Pros: - tasting menu (1 amuse bouche, 5 mini mains, 2 desserts) - salmon confit was fantastic - scallops (I usually don't like scallops, but these were tender, buttery, and not fishy) - well-timed courses - high-quality food and surprisingly filling despite portion sizes Cons: - pricey for the portion sizes Bottom line: really good food, but not quite in my budget. Definitely recommend for a special occasion

The staff was amazing and the atmosphere is very cozy and inviting. The food tasted great, with a good use of layers of flavors and textures. The portions lend themselves to a tapas style of ordering. My favorite part of the meal was the desserts so don't miss out on ordering one or two.

The tasting menu with pairings here are absolutely perfect. Each course is fascinating and unique and, more importantly, delicious. Service is great, staff is supremely knowledgable of ever portion of the process from farm to table. Definitely worth the splurge and hopefully your desert is one of their smores *yum*

Super fancy restaurant, great if you are looking for the luxurious service. A bit higher on the price point, don't go if you are super hungry. Portion sizes are small, meant to be a "taste."

Of course, the portions here are small, but the food is quite good. The tasting menu is definitely worth looking into. They provide a variety of different options, and I'm all about that sampling! Overall, I'd say this is definitely a must try if you've got the time.

Honestly, not sure what the hype is about this place. It is super expensive, the portions will starve even the birds :-)) . Food is good but not worth that price. That's all I have to say ;-))

We had a wonderful meal at Commonwealth restaurant in November 2012. We started off with an amuse bouche which comprised a few small cubes of some tuna-esque fish in some preparation I can't recall although I do remember my rvery positive eaction and it was served with a fairly dry Cava [9/10]. The first course of the tasting menu was venison tartare, huckleberry horseradish, arugula, juniper cracker served with a glass of frappato (Tami, '11, Sicily, Italy). The horseradish was dotted on the venison as small spheres and it gave a lovely spicy bite to the venison which was well match with the peppery wine [10/10]. The second course was perhaps the weakest (relatively speaking): octopus, almond gazpacho, bone marrow, saffron-preserved lemon emulsion served with a disgusting glass of chenin blanc (Domaine Deletang, dem-secm '07 Montlouis-Sur-Loire, France). It looked fabulous on the plate and the octopus was very nicely charred and fairly tender. The octopus was too cold for my liking (lukewarm is perfectly for charred octopus but I think cold is wrong) and the other bis and bites on the plate did not come together to make a coherent dish. The wine was too sour for my taste and the food. [6/10]. The third course was beets, fromage blanc, pumpernickel, watercress, sorrel, smokey hay oil (really, I am not making this up) with a glass of tempranillo (JC Vizcarra, '09 RIbera del Duero, Spain). The beets were cooked in several different ways and the combination with soft fromage blance and the bite of the pumpernickel worked very well and the temperanillio was an excellent accompaniment. Susan does not usually like beets (beetroot) but even she cleaned her plate. Each course had a convincing explanation of why the matching wine was chosen. [8/10]. Another highlight of the evening were the sweetbreads, asian pear, brussel sprout, celery root-chestnut veloute servered with a glass of pinot noir (Alghren Vineyards, '09 Santa Cruz Mountains, California). These were by far the best sweetbreads I have ever eaten: they were very soft and delicately flavored and they had a gorgeous light crust which gave them a very satisfying crunch. Utterly devine. The match with the root-chestnut veloute was inspired and the small hard balls of asian pear added a wonderful sweet touch to the soft sweetbreads. The pinot noir had a wonderful slightly musky aroma and was very well matched to the dish. [10/10]. The fifth dish was carrot-orange sorbet served with ginger soda. The carrot favor was very intense (and I suspect the carrots were not peeled which lead to a nice earthy taste). The ginger soda was also very good but I am sure it was also 0% ABV. [7/10]. The last dish was a spectacular dessert: peanut butter semifreddo, chocolate ganache, frozen popcorn served with a glass of tawny port (Niepoort, Duro, Portugal). It tasted like a head on collision between an ice-choc and a snickers bar with stunning results. I often find that even in fancy restaurants desserts are not made to the same quality as the preceding dishes but this is absolutely not the case at Commonwealth. It is worth coming here just to eat this dessert. The tawny port was a nice match but this dish was so outstanding that you could have it without wine and not loose much. [10/10].
