Not the same Latin King. Miss Bobby! Dinner order was incorrect. Meatballs were extremely hard and packed too tight; was like chewing rubber. Sad to see a Des Moines gem now being mis managed by a firm. And the owner not there to meet and greet customers and to oversee operations. Have been a LK customer for over 30 years. Sad day.

This is my favorite place to eat when I visit Des Moines. Their chicken spiedini and tiramisu are excellent and the service is amazing.

Food was mediocre . Still can't figure out how they burnt the inside of the lasagna. Service was poor, waitress stopped by the table to bring drinks and food and never asked about refills. Guess you have to make up money some how. Was definitely not worth $80.

Great food! Atmosphere is a little loud and waitress could have been a little more polite. Definitely will go again though!

The food was good, but with that the water was terrible. It tasted like well water. They had no bottled water and only had seltzer water – yuck. This forced me to drink a beverage with sugar. We waited very long for our main dish and the server Debbie took food away from the table to box up even though I asked her not to.Upsetting. It was not a very pleasant evening or experience. It caused tension among the family.

The lasagna was overcooked and tasted like tomato paste. Could probably throw some sausage or something in the meatless meat sauce. The noodles were the same consistency as the sauce. The appetizers were to die for though!!!

Six of us first timers here- All plates emptied- we had to order dessert to go in fear we would miss something!(There must be a Latin King in heaven)Not one negative factor here. We are all absolutely astonished. Seriously, the food was so good we cannot find words worthy enough for this review. The service was on point, ambiance legit, and so classy it makes you feel like your in a movie.

Such a great atmosphere, friendly staff and the food is fabulous! This place does not disappoint! Try the mozzarella sticks you will not regret it.


Was so dissatisfied. My Spiedini was BURNT, dry and in general gross. Waiter never checked back. This was not an inexpensive meal. They’ve changed management and it shows
