Absolutely wonderful meal, soup was unique and a perfect blend of flavors that hit all the right notes and was very satisfying. Scallops were perfectly seasoned and cooked accompanied by various vegetables that all added their own flair to the dish, for a harmony of flavor that only enhanced the other elements. Staff was friendly, attentive, and anticipated needs, and I never felt rushed or hurried. I was in town for business but will be back anytime I am in Des Moines for another meal. Looking forward to see what other creations come out of the kitchen!
Excellent service and overall vibe of the restaurant. We went there for a light late meal because the salads sounded very good. The beet salad was good and Brussels sprout salad was excellent. Salmon was cooked to perfection
Always a great date nite! We love everything there is about. Table 128. Amazing food, great service, value and overall place🙂 This is the place to go no matter the occasion, if you have not been you are seriously missing out! Go, you won’t regret it!
Awesome food. Always an innovative menu. Great service.
Once again, thank you Table 128 for a wonderful meal. Still our favorite for any meal any time, especially special occasions. Congratulations on your recent and well deserved recognition b
My go to dining spot in Des Moines. At this point I don't even look at the menu anymore. I just ask what the special is and that is what I order. Never a disappointment.
Outstanding, as always!
A very good review on Google. See it there.
Simply put, the NYE menu was not appealing. Lamb was the only red meat and grouper the only seafood. Neither of which was prepared well enough to overcome a lacking menu. This was my first bad experience at Table 128. While we will dine there again, have no doubt that we will check the menu first.
Fantastic food and service. It was NY Eve and while they were quite busy, everything was on point.
The crew at Table 128 never fail to exceed expectations all the way around. It has become our favorite place to go in the Des Moines Metro and never disappoints.
Fabulous, as always. A wonderful way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Food was excellent, particularly the rack of lamb.
a few friends met for a quick / rushed lunch and the server was most accommodating ! the food was outstanding as always! thank you Joan
Food was very good but also very heavy. So much butter and salt!!
Not very child-friendly.
Table 128 remains our favorite restaurant for both special occasions and just want to get out. The food is always fabulous. Both my wife and I had something new and we were not disappointed. We always start with the Brussel sprouts, which were better than ever! Can’t believe I not only will eat brussel sprouts but that I love them! She had the Cauliflower Steak and I had the Porchetta. Both were fantastic, with some new flavors and wonderful spices. Our 6 year old has a limited palate, but LOVES their buttered noodles with fruit. They take the same care with her meal as they do with ours, and it shows. And they treat her like a treasured guest. The desserts were delicious, as always.
Remains our favorite.
Marvelous, as always!
Phenomenal food. Excellent service. We love frequenting Table 128 for any and all special dates, and a random unforgettable meal in-between. Des Moines most valuable hidden gem.
A wonderful night at Table 128. The Brussel sprout salad is one of my favorites. My friend and I split the salad and then both order the scallops. They were cooked to perfection!! And an added bonus the chocolate chips cookies that came at the end...amazing😊
Amazing food as always. Love coming here for a date night or special occasion.
Table 128 never fails! Great food, great service, great drinks/wine! I always suggest them because no matter the occasion - it is THE place I love.
Never EVER disappoints! Love it when Chef Lynn introduces a new menu because I love new tastes and new preparations. Try the awesome Chicken Liver Mousse on the new appetizer menu! Yum! The scallops were perfectly cooked and so good! LOVE Table 128!
A fabulous dining experience, as always. The food is outstanding. A duck dish that was wonderful. The service was superb, and the meal well timed. Our favorite Des Moines area restaurant.
Loved the food and the people. It is always such an enjoyable experience!!
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding!
First time I've been to Table 128 for dinner and the food was outstanding. The four of us had different entrees with the pork and smoked mushrooms highlights in our group. My only complaint was the time it took for our entrees to arrive following an appetizer since we were there very early for dinner and only a couple tables of patrons. I also noticed someone bringing in their own wine so would definitely do that next time around and pay the corkage fee. Overall, an excellent meal and I would highly recommend.
One of my favorite places in the Des Moines metro. Food always delicious, service always delightful and the atmosphere is cozy and relaxing.
I always have an amazing experience at 128! The food is OUTSTANDING and I had a friend in town from New Hampshire who asked me to take her there because I’m always talking about it. She was so impressed!
Wonderful appetizers, wine, and dinner! Great service! Table 128 never disappoints!
Deliciousness, course after course!
As always, the food, service and ambiance were fabulous. We love Table 128. We were there to celebrate my birthday, and everything met up to our hopes and expectations. I had a pork dish that was done perfectly, as was my wife's Lamb dish. An outstanding dining experience.
Great food and wonderful staff! Great place for an efficient business lunch!
Excellent as always!
Food here is always excellent! The menu variety is interesting, portion sizes are just right. Consistently very good.
Great food and great service. Had co-workers in from Chicago and Minneapolis and both very impressed.
Great smaller venue with creative and ever changing food and cocktail menu. Enjoy dining here with family and friends. Appreciate the excellent wait staff as attentive but not overbearing.
We had a reservation for dinner on a Saturday night. It was busy, but the staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic! Perfectly prepared and beautifully plated. The only piece we would change would be the noise. We had difficulty hearing each other across our small table while speaking in a normal tone. Otherwise, a great experience overall.
Had the chef’s tasting menu. First course of chicken liver pate, with some type of blackberry courant, was excellent. Main course of lamb was juicy and cooked medium rare to perfection. Desert of poached pear and ice cream was disappointing. Pear was hard and tasteless— not poached enough. Hard to cut with a spoon.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere! My favorite Des Moines restaurant😃
We loved introducing your place to friends who are new in town! Your menu, staff & ambiance never disappoint! Thanks for a wonderful, leisurely evening!
Met a relative for lunch. Food was great. We both had salads. The warm Brussels sprout salad was delicious but would be better if the large Brussels were cut smaller. My guest had the chop salad and enjoyed it. Nice place for lunch. Service was great.
