My wife wanted to go there for her birthday.
I liked the history of the building.
Chairs were very comfortable.
The waitress was very friendly and attentive.
The food was awesome!
Tonight the pink oysters on the half shell was fantastic as was the sea bass, swordfish and shrimp . We ate in the bar and had fantastic service from Levi. What a great dinner and birthday celebration at Splash.
Service was exceptional! Attentive & knowledgeable staff but not hovering or overbearing. Food was excellent! Very enjoyable evening!
One of the best places in in Des Moines to have a meal.
Awesome evening - great service and wonderful food!!
Great food and service, first time there and it made a wonderful impression!
Food is exceptional - service perfect - best seafood - comparable to anywhere in the country - wonderful ambiance where you can have a conversation
Food and service was fantastic. We arrived a little early so we had a snack at the bar. We had a great time so we decided to have dinner at the bar. Perfect.
Server Emily was fantastic and made birthday celebration perfect.
Absolutely awesome dining experience. The staff were super accommodating and really set the tone for the evening. The food was devine. I highly recommend this establishment for anyone looking for a remarkable meal.
Good food and great service! The oysters are always yummy snd we tried the charcuterie plate…good also.
As always our food and service at Splash was excellent. Scott, our waiter was outstanding in every way, knowledgeable of the food and preparation of. He went out of his way to make our 44th anniversary dinner special.
The good- service, wine was reasonably priced, oysters fresh and flavorful presentation
The Bad- cioppino fell flat a little bland, Caesar salad was ok.
Overall the value wasn’t there for me, maybe I ordered the wrong dish but it was listed as a chef specialty so if that’s their best then their best is a bit flat and bland.
The Shrimp and Calamari starter was really tasty. Scallops were perfectly prepared. The Key Lime Cheesecake was big enough to share.
What an amazing experience! If you’re in Des Moines it is worth the stop. Emily, our server was top notch. She knew her stuff when it came to the menu and dinner choices. What a great place to dine and enjoy fantastic seafood.
Our food and the service was fantastic! A great dining experience for a special occasion
We made a reservation thru OpenTable on a whim with short notice for a Friday night. Had no issues there. Luckily a parking garage is right next door so parking is easy. We were greeted by a welcoming host and seated immediately. We had a very friendly, knowledgeable and caring server who made our evening wonderful.
Now, going in knowing that seafood in the Midwest is either limited in range of selection or quality, or is expensive, it was nice to see that selection nor quality was NOT the limiting factor with Splash. Our party fully enjoyed the food we had and the service we received. You have to like seafood to make selecting an item to order easier as their non-aqueous based selection is limited.
Thank you to all who are part of what makes Splash Seafood Bar and Grill what it is. Most of my party will be back at some point to enjoy it again.
Our food was delicious and the staff was very courteous!
Fish @ $42 was overcooked. They refunded my dinner cost, but I would rather have had a well prepared meal. I m
Nice place. dinner was excellent and location was nice.
One entre tasted bad, but it was socially awkward to send it back.
Always a treat when I visit DSM. Start with oysters…my favorite! Never had anything that wasn’t delicious…you can’t go wrong. Staff is attentive without being overbearing…they make your meal a delight.
Pineapple upside down cake was dry, the food overall was fantastic. They are getting a little too pricey to stay competitive. $45 for scallops is quite a bit. The servers are always top notch
creatively prepared sumptuous seafood, served by attentive staff.
Amazing food! Came for my birthday for the first tome and the waitress we had was great, the calamari and Alaskan king crab was so fresh, and the scallops were to die for!
We returned in less than three weeks after having a great time for my birthday, We were not dissapointed'
Foid, service and ambiance met if not exceeded expectations.
The dining experience however somewhat marred by this situation.
I Never got a call back ( despite multiple requests by phone to do so) from live person regarding questions I had about my June 20 reservation. Open Tabie changed time of my reservation twice and I wanted to speak with Splash staff directly about this. We wanted to dine at an earlier time and could have done so if my phone call was returned. Found out that there were tables available for an earlier time.
Returning customer phone calls are an important part of customer service. It is he first touchpoint of contact and is of great influence in the development of the relationship.
My daughter and I had a wonderful meal at Splash. Both the Tenderloin and Sea Bass were tasty as were our sides. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. If you are ever in Des Moines, make sure to dine here!
The food was fantastic with excellent service. Will definitely be back again.
Fabulous food, great service!!
Was in town for business and the customer suggested Splash. The service was great and the selection of food was good. Was disappointed in the white wine selection especially for a seafood restaurant, would like to see something from the central coast. Food came out as requested, I would say that the temperature of the entrees was warm, not hot. I like my vegetables hot, if they don’t melt butter than they are cold in my opinion. The bread was very good.
Courtney and Rex were GREAT as always
This visit was a disappointment. I had noted that my wife and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. I also called the business Friday morning and informed a young lady of that fact also. I was told by the young lady that they would "see what they could do" to enhance our dining experience. Nothing was done and I sent my swordfish mueniere back as it was overcooked (dry). A replacement piece was cooked correctly. This is a very nice high end dining establishment but I was disappointed that we did not even receive some sort of establishment acknowledgement as I saw happening for a presumed birthday celebration dinner.
VERY delicious and fresh seafood!
food was bland, interior decoration was straight out of the 70's. definitely not worth the price tag
We had a wonderful time. It was my 70th birthday and the perfect place to enjoy it.
The food and service was excellent. The ambiance was bad. Part of the reason that we chose to make reservations for our family was our previous ambiance experience at Splash. But the Seafood Bar and Grill was a big disappointment. There was a loud mechanical noise and no way to shade the sun coming through the windows. The room had the appearance of a back room of the kitchen. We wanted to do something nice for our family and this wasn't it.
Restaurant is unusual in that it is in the basement of a refurbished former hotel. The seafood was fresh and tasted great but I felt "enclosed" and in the basement. No complaints regarding the food but I probably won't be back.
We had a wonderful meal at Splash--we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and it was one of our first dining-out experiences since the pandemic. What a perfect evening--the exceptional food and wine and stellar service added up to a great night! Thanks to Dom and the team for making our anniversary really special!
