It would be great if they could put a bit more space between tables on the center floor. The foursome next to our table was loud and obnoxious ruining our experience. We love this restaurant and made reservations well in advance. But this was over the top and even our server thought so.
Parking can be challenging. Terrific menu. Friendly staff.
Restaurants don’t get any better than St Kilda. Everyone helps everyone else and that makes the service exceptional. Plus we love Aaron very knowledgeable about the wine and the food. Love this place.
Great evening with friends! Our Service was top notch and the Server was the best!!
The food is fantastic. Cocktails take a while (we waited 20 mins) but are delicious. Service is almost always slow. Tables are tight in that you sit inches away from the tables next to you, which makes it difficult to have any private conversations.
This was an impromptu date night. The food was amazing. The service was great. We highly recommend everyone try this place!
Always enjoy outstanding food and service here. Our waiter Aaron from New York was exceptional!
Great atmosphere. Wait staff are very good. Excellent presentation and flavor of food.
My girlfriend and I both had the Cubano sandwich for an early dinner and it was wonderful. I finished my meal off with a cup of miel.
Great service and delicious meal. Love the ambience.
Not many vegetarian options. Tables for 2 wat too close to the tables around them. Felt like we were eating with 2 others we didn’t know.
St Kilda is always so good. Went for my birthday this weekend with a group of 5. They took super good care of us and made the evening special. The food was terrific and won over the two first timers. One of the best spots in town!
A fun evening for our group of eight. Wait staff was very attentive and informative. Food was was well prepared and delicious, and a substitution was readily made when requested. Drinks were okay, could be better. One more round table to use for our large group would have been appreciated; instead, we sat along the sides of a long rectangle. Overall, a nice enjoyable add to the Des Moines restaurant scene. Give it a try!
St. Kilda was a very enjoyable experience! Our server was extremely friendly and helpful and the food and drink were lovely. It's definitely pricey, but you get what you pay for!
Th he drinks are very good and the burger with blue cheese was delicious.
Loved the staff, funny and made you feel like home. Food was outstanding, fresh and complex.
Food and service were equally amazing - true hidden gem
We had been her for an exceptional breakfast so came for dinner. Minimal atmosphere and minimal comfort. Service and greeter exceptional. Food was ok to our tastes. We had pork tenderloin but it was served well done. We had Brussel sprouts but they were soggy due to the excessive sauce. We had the chicken ramen I did not care for the dish however my husband liked it. Very odd spices. Cocktails exceptional but very pricey for an ounce of liquor. Meal was slightly overpriced for my liking. However everyone is different so try them
Great food! Spectacular service. Tasted several wines, ordered dinner. Ramen noodles are fabulous and mushroom toast is a MUST!
The food was really good, everyone in our party enjoyed what they ordered. The service was personable and outstanding.
Really delightful place with excellent food of extraordinary flavors and quality wait staff. I like being so warmly welcomed at the door and waved goodbye on my way out. I do feel like a guest rather than simply a customer.
Unfortunately, they were out of the dish I ordered (the pork) but the salmon I had was excellent. The waitress was nice and attentive but referred twice to it being “date night” which was accurate but a week earlier I was there with a first meet with a new friend and it would have been awkward if she had kept referring to “date night” on that evening.
I really love the Firetrucker Brown Ale which you don’t find many places.
I did notice the difference in portion size from last week when I had the Cubabo sandwich (yum!) and the following week when my date had the same. His plate had twice the portion of Brussels sprouts that mine did a week earlier and his had thick bread while mine had very thin. I would have been disappointed if I’d ordered the sandwich a second time and had that thick bread. Small detail and perhaps unimportant but man, I would have loved twice as many of those exquisite Brussels sprouts!
Simple. Tasty. Drinks were tasty and we ordered an extra side of the French fries for dessert!!!
I love the atmosphere and design of St. Kilda. The food is Absolutely Amazing! This is a new favorite.
The staff are Exceptional! They are observant to your needs, friendly, knowledgeable, and very sincere!
I WILL BE BACK AND WILL BRING FAMILY & FRIENDS!!
Our server was amazing and we will defiantly be back in the future! Great place for a super romantic valentines dinner.
The food and service was excellent!! Want to go back!
Wonderful! New favorite!!
Food was delicious but service was slow. Waitress only came around twice and that was before the meal was brought to the table.
At first glance, I was cautious of the eclectic menu, but the food was delicious! Our waiter, David, was fantastic and made the experience very enjoyable!
Always have had great service and the food is exceptional.
Went there for boyfriends birthday. He was very impressed. We had a wonderful time.
We had a group of five celebrating a birthday with a Friday night dinner. Overall, the experience was great, but my dish was not well prepared. I ordered the mushroom toast, and it arrived cold with the egg overcooked.
Our server, whose name I don't recall, was also a little pushy in her suggestions for food and beverages. Nonetheless, I will go back as I have been very happy in the past.
Always a great experience. Aaron, David, and Christian are always wonderful. Can’t wait till they get their new locations?
Stellar food and service. We visited from out of state, and ate both brunch and dinner here! Unique and delicious!
Food was delicious and there was a nice selection of salads and sandwiches with unique toppings. Our waiter was wonderful, he was from east coast, Long Island and was very attentive. We really enjoyed our girls night out having dinner and conversation that we could all hear each other talk! Most restaurants are so loud that you cannot hear everyone at the table during a conversation. We will definitely return for another dinner or lunch.
Knowledgeable and friendly waiter who advised us on wine and menu items. The food was delicious. Two of us had the Mikonos salmon and one of us had a homemade Ramen noodle dish. We all left happy. A nice touch was a staff member who opened the door for us and thanked us for coming.
Fabulous chicken entree and terrific appetizers!
It’s always a great venue with amazing food. We went for a family birthday and took our kids with. Just prepare accordingly as there is no kids menu.
The service was outstanding as it usually is. First time bringing my kids, not sure I’d do it again. But excellent place for date nights/business meetings.
Loved this spot! Brussels Sprout app was a must try. Drinks were excellent with an interesting cocktail menu. The server was knowledgeable and very helpful. The manager's accommodating attitude was for me even more than the excellent food, the primary reason I would return.
Nice vibe and reasonable food
Prix Fixe menu for NYE did not disappoint. The food here is typically flavorful and always beautiful. Highlights were the main courses (particularly the vegan option) and beverages--bright cocktails and a perfect Americano. Service was friendly and efficient. As is often the case, the dessert course was not as inventive nor as precisely executed as the rest of the meal.
All in all, a favorite restaurant.
