I’ve reviewed The Commune Social so many times that I can’t really do it any more. The quality has still been consistent all these years, even after many changes to seasonal menus.

Service is as good if not, better than before, led by Stan and Summer.

Here are the awesome dishes we tried earlier this year.

Chefs Scott and Kim Melvin were on vacation that day, so the dishes were prepared by the sous chefs and cooks.
