Great food great staff and great atmosphere
We had a fabulous dinner! I have eaten lots of great places and this is in to top 3!
Great steaks. Good view. Nice interior. Overall one of the better steakhouses in city.
We have been to Desi Vega severs Times. Each time we go we are very pleased with the service and the food.
Service is excellent and I have never ordered a dish I haven’t loved.
I strongly recommend Desi Vega to anyone who want to enjoy a very relaxing atmosphere with elegant service and excellent food.
Excellent food served hot and presentation of each was great!
Only negative, a person with serious gearing impairment was part of our group. I requested corner table to improve his comfort level. We could have have been switched to a corner table , which was reserved but not occupied until much later. This was denied to us by the hostess.
We wait a Long time for the Food
Wir mussten sehr lange aud das Essen warten ( über 45 Min.)
JD and Tom were our service team for my birthday dinner while we were in town. They were fantastic! They were helpful but not infringing on our time. The food was fantastic and the meal was perfectly timed. We hope to stop by again next time we are in town.
The service was wonderful and the food was delicious.
Always a wonderful meal, and not just for steaks. They have great seafood as well. Excellent soups and special salads. Creamed spinach side is very good. The best appetizer remains the shrimp, but last night they had an excellent soft-shell crab. The steaks are still the best in the city. The lamb is another good choice with a flaming sauce. The service is very good and friendly. They have a valet parking service if you are driving which is very nice. Always a fun meal. Beautiful full windows that you can watch the streetcar go by
Steaks were ok. The lamb chops come with lots of alcohol on them so they can light them up at the table. Cool looking but leaves a very strong alcohol taste on the lamb.
Staff wasn’t really interested in waiting on us. We felt like we were intruding while they served the local crowd. Extremely noisy. Unable to have any conversation.
The restaurant was wonderful. Service was absolutely fantastic and friendly, we actually had a great ongoing conversation with our waiters that was a highlight of the night. Food was too both (who doesn't like prime beef?) - though the cowboy steak was somewhat over done in the eye, the cap and bone were cooked perfectly. It's the nature of the cut I guess. Also. Free meatball, amazing. Awesome little surprise.
Perfection! I took clients to lunch and our meal was wonderful. Service is always impeccable too. The turtle soup was an excellent start. We all ordered the steak special of the day which was a NY strip cooked to perfection, sliced and topped with lump crab meat and a side of bearnaise sauce!!!!! OMG, the steak melted in your mouth, crab was delicious and the bearnaise added the right touch. Didn't have time for desert, but this is an exceptional place to have lunch!
Great Steaks , Service and Atmosphere. A true New Orleans Steak house.
Food and Service was outstanding. It was however very expensive.
Great place, EXCELLENT food, & Amazing Customer Service!!!!
Food and service is always great I’ve been there many times a favorite place
I’ve been coming here for years, and it never disappoints. From the check in to the check out, it’s first class all the way. The meal is second to none, and you can almost taste the steak as it goes by you on its way to another table (unfortunately). The wait staff is on top of every need, and Desi, seems to always be there, and if he can’t say “hello”, is always giving a cordial wave. I recommend Desi Vega’s highly !!!
We loved our meal. I had lobster tails and my husband had lamb chops. Could not have been better.
If you’re a tourist, make sure to tell them dining room only as they will put you in the bar area which is similar to being in a sports bar , not a fine dining experience . Food was good but I would never go back because I was treated with a very curt manner upon entering and it only went down hill from there . The noise level was well beyond energetic and pretty sad to be charging over $125/ person for such a pathetic environment . Desi, you can do better !!!
Food was an excellent! Appreciated that everyone’s selection came out together and served hot! My husband and our guest raves about the Wagyu steaks! I was very impressed with the portion sizes of everything we ordered. Wine menu had several great selections and the service was impeccable. Very nice establishment. Only recommendation I would offer is to have a purse stand or bench for ladies at the table.
Best steak we ever had! Ambiance is nice although we went to dinner to celebrate our anniversary and there were several large tables of very loud people, so we had a hard time talking. They might want to utilize the other side of the restaurant to accommodate large, noisy groups. We definately reccomend it for the food.
Birthday celebration. Everything was amazing! Great service and the food was cooked to perfection! Thank you for the perfect night!
Amazing food, fun atmosphere and impressive service.
The service and food was excellent. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves. We will make another reservation soon.
Great food menu and service.
One of my favorite places to dine in the world! From the staff to the Steaks everything was perfect! Met the owner Desi and His Family! Delightful People! Looking forward to my next visit already! Thanks Desi!
Fantastic service. Kevin our waiter and Trevor is assistant were unbelievable. Steve and Andrew in the bar were great too!!
Really a very plesant surprise, food was outstanding, great service and an intimate, elegant and quiet ambiance
Great dinner and fun wait staff
Always great experience
What a great restaurant! It's about a $7 ride over from the French Quarter. The restaurant was very welcoming, very friendly. We had a nice table in the corner (I enjoy that as I like to look out over the room) and it can be a very romantic place. Service was great. And the food1 I am a steak lover and I've had it everywhere from Boston to San Francisco to Chicago to London. This (and maybe the one in Chicago) was the gold standard. I got the cowboy ribeye. Not only was it tender and buttery it had a just-enough-salt taste. Man, it was great. My wife had a filet mignon that my wife rated 10 out of 10. Drink-wise we had a bottle of sparkling water and a couple of glasses of merlot. As to side dishes, we shared lyonnaise potatoes and creamed spinach, both excellent. For dessert, we had a red velvet cake with ice cream. Fantastic. At $191 pre-tip, it's a big splurge. But if we're back in the Big Easy, we will be returning for sure.
It was just a bad day for steak. I had a bad cut of rideye ,it was dry and not tender at all. The staff was fine. And very nice. I go there because I remember my first steak from there. It was the best I have ever had.
One of our go-to restaurants in New Orleans. Always get a great steak, great atmosphere for dinner conversation, and great staff.
Excellent - as always. Best steak in NOLA!!
We were in New Orleans in vacation and saw a commercial for this restaurant. We decided to give it a try and we were no disappointed. We were early and seated immediately- there was lots of room between tables - the table next to ours was loud but once they left it was better. Our appetizers were amazing the fried green tomatoes with crab meat were delicious- my sisters filet flat bread was equally delicious- we had salads both unique and tasty. Our deserts were exquisite my red velvet cake is something I’ll dream about- a unique rendition of red velvet- every bite of this dense amazing dessert was Heavenly. My sisters Oreo cheese cake was equally amazing - I’ll return to New Orleans just for this cheesecake. Our wait staff were just fabulous- so attentive and helpful- every suggestion was on point . We were leaving the next day and asked if the chef would make us a meatball po- boy ( not on the dinner menu) it was on the lunch menu . Well he did - and we took it to go.... OMG THE BEST MEAT BALLS IN THE WORLD. . The bread - sauce - cheese and meatballs all combined are absolute magic. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere very classy. The drinks were good too. I give them 6 stars out of 5 stars . This place is a true gem . The owner trained with the best in New Orleans - then opened a great restaurant with his own unique style and tastes. My only suggestion is to put Pecan Pie on your menu. I couldn’t find one restaurant with pecan pie. My advice is to go there and enjoy some of the best food in New Orleans- BRAVO
Great lunch meeting place and excellent food for the value.
We had a great dinner there. Bone in ribeye and NY strip was fantastic!! Mix drinks were on point. Dennis was an awesome server. We had a great experience!!
