Amazing food and excellent service. Doing a nice job of creating a safe environment and protocols during Covid.
Great food, great people. Love the place!
Absolutely delicious! Social distancing, cleanliness, safety guidelines followed, while the whole experience made life seem almost normal again. We will be back for more! Thank you for a wonderful evening out.
We always enjoy our visits to Table 128, this last time was no exception.
Jillian was an outstanding server, the food was excellent. I greatly enjoyed the roasted mushrooms.
We continue to wish you the best in these trying times. Thank you Lynn, Sarah and everyone.
The service is impeccable! Food outstanding. I cant say good enough stuff about this restaurant. Absolutely love it. Highly recommend to friends and family
This place is my go to lunch spot! The ingredients are fresh and in season.
Consistently fabulous! Menu is in season with the freshest foods and prepared creatively. Servers and all staff are friendly and welcoming
This has been our "Go-To" restaurant for a few years, but recent charges indicate a tendency to overcharge. A $6.00 charge to split 2 meals on to two plates??? Same number of meals on same number of plates as normal? $56.00 for a $15 bottle of Pinot...should have paid the $15 corkage. Great food, but will be searching for more options. It was an absolutely fantastic meal as usual, just felt overcharged.
Great experience and knowledgeable waiter who walked us through all the dishes while making great recommendations. The sanitary measures taken by adding plastic separators between each table were very well done which made the dining experience that much more enjoyable.
We requested to be seated on the patio. The umbrellas gave us nice shade and guests were appropriately spaced.
The food was amazing and unlike some of the other upscale restaurants, the portions were generous.
The wait staff was appropriately masked and was knowledgeable and gave good guidance on food and wine
Service is impeccable and the food was delicious, innovative, and beautifully plated.
Quaint restaurant. Very accommodating during the pandemic (safety dividers between tables). Great Ambiance. Friendly staff who provided great service. Food was excellent - beef short ribs are a must if on the menu. Definitely will be visiting again.
We have been on Table 128’s weekly curbside program for the past several months, and it’s been mostly fine, but on Saturday we dinned in instead. Good decision. They all wear masks and practice social distancing when possible, and they have installed clear plexi-glass partitions between some of the tables. Everything was excellently prepared and delivered warm-hot to the table. My wife had the short ribs, and I had the Hoison Chicken. I had a martini and my wife had a cab. Everything was excellent. We’v been coming here since the beginning, and we’ve never really had a bad meal (well, maybe once). Highly recommended.
1st time! Food fabulous, service even better. Can’t wait to go back.
We come to Table 128 almost weekly as a family and have never been disappointed. The hummus on this past week’s menu was amazing. Branca’s service was excellent and my kids, though preteens and hard to please, love Lynn’s burger every time we’re here.
Thanks for remaining open, for practicing such wonderful social distancing guidelines and for being amazingly kind people.
Food was delicious and fresh as usual. Our server Melinda was knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations for appetizers and entrees. She was friendly and professional. My wonderful friend and I enjoyed our meal and great wine on the patio. It was obvious they were taking all the COVID precautions to ensure customer and employees' well being.
Lovely patio. Excellent service designed to give a great dining experience while keeping safe and physically distanced. The Salmon BLT and Fennel salad are excellent. We plan to go back soon!
We celebrated my wife’s birthday with our family and had an excellent experience. Very good food, great service as always and we felt comfortable with the precautions that are in place throughout the establishment to protect staff and customers from COVID.
This is becoming a weekly visit for our family and we all enjoy it our visit every time.
Lovely evening on the patio. Table 128 excels in creating a safe and clean environment. I feel comfortable dining here and know they are going the extra mile for their clientele and staff. As always, the food is impeccable. It's a great place to go for something special as well as casual.
Interesting but effective way to maintain social distancing with plexiglass dividers between tables. Nice but limited menu along with limited and diminishing wine list. Unfortunately, the dinner rating was impacted by what I suspect was a failed air conditioning system. The place was HOT.
I've been there before and will definitely be back when it is cooler!!
Have dined at Table 128 often. Table 128 remains on of my favorite places to visit.
Fresh, delicious menu options with interesting flavors. Excellent cocktails. Always friendly and professional service.
Great social distancing - felt very safe and so nice to be able to go out for a great meal.
Love Table 128! Sincerely my favorite restaurant in Des Moines! Amazing quality with fantastic service!
We came with the whole family Thursday evening, and had a wonderful meal. Jennifer provided excellent service and I was pleasantly surprised, after we all had drinks and desserts, that the bill was as low as it was.
Thanks again for remaining open and always having such reliably amazing food and service.
Server was courteous and timed her interjections perfectly while we held our meeting. The food was fantastic and the restaurant did a wonderful job spacing everyone out.
Always wonderful service and food!!
This place is always so creative in their menu and so delicious.
My wife and I sat on the patio and greatly enjoyed the entire experience. The food and service are always excellent
The skirt steak was done perfectly medium and the potato salad was flavorful and just about as good as my mom's which is a great compliment. The brownie was so light and mixed with the ice cream, out of this world!
Always a fabulous experience. My favorite spot for a kale salad with salmon and something bubbly to drink. Could eat here daily.
Table 128 is our favorite restaurant. Food, wine, service, atmosphere are fantastic every single time.
This is one of our very favorite restaurants. Menu is wonderful, and service spectacular. Highly recommend trying Table 128, you won't be disappointed!
It was wonderful to return to a dining experience. We knew Table 128 was going above and beyond to make it safe. We sat on the patio and had a lovely meal. Friends dined later that evening indoors and said it was set-up beautifully. Table 128 has long been a favorite and we’re planning to return soon.
The best setup I have experienced for post-covid restaurant. Very impressed!
We sat outdoors. The cars and carry out traffic were noisy.
Love Table 128❤️❤️❤️
As always - 100% fantastic service, food, drinks. I adore this place and would suggest it for any occasion.
Two in our party ordered salads. They were sadly lacking for the price. Diner who ordered the ham and pork belly sandwich enjoyed it.
