    Fun brunch experience, really positive vibes with great music. For food the table favorites were shrimp and grits, wing appetizers, and lobster Mac and Cheese. They are nice with the Hennessy Punch, overall great experience.

    We decided on shareable plates….ribs were fantastic as were the wings. The stuffed potatoes were yummy too and lastly decided to try the deviled eggs which were some of the best we’ve had. Our server who was great suggested a few things for our next visit. The menu is full of great choices. We really enjoyed our first visit here and will definitely be back.

    Went for Father’s Day. Forgot to tell me they ran out of what I ordered. Learned of it when everyone else was served. I had to order what ever was the fastest, then they charged me full price. No compensation for my inconvenience

    I get it - it was crowded due to Father's Day but food my youngest child took the longest. She ordered classic mac & cheese and the rest of my family (husband & son finished half our food before hers came out). Very disappointing! We ordered appetizers and had to ask where they were - they took a long time to come out. The my order and my husband's order came out first (we ordered Halibut & Short ribs). Next came my son's order of Chicken & Waffles. We asked the food runner about my daughter's mac & cheese and finally our server (he was so overwhelmed). Very disappointed by the service - not sure if it was just the kitchen being backed up and/or not enough waitstaff, but extremely disappointing. We will not be back

    I’ve never had a bad experience at Row House. I’ve had dinner, brunch or just stopped by for cocktails and it never disappoints. The tables are spaced out, music is good, service is excellent and the food is great.

    We had a reservation for 5:45p but didn’t get seated until almost 7p. We gave the hostess our cell number to call when the table was ready, no one ever called. We had to REPEATEDLY ask the hostess if a table was ready before they finally seated us!

    We went for Mother’s Day brunch as a party of 5. Our 5th was stuck coming down from upstate and they seated us anyway. Our food was delicious—from starters to entrées. The drinks were nice and strong, and the staff was warm, patient, and friendly. Once our 5th arrived, she was seated right away. There was also lovely jazz combo.

    give this restaurant a 0. I made a reservation through OpenTable a week in advance and when I arrived, I discovered the entire restaurant had been rented out for a birthday party. I was told that I could not be seated and would have to wait. I had to ask twice to see a Manager and complained to two hostesses. This was a terrible Mother's Day celebration with my sisters and family. I was finally seated after a hour and had to text to communicate with my sister since the music was so loud, I was unable to speak. The Manager apologized and said I should have received a call three days before my reservation and should have been told about the party. Well, I'm sitting her now waiting for a drink. Let's see what the Manager does to accommodate this unprofessional treatment. Update: The manager gave a deep discount for the unprofessionalism. We made the best of it, but I would not return.

    I am a Senior 80 yrs. Old, music was a little to loud and the air condition a little to high. Other than that I enjoyed the restaurant and my meal. I guess I’m to much of a Senior now with the new trendy generation.

    The drinks we ordered to start weren’t good at all. Sent them back and the next ones were lackluster as well. Don’t advertise frozen drinks on your menu if you’re not capable of making frozen drinks. The food came out cold and was very bland. Cold food is a no go. Was excited about going here but it just didn’t live up to the hype. The ambiance was very nice as well as the music but the food and drinks just wasn’t up to par. I won’t be coming back.

    We used to really enjoy coming here but the quality of the food has definitely changed. We arrived on time for our reservation only to find the restaurant packed to capacity. We had to wait over a half hour to be seated as did many other reservations for that time. The food was very mediocre. Staff was attentive enough but clearly over extended. The jazz trio was good but way too loud; forcing you to shout over the table to the other members in your party. Unfortunately, we won’t be back again.

    Great time as usual. Row House diners always seem to be celebrating something - a birthday, a reunion, etc. The atmosphere is always festive. Great food, great drinks and a friendly, accommodating staff.
