We are in this area often and this was our first visit to The Common Man but it will certainly not be our last. The ambience with a roaring fireside table in a converted barn and the staff from beginning to end added to a most amazing meal. The cocktails were unique and had choices for all of us ranging...

My family and I ate here Friday night. The drinks and food were all awesome. Service was fantastic. Each of our meals was perfect. Little bit pricey but totally worth the price.

The ambience was great - very cozy - nice fireplace - high ceilings - well decorated. Very nice place - we would go back. As for our dinner, we ordered the Caesar salad but the anchovy taste was too strong so we sent it back and waited for our entrees. By surprise, the manager brought over another appetizer which was...

A large group of us are just back from one of the best dinners that we have ever had. While we have been there many times previously, our meal was particularly good. As always the setting is rustic and makes one feel at home, but this time nine of us sat around a round wheel table and were helped by... More

Family of 9 had dinner tonight in this old favorite of ours tonight. We've been eating in this building a few times a year for over forty years. Tonight the kitchen was at its absolute best. 5 different appetizers, 6 different entrees. Everything was cooked perfectly. Never seen before items were delicious and standards were spot on. Service was excellent... More

As part of the BackRoads Vermont Bicycle Tour, we were treated to dinner at The Common Man. The restaurant during our visit was closed except for group dining (there were 20 people in our group). This restaurant has a wonderful lodge/rustic feel about it (with a wonderful large fireplace!) and the staff was attentive and addressed any needs during our... More

Call ahead to make sure that they are open. Fabulous food in an old barn with an atmosphere that is truly unique. I've been to this establishment for small intimate dinners as well as group ones. Both are enjoyable.

A special restaurant in an old barn complete with crystal chandeliers. Exceptional food in an unusual setting. Check on days it is open since it is not open every day.

This husband and wife team really know how to make food and create an inviting atmosphere. Had fried chicken and bbq pork. Even the rolls are incredible.

What a gem this place is! When you walk in, you see a beautiful post-and-beam barn, with dark wood and a fireplace. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable, encouraging me to order items that I ordinarily wouldn't order. I ordered a pasta with a lobster sauce, which wasn't too heavy and was finished perfectly. I also ordered rolls served... More

The Common Man Restaurant is located in Warren, Vermont, in the heart of Mad River Valley, between Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. Sited in a 19th century barn, the dining room is elegant in its simplicity. With hand-hewn beams framing an open hearth fireplace, the 100-seat restaurant is inviting and intimate.

Since the original owners, the Orsini family, opened their doors in the 1960s, 3209 German Flats Road has been a popular place for locals, visitors, and skiers to gather for a quality Vermont dining experience. Now in its fourth generation of operation, the current owners, Chef Adam Longworth and Lorien Wroten, are working hard to re-energize this Vermont dining institution with small town hospitality and world class cuisine.
