Cocktails were terrible and had to be sent back. Food is mediocre and not worth the cost. The service and ambiance is great, but not worth the $400 spent. Too many other fine dining places to eat and enjoy meal and drinks and worth the money spent. Way overhyped.

My husband and I went here for his birthday and it was absolutely amazing. The Who dat shrimp and the crawfish stuffed double baked potato are a must!!! Don’t skip out on dessert because it’s worth the treat! Definitely will be back with friends and family!

Dined at Desi Vegas last Saturday night and all went well. The service was very good, and the food exceptional. This was about my seventh time at Desi's and each time was consistently pleasant.
One constructive suggestion is to tone down the music in the dining room. It distracts from the ambiance. It could be more like the Sinatra room.

Desi’s never disappoints and this newer location is Covington is a great addition to the north shore dining options. The managing partners and general manager all made the rounds to ensure everything was top notch. The food was outstanding with the pork belly appetizer being a nice treat to start things off. Will definitely go again soon.

It's hard to recommend value when the petite filet was very small, probably not even 4 oz. and the rocks charge is just ridiculous . Come on they don't charge for ice when you order a coke or gin& tonic. Can't be completely satisfied with a place that does this.

Most things were very good, but my Margarita was pretty bad and not at all similar to that at other fine dining restaurants.
My steak was top quality and cooked to my satisfaction however it was covered in peppercorn unbeknownst to me. I didn’t see anything about the peppercorn on the menu nor did the waiter indicate that is how it is served. I guess next time I’ll know but I’d rather not learn such things the hard way.

Upon arrival we were informed our reservation had been canceled. I showed the reservation on my phone and we're told they could get me in now (6:12) but there was another reservation for our table at 7:15. We felt in a rush and our main course did not arrive at the table until about 7:05. I ordered fish and it was significantly overcooked.

The manager comped my meal which I thought was very nice of him. The staff was exceedingly helpful and courteous, but we were very disappointed in the dining experience. It was a special occasion being my fiance's birthday.

5th anniversary dinner. older couple which do not get to splurge very much, heard the food was good. service was really good, constant attention. food was very good - as someone who grew up in the business delivering produce to Paul Prudhomme in Commander's kitchen, i think i know good food. steak was exceptional. only downside was that the music was loud and IMO obnoxious. asked the server to lower or change it and was informed 'it's the owner's playlist and they like it'. frankly, if i hadn;t started eating i would have left. will not go back for this reason - for $125 a person meal, if i want the music changed, i should have my wishes honored.

Appetizers and sides were phenomenal, steaks had entirely too much salt on them, my ribeye had as much fat as it did meat. Desserts were extremely overpriced and bland! Decor was a little confusing and the noise from the nightclub was tolerable but distracting. Service was second to none. We will be back as it was our first time to Northshore location.
