A Night Out
The Town House is a neighborhood Gem. A group of five Emeryville neighbors were going out to listen to a Jazz performance. Stopped in at the Town House first for drinks and shared multiple dishes. All good. The service and co -operation of servers and kitchen staff was outstanding.

The Townhouse is a great surprise in what appear to be the backlot buildings of a more industrial area of town. Behind the doors - its clean, contemporary interior and friendly, speedy, considerate service make the whole experience great.

Returning after 25 years
Really liked the history and decor, spacing of tables, patio view, service was great, menu had something for everyone. Our threesome had: grilled veggie platter, sweet potato fries, ribs, couscous-shrimp salad and all was quite good. All in all a very good experience, just a little pricey.

Good Food and affordable
We went there saturday night made reservations and were seated immediately, service was a little slow but our server was very knowledgable and professional. I had their Salmon special and my wife ordered their vegetarian tortelini. Both were very very good.
We will be back.

Excellent service and good food
We came here for a Father's Day dinner and the people and service was excellent. We had the stuffed mushrooms, which were okay. Wish it had more flavor and I now wish we tried another appetizer. The special was salmon over mashed potatoes and the salmon was very good. I didn't care for the diced tomato topping, but it was alright. My husband ordered the fish and chips and it delicious. The service was excellent and our waiter was very attentive.

Re-discovering the Townhouse
I recently re-discovered the Townhouse when I had lunch there. It was so good that I thought my son would also enjoy it, so I invited him to have dinner with me there on a Friday night. We both enjoyed our meal and thought the food was excellent. After moving around the Bay Area a lot, I had forgotten the Townhouse was there until I passed by several weeks ago. Great re-discovery! I'll definitely be back.

Best ribs I've had
I was very pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. Wanted something close to the Emeryville theatres. Excellent food and service. The ribs were amazingly meaty and the sauce outstanding. Highly recommended

Townhouse is a consistently stellar restaurant. Never a bad meal here!

We took local and out of town family out for a special dinner and were not disappointed. Always great food, thoughtful service and moderate prices. We have been coming here for special and not so special occasions for years and hope to keep doing so.

Can't go wrong at Townhouse
The biggest dilemma is deciding which of their delicious items to order. I have NEVER been disappointed. I do adore their prime rib, and baby back ribs.

Nice to be back
This was a favorite of our years ago, when we worked in the area, but we forgot how special it was until we went back for old times sake. We now are going to make this a regular again. The food was great - the menu selection had many items we wanted to try, service and special attention made our evening. Thank you.

We always enjoy the food and ambiance at Townhouse and visit often when in the area. An Emeryville gem.

Enjoyed the lamb salad - just perfect size to share. Fruit cobbler was outstanding. Sat both outdoors until it was too cool and staff were accommodating to have dessert indoors.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
20 years of lunches and dinners at The Townhouse and I have always found the food and service outstanding. Fresh ingredients, well-prepared dishes, interesting entree choices served efficiently with a smile. Valet parking makes this neighborhood gem trouble-free.

The number of folks dining
The number of folks dining there on a Wednesday night really says it all. The place was packed by 7 PM and it's a pretty big place. Loved the strawberry tart!

We found this by accident when we were in the area. We enjoyed our dining experience so much that we have returned from Pleasanton to dine here. A wonderful find!

Always a favorite...
Everything is perfect, but without being fussy or pretentious.

Off The Path
I was pleased, invited by a friend for dinner. We returned a few weeks later a nice place to catch up. Food was well prepared. Staff was friendly guy who was Maitre D even took my hat. I'm old school most guys now don't have good etiquette. Hats are not to be worn inside, and one other fact, is not at the dinner table. My grandmother would have smacked me had I not removed my hat.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Down home American food done well!
First time dining there - really nice menu, lots of items we both liked to try. We'll be back many times.

Being from Phoenix and booking
Being from Phoenix and booking a restaurant long distance you are never sure what you are going to find. This was wonderful. The food, service and personal touch were super. I only wish they were located in Phoenix.

