Food and service were great. Just so loud, even when it wasn’t full. Had to shout to have a conversation.

The service was exceptionally slow this past Friday. Our food was room temperature when served and it was served late. From the time we walked in to receiving our meal was 55 minutes

I would recommend Townhouse to a friend but with a caveat. The location is good. The simple menu is fine. The service was very attentive, although the hostess seemed in a hurry. The only issue: the time of day. This place probably hops at lunch and happy hour. The problem was we were there for dinner. Other than some folks at the bar, at one point we were the only table in this very spacious, high-ceilinged place. Even then the noise from the few other patrons was obvious.

It worked for us because we were a group of five old friends who hadn't seen each other in years, so we were more interested in catching up than the food or the ambiance. But, if you want to get the most out of a quite satisfactory, probably fun place for drinks and a good simple meal (They have a quinoa bowl special each day!) come for lunch or happy hour - not dinner.

We lunched here on a Friday at noon, when the place was pleasantly busy with a steady flow of office workers. Our server was prompt and attentive. The drinks menu is very interesting, with fine levels of taste in their cocktails (we had the Cloud gate and the Three-Day Weekend). The tomato soup of the day was fresh and flavorful, chunky with bits of tomato. For our food, we had the carnitas tacos (very nice, lots of pork) and the Jambalaya (without shrimp due to allergy, which was readily handled), which had nicely fresh ingredients. Overall, the food is good and fresh. We will go again.

Nice venue, good food and service. A bit noisy as acoustics are not great. For me probably better for one on one lunches/dinners than a larger group. Definitely will be back.

How do you make a greek salad taste awful? Dressing was pink, olives didn't even taste like olives. I seriously thought I was going to be ill after eating a quarter of it. Not a good eating experience.

Good business lunch site. I ordered the Greek Salad with Shrimp - it was good, but could have had a little more dressing. Service was good and outdoor seating was great on a nice summer day.

Service was excellent! But the food...tried the urban greek salad with chicken. The chicken was extremely dry and the salad lacked flavor. Tab for 2 with tip (no cocktails, apps or desserts) was $55.

Really atypical experience. A lot of people must have called in sick or something. Lunch took 1.5+ hours. Water/ice tea was never refilled, food was not even lukewarm when it came. My server was running non-stop, but no one was ever around. This on a day when I really had to get going.
