I've been to Townhouse a few times now and food is good, but nothing to go out of your way for. It's a handy, reliable place if you work in the nearby area.

A little loud but other than that it was nice. Even though they were out of lobster for the Mac&Cheese the subitute shrimp was cooked perfectly! It was awesome. Must try the Lobster next time!

Enjoyed a decent lunch with a colleague. Food was decent and approachable, service was friendly and effective. Noise levels varied through the lunch our, but conversation was still easy.
Reasonable change of pace for a lunch outing with colleagues, though probably not where I would take a client.

fabulous hidden gem on Wacker!
The staff was fabulous! We came for a birthday and they gave us three excellent desserts on the house. The food itself was so very good. I had the duck. It was the best duck dish I have EVER had. I'm trying to think of a reason (excuse) to go back there! It's a somewhat fancy and moderately priced menu, so I'd definitely need a good reason to spend at that price point, but man if it's not worth it!!

Good for most business lunches, but quite noisy. Nice menu - more extensive than Chicago location.

Went here for a business lunch
Went here for a business lunch and ate outside. It was the perfect upper end laid back atmosphere. Eating outside allowed us to talk freely. Located between two buildings you did not have to deal with too much noise off of Wacker. The food was delicious too and they are very accommodating to "selective" eaters like us. I will definitely come here again!!

Good Loop Spot
Solid menu, packed at lunch and happy hour. Nice change from the run in, run out loop lunch spots. Good for clients who are in the loop.

too loud for lunch if you have more than 2 people at the table. The food was good though!

Business lunch plus
Except for rather high noise level this is an excellent place for a work day lunch. Service is attentive and sensitive to diners'need for speed and food is special enough to merit the time and cost.

The food was progressive list most Chicago restaurants, large portions and very delicious. Dessert was not good at all. We tried all 3 options. Great outdoor seating. Inside very loud. One wall is all glass so great atmosphere.

Great location for business lunch
There are a limited number of nicer places to do lunch if your office is located close to union station. They have a great variety of offerings on the menu and moderate pricing that make it a great place for a business lunch or cocktails after work.

Okay Food, Fantastic Service
This is a nice restaurant for dinner after work with friends. I met a friend there for her birthday and we had a nice time. The service was exemplary from the hostess to the waiter. The drinks were made very well and the ambience was really nice. The only negative thing I can say is that the food was just so-so and honestly when I read the reviews before they all said the same. I was looking forward to those Chicago Fries but they were just okay, the lobster mac and cheese, just okay. I would not recommend this place if you are looking for outstanding food. Chicago has much better to offer in that regard but it you want a nice time with good drinks, decent food and great service after work in the Loop this place will meet your needs.

Great Lunch Spot
Wonderful lunch spot. Turkey burger was one of the best I've had. Quinoa mac and cheese was a great change of pace. Very loud- sometimes hard to carry on conversation, but would definintely go again!

Was visiting Chicago and being
Was visiting Chicago and being withouta car wanted to find something relatively close to hotel. Online menu seemed very interesting and decide to go there even though the posted reviews seemed somewhat mixed. Our opinion was the food was fantastic. I ordered the seared scallops and my daughter had the lobster mac and cheese. Both we in our opinion were superb. The scallops were so tender and the flavor unique. Definitely an excellent restaurant for both visitors and locals. So happy to have had the pleasure to dine there and made sure to mention that to our server as we left.

Kind of noisy
The food and service at Townhouse are great - we had their grilled chicken sandwich and burgers. Sweet potato fries are outstanding. But the noise level is very high. If you are having lunch with friends or colleagues that speak softly, you'll never hear them speak until about 1:20 or so in the afternoon. If you are going with people that tend to be a little louder and rowdy, you'll love it at Townhouse.

We went with a group from works. The appetizers and drinks were flowing and so was the conversations.

Hot Spot in the City
Perfect lunch/dinner scene. 2nd visit and I enjoyed it. Things that made my tastebuds dance: sweet potato fries, crab cake, tomato confit, and chicago fries. Calamari is tasty but can be hit or miss. First visit: we had a large group and several orders. Each one was cooked a little differently and ranged in portion size. My lunch experience was the same. First order was cold and the breading was separate from the calamari. Management readily replaced our order and even explained that the cook was preparing a 3rd order because she wasn't happy with the 2nd. Third times a charm! Smaller portion but perfect finish. BBQ salmon salad was refreshing and the jambalaya had a nice kick. Love the quinoa in place of rice. Treat yourself!

Great place for a Happy Hour
I truly enjoy Townhouse. This is our second time going and our server Marvin remembered us - although it has been a few months since our first visit.
We typically do the happy hour wine flights on Tuesdays, and order of the small plates menu, which contains a variety of different "tapas" style appetizers.
I see Townhouse becoming a go to place in the future for happy hour for sure.

Great Pre-Opera, after work Choice
Food was very good. Service excellent. We were going to the opera and the wait staff paid close attention to the timing. A vibrant, bar atmosphere, it was loud (happy hour) but we could converse without shouting. Hamburger and turkey burger really delicious. Unusual pre- opera dining experience. I'd go back.
