    Outstanding. Excellent food and service. Waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating and the timing was perfect, not rushed but not slow. Food was delicious and fresh, well prepared. I had raw oysters from PEI and New Brunswick, Norwegian salmon prepared meunier style in a white wine, seasoned butter sauce with broccolini and lobster Mac and cheese. The lobster Mac and cheese was to die for and a very large serving, enough for the two of us. My son had lobster bisque with garlic mashed and broccolini and some of my lobster Mac and cheese, and peach ice cream for desert. Service was perfect as was the chef. Splash is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere and I think the best restaurant in Des Moines. I loved our table in the corner by the fish tank.

    This was our second visit this summer. The service is very good and the atmosphere is too. The first time my partner ordered the chicken pappardella and it was great. So, I ordered it this time but it was not the same -- flavors were not as robust or interesting. My partner also ordered it (since they loved it the first time) and said that was not prepared the same was as before. Our friends enjoyed their meals (salmon and walleye).

    EXCELLENT service, vibe, cocktails and starters. New entree menu needs more work. Tried all 4; pork medallions were the best; salmon, pot pie and squid ink linguini were “ok”.
