The food was fantastic. The lamb was delicious, and the steak was the most tender I've ever had. The rosemary parmesan fries were a great starter, and a good size.

Our server, Beth, was beyond excellent.

We sat outside, and while the weather was nice, the outside atmosphere is only just okay. Inside seemed much nicer. Some lighting and more comfortable furniture would help.

We will absolutely be going again.

Great meal and great service. We were visiting from out of town and this restaurant was recommended by a friend. Our experience was wonderful and we plan to visit again on our next trip to West Des Moines.

Food was good but beef portion was very small. Both soup and deviled egg appetizers were really good. Nice little local restaurant but not anything I would drive across town for

We went for restaurant week and they were out of 2 entrees and 1 dessert. We went to order the fries which stated GF not GF2 but GF. The server proceeds to tell us they are in the same fryer with other things. Well that’s not GF then. So that was a bummer. Food was just OK. Dined here before and service and food were way better prior than this trip.

A fabulous evening. The food was, as always superb. It was “restaurant week,” which put more strain than usual on the kitchen, but everything was still done to perfection. Lovely way to celebrate my wife’s birthday.

I went to lunch with my grandma, aunt, and mom to celebrate my grandma’s birthday! Table 128 is her favorite restaurant and as always it was perfect for lunch. I think the lunch portions are a good size and the food is amazing. I personally love the Brussels sprouts. I get them every time I am there. Also love the mini chocolate chip cookies! They are the perfect little dessert.

The food was very good. Dessert choice was Sweet Corn Creme Boule. Very intriguing! A little wary of it, but tried anyway and it was great! However, the noise level was high, it was freezing in there and despite the server's attempts at being timely and attentive, the kitchen must have been behind, because we waited quite a long time for each course of our dinner.

Table 128 is always fantastic. It's restaurant week so the value was great. Had Black Bass Crudo with Fennel and preserved Lemons. Rib eye with Couscous and raisins and aurugala. Had some great craft cocktails to start. They have a great wine list for with your meal. The service is impeccable. Amanda is great and if she doesn't know something she will find out right away.

Service was amazing. My waitress knew a lot about the food and was more than willing to explain. When I asked what wine goes good with the special she chose very well and explained why it would be a good choice. Was honest about desert portion sizes. Food was cooked amazing and I loved being told everything that was on our cheese platter.

We were driving from Denver to Chicago and stopped in West Des Moines for the night, hoping to get a good dinner there. We were not disappointed, but glad the restaurant emptied some to reduce the noise level as we ate. Swordfish was terrific!

The food was fabulous. We had the tasting menu with pairings. And it was amazing. The service was a bit hurried but efficient and the restaurant was fairly noisy for conversation. However we would come back. The food was innovative and the price was right.

This is one of my favorite restaurants & my go to for their Brussels sprout salad with grilled salmon. I was so disappointed they have discontinued the cold Brussels sprout salad for a warm version. In my opinion, the warm is ok, but the cold is (was) outstanding.

This restaurant was an big upside surprise. I was expecting something decent, but was very surprised with the food, the staff, the ambiance. The whole team was very inviting, the food exceptional and the environment very conducive to a great experience. The restaurant location is in a strip mall, but once you get through that, you will be very pleasantly surprised. Would definitely recommend and definitely go back.
