“Eat Local!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

We walked in after a long day in the car looking less than spectacular. They seated us immediately and didn't mind our super casual attire. The food was great, but that dessert was amazing! I could have licked the plate. FYI- Wine list and beer, but no hard alcohol.

“Sorry excuse for "trendy"”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Went to communal for the first time with some friends. It is a grossly overpriced excuse for a "trendy" restaurant. We had a party of six, and the server suggested we order "at least five entree's." She wasn't kidding, the portions are tiny. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought the point of "Communal" was you shared the entree's. Honestly the portions for one person at Olive Garden are much larger (and cheaper.) I have no problem paying a premium for quality food, but communal was a joke...way overpriced. Will not be back.

“WOW! Amazing!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

This restaurant could get dropped into the middle of a big city (San Francisco, New York, LA, etc) and not miss a beat. The food was OUTSTANDING (and the service was way above average as well). We weren't sure what to expect when this restaurant was recommended to us but we will absolutely go back next time we are in the Provo area. We had the watermelon salad as an appetizer and it was great (big slices of melon with a very nice, light dressing...very refreshing). Entrees were the Roast Pork (a little salty but very yummy) and the Skirt Steak (cooked perfectly), add in a side of mashed potatoes and were were very happy at the end of our meal. Just 2 blocks from the main street in old historic downtown Provo...so super accessible.

“Very Very Good!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We went to communal for our 3 year anniversary, and I gotta tell ya, it was delightful. The service was very good, the food was extremely tasty, and overall we loved it. My wife was talking about it for days. It is pretty pricey, no doubt, but for special occasions, I would say it's a fun place to splurge a little.

We got the Wagyu Skirt Steak, Yukon Gold Mashed Potato, Crispy Polenta / Herbed Aioli, and a salad that has Asparagus in it, but I'm not seeing it on their website right now, it could have been rotated out, but it was the best part! All of it was very good! We just shared everything.

Give it a try!

We stopped for lunch because of the good reviews. They were correct! The food was amazing. The service was great and the attention to detail was awesome. Even the restrooms had interesting decor. Loved it!
