Not too impressed

Portions are very small and service is questionable. Not overly impressed with the quality for the price.

My husband and I just recently visited Rowhouse for the first time, and we were very pleased with it. It's too pricey for us to go there on a regular basis, but it's worth it for the occasional treat. We did have to sit quite close to a large party so at times it was loud and difficult for us...

Atmosphere is interesting, but too quiet for a casual dinner with a colleague. Linen table clothes and napkins. Dinner was $60 a plate with 1 drink and tip, not bad for the food but double what I expected based on other reviews and the area. Worth a trip if you're looking for a romantic dinner.

The setting is very cool. A row house turned into a restaurant in two floors. The tables are too close and at times do not allow a private conversation without being overheard. Food is good but not as good as the waiters and the chef think! Wine service was a disaster especially when I asked for a decanter. I got... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Rowhouse several times over the past few years. Each time we have gone, the service and food have been fantastic. While the servings are much smaller than what you get at chain restaurants, we still leave feeling full (but not stuffed) after enjoying several courses. We love how fresh and flavorful the... More

Greg Fox always provides new and interesting dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients. This is the place to go if you want a change from typical restaurant menus.

It is my favorite restaurant on the planet. Greg Fox is a culinary artist! The food is to die for. We have visited this establishment many times and have NEVER been dissapointed. Our latest visit in February to celebrate Valentine's Day was incredible. If you ever find yourself in Topeka wondering what in the world people do for enjoyment here,... More
