Splash Seafood Bar and Grill
The food and service are both amazing. A wonderful place for a special occasion.
I know I can always count on Splash for the very best food, service and ambience...always exceeds my expectations.
Atmosphere was good and service was wonderful! Food was also yummy, well proportioned and cooked perfect.
My only compliant was, I wish there was more description on the side of risotto I ordered. It had blue cheese which isn’t typically in risotto and I DO NOT like blue cheese. I had one bite and couldn’t bring myself to eat more. :(
The restaurant has great decor, but the food was terrible and way over priced and my wife and I eat out in classy restaurants . Splash needs to upgrade food or chef. I had osobuco, all bone, little meat and tough. Very disappointed. My wife had like a four seafood combo. The oysters, mussels were so tiny you couldn’t hardly see them! Very sad!
Tough seafood and falla flavorless pasta. Expect more for the price.
Great meal again.
Our first time there. We really enjoyed it. Had the crab cake as starter and it was very good and a generous portion. My wife’s salmon was great. I had chilean sea bass. It was good, but not great. Overall though, we had a great experience. Good service with a friendly waitress.
Fantastic food and wonderful service. Could not ask for better.
Fantastic food and service
Drinks were awesome and so was the staff. Outstanding food!!
This was our first time here and we were very impressed. The food was fantastic and service great. The ambience is very unique, especially for Iowa. Lots of aquariums and interesting art on the walls. It is not inexpensive, but was worth the value. Great place for a special occasion!
My wife and I wanted seafood for dinner while in Des Moines and we made a reservation at Splash Seafood Bar and Grill. We were seated immediately upon arriving and our server was very prompt in coming to our table. After reviewing the menu options my wife chose the Sea Scallops and I decided to have the Cioppino. When our server delivered the meals and we took our first bites we discovered they were prepared very well. Throughout the meal we were provided very good service and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The next time we're in Des Moines we will return to Splash Seafood Bar and Grill.
All we expected!! Would recommend it to everyone.
Overpriced and average. Everything seems old , carpet aged. Bathrooms dirty
Went for the first time on Valentines day date with my wife. Her salmon was perfectly cooked, and I had the best scallops of my life. Waiter was great. We will definitely be back.
Bruce Gerleman and team excels at greatest seafood, wine, desserts and service. Marissa was a superb server and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at Splash... once again!
Excellent food and service. I felt like this was a very good meal and well worth every dollar
Food and service were underwhelming for all of us. Some dishes were drenched in heavy dairy, completely drowning the fresh seafood. The risotto seemed like heavy cream had been poured in it - I’ve had such better risottos. There are better options in town for a nice dinner at that price point.
Prices on crab, chilled platter, etc increased quite a bit and we weren’t aware. Used to be a better value.
Interior continues to need a renovation...more run down every time we go.
Amazing service amazing experience
Always a good experience
It was all around, great. Thank you!
Excellent meal though a bit pricey for drinks. Staff was knowledgeable of the choices on the menu.
Great food and service. They were out of several items on the menu otherwise wold have been outstanding.
Whenever my husband and I travel to Des Moines, Splash is our "go to" restaurant. They are very accommodating with my husband's dietary restrictions. The staff is so friendly and attentive - we love them like family. This time, we were able to introduce my husband's brother and wife to the awesome experience we have come to know and love. They were not disappointed. Our meal was exceptional and the service top notch! Can't wait to come back for another visit.
Great food and service. Always enjoy going to Splash
Excellent miso salmon and angry lobster. Prompt service with just enough time to get to the Civic Center. Excellent all around!
I had the siracha scallops and they were the best I've ever had. I can't wait to come back.
Excellent and non intrusive service starters to desert. And out on time for the play!
Very quiet tonight, the food was top shelf like always
We made a reservation prior to our show at the Stoner Theater. The restaurant was quiet and we had a very nice table with an excellent and professional server. The food, I had the salmon special, was outstanding.
I've been there twice before and everything was great but this time we had problems with the food. They switched my husband's and son's steaks so they had to be redone. My pasta came out cold. And the chef switched my husband's lobster tail to crab legs without asking bcuz he thought they looked too small.
Great dinner! Waiter helped suggest your food, he was spot on!
It was my wife's 50th birthday and the food was excellent, service was great and presentation was awesome, my wife's plate said happy birthday, she was ecstatic. She commented how her martini's were perfect. I was very pleased with my meal as well.
The food was exceptional. Our fish was cooked to perfection and side were equally good. The portions were more than adequate. The server was excellent. She was very respectful and helpful in explaining the menu and gave us time to look over the menu. We never felt rushed. The owner greeted us on the way out and thank us for coming. It was a delightful experience and we are planning our next trip back.
We had a wonderful experience while dining at Splash before our play at the Civic Center. The service was great and the food was even better.
Went to see JC Superstar with friends.
SPLASH is ALWAYS our go to before a show.
Missed Jeff and the Cherry Pie wine 😚 but all was GREAT as usual.
It's been awhile. Good decision to return to Splash.
Love to eat at splash! I really miss being able to go there for lunch. I ate there often. No one even sent a e-mail about closing at lunch time. I went there put my $3.50 in the meter to find out you are no longer open at noon. Was also disappointed that the large seafood platter was $110.00 at night and only $86.00 at lunch. It has the exact same things on it. You have the best seafood around I just hope you don't price yourself out of the competition. Keep sending coupons!!!!!!!!!!
