My son and I have been wanting to eat here since he started college in Des Moines over a year ago. We got here before 6 pm on a Saturday night thinking we'd beat the crowd. No such luck - we were told it was a 75 minute wait. We put our name in and walked around downtown for about an hour and then checked back in. At that point, another customer told us you can be seated at the bar without having your name on the list so we did that and were seated within a few minutes. It would have been nice for the host to tell us before we waited for over an hour! We split the Italian Stallion salad and crab rangoon pizza. Both were good; although the wontons on the pizza overpowered any crab flavor. I think it's a bit overrated.
