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.

I live around the corner from common table and have been going here for years. After my last few trips, ive decided it needs an honest evaluation.

Vibe- for dallas its pretty chill, not great, but its good especially for uptown where most places are just crammed with Frat bros

Service- I honestly often have great servers, but the bartenders can range from amazing to down right awful. Last night the lady serving was basically grunting at me instead of using words

Selection- So on any given night the beer selection is mediocre to decent. For special events it can be amazing. I really like that they have 10 and 20 ounce pours, and the prices are decent. They have a special bottle list, but they dont actually have most of those bottles on a given night.... so yeah

Food- Ive had some great food hear (P.I.G) to some of the worst (they literally served us rotten mussels). So im not giving them a great score here

Overall- I go here alot. Its got a decent patio, craft beer, and its close to my house. For Dallas its pretty decent, but i feel compared to beer bars in most other cities, it kind of sucks
