The prime rib was amazing! The sides were perfect.
Looking for a quality dining experience with a great staff and great steak? 801 Chophouse is my first choice!
My fiancé brought me here to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful evening. Service was above reproach, from our arrival we were met by prompt seating, knowledgeable experienced wait staff with patience to answer questions, knew just when to come to the table etc. The food was perfect. Not one issue with temperature of our steak or the sides. The dessert was a bit heavy but it’s a dark chocolate tart. It’s supposed to be. Martini the best I’ve had since moving to Des Moines.
Food wasn’t up to expectations. Steak wasn’t cooked very well. Probably wouldn’t go back
Great service awesome food will definitely be back
I can't say enough wonderful things about 801! Everything was amazing and the Creme Brulee was one of the best I have ever had.
We had the best time at 801. My partner had the Sunday supper, choosing the Caesar salad, 8oz filet mignon, and creme brûlée. I had the Caesar salad and sea scallops. We had a huge side of onion rings, and started with calamari. Everything was lovely. Service from Amy was top tier.
We had a great time, Angie was a great server.
To expensive for what we got can go somewhere else get same amount for 30-50 dollars less
Steaks were undercooked and not warm when they came out
Service was great
The food was beyond anything else I've experienced in Des Moines. I was absolutely blown away by the quality and taste, the chefs are top notch. From the time we were seated to when we received our entrees was very quick, our waitress was on top of it from start to finish. This is a must try dining experience!
Nice dinner out at our favorite restaurant in the city. Drew was our waiter and he did a fabulous job making our evening out very pleasant. We will be back again soon!!
We had a wonderful evening at 801 Chophouse. It was our anniversary - there was a card on the table and the servers all said Happy Anniversary. We also had a free dessert. The meal was amazing. We felt safe and were able to enjoy our meal.
The food was cooked to perfection and the service was amazing!! They even gave my wife a complimentary dessert for her birthday. We will be going back and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for their next wonderful dining experience!!!
Thank for and drinks were incredible, as always. Best steak on the planet.
Great food, Service and atmosphere. Although I lived in Des Moines years I found a new gem for me. Excellent is all I can say!
Excellent as always! We spend every anniversary here! Best food, service, and drinks!
This was an anniversary dinner and when we arrived at our table they had special anniversary printed menus and a table card also gave us a complimentary dessert
Zach was our waiter and he did an amazing job! Explained everything perfectly! Food was amazing! One of the best steaks I have ever had!!
They had wonderful food and service! We will be back!
Ultimate experience every time! The key is consistency and that is the main reason I keep coming back.Best steaks around and management always make you feel like your the only person in the restaurant..
When ordering my filet mignon I asked for them to butterfly it and no pink (well done). I specifically asked for it to not be a hockey puck. What I received was a burnt beyond recognition piece of meat. It was my friend’s birthday celebration and I did not want to create any waves on her special day, so I didn’t say anything. Normally high end steakhouses will ask you to cut into your meat to see if it was to your satisfaction when they bring it out to you, but not at 801. 2nd time there and not impressed.
Our food was absolutely fantastic! Our service was exceptional, the waitress took excellent care of us and the manger came over twice to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We will certainly go back!
The night was wonderful. I didn't like being seated in the Bar area for our anniversary dinner. I would have preferred a more intimate location in the restaurant. As a black man, I've been placed by the kitchen or bar time after time so I'm a bit more aware of "Not Prime" seating. The bartender was welcoming and our server was exemplary and engaging. This was out first visit to 801 and will not be our last. The food was yummy, the ambiance was eclectic and our night was special as we celebrated our marriage. Great job to all and I'm looking forward to our next visit.
Outstanding experience in this weird time with Covid. Impressed with the dinning and employees
Food was amazing, as usual. Staff all do a tremendous job!
Excellent night, food and service! Parking not so great yet besides that excellent!
Debbie is great
This is the BEST steak you will ever eat in your life! The service is fantastic and the ambiance is excellent. The bread is the best you have ever had. The garlic mashed potatoes are the best (and I don't even LIKE mashed potatos!). I wish I could eat at the Chophouse at 801 Grand every night of the week!
We ordered the t-tbone for two. It was cooked fine but the meat was stringy and tough. Very disappointed especially given the price. All the rest was fine except we did order espresso and it was cold Don’t know if we’ll return.
Respectful of social distancing. Great meal as always, service was impeccable.
Great experience as usual . Nothing but five star reviews for 801..
We like it here bit pricey. Reservation on time...
801 Chophouse is still the place to go for special occasion dining. Great ambiance with old wood and an upscale feel. Service is impeccable. Cocktails are inventive, wine list is extensive and has a good range of price points. Food is high quality, classic old-school steakhouse. Recommend the wedge salad to start, plus the cheddar cheese hash browns as a side are exceptionally executed. Only complaint is that steak temps run on the cool side, so be sure to discuss with your server what you’re expecting.
Everything was great. Love you food great atmosphere. They even had a Happy Anniversary card on the table for us.
One of our guests has never been there before. He said steak the best he is ever had. My daughter Molly who has lived in Chicago 12 years developed quality taste on food there. She says porterhouse we split was as good as anything in Chicago. My birthday coming up. We will be back soon.
Great food and staff!
Fabulous service and food!
