I have gone with my family to Ginos for the last 30 years. The absolute hands down best food and service of anywhere in town. I cried when Ginos closed, but am so happy it has reopened and we will be going there tonight. My wife and I went weekly for several years, took the kids there for their birthdays, New Years Eve, and other events. Ginos is a tradition that we hope lives on forever.

I lived in Des Moines most of my life and my favorite place to go for dinner has and always will be Gino‘s. My Dad, Marlin Cole, used to take us there all the time and now, when I return to Des Moines, my brother and sis in law and myself along with my husband go there. It‘s the VERY BEST IN THE NATION in my opinion and that of my family and has been my entire life and will continue to be.
The Steak De Burgo is to die for, the onion rings (well ,you just can‘t stop eating them) and the servers are the BEST. And if we get lucky, we even get to visit with Gino which is a treat.

As long as I live and can get to Des Moines, I will go to Gino‘s.

Absolute Des Moines tradition... for the person from Johnston who thought the decor was like an unkept diner... GET OVER YOURSELF!!! Going to Gino‘s is like going home... the Veal Parmigan, the house dressing on the salads... the onion rings.... and gotta finish it off with a Golden Cadillac or Grasshopper after dinner drink....

Very unimpressed for the price. 6 people went for dinner and 5 didn‘t even finish their dish. Ambiance is no better than a unkept diner. Would never go back and never recommend. Save your money and go to a real restaurant for the same price.

Not a fan!

the food was very good. The service not so much. I had ordered a glass of wine and it came and the glass had lipstick on it. so told the waitress and she took it back to the bar. I watch her WIPED the lipstick off the glass and return it to my table. I told her I saw her wipe it off, she just grab the glass and left with no apology. I am sure 10 minutes later I got the same glass back. Not sure if I am ever going back. this was at the west glen restaurant.
