Upscale dining in Ankeny

The menu items are on the fancy side - lots of interesting drinks from the bar - elegant ambiance - professional wait staff - a little pricey but not too expensive for what you get. I will say that a couple of times we have been disappointed with something, but the staff always makes sure to make... read more

This is a great little place for that special dinner with a client or a date. The menu is fresh, interesting and always well prepared. The portions are just right, and the staff is very attentive and we'll trained. We have brought large groups here, one on one business dinners and date-nights - it's always just the right attention.

Love the food here, always count on well prepared and delicious entrees. The menu is well thought out and even with a change of owners a few years ago, the high quality has never been lacking.

Fireplace, which is a nice ambiance. Great for date night. I love the homemade cavatelli. I get it every time and always leave with half.

Best meal in Ankeny. "Finer" dining compared to any other Ankeny location. Food is always good- not amazing, but consistent. Price is fair for the quality of the food. Have always been pleased with food and service. Not fine dining like may think of in the cities, but definitely best in town, that's why I rated as excellent.

We had reservations for 3 on New Year's Eve. Got to the restaurant and all they had was a table for 2. Their reservation book clearly said 3. The bar manager was rude and told us we could eat in the bar or nowhere. We took the bar table; the bar manager couldn't have been less attentive or gracious. He... More

Good variety of well-prepared dishes, at reasonable prices. Venue is attractive. A nice place to go for a "date night" with your spouse. Something for every taste.

Just had appetizers and drinks in the bar. Service was average and not super attentive that night, but the food was really good and the atmosphere was nice.

We had reservations for 8pm on NYE. I called around 5 that evening to be courteous and let them know we were a party of 2, instead of 4. Big mistake, the hostess proceeded to tell me she has called me 4 times that day (false) to tell me they can only get us in at 8:45 bc a 32... More
