Delicious grilled oysters. Salad? The dinner salad that comes with the meal, is mixed lettuce that comes out of a bag with one tiny slice of cucumber; no tomato, no crouton, no other topping whatsoever. It was of very poor quality. Would recommend they charge an extra dollar or two and not insult the diner by serving their version of... More

Great service, flavor of the charbroiled oysters was incredible but they were very small. Only one of twelve had descent size. Other food was good but not great. Steak was to be rare but was only seared at best and still cool. Yellow Fin was almost seared but had good flavor. We'd go back but we would order more oysters... More

I ate lunch here Saturday with my wife, step son & his GF. They all ordered sandwiches. The chargrilled oysters were more breading than oyster. The po-boy bread was so hard that you could have pounded nails in a board with it. Spending that much money on a sandwich calls for a great sandwich. These were terrible. I wanted to... More

I Had dinner with a large party and was very pleased with my charbroiled lobster with spinach risotto. Three big WOWs to Drago's. Food, service, and prices--all great. I'll be back the next time I'm in Metairie.

The guy who did the grilling was so wonderful. He enjoyed his work , which made you want to try them. My next... More

One of our favorite go to restaurants. Pick up our guests from the airport and head straight to Dragos for charbroiled oysters.

Went here while in town for business. The Charbroiled Oysters are amazing! I am not necessarily a huge fan of oysters but these will make you want to eat these every day! Also had the Lobster Mac & Cheese and it was also amazing! Can't say enough how great the food was!

A business associate who lives in N.O. Recommended Drago's based on it being near the hotel we were staying. Service was very good with our waitress offering recommendations that my wife and I both enjoyed. The grilled oysters were very good. I had the jambalaya Cajun pasta...also very good. My wife had the special which was a soft shell crab... More
