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.

    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.
    Mulberry Street TavernResponded on April 2, 2024
    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.

    The food choices were many and everyone in our party of 5 very much enjoyed their food. Our server was perhaps one of the best 2 or 3 we've had in the past coupe years. Our first visit and we will certainly return and recommend the restaurant to others.

    Had one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Cooked to perfection and the sauce was so good. Mac and cheese was great too. My husband had the chicken and loved it. Definitely 5 stars..Andre was a great server, recommended a great bottle of wine. Des Moines

    Even though I was dining alone, I had asked for a table with a window view. They were happy to accommodate me with a very large corner booth that could have easily sat 6 to 8 people. The server, Robert, was the epitome of perfection. He was incredibly nice, offered wonderful recommendations, and even made sure that I would be able to make the show I was heading to on time. The entire experience was perfect.

    Our waitress was excellent! She was very attentive and gave us great drink recommendations. The cocktail list is unique and gives you lots of new flavors to try. I enjoyed the AKA A Disco Song! The smoked salmon appetizer was light and tasted great. And the pork chop was the best I've ever had!
