Table 128 was simply fabulous. We loved every course, from the salads, to the main course, and finally the amazing desserts. We can't wait to go back.
Our favorite restaurant. The meal is always fabulous, the staff superb. This time I have the rack of lamb, which was outstanding, and my wife had the soup and a salad, which she loved. You never go wrong here.
Hands down the best restaurant in Des Moines!!! The food, atmosphere, service...and did I mention the FOOD? Always a 5 star experience across the board.
Our first time at Table 128 Bistro & Bar. We went on Valentine's Day. It was absolutely amazing. We loved every minute of it.
Absolutely fantastic. Start to finish.
Such a great little place tucked away in a strip mall ... but definitely NOT a typical strip mall restaurant. Menu is unique and food was outstanding. Service was also outstanding. So many lunch items I’m excited to go back and try! We will definitely be back!
Another fantastic experience! Great service, nice wine list, a mean Negroni, delicious crab cakes, amazing scallops, the richest truffle dessert!
Excellent as usual. Great food, friendly wait staff. My go to place for both lunch and dinner!
Food-well prepared, interesting selections, great presentation
Service-we had Molly. Knows exactly how to be there when needed and disappears when not
Ambiance -mid-sized place, very cozy, just the right amount of lighting, not to much noise
wine-very good selection, staff knows their stuff
Price-not cheap, but then what do you expect for an upscale restaurant
Wonderful place with great food, Sarah knows her wines and pairs well with food. The small foreign wineries they bring in are especially neat.
The wine and food pairings were perfect! Table 128 is consistently the best!
Always a terrific meal.
Great food, good service, good ambiance.
The food was excellent. We had the sea bass special. Our server was on point with drink refills and checking in with us. An added surprise was chocolate chip cookies that came with our bill. Very yummy all around!
Remains our favorite restaurant in Des Moines for good reason. All 4 had the special - Chilean Sea Bass - which was exquisite! There is always a great blend of flavors in each dish and a wonderful array of favorites and new choices on the menu. Keep up the good work!
Portion size is smaller than I remember since they updated their menu. Definitely did not fill me up.
Amazing night out and the food was great as always. Brussel Sprout salad is worth the trip alone!
Wonderfully prepared foot.
Table 128 does an excellent job with their service and their food. The brussel sprouts are a must but everything on the menu that I've tried over my numerous visits have been amazing. Scallops were good this last time and the Mussels.
Fantastic service & amazing food. Always the very best!
Another outstanding meal here. Had melt in the mouth pork short ribs, mushroom dumplings and beef barley soup. Comfort food for a cold night. One of the best chefs in the Midwest, no doubt about it.
Great ambience, warm and welcoming staff, excellent craft cocktails and amazing food
Chef Pritchard and his team knock it out of the park every time!
Glad to see a new menu. The old choices were getting a little stale
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!
