Probably the worst meal I’ve ever had
Everything was frozen and tasted disgusting
No taste at all
Frozen oysters!!!🤯🤯🤯
I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone
And WAY TOO OVERPRICED

The service was great. Amanda, our server, was very attentive, warm, and inviting. Overall, the food was good. The barbecue shrimp was ok but not what was expected, so was the risotto. Drinks were great. I would return and recommend to others.

We love to go to Desi Vegas. The food is always great. Seafood very fresh and tasty. Steaks are very good. We love the creamed spinach and fried oysters rockefeller. The service is always the best in the city. Good parking. Come here in Jefferson parish for a great meal, and avoid Orleans

I enjoyed my steak so much. The filet was moist, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. However I had the salad Louie and my husband had the blue cheese wedge, both were disappointing. The wedge barely had any dressing or bacon and the Louie was deconstructed, mainly dry lettuce, and piled onto a small plate. It was impossible to eat a bite without the salad spilling onto the table. The noise level was obnoxious! Also I expected a steakhouse with their prices to have a dress code. It was a Saturday night and they seated people wearing shorts and t shirts. The ambiance was ruined.
