My fiancee and I tried Christopher's for the 1st time last night for Valentines Day dinner and we were extremely impressed! The atmosphere was busy (due to the holiday) but maintained an intimacy despite the various filled tables (almost all couples). The food was awesome! Much credit must go to our server, Dan. He helped us decide on an appetizer... More

We had dinner here with a group of clients we visited. The service was spot on, and the food was good. I'm afraid we got a little too loud toward the end of our dinner, but nobody seemed to mind. My steak was cooked a little more than I wanted, but it was still very good, and tender.

For starters, I had been to Christopher's multiple times around 5 to 8 years ago, and the food and service were great at that time. This past Monday I convinced my wife to try out the restaurant that I remembered, so we made reservations for 5PM. I should have realized that we would be fighting the "diner card" crowd at... More

We took our daughter and son-in-law there for their Anniversary. Great Itailian food. Very large portions. Great service. We went here because their rehearsal dinner was there too. Fantastic experience a year ago.

This is a classic Des Moines restaurant. Been around for years and has endured because it is a good restaurant. Clientele includes many senior citizens. Not a particularly "hip" please, but good ol' fine dining. Food is excellent. Service is good. Prices are reasonable. A good choice for a quiet night on the town.

Our daughter took us here for our anniversary and what a treat! Large variety of dishes including Italian, pizza, steaks, and sandwiches just to name a few. Onion rings were thinking and melt in your mouth. We had very good prime rib, walleye, and pasta. All good! Love the bread and homemade dressing. Friendly wait staff.

A large family group made reservations to celebrate a concert performance. The food was very good and they had a wide selection to choose from making it easy for everyone to make a choice they really liked.
