Inside an old barn-like structure but nicely layed out with a fireplace and sort of smoky atmosphere. Great menu, and you pay a lot for very good quality meals. An exceptional place for a very special occasion.

The restaruant is no longer open. They do one night a month or so and that is it. Maybe they will open in the ski season. What a shame, was a nice place to go.

The Common Man is a unique establishment in the Mad River Valley, that has evolved to periodic culinary events. When they are open, it is a real treat. We enjoyed an Italian night last week with a four course dinner and had a wonderful experience!...More

Do not confuse this Vermont gem with the mediocre chain in New Hampshire. This is a gourmet, stand alone delicious restaurant with sophisticated meal presentation and fine quality ingredients. We are winter regulars. We go as much as we possibly can. Every appetizer and entree...More

The three pasta options were amazing. And paired with a Caesar salad and $5 wine option, a great value.

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.
