My son and I came to CQ for and early dinner. We had out favorite waiter, Justin. He was great, he made an excellent recommendation on wine. The food was amazing. My son had a great burger and I had the vegetable platter. Great neighborhood place. I feel like my name is "Norm"!

We LOVE Monday burger night. The burgers are fantatastic. Our server, Trey, was attentive and and accomodating. Side of crispy brussels sprouts were great as is the homeade buttermilk dressing. Best burger in the ATL. We will surely miss Chris. He is so personable and always welcomes us with a smile.

We've been to Common Quarter a couple of times and have enjoyed it each time. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have Celiac Disease and the Gluten Free options are good and the waitstaff is knowledgeable. This time I had the thai curry pumpkin soup, side salad, mashed potatoes and broccoli and they were all very good. My husband had a burger and the other couple had a steak and the grilled cheese sandwich. The guys appreciated the assortment of beers available and I had a nice glass of wine. We'll definitely be back!

I don't understand what is wrong with this restaurant. I never have problems with my meal anywhere and I go out to eat a lot, but the last 4 times, there has been something wrong with my entree. They always try to resolve it, but usually prepare another entree that also isn't very good or has some strange issue with it.

The "Ode to South Philly" sandwich is awesome. It is not a traditional cheese-steak (and that's the best part), but no matter - it's a thousand times better... and I'm from Philly and a cheese-steak snob. This was one of the tastiest sandwiches I've ever had. And the Parmesan garlic fries were great, too.

The meal it self was pretty good. It has a side of red cabbage. However the portion of that sides was very small. I would estimate to tablespoons. Now that's small. Not sure why. Red cabbage should be pretty cheap.
I had a glass of wine. I would estimate the pour to be 2 oz. It too was substandard for such a nice restaurant.
I'm sure I will give them another try, but if that does not work out I cross them off my list.

we went for restaurant week... the fixed menu was definitely a value and a good way to sample the menu. I found the wine list shallow [whites] and rather expensive by the bottle. Our server disappeared often and several items we asked for never appeared. Another server actually picked up the slack at our table twice. [BTW the restaurant was not that crowed-so no good reason for slack] Liked food enough to try again - so hopefully better next time.

I had Salmon and although it was Cooked perfectly to medium rare, the coating and char overpowered the flavor and the side had no flavor.
My wife had the chicken schnitzel which was good.
Wine list not very impressive.
Service was spotty and inattentive. My wife asked for box to go and they mixed watery greens from a different bowl with the chicken dish. Dessert order was brought out wrong.

Welcome to fine dining in the suburbs! Unexpectedly superb food in East Cobb. Lamb meatball appetizer surpassed the lamb meatballs of a well-known downtown Italian restaurant. Entrees of braised pork and chicken schnitzel were tender and large portions, with just the right amount of sauces. Dessert: peanut butter pie, YUM. Rice pudding, very flavorful and soft. All dishes accompanied by well-thought-out sides and sauces--not fancy for the sake of being fancy, just good food several notches above what we expect in the 'burbs. Pleasant and well-lighted atmosphere (I like to see my food!), and excellent service. Menu with beef, chicken, pork and seafood--something for everyone. Best meal we've had in a long time, downtown restaurants not excepted. We will be back! Tell your friends!

Sometimes when you go to a place based on high expectations from hearing so much about it, it can be a bummer. I am pleased to say that was not the case with Common Quarter. Our server was exceptional and so was most of the food. He had the art of being attentive yet not obtrusive perfected. Always in search of a great burger- well, who isn't. I tend to believe that through a couple years of trial and error, I have come very close to making the perfect burger at home as far as the patty is concerned. So, a restaurant burger needs to be at least as good as that for me to want it again. This burger was perfect! The lamb meatball appetizer was great. The meatball itself was good but combining it with polenta made it excellent. We also got the lump crab spaghetti. I found this to be not too great. The flavor was too one-note for me, which made for a great first few bites but it got old real quick. It could have used some texture too. I will definitely be back and try some other things on the menu.

We knew the burger was good so I stepped out a bit and tried side dishes.
The salad sounded great however in execution not so much. The bit Too was excellent as was the succotash. Less than mediocre collards and broccoli. I will stick with the burger or filet.

It was a decent, not huge, buffet for the Sunday Brunch. My son treated me for my birthday and was glad that it was only $18. We were disappointed that OJ was $3 extra, so I drank ginger ale and he had sweet tea.
Was glad to see that they cut the desserts and frittata into small pieces. I deplore the amount of waste in restaurants, so that's a great way for everyone to have a taste of something, and then come back and get more if they really like it.
Our server was friendly and responsive.
I'll be back.

We hadn't been back since the opening months by the had won second place best burger in Best of Atlanta. The burger was wonderful and my husband has a great filet...we ended up trading early on. We opted to sit at the bar, I believe the bartender's name was Sean and he was very personable along with keeping our drinks coming.
