Description: The Common Man Restaurant is located in Warren, Vermont, in the heart of Mad River Valley, between Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. Sited in a 19th century barn, the dining room is elegant in its simplicity. With hand-hewn beams framing an open hearth fireplace, the 100-seat restaurant is inviting and intimate. Since the original owners, the Orsini family, opened their doors in the 1960s, 3209 German Flats Road has been a popular place for locals, visitors, and skiers to gather for a quality Vermont dining experience. Now in its fourth generation of operation, the current owners, Chef Adam Longworth and Lorien Wroten, are working hard to re-energize this Vermont dining institution with small town hospitality and world class cuisine.

“Never Disappointing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

Awesome food and atmosphere regardless of the size of the group. They have a very rustic and Vermont-esque feel but with a twist of romance and comfort. The rabbit and stuffed mushrooms are amazing.

“Very Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

Super nice and elegant place. The atmosphere is very nice. The food was very good, particular and elaborate, unexpected for being in the middle of the mountains! we liked they do not have a closing time and they accept people at any time. The rabbit and the meat were lovely. Of course it is a bit pricey but it is worth!

Great food and friendly staff. The best flat iron steak I've had. Definitely worth a visit.

“Good atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

This restaurant is in a big barn or ski'hut, whatever you prefer to name it. But you felt immediately after entering that the atmosphere was nice, cosy. Friendly waiting staff that met our needs in a normally (not exagerated) friendly way. We took a starter to share, consisiting of a charcuterie plate with different high quality meats, like salami, cured ham and others. It was excellent. We had a nice bottleof Zinfandel with it that went along well. My wife choose a The of grilled vegetables and I had grilled wild king salmon on a crabcake. The grilled vegetables were very OK, though she could have eaten two of those dishes. She is a small lady and a small eater, but the portion was not enough to satisfy her. My salmon: finally a salmon only grilled, without herbs or crust of something or cre3am or sauce, just grilled salmon as it should be. Delicious. Though also here I have to say that the protion was too small for a mian dish, even after the starter. But overall a satisfyinh event, that we willprobably repeat when in the area.
