The restaurant property abuts the Fairfield Inn in Concord so it is very convenient for those staying there. Food and atmosphere are both good. I had an Italian night and was very satisfied with the quality.

OK, I had no expectations. Ambiance is OK. Food we OK. I had the pot roast. It was a little dry. Partner had prime rib. Asked for medium rare and end cut. Those two are mutually exclusive, something the server should have told her. It came well done. Portions were large. Service was adequate. Pricing somewhat on the high end.... More

Large portions of home-styled New England food is what you'll find here. This is a great place to come with the family or with large groups. If your looking for a quiet or upscale meal, this is not the place.

We had dinner here Dec. 16 with friends. All dishes were well prepared and good value for this region. The waitstaff and manager were very attentive, pleasant and professional. The ambiance was cheerful and moderately noisy. We will be back.

This was our first time in Concord and The Common Man looked like an easy access location for our group. The parking lot was full at lunch and there was a thirty minute wait for downstairs seating. We were offered immediate seating in the upstairs bar area. Our waitress was very nice but perhaps a bit overwhelmed by the number... More

It's a little pricey but the food is fantastic . My favorite is the mussel in a cream sauce. I can eat that for dinner.

My husband and I decided to stop in the Common Man in Concord NH on Sunday for lunch. They were just opening and we were the 2nd couple in. I asked the hostess if we could sit by the fire but were told we couldn't because the waiter already had someone in his section. But of course they 4th couple... More

I was meeting friends I haven't seen in years and each of us living in different towns made this a nice meeting spot right off of the highway. The server was very patient with us since we hadn't seen each other in years, we were catching up more than looking to order right away. The print on the menu was... More
