The food was excellent, the service first-rate, and the setting comfortable and pleasant. Although the restaurant was large and well filled, it was never too noisy.

Extremely limited menu. However, what is offered is very good. Our party of four was very pleased with all our (different) dishes and would not hesitate to return. Parking lot can be a challenge.

Casual dress code. We were there a week before Christmas and didn't need a reservation but it's so close to sugar bush and a terrific place, that I'm sure you'll have a long wait without reservations during peak season.

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.
