I had the extreme pleasure of eating here while travelling on business. The food was exceptional. Had a chicken and filet mignon dish that was mind blowing. The chicken had a red sauce that was so flavorful. The filet was cooked exactly as I ordered...More

This restaurant is not only one of the best in Des Moines, it had consistently neared the top of the list for decades. They know the food and service components of their trade. Been here countless times and never had a disappointment.

Dinners run around $15 to $20 per person + drinks and extras. There is plenty of food, it is all good, and some can go home for lunch. I haven't eaten lunch there in years, don't really know what lunches run.

There is no dress code. Reservations are only accepted for a large group. (I think it is either 6 or 8).
