Always consistent and simply outstanding
Second occasion with Kevin as our tour guide. Kevin is most competent and a reason to return.
In fact next visit we will ask for Kevin and a table next to the window facing Lafayette Park
Great experience Dennis. .........................
We celebrated our anniversary there. Other than being seated in the sun which I hate and not being offered another table, our experience was amazing. Dennis took exellent care of us, and the sun eventually went down which made it more pleasant.
Unfortunately our extraordinarily poor service outweighed the quality of the food, which was actually quite good.
We had two waiters that identified themselves for our party of eight. I’m unsure if they failed to communicate with other, but the result was we had to ask for basic items - cocktails and bread, items ordered were not served, and when a specific item was requested - butter for a baked potato - again, very basic - I had to leave the table 10 minutes after the request to find a manager to complain. After complaining about the poor service we had encountered over the last two hours, they did not seem interested in hearing about the issues. I, nor the rest of my party will never return.
Absolutely amazing. Every single bite was delicious!
Great food. Service was incredible. The Manager makes his presence known and has a sense of humor. The wait staff is top notch. Will definitely return!
Everything was great except there is a mildew odor when you first walk in the building, it could be the smell of the carpet in the hotel lobby.
Desi Vega’s is always a must do for each trip my family takes to New Orleans.
Voo Doo Shrimp ~ Stuffed Artichoke ~ The Black and Gold Filet are all my Favorites ~ also the Boudin Shrimp is just WOW!
The amazing atmosphere and excellent service you receive makes dining here even more special.
The Chefs here are definitely a cut above the rest in NOLA...
We eat out 5 times a week, and we love Desi's. Amazing steak & seafood in the heart of upscale downtown Nola.
Weeknight dinner. Service fantastic. Appetizer Who Dat Shrimp was the best I’ve had. French Onion soup was fantastic. Bone in Filet ordered Medium Rare came rare no problem for me. Hubby’s Cowboy Ribeye ordered Medium Rare came Medium Well - disappointing! Waiter did not come to check preparedness of steaks so he suffered through it. Would go back for drinks and apps but not the steaks.
I hosted a bachelorette party and Victoria was an excellent server.
The Who dat Shrimp were delicious!
The service was great! The steaks were prepared well and the wine list was very good
Best steak in the city! Everything we ate was outstanding!
I gifted a date night to my In Laws and they have raved about their experience for the past two days!
Desi Vega's was outstanding. The food was some of the best you'll find anywhere. The steaks were the highest quality and the sizzling plate and butter topping is the perfect touch. This place is a must visit in New Orleans. Easily a Top 5 restaurant in the Big Easy.
Everything was wonderful, as usual! I made a reservation online for 6, but had a last minute add-on so I called Addie and she gladly made the change. Lance and the rest of the wait staff was wonderful and my granddaughters loved the spaghetti!!
Horrible! The music was so ridiculously loud!
Exceptional! What a great evening! The steaks were simple perfection, waite staff wonderful and loved every aspect of our meal. Our waiter and his team made our evening very special, well attended, friendly and great suggestions. Their suggestions of what was freshest and different was very helpful. Our table overlooked Lafayette Square and the nightime lighting was an exceptional view to have while dining. Awesome!
Probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten!! I will be visiting again!!
Attending dinner at a steakhouse I didn’t think my steak could be sent out of the kitchen undercooked twice.
Prior to our meal coming out we waited 45 minutes, at which point the waiter came by and asked us about dessert. When we informed him that we still hadn’t eaten, he ran off to retrieve the food. Needless to say, my husband finished his entire meal before I had my steak brought back for the 3rd time with my asparagus and crab burned to a mush along with a tough and overlooked filet.
The manager gave us dessert at no charge, but I still left without dinner...
This is a popular and energetic place. Despite the number of people they always deliver a great meal. Appetizers with shrimp are always good. great wedge salad. Fantastic turtle soup. Of course the steaks are very good and come out very hot as you would expect. The lamb is also very good and has a flaming sauce. Good crab and fish dishes as well. good wine list
The place was so noisy. No accoustics. The steak was fabulous and the service including the valet was great!
The food was great, the service was great. I feel like I was trapped in my dad’s business luncheon. If you like to be in stiff environments this is your place. I prefer to enjoy great food in a more laid back environment.
We had a great experience during our dinner. Service was excellent 👍🏻👍🏻
This was a great restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The food was excellent and the ambiance was elegant and classy. We very much enjoyed our dinner here!
Hubby and I are always elated when dine here . Kevin was amazing . The Hostess Abby is a Diamond in the Ruff . Management is always the best . Desi Vega Staff , Thank you for your passion .
One of our best experiences to date in Nola. Porterhouse was perfect, twice baked crawfish stuffed potatoes should be an every day menu item. Who dat shrimp were amazing. Loved the energy of the restaurant. Wouldn’t change a thing. Service was impeccable.
This is our favorite place to eat in New Orleans! The service is always wonderful. The food is top notch!
Attention to detail. Great wait staff. Attentive overall staff. Great bartender. Great service. Great food.
Food Awesome. Services was great. Lance did a wonderful job.
Great food, have never had a bad experience and use them for my Business Meeting where I need to make sure it is a good environment with great atmosphere. Desi Vegas has never let me down, I can always ensure it makes the right impression during an important business meal.
I loved my experience here except it was a bit too loud and I could barely have a conversation with my husband but overall everything was good!!!!!
This is THE BEST restaurant hands down that I have eaten at. GREAT food, great atmosphere. I'll be back.
Had an early reservation and service was excellent with wait staff being very attentive and personal. Bone in Rib-eye was excellent and cook to a perfect medium rare. My only complaint was that the crab cake, which came served on a sizzling plate with butter which was great, was more Maryland style and a little off on flavor. Overall, a wonderful evening.
We went for a date night spending a few nights in the Quarter for a wedding. We were greeted at the door by a smiling hostess and seated quickly. Dennis our server was on point. You can ask for him at dinner. He kept a watchful eye and didn’t crowd us. We started with cocktails and split a salad as an appetizer. Great fried oysters, blue cheese and bacon. Another cocktail then a ribeye for me and a filet for her.cooked medium perfect. Sides of Mac and cheese and scalloped potatoes. Another cocktail then red velvet cake for desert. Great service and a wonderful experience
The service was excellent and the food was very good. Unfortunately though I had asked for and called to confirm a quiet romantic table, we were seated in a room with a party of 20 and another of 7 and they were both very loud. There was another room in the restaurant that was away from this one but we weren’t sat there. The person seating us completely dropped the ball. I explained to the server and she completely understood and sent over the manager who apologized and gave us complimentary desserts. While that was a nice gesture it didn’t really make up for what was supposed to be a special evening. In a city like New Orleans which has so many choices you would be better off going elsewhere. There are better options.
food was great as was the service. The wine we had was very good, but overall the wines were marked up too high above the prices seen in wine stores and groceries. I expect to pay above those prices but at a reasonable rate .
I keep getting disappointed by this place. I got the filet sandwich for lunch and half of the sandwich was all fatty pieces that I couldn’t even chew. The fries were soggy and the onion rings (I only got because it wasn’t clear the sandwiches came with fries) were not fried long enough. This place is hit or miss.
