We went here last Mother's Day and it was packed. I had heard about this place many times and it lived up to its reputation for delicious food. Our service was a little slow and it was quite noisy inside but, as previously mentioned, it was also very full so probably understandable.

My family and I used to go here for every special occasion. We loved it. I could eat my weight in the bread they leave on your table.

But then they upped the prices by about $10 a plate and cut their vegetarian dishes. With four vegetarians in the family, that meant that we could not longer afford to go. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for these facts.

Very sad, because this place is top notch. Probably the best restaurant I have ever been to. Highly recommended for a special night out.

Don't let the word Grill fool you, the Common Grill is anything but a common grill! They have outstanding food prepared by a chef renown all over MI. The food is wonderful, fresh and prepared with care. The wait staff is experienced, quick to take and serve your order.

The restaurant area can be a little noisy, and there is off street parking in the back. It is also very close to the Purple Rose Theater, which makes it a nice place to go after that.

On the way to Chicago, I visited this restaurant based on the recommendation of my friend who previously worked in Chelsea, MI. We skipped the appetizers and went straight to soup, which was a little fishy but still pretty nice.
I ordered a daily special risotto with saffron cream sauce. It had lobster, shrimp, and scallops in it; all of them were pretty good, especially the scallops. But the best part was the risotto, perfectly cooked and accompanied with the right sauce. Grilled chicken fettucine with red bell pepper cream sauce was also a good selection. Fettucine was cooked aldente and the sauce was great, and the chicken wasn't even the issue anymore. The chicken stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and pancetta was an interesting and tasted delicious.
The only thing we were disappointed about was the steak. We ordered ribeye, and though it was an okay dish, compared to the other dish it was a disappointment, because the others were so good. I recommend the pasta dish or seafood; the majority of the menu are anyway. I am considering visiting this restaurant everytime I drive from Michigan to Chicago. Also our waitress was very attentive and kind, which was the last pinch to move this to a higly recommended category instead of just recommended.

Cons: Steak was mediocre

They don't take reservations. There, I got the one negative out of the way. Everything else is perfect, from the decor, to the location, to the attentive and educated service. The food is fantastic. The seafood and pastas are outstanding. The appetizers are inventive, tasty, and original. The desserts are decadent, lush, delicious. Even the coffee tastes great. Go, enjoy, write me a thank you note.

Pros: Food, atmosphere, service - what else is there?

Cons: No reservations, so wait can be long

This is wonderful restaurant with a HUGE selection of fish and wine. Very good menu not only including fish, but other yummy entree's as well. The staff is professional and friendly. Prices are a little high, but its a great place to go for a special occasion. THe only thing I don't really like is that it is an open room where everyone eats and its quite loud.

We regularly drive 80 miles for dinner at the Common Grill. The pasta is always very flavorful, the fish incredible and fresh and the service is very attentive. Continues to be my Michigan favorite.

Cons: , Usually pretty loud

There's too much that's right about this restaurant. The food is fabulous. Even though I've heard the meat dishes are pretty good, I haven't gotten over how good the seafood is. The chilean seabass and paella is unbelievable. And, the service is so consistent, you'd think they were robots. There are only two negative things to say about Common Grill. One, it's really hard to talk there because they have wooden floors and it's very loud there. Two, it's in Chelsea, so it's a bit of a haul, even for me, living in Ann Arbor.

Pros: Fantastic Food, Great Service, Well Managed

Cons: Busy, Far Away, Noisy
