My family and I stopped in for the Sunday brunch... quite expensive at $45.00 per person. Aside from the bread and fish, everything was awful! Tough unrecognizable meat, soggy waffles, overly seasoned soup, stale cookies, soupy chocolate mousse and undercooked custard pie. Really not worth...More

We had a wonderful evening starting with some great beverages (not big on the smoked ice cube drink), then the servers browsed the intimate crowd with delicious appetizers. We were then served a sit down meal starting with a very generous portion of Ahi sashimi...More

I used to Love Common ground, but now their hours are really limited. I think they are open only for special occasions. If it is open, enjoy as it's fresh local food.
