Excellent food and awesome service as always. Birthday dinner.
Everything was going great until the building fire alarm went off. Staff indicated it happens often.
First time @ Desi Vega's and it was fabulous. Petite steak was delish:)
Our Happy Hour server Brandon was great our two servers Darryl & Lalal were on it my wifes Birthday was EXCELLENT because of our vist.
This Desi's is fantastic, easy parking, lots of windows and plenty elbow room. The service and food are beyond wonderful. Will return many times.
Birthday. James was an excellent server and very attentive to our special occasion. Food was perfection. Highly recommend Desi Vega’s!!
Great! Wasn’t expecting the experience!
Professional service and excellent food
We had a table of 21 for our friends anniversary and everyone enjoyed the food and service. 15 of them never been there before
Service was great but the food not so much.. The Steak tasted like I was eating a stick of butter.. The Lobster was so over cooked it was rubbery and not edible.. Dinner for two was not worth $220..
Amazing service and really good food. Would definitely recommend!!
Amazing service, excellent food, delicious cocktails! 10 out of 10 will be back again!
We have been to Desi Vega’s aeveral times for special
Occasions and have always been pleased.
The food was great!
Crabmeat au gratin, Salad Louie, Trout Almandine, filet.
Great service. Amanda & Greg were the best!
Best calamari ever. Best wedge salad ever. Best sea bass ever! Now I want to try everything on the menu!
Fish was not really fresh. Service was wonderful and fish was replaced when told it didn’t taste fresh.
Food was good.Service was good.Nice lunch.
Will definitely recommend to friends.
The welcome meatball was very tasty.
Steak was well sized, great cut, top notch.
Wife and I went on a Sunday night. Service was impeccable. Amanda was our server, very attentive and knowledgeable, without lingering too long. We each received an amuse-bouche of a meatball when we first sat down and then another single shrimp remoulade after our first course, because they were out of the bitters needed to make my Sazerac (had a delicious old fashioned instead).
1st Course: Crab Cake- very good, big enough to split and came with a Chile aioli
2nd course: Caesar salad and soup of the day. Salad was big enough to split, but was a little over dressed. Flavor was on point though. SOD was a mushroom and Crab bisque that my wife thoroughly enjoyed.
3rd course: Ribeye, Filet, AuGratin Potatoes and Brie-Debris Mac n cheese. Ribeye was outstanding. Ordered Med Rare with a hard sear and well seasoned. It came out perfect. Filet was ordered medium, but came out rare. It was quickly fixed by the kitchen and brought out by the manager. Au Gratin Potatoes were good, but nothing spectacular. The Mac N Cheese, was delicious, but VERY rich! (note: it has truffle oil too)
Desert: Cheesecake that was comped for our "anniversary"
Overall great experience. Convenient location with ample parking. It was on par, if not better than the "related" restaurants in the Desi Vega Family, including Mr. Johns.
I have been here before and have had a much better than this visit. The waiter was more focused on the other two tables; however, the assistant waiter did an excellent job. Our reservation was for 9:30 and everything was rushed when we were ordering. Lesson learned never book the last reservation available before closing. My steak was okay, I have had better from this restaurant before.
For outstanding seafood and steaks, Desi Vega’s is a great choice! Ordinarily, I would not order seafood in a steakhouse. The seafood dishes are some of the best in the metro New Orleans area. The crab and mushroom bisque, jumbo lump crabmeat ravigote, and pan seared sea bass were delicious. As always, the steaks are cooked to perfection and seasoned appropriately. The atmosphere is appropriate for those special occasions to a casual dinner with friends. Desi Vega’s always exceeds our expectations.
I always enjoy going to Desi. Great place and great staff.
Very good experience! Highly recommend the ribeye and Mac and cheese.
We ordered prime fillet Which is one of the best steaks ever. We ordered the Alaskan King crab which were tasty but they didn’t crack them well enough.
Service was spotty at best. Server got a 9 top right in front of us. He spent his every moment trying to help them and not us. We had to hail food delivery helpers and busers to get items overlooked.
My Med rare + filet was barely Rare +. The tomato side had no seasoning and were undercooked. My partners lobster was very small 4oz's at best. Overall not a pleasant experience.
It was the best steak I have every had. Everything is a 5☆☆☆☆☆ restaurant.
Food was delicious, Service was excellent, would highly recommend this place
Exceptional dining experience!
Best service and delicious food. Highly recommend!
The service is impeccable. The wait staff is very attentive and you can tell there is a focus on service. Our water glasses were continually refilled. They brought us a sample meatball to try and warm bread when we sat down. The entire staff worked together to make sure all tables were taken care of.
My friend and I went there for dinner. We had calamari and fried green tomatoes as appetizers. The calamari was just okay. The breading was too thick on it. The fried green tomatoes were excellent. A light crispy coating perfectly matched the thick cut tomatoes. Simply seasoned and not overly fried, they were the star of the evening. Our drinks were excellent.
My friend thoroughly enjoyed her dinner. She had the fish of the day. It was a generous size. It was fried and the crust was crispy. I had the scallops and they were served in a dark gravy-type sauce. The sauce was too heavy and too salty for the scallops and completely decimated the delicateness of the scallops. The scallops were seared perfectly and the accompanying risotto was creamy and delicious. The entrée did not need that heavy, overly salted gravy. It completely ruined the dish.
I would go back but I would try something different and I would make sure to ask about the accompanying sauces before I ordered. I would still recommend the restaurant.
I had the 22oz bone in rib-eye, it was under seasoned and over cooked. My wife had scallops and she said they were delicious. My daughters both had filets and they were cooked appropriately but also under seasoned. The creamed spinach was so bland it was inedible. Desserts were excellent. Service was also excellent.
Date night, very nice evening
Celebrated 35th Anniversary! Excellent service and great food!
Great atmosphere and experience to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I truly enjoyed myself and the food was excellent. This may be a new favorite!
This place never disappoints me and my fiancé.
Always a great experience at Desi Vega's - Heritage Plaza. Last night was exceptional.
The soup - Shrimp Alfredo - was soooo delicious! Hope that becomes a regular menu offering. Several at our table got this and loved it. Crab Cakes are amazing as always - I now believe they are the reason I come to DV's! We all had steaks as well - so satisfying.
We enjoyed cocktails & desserts ... Servers were attentive and promptly responded to our needs ... it was a full, long night enjoying the company of dear friends .. when it comes to venue, Desi Vega's hit it out of the park.
Scallops were perfectly cooked. Filet mignon came on a very hot sizzling plate and was exactly the right internal temperature. Service was perfect. Wine prices were very modestly priced. ie The Prisoner was $75 vs $44 at the store.
Service was excellent. The wait staff was knowledgeable of the menu items. It was a typical steakhouse nothing too outstanding.
Amazing experience, the waiters were attentive, the food and beverages were ready extremely quick. We had the Oyster Rockafella appetizer
