I travel to Topeka once or twice a year to join a group of sewists at The Sewing Workshop. A dinner at the Rowhouse Restaurant is a must for a number of us in the group. I make the reservation online several weeks ahead. Food is always excellent--fresh, in-season, and imaginative. The service is very good.

By far the best food and service in the Topeka area and most of Kansas City too. Well worth the price. Service is outstanding! The food is too! What a cool setting as well. Just try it!

The unique approach to having a set menu for all diners was new for us but we went with hopes of a good meal in a fun setting! We found both in Rowhouse as the staff were very friendly, the presentation of the meal amazing and the food truly delicious! The flavor of each part of the meal were beyond... More

We always get the tasting menu, which changes weekly, so we check the website to make sure that the three entrees fit our taste. This is where we get experiences which would require a lot of travel to obtain.

Narrow stairs and the "bar" is in the basement - not for sitting but where they have to make the drinks that can take a while. The food: EXCELLENT - great selection of very fresh offerings that seems to... More

Have read rave reviews. Has been on our must visit list for a long time. Finally made reservations. Nice atmosphere. Great wait staff. The food was simply not as "wonderful" as we had been lead to believe. Most of it was not even eaten. Portions were beyond small...but since no one was eating much guess that was ok. ? Obviously...
