  • The bartender named Nick here is pretty fucking awesome!
  • Local sourced fried chicken sandwich, and a pint of Bold Rock cider = all Virginia lunch of champions! T. Jefferson would totally chow down on this with pride.
  • Ask for an aviation cocktail!
  • Nick is the Golden God of cocktails. Seriously. He makes cocktails like they were made in the golden age of cocktails. He's an artist, a scientist, and a historian of the drink.
  • Best of C-Ville '12: Best Bartender (Nick Crutchfield), Best Bar. Runner-up: Best New Restaurant
  • I've never been disappointed with Commonwealth. They offer a great menu for brunch or any other meal, with lots of variety and flavors!
  • Brunswick sour. Get it. Drink it, love it!
  • Spicy Oyster ap is divine!!
  • Great service. Outdoor seating. Friendly locals. Close to happening bars. Great atmosphere.
  • Check out the rabbit crepes.
  • Nice enough bar but the drinks are expensive and they are not that tasty
  • Dine downstairs for amazing food, then head upstairs to hang out at the Skybar. An entirely open air bar and lounge!
  • Try the fried chicken sandwich at skybar. You wont be disappointed.
  • Very good, creative dishes. But insanely priced.
  • Best brunch! The commonwealth omelette is delicious.
  • Great beer selection. Nice outdoor space.
  • Pretty meh bar. Has an ok outdoor space though?
  • Great for drinks but be sure to try their sandwiches.
  • Had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits. Little heavy on the sauce and came with very spicy slices of sausage. Good meal for brunch.
  • Being blessed with quite a selection of delicious egg and brunch spots in NYC, I must say, the vegetable omelette rates nicely.
