LOVE the S&V! Can't wait for Kent location to open. This is one our favorite spots. The cheese, nuts, bacon wrapped morsels, and entrees that never disappoint. We've never had a bad mean or drink. The staff is hip but real. They take hood care of us without hovering. Small, quaint and right in the middle of town. Don't miss... More

We tried the new Kent location at the Riverbend golf Course. The restaurant had been open over two weeks. There is still work to be done regarding service. There were a lot of servers standing and walking around, but service was a bit slow. Multiple servers were going to the same table trying to take orders. There was a lot... More

A married couple retired from Boeing started this restaurant in DesMoines ( and I think starting another location in Kent soon). They have an amazing offering of scotch and wines, esp WA state wines and a full bar offering as well. Their food is good NW pub style, my favorite is the fried Beecher's cheese curds with a honey mustard... More

Great place. The place is a bit dark, think of it as more like a neighborhood pub. Service was very attentive. The wine list was short on WA choices, a bit of a surprise. Had the pork belly appetizer - a hit. The pork 'osso buco' was tremendous. The grilled caesar was sharable as a starter salad [and the advice... More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Thursday "Wine Tasting Night". It started slowly after securing our reserved table. Was ignored for at least 10 minutes but finally someone on staff noticed and we were immediately attended to with apologies for the delay. Everything went well thereafter. We both ordered fabulous value priced glasses of wine from an Italian vineyard. My spouse... More

Good food a little pricy. The atmosphere was not as nice as I expected, more of bar than a restaurant. The staff were very plesant and all in all I would go there again.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant in Des Moines. I would not describe it as small but several times I have been unable to get a reservation on Friday and Saturday so if you want to go here on the weekend make a reservation. The menu is upscale for Des Moines. They always have a fresh fish of the day... More

I have been meaning to get here for a couple years, but never made it until today. It was a nice day so they had the big doors open to the street. The interior was dark wood, the bar was huge and very well stocked. I asked about their signature dishes. There was a huge pork dish and the owners... More

A small venue with excellent food and an awesome selection of single-malts. Noise level is a bit high when it is packed -- which it usually is. Good gluten-free options makes my wife smile.
