If you are looking for a place to experience fine dining this is the place. It's location is in a historic row house in the Capital District. This is what eating out is meant to be. So plan to spend some time to enjoy the company the food and the staff.

A very unique dining experience with delicious food and service. The atmosphere was relaxing and clean. The waiters make your dining experience fun yet professional. Each course is small but delicious. By the time you finish desert you are full and glad you came.

Totally blown away by the Rowhouse Restaurant. Wonderful experience. Did the full meal with wine pairings before a concert at the Performing Arts Center downtown. From the Chef's Taste to the Sorbet could not have been better. If you enjoy fine dining and beautifully matched wines don't miss the Rowhouse Restaurant. We plan to drive over from Kansas City again... More

This is my most favorite way to dine - you get about 3 bites of a whole BUNCH of amazing, locally sourced food... served up a bit at a time, like tapas but way more beautiful.

This restaurant is located in a 20's era building (row house) with a set menu starting with the Chef's Taste plus 4 more courses.. Each course is specially crafted to delight your palate and has a selection for wine 🍷 pairing.

Other than special days, this restaurant is open... More

Great food and excellent service. At first the portions seem a little small but by the end of the 5 course meal you are full and very satisfied.

I travel to Topeka once or twice a year to join a group of sewists at The Sewing Workshop. A dinner at the Rowhouse Restaurant is a must for a number of us in the group. I make the reservation online several weeks ahead. Food is always excellent--fresh, in-season, and imaginative. The service is very good.
