Always enjoy our time here . Oysters are always pretty good.but I’m not super picky.
Simple amazing. A must visit restaurant for those special occasions.
Our friends we had come with had eaten there before but this was my husband and my first time eating here. It was fantastic! The waitress we had was amazing and very helpful. The food was great! I'm not a seafood eating person but they had a few other options that were not seafood. I do wish they would've had more choices in the Moscato wine because I am not a red wine drinker and they only had two Moscatos to choose from and one was only served by the glass and not the bottle. The one I got in the bottle was a brand I could've gotten for less than $20 at Hy-vee but got charge a lot more for it at the restaurant. Other than that our overall experience was wonderful and I would definitely be back and recommend Splash to everyone.
great service, wonderful food. The Iowa Charcuterie was excellent
I am all for spending a lot of money on a great meal and service. However, this experience did not provide that. From a server trying to wrap up his shift and telling us that he'd "love to be [our] waiter but it's time to have a beer" to having lackluster service to the food being just ok. With the reviews, we expected amazing. We experienced "meh" with a side of unwarranted elitism. We have no intentions of returning.
Very nice, relaxing dinner.
We ate prior to going to the Civic Center to see Chicago
The food was so amazing. My date & I had no idea what half of the menu was and our waitress, Gina, explained everything thoroughly and was so fun to talk to! Definitely recommend for date night/girls night.
This was our first visit to Splash and it was perfect. From the hostess to the final goodbye. Our server, Zachary was just great. He explained the menu in depth, to us first timers, made some awesome suggestions, that we loved and made certain we loved what we ordered. We will certainly come back again soon.
Everything was great waitress very competent, always enjoyable as always!!!
My wife & I enjoyed dinning last Saturday evening before the show "On Your Feet" the food was A-one Service very good. We've eaten here maybe 3 times before and have never been disappointed.
We did dinner before the civil center show-5:30 reservation and was immediately seated. Jamie was our server-excellent. We each ordered a dinner salad. I had the peppercorn dressing- outstanding- not heavy but with very good. I ordered the gulf shrimp which were good-all four of them- my wife had the scallops which were very good. The menu included many dishes with seafood except prepared oysters. The bill was $100.00 plus tip. The only negative were the serving size which could have been a little bigger but overall excellent. We will return.
The ambiance is very nice and the service was really attentive. We enjoyed the aquarium displays and the quiet dining experience. The Calamari was wonderful!
We had not been to Splash for some time. Took another couple prior to a theater performance. Thought the service was great, the food was excellent. We had plenty of time prior to the show and the service was perfect, not too rushed nor too slow. We are planning to return.
Excellent, exceeded our expectations for seafood in Iowa.
Food was great! We got stuck being about the only table in the middle of one room so that was kind of awkward but overall experience was nice.
The food and service is always great. My only complaint is that it is time for a renovation.
The carpet and furniture are worn and dated and I think they need to update the interior.
We will definitely go back because we always enjoy the food!
We were treated very well, they made our special occasion very special. The food was fresh and delicious. Only downgrade was that we were seated next to a large event room and the noise from the room was loud enough to bother us. Made it hard to hear ourselves speak.
Our server Jamie was very good! She was knowledgeable about the menu and very professional! The food was prepared exceptionally well! We enjoyed our rare night out on the town! Thank you!
Great food and also great service. Possibly the best seafood in Des Moines. White table cloth dining.
Overall good place to eat and solid seafood. Lobstertail was a bit undercooked and the price was a little on the high side for an add. We will go back however.
This was Valentines Day Evening...everything was exceptional, except....I ordered a whole 2lb lobster. It came beautifully presented, basically in its original form. However it was very difficult to crack and messy to eat. I’m trying to eat my dish as elegantly as I can, I mean this restaurant isn’t a Joe’s Crab Shack where a plastic bib and mallot is provided to eat your entree. My husband and I finish our dinner and our waitress comes to bring the bill and asks how everything was. To which I replied, “Everything was delicious but this was my first time ordering an entire lobster and I’ll probably never do it again because it wasn’t worth the work involved and a rather messy experience.” Our waitress replied, Oh! Well next time simply tell your server to tell the kitchen that you would like them to extract the lobster meat for you!” My thought to this? Gee it sure would have been nice to know this information when I ordered my meal! The restaurant loses points for this oversight.
The waitress was very slow and forgetful......the bus staff were much better. Food was very pricey and could have been better. It is seafood, so dont overcook the lobster.
Good but over priced for the experience. It was nothing to rave about.
Been here many times and this was my worst experience to date. Our waitress, Amber, did not fill waters or wine glasses. Walked past our table several times without checking if we needed anything. Waited until 25 minutes after we ordered entrees to let us know that they were out of scallops. Not at all impressed.
Splash was a great restaurant and our family had a wonderful time. There was not anything that was ordered at out table that was not fantastic. We all sampled each others food because it tasted so good. I can't wait to go back again and again.
We had a party of 9. Everyone’s food was excellent. Service was very efficient but not very friendly
I asked for an intimate table... we were sat in between everybody it was my anniversary dinner and my food was way overcooked I had to send it back by the time it got to me, my man was done eating so I had to pack it up and take it home the meal cost me $200 between the two of us I wish it would’ve been a much better experience but the food was very tasty
Great time! Wish you were open after 1030 pm for brandy Alexander’s!
My 56th birthday! Our server, Ashleigh was amazing! She explained our courses, & was pleasant & intelligent to visit with! Our party of 5 had a great time, all our food was delicious ;)
Amazing food and service once again!!
Great service. Food was okay considering the cost. I wasn’t impressed with what we ordered given that I have paid less for better quality. We had the crab cake, Siracha scallops, and filet. The women’s restroom is embarrassingly dated and small. I can’t say I’d really recommend splash, unless you are downtown and specifically want seafood.
We absolutely love Splash. Not sure it's possible, but every visit is better than the last. The servers have always been delightful as well, and aah... the food... delish!
Fine dining at its best. I love All seafood. Splash is the best in town. East coast oysters and escargot is a must have.
The food is fabulous. I have eaten here several times with many different people, no one has gotten the same thing and each thing has been excellent. Nice and quiet.
Great Dinner. We both ordered off their specials for the month and it was a bit expensive but the food was excellent.
Prime Porterhouse steak for me and a bone in lamb chop for my wife. We eat low carb and they switched out our sides to other vegetables.
CHARCUTERIE & CHEESE board was great as well.
Overall it was a good experience. Rex did a nice job but seemed a bit overwhelmed with the amount of tables he was covering. We missed a salad but we’re given free dessert. Attention was ok but could have been better for $145 for two.
Dinner before a civic center show.
Hosted colleagues at a conference. Perfect!
Always great food and service! The sommelier is spot on!
