I've not been but I've heard it is really, really fantastic! My sister and her date found the food fresh, tasty, and the atmosphere relaxing.

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.

An older row-house block with one of the homes turned into a restaurant. Each of the 3-4 floors has 6-10 tables. 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...

For a special evening: romantic or celebration you can't go wrong. The food is fantastic and for all who are afraid the menu won't fill them up....don't bet on it. I have been very satisfied every time I have gone and I like to eat a hearty meal. The ambience is fantastic. I recommend this place to anyone who wants... More

We eat at Rowhouse often and appreciate the friendliness of the staff, consistency of food quality and special attention to dietary needs. Rowhouse specializes in developing tasting menus that draw from seasonal locally (and sometimes from it own garden) grown food that is prepared in unique and exciting ways. We lived on the east coast for 15 years and Rowhouse... More
