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.

We ate here about 3 years ago and loved it. But the food this time was a horrible disappointment. They do get 5 stars for kindly giving my husband a lovely birthday dessert for his 60th but the arroz con marisco we shared was almost inedible.

The kitchen lost our order and it took an hour to be served dinner. They took 10% off. We just wish we’d left

Excellent neighborhood dining. Been there several times and it has been consistently great dining. Each person doing prep of food is a true artist. Plates are prepped perfectly. For a treat you should try sitting at the “rail” (their food bar) to watch fine prep techniques. Quite fun to watch!

Superb dining experience! Everything was excellent from start to finish. One word of advice, if you order the Pisco Sour, have it made with the real Peruvian Pisco and not the inferior Chilean kappa.

I went to celebrate an anniversary and everything was perfect from start to finish. The bar area is a nice place to start. The on site artist was a very nice touch. We ended up buying 2 flutes that he had painted to remember the occasion. Restaurant was beautiful and the food was out of this world. If you have a chance go!!

You never have a bad meal at Deseo. Great fish offerings, interesting starters and an innovative wine list. Did I also mention superior service. The chocolate cigar may be the greatest dessert of all time.

We were disappointed with this visit to Deseo. While I could nit-pick and offer comments on every course, the main reason for the disappointment was the level of greasy, inedible components of the entree. Neither of us ate the potatoes or the any of the accompanying items to our hanger steaks. It was heart-burn on a plate.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Everything looks familiar, but the depth, uniqueness and craftsmanship of the flavors are amazing. You can taste the care involved in every bite

I've been here several times before and I always thought all the food was outstanding. I didn't think I had a bad dinner but a few things were disappointing. We enjoyed our appetizer...but we both didn't care for the Peruvian Corn Dish. I thought my dinner was ok. I thought my husbands meal was ok....but not stellar. The sauces on both our dinners were weak and the horseradish potatoes were very weak. Loved the chocolate cigar dessert.

Our group tried all of the ceviches and they were all delightful. A bit pricey, but worth it for the quality of the whole experience. Good good, excellent service, and quiet enough so we could carry on a conversation. Will be back.
