I would recommend this Fine establishment to everyone. The Food is FRESH and Amazing. The menu changes every week. Now if you are one a tight budget I would not recommend Row House. But I would recommend that everyone try this Fine Establishment.

We went there for a company banquet a year or two back. OK, but nothing I would really consider extraordinary.

I have very little to add from my original review, the meal my wife and I had at the Row House was flawless. I will add that my wife has gluten problems, and if the chef knows that this is an issue they are able to work around gluten issues and still provide an epic meal.

My husband and I went to Row House for Valentine's Day and it was exceptional. The menu had several courses and each course was delicious. We both tried different things so we could enjoy even more options by sharing together. I will go again.

Wonderful dining experience in a classic old structure near the State Capitol building. The food is superb. The presentation is impressive. The staff is appropriately attentive. An overall delight and a treat. The New Year's Eve menu is consistently among the best we have sampled in many larger cities. Well worth reservations in advance and an evening in and of... More

We went there for our 5th wedding anniversary and it was an incredible experience. They made us feel very special. We ate dinner in the dining area of the basement and then had dessert on the patio. Each course was paired with wine and they made each course that much better. We will definitely be back.

Hands down best dining experience in Topeka. Closest thing in terms of quality in the area is Lawrence's 715. Seasonal tasting menu is extraordinary. A wonderful 90 minute culinary journey for foodies or those simply wanting to decompress and try new things.

Thank Scott R
