I was vacationing solo with my 11 and 8 year old children for Feb vacation. Without much prior homework (which is unusual for me) I googled restaurants in the nearby area and happened into a wonderful dining experience. I called and was able to get a res telling them I was 10 min away. When we pulled into the parking... More

We went out for our special dinner to The Common Man during a long weekend staying in the area. Wine list was super and the owner was extremely cordial and helpful in helping us pair with our meal. Service was above average and the food was super. Warm, cozy atmosphere in a very large room but the noise level stays... More

The three pasta options were amazing. And paired with a Caesar salad and $5 wine option, a great value.

Delicious and authentic, the proprietor greets you at the door, is a fabulous sommelier and area guide. Lorien was great with suggestions for dinner, wine and places to visit. The winter greens were divine - amazing combination of textures and flavors. The grilled octopus not native to VT and spectacular as well. The suggested wine paring was - can't find... More

We are in this area often and this was our first visit to The Common Man but it will certainly not be our last. The ambience with a roaring fireside table in a converted barn and the staff from beginning to end added to a most amazing meal. The cocktails were unique and had choices for all of us ranging...

My family and I ate here Friday night. The drinks and food were all awesome. Service was fantastic. Each of our meals was perfect. Little bit pricey but totally worth the price.

The ambience was great - very cozy - nice fireplace - high ceilings - well decorated. Very nice place - we would go back. As for our dinner, we ordered the Caesar salad but the anchovy taste was too strong so we sent it back and waited for our entrees. By surprise, the manager brought over another appetizer which was...

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.
