Came here for a birthday dinner with family. Specifically looking for a quieter restaurant with fantastic food and a leisurely dining experience. Aposto delivered on all counts!
The best food, ambiance, and overall higher end dining experience in Des Moines.
Phenomenal food and service! Will absolutely be back! One of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at in a long time.
Good was excellent and service was timely. We will return.
No corkage on Thursdays! Staff were graciously accommodating in changing side provided with entree for our 6 year old.
Excellent all around experience.
Try the muscles they’re great! The crab linguine was also good.
Food was wonderful! We enjoyed a lovely summer evening outside on the porch. Service was perfect.
Great food and fantastic service! We will definitely be back!
The food was excellent, the service awesome, and the whole experience perfect.
Such a beautiful place. And the food. OMG the food was delicious. Wonderful suggestions from the staff. Overall a must do for good food!
Truly wonderful food and service. This was our first visit, and thanks to our preview during Restaurant Week, we will definitely come back to Aposto.
This was their restaurant week menu- just delicious and special.
The food was excellent! Our waiter was very attentive. We enjoyed the ambiance of Aposto. It’s a special place in DesMoines with very high quality food.
Excellent date night or special occasion restaurant! Great food!
Food was very delicious, ambience was perfect for a quite dinner.
Lovely atmosphere. Great waiter of rare quality. Fantastic food. I love this place.
Wonderful dinner in an intimate setting. Rotating menu. I’ll be making reservations again.
So good that we came back the very next night to try more! Amazing place!
I was fantastic as usual! I’ll be going back again soon.
We had dinner Friday night with our son and daughter-in-law at Aposto. We ate outside on the covered porch and had a delightful and delicious meal. Food and appetizers were great. Always a go-to restaurant for special occasions.
Caitlin (? Spelling) was fantastic with recommendations and knowledge of the menu. The service, food, and experience was great! We have been here twice and have been thoroughly satisfied both times. Joe did a great job on our first experience.
The cavatelli was as good as any pasta I’ve ever had. Amazing.
Our server Joe was very professional, they offer the most amazing menu and it's all fresh!
Delicious food, great service, lovely atmosphere in a beautifully renovated historic house.
Always great food and excellent service. 1st time on the patio and it was a nice experience.
Food and service was stellar. I’m a chef and tend to be somewhat picky lol. It’s rare that I’m thoroughly impressed, however Aposto did it. My fiancé and I celebrated our anniversary there on a Saturday night. We were early for our reservation and sat immediately. Our appetizers could not have been done better. Same with our entrees and dessert. Our server was very professional. She was attentive however gave us our privacy. 5 stars
Aposto is always our favorite dining experience! The (small) perfect menu, extensive wine list, and friendly, wonderful, knowledgeable family of staff make for a perfect evening!
Everything was fantastic!!
Outstanding service and food. Flavor filled and amazing as always! I come here for most of my celebrations. You will love it!
The perfect place for a romantic dinner or time with friends !
Aposto is always a wonderful dining experience! The food, service and ambience are all outstanding. Our table of four ordered Osso Buco, New York Strip, Seafood Cannelloni and Charcuterie Plate for entrees. The Seafood Cannelloni that I had was lobster, shrimp and calamari inside the house made pasta with a red pepper crema. It was delicious!
Great restaurant with unique ambiance, wonderful food, and lovely staff. Definitely recommend!
We cane here since it was a last nice meal before leaving my sister at DMU. We saw that it was awarded and figured it must be good. IT WAS AMAZING. Please get the Osso Buco. It was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Also our waiter was making it a dining experience and was lovely.
Great service & food
Great place for a quiet business dinner during which conversation was important. Nice atmosphere and relaxing for the circumstances. Service was great, as was the food and recommended wine. Thank you!
The restaurant has a nice vibe and was moderately busy when we were there. Our server, Joseph was great. We tried a few appetizers before dinner. Nothing had the "wow" factor. Dinner arrived, nice presentation, but same as the appetizers the food seemed to lack flavor. We left not exactly disappointed, but not sure if we would go back. Don't know if I would recommend this spot or not. Maybe it was just an off night......
Everything was perfect. Joseph is an exceptional waiter! Thanks for a great evening for our out of town guests.
The only negative with this restaurant is that it’s street parking only. It is an actual home, so we understood that would be an issue and arrived early to ensure we could find a spot. It is a very quaint setup, not a whole lot of tables. The service is superb, we had Emily and she knew the menu through and through. The menu is small, but this enables them to provide items with truly unique ingredients. We didn’t get any dessert, nothing they had sounded too appealing. But the food more than makes up for that. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, if you’re questioning a visit, DO IT!
