Very nice Des Moines metro place for a great dinner. We went there as a large group and everyone's dinner looked great and tasted delicious. Our problem was our server who was very slow and came back to our table smelling overwhelmingly of smoke. Obviously the reason we had been left waiting for a long period was because of a smoke break. This is totally unacceptable behavior for a fine dining restaurant.
I also dislike when servers remove plates to box left-overs for take home. I just feel boxing my own assures me the way it is boxed. This was especially true at Ranallo's when our server took plates for boxing and also for removal from the table at the same time - and stacked them. Used flatware was placed on the top plate of my friend's delicious chicken marsalla which was planned for lunch the next day.
Food delicious - service standards must be improved.
