Wanted to try out The Stuffed Olive , had heard good things from co-workers. Did not disappoint . Fantastic Appetizers that were huge portions at a reasonable price . Service was outstanding , friendly , attentive and even a little comical. Would and have recommended to several others at work and outside of work already.

Reservation meant nothing, they didn't even know we had one. But seating was not an issue. Service was a little slow, but not bad. Food was good.
Busy night but was still seated in a timely manner. Only downside was no desert options available. Great service!
Everything was GREAT!
Excellent service tonight; delicious martinis; and wonderful food. Glad you're open and operating at 100%. Always a treat visiting The Stuffed Olive!
Lively and fun with a good variety of food and cocktails. Any type of martini you could ever want!
A+ Work across the board. Excellent service, food, cocktails
Great time, great food, will definitely come back!!
I understand the importance of having a digital copy of the menus, but the drinks menu was not available and would not load on my phone. When I mentioned this to the server, they did bring a printed copy of the drinks menu. However, the drinks menu did not have descriptions for any of the Martinis, so I had to use my phone to look up general descriptions, which is not always easy to guage with the specialty drinks.
One of my favorite restaurants in Des Moines. Great food and drinks!
Always a great experience. Love the small plate food options! Super service!!
Wonderful food and service!!
On vacation with my sisters made reservations online and it was over looked. The manager came over and apologized for the mistake said they’ve been busy. He just gave us the next table available so just wait another 10-15mins. Food was good waitress was nice gave use buy 1 get one free drink for the Voodoo Club above. Food was good and the drinks were too! Overall experience I say is a 7.
Service was good, but the food was way overpriced. They charged us for extra bread for our spinach artichoke dip because we didn’t have enough to even finish the dip. We were also charged a convenience fee for paying with our card. Nothing horrible but it would have been nice to be aware of the extra charges.
As always the stuff olive delivered! The food is great and compliments the atmosphere and drinks wonderfully. I like the casual setting and quiet background noise so conversations can take place without scream talking. The drink as always are my favorite in Des Moines. We live out of state now and this was my one stop I had to make and it did not disappoint.
First time to the Stuffed Olive was a successful date night! Service, drinks, and food were all spot on.
The tables at this restaurant are spaced enough so as to inforce social distancing. And the service is good.
Kaytee is the best server! She makes great recommendations for martinis and if you don’t like it, she’ll get you something different. Food is good but really, I go there for the awesome martinis. So many kinds to try! My date forgot his credit card but fortunately I had just signed up for their rewards club so they had my phone number and Kaytee called me so we could come back! That was awesome! I will always be a fan of my favorite martini bar in Des Moines!
Waitress was so sweet and attentive. The tuna and bruschetta appetizers were amazing and such a fun martini menu!!!
Great service, enjoyed the visit and was in a great environment!
The stuffed olive is one of our favorite places to eat and have a drink. We always love the food and service
Great all around, especially distancing and very creative libations!
Great food, service and atmosphere as usual.
It was great to get out of the house for a couple of hours. Our waitress, Katie, was phenomenal and extremely attentive. Fantastic drinks and wonderful food. Definitely will be going back soon. Thank you!!
Love the martinis
Best service (and martinis) in town!!! Love this place!!
Waitress was awesome food was delicious it was a great experience. I've been to the stuffed olive multiple times it's always good
Ten of us dined here before a Civic Center( just up the street) show and we made reservations to come back before a future show with Brenden ( or Brandon?), the mgr., before we left for our show. Great food, great server (Ashley). Will definitely come back. Treat yourself to their salted caramel martini.
Katee was a fantastic waitress, when she was busy, other helped out. There was a large crowd of people for the Civic Center, but and everyone looked happy. I highly recommend this establishment.
We had good service, good food, and the place was buzzing. The noise level was a little high but we really enjoyed the music, so not a big deal.
As always, our experience was wonderful. The food is amazing and service wonderful. Great Experience!
This is an intimate, well-lit, fashionably appointed cocktail lounge/restaurant. We were seated within minutes of arriving for our reservation. While this was dinner for us, we decided to do drinks and Tapas. There are over 100 martinis on the menu, my wife recommends the Chocolate Bliss (she's not a martini fan, but loved 2 of these), I recommend the Dirty Bird (Goose, dirty with blue cheese stuffed olives). We tried several Tapas and we especially recommend the Steak Bruschetta and the Spinach Artichoke Dip.
Always a great place to hit before a Civic Center show!
Great service! Fast & accurate! Food and drink were also great!
Our favorite place in DSM. Kaytee is the best server!
We love The Stuffed Olive, the martinis are awesome! Lots of variety to choose from. Will go back as often as I can.
Great place to catch up with friends. We ordered a few tapas, which were pretty average, not very authentic or as flavorful as I hoped. Martinis however were great!
Martinis were the best part. My date loved the salmon as well. 12 out of 10 experience for sure. Our waitress was great.
Always enjoy stopping here for a drink and some food before a show at the Des Moines Performing Arts Center.
Our civic center season ticket pre-dining and drinking experience! Make reservations before every show. Thanks Stuffed Olive - it’s not only close to parking and the civic center, but the customer service is amazing!! The food and martinis are wonderful as well.
