Townhouse Chicago Ratings and Reviews
Our sandwiches were pricey because we ordered green beans with our meal rather than french fries and $7 extra per sandwich was added onto the price of the sandwich when we substituted!
My crab cake sandwich was more expensive than every "large plate" main dish on the menu except one!
The place closes down way too early. It was barely 1:30pm, when the wait staff and management began stacking tables, and closing up for the day. It didn't really help the vibe, as we felt a bit chased out (and were the last table to leave - and it was only 2pm by then).
It was a nice day so we sat outside. Service was prompt and neither of us was ever short of Lake Michigan's finest H2O. We both had salads which were good but both were overdressed. We agreed that we'd probably ask for the dressing on the side next time. It was a little pricey ($35 for the 2 salads) but we'll be back.
Overall, I thought TownHouse was pretty good. The food was really tasty and our server was really friendly. The downfall was the fact that they told me they tried calling to let me know there was a private event later that evening (we came for a late lunch -- 1:30 pm) when in fact, they did not call because I did not have a missed call or a voicemail from the restaurant. The other downfall was that they marked me as a no-show through Open Table even though I did show up with my full party.
The restaurant is very loud. We had a difficult time hearing each other. The tacos were delicious. The Caesar salad was bitter - the lettuce was from the bottom of the head. The dressing lacked flavor. I had grilled salmon on the salad, it was was fantastic. The cheese curds and chocolate cake were very good. I won't go back because I like to speak to the people I am having lunch with.
We went here for dinner before going to a 7:00 show at the Lyric. It's definitely a happy hour spot for the post-work crowd, but the huge wall of windows and the friendly chatter gave it a nice ambience.
The cheese curds were good - though could have been cooked for just a few minutes more, and big enough for four to share. The white fish was nice and when we told our waiter we were going to share it, he brought it out in two separate plates, both looking beautiful. I thought hat was a nice touch. They had a great wine special for happy hour as well.
It's a great find for that pet if the loop!
