One of the best meals we've ever had. Everything was perfect and meticulously presented for an amazing dining experience. Even the bread they brought seemed like it was literally dropped from heaven!

We have dined at Deseo several times in the past and have always enjoyed the food and service. We had a reservation and at the time the place was relatively empty. We were sat a table against the wall that was probably 2x3.5 ft! It was barely bigger than our menus combined. Once we received bread and wine the wait... More

The food you can expect in this place is not only delicious but also most artfully styled. Great experience well worth the money.

The Latin American menu is interesting & varied offering something for everyone. We tried several items- all excellent. From the ceviche menu we tried the "lobster escabeche" and it was delicious, even for a friend who didn't want to try "raw fish." It was pricy at $24, but worth it for a special treat. For our entrée, we chose the... More

We had such a great time sitting at the chefs bar. We got to see the workings of the kitchen. Had amazing ceviche and chef Derek was interactive and engaging. He was knowledgeable and helped us decide what to try. We had 4 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts all of which was incredible! Would definitely recommend!

If you want great views (golf course) great service and most importantly excellent food-try this place. The apps are excellent-try the rock shrimp. as a side the fried plantains are perfect-better than many places I have eaten in Caribbean and in S America. The Flank state is extremely tasty and not at all tough as many flank steaks can be.... More

We enjoyed our dining experience. The service was very good. We tried a variety of appetizers. The presentation and flavors were great. The entrees' flavor combinations were perfect. The Argentinian red wine was a great addition. We also tried a variety of desserts. Superb! Kudos to the Chef!

This was our last evening on vacation in Scottsdale, so we wanted to have a special dinner, and the deseo Restaurant was perfect for this. It is a beautiful and elegant Latin American style restaurant in the beautiful Westin Kierland Hotel. We ordered a shared-plate appetizer and then an entree for 2. We started with the ceviche: Hamachi Tiradito Nikkei,... More

Dined here for a large family gathering. I wasn't expecting much as many times hotel restaurants are overrated/underwhelming. I couldn't have been more wrong. Everything about this place was fantastic. We had a large group (11) and even though we didn't reserve the private dining room, when seeing it was unoccupied, were allowed to sit there. Our server was amazing...... More
