I love Townhouse! I usually dine there at lunch time. So, to go at dinner time was a nice treat. The service was wonderful; thanks to our awesome waiter! I asked for salmon instead of grilled chicken skewers with the day's Greek salad special. Delicious! I wish that combination was a staple menu item. The only small complaint... high noise level. But, I equate that to being over 40. :) Thanks!
Always a great meal. Always consisently good.
Love this place, always a great choice for friends, out of towners, family. Wonderful, friendly, relaxed!
A bit loud due to lunch rush, but great overall experience.
Food and drinks was great service was good as well our waitress was attentive and had a great sense of humor, would definitely go back soon.
As always food is great. I craved for that special pasta again today. Very fresh and tasty cooked perfectly. Although service was a little slow that night . Very busy
I’ve been dining at Townhouse for years and always enjoy my time there. Food, service and overall ambiance is consistently good!! My only minor complaint: The server brings you this delicious warm bread with ROCK HARD, virtually UNSPREADABLE butter! How difficult would it be to set the ramekins out 45-60 minutes prior to service so at a minimum, the butter can be room temperature. Other than that, I love the place!!!
I had to flag down any waiter available for everything from bread to the bill. Once I received the bread it was burnt. My waiter was preoccupied with the bar and patio. It was 2pm on a Thursday not busy at all! This place is wide open with tables stacked on top of you. If you want to have some privacy and be able to talk don't come here during prime time. I booked on Open Table and mentioned it was our anniversary, they did acknowledge it. Food was great.
We hadn't been to Townhouse in a few years and boy have we been missing out. The food was fantastic. We will be back soon.
Great place. Excellent food, very friendly staff. We will definitely be back.
Service was excellent. I had to send my salad back because it was overdressed and our serving person cheerfully accomodated my wish. The dessert (flourless chocolate cake) was out of this world! Portions are very large. It would be possible to share with someone (which offsets the fairly high prices on salads and entrees.)
First time visit - had a great meal, service good too. Dinner salads are huge, enough for a meal. Mains - ribs and pork chop - were both awesome. Wish we had had room for dessert. Highly recommend.
The best every time!
Service excellent. Good choices to drink and eat. My first visit. Well done
Always a wonderful experience, valet parking and great daily specials. The food is always fresh and fabulous.
Townhouse is always consistently great, which is why it's still our favorite place even after moving 30 minutes away.
We’re from out of town but always make time to eat here. The food is amazing!
Service and food were both impeccable. We tried many, many items on the menu and they were all five star. Our group of three (two Berkeley students and One Mom) all enjoyed the food and the experience. Would highly recommend for a phenomenal dinner when visiting Berkeley!!!!!
The entire experience was great. I have been to Townhouse several times and my friend/colleague had never been before. The ambiance is always fun and I have to say the meal we both had was exceptional (Jumbo prawns stuffed with crab on a bed of wilted spinach). The presentation itself was almost as good as the actual meal.
Too noisy to hear person across from me at small table for 2. Left with strained vocal chords on a Tuesday night.
outside was deceiving, inside was chic . Great food, great service.
Love this spot! The company I work for is located nearby, so I make sure to stop in for dinner when I am in town. Super fresh, great flavors and a nice wine list are some of the highlights. Always great service. A not miss item is the Avocado Bruschetta - I could honestly eat this for dinner with a small salad. Amazing! Super hip ambiance - can't wait to get back soon!
Nice selection and food was nicely executed. Great crispy calamari and burger/fries. Veal shank was good and while it was nice to see a piccata, the chicken as dry - too bad it wasn’t pork or veal.
We happened to be in the Emeryville area at dinner time and stumbled upon this restaurant. What a wonderful surprise. We both had salads--the Ahi tuna salad and the Thai salad (with steak and mango). Both salads were very good, especially the Thai salad. The salads were served in very generous in portions--plenty for a meal with enough left over to take some home. The cocktails were excellent and we were impressed that a Ron Rubin pinot noir was on the wine menu by the glass, which we enjoyed, as well. The service was excellent. We will be back with friends.
Food and service Always dependable and pleasant, a fav to bring out of towners.
Everyone had a different entree and all were great
I love this place, my partner and I go there often for many special occasions, or just when we've got some extra spending money to drop on dining. The staff is fantastic, I've never had a bad experience with my food or wait staff here, they're extremely friendly, courteous, and efficient. The food is fantastic, and they always have in house specials, the appetizers, drinks and entrees are all absolutely marvelous. I'd absolutely recommend giving them a visit if you've never been there.
One of the best places I have eaten in a long time. A great variety of meals. All was fabulous. A bit off the beaten path but worth the drive. Excellent food and service. I live 2hrs away and I am already planning next trip for dinner with friends.
Take a chance you will not regret
Been here many times! Never disappoints! Hidden gem of the Bay Area! Orders were served correctly, food arrived hot and plentiful! Great wine and drink selection! Old Fashion’s are tasty!
Amazing food! I always get the Thai pasta and the Bruschetta.
Complete average. Food was ok. Expensive for what it is.
The Townhouse in Emeryville is always a good bet, but be sure to make reservations as it's a popular place! Love the menu and its variety and the special cocktails are great. I had a crab salad that was fresh and portioned just right. My friend loved her Thai steak salad. It's a little noisy but not to the point of being unable to carry on a conversation. Front desk reception (especially the very tall man with glasses) is always pleasant and helpful. Good service and good value -- definitely recommend!
Been there many times. Always great. Friendly, pleasant, wonderful food. Has become my "go-to" restaurant.
I love the ambiance and feel of this place. The waitstaff is welcoming and helpful with the menu and specials. The food is interesting and different, not your usual predictable menu. Everything is thoughtfully prepared with quality ingredients. We'll be back!
Overall, our dining experience was subpar in relation to other dining experiences we've had at comparable restaurants in the area. The service was wonderful, and the crab/artichoke dip was to die for. Unfortunately, the mushroom ravioli was overcooked. Additionally, there was a table of loud and obnoxious gentlemen seated in the center of the restaurant which disrupted our entire experience. It was so loud inside the restaurant that my husband and I were unable to converse normally. I would go so far as to say that the noise level was piercing. We will not be returning.
First time here I must say the service and staff were excellent. The food was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant
Crab salad was wonderful. Corn chowder excellent. Prime rib was a bit salty, but otherwise yummy. Great staff, nice crowd.
Convenient location. Welcoming ambience. Nice staff. Immaculate food.
Don't let the curb appeal view stop you from entering!
Three adults (aged 34 - 65) really enjoyed the good vibe and three terrific meals.
Establishment was very busy at 6:30 on a Monday night.
Appies included Avocado Bruschetta (very very good!) as well as Warm Dungeness Crab & Artichoke Dip.
Entrees included Almond Encrusted Seared Scallops, Chicken Piccata, and, Baby Back Ribs.
Dessert included Vanilla Creme Brule.
The appies, entrees & dessert were all very well received. Portion sizes were good as well. The Baby Back Rib dinner was quite large!
This was our first time there and a return date is assured.
Good all around—meal, service. High priced entrees.
