It's just worth it.

I live in the area, and there are a lot of good options for restaurants in Utah County, but Communal takes the cake on quality and atmosphere. I don't have rose colored glasses, there have been a few things I've tried that I didn't like (the menu changes seasonally), but it's a taste preference... read more

Fair price, good food and great service. Served family-style, with elegantly presented dishes and very accommodating staffs. And how wonderful the drink was!

I have never had a dish here that didn't impress me. Even the things on the menu that sound mundane are just awesome. Most of the menu items, though, don't sound mundane. The chef at Communal does an excellent job being innovative and creative, but not weird. The quality is always top-notch. A great place to go for good, down-to-Earth... More

Communal is a locavore type restaurant - using local and sustainable meats and cheeses. They take relatively ordinary ingredients and turn them into masterpieces. The grapefruit spritzer, with fresh squeezed Texas pink grapefruit, sugar and sparkling water may be the best drink I've ever had. I had two and would go back just to get it. My wife had a... More

We traveled to Provo over the past weekend and had the enjoyment of having dinner Friday night at Communal. Our dinner was excellent in every regard, the service was friendly and helpful, the food was absolutely amazing! Chef Newman put together favors that were perfect and left you looking forward to each next course. We would recommend this restaurant highly!

My friend has lived in this area for over 30 years. He said this is his favorite restaurant, I can see why. All the food was served family style, very fun. We had the beet appetizer , Spinach salad, trout, short rib, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, and on and on. Everything was superb! Excellent service, relaxed atmosphere, just a great dining... More

I have been living here for a few years now and didn't know about this place until recently. The restaurant has a nice personal and modern feel to it with great and friendly service. It is expensive, but completely worth every dollar. I felt like my meal (pork chops) was prepared extremely well, and brought in new flavors that I... More
