I have recently become addicted to charbroiled oysters. Drago's claim to fame is having invented their particular style. They're topped with garlic butter and parm/romano mix, YUM. Along with a bloody mary - perfect hangover cure. Felix's in the Quarter also puts out some tasty ones.

When you walk in the door you know you are in for an experience. There were at least fifteen people shucking and grilling oysters and then we rode the elevator to the second floor. One of our guest tried the chargrilled oysters and smiled the whole night because he loved the taste. We tried several appetisers and had different dishes... More

Ok. If you're searching for a great chargrilled oyster then you have found the one and only. They know how to do it and you will not be disappointed. However, entree selections are over priced and over rated. We sampled a $20 crab salad that was bland and boring and was served a seared tuna steak that appeared to be... More

I know it's a late review but i haven't been able to find any oysters to beat Drago's taste! First let me start by saying I've never been a oyster eating person but after trying these...my tastebuds tingle just thinking about them! They are grilled to perfecting and topped with Romano n parmesan cheese n white wine! I say go... More

I make it a habit to try to go to Drago's every time I come back to New Orleans. There is no place in New Orleans that makes chargrilled oysters like Drago's. Many try, but most fail. Their's is second to none!!. The gumbo is also great!! Do not miss this place!

I saw some good reviews about this place on the Internet, so we decided to go. We were not disappointed! The service was great and the food was too! Before the meal we tried the shrimp and corn bisque and it was very good!For the entree I had the stuffed crab with the crabmeat au gratin and my mom got... More

Can you say Chargrilled Oysters!!! You can come in and just eat these. Order a dozen per person and soak up all the juice with the bread. We also had the fresh lobster that was unbelievable. Bring your customers here and impress them all. Great staff to explain everything. I will definitely be back!

I'd eaten at the downtown Drago's before but I don't remember it being this good. I arrived before 7pm on Saturday night and there was already a healthy wait for tables. I was dining solo so they suggested I sat straight at the bar to eat. The waiter / barman was very attentive. They had free wifi so I kept... More

My husband and I had no wait for an early mid-week dinner. Our server was friendly and prompt. We had an appetizer and entrees, and the server made sure our meal was not rushed and well paced. I did want to try a lobster dish, but went instead for the Red Fish. It was flawlessly prepared and so very good.... More

Great Louisiana seafood restaurant. Chargrilled oysters and fresh redfish stuffed with crabmeat .......doesn't get any better than this. Always busy but well worth the short wait. Try not to get seated upstairs as it looses the atmosphere.
