On a recent "Date Nite" visit I was impressed...

On a recent “Date Nite” visit I was impressed as usal by one of my All-Time favorite Des Moines All-Star" stand-bys. On a busy Friday at 8:00 p.m. I enjoyed a supiror meal with a friend. We had a non-rushed cozy meal on a rainy nite. The waiter was knowelegable, non-intrusive, well timed and Very Professional. He greatly deserved the 30% tip I gladly left. Chris’s is as always’ a show stopper! Keep it up and you will remain one of the top eateries in the mid-west! Very well appointed and reasonably priced wine-list. Great Cocktails! (Manhattan and a Gimlet)

Caesar Salad w/ shrimp

Excelent! Great Home-Made Dressing

Raspberry Chicken Salad

Very Good, but overly sweet

Escargot Royale

Over the top and well worth it! Never fails to impress

Calamari

Perfectly fried with great dippers

Seared Scallops

Really good, but the broccoli was cold

New York Strip w/ Lobster Tail & satuee'd mushrooms and onions

Medium Rare and spot on! (Lobster Tail might have been frozen… not sure) Stupendious!

Warm Chocalate Cake

Tasty nothing out of the ordanary, but the sauce was grovvy!

Christophers has great escargot

Christopher's is a great restaurant. It can be very busy, especially on the weekends, so be sure to leave extra time or have a reservation. I have never had a bad item on the menu, but my all time favorite is their escargot. Good…

We are long time residents of the Des Moines area and have spent many enjoyable celebrations at Christophers. We have been eating there since 1969. Christophers is not only our favorite place to eat out but also one of the best for food…
