What a spot! Downtown Des Moine really has a gem with this restaurant. We dined here while visiting our kids in Des Moine, and of course we wanted to take them someplace that I could pick up the tab.
First, great atmosphere - very "big city" for the middle of Iowa. Nicely greeted by the staff, and we found the street level bar and cocktail area very appealing.
The wine selections were very good, as was the menu options. i could have chosen 4 or 5 items I would have like to order. We were a party of 4 and we all had something different, which was fun. In addition we had a antipasto platter as an appetizer, and it was delicious. All of our food arrived very timed, which made for a wonderful evening of family, food, and drink. Our waitress was very good, and seems to recognize we were in no hurry, and tended to the needs of our table very well. Of course desert was outstanding, and we topped it all off with espresso as well.
Wonderful evening, and the only thing I would have done different was to try and reserve a sidewalk table - it was a gorgeous evening, and I wish this restaurant was in my town.
- Warm and friendly atmosphere
- Incredible food
- Great wine selection, and nice pour size
- none really
- not really a con - portions are big, so bring an appetite!!
