Stopped here for a cocktail and dessert: Red's Rye and the Ginger Beerchetta. Good ginger beer pairing I think.This looks like a nice place otherwise: they are very slow about cleaning off tables and I'm not sure why parents bring very young children here. Get a baby sitter for your date night people.
Excellent attentive service without being annoying: and they notice if there is a problem without you having to point it out. I disliked the sweet creamy garlic house dressing on my salad so I pushed it aside. Waitress noticed immediately and came right up and offered to replace it. Sweet!My steak, their house special, we cooked perfectly for how I liked it: I even got cottage cheese with peach slices (old school side to go with the old school restaurant) was my dessert.I like this place.
Service was non existent. We were there about 10 minutes and the waitress hadn't even acknowledged we were there. Left and called to com0lain. The manager tried to give us 2 free meals to come back. Told them free food wouldn't make up for the lack of service and that we would not be back to that location ever.
F&O's is the only place in Des Moines serving genuine Chicago-style deep dish: a mountain of cheese hidden under great sauce, on top of a made-fresh risen dough thick crust. Yum, nothing like it! They also surprised us with traditional thin crust pizza. My friend's looked (and tasted) amazing. So fresh!
If you want an outstanding pizza, try Felix and Oscars. This is the only pizza place in Des Moines where we order a thick crust pizza. The thin crust pizza they offer is good as well. We prefer the Merle Hay location, most of the staff has been with the owner for years, and there is something to be said for loyalty. Good salads also, be sure and try the creamy parmesan.
interior of restaurant needs updating but their pizza is the best in DSM.
The chicago style pizza takes about 40 minutes to cook but it is well worth the wait. Excellent for and service is just as good.
omg delicious bestest pizza in the world
We ordered a cheese top pizza and had it delivered to our hotel. It was pretty good. A typical Chicago style deep dish. My husband, daughter and I ate half of a medium, so a little goes a long way.
Excellent service, a bit on the expensive side. Very good food.
