Exceptional food and service. Accompanied by extravagant ambiance!
Great Service from Nicole and Kamryn.
Everything was great and the service was excellent
Great food, very good service.
Only down side parking was a little wierd
Took our niece and her family who were in town for the holiday. Everyone enjoyed everything from appetizer to dessert! Great experience all around!
The location has a different menu than the downtown location and we had our hearts set on the lamb chops.
Service was great, but the food was not. The escargot was tasty, the lobster bisque was salty and arrived barely warm, the ribeye had almost no marbling nor flavor (but it was cooked to a perfect medium rare), and the lobster was waaaay overcooked. It was too pricey for what we got. Service was attentive and fast and the servers were fun. The kitchen just needs work.
I was our first time there. Food, and service was amazing
well worth it - everything we had was D'licious :)
The food is always good, but excellent tonight. Lobster bisque was wonderful. Steaks and crabmeat appetizers very good. Sides of cream spinach and Mac and cheese always good. The service is better than any of the famous restaurants in New Orleans. Don't go down town. Come here where the food is great, the service is the best and they are glad you came. Not so downtown.
Service and steaks were impeccable!
Great food and service. Looking forward to our next visit!
The best restaurant in Jefferson and arguably in the top 5 in the metro area. Safe convenient parking. The service and food are perfect. Managers always attentive to each customer
Great menu and food is always right on the mark.
AMAZING SERVICE (from the host, to the woman who filled our waters, especially our waitress!) everyone we came into contact with was EXTREMELY friendly. Our waitress was amazing! super helpful & offered mouthwatering recommendations! Hands down the BEST meal I’ve ever eaten out.. maybe eaten ever. Filet mignon melted in my mouth!! Will be back, more than once! Thank you Desi Vegas for an AMAZING experience with an UNFORGETTABLE dinner!!
Great food and service. Waiters were awesome. Love this place!
Our second dining experience here, celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary. Absolutely enjoyed it !
Did not enjoy
The experience at Desi Vega's Seafood and Steaks was excellent. All the staff wished us a Happy Anniversary and the food was great!
All was GREAT food and service was outstanding and will return soon
Waiters were very attentive and friendly .
The food was delicious!
The ambiance made a great dinner a very special night to remember!
It was great as it always is.
Ambiance, Food, Servers, everything was amazing!! We had steak, sea bass, King Crab. We had several people check our table the entire time to make sure we had everything we needed. This was my first time there, and I most definitely will be back!
Unfortunately very disappointed- first time at Desi Vega's Metairie for my girlfriend's birthday. We were sat without menus, didn't receive them for about 15 min after asking twice. Place was busy but our service was off almost as if we were an afterthought. Had two steaks, sides and a bottle of wine which was half off on Tuesdays. Has to continuously salt everything because, although the right temp, everything was rather bland. We were not checked on at all until we were just about finished. Asked for the bill and the wine was charged full price (not surprising given the service). This was credited for the half off and when I paid the server asked "are you sure you don't want your dessert- it's free?" This was not mentioned until after the bill was paid. We we were asked three times what special occasion it was (girlfriend's birthday) but this was really not acknowledged. We were not asking for special treatment or anything free- normal service at what we assumed was a high end restaurant (based on price and reputation) would have been fine. Unfortunately it was not and I highly doubt we will return when there are other steakhouses in this city which are superior in food and service- at least based on my experience.
Excellent as always.
Great food! Great service! Cant wait to go back!!
Everything was wonderful, HOWEVER, When I made the reservation I had noted that this was an anniversary celebration .Other patrons around us were acknowledged about their anniversary dinner. That was the only disappointing remark for the evening.
Great food. Great service. Tuna appetizer & Butternut Squash Soup were outstanding as was Steak with Oscar added!!
We really enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent from the minute we sat down to when we left. The food was great as usual. The butternut squash with Tasso is a new favorite of mine. The scallops with risotto and their meatballs are other favorites. We will be back.
Good food and choices. Only knock for the evening’s food was the steaks. Temperature correct, but outside over-charred. Nice surprise with a shrimp tail remoulade pre-app. Pricing is high, but expected. The meatball appetizers are the bomb! I need that sauce for my pasta. Get the debris mac ‘n’ cheese as a side.
They never fail to deliver in every way. They are the best!
Desi's is a nice place. Always a nice vibe going on. Food is good but the atmosphere is better.
We didn’t realize that the menu for this location was totally different from the one in New Orleans so we were a little disappointed. We waited a long time for service but the server made up for it in the end. Food was good but the cocktails were fantastic.
The waiter recommended appetizers for the table and we chose the oysters and bar-b-que shrimp. Both were delicious and enough for four people. It was Halloween night and some of the staff were dressed up which was fun. Main entrees were delicious and looking forward to another dinner in the future.
Although the decor and the staff are always pleasant. I felt the food was rather mediocre compared to the location on St Charles St.
Perfection!!! Wonderful way to say goodbye to my 50’s! Service and food was on point! Thank you
First day on the job for the waiter. Which I understand but no steak knife, no water, etc. drinks took 20 minutes but the steak came out 5 minutes after we ordered it.
He told us wine was 1/2 price but then charged us full price.
Someone needed to be looking over him. We won’t go back.
Surprisingly good food - much improved over our last meal. The rib eye and the sea bass were excellent, as was the service. The selection of wines by the glass was also very good. The food was slightly delayed due to a large crowd at another table. Overall, it was a very good meal and an enjoyable evening.
Desi Vega's Seafood and Steaks is simply an outstanding dining experience. The wait staff is professional and service is the same. The presentation of food is done in classy fashion. The product is as good as, if not the very best steak product to be found anywhere in south Louisiana.
Very good service and food ! Always on point👌
My daughter’s birthday! Staff and service, food was wonderful! We will be back for sure!!
