Mulberry Street Tavern brings a fresh yet nostalgic vibe to Downtown Des Moines. Once a hub for the city transit, it is now adorned with rich woods, leather, and a zinc bar that create a warm and timeless social destination. The open-hearth kitchen produces shareable worldly tavern fare, hearty entrees and, hands down, the best burger in Des Moines. Enjoy perfect classic cocktails, eclectic award-winning wines, and interesting regional and foreign beers on draught.

    I can't say this was a bad restaurant. It was just kind of "meh". I found it neither offensive nor exciting. Again, meh. Companion had linguini and clams which he described as "good, but not noteworthy". I had a hamburger which came with fries. Burger was o.k., perhaps a bit overcooked (yes, I get the undercooked thing, but well-done isn't necessary. Medium will be fine.) The fries might have been fabulous....crispy exterior with perfectly cooked interior and no grease...except for the fact they had been vastly over-salted. I left most of them. It is a pretty enough restaurant, but not the "prettiest one in Iowa", as the article we read declared. I know many prettier ones in the area. If we open up the whole state, that becomes an even higher bar. On the basis of this article, we booked another "prettiest restaurant in each state" in a couple weeks in our own state. Knowing the area where this restaurant is located, we feel fairly certain we'll be totally in agreement about it's "prettiness". Mulberry St Tavern simple did not meet the mark on either atmosphere or food.

    My son and I ate here for Mother’s Day. Our server was very polite and professional. The food was delicious and the ambiance was very pleasant. The wood siding in the dining area is beautiful. The noise level allowed us to have a decent conversation, which is important to us both. Was a great place to celebrate Mother’s Day!

    Food was tasty. However, it took over an hour for the simple breakfast items we ordered to arrive. The service wasn't great. We barely saw our waiter. May have been due to understaffing? Disappointing overall due to this.

    great location. Great ambiance and our cheese board was delish! After we finished our cheese board we realized that we hadn't ever ordered our food...the waiter said that he was waiting on us...The french onion soup is sweet with little broth flavor. The hanger steak was barely chewable. Our greens on our plate had no dressing or flavor. I didn't love the service and wait almost 25 minutes to get our bill. We were there a very long time and I wanted so badly to enjoy this place but was sadly disappointed.

    Had dinner on March 28, 2024 with my wife, son, and daughter-in-law, and our 2 1/2 year old grandson. My wife and I had dined there previously and I had a bad experience with a very tough piece of meat. Thought we'd try again on my wife's birthday. Drinks are very good although I only had a beer. Service was excellent (Robert was awesome!). Food was very average. I ordered the salmon. It came out lukewarm and the portion was quite small. Daughter-in-law had a $48 pork chop (We are in the pork capital of the US. Why $48 for a pork chop?) Also lukewarm. My wife ordered the romaine salad which she thought was supposed to be slightly charred. It was just romaine like out of the fridge. Also ordered the cauliflower appetizer and we weren't sure if it was supposed to be warm or cold. Cold it wasn't very good. The best meal was the hamburger our grandson had. The restaurant was very empty so there was no reason the food should have been served at less than optimal temperatures. Menu is also pretty limited. Very disappointed with the overall quality of food for a second time. Great atmosphere for a drink and some socializing. Beyond that not so good. Would not recommend this restaurant based on this second experience of less than expected quality of food.

    Robert, on behalf of the whole team, I am sincerely sorry that we fell far short of expectations on both of your visits. That is not the quality of food that we pride ourselves on and these issues have been addressed with the team. Thank you for sharing your experience with us so that we can improve and avoid these situations in the future.
