    We love Desi’s!! This time, we got the shrimp remoulade for an appetizer. It was delicious & beautifully presented. I ordered the gulf fish (speckled trout) with jumbo lump crab meat. My boyfriend ordered the filet medium rare & it melted in your mouth. We always love coming to Desi Vega’s!

    At our request, they moved us to the back room nor a business discussion. Significant less crowded and more quiet there.

    We were excited for the Desi Bucket, and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent. My only complaint is that a bottle of Caymus was $60 more than it was at Ruth's Chris.
