Great service, biggest scallops I've ever seen, awesome ambience and location... worth the extra bucks to have a special meal/night!

My friend and I dined at The Commonwealth recently. After finishing our uninteresting food, we were wrapping up our conversation when we were rudely asked to vacate our seats. We were absolutely astounded and dumbfounded. In all of our dining experiences we have NEVER been asked to "move along," for the convenience of a restaurant in order to boost their profits by turning over a table. In other words, they do not respect nor value your patronage. There are far too many superior restaurants in Charlottesville that will offer a better dining experience. I can assure you, we will never dine there again. I might also add, if you are hoping to have a conversation without shouting to one another, look elsewhere.

I've eaten here twice and while my companions have enjoyed their meals, both of mine were bad. Not mediocre, but bad. I'd be hard pressed to return. The service and atmosphere are terrific so maybe it is a great place to stop in for a drink before eating elsewhere.

Spontaneous decision to try this place one Friday evening. Maybe just too busy, but my daughter's grilled shrimp were under cooked, likewise with my son's steak. My steak cut was more fatty and I picked at it. Management offered to remove my steak cost....
We never went upstairs to the SkyBar, but it was certainly busy and hopping. Decide on your own.

We walked around the mall area and this menu appeared most interesting. We sat outside on the lower level which was quite compared to upstairs. Steak cooked just right. Blackened seabass with shrimp etoufee was delicious. Good wine selection,not inexpensive.
