    Really wacky decor in this new hotel. We live in New Orleans and asked the front desk to see the pool on the 13th floor so we could recommend the hotel to our frequent visitors. Denied. Really?? The food was terrific and the service sublime. One thing: the tap water is horrendous so you have to pay for a liter of water or sparkling water left at your table. Oh - and our waitress managed to get us up to the pool to see the view!

    I had reservations book a week in advance for a nice dinner date. When I arrived, there was no table. I had to be seated at the bar right in front of the sink. However, the food definitely made it for it. The hamburger was the best I have ever had. And the gulf fish was amazing. The bill was only $70. But the menu is pretty pricy

    We had a 7:45 PM reservation. We arrived early so we decided to have a drink in the bar. I ordered an absolute and tonic and while watching the bartender make it he ran out of absolutely pouring the vodka and reached over and grabbed a different brand to finish it. When I confronted him that he poured two different vodkas into the glass he hesitated but knew he was caught in a lie and I asked him to remake it. He then had to go to the back room to get a second bottle of Absolut he was just lazy. The dining experience started off fine and the waitress was very nice and friendly however our appetizer of steam clams and chorizo was cold. We waited almost an hour for our entrées to come and when I questioned the waitress she said there was a large group ahead of us but then immediately brought out our entrées. I ordered the sea scallops which she recommended and they were ice cold when they arrived at the table. When she asked how our dinner was I told her that the scallops were cold and all she did was apologize? Needless to say I will not be back

    The environment is very hip, but with class. The lobby/bar/restaurant area was a fun mix of LA and Nola. We went for Saturday brunch. The flavors were simple, but creative. The portions were moderate, which is in contrast to the norm in the area. We loved everything, except the grits. We plan to return soon!

    If you’re going to the Britney brunch, don’t go for the food - it was very average. I make better breakfast at home lol. The chicken and waffles are a disgrace.

    Brunch was great and while there weren’t many options on the menu, my party enjoyed what we ordered. The burger and fries were great and so was the breakfast sandwich. We also ordered the mimosa sampler, which was a fun shareable for the table. My only issue (and not sure if this is a restaurant issue or Open Table one) is that when we arrived we were nicely warned that the kitchen closed at 2pm. So it was a little uncomfortable since we had to make sure to put our orders in pretty fast once everyone arrived. I wish there was some notice on Open Table or there was an earlier cut off time for reservations - I would’ve never booked that late in consideration of the kitchen staff. Otherwise, we had a great time, our waiter Sterling was so nice, and we’ll be back…much earlier next time!

    The menu/food could use some revamping. The food was overpriced for the portion sizes and taste, though their french fries were amazing. (the only thing we really liked) Also, don't get the honey lavender drink if you are allergic/don't like strawberries. We tasted no lavender and were surprised it was a pink drink with strawberries when we received it. All-in-all, the experience was 3/5 because the decor is sooo cute, but the menu needs a real New Orleans chef because it's not up to par with my expectations of eating at a nice restaurant downtown.

    Interior and ambience is good and has a clever, young vibe. Service is uneven. For example, our server didn't want to deal with the fact that each of the three guests that ordered a certain cocktail, absolutely hated it and implied that we shouldn't have ordered it. We never got satisfaction on that issue really and were made to pay for two of the three drinks and an extra shot of Cointreau that we hoped would help (it didn't). Food was average. High quality ingredients for the meat dishes, but the sides tasted like they had been ignored. On a bright note, everyone liked their dessert. Overall I would think a high quality restaurant like this would be more responsive to their customers' satisfaction and not to project an attitude of indifference. There are other places to eat after all.

    My first time at the Commons Club, and I was very favorably impressed. The space is very attractive, all three dishes were excellent, the beets, heirloom carrots, & mussels and chorizo (the carrots were especially different and creative), with good wine by the glass choices for reasonable prices, and friendly and attentive service from Jason at the bar (there is also ample table seating). Especially if you are staying west of Canal Street, you should check this out.

    I don't know if they're understaffed or have not been properly trained, but the service is terrible. I've had more attentive service at Waffle House. The hotel and restaurant itself is well appointed and feels luxurious, but the service level has to be improved for this place to survive. The food was tasty, but not really special. I cannot in good conscience recommend this place unless the service is improved.
