One of my favorites in the des moines area. Great food that is more bistro different than most area restaurants. One of my favorites is the 128 Reuben. Not to forget though the service is as good as the food. Chef Lynn and his wife...More

Small restaurant in a strip mall that is one of my favorites in the entire Des Moines Metro area. All the food I've ever had there is absolutely delicious, unique and presented well. Don't forget to have a freshly baked cookie on the way out!

I had supper here with a large group of friends. We each ordered different items from the menu, so even though the menu choices are limited, we sampled a large assortment of the fare. The food is fresh and well presented from the kitchen. Unfortunately,...More
