    Wasn't sure what to order, the wait staff was excellent answering questions about food and wine. The food was prepared well. We were the only 5 people there for dinner so we were well taken care of. The only downside was it was 99 degrees outside and we were seated inside near lots of windows. It was an extremely hot room and we were all sweating. We should have asked to be moved or given a fan. I can't say I would go back anytime soon but it was a fun girls night out trying something different.

    We have celebrated 3 birthdays there over the past year. The ambiance is perfect for a celebration. The service is excellent and the food is yummy. We would highly recommend the shrimp cocktail, Caprese salad, salmon with angel hair pasta, shrimp & grits and chocolate mousse. They even have a lift outside that can be used for handicap accessibility. We thoroughly enjoy ourselves when we dine there.

    The atmosphere is truly lovely. You can tour upstairs if you wish. Service was exceptional. I had the salmon with lemon cream sauce. It was delicious. Please don’t ever take it off the menu. There were six in our party. Everyone enjoyed their food and would go back again.

    The building is lovely, but we were not near any windows and so it feels a bit like you're sitting in a cave. The waitress was nice, but never came back to fill our drinks or ask if we needed anything else until she asked about dessert. We both ordered grilled cheese with tomato sandwiches and they were not hot, the cheese was not melted. It was like they put two pieces of toast on cheese, added tomatoe and cut it in half. French fries were good, although not hot. It took quite a while to get our food and, frankly I didn't think they were all that busy. I will go back to give it another chance, but was disappointed after all I had heard.

    I was so excited for the experience, but the service was very erratic, our app didn’t get put thru until we asked about it, again … about half the entrees were unflavorful so we didn’t each much. My shrimp cocktail tasted off, but I ate it. Was not what I had hoped for, disappointed, sorry. I would give it another shot sometime, because it is beautiful. One staffer was so kind to take family photos outside after lunch.

    I ate at the Fowler House Kitchen on Wednesday May 4th with people where I worked and had the Fish and Chips entree with a cup of Red Pepper soup. It was delicious. I raved about the meal to my wife. I decided right then that I had to take her there. Fortunately, Saturday May 7th was our anniversary. We invited my mother to join us as a Mother's day/anniversary luncheon. My mother and I had the Fish and Chips entree with a cup of Broccoli and Cheese soup (best I have had in a long time) while my wife had the Eliza's Chicken Salad sandwich. My wife and I had a anniversary drink, she had the Golden Cadillac and I had the Mule of Eden, which were both excellent. We will definitely be making a return trip, especially if they have the Broccoli and Cheese soup on the menu.

    Food was decent but menu was quite limited. The place was empty on a Friday night before Purdue graduation. Service was good. Overall a nice experience (but perhaps it didn’t quite meet our expectations).

    Wow. After reading some reviews we were not entire sure what to expect. Fowler house kitchen only recently opened for dinner and clearly this is still a well-kept secret. Food was as good as anything we've had in our years in the area including at the most well-known Lafayette fine dining establishments. We enjoyed langoustine cakes, hangar steak, and incredible duroc-bershire blend pork chop, and a killer lavender mousse angel food cake desert. Service was great, wine list well-curated, and the venue is pretty amazing too. We felt and ate like aristocrats. Please keep up the great work!!

    We had reservation for 2. Apparently there were 2 large parties in at the time we arrive. We received break and our drinks fairly quickly. We did not receive our appetizer for over an hour after ordering. We waited 2 hours for our food. I ordered the Filet but soon after ordering I was informed they ran out of the sides. I had to get the sides for the Hanger steak. When we did receive our food it appeared and tasted rushed. It was not a good experience for our first time at this establishment.

    This is the third time my family and I have attended either Easter or Mother's day events. Fowler House has gotten better every time. Food was good and hot. Service might have been a little slow, but gave us more time to spend together and enjoy the surroundings. Servers were great. Greeter at the door was friendly and professional. Really enjoyed the 2022 Easter dinner. Chicken and Waffles, eggs Benedict, and biscuits and gravy were all great.

    Our Easter brunch was fantastic. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. My daughter's meal had a very spicy sauce on it that was too much for her and our server went above and beyond by having the kitchen remake her entree without the sauce. All 6 of us throughly enjoyed our meals. We will definitely be back in the future!

    We came here for a business dinner and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Drinks were great - nice simple selection of wines. Appetizers were ok but the entrees were wonderful. Lots of local produce and meat, large portions and good flavor. We plan to try this restaurant again.

    A true disaster. Not a good idea to try to open on Valentine’s Day. We had an 8:30 reservation and were served our meal at 10:30. We waited over an hour for our table. Staff was completely overwhelmed- no one came out to greet the more than 12 people who all waited an hour cramped in the lobby. There was nowhere to sit (though the white upstairs was open and had lovely seats). If someone has simply greeted us, apologized for the wait, and perhaps served us something and had us wait upstairs, it would have been ok. Several people walked out angry. Most of the entrees were no longer available by the time we were finally served. Hopefully they’ll learn from such a terrible opening.

    This is our second time to dine at the Fowler House on a special occasion. Food was so good. Taste. Appearance. Portion. Our only issue would have been our server. He seemed to disappear. Maybe it was supposed to be that way. Maybe he was serving outside his established section. We don’t know. He just would be gone and we sat for an extended time waiting for plates to be picked up. Waiting for box. Waiting for check. But overall they created a sweet environment.
