    This was our first time here. Our waitress was amazing. Our food was amazing. We were treated like the most important people in the place and it was obvious that all the staff treated everyone this way. My only complaint was that it was difficult for my husband and I to carry on a conversation without feeling like we were yelling at each other. But, we understood it was a busy place with lots of happy people and that is to be expected. 10/10 in our books. Amazing experience all around.

    Amazing! The food was so good. The service was fast. We had reservations at 8:00 and we were done eating by 9:00. The food was excellent. Usually when I eat an expensive steak I think I could have made it better myself but not here. Obviously top notch chefs. Its not cheap though so don't be surprised when you see the bill. Everyone was friendly. There was crowd in a private are with a lady who had a loud obnoxious laugh but thats not the fault of the restaurant. We don't treat ourselves often to a date night like this but I will definitely do it again and I will do at 801. Best steakhouse in Des Moines for sure! The service was 2nd to none. The waiter was very knowledgeable of what was on the menu and his recommendations were spot on.

    The food and service was great. We both had the filets and blue cheese potatoes. We preordered The soufflé and had a nice glass of wine. Jade our server was very helpful.

    This was our first visit even though we’ve heard about the exceptionally good food and service over the years, we finally decided to try it. So glad we made it because we had the most wonderful experience. From the courteous and knowledgeable staff to the divine menu, we enjoyed every single bite. Pre-ordering soufflé was the best! Cannot wait to return.

    As always fantastic service and ambience. Fried lobster appetizer was amazing. Steak and prime rib were not up to the usual standards we have come to expect. Both lacked seasoning and my wife’s prime rib was dry.
