Steakhouse

Voted Best New Restaurants "Class of 13" by New Orleans Magazine. Desi Vega is the restaurateur of Desi Vega's Steakhouse and Mr. John's Steakhouse. Both restaurants are consistently outstanding and locals' favorite place to "see and be seen." Desi grew up in the restaurant business and was groomed by Ella Brennan at Commander's Palace, Ruth Fertel of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and Emeril Lagasse. His attention to detail and commitment to excellence makes for a truly memorable dining experience. Our USDA Prime steaks are carefully selected, hand-cut and aged for tenderness, then seared to perfection and served on a sizzling plate. The Who Dat Shrimp appetizer and Andouille-crawfish Mac & Cheese are favorite dishes of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans players. We hope you'll visit to see for yourself!!

In Europe and basically all over the world I like to go to excellent restaurants (Michelin one or two star restaurants) . So over time I have build up some “gastronomic experience “ Well this time my experience at Desi Vega was exceptionally unpleasant. I had this kind of negative experience only once before in my life and I am 50 now…..so let me tell you my gastronomic experience at Desi Vega! At our arrival we were seated immediately after preparing our table. Behind us was a large group ( 20-30 persons) eating. After 10 minutes another group of at least 30 persons joined them although there were no tables available to seat them. The whole space transformed in a very noisy bar with a lot of coming of going of guests. With more alcohol , more noise. I made a first remark to the waitress and she didn’t seem to alnowledge my remarks and non-verbally she showed a kind of disinterest. After 15 min a manager came to ask me if all was fine and I repeated my remark and asked him for a quieter table which he refused. Another 10 minutes later another manager (Diego) came ask me the same question????? I told him basically the same and very quickly he wanted to end the conversation by apologising about the situation. Diego walked away and at the same moment he showed to his colleague manager in a non-verbal way ( turning his eyes) his irritation and he clearly thought I was a very annoying guy from Europe make some problems about nothing. So another time I stepped to them and I explained them that his behaviour was unacceptable and unprofessional. Again there were dismissive. So my evening with my daughter was spoiled and this for more then 230$. I refused to tip and even then it seemed they were not understanding my refusal to tip as there were all standing together at the wellcome desk discussing my action . And by the way they have 3 managers for one restaurant???!!!!! I am impressed as they were completely useless.

Children were present and occasionally screamed a lot. Also, someone at the hotel’s dog got away from them and entered the business while I was eating. That is unacceptable at a fine dining place. Other than that the service and food were absolutely fantastic!

We were in this weekend for Jazz Fest, and of course without a doubt we had to go to Desi’s for a steak. What can I say, there is no better. Yes yes, New Orleans is a culinary dream, but there’s no way we would come without one night here. It is absolutely perfection. Also, a big thank you to our waiter Dennis. As luck would have it, for some reason he always seems to be our guy….and if you are lucky enough to get him….well then you’ve had the perfect dining experience. Thanks Dennis, and thank you Desi for always being the best !!!!

I tried the bacon wrapped shrimp - the waitress informed me I would not taste the crab in the sauce (I don't like crab) and she was 100% correct. It did not disappoint!!! I will visit again should I ever be back in New Orleans.

Appetizers were great - highly recommended the fried green tomatoes and if they offer a scallop dish - get it! Jasmine and Hope provided excellent service. We’ll definitely be back!

We shared a bone in rib eye and it was very good, perfectly cooked. They even have good wines by the bottle in the $65 range which makes this place even more affordable. The staff was on top of it, almost too much at times, but knoweth and honest. The salads, I got the spinach salad very good.
