The Row House is a consistent performer when it comes to serving gastronomical delights. I have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, the profesional but professional attitudes of the wait staff as well as the owner Gregg who puts his heart and soul into his offerings. You will love this place!!

Go. These people are great. They genuinely love what they do, take pride in it, and are totally unassuming about it. I've never had a dish I didn't enjoy there, after numerous times dining there. The cocktails and wine pairings are great, too. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. Strong work, Chef Fox

This is indeed a special occasion restaurant. Each course of this tasting menu is thoughtful, delicious and beautiful. Chef Fox is a master and the staff gives attention to every detail. I highly recommend the wine tasting with the meal, It's a fantastic romantic evening but it is also a blast with friends. You MUST go at least once for... More

The meal and the service was outstanding. It was a bit pricey, but worth it for a special night. The menu is set, so you do not have a choice. However, they did give me more of one choice because I could not eat a dessert.

I love dinners that provide lots of small plates, many different tastes, and I love new combinations that provide interesting or surprising taste experiences. As with any large menu, some items will connect more than others. One of my very favorite items was not even on the menu, a small piece of bread with maple infused butter, slices of radish,... More

This is a special occasion kind of place. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there. The food was amazing, unlike what I'd expect to find in Kansas.
