  • Prior to planning my wedding, I had never gone to the Common Man for a meal so this was very new to me. When it came to planning and finding food to serve I stumbled upon them while on Wedding Wire. Little did I know they were exactly what I needed! Not only was their food absolutely delicious, but the service was impeccable. Trisha went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs. Typically there are two entrees served but we opted for a third option, as I and some of our guests are vegan. And if it wasn't enough to add the third option, Trisha took it a step further and allowed for me to offer two types of wellness to the steak. Although the steak is typically served medium rare, she allowed for us to serve some medium well, as some of our guest prefer steak a little more cooked. I was BEYOND pleased to know that they were willing to make these special accommodation even though they didn't have to. Trisha was absolutely great at answering all of our questions and going above an ... Read more

  • My Fiance and I are pretty "vanilla" eaters. We wanted our wedding food to be food we enjoyed but also knew we needed to do better than bar b que or chicken tenders and fries:) We reached out to the Common Man as we love dining at their restaurants and diners and the food quality is always amazing and consistent. We chose to go with buffet and Kali was wonderful about altering the menu offerings to suit what we wanted. The catering package came with dessert and since we were having wedding cake-we utilized our desserts as favors for our guests to take on their bus ride back to the hotel...it was amazing! We had so many compliments on the food and the fact that we had continuous food throughout the reception. The common man was accommodating and helpful every step of the way and the food quality was worth every penny!

  • We chose the Common Man to cater our tented reception in Sunapee, NH. We live out of state so we were unable to make it to the tasting. We selected the haddock, filet mignon and statler chicken and it was delicious! The food was hot and served efficiently! I would definitely recommend using their services for your wedding!

  • Trish and the team at the Common Man Concord were fantastic - I can't speak highly enough about them. We used an offsite venue and hired them for a plated dinner for our wedding reception. From the initial consultations, to the multiple questions we had leading up to the wedding day, to the event itself, Trish and Alicia were responsive, patient, flexible. They guided us with advice regarding the number of apps to get, which foods help up best, and how to best arrange timing. Very reasonable prices (we did short rib and chicken) and felt good to give exposure to a good NH company. On the day of the wedding, they were timely and professional - all the guests raved about the food and the presentation. We did a mix of passed and stationary apps, as well as the dinner and dessert. The team boxed up dinner and dessert since we didn't end up sitting for dinner, and took care of us the whole night.

  • We worked very closely with Trish and her staff. We were so excited to have them come out and absolutely enjoyed having them be a part of our day. The food was raved about and the ice cream sundae bar was a definite hit. Everyone was super professional and even made sure we ate something and offered to make me a sundae while I was running around talking to everyone!!

  • Common Man did an excellent job with offsite catering for our wedding at The Preserve at Chocorua. Kali was very helpful and responsive throughout the process. The group tasting was a fun event, and we enjoyed chatting with other couples while trying the food. On the wedding day, they seamlessly rolled out cocktail hour, the buffet meal, and our late night snacks without a hitch. Everyone raved about the food. Also, the bartenders and servers did an excellent job. Thank you Common Man!

  • We were familiar with the Common Man due to their popularity throughout NH. When our planner recommended them, it required minimal thought on our end. The Common Man was great to deal with throughout the planning process and provided timely, detailed input on their menu including recommendations for different items. We ended up hiring The Common Man for our welcome dinner as well, and we were thoroughly pleased with all the food they served throughout our wedding weekend. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and how professional/friendly the staff was. We would highly recommend The Common Man for your wedding. Their food is delicious, service is professional and they have so many options for a wide range of preferences/dietary restrictions.

  • Two and a half weeks before our wedding my husband and I ran into some issues with our caterer and we ended up not using her. Our wedding planner reached out to Common Man and not only were they able to pull together and cater our wedding at this super short notice they matched our previously selected passed app and plated dinner menu. The service was amazing, the staff was so friendly, and the food was amazing. Our guests absolutely raved about the food at our wedding. We were so impressed by Common Man and cannot thank them enough for pinch hitting at our wedding!

