After hearing all the great things about this restaurant, I was expecting more than a crowded room where you couldn't hear conversation, a 30 minute wait, and disappointing food. We ordered the dorade for 2 off the "things to share menu" after showing us a whole fish, they then bring out two very unremarkable small sized entrees that were the same as ordering two fish entrees in any other restaurant. For $52 for a white fish, I expect a little more- it's not something to share it's just two entrees. Here's one less person that will be waiting 30 minutes.

I still have the taste of homemade pretzels in my mouth. I love this spot. Good food without pretension- how can you go wrong? The mixologist esp. has it right - try cherry lane- it is fresh cherries in an alcoholic drink form. The bread basket is on par with the best in the city. The food is fresh and seasonal - if you like beets try the beet salad the goat cheese is amazing. I look forward to going back again.

Went here on a Saturday night with another couple. It has to be one of the most unpleasant dining experiences we've ever had from the moment you walk in, down to the waiter/service & the overall atmosphere. No one seemed to know what they are doing in that place. The food was fine, but not worth the price.

We ate here on a Saturday night. Food overall was good but VERY overpriced. I had a 19 dollar oyster appetizer that had maybe 3 tiny oysters. The 27 dollar fish entree was tiny and my wife had an inedible piece of veal.

So glad that the beautifully renovated Commerce is finally open. We were there the on the third night of service - food was a bit uneven sweet potato tortellini (a throwback to Moore's March days) was delicious. Chocolate mousse was superb in taste, presentation and texture. A bit too much salt on the cavatelle, and a bit too strong a taste to the choux braisees/hen of the wood accompaniment to the chicken. Sous vide chicken was soft and delectable. Can't wait to go back once they have the kinks ironed out.

The food was a bit uneven, although I give it a pass as we were there the third evening they were open. A few items were familiar variations from Harold Moore's tenure at March. The sweet potato raviolis are terrific, as is the heavenly chocolate mousse - marvelous texture, just enough to please, not big enough to become tedious. The interior is restful and beautiful - it doesn't look newly renovated.
