Excellent variety. Both our entries were delicious. We had the grilled Oysters and the flavor was perfection. It is, however a very loud restaurant, which we do NOT like but it was worth tolerating. Divine!

We had the charbroiled oysters in Felix's the dat before and wanted to try someplace different. The place was packed at noon but they had a table for us. We ordered the charbroiled oyster. They had al little too much parmesan cheese for or taste as opposed to Felix in N.O. which we enjoyed

True Story: In 2005, post Katrina, I was walking through Metairie helping disaster impacted people recover. I saw a man in a chef's uniform dishing out food on a buffet table set in a parking lot. I asked him what was he serving & why? He essentially said he's feeding the people to help out and was serving some really... More

The char-broiled oysters get TOP billing, but the rest of the menu is some of the best food you can find any place. When soft shell crabs are in season....do not miss them at Drago's. This great family gives you great food. It's a loud restaurant, but that just adds to how much we enjoyed the food.

I have been here many times and always received a quality experience except for my most recent visit roughly 2 weeks ago. I was included in a party of 9 although the server must have been under the impression it was 19. The server couldn't seem to get into a groove during the entire meal. Food orders came out in...

First time in New Orleans. Our tour guide recommended this restaurant. I've never had oysters and they were marvelous. Rest of the dinner was great fresh seafood. We were there on a Saturday night. Lots of people waiting & parking hard-to-find. In spite of the crowd, the weight never felt long. Definitely worthwhile.

On business in the New Orleans area and wanted a good creole meal. The front desk at our hotel recommended Drago's and they definitely hooked us up. Not sure where to begin we put ourselves in the waitress' hands and she earned every bit of our trust. Started with the Charbroiled Oysters and they were everything as advertised. Charred, buttery,... More

I hadn't been here in a few years byt it was even more delicious than I remembered! We went on a Monday night and they were quite busy and busling. They sat us upstairs, but we immediatly requested to be moved downstairs to main dining room as there was a large loud group upstairs. No problem they moved us swiftly.... More