The townhouse bar and grill was recommended to us, hosting a dinner for out of town relatives. It is located in a very mixed neighborhood, with some industrial mixed with houses. We never would have found it by chance.
In the restaurant, the atmosphere was intriguing, rustic, and very spacious. We found the menu full of intriguing and inspiring possibilities and we were not disappointed. Portions were generous, making it easy for my husband and I to split one entree. The food was excellent and deliciously spiced. The only disappointment was a bottle of "house red" wine - pretty sour. We sat indoors, but later noticed the very charming outdoor patio with fountain. That's what we would choose another time.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great neighborhood find. Has history, was once a cowboy bar in Emeryville!

Excellent food in Emeryville
Townhouse is a very comfortable place for lunch or dinner. Service is very good, there's nice patio for outdoor dining and the food is excellent. Menu offers a variety of dishes and includes some great salads as well as a variety of entrees. On this trip, we had the evening special halibut and it was truly outstanding. Overall, good place that doesn't disappoint.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was one of the best restaurant meals (dinners) the 4 of us have had, each of us cleaning our plates. Our waiter followed our table mood perfectly. He brought us great wine. The cocktails were very well made - from Manhattans to Mojitos! Some times The Townhouse can be a little loud but we were against the back wall so maybe this helped as it was not true this time. We even got spaces in the parking lot!!

Great for business lunches
The ambiance supports having a business lunch. Free valet parking, great and prompt service, healthy selections. Highly recommended!

Great Food; Too Dark and Nosiy!
The four of us had very good food. Very nice service, varied menu, tasty food. However, our table was not under a light and therefore we were sitting in a very dark spot. My flashlight app helped us read the menus. Also, the men sitting next to us spoke louder and louder and LOUDER making it difficult to hear the people at our table. Any suggestions???

Great food! Easy location.

Love the restaurant but...
It is so noisy. The food and service are wonderful. I've never had a bad meal. However, if you want to have a conversation, don't go on a weekend when the restaurant is crowded because you can't carry on a conversation.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great romantic place to dine recomend making a reservation on open table prior to dinning also try the calamari... cool laid back staff hidden gem
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I made my reservations on open table but nothing was available early enough for a group as large as ours. I called and spoke with the GM, he made some special arrangements and got us in sooner, truly above expectations. The service was excellent before and during, thanks to all the staff!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very cute, yet elegant location, free valet parking and the food is DELICIOUS. I took a group there for a work lunch, and they were very hospitable. We had 1 extra from our reservation and were 15 minutes late, but after we notified them of our tardiness they were still very accommodating. I definitely realize a busy restaurant doesn't need to be, so it very much appreciated. I will definitely be back and highly recommend if you're looking for gourmet food in Emeryville.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice lunch, but prefer their dinner
Nice, varied menu. Has been a while since I was last here, and the menu does seem to
have veered a bit toward pretension. What do I mean? A veggie "mixed grill" for $18.95 which
just has some grilled veggies - a bit pricey. Also lunch menu is a bit salad-heavy.
I enjoy meat and chops as well as "meaty" types of fish, so I think dinner is a better option, at least
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great date spot
We came her for the first time and loved it. I think its my new favorite date spot in the east bay. So cosy!

Always loved Townhouse
Kevin, our waiter has always been fantastic, service with a genuine smile. This place gets busy on weekends so reservations are highly recommended.

Iconic place...with history
Townhouse is an east bay landmark...we were told it was a bar during the speak easy days...and frequented by Navy guys looking for female companionship...the history is there and the food, service and ambiance is VERY good. Host, Maz, is perfect and new bartender can make a good drink!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM

Today was my second visit in a month after not dining here for nearly a year. It was a wonderful as always. We were warmly received by the staff, the service was great and the food was outstanding!

Yummy Food in a Comfortable Spot
We have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the food, the service and the setting. We took a teenage visitor with us and she really enjoyed the meatloaf. My husband, as usual, ordered the ribs...and he cleaned the bones! I sneaked one of his sweet potato fries...YUM! I had the crab-cakes which were delicious!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
came to celebrate a birthday and the food was excellent. Started with the fried calamari followed by halibut special, ribs, ravioli and risotto - everything was delish and portions were generous. Will definitely be back to try other menu items!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our party of 4 shared everything. 2 appetizers - garlic fries and calamari were excellent. Chicken salad was very good. The main courses - bbq ribs were a bit dry but the sweet potato fries were good. The porcini ravioli with mushroom sauce was very tasty and rich. Desserts - bananas foster bread pudding and the apple cranberry crisp (both with ice cream) were excellent. Service was outstanding and helpful.
