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.
I have eaten here many times with my theatre group. This night I brought my family for the first time. I was very disappointed. We ordered appetizers and entrees. After 25 minutes i asked if they could check on our food she came back and said oh sorry the printer wasn’t working. And only a portion of the food came out. Five minutes later the rest did. In the meantime people that had arrived After us had already received their food. So was the printer really out or did you just forget my order?
The choices were great for a pre-theater dinner with tapas, sandwich or full meal. Several specials and drink options were also available. Food was great and reasonable priced.
A delightful evening for a friend get together. We were immediately sat at our table. We were greeted promptly by our server. Our drinks were fabulous! The food was amazing!
The food and service were top notch, as always.
We love the Stuffed Olive, especially before a show at the Civic Center. Our reservation was actually on the wrong date which was my error but they accommodated us well and our waitress was lovely. Food is good and we enjoy their small plates. I highly recommend for both drinks and food.
Love this place!!
Civic center production
The staff is very good and strives to please. Food is good and a nice choice on the menu.
Drinks good Food good w 2 Tappas very good and one average or less
News Year’s Eve event with live music! Great hospitality from the manager, top notch server, the martinis and food were delicious!
12 bar charity
Everything was great!
The service here is excellent! Great martini menu. :)
As always a nice relaxing place to have a cocktail and bite it eat.
Martini menu is pretty much regular cocktails served in martini glasses. Tapas were tasty but nothing special. It's a small place so tables are very close together and you inadvertently share your neighbor's conversation whether you want to or not. If you want a quick nosh before a civic center event or after work it's fine but it's not a destination restaurant.
Fabulous as usual! Our server was amazing and they were very accommodating to our family group of 12!
