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.

    Food was very good. We enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates, the salmon, and the cheesecake. The French onion soup was also good. We tried the "Wine experience". It was fun but think I will just order the wine I know I like next time.

    Went in for the NYE special set menu. Food was ok but nothing outstanding, the soup was more of a purée and wasn’t hot, the fish was mushy and the chicken was dry. The cream brûlée had a weird texture and was served warm and the cookie with the goat cheese cheesecake was over baked and unable to break with my silverware. Compared to other restaurants in town that do special set menus like this, the food just didn’t measure up and the server was very nice but but not very knowledgeable about each of the dishes or the wine pairings. Again, compared to others in town it just wasn’t that great.

    Mulberry Street TavernResponded on January 4, 2023hello & thank you for the honest feedback. The comments about each dish have been shared with the culinary team so that they can work to improve their execution of specialty menus going forward. Your input offers us an invaluable opportunity to learn and further train our team. We sincerely hope that you will give us another chance to impress you in the future!

    12/10. Our server, Robert, was wonderful. We ordered the scotch egg, MST burger, pappardelle pasta, brussel sprouts and lemon ricotta cheesecake. Everything was incredible. They also brought out their cake donuts to celebrate our anniversary. Our new go to, and we plan to spend every anniversary there. We’ve been back in the Des Moines area for 5 years and it’s our best meal since being back.

    I love the ambiance in this restaurant! Very warm and cozy lighting and swanky decor. The food and cocktails were delicious! It did take a while to get our first cocktail order and one person's meal was later than the others, but they were very apologetic about it, and we were having a great time so it didn't bother us. Our server Andre was so much fun! Very accommodating!

    I’ve heard great things about MST, so we decided to go here for family brunch. Our reservation was for 12:30, and it still took an extra ten minutes for us to be seated. The hostess wasn’t at the front for several minutes, so we were a bit confused. Our waitress was great, but she was spread a bit too thin, as she had our table of 9 and another large table. The food was only okay. The doughnut holes were pretty much just balls of bread with powdered sugar. Cinnamon roll was great. The food took a while to arrive. It looked great, but was lacking in flavor all around. All in all, everyone enjoyed their meals but it wasn’t anything to write home about.

    Mulberry Street TavernResponded on November 16, 2022hello Nadia, thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us. We sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience.

    We went to Mulberry Street for my mother-in-law's birthday. It was delightful. The server (Stephen) was wonderful. Our food was delicious. There was a mistake made with one of our orders but it was remedied right away. The staff even provided donuts as an apology. There were two slight snafus. We went for brunch at 10 am. The sun was pretty intense. It would have been great to have a blinds or something that could block out the sun. One of the guests had bacon that was a little overdone. Otherwise, we had a great time.

    Love the ambiance, bar, dining areas. Service was good. Food (Sunday brunch) was OK -- would have moved that up to good except the thick-cut bacon that was served to 3 of the 4 of us was so over-cooked it took like a hammer and chisel to cut it into bite-sized pieces that then threatened your dental work. Mentioned that to the server. Don't know if it was just over-cooked that morning or that's how they always serve it. Strongly recommend if you're getting that to ask the kitchen to be very careful to to over-cook it.
