This is a really cool place. Hip, urban contemporary, super cool decor, and a fantastic patio. The location is very nice too. Located on Fairmount on a tree-lined street with plenty of shade.

The quality of the finish outs, patio, inside decor, food, beer, and cocktails is all top notch. I don't really have any complaints, but it's hard issuing a perfect score to anything for me.

Service was pretty good. A little bit slow at times, but fairly friendly and given the age of the place (brand new) they were somewhat educated on beer as well which is good to see.

Selection pretty awesome really, especially for a new place. While they don't have 100 taps, they're not trying to be that kind of place and they shouldn't be. A wide range of things across many styles, I was impressed to see a couple of beers I haven't seen anywhere else in town on tap.

Food was really very good. I thought the portions were a bit small for the money, but that's the new thing. Small plates, high quality, with a lower price tag than a fine dining place but most of the quality.

Overall a really great establishment that I'll be 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
