    We were disappointed in the ambiance when we first walked in. But the waiter was excellent and the food very good. We left feeling like we would come back.

    Had high expectations for this place. Hostess was pleasant and helpful but bartenders were not very friendly. My martini tasted good however was not chilled enough. Our dinner server was friendly and upbeat. We started with a wedge salad that had sparse toppings and mediocre taste. The halibut and side of roasted carrots were delicious however the food wasn’t hot. Actually it was barely warm. We ate it and it tasted good but we didn’t tell the server until we were almost finished. Dessert was very good. It wasn’t worth the money we spent and was pretty disappointing based on reviews. Probably won’t return.

    We had been to the bar several times when staying at the HFDM but this was our first time dining. Great flavors across the menu, especially the Pork Belly Burnt ends and surprisingly, the grits. Impeccable service and a great team.

    This restaurant is my favorite place in Des Moines. The food is perfect every single time. The ambiance is flawless and everyone who works there makes my husband and I feel so special when we visit. Gretchen is one of our favorite servers- so bright and cheerful. William always is a sweetheart when he greets us. And chef James! I said it once and I’ll say it again- he’s the best chef in Des Moines and has curated some of the best meals I’ve ever had. Love this place and its people!
