We decided to eat there for our one year anniversary and when they seated us and gave menus, "Happy anniversary" was written at the top for us. They personalized menus just for our occasion. It was the little touch that made it special.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat an awesome experience!We were in Des Moines to celebrate a special occasion and chose this restaurant based on its recommendations. We were not disappointed! From the time we entered the restaurant we were welcomed. The expansive wine selection was impressive. And our waiter was outstanding. He was attentive and helpful and exactly who you would expect and want at a great steak house! He had excellent recommendations for the entrees, wine and dessert! Actually, the soufflé dessert was one of our favorite parts of the evening! We had a memorable evening!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steakhouse in Des MoinesGreat food and service.

Every single aspect of the dinner experience was perfect, from making the reservation online, arriving, getting seated, all the way through dessert and leaving.
This place is expensive, but worth every penny. The steak was superb, and so was everything else. My wife mentioned to the hostess that this was our anniversary, and when our dessert came out they had actually printed "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate around the rim of the bowl. What a surprise, and to top that, they gave us the dessert for free. We will be returning.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I always lookMy wife and I always look forward to dinner at 801.
