Showcasing imaginative Nuevo Latin cuisine, deseo’s (deseo is Spanish for “desire”) menu features a distinctive and skillfully blended combination of flavors to create delicious dishes that are bold and intriguing. This style of cooking takes traditional Latin American dishes and reinvents them using European and American cooking techniques and often non-traditional ingredients. The perfect start to dinner at deseo is to “descansar” or “relax” with a freshly created cocktail at the adjacent Muddle Bar, which specializes in blending fresh fruits (mango, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and more) with fresh herbs (basil, tarragon, mint and more) along with your favorite spirit for the perfect pre-dinner cocktail.

Had a reservation for 745, but didn’t get seated until 825. Minimal apology from the hostess. The food was OK, but not worth the price. The drinks were good. The Westin makes anyone who wants to take an Uber wait 200 yards away from the main entrance.

Great ambiance but food is very average (and expensive). Had halibut and found it to be tasteless and firm when it should be flaky. For the price I expect more.

My husband and I own a timeshare at Westin Kierland Villas, and this was our first time to dine at Deseo. It was amazing! We shared the Millionaire's tacos, the shrimp appetizer (awesome) and the short ribs. Since we are not sushi people, we probably would skip the tacos next time, but we sure would go back for the other two dishes. Service (Tony) was great, and ambiance was perfect.

Nice meal and ambiance. Afterwards we had coffee outside on the patio and listened to live music. Great spot.

Long story short. Snowed in in Chicago. The hotel was unable to accommodate us when we finally got out of Chicago. I checked in for our reservation at the hostess station and they asked whether or not we were staying at the hotel. We said no. We were then escorted to a high traffic undesirable table. Our request to move two tables over to a more quiet setting was denied. Crass.
UBERed back to our hotel. The Westin would not allow UBER drivers to pick up at the main entrance. Bush league. Welcome to 2018. Apparently they value their valet service more than the patrons.
Service was attentive. Wine list focused.

My recently bad knee made the long stairs down to the restaurant not fun. Of course, there is an elevator but it is not obvious to a first timer. The ambiance is low light, cool. We were not overly hungry....a foolish mistake. We had one starter, the passion fruit scallop ceviche. It was fabulous. We needed a second cheese bread roll to sop up the passion fruit sauce. My wife had the octopus/pork belly for her main meal, while I had the lamb rack with bright mint sauce. No dessert as we had some from the night before in our fridge. The ceviche was the star. An entire dinner of their various ceviches is our plan for our next visit.

We ate here last year and had the seafood dish for two. This year we came back with business associates and they ate the seafood dinner for two and we went with the meat. Fantastic! First we split a couple of appetizers, the million dollar lobster tacos and the lobster escabiche (ceviche), we not sure which we liked better. We had the meat plate for two, shrimp, pork, beef tenderloin and lamb. IT comes with a square hot stone that you can finish cooking or reheat your meats, it also came with a sprig of rosemary and little olive oil.

you must go !! my husband and I had a great experience at Deseo for dinner while on vacation in Scottsdale. we sat at the kitchen rail and watched the chef's prepare their masterpieces. the food was so delicious and different than your run of the mill restaurants. we chatted with sous chef Daniel who was most entertaining. we had a wonderful bottle of wine to go with dinner and shared a dessert. we would definitely go back and recommend to anyone looking for a special night out.

We had an amazing meal sitting at the chef's counter. We enjoyed visiting with the chefs the service was fantastic and the food was to die for. Especially notable were the cocktails, the squash soup and the hanger steak.
