“Great food and a fun evening”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Our party of 6 just finished a great dinner at The Row House. Great decor - modern with local touches and a lively atmosphere. We had steak, cooked perfectly as requested and haddock served with vegetables and presented in parchment - delicious. Save room for dessert-we tried strawberry shortcake and turtle cheesecake, both were great. This was our third visit and we are already planning the next one. Service is very good.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I have been to Row House Lobster Co. twice so far and am looking forward to returning and working my way through the menu. There a lot of great options from both land and sea...heavier on the sea of course. Pricing is pretty standard and the wine list has great choices.

Seating options make it great for groups or couples and the bar area not only makes dining alone more enjoyable but provides a great spot to enjoy a drink.

“VERY Stuffy”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Most reviews dont disclose the reviewers age. My girlfriend and I who are both 25 went to the Row House and found the restaurant very stuffy. wWe are from Toronto and have been to more than a couple fine dining establishments, but never felt awkward ordering food.The row hous3 just made us feel like we werent welcome. Most of the other patrons appeared to be over 35, so perhaps they werent interested in entertaining the younger crowd, or didnt think we could afford thier food. Regardless, we ended up leaving and going to the restaurant next door (Fish Bones - our server actually recommended it) and instantly felt more welcome. I dont know if we were there on an off night or not, so I can't say the feeling is standard, but I can say that the place next door was amazing!

Hi Joshua,
Thank you for taking the time to bring to our attention your experience at the Row House. First of all, we would like apologize to you if we made you feel unwelcome.
To our knowledge, this has not happened before at the Row House, so when we saw your comment we were very concerned and talked directly to our staff to reinforce our high standards on customer service and friendliness. As you probably noticed most of our employees are between 20-30 years old, and we have always encouraged and welcomed people of all ages at the restaurant.
Again, we apologize and hope you will have a chance to return.
Regards,
Ian Dunsford, General Manager

“A charming spot in Charlottetown”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Lots of fresh fish, nice recipes incorporating lobster, an attractive setting. What's not to like. We enjoyed our meal (lobster tacos and lobster risotto cakes). The only sour notes were the French fries, which came out sodden with grease and indelible, and the arugula salad, which was too sweet. But despite those missteps, I'd happily go back again.

“I can't speak more highly of the food or the service.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Last night my wife, daughter and I ate at the Row House Lobster Co. I can't speak more highly of the food or the service. (Thank you Jenn, you were great) The menu was original and the most creative I've seen in a long time. All the food we ordered was well prepared and delicious. Broiled Lobster, Chioppino, Lobster Tacos, and we shared Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta for dessert. Now being from NYC the bar is way high when it comes to food. Well, all that's left to say is well done!
