Anthony's HomePort - Des Moines
The food was delicious and the server was very friendly. The folks at the front desk seemed busy (or distracted) and less personable; this could be related to the restaurant being more popular than last few visits.
Great service and good good as always
Perfect place to bring out of town guests to relax and visit.
No oysters. Which was our main purpose for going there. Otherwise, it was good
Great dining experience.
We were a little hesitant at first because we were seated outside, which was no biggie but there were kids who were very loud. We get it we have kids and the staff really can’t control other people’s kids but they were disturbing the table next to them and trying to sit with them and we could hear them across the way. So that was a little bit of a turn off cause we dropped our kids off so we could have a nice quiet anniversary dinner. But they left shortly after we ordered drinks and things were great the rest of the way.
The food was fantastic, the view was great. Really enjoyed the seasonal offerings. It was a little noisy for us in that my mother-in-law is extremely soft-spoken and she also does not see well. We probably won't take her there again because we could not hear her and she really couldn't see the view. The elevator was really great for her. Making the reservation online was really smooth. We will come back by ourselves or with friends or take her there for lunch when it is quieter.
We waited 20 minutes for our reservation. We only were seated because I asked how much longer. What I went there for wasn’t on the menu. Very disappointed.
The establishment seems to be struggling since Covid. My first visit was not a great one, due to the food and beverages containing various things that made the establishment appear "dirty". Wish them the best, but I would not recommend eating here based off my first and last visit.
I was disappointed in their Covid safety protocol. Even though we asked to sit outside & had a reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes indoors for our table. Even though there was plenty of room outside, they sat everybody right next to each other. We asked to move & then they sat someone else right next to us. It didn’t feel like they were concerned about our safety.
Great dinner with friends for my birthday. Great service!
We had an excellent time celebrating birthdays. Food and service were excellent. The view was outstanding!
We met some another couple at Anthony's last night for dinner. None of us had been there for some years but the food, service and atmosphere were as good as ever. We won't wait so long to eat there again. Anthony's is GREAT!
It was my moms birthday a we had a great time !
We were from out of town and was looking for a nice seafood dining experience close to the airport with a view. Very good food, prices and service. Very relaxing and great view.
They took all of the great items off the menu. It was like hospital food.
Food was pretty good, but not perfect. Drinks good but not really memorable. Excellent view from our table. Waitress, Maria, was excellent and got our food served quickly when we said we were under a time crunch.
It was a wonderful lunch! Scrumptious food, delightful staff and lovely view of the water.
Friendly waitress. Beautiful view. Yummy food. Thanks
Excellent service and the salmon was wonderful. The view from this restaurant has a beautiful.
Took an hour for service at our table
Otherwise ok. Prawns oily, wine fantastic.
The only criticism is the parking system. It would be nice for the server to remind patrons of validated parking, and the checkout kiosk/machine was very slow and difficult to read.
Customer service was not good. You have to fit into their “demographic”.
Good views, nice people, delicious fresh caught fish
The cod was some of the best fish ever it was truly great
Best seafood ever!! Local flavors ! Good drinks! Gloria is 100 % best server ever!!
The entire experience was wonderful. I was a bit disappointed that I had sent them a note on my reservation that my husband and I were celebrating our 36th anniversary and there was no mention of it during our meal. many restaurants Atleast say something or offer a free dessert. Kind of bummed about that.
Our party of 4 had excellent food and service. We also had a quiet area for the first half of our meal. Then two loud parties were next to us, and we couldn't hear each other.
However, the only really negative thing is that we weren't advised that we needed to get our parking ticket validated, so it cost $2 - $4 (depending on what the machine did), and that didn't seem right. Open Table said that the parking is free, but it was a hassle and not free.
As usual, the food and service were great. The problem was that they sat 5 adults at a 4-top, with the fifth chair in the intersection of the main aisle and entry aisle. The table was too small for the bread bowl, all the lunch orders, drink glasses, and the wine bottle. The servers even commented that there was no room to place the entree plates. And, every time someone walked by or they brought new patrons in, I had to move my chair. We were entertaining friends from the Mid-West; I am sure they were not impressed with the table situation. I gave Anthony's 4 stars only because of their 5 star food and service; otherwise it would have been a 2-3 start rating.
The server only came to our table twice, we had to remind her to get our drinks, she then got them and then did not come back for 30 minutes when she brought our appetizer, we waited another 30minutes for our entree and never got it. We then asked for our bill and waited another 20 minutes at that point we just went up to the server station to ask for it and left. It was the worst restaurant experience I’ve had. I will not be going back.
Outstanding in every way (the halibut was delicious!!) but the service was impeccable. Melissa was our server and she’s reason enough to go back! Thank you for a great evening.
Real pretty restaurant and view. Food is amazing and I come here as often as I can!
Excellent dinner at Anthony's. Food and service were very good. Entrees are perhaps a little more expensive than they need to be.
Awesome views! Great drinks and dinner! Nice staff.
Enjoyed it very much. Wait staff were great, food was good, view was beautiful.
Our dinner was excellent and our waiter the best we ever had . We will be back
First timers for my family. The food was great. Service was rally good and very attentive. We will return with extended family members so we can share this experience with them.
AC was blowing on table, it was a little cool but still very nice
Lovely dinner with out of town guests. View is beautiful.
We had a wonderful meal, view was spectacular and our waitress was great!!!
We had a great time. Their service and food was great. The view was also very good.
