Love the ambiance! Best service & location ever :) the roof opened up so we felt like we were sitting in a courtyard & they were able to close it when it got cold. The top floor had a nice cocktail area with fire pits. the food was pretty good too

Loud loud music is not energetic. I’ll come back once more to bring my son from LA but the blasting music is great for a nightclub but not for dining.

Super cool environment! A little club like. Still have some glitches to work out. Kind of a bougie crowd with lots of entitlement on certain nights. Shocking the service was just kind of mediocre for a Harwood restaurant. Some of the shared plates were tasty, and some not so much. Peruvian-style nice Change to all the Tex-Mex that’s out there.

Our second trip there....1st trip we ordered one of everything on the menú, which made the second trip more difficult. There was no way we could eat that much again, but deciding what was best to get this trip was very difficult....as you can’t go wrong with anything. Definitely mix and match and eat in a family style when you go so you appreciate all they have to offer. Will be back again and again!

This was my first time going to Te Deseo and let me say it was an AMAZING experience. My date even enjoyed herself. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was so enjoyable. I will definitely be back. This place is a must tell all. I just couldn’t stop rambling about the place once I left. Everything about this place was awesome. I wish I could remember my waiter because she was the absolute best.

Thanks you guys for the most amazing time I’ve had in a long time at an upscale restaurant.

I would recommend mostly for the atmosphere. Beautiful space but service not great and food not as good as we had hoped. We were 4 people and we wanted to share appetizers....the server recommended the same dish to both couples (we could not hear what he recommended to the people across from us, it was that loud!) so our appetizers were all the same dish. They also rushed the food to us so we were out in an hour. We were also having cocktails and wanted to dine, instead we were served a lot of the same FAST FOOD.

It was extremely loud and dark inside. Food was excellent. We sat for 15 minutes before I had to notify the Hostess that we had not been acknowledged yet. After that the service was great. Would definitely recommend the restaurant. It has a very unique atmosphere.

Made an online reservation for 3:00 pm on a Sunday before a concert. Arrived and the hostess could not find our reservation on her computer, even though we showed her it on our phone.

She immediately pointed out that the kitchen was closing until 5;00 pm, but she would have them stay open and we could order brunch, but not dinner menu. I guess they don't serve the dinner menu until 5. We ordered some brunch food, including some recommendations from our server. The french toast was cold. When we asked the server about it he said it was not supposed to be hot, just room temperature???

The rest of the food was very average. I think the restaurant should not take a 3:00 reservation if they are not serving food. Don't think we will be back.

Possibly Dallas' best new restaurant of 2019! Food, service, ambiance were all so well done. Specialty cocktails very unique. Interesting mix of flavors, Latin with a Caribbean undertone. Can't wait to return.

We wanted to love it. It was beautiful, but the service was so terrible we ended up not even staying for dinner.
I will say the appetizers were fantastic, but that is the only positive I can give.
