The Common Stove
Another fantastic meal. Steak was perfectly cooked for me and the s'mores were just amazing! Will spread the word and will be back for more!
Delicious food. Amazing staff. Wonderful atmosphere. Love this restaurant!
Great meal, love the stove!
Great meal, service, and ambiance. I will absolutely be back!
Great vibes here and attentive service. Pickled veggies were crisp and delicious beautifully presented. Beef bun is disappointing and too cold...think of a stale cinnamon bun but beef in lieu of spice. Steak and trout were prepared perfectly and overall food was good but not hot enough when it was served at table. May be growing pains. Mushroom soup to start was exquisite and piping hot and we will certainly be back. Please try this restaurant. Orillia is lucky to have it
I’m not sure I have the words. The flavour, the ambience, the service are all second to none. Whether you’re looking for a casual night out, or a special occasion meal, The Common Stove is my top recommendation.
Food was excellent but pricey. Bring your own wine would be great!
Food was really good I hope it does well in orillia
I wont be back. Too little food for the value, not enough choices. Steak should come with sides. I also felt a bit rushed
Great dinner! Had the Kolapore Springs Trout. Fresh, delicious, perfectly cooked. Great atmosphere. Watching chefs work around the wood fire! Service warm and friendly. My new favourite Orillia spot! Will try the steak to share next time.
I was taken with how beautiful the restaurant is, did not expect such a beautiful room. Every little design detail seems to be thought through and I loved the idea of the wood fire grill being the in the center, added some 'theatre' to the meal!
We didn't sit at the bar but I will next time as it looks so inviting!
The food was great, steak so flavourful and tender, veggie side dishes bang on.
Staff very friendly and knew their stuff. I will be back and will recommend to friends...I already have in fact!!
Gear vibe nice layout . U retesting menu loved all the roasted veggies especially since I’m a vegan . The only thing u would suggest is .. there were several empty tables and I had tried online to book a table but my only option was the counter area was this because I was a solo diner?? I hope not!!
We take our food seriously. We loved Common Stove. Heather our server was of great help. The Filet Mignon was outstanding as was the Tandori Carrots, the Sourdough bread and home made butter and the Chocolate Sorbet (I think it was sorbet).
Pricing is not for the feint of heart but worth every penny. We will be back.
We had a 30oz bone in. It was amazing. Unfortunately the price is a little out there. Other options for sides and apps would be good.
Was expensive with limited menu. But what we had was out of this world. Very tasty. We will be back.
Awesome dinner. Food was exceptional. Best steak I’ve ever had.
Very pleased overall. Limited vegetarian and dessert options. A vegetarian pasta dish would have been a hit...
We just finished our second evening at the Common Stove. It is incredible. For an appetizer, we shared the Burrata, this could be considered one of their signature items. For my entree, I had the filet (for the second time) and my husband and I shared the brocollini ceaser and sweet potato. It is so nice to have a restaurant offering locally sourced foods. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the same as the staff. On this second visit, our 10 month old daughter joined us and was quite content and entertained watching the buzz in the open concept kitchen. This restaurant has filled a void that Orillia had and we are so excited to enjoy it with our growing family for years to come! Thanks, Common Stove!
Once we were explained on how the Common Stove/Common Table works works , it was a pleasurable experience.
Our server was very patient with us! :-) . And patrons should come in with an open mind.
It is obvious that Simon is very passionate about his business and it great to meet him.
Overall It was a unique place to celebrate a birthday and we are glad to have made the choice.
This was our second visit to Common Stove and we were able to view more items on the menu. The meal was very good and if I had 1 suggestion, it would be to have the vegetables warmer then they were. The meat was excellent. Unfortunately, there was no dessert available. We will definitely return to the Common Stove.
Hello there Gordie, Thanks very much for the review, and for saying you'll be back! I'm very sorry we were out of dessert when you were here. We now have four desserts on the menu and a wider selection of dishes overall (including our house burger and fries, and a dish of Kolapore Springs Trout). Looking forward to seeing you soon, Simon
This is a wonderful restaurant - everything was fabulous. I highly recommend it to everyone!
Growing pains are tough to get past, I did enjoy my evening, I felt the cost was a little high but tolerable, my wife’s steak was under cooked, sent it back for more cook time and it was still to red.
Staff was very concerned and did all they could to make it right.
I believe in the near future they will be fine.
On the way out the manager gave us a free steak coupon, wasn’t need but nice of them to recognize.
Regardless of the coupon I would certainly dine there again.
