The Stuffed Olive - Des Moines
Great selection of tapas and entrees. We had 2 versions of salmon, both of which were delicous. Service was excellent
Martinis galore! Twinkle-tini is my new fave along with my tried and true lemon drop. Stuffed olives are fab, food is amazballs, and service is bar none!
Always quality food and service. They make sure we are out in time for our Civic Center shows.
The kitchen messed up our order and the food took extremely long to get to our table. Drinks were great but I was very disappointed in the food and service.
I did not get all of the food I ordered. I mentioned it to server when she brought our food that I had also ordered chicken skewers and she acknowledged. However, the food never came. She didn’t come back to us until she wanted payment. I mentioned again that I didn’t get my food and she then said she would get an order to go and it would only be a few minutes. Then she also said my chicken skewers had been delivered to another table. After 5 minutes I got up and said to forget the to go food as we had to leave for a show. Another person heard and said she would refund my payment and managed to get an order in a to go box. I also believe I was overcharged. I had a glass of wine, Parmesan fries and the never provided chicken skewers and was charged $33. No indication yet of a refund.
Great good and atmosphere.
The service was quick. Menu selections were varied and food was great. Nice place to stop in before the theater or event downtown.
Stuffed Olive is a perfect place to stop before any event at the Civic Center or Wells Fargo Arena - great food, better drinks, and great staff/service.
Service is always excellent at Stuffed Olive never have a problem
Food and service were great! We have been there before and we love it when we return, never disappointed.
The food and martinis were fabulous! We'll be back!!
Nice restaurant. Quick and friendly service. Tasty and priced right.
We had excellent service, great food, and unique cocktails. We went to celebrate our friend's birthday and had a fantastic time. Our server made sure that our friend felt special on her birthday. We can't wait to go back. I love that we can usually make a reservation here.
Great service, food, price, and location. It's hard to go wrong with this place! I cut a half of a rating because of seating. We made a reservation, yet we sat by the toilets.
Birthday celebration for my husband prior to and after attending the Leanne Morgan comedy show.
Great service, atmosphere .staff very friendly and helpful..The martini selection is impressive .
Grant was an excellent wait person! All the martinis were wonderful.
The food was delicious! Service was great! So glad we made reservations with Michael Buble in town. We were seated right away and got out right when we wanted to before the show!
The food was great and the service was awesome! Can’t wait to go again!
Fabulous service, great deals on martinis and tapas! Great vibe!!!!
We had reservations for 5pm for a party of 6 and we got right in. Our server, Katie, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food and drinks were good. We will definitely go back
Really great martinis with a million choices. Loved the food too. Took us a long time to get our drinks but other than that we loved it. Brussel sprouts were great. Salmon tacos good too.
Great food, great drinks and great service. I didn’t drink but my husband had a salted Carmel martini and said it was delicious. We both had their hamburger and fries for our main entree and it was probably the best we’ve ever had. We also had the spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer. There was no flavor of artichoke but still give the food 5 stars because we still really loved the appetizer too. We will be back!!
We enjoyed our dinner there
Great food, drinks, and service. 5 stars all the way around. Meatballs were bomb!
Food was good, service was excellent! Nice location Downtown Des Moines that allows for a nice walk after dinner.
The food and drinks were delicious and the service was wonderful!
Really good selection of martinis! The entree menu is a bit limited but regardless everything on there is super good! Our serve also gave us great recommendations and was super!
Enjoyable time. Great atmosphere
I highly recommend and the Caribbean Salmon is absolutely delicious!
Food and drinks were delicious! I really enjoyed the extensive martini list, there is something for everyone. I would give it 5/5, but it took 10-15 minutes to get our drinks each round.
The Bloody Mary martinis are to die for! The blue cheese olives are simply amazing.
Co2 was out so all the soda was flat, small draft selection and the “tapas” was really just mediocre appetizers. Waiter was a super great guy and the service was nice, great ambiance but the food couldn’t keep up. Seems well rated so maybe they just had an off night
The service was very good as was the food. For a Tapas bar the proportions are quite large. Good if you have a large group. For just 2 people order one each to start, then determine if you want more or not.
Amazing selection of martinis...and the food is excellent too!
Excellent 1st time experience. The martini list is exhaustive. Several menu items not available due to lack of supply. There was still plenty to choose from. Our server was very helpful in selecting several tapas.
We enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and an appetizer. Everything was great - appetizer was on the small side for two people. Service was good.
We were celebrating my daughter’s engagement with her fiancé. Food and service were excellent! Thank you for the complimentary glasses of champagne, everything was perfect!
Bruschetta was on the small side but very good. Banana cream martini and old fashioned both exceptional. Chicken-bacon-ranch mac n cheese was great. Brisket sandwich was tasty. Service was top notch. Would definitely recommend.
Food was fantastic and the dessert martini made me want to melt.
