A lot of people say they like this place but I don't think it is above average. The portions are micro sized. On the way home had to stop at fast food to get enough to fill me up. Won't go back!

RowHouse Restaurant is a one-of-kind local eatery. Owner / Chef Greg Fox always puts together a creative and flavourful menu that changes weekly. Located in one of the historic Ross Rowhouses, it is an intimate restaurant. Reservations are very strongly recommended... and when you reserve a table it is your for the evening. There is always a vegetarian entree on... More

Our favorite restaurant in Topeka. Menus are always creative and live up to expectations. You can check their fixed menu online, but I like to be surprised. Service is very good and they do not rush you, which makes for the perfect place to enjoy the outstanding food they offer.

We usually go to the Row House once or maybe twice a year. It is nice to try the different items that they serve but this is a place were you are getting a small bite (1 or 2) of each course and that is it. They have a good wine list and good food, but we know when we... More

Total experience is outstanding - the food, the environment, the service, the crowd. Can't beat it in Topeka - or any city. It is so consistantly great. How many places does the chef stop by your table and visit - effortlessly.

Rowhouse Restaurant is Topeka's best restaurant with no close peers. Chef/Owner Greg Fox prepares a weekly prix fixe multi mini course tasting menu that is always interesting, seasonally influenced, and generally provides some very good to excellent bites. My favorite items tend to be the amuse bouche, the salads and the vegetarian items. The seafood entrée is usually very good... More

The Rowhouse is the best restaurant in Topeka. Greg Fox and his staff produce a fabulous dining experience modeled on a tasting menu. You have an amuse bouche, soup, salad and vegetarian entree and two other entrees either seafood and beef or chicken and beef. Then top it off with 3 desserts or just more of one. This is THE...

We had an excellent evening. Great seating, great friends, great food, suggested wine pairings (mostly we didn't use). Unique and freshly made food, mixture of new and experienced staff, visited with owner Chef Greg and another Chef. Could not have asked for a thing to be better. Can't believe we have this kind of restaurant in our town. Very fortunate,... More

RowHouse has a creative, changing menu that almost demands the 'tasting menu' (some of everything). When you reserve a table, it is yours for the night. The food is casually paced and always explained so you know what your are about to taste. I don't think there is a cocktail that Jamie can't do perfectly! Our group of four have... More
