As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a smile by the young waitress and taken into the restaurant where we had the pick of the tables which was great. The service was fantastic and the meals exceeded expectations. Thank you to the team at The Commons, we'll definitely return.

The staff were helpful and efficient. The pork belly was perfect - melt in your mouth but crispy on top. It went very well with the barley/ parsnip mix and slaw. Nicely presented. The chicken kiev was also very tasty and crispy and had just the right zing of the chilli - not too much to overpower other flavours. We had steamed veg to go with which had just the right amount of crunch.

Delicious food and lovely staff. I had the lamb rumb and it was cooked to perfection. It would of being one of tastiest lamb dishes I have ever had.
My husband had the fish of day and he thoroughly enjoyed this.

Nice ambience, was a bit cold inside we had to keep our coats on (note to staff to turn wall heaters on). Food was great - we had the lamb dish, fish of the day and scallops as entree. Nice flavours. Would go back again

We love, love, love The Commons. The food is delectably divine. I had the pork belly which was full of flavor and the barley rice and apple puree added to the happy moment of eating. My partner had the fish of the day which was also quite sublime. Good portions, great service, in a lovely environment. Highly recommended - and right on our doorstep - in the heart of Takapuna. Thank you!

It was great to have an early dinner. The food was really nicely presented and very good. The service was great. They showed us to our table as soon as we arrived. There was a good selection of wines and suggested wines with each main meal. We would definitely go back.

Food was cooked and presented really well, however the current menu is pretty limited and uninspiring.

Service was fine, except for the staff doing a personality test on the computer behind the bar and telling us there's a cutlery shortage so they won't be giving us fresh cutlery after our entrees. We were the only people in the restaurant.....

Everything was ok. There were no staff present to greet and seat us when we arrived- we had to go looking for a waitperson. Had to ask for things like water on table etc and then it still never arrived. Lamb salad was good amount of lamb but hardly any blue cheese or other ingredients (but just loads of mesclun)...good for $12 but would've been disappointed if paying $24. Was ok but have had better experiences at other places in Takapuna.

We had a wonderful evening at The Commons. You can always judge a restaurant by the bread platter and The Commons did a fantastic job. Best basil pesto I've had. The lamb main had a generous piece of lamb with tasty sauces but potatoes needed salt. Cool vibes- would love to come during the day and sit in The Gardens. We'll definitely be back and grateful to discover this place through First Table.

Great first experience with First Table. I was worried that we'd get rushed through the night but we enjoyed a very leisurely evening with no pressure at all. It had also occurred to me that upon arrival we might find out there were some limitations to what we could order due to it being a discounted deal. No such problem at all - the menu was vast and the food was gorgeous. Wonderful service also - really friendly lovely staff. Great experience and we'll definitely be booking again.

The Commons provides a very nice atmosphere and great food. Steaks and accompanying sauces were very good. Only critique was that the creme brulee was very runny and not set properly (still tasted good though). We'd definitely return again.
