Book your next event with us
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
First time dining there. Our sever Peter was outstanding making great recommendations and extremely accommodating. Would definitely go back.
Love all the different ceviche they have
Deseo has always been a "special" event restaurant for us and we have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries there for several years. Two years ago we had a bad experience and this past Saturday we decided to try it again for a special birthday. Well....in the past two years, the chef, manager and some favorite menu items have changed and sorry to say - not for the better. 4 of us started with the Nikkel Hamachi ceviche and duroc pork belly appetizers (both skimpy and mediocre). Two different bread orders and 4 entrees. The Wagyu Hanger Steak was 1/3 of the portion size as before and arrived BEFORE the other 3 entrees. The special short rid entrée arrived ice cold and the Arroz con Marisco is now served in a single portion arrived cold and sticky (we decided to eat it that way). Finally the special large shrimp dish was also cold. We returned the short ribs and the shrimp dish. So disjointed eating and when the returned items arrived, they were overspiced and almost inedible. Yes the manager came over and yes they gave us the "special dessert" BUT this experience has just reconfirmed that Deseo has not improved and has turned us off to returning again. Manager did comp the two entrees but this is Sad since the hotel is lovely and you would think Deseo would have kept with the times. NOT.
This was our second dinner at Deseo while vacationing in Scottsdale. Our second dinner at the chef's counter was as amazing as our first. The restaurant did not disappoint us.
This was one of the best dining experiences ever! Our waiter, Phil, was so informative about the menu. Everything was delicious! We had two different ceviches, and the fish just melted in your mouth! We also had the scallops and lamb, which were both cooked to perfection. We had a tiramisu dessert, which was also perfect! The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was wonderful!
Very enjoyable evening at the Chef's Counter table. The service was very good and the food was fantastic, the best we had in our visit to Scottsdale. The chef was accommodating, despite the vigorous pace of the evening. The sous chef was a pleasure to chat with and had some great knife skills. We certainly would recommend Deseo to anyone coming to the area, and if you are interested in the food prep and the workings of the kitchen we recommend a seat at the Chef Counter.
We were sadly disappointed with Deseo. Our server was excellent, he was thorough and made good suggestions. The menu selection is limited and there is no option for side dishes. Prices were higher than comparable restaurants for the quantity of food served. We all enjoyed our dinners, the skirt steak, lamb, and roast but the portions were small. Although we ordered an appetizer each, as well as both types of bread, we found we still had an appetite for dessert. Dessert was good albeit a little complicated and bizarre. We ordered one of each and only two of them were winners. I do not foresee a return visit unless menu items change.
Outstanding service from Peter. Big help guiding us thru menu and was all around a great waiter. Hostess kind. Wine list average. My only complaint and very marked up even for a hotel restaurant They did offer flight which was nice. Best pisco sour I have ever had. Very varied menu with something for everyone. Food very good
Consistently excellent and a very comfortable and attractive room.
The ceviche (Ecuadorian and ono) superb and flavorful. The spices and flavors standout. But the larger plate short ribs was the star with it’s tangy sauce and Wagyu beef that was like butter. The Hokkaido scallops equally tasty.
Sit at the bench and watch the cooks prepare all the food with precision and care. Service is especially attentive.
Very good food and friendly service.
Delicious food, high-end restaurant, impeccable service all make for a great experience on a special date. I love their shareable plates. My husband and I made our entire dinner out of them.
Food was amazing!!!!
It was an overall great experience with high food quality and flavor with a wonderful ambience.
Everything we had was well prepared, flavorful & interesting. Beautiful ceviche, GF bread option, Pork belly melted in your mouth (possibly the best I’ve ever had!). Entrees were nice size. If I had to offer negatives: Fried rice sounded yummy but was a bit of a disappointment & octopus was a bit over cooked making it rubbery.
Had not been here for quite some time but will go back soon. The service, the wine, and the food were all excellent. We shared all the plates between four of us and the best award went to the dark chicken nuggets. We ordered them last and wanted more but we were stuffed.
