I don't usually review restaurants because whether you like a place is so subjective. But the reviews for the Common Plea vary so much that I thought I would report our very positive experience. We were seated promptly at a table we selected, and given the drink menus. They did have several wines by the glass.
Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, but not intrusive. Showed some personality, but was not overly personal. In sum, exactly what you want in a server. We were encouraged to customize our dishes, which was unexpected and welcome. All the food we ordered was really good, esp. the steak and the veal dishes. Everything was presented nicely. This was very tasty food; not wild and novel, but a good and updated take on some classic items. A big hit with our family group, which ranged in age from 20 to 92. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food and the upscale atmosphere.
