Karin and Ricky add to the experience - excellent service staff but, really they are all good and attentive. Food is consistently good - doesn't matter what we order, although it is generally steaks. Little spicy on the egg rolls this time but still yummy. Will continue to be a go to spot for us.

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.

Beautiful restaurant with underwhelming food. Don’t get the Brussels or S’mores dessert.
Steak was good not great and fish wash way over salted.

My husband and I had a very warm welcome from our server, Stephanie. I had the filet and my husband had the Triple Tail fish special complemented with french onion and turtle soup. The food was delicious and the service was oustanding. We split the flaming smores for dessert and had a wonderful evening.

Service and wait staff were great. Maybe I just received a sub-par New York Strip. It was okay but not very well prepared. It was closer to rare but ordered medium. Not quite Prime as I have come to expect from Desi Vega's and Mr. John's.
We have enjoyed previous dining experiences at Desi Vega's. This time it was off.
We will return to Desi Vega's and Mr. John's(every visit has been great) but a little bit of skepticism.
Sorry I could not be more complimentary but I expect you want an honest review, warts and all.

Service was a little slow in the beginning as it took a while for our drink order to be taken. Our waitress was very kind, apologized for the delay (without us even mentioning it), and service was spot on afterwards. It seemed there were quite a few reservations all starting at 7:15, and I think this is what May have caused the delay. Food was fantastic- best steak I’ve ever eaten. Price was decent- I’ve paid more in Disney World for much less quality and ok service. We will definitely be back.

Excellent food and service. Could improve on the little things, e.g., it was my wife’s birthday and they didn’t even recognize it in the simplest way. Not a deal breaker, but certainly would have made this experience superior.

Everything was great, but you would expect that when you make reservations, and spend 250.00 on Dinner, that when you walk in to the Restaurant your table would be ready and available. Our table was not ready and we had to return to the Lobby after we walked to the table to be seated. So that was a little embarrassing being on a first time date but we got through it. The food was on time and very good.

Get together with friends of whom all enjoyed the experience and had never been before! We are partial to Karen and Ricky but all of the staff there is wonderful and attentive . We have never had a bad meal but we certainly do recommend that you try the appetizer eggrolls and the tuna and all of the desserts so beautiful and lovely and yummy. Steak? Seriously, you can’t go wrong! I think the bartender can meet your needs too but I only say that because we’ve never ordered anything that they haven’t done an excellent job with!
