We had the Lemon Sole and the Chicken Piccata, they were both excellent. The wedge salad was fine but probably wouldn’t order it again. Our server did a great job. We will be back.

We ate there on a Sunday. It was not crowded at all. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. We all had something different: steak, salmon, lemon sole, and a burger. No complaints at all

We were seated promptly by a very sweet hostess, she was so nice and attentive. But after being seated we were completely ignored by the rest of the staff. My husband and I ended up walking out. Won’t be back.

This restaurant is too expensive for what you get and the food was mediocre . On the advice of the hostess we ordered the calamari, which was rubbery and tasteless. My Delmonico was good and full of flavor but the asparagus was raw and also tasteless. There was NO bread! We did appreciate the quiet atmosphere and pleasant surroundings but that’s all we got! I really didn’t want to go to a noisy steakhouse but I would have gotten better food for less money.

This was not my first time eating at The Weather Room. I have eaten here several times and its always great. The servers work hard to make sure you are taken care of and the manager Zach is constantly on the move making sure things are perfect. From food to the drink this place is great. If you are thinking about meetings, catching up with friends, or having a nice meal with a significant other, The Weather Room is the place to go.

Love the new menu, can't wait to make it back to try additional items! Wine list is fantastic, but don't let that distract you from the beautiful pours of Blantons. We'll be back Weather Room!

The food was amazing, the service was great, and the feeling was very upscale. Seriously, all of the food tasted like bliss.

My only complaint lies with the hostess. Our reservations were at 5, and when we walked up to be seated t 4:59 she told us that the restaurant, "wasn't quite ready". But, as soon as I sat down to wait in the lobby, suddenly the restaurant was magically ready, and we were seated at our table. She was also wearing brightly colored tennis shoes, which made her look very casual and unprofessional. I'm not sure if she has a medical need for her kicks, but they make black, professional looking tennis shoes these days.

Besides the lack of professionalism from the hostess, everything else was perfect.

The Weather Room was the perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. They were following all recommended safety precautions. Our waiter Jesse was super knowledgeable, and friendly. He recommended some wine parings that went great with our entrees. The only negative was that the vegetables that came with our entrees were slightly under cooked and were a little crunchy. Overall, I would absolutely recommend The Weather Room for a great time and delicious food.

Food was mediocre at best, pasta was Luke warm. Calamari was good but nothing special. Overall it was not worth the price, but definitely not the worst place in Topeka!

What a wonderful experience. The Weather Room is a hidden gem. We had reservations for 5 pm and were seated right away by the manager, Zach who was very polite and friendly. Our server, Jessie, was very efficient and timely with our drinks and food orders. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Overall, excellent and we will be back!
