    Food was very good - portions are pretty large. Baked brie appetizer is huge and is excellent! Service was great - super nice and all of the recommendations were spot on. It was a little slow - but it was a theater night so we all hit at the same time. But i will try them again - food was solid

We appreciated how attentive our server was and we appreciated how friendly everyone always is when we dine. Thank you all for helping to make it such a great end to the night.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Commonwealth. The staff were great and the food was excellent. A nice restaurant near the Fox has been needed and we are glad it is there, plus our stay in the hotel. It was a great evening. The only slight takeaway was sitting near the door to the kitchen, which made the noise level a little higher. But, we were closer to all the wait staff and they were all great.

    Pre-show dinner was a pleasant surprise. The food was exceptional. The baked half-chicken was the star. But the truffle fries, burger and cocktails were super too!! Service was on point. Such a quick walk to the Fox. Great time!!

    Dined here for the first time. We were seated immediately and our server was excellent. We had the Caesar Salad and the Red Snapper. Both were nice size servings and were delicious! After dinner we went upstairs to check out the Art Bar! Fabulous view of the city . Location is great, just a short walk from The Fox.

    Oh my, the portions! We dined at Commonwealth before a show at the Fox and are glad we selected this venue. The menu is unique, and everything was delicious. We highly recommend the spinach artichoke dip, strip steak and carrot, ginger soup if they have it. Our server, Matthew was fantastic, and while the location, menu, and experience feel very upscale, the atmosphere is very relaxed. We were so pleased, I made a reservation there again before a show next week.

    We would go to commonwealth again. It was good to very good. Menu is somewhat limited. Burger was excellent. Shrimp and grits were good, not great. Apple flatbread appetizer was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere of the location was sparse with uncomfortable chairs, sticky floors and overall lack of any warmth. Small changes in decor, a few more options on the menu would go a long way.

    We chose Commonweath because it was close to Jazz St. Louis. The noose was deafening before the crowd left for the Fox; after that there were few people left. Our food was delicious, but I would like to see some lighter dishes featured in the entree section.

    Better choice of Music. More sophisticated. You are catering to a show crowd. Probably short on help, however, making sure the food was hot would help.

    Conveniently close to the Fox Theater. This was the main value for the restaurant. Our server was very attentive and the meal was well paced. The food was subpar other than the brie appetizer. The grits were awful and were more like gluey mashed potatoes. The shrimp were small and overcooked. The roast chicken was a bit hilarious because both people in our party who ordered it remarked on how little meat was actually on the chicken. All the mains were very over salted. So, due it proximity to the theater, I would recommend CW but do not expect much of thr food. Perhaps just order drinks and appetizers.

    Food was great, lamb is slightly gamey. Seafood ravioli was a winner. Service was good, however we waited over an hour from the time we were seated to receiving entrees and the restaurant didn’t appear to be busy or overwhelmed. Otherwise, I’d go again. Unfortunately didn’t get to try dessert due to the long wait for the entrees.

There was a good variety of food items on menu which all looked amazing. The drink menu had lots of good options as well. We had the Shrimp and Grits and Chicken Ceasar Salad. Both were delicious!!

    We were very disappointed in our evening. The restaurant was woefully understaffed - our server was also serving every other table AND acting as hostess for the guests. Our server was delightful, but because of being overworked, was very slow to bring us our wine, take our order, bring us our check etc. The food was simply terrible - the truffle fries were cold, the snapper was like a brick - dry and overcooked beyond belief and exceptionally "fishy" tasting. Absolutely inedible. The vegetables were lovely, simply not enough. There was enough rice to feed a small country. The chicken was fine, nothing exceptional. We were able to get in and out to get to the Fox on time, but it was not a great experience overall.

    Food and table service was great. Bar service crazy slow. Only one bartender on a Saturday night during a major concert at the Fox across the street. But bar didn’t seem that crowded. So maybe they needed a second bartender. Or maybe the one they had just very slow. Not sure. I’d go back.

    Drinks and food were good. Our server was sweet and friendly. There was either a problem in the kitchen/bar or they were understaffed because we were almost late to a show at the Fox as our food arrived at 7:45pm. We arrived 6:30pm and placed orders quickly. Grand is closed and inaccessible in front of Commonwealth due to construction complicating the situation. Will definitely go again. Great option before Fox show.
