It is such a cool space! I would say that people should visit this uniquely renovated mansion! IT is huge and each nook and cranny is its own...place. From the pizza bar, to the cafe, to the upstairs well-lit dining room! Lovely! The food was tasty and he service was efficient and friendly!
Excellent Thursday night dinner for two.
Food was very good. Jordan, our waiter, was very nice and informative. We sat in the front room on the second floor...lightening could be dimmed a little more in there. Was a little too bright compared to the rest of the dining areas.
The environment is lovely and the wait staff was good. However, their food is not good. I went a year ago and the food was moderate to ok. I decided to try again figuring that it was going to take them a while to get on their feet after opening. The food has not improved and I will not be returning. There is a lot of competition in Buffalo due to the opening of many restaurants. I am hoping they can improve the quality of their meals so that they can stay open. It is a unique space and I wish them luck!
Clearly not enough employees there. The server was great. But she was the only one. There was no one to greet us when we walked in. I had to search the bar to find someone. The filet mignon that was part of the Surf and Turf was the size of a half dollar. And it was not cooked well. At least the server was very nice.
I had the burger, fries, (and took home a chocolate croissant) and it was all delicious!
New Years Brunch. Excellent food & service. Unique space. Plan on returning for brunch or dinner.
After enjoying dinner here once, I was very disappointed when I tried their New Years Day brunch. The whole experience seemed like organized chaos. The ‘make your own omelette station’ consisted of 2 omelette choices.. not what I consider to be make your own. Several things were empty when we went to the buffet and several things that should have been kept warm weren’t (pizza was just on a plate). When we walked in we waited 10 minutes for a staff to address us and you could not tell who was working there and who wasn’t besides one attentive server we had while sitting. All other staff were dressed in normal clothes and running around frantically. The buffet was $35 and it was not worth it in my opinion. The food was bland and boring. This is a great spot but their execution is very poor in my opinion. I would not return based on this experience.
Food was like warm. Atmosphere is wonderful. If the food and service would catch up to the atmosphere the rowhouse would be special
Having come from out of town, we made a 1pm reservation online. When we arrived, there was no one present to seat us nor an indication of where to let someone know we were there (we asked a cook). Our server didn’t come over for 20 minutes; and then, it took another 15 to get our tea. (Our food order was not yet taken at this point, and we were starving!) We put in our food orders, and then we realized that if tea took 15 minutes, it would be a while before we saw food; our server kindly asked if we’d like soup while we waited for the entrees, but that bowl didn’t show up until the food came — 45 minutes later. Nice ambiance, but don’t go unless you have a lot of time to spend there.
An amazing, unique, beautiful spot! Delicious food, good service.
This is my fourth time trying Rowhouse. Each time I am disappointed that they just cannot get it together. The service was horrendous and the food did not match the menu descriptions (second time this has occurred). The restaurant was not even busy. I wanted to keep giving them chances because I would like to see them be successful, but I am done now.
I used to love this place. The building is so unique with open spaces as well as bright cozy rooms. It has gone through many iterations since I first visited. The food preparation is not as outstanding as it was once. However, the server was pleasant and attentive without being obtrusive, and the building is still beautiful.
French toast was amazing! Gorgeous setting. Downstairs bar small but we were first ones there so not a problem for us.
Festive holiday ambience with great brunch offerings and nice staff. Santa even made an appearance! The "working girl breakfast" sandwich was very good as was the beef hash.
Plates served did not match menu description. Potato and salad was in menu description. Plate arrived with no potato. When we asked the server she mentioned something about the salad. Did not pursue it, just wanted to leave. The waitress seemed new, possibly her first waitress job, she seemed “frazzled”. She obviously was trying but not supported by the kitchen. Will not be back.
We love Rowhouse! Everything on the menu is delicious, trust me — I’ve tried it all. Can’t be beat. Amazing ambiance, friendly and attentive servers. You can tell they take pride in their food preparation, it’s always soooo good
Nobody was at hostess station when I arrived...waited 5 minutes. Husband was parking car and when he came in there was nobody there again so he wandered around restaurant until he found me. We were seated upstairs by window cramped in between another table of two and a table of four ..so close it seemed we were eating with them. Could hear every word they were saying. Waitress was frazzled. We were on time constraint to see a show (we only had an 90 min) and told her that as soon as she took drink order. Black and blue salad had VERY limited ingredients (about 5 nuts, could barely see any blue cheese crumbles, maybe 3 pears). We asked for blue cheese for wings (they didn’t have any). She offered a yogurt dip. But then never brought it. Half way through we saw yogurt dip underneath wings smeared on plate (barely enough for 1-2 wings)...but she didn’t even tell us it was there. My only drink was water and it was never refilled. I literally had to bring my card to her before she ran away from another table so we could leave. My harvest pizza was good and the acorn soup was ok (kind of bland). Nothing special and wouldn’t recommend
Met my girlfriends for pre Christmas shopping brunch. The staff was wonderful. The food delightful. Charming restaurant.
