Common Man is the place.

We visited this location twice since last July and I wasn't very happy with the choice of food or some of the wait staff. I was given a hard time when I tried to send a salad back because it had blue cheese on the top. The way is was worded in the menu didn't state ( blue cheese ).

We had a group of 9 converge on The Common Man for dinner. We walked through the Inn down to the restaurant. Both the restaurant and the Inn are an old textile factory that has been gorgeously renovated. Just an amazing job. Better than I have seen Marriott or Hilton do in a renovation. So the atmosphere was a strong... More

We ate here because we were staying at the inn next door. The restaurant is beautiful, with high ceilings and brick walls. It has a very nice feel to it, and the food was very good. Although we were a couple and felt it was a good romantic place to eat, two families with children came in while we were... More

Thanksgiving dinner with reservation: waited 30 minutes; checked on the status of the table 3 times and were told it was being set. Down the dark stairway to the dining room, my mother fell. It could have been avoided with better lighting and yellow reflective tape. Then we met Will the waiter who was very inexperienced, smelled strongly like an... More

Recently dined on a Friday evening around 5:45 to celebrate our anniversary. Hoped for a special meal. Upon arrival, we were told that there would be a wait of 5". We sat in the waiting area looking out at the main dining room. There were only 3-4 tables of customers. Plenty of open tables and booths. We did get seated... More

Last two visits have been sophomoric at best. Service is good. Atmosphere is lovely. Food quality...I would be embarrassed to serve food this quality. Couldn't believe the squash spaghetti was on menu as 'creamy' served with so much vinegar was inedible. Sent back after one bite. Previous visit was equally poor. Guess two strikes you're out C-Man.

We were a party of 8 on Sunday around 1 p.m. The restaurant and parking area were pretty empty so we first assumed they were closed. There were only probably 10 other people dining in the restaurant. It took 15 minutes to get seated and our waitress was the bartender. She took a bit to get our drinks and one... More
