Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Des Moines's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Everything was wonderful as usual except for a hiccup in service by the waitress. Upon arrival I asked about the martini special that ended at six. Our waitress said she would see if it was still applicable, stating that it was dependent on the time showing at the register. So rather than take our order and check, she stopped at two tables on her way to the bar. When she returned it was 6:00 and she stated that the offer window had passed. Ok. I had the lamb pasta that included some of the widest flat noodles I’ve ever had and it was delicious. My date had the two medallions of beef and it was equally good. We finished up with the flourless cake that was truly decadent. All in all another wonderful experience at Centro! MoreOpenTable Diner -

Discover Downtown Des Moines
Des Moines, nestled deep in the heartland of Iowa, is a surprisingly great place to find new American cuisine. Native-born Iowans and recent immigrants have combined their cultures to create fusion flavors like Polynesian pizza and Asian tacos from the highest quality ingredients. Downtown Des Moines has steakhouses that have high-quality Midwestern beef sitting right next to some of the heartland's best produce. Whether you prefer modern takes on pizza, seafood or pub food, head down East Court Avenue or Locust Street to try some incredible restaurants. Along the river, you can find bars and brewpubs for spending a casual night out.