Birthday brunch. Had never visited before as RowHouse ( had been there years ago when Lord Chumley’s). Ambiance was great and decorated for holidays made it special. Food was excellent. Service was spot on. Definitely will return!
Despite labor problems, all seems to be going very well. This restaurant adds a lot to Buffalo. I will come back again and again.
Amazing AMAZING ambiance. This place is beautiful.
The orange juice may be healthy... but it isnt the tastiest orange juice.
Everything in the bakery was delicious.
The place is really, really cool inside. A band was playing when I got there for Sunday brunch, which was nice! Service unfortunately was disappointing. It was not busy at all in there. I stood and waited for a hostess around 5 minutes. Multiple people that worked there walked by without saying anything. None of the staff seemed like they wanted to be there - the hostess, the bartender & our waitress all seemed less than enthused. It took almost 15 minutes to get a cocktail after we ordered from our waitress. All of the food was just ok and lukewarm. Overall it was "meh" which is unfortunate because the place is really gorgeous.
I enjoy the brunch. The French toast is excellent. The service is wonderful.
Service was so slow! People at other tables got up and left.
Had a really great time with family and friends at this restaurant. The inside is incredible. Our whole party was saying such good things before and after our dinner. Would love to come back.
The ambiance at this restaurant was amazing. The bar set up is gorgeous with the huge windows and view of Delaware. We were seated upstairs in an adorable nook next to a couch and a lovely bookshelf. There was a great view out the window and of the full restaurant. We were there on small business Saturday, which was great to see local vendors selling their products and added to our experience. The food however was a huge disappointment. The menu looked great but when we arrived the restaurant was out of multiple things which was a little frustrating. We also had a reservation and had to wait for about 25 minutes and it seemed like there was some disorganization. We ordered a sticky bun for the table and it came room temperature rather than warmed up. A few of us ordered flat bread pizzas and the crusts were burnt and they were all quite dry. The harvest pizza had great ingredients but there was not enough pesto on it and arugula was just dumped on the top. The prices were reasonable but unfortunately I would only recommend this restaurant to a friend for a cute spot to get a coffee downstairs and enjoy the space.
We started our evening with a drink at the bar in the lounge. The drinks were awesome and the lounge was really cool- groupings of chairs and couches by fireplaces, a gorgeous bar. We headed upstairs for dinner. The food was excellent- we ordered most of the menu and everything, including the desserts, was outstanding. Favorites include the risotto, kale Caesar, wings, and the flan!!! The restaurant is gorgeous - original wood, fireplaces, windows, pocket doors.. just beautiful. The service was also excellent! Can't wait to try the brunch menu.
Food was pretty good, service was terrible...luckily the ambience and company made the slow service easier to deal with.
The place is charming with ancozy ambiance . the staff could not be nicer. The Bar is fun with an eclectic design that is great. excellent bartendress. We had reservations but sat at the bar for a bit and they did not rush us.
3/ 4 had the salmon and were very pleased. I had a burger wich I wasnit crazy about. It seemed a bit greasy. It did state a beef pork mix. The presentation of the burger was on a small elevated cutting board with my side salad, and while very pretty, there is not an inch of space to cut or do anything with the meal without it falling off the board. Awkward.
There was live music and possibly a happy hour starting up. Definitly would consider the place again for drinks, happy hour or dinner.
Excellent pork chop and flon. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Ambiance as always was charming.
Our server Jordan was amazing. Very attentive but not nosy or in the way of a great date night! Can't wait to go back and try another menu item as my sirloin and succotash was AMAZING. My date loved her half chicken.
Had a great meal. Staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Very remember-able evening!
The Rowhouse Bakery is a beautiful venue - Every floor, every room. The entrance to the "outdoor" cafe is incredible!! Worth going just for coffee or a drink to see the decor. But - food was delicious - We truly enjoyed or evening and will be back!
Overall we enjoyed having brunch in this beautiful restaurant. We were given the wrong menus & we received the correct ones after we started ordering. My guests enjoyed themselves.
Really like the ambiance and building itself. The food was delicious although the baked goods were not as good as I had thought they would be. Very pleasant setting and great to linger and chat.
Amazing service and food.
Our waitress was unfamiliar with the menu and the ingredients in the dishes. She was unfamiliar with what was or was not available the evening we were there and one of our group ordered chicken which was clearly undercooked. The waitress tried to convince her that is was, in fact, completely cooked; it was the type of chicken it is that caused the visible blood on the plate. The waitress then said that if she was uncomfortable eating it, she would be happy to take it back and bring her something else. The Manager came to the table shortly after and apologized for the dish being obviously undercooked and comped my friend's drink. I am so disappointed that our experience was not good--we walked in and decided that we would return next month with another friend. It is a lovely place with such a nice "feel". Unfortunately--we've decided to go somewhere else.
Outstanding dinner. Very friendly staff and a diverse menu.
A very pleasant surprise.... will definitely go back.
Excellent service .. loved the brunch menu.
