We had a nice meal served family style. We got to share and taste everything. Enjoyable ! Shared asparagus appetizer, two main courses, couple side dishes and dessert! Nice evening.

Went here on a sales lunch. Never been here before. I had the steak sandwich which was very good. It's similar to a philly steak but made with tri tip beef carved extremely thin with cheese and sauteed onions. Give it a try. Comes with a very generous portion of fries.

This is a restaurant that was highly recommended by locals in Provo and many reviews I read on different sites. It certainly didn't disappoint! As suggested by the restaurant's name, our entire meal was comprised of shared starters, salad, entrée and dessert. For starters we ordered the charcuterie board - which everyone should try, every bit of it was delicious;... More

Stumbling in here for a quick lunch, this is a delightful restaurant. The atmosphere is homey, yet upscale. The service was excellent. Everything ordered was amazing. The fried chicken sandwich had a spicy and flavorful batter that did not detract from the tender meat within. The meatloaf was also extremely tender and chock full of carrots and spices. The asparagus... More

Was immediately seated at the counter at the open grill. They just started serving crab cakes, nicely done, crisp and lots of meat. For main course I had the meat balls, very flavorful, nice red sauce. My side was snap peas and mushrooms, they were quite nice. The homemade rolls were spot on. Nice wine selection. Ask for Heather as... More

We dine out frequently in SLC and Communal clearly rivals the best "farm to table" spots there. Unique and welcoming environment, outstanding service, and locally sourced food--that's the big picture. The family style dining had something for everyone--mashed potatoes, pasta--but also we adult foodies. The salmon hushpuppies and the braised kale were standouts. No cocktails available--there is a corkage option... More

Communal is a fun spot to have brunch. The menu is large enough for most anyone to find something appealing. I have to say though, that I was not overly impressed with our choices: the eggs benedict was standard and fine, but did not justify the hype. Some of the sides we ordered were also just fine. Look, there's nothing... More

We tried Communal for lunch, with a party of 4, taking some out of town friends there because of all the marvelous things we've heard about the place. I felt the prices were high for the food and service received. We sat at the end of a long "communal" table that thankfully had only a few others sitting at it... More

This is the place that brought a foodie scene to Provo. I've been eating at Communal since it opened, and have been there with friends and family, business partners, my own work team, and I've even gone by myself. They're respectful and thoughtful of the footprint a restaurant has, and source whatever they can from local producers. Whatever you do,... More
