Steakhouse | Downtown Des Moines, Des Moines

GREAT service and the food was amazing!! Our waitress was very nice! She checked on us often but was very discrete and allowed us to enjoy our experience. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and they knew that from our OpenTable reservation so they decorated the table, had a nice card waiting for us and gave us a free dessert!! Great experience and highly recommend it!! More

Steak | West Des Moines, Des Moines

I had not yet been to Fleming’s so was super excited to finally try it. Unfortunately it is not someplace I need to go back too. The food was okay, good but not great. The spinach salad we had was fantastic and the Fleming’s potatoes were really good. I had a steak Oscar to which I have enjoyed much better versions at lesser price. It was just kind of blah. My husband had lamb chops and again he was less than dazzled. There are other places in town that we like how they prepare them better. Unfortunately our main entrees were the least favorite part of our meals. The service however was amazing! The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive on our date night. The ambience of the restaurant was great as well. Overall it was a pleasant experience. I just was expecting more. More
