The Common Table is an eclectic, slightly irreverant shine on fine brews coupled with incongruent food.
Delightfully similar to the Old Monk with itís chalkboard and large selection of craft brews, The Common Table also throws in a delightful patio and an exceptional - although oddly chosen - group of menu items. I tried the Buffalo meatballs last time and they shocked me with the pleasant texture and balanced taste of the buffalo to cheese which paired very well with the hazelnut lager i was enjoying at the bar.
In addition, each trip to The Common Table has someone included a conversation with a stranger. Not sure why, but thereís a communal spirit at TCT (yeah, you know me) which brings people together quicker than I normally experience at other establishments.
If Corey (one of the two owners) is there, specifically request the Cottage Cheese - I wonít ruin the surprise here, but itís a priceless yet inexpensive treat. Pair it with a Dogfish 90.
Do a beer flight. You wonít be sorry.

Small, cozy little spot in a renovated old house - a little tight inside, but a decent-sized outdoor patio, as well - overall nice vibe, but super-popular, so be prepared to get friendly with strangers - decent draft list - other have complained about a lack of Texas beer, but they had a nice variety when I was here - the prices on the beers, however, were quite high (8 bucks was not uncommon) - the food was more reasonable in price, came in large portions, and was quite tasty - my chicken-fried steak was one of the best Iíve ever had - service was slow and didnít really know much about the beer - overall, though, a nice place for a delicious dinner and good (albeit overpriced) beer.

Bar with a good, albeit predictable craft beer lineup. Few local beers. Food is a step up from bar food. Bro-factor four.

Came for brunch, plenty of spots available at open. Took a seat at the bar, nice view of the whole place. Service was ok, a bit slow and not super friendly or engaging about the beer. The draft list was ok, but only about 5 Texas beers, the rest were commonly available standards. They did have 512 Five which I didnít see anywhere else. The food was decent. I had the chicken and waffles. The chicken was great, hot and perfectly seasoned. The waffle could have been from a hotel, nothing to write home about. Ok spot, but canít say anyone needs to come here.

Stopped on a Thursday night, during Thursday night football, had no trouble grabbing a spot at the bar, but had surprising issue finding parking, ended up parking 3 blocks away, due to unfamiliarity with the area. Seated at the bar, I grabbed a short pint (10oz) which is a nice offering, lots of texas local brews and some other nice stuff on tap, nothing earth shattering though. Some drugged out white girl next to me, talking about being on xanax then trying to slug 1/2 st. germaine 1/2 white wine sprtizer.. food was okay, nothing great your basic bar sandwich. the 10oz pours are really whats nice here, nice patio and upscale crowd. on my 3 block walk back to my car i spotted 2 lamborghiniís leaving the steakhouse just up the street.

Visited twice in February 2012.
First time was at the bar for samples and food, which were both good. The place is a little more upscale than your usual bar. They offer samplers which is nice and theyíre happy to answer questions about the beer and make suggestions. I made the mistake the first time of not getting the grilled cheese sandwich so I fixed that the second time. They had also rotated some taps by that time so there was some different stuff, even if none of it was new to me. The patio out front is pretty nice too. Unfortunately there were some irritatingly loud people at the next table.

Anything negative is quashed by their selection, rotations, support of locals, and most importantly, the staffs knowledge of beer. There are so many places in Dallas with good selections and staffs that haven't been taught a thing....or care to know anything about the product their selling.

Cozy and hip little joint, close to uptown and right down the street from Kung Fu. Decent selection of taps with a large bottle list, all of which, was reasonably priced. They offer pours in 10 and 20 oz, which I thought was kind-of cool. You canít get flights, but the half pours were nice. Tap list was IPA heavy when I was there, but they seem to rotate offerings frequently. Food was great (preferred over Meddlesome Moth) and the service was wonderful, as well. Nice little hangout with a great patio, that I am sure would be better Fall-Spring. Definitely worth checking out.

Visited mid afternoon on a Wednesday. I came from the Finger Man, and its only a few blocks between the two. Nice big patio deck out front, U shaped bar inside and plenty of tables. Seemed more of a restaurant layout, though I am sure it functions well as either a bar or restaurant. There were about 24 well chosen beers on draft. The food menu looked interesting, upscale bar food, though I didnít eat. I appreciated the option of 10 oz / 20 oz pours for all beers. The service prompt and knowledgeable. Chill place, I liked it.

Very close to Meddlesome Moth and somewhat similar although a more laid back of a place. They had a better beer list but the food was nothing special. Sat at the bar and ordered a sampler and smaller pours. They seem to have a lot of special beer events as well. This place also pushes valet parking on you but there is plenty of parking nearby. Must be a Dallas thing.

Iíve been a couple times over the past few months. Nice bar area. Selection of about 30 or so taps with plenty of variation. They offer half-pints which is great for tasting a variety of beers. Food is really good. Parking is valet mostly. Worth a quick cab trip if you are staying downtown. Good addition to the Dallas beer scene.
