Hats off to Sean Tuohey, and his entire team ta Rowhouse Bakery and Restaurant. We had a table of 10 for brunch on St. Patrick's Day and it was wonderful. We really had an amazing experience, great food, and fun. The place is beautiful. Definitely good for a large or small group. Add it to your list. Beth

My Husband and I were looking forward to having brunch at the Rowhouse and we were impressed by the decor and ambiance of the restaurant, however we were disappointed by the service that we received. We were one of the first reservations for bunch and we were never offered a refill on our drinks. I had a coffee and it wasn’t until we asked for our bill that the server offered a re-fill. My husband throughly enjoyed his French toast and my breakfast sandwich was alright, but the sub-par service left a bad taste in our mouth.

The portions were very small. They were out of Bud Light, red sauce for their pizzas, And only enough chicken wings left to make one small order. The waiter was very nice and the atmosphere was beautiful

Unfortunately, the squash soup was just lukewarm when served, and the bread on the charcuterie tray was stale and hard as opposed to crispy. The salads were nice.

Our party of 5 had dinner at Rowhouse before a BPO concert. We were seated immediately after our arrival. The interior of the building is quite spectacular and makes an excellent first impression. Our server was friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. The food was generally very good, although my wife did not like the French Onion soup. Two people ordered pizzas and couldn’t finish them ... they are large enough for two people to share. My wife had a steak, which was cooked perfectly. I ordered scallops and lobster risotto, which also were delicious.
My only complaint would be the sound level. There was music playing on the sound system and the volume was too loud for normal dinner conversation. Consequently, all of the diners were speaking very loudly to be heard over the music!
Otherwise, we had a great meal in a lovely setting and would recommend Rowhouse to our friends.

Went there for a valentines day dinner.
Restaurant ambiance is very nice. Waitress introduced herself and we ordered a bottle of wine which cam quickly. Unfortunately it was a long time before our waitress came by to take our order and even longer before the food was delivered. Salmon on one dish was overcooked and actually burned on one side (dry) and the scallops with lobster risotto was also dry & cold. Both dishes seemed like they were under the warming lamp way too long. I tried to order some melted butter , by the time it arrived we were almost done and it arrived cold, not melted.

We have been to Rowhouse many times and have been really pleased except tonite.. Valentines evening not so great. First.. the Host... The Host was delightful. After a pleasant greeting took us right to our table. Our waiter also was Wonderful!!! The best. Our meal unfortunately not so great. I had the risotto with lobster. It reads like an extra special dish. I mean risotto is special and toss in lobster and scallops and wow! Right? But no. The risotto lacked any sort of flavor and regrettably was a bit cold. The lobster just did not taste right. The scallops were a bit over-cooked. My spouse had a salad that unfortunately looked like it was put together very quickly where all the special things were haphazardly piled in the middle. He also ordered a pizza which was ok.. not the usual pizza oven perfection. For dessert we shared the macarons which were homemade perfection which is where my one Star came from. They were soft but with the perfect bit of crunch and inside a pop of raspberry. Hurrah! After a few glasses of bubbly I ordered a night cap of coffee and sadly I was told there was none brewed and no offer to brew it.
On the way home I wished I had just ordered an appetizer and soup because that all looked good passing by our table but it was a special night. I think it was an off night.

Wife and I went for Valentines dinner.
Ambiance was 5 star, the work done inside was fantastic. Server was very pleasant, but doesn't know the wine to well The menu selection was minimal and not to my liking (Alabama Catfish...no thanks) but ok I can find something, so we both ordered steak and ensured we were clear hers had to be well done (waitress never asked how mine should be cooked) Hers came med RARE and the steak was set atop "brocollitini" (fancy way of saying broccoli) with the blood running all over it. We are people who do NOT send food back (thank you hollywood) then they tried to charge us for the bloody mess. After a stern assertion to our waitress that there was no way were paying for it, it was taken off the bill. We ended up eating at our go-to casual restaurant to finish out our "just perfect" Valentines evening.
Other issues regarding the menu I felt there should have been bread or salad available. It just seems someone put a huge effort into a remodel, and forgot about a decent menu. I may try the brunch in the future because the ambiance is that good and I heard good things about the breakfast food.

Made reservations and hostess seemed aggravated when we indicated we didn’t want to sit in the bar area. She claimed there were no tables “set up” upstairs. After she reluctantly brought us upstairs, we we seated off to the far left where is was drafty and dark (the lights were barely on at that end). Oh.. by the way all the table were indeed “set up”. So I don’t know what she meant earlier. At the time there was only one other table occupied in the middle section that was warmer with lights on. Our server allowed us to move. The server was ok. Although, we were missing some silverware and had a hard time getting the water pitcher refilled and never received the requested bread for the table until the dinner was over. Weird, because we had a wonderful experience when we came one time for brunch. The atmosphere was nicer with white linen table clothes and great service. What’s happening? I would recommend maybe for brunch if it was like before, but not dinner. It’s a beautiful restaurant. Just a shame the hostess seems annoyed all the time and it’s always so empty downstairs.

We always enjoy dining at Rowhouse, though we usually go for breakfast or brunch. Jordan was our server and we’ve had him several times before and he’s always kind, attentive, and has great recommendations. We got the roasted chicken, rowhouse burger, shishito peppers, and a margherita pizza. It was ALL fantastic. Great food, impeccable service, and such a great atmosphere.

Really tasty options, even for vegetarians. The mimosas were most welcome. The service was slow but we were not in a hurry and he was super friendly. We stopped at the bakery counter and spent even more money! I tasted things I never had and enjoyed the whole experience.

We loved the atmosphere and menu choices. The appetizers were delicious, as were the drinks. However, when the fried fish entree came to the table it was burned to a crisp. The server did not say anything and we debated whether or not to send it back, but didn't want to disrupt the rest of the dinner party. Clearly, the kitchen staff and server ignored the charred breaded fish. We will not come back for dinner, but may consider the bakery one Saturday morning. Truly disappointing, after having waited so long to try Rowhouse.

My group just had a fabulous brunch at Rowhouse. It's a lovely space with an imaginative menu and friendly quick service. Loved the fresh juices, and they have great choices for picky eaters, foodies, and gourmands! Everything from a fresh yogurt parfait with granola & a healthy juice blend to a "breakfast burger" or biscuits and gravy! I've been there for lunch and for drinks & dinner as well, and it's always terrific. Very few places can be great as a cafe, bar, and restaurant, but they manage it!
