801 Chophouse – Des Moines
Amazing experience as always! Great food and service!
Everything was delicious and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed the lobster corn dogs, a fillet and fillet medallions, Boursin mashed potatoes, and asparagus with hollandaise. Every bite was delicious.
Great food. Great service. Great price. What else can you ask for? Would definitely recommend this place.
Excellent service....waitress, Joanna, was excellent and knowledgeable
Main server did nothing more than take the order and provide the bill - no smiles. Support sever staff were okay.
As always the food and the service was great. We went there on St. Patrick's Day and were initially seated in the bar area - asked to be moved as I pretty much hate the noisy environment in a bar when having a "fine dining" experience. If you're into sports bars with TV's on and so forth, you REALLY ought to go somewhere else - NOT inflict that on the rest of us as the clientele has apparently done here. We were moved to the dining room and had a great time with a great waiter. It's a great place to eat.
It was our first time and it was amazing. Our server, David, was fantastic!
I had the best bday dinner experience at 801 Chophouse. Great customer service and great company. All smiles and 2 thumbs up for me!
First off, our waitress was simply outstanding. There couldn't have been a better person to have served us. She was patient with us, without hovering over us. She explained things well. We got what we wanted and had an awesome time.
As for the rest, the food, the ambiance, the decor. Its been a very long time since I've been that impressed. My steak was amazing. My other 3 dining partners all got the signature Prime Rib. I had a twinge of thinking maybe I should have ordered that instead. But one bite of my steak put that to rest. I wish I could give this jewel of a place to eat 50 stars, or give it 10 5-star ratings. As someone who often times gets poor service, I can think of nothing negative to say. We had a great time with a great waitress, and great food. Thank you so much!!!!
The food was amazing and we had a terrific waiter.
The food was great. And the service was terrific. We totally appreciated what our waitress did for us.
801 Chophouse is our choice for a special evening out. The service went beyond by making fresh thousand island dressing for my husband.
The service was exceptional and even took time to take a photo of us.
My sea bass was absolutely delicious! The brussels sprouts were perfection and our server Zach was so helpful and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back !
Love the wait staff at 801
they are all so friendly and attentive
We LOVE them :-)
The server [Skip] was excellent and very accommodating = I wanted some but not all of the seafood platter and my friend did likewise and he made it happen - very good dinner and just what we wanted.
Enjoyed the Sunday Dinner Menu. Good proportions. Steaks and fish were perfect. Will be back.
Celebrated two birthdays in a group of five. Not one complaint from anyone in our party. Always a wonderful experience.
Our server, Jen, was knowledgeable about the menu & made excellent recommendations. Top notch, fine dining service. Food was superb. Steak done perfectly. Baked lobster tail melted in my mouth. Sides w could have been a meal by themselves. Chocolate soufflé was perfect, I recommend the vanilla sauce. Pricey but worth every penny with fine dining done right.
Great place to catch up with friends over delicious food.
Ambiance was fantastic and the food was phenomenal. A fine establishment and fine dining experience. The 801 cut Prime Rib was cooked exactly as ordered and was a massive cut for the price. Perfect for those who like the classic style of dining: wines & whiskeys, Sinatra in the background, low-light/low-noise setting, cuts of meat and delightful conversation.
The extra touches that were added to help us celebrate a birthday made the birthday girl feel just a little bit more special! It was a very nice jester and greatly appreciated.
For what the dinner was, I loved it and the service provided. Our server was attentive and patient with our party who wanted to visit for a while prior to ordering. The prices are high and if you are comfortable with that, this is a great place to dine for special occasions. I only wish that the portions were not so large.
Excellent Place all the way around!
Food is beyond good. Steak and primeribe are fabulous. The sides were perfect. Little bit pricey..
Awesome food and our server Billy did an amazing job.
Everything was just as expected a 5 star experience from the time we entered until we left we loved our experience.
We ordered the wedge salad with special instructions which they did perfect.
Then had Ribeye has brown with cheese and the creamed corn. Ribeye was perfect flavor and done just right. The hash browns with cheese are a must. The corn was a surprise with a sweet taste it was hard not to eat it all. Of course we brought all left overs home with us.
We ended with the chocolate soufflé which you should always get it’s our favorite with the 3 different sauces it’s perfect.
We recommend 801 always and it was exceptional again!!!!!!
801 is a great experience. The food is phenomenal, service is great and atmosphere is wonderful. Prices are high, but the food is worth it for a special occasion or business dinner where you need to impress.
I've been here 4-5 times now and the experience is always good! Steaks are top notch, service is very good but not in your face. Great Wine list as well.
Steaks were Delicious! Drinks were ok. Server was prompt and Must make reservations!
The Sunday night specials is the best way to treat for family to an amazing evening.
I have recommended this to several friends. This byfar was one of the best prime rib steaks ever. Melted in your mouth as did the mussels. Everything is delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable in what their items were, specials etc. They were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this as I already have and plan to be back. We had a groupon we used and felt even after that the price was right for the amount of food and how delicious it was.
The NY strip steak was not as tender as I would have expected at a place known for its steaks.
Great steaks! Some of the best I’ve ever had! The creamer corn and mac and cheese are also amazing!
Excellent food and service. We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff made it special by decorating the table and leaving an anniversary card. The Sunday Night special is a great deal for those wanting to enjoy 801 Chophouse on a budget.
This was our second visit to the Chop House in Des Moines. We went on a Sunday night since we weren’t able to get reservations on Saturday night. We found that they have a Sunday night special that fit our needs and saved us a few dollars as well. The meal was delicious as we had remembered from our first visit. The filet and prime rib were outstanding. The only disappointment was my glass of Cakebread Chardonnay. The wine tasted old and for the price I paid I thought of returning it but instead opted for a grapefruit martini with the next round. It was outstanding. Can’t wait to visit Des Moines again and go back to the 801 Chop House.
Unfortunately my son’s steak was too rare and my prime rib tasted like they cooked it 3 days ago and kept throwing it in the fridge. So disappointed. I’m used to Lawry’s In Chicago where they cut the prime rib in front of you from a freshly roasted cow.
I sent my steak back a couple of times. I ended up not even eating the steak. The waiter seemed like he was scared of me.
Probably the best meal I’ve ever had in my life. My wife and I went for our anniversary, and the table was decorated before we got there and there was a card from the manager congratulating us. The menu is pricy, but good lord is it worth it.
place was GREAT! we loved it and Debbie was the best!!!
Everything about this visit was amazing! You can not be disappoint with their food, such high quality
