Very high end restaurant, top notch chefs on staff. Limited menu that changes from night to night but some of the best food I have ever eaten. Wine is paired to the food perfectly.

We stopped by to try out their prix fixe menu. It was a very high end experience for Topeka. When I do visit I am usually hard pressed to find good food, that Isn't a national chain. The Rowhouse provides a great dining experience. My favorite dishes were the seared Mahi Mahi and sautéed spinach with bleu cheese. Is there... More

This is the place to go for a special occasion The food is divine. It is pricey by Topeka standards, but the atmosphere is cozy and the service is attentive without hovering. Reservations are a must - call especially early around a holiday.

I hate going to fancy places having the waiter act like an arrogant food snob and being famished after dinner. Row House makes sure that neither of these two things happen. The staff is awesome. They laugh and tease, honest with their opinions. They want you to have a good time. The food is exquisite. Great tasting. Fresh. Unique. And... More

This is a great place to have dinner! The food is always wonderful and the service is equally impressive. We have eaten here 8 or 10 times and have always been delighted.

After literally years of trying to visit RowHouse for dinner, my husband and I FINALLY made it last Saturday. Everything about the experience was delightful! Our server was polite and professional, and explained each course as it was served. The wine pairings were well thought-out, and went very well with the food. The house itself is charming. We really enjoyed... More

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!!
