General Info:
Desi Vega is the restaurateur of Zagat's 7th ranked steakhouse in America, Mr. John's and the new Desi Vega's Steakhouse. Due to the success of Mr. John's, Desi began to look for another location. He chose one on St Charles Avenue (formerly Mike's On The Avenue) in the Warehouse/CBD District and decided to "brand" the new one Desi Vega's Steakhouse because Mr John's is also located on St. Charles Avenue in the Garden District. Floor to ceiling windows in the spectacular main dining room overlook the historic St Charles Avenue Streetcar Line, Gallier Hall and the majestic oaks in Lafayette Square. Desi grew up the in the restaurant business and was groomed by Ella Brennan at Commander's Palace, Ruth Fertel of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and Emeril Lagasse. Mr. John's and Desi Vega's are the "local's" place to go for great steaks! Desi Vega's is the "power place" for business lunches and a favorite for more trendy crowd at night mixed in with local celebs. I's the place to be and be seen and favorite gathering spot before and after the New Orleans Saints home games.

Good food, poor experience.

Great food, poor experience.

Came by early for the sister bar, Twist. Twist proved to have strong but below average (in taste) drinks at an above average price. I could really teach them a thing or two about making drinks.

Arrived on time for our reservations at Mike's. We were put off for ""10 minutes."" 10 became 50 before we were seated. Very pleasantly delivered service was nonetheless delivered at such a drawn out pace that, having arrived at 7:45 and been seated at 8:25 we only finished our meal at 10:35. The food was mostly good to fabulous, but starving before, frustrated during, and stuffed at bedtime (with the regrettable indigestion and sleepless night to come).

Oh, I forgot to mention that we
were on a TravelZoo offer of a fixed price for a shared appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 2 drinks, and shared dessert. The offer was priced for a max $35 entree. The entrees (new menu!!) were all ~$24, with 1 $36 ""not on the TravelZoo offer. I was told I could ante up the $1 and have the filet. After a glacial wait, I was told they were ""out of the filet, except for 1 which they had ""accidentally"" overcooked. They forced a hanger steak on me, not bad, but billed at $36. Wow. Can I say transparent dishonesty? A second couple on TravelZoo received similar treatment.

Don't come here if you are on a schedule, or if you want to be fairly treated.