Sadly, this WAS my favorite restaurant for over 10 years but I won't go back. The menu has changed - prices gone up, portions down and no sides. The rolls which are amazing and gluten free - and you usually NEVER say those two adjectives together - are now $6.00 for 4 rolls. Haven't been there for almost two years and brought new friends to my "favorite" and was embarrassed. Honestly left still hungry after a hefty bill and went somewhere else for a snack.
Great ambiance, food was excellent as well as the service. A bit pricey for the quantity of food received, but I had a resort credit so the final price was more reasonable.
Great food. Great service. Outside table was lovely. Bagpiper was loud and repetitive. Very pricey.
Well be regulars!!! Great experience and staff!!
Always enjoyable, especially when having sundowners listening to the pagpiper with an increadibly view before dinner.
Apps came out quickly, but the kitchen was very slow on this visit.
They were very, very accommodating as I have many food restrictions and their menu did not easily lend itself to my needs, so server asked chef to prepare a dish made of this and that; not off the menu, and the chef did it! So delicious!!
Love this place!
Food is special and service attentive. BUT, noise level is almost painful
First, we enjoyed having a drink overlooking the golf course.....the wait staff was excellent...we ordered the salmon, medium which was perfect...the wine very good....celebrating a birthday and the dessert offered as a Preferred Resturant card owner...was truly exceptional and delicious....it was a wonderful evening...I will highly recommend it to my friends...THANKS....
Excellent service. Tiny portions. Very $$$. Short ribs were presented beautifully, however they were cloyingly sweet/rich.
Amazing meal and great service. Wine list is excellent, too. I had not been there for several years, but amazingly the waiter recognized me and remembered my name and where I sat the last time I was there!
Wonderful dining experience. Creative & delicious menu. Lots of gluten free options. Good wines. Excellent service.
It was amazing. The food was unreal. Not a bad bite to eat to be found. The Argentinian wine flight was just what I was looking for. Highly recommend eating here!!
Great food careful and attentive service menus is creative and a great representation of Latin cooking
Plates are well presented excellent pairing of wine flights with food
Will definitely return
Our waitress was so helpful and patient with several recommendations and explanations. We’d go back in a heartbeat. Food and outdoor ambience was GREAT!!
Haven't dined at Deseo in over 10 years. Have been wanting to return but just never had the right time and/or occasion. Ended up taking my youngest daughter, 14, for my birthday dinner. all I remembered - the atmosphere is great, with other diners enjoying themselves without too much noise. Very classy place but feel comfortable being yourself. All the food from appetizers, to salads, to main entrees, look and are delicious. The arugula salad, lamb, and free range chicken (our meals) were perfectly prepared. Obviously, the cigar dessert was fun and delicious too. Definitely not waiting 10 years again this time.
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Definitely worth it
We went to Deseo for the first time and took advantage of their 3 course Restaurant Week menu. It was a lovely evening sitting outside at the long communal table. We almost had the place to ourselves. The food was delicious and really creative and the service great! We'll also return and enjoy their regular menu. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The menu is different on line and we were disappointed that the there are no vegetable now on the menu and only one salad. But other than that, it was excellent.
Unique small plates that are always perfectly prepared. We sat along the kitchen bar so we could watch the food being prepared, a fun experience. We did millionaire tacos, octopus and tenderloin skewers. Can’t wait to go back.
When we are looking for a special and delicious meal, we come here. Service and food is exceptional. Will return for the wonderful appetizers and entrees and everything in between.
We ordered various appetizers and grazed the whole evening. They were all supurb. The chef creates dishes that are exotic and truly unique. Best mojitos this side of Litle Havana in Miami.
Great server, Phil. Made excellent recommendations on food and wine. Brought a beautiful dessert for our anniversary.
Beautiful setting and decor. Service exceptional and friendly. Creative menu and the small plates were outstanding. Wonderful evening.
