Contemporary American
712 is a contemporary American restaurant named for the area code in which it exists. Our menu of mostly scratch made recipes features as much locally grown produce and natural, locally sourced proteins as we can get. The bar offers 23 craft beers on tap, numerous bottle selections as well as craft cocktails and sodas, a wine list and prosecco on tap!

Using the concept that details are the difference between good and great, our goal is to offer warm hospitality, exceptional service and quality ingredients in a lovely atmosphere. Our 44 foot mural by Gerard Pefung, boasts images of Council Bluffs in an effort to pay homage to this place that we are proud to call home.

If you’re dropping in for a drink at the bar, sitting down for lunch, gathering with friends, starting your day or finishing your evening, it is our hope you’ll feel something special each and every time you visit.

Council Bluffs has hit a home run with this restaurant! It has a varied menu, and everything I’ve ordered has been delicious. The wait staff has been attentive and courteous.

First time at 712 for brunch. It was very tasty and the service was excellent! I had an Open Table reservation and even though we were a half hour early, they were able to seat us right away. It was a nice day so we sat outside. Would like to go at night sometime for dinner. Will definitely be back and bringing friends!

Overall, the restaurant was very small which caused a significant amount of noise. We had 5 people at a 6 person table and couldn't hear anyone at the other end without yelling. It looked like there were only about 2 - 3 servers total and our server had a hard time keeping up. We didn't get refilled, an appetizer got missed (which was discounted but not removed from the bill). The portion size on the entree I got (chicken parmesan) was not worth 20 dollars and the "side salad" came on the same plate as the entree which I, personally, don't love -- but others might. The nachos appetizer, which is incredibly expensive for an appetizer, came in a small bowl. Again, the value just wasn't there. However - the food did taste ok. The menu was interesting. The restaurant decor was cool and the patio looked nice.

Food was great, maybe a little pricey. The server was good, not very friendly or engaging, but she did her job fine. One bartender on a Saturday night is pretty ambitious. Manager (?) was helping, but never greeted me or my guest. Overall, definitely will go back for the food.

We were passing through and found 712 open table. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The beet salad was the best beet salad I’ve ever had. And the mac & cheese with short rib was delicious. If I were coming through again I would certainly stop here

We've been to 712 twice now, and the food is very, very good. On this occasion, however, we waited far too long (15 min.) before a server stopped by our table, and again too long (12 more min) for the drinks we ordered. We had to ask to place a food order, with the result we had to rush our meal to make a show - which was too bad because all four of us really liked what we ordered. The noise level was a bit much to easily converse. All-in-all, though, if in that part of town we'd go back - though partly that's because there's nothing this close to good nearby.

As always 712 is an exceptional restaurant. Beer and wine selection is very good, especially the beers. Lots of variety of craft beers from both local and regional brewers. Food is excellent. The menu is a little limited but there are always off the menu specials along with a nice variety of handhelds and entrees. It’s definitely our go to place for dining and with friends in Council Bluffs.

Loved our waitress. Super fun and great service. I took my staff for a holiday lunch and they were very sweet and told us to take as long as hang out as long as we wanted. They have a unique menu with many great options. I would definitely go there again.
