Latin American
Perfect For:
  • Special Occasion
  • Creative Cuisine
  • Fit for Foodies
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.

Our dinner at Deseo was amazing! We started out with a glass of wine in the lounge as we waited for our table. They served us truffle oil popcorn, to die for! Then we ordered a coconut butternut squash soup that was outstanding. Next was skirt steak and rack of lamb. It was so yummy! The sides were great too. We has so much fun dining at Deseo! I will be back and I'll bring my friends with me!

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding Anniversary at Deseo. We were treated like family. Our waiter Michael was very knowledgeable and really helped with the menu. My wife, who has celiac disease must eat gluten free, found many options to her liking. The food was incredible! Ambiance was romantic! The entire staff was friendly and very welcoming! We truly felt like we were with family. We loved our time there and would definitely recommend and revisit again.

I have never had such an excellent meal! And the service was impeccable. We took our teens here to practice their training in formal dining and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The servers were ALWAYS attentive. Our water glasses were never left even half full. The meal was timed perfectly and the staff is extremely knowledgeable in proper dining techniques. I was amazed by the quality of the food as I have never had meat melt in my mouth.

We had a great dining experience at Deseo. We started in the Deseo bar for their happy hour and enjoyed some of the best South American wine we have ever tasted paired with great ceviche. We then moved into the restaurant and enjoyed an excellent dinner paired with the perfect wine. The team at Deseo know their product and are quick to make your dinner a great experience. This is becoming one of our favourite stops in Scottsdale. The South American menu offers something for every pallet.

Enjoyed the wine flight. Wagu short rib and scallop dish were excellent. Service was a bit rushed. Restaurant was not overly busy so this should not be the case.

Our dinner for 4 was fabulous! We did the prix fix meal. Millionaire tacos and ceviche for apps and the big meat and shrimp meal, with leftovers for the next day. the chocolate cigar is one of the most creative deserts ever!
The atmosphere is very good, not too loud. Great for conversation. Phil, our waiter was outstanding.
We make a point to go Deseo every time we are in Scottsdale, and usually we are introducing locals to it and they love it, but they would not of thought of going to a" hotel restaurant"
We will be back next month!

Deseo is a unique and special restaurant in the Valley. The focus on Latin American cuisine sets it apart. And the wine list — which features wines from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay— is truly distinctive. The service was excellent. Deseo is definitely worth a special trip.

Went with a large group for my husband's birthday and had a great experience. The menu is a little eclectic for my taste and I felt my dish was great but maybe not worth the price. However my husband loved everything he got and really enjoyed the unique flavors in each dish. The service was great and they brought a nice dessert for his birthday.

This restaurant is very nice and the view of the patio and golf course from our table is pretty. Our server needs some additional training on manners. He reached directly across my plate while I was raising my fork. I was stunned! Evidently he found it necessary to take that action to remove a steak knife. There were a couple of other in appropriate actions that seemed odd. The food is great and the host was warm, friendly and professional.

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.
