Townhouse Bar and Grill
something for everyone @ TownhouseGreat menu, wonderful specials, 'hefty' Mojitos. 3 appetizers for 4 of us was perfect. Menus and drink order were first, entrees arrived shortly after appetizers were lip-smackingly-consumed. Waitress was very attentive (the reason for an early seating catches everyone while they'r still fresh and before the ever-efficient kitchen and wait-staff get a tad overwhelmed, which happens to MOST kitchens when the 7:30, 8:00, 8:30pm diners show up en masse.
Overall, Townhouse is a great place for any occasion, special or otherwise, including Happy Hour (must-try: Avocado Bruschetta). There's something for everyone!
Townhouse is a Bay Area gem.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food! Great Service!We have been to the Townhouse before and love the food here. My husband says that this restaurant makes the best ribs in the world..and they are served with yummy sweet potato fries and cole slaw. (The bones on his plate, at the end of dinner, were totally clean!) I had the shrimp served on a Mexican style salad, topped with guacamole..and it was fantastic. I would recommend this place because the food is delicious, the service is very good and we feel very comfortable dining here.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy Town House on a Monday nightOur party of 4 became a party of 5 at the last minute. The staff could accomodate us immediately with a little shifting of tables. No delay, and our reservation time was met. We were nicely greated and a manager checked on us during our meal. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and the kitchen was quick with appetizers and entrees. The waiter was fast and correct with the complex drink order. Water and bread arrived quickly as well. All this during a very busy (full as best I could tell) Monday night. The presentation and taste and size of portions of the entrees were appreciated by all. A very good experience as I am used to at the Town House. It is a bit noisy; you need to talk loudly to be heard at the table.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBarkkissmoSurprise find looking on Yelp for restaurants in Emeryille. Reviews made it a must. We were taken aback when we first saw the building because it looks old and abandoned. We had just had a very bad experience with reservations with bed and breakfast plans that we had been looking forward to and it fell completely through. Beautiful day so we chose to eat outside in the sun. Host and Wait staff are very attentive often to see if you need anything or if everything is going OK. We ordered the grilled buffalo prawns, GrilledThai steak salad, Avocado bruschetta, warm brussels sprouts an grilled tenderloin all spectacularly delicious. We will return with friends.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe quality food and the diversityThe quality food and the diversity of the menu is outstanding.

I have eaten at the Townhouse several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the menu is now aAlthough the menu is now a bit pricey for what you get, our seafood salad was very well prepared and presented. Getting drinks promptly is a problem--you order through your server, but some time later it is brought to your table by someone whose job it is to deliver the drinks. And I mean "some time later" as in 15-20 minutes. Unacceptable time lag for such a small place. Once my brut rose arrived, it was not the cremant at all, but rather a regular rose, and the whole process had to begin all over again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently WonderfulTownhouse is always great, but this particular evening was spectacularly good.
