Went here for my birthday, service was a little slow but I’m assuming it was because our server also had a party of about 20 in the area also celebrating a birthday so we didn’t mind. The food was amazing!!! Really good vibe & music. Will definitely revisit.

I am not going back to Deseo. This is the second time I have gone and had bad service. The first time the server never came back to take our food order. Second time, the pork tacos were inedible & my girlfriend had them sent back. Server did not offer a new dish or take tacos off menu. The Buffalo chicken dip was barely edible. The white sangria tasted like a mix. Also the restaurant was entirely too crowded.

Do not go here!

Excellent service, the waiter German was very attentive, the young lady at the front also, the food was expensive and terrible what made worst was the fact that the food was completely serve cold, the spanish potatoes was saggy, the bread was old, garlic shrimps didn't have any garlic taste at all, the serrano ham croquettes didn't have any serrano taste at all, at least if the food was hot maybe the taste would be better, we didn't send the food back because we were afraid of retaliation in the kitchen. We won't be back.

The service is very well when I came to the door I was seated immediately and they follow CDC guidelines most restaurants don’t inforce wearing a mask walking through the restaurant but when a couple who didn’t have a mask came in they made them either sit closer to the door or leave to go get a mask and I appreciate them following the guidelines during this pandemic
This is a great place to go on a date when you want to have a nice ambience for both you and your partner. The food is very good cooked very well hot one soon to the big plates really are large plates the services very well multiple people came up to ask me if I was OK if I need anything only downside was one of the dishes it just wasn’t as good as I thought it would be it was basically fried calamari it wasn’t very good and I wouldn’t recommend getting it but overall anything else in the menus really good even their drinks are very strong too

Sadly, this was possibly the worst meal I’ve ever had. My plate came out 20 min after everyone else’s, the shrimp was overcooked, the food lacked seasoning, etc. And no one finished their meal, we all took 1-2 bites and trashed it including the cocktails!

The restaurant was enjoyable and the food was quite good. We had an entree that came partially under cooked and the restaurant was quick to bring another entree in its place.

* ALERT * Gratuity is Included here* Even if it is 2 People *

It was our first time here at Deseo Tapas, the outside eating was nice and food was good HOWEVER the service was very poor. Our waitress only took our order and never came back. We were trying to get her attention multiple times and she never noticed because she was too busy on her phone. To make things worst, we asked for our check to another waiter because our waitress never check back in with us. Attached is a copy of the check where this Resturant “Deseo Tapas” actually Includes the gratuity on the bill EVEN though we were ONLY 2 people. Not only it was not printed on the menu, as it should, but the server didn’t even bother to her job. I processed to ask for the Manager, and guess what? Another waiter came to our table to represent to manager
Because the Manager didn’t want to come out to speak to us.

I go out to restaurant ALL the time and even worked in the past in this industry and the Gratuity LEGALLY should be included if it is a Party of 6 and up........ The owner should be more involved On how his/ her Restaurant is being run.

I probably will not visit this restaurant again. We called to see what the wait time was and got an error message from their phone company, even trying to call from two separate phones. Luckily, I was able to make a reservation on the open door app which was convenient. We got seated maybe 10 mins after our reservation, which wasn’t a big deal, but the service was the major disappointment of this visit. the first thing that i noticed was that the music was extremely loud for such a small area. the server, whose name i only learned when i received the receipt, came to take our order after another ten minutes. By the time he came to our table, we were ready to order our food. When we stated that we wanted the shrimp special, he said that it was the most popular item on the menu, so it was going to take a very very long time to come out.So he suggested that we order something else along with the shrimp, so it would come out first. I thought it was odd that he even told us our food was going to take a long time, how long can seafood take to cook? anyways, we both ordered the empanadas. surprisingly, the shrimp came out first, and cold. we finished our shrimp specials, and still no sign of the empanadas. our server literally came over to our table and asked us verbatim if we were waiting for something. we reminded him about the empanadas and asked for another water. he brought the empanadas out that were extremely cold. he didn’t bring our water out for another few minutes. he seemed pretty overwhelmed. i’m sure the experience would’ve been better if my food was warm.
