My husband and I rarely eat out other than an occasional pizza, but when we want a “date night” Aposto never disappoints. The food is creative and inspired and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The shrimp pizza fritta was amazing. More

French | Des Moines, Des Moines

We had the six course tasting menu with wine. That was a first for me. I would have considered the dish with the 64 degree egg, but probably not gotten it. It turned out to be my favorite course followed closely by the duck. I enjoyed the anticipation of what they would serve next. Worth the experience and the overstuffed feeling afterwards. Wait staff wasn't particularly knowable about the cuisine or the chef, but their service was good and timely. The courses were nicely paced. Would definitely go return. More
