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

This place can be hit or miss for us. Sometime we absolutely love, love, love it. We will go and there will be one or two things that are to DIE for. We will go multiple times that month or two. Then sometimes there's just nothing that tickles our fancy. It's always worth a try though!

Communal offers a great dining experience. Their menu is local, fresh and absolutely delicious. Everything is flavoured incredibly well. This could definitely be my favourite restaurant in Provo.

It's not a big place. But the food and service are outstanding. I am a foodie. I wa stunned to find this place in downtown Provo. My expectations were blown away. I had good wine, inventive but honest fresh food and waitstaff that was top notch. I was traveling alone and it worked out really well. I will come back... More

Party of 4. Food was good on a sale of 1-10 was a 7. The skirt steak was way way to salty. Way to small of portions for the price- 4 people $200+. Won't go back.

Had a reservation and waited for an hour beyond our reserved time. Finally had to leave after the waitress told us 5 more minutes about 5 times. Will not go back.

Hello, we sincerely apologize for the mix-up with your reservation that caused you to wait far longer than is to be expected. We apologize also for the wrong estimate our host gave you. We hope you will return in the future so we can make things right. Thank you. More

Very friendly, like the changing menu with healthy options. Friendly service! Dining space is a little small, so maybe get there early to ensure a table

My wife and I had heard many things about the Communal so we finally decided to give it a try and we were really impressed. The restaurant is small and we were sat at the large community table which was a little different but still fun. The food was really good. We ordered the watermelon salad as an appetizer and...

My wife and I came to Provo for business and were looking for a nice local restaurant for dinner. We are very glad that we found Communal because it was a far better place to eat than what we were expecting. You have your choice of closely spaced doubles tables or one long table where 20 people can dine. The... More