  • The Common Man catered our wedding event in Sugar Hill, NH on 9/24/16 and I am so glad we hired them! We worked with Kali in the months leading up to the event and she was SO thorough and helpful to us. We had four staff members at our event: an event manager, bartender, and two servers. They were all very polite and focused on pleasing our guests. Our venue was quite unique and they were very flexible with the space. We went with a buffet style meal with three entrees (a red meat, stuffed pork, and stuffed sole). People have raved about our food. The servers also actively helped keep our tables clean of leftovers and empty drinks all night. Thank you, Common Man for helping to make our event great!

  • Choosing the Common Man to cater our offsite wedding (we got married at Bishop Farm in Lisbon, NH) was one of the best decisions we made and our guests still talk about how amazing the food was at our wedding. We had a selection of pass hors d'oeuvres and BBQ buffet, and the food was delicious, just as it was when we tried it first at the Fosters Boiler Room, and we had more than enough for all of our guests. Everything was exceptional - Kali, who helped us from day one with planning, responded to all my emails so quickly and was so patient and flexible with us even when we kept making small changes to the menu. This went such a long way because food is such an important part of your wedding, and having people who not only know what they are doing, but are dedicated to provide the best possible service, makes the planning and the day of stress-free and seamless. From start to finish, the service was impeccable, the food outstanding, and they truly helped make our wedding day unforgetta... Read more

  • WOW! Just, wow!!! We loved The Common Man before, and now we love it even more! We cannot begin to explain how easy it was to work with them. They were accommodating of making adjustments, even going to the point of making gluten free - vegan meals for a few of our guests, how awesome is that?! The food was amazing, the staff that was on site during the wedding were extremely professional and save me (the bride) some of the appetizers since I was busy doing photos. Even packed up my half eaten meal for me to finish later. The pricing was great as well!!! We were able to pick up the linens the day before for our DIY wedding & were able to do subrentals for plates & silverware through them as well!

  • We hired the common man / Timber Hill Catering for our wedding in August. The menu was fantastic and they executed a truly phenomenal meal at a new barn venue with no kitchen and only power and potable water hookups. We had a disappointing experience at the tasting (didn't taste anything on the "Timber Hill" menu and food was overcooked, etc) but after this was made known to the managers and executive chef, they held a second tasting for us with specific menu items for our wedding that was executed well. The wedding event itself had SPECTACULAR food. I wish I had more time to eat it, but every bite I had was perfect and my guests truly enjoyed the food. It was the kind of food you'd be excited to go out and pay for at a fancy restaurant, not subpar-catered-for-130-wedding food. THANKS TEAM!

  • We hired The Common Man for our wedding on June 10, 2017. We knew exactly what we wanted to serve at our wedding and approached them with a very specific menu. They were perfectly happy for us to choose items that were not on their standard menu, but it took some negotiation to agree on portions/prices for what we wanted. This was stressful. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, the catering manager was out of the office most weekdays, making communication delayed. We needed to make a final payment over the phone, but she was out of the office until we left on Wednesday for our venue. We communicated via email that I would call with the final payment. Setting up for the wedding got crazy and I forgot to call, but also never received a call or email from her until Friday at 3:20 (90 minutes before the rehearsal) that if I didn't call to pay today, they would not be showing up for the wedding tomorrow. While I understand that the onus was on me to make the call, I think 5-stars for pro... Read more

  • Had the Common Man catering for our anniversary. The food was good but the Sales person (Kristie Edmunds) was the worst person I've ever worked with. Offsite catering and they were not prepared. They had the staff and the food was good but didn't have the right number of tablecloths, very last minute arrival for delivery. Never told us they were stopping the service, just took it away. When I asked "Where is the rest of the food" I was told "We threw it away". That was a complete lie, I had not finished eating and very upset. Luckly all our guest had finished so at least I didn't have to hear from friends and family they went away hungry. At least 40% of the food (we had paid for) was taken back and I'm guessing taken home by the staff for them to enjoy on my dime. After all this I contacted management. Kristie Edmunds keep giving me the run around and ended up having to go to the GM. They sent me a $100 gift certificate. What an insult, you take a $6K payment, pull all your monkey bus... Read more
