We went here the other night to enjoy the 3-course fixed price menu -- and enjoy it we did! I was expecting a big resort factory-style meal, but every morsel of food that we received tasted carefully planned out and expertly executed. In order or increasing impressiveness, I'd recommend the atmosphere (very nice), the service (very, very good) and the... More

Was staying at the Villas so walked over to the hotel and the restaurant. The lounge is known for their muddled drinks, and they deliver. Brittany and Jeremy can make any and all types of Mojitos with style and grace, even non alcoholic ones! We then went for the rap and were blown away by the tastes, textures, and presentations....

My wife and I went to Deseo for a night out while in Scottsdale. The decor is unique as is the restaurant layout. Bar - the bar is very intimate and very nice. You can either get your standard drinks or try something new like Latin American specialty cocktails. We tried the cocktails and were not disappointed. Atmosphere - very... More

The food is amazing. We ate at this restaurant 4 times during our 1 week stay. We just couldn't get enough!

I'm not a big fan of resort dining but this place breaks the mold. There was nothing bland about our meal - everything flavorful, some things spicy hot. Billed as "Nuevo Latino" there was a decided Mexico City flair to dinner. I thought the squash filled quesadilla appetizer was outstanding. Entree's (I had beef, she had seafood) were flawless. Desserts... More

I loved the chef's experience. About 8 course dinner, created in front of you with a very knowlegable chef, along with wine parings. Specatacular food, wine and very creative dessert! Worth every dime, NOT for children.

Took a muddling class in the deseo bar while there. The bartender was great and we learned how to make the perfect mojito! We had the best truffled popcorn I've ever had, the drinks were great, the wygu tartar and shrimp apps were amazing. Great ambience.

Tried this restaurant with a groupon, three courses. The ceviche was great for an appetizer, the appetizer tacos not so good. The skirt steak and mahi mahi were wonderful. Didn't care for the chocolate dessert. Service average but friendly. Love the bars onsite at the Westin for an after dinner drink.

We are local, but spent the night at the hotel before our daughter was born, dinner starts at 6, the starters were unique and very satisfying. We had the Kobe beef and half chicken. I can't wait to go back to try desserts. They had an extensive wine menu and the rolls provided were hot and delish. I mention the... More

My wife and I recently visited Deseo during our Las Vegas and Scottsdale trip, and out of the twelve or so restaurants we tried this one was by far the best. We had reservations for a Friday night, but the restaurant was only half full (inside) at best. Outside it looked like a full house, but as yet I just... More
