Went this past Saturday night. Lots of empty tables with 'Reserved' signs on them but we were sill seated rather promptly. Big porch out front and a nice feel in side. I'd say it fits right in with the whole Uptown Dallas scene. Place quickly filled up and by 8 the place was hopping.

Service was prompt, friendly and overall damn good. Our waitress was able to answer my general questions about the beers and even made a few recommendations to others at our table. Beers and food were served quickly. Never sat with an empty beer unless I chose to.

Beer list was nice but nothing earth shattering. A better taplist than you will find at all but a few of the restaurants in Dallas. A few rarer taps but nothing that I have never seen anywhere else before. Bottle list was rather extensive but I never ventured down that road.

Food was decent enough but nothing spectacular. A few interesting takes on different dishes which were fun. Everybody at our table was satisifed with their orders. My only complaint would be that the portions were a touch small given the price, but I was in Uptown so it is about par with anything else in the area.

All in all I really enjoyed the Common Table and I would certainly recommend it to anybody. The next time I am in Dallas it will certainly be on my list of places to go back to.

The only thing holding this place back is the unremarkable food (but typical for a pub) and the average service. Otherwise, at least last night, the beer selection was very impressive. Parabola was served as part of their 3rd anniversary celebration, but as if that wasn't enough, Victory at Sea was on tap along with a nitro bourbon barrel aged sweet stout from a local, Lakewood Brewing. Several other offerings I've had before on tap, but most of them bigger beers at 8% and up. Service was ok, but the bartenders were not terribly chatty and were slow at times to notice my empty glass. A little on the hipster side too. Still, a solid option and perhaps the best one yet that I've experienced in my many visits to Dallas.

You can not beat the selection of tapped beers. 25 beers on tap. Food is good quality. Very good atmosphere. For a traveler looking for a good craft beer establishment, this was right on. Found Common Table by searching BA. There was a Firestone brewery TX debut here while I was in town, couldn't attend, but they tapped Abacus and Double Jack. Can't beat that. I had a 2010 Big Foot Ale, which was great and smoothly aged. If you're looking for great craft beer establishment, this can not be beat. One thing more, use the valet parking.

went here twice during a trip to Dallas. once for their Monday beer dinner and another time just ordered off the menu.

The beer selection is very strong and varied. great local representation and respectable imported and national offerings. The food is absolutely fantastic and isn't horribly priced for the quality and atmosphere.

The service was horribly lacking though. first time, when we asked the server if they could call us a cab we were told to do it ourselves. when we told them were from out of town and asked the phone number they said, "don't you have an iPhone?". the second time, we did the four course beer dinner and it was all brought out in under 45 minutes. courses we being brought out before we had even finished the one in front of us.

so great food and beer. horrible service.

I agree with the previous post,this place should be in the high 90's. The Common Table may only have 20+ taps but they are always pouring an awesome selection of beers. Id rather drink here than any other bar in DFW! I used to frequent the Flying Saucer but the past year and a half i find myself visiting TCT more and more. The bartenders are always quick and friendly,and the food is amazing. Prices are very reasonable,especially on "Brewsday Tuesdays". This is a must stop for anyone visiting Dallas looking for great beer and an awesome atmosphere!!!
