Sadly, while the chargrilled oysters were are as spectacular as we'd remembered, the rest of the food left something to be desired. Our first visit to this Metarie landmark took place nearly 13 years ago and the food/ambiance blew us away. When returning to the Crescent City we knew that this was a "must visit". As things do, the restaurant... More

Have gone here many, many times over many years. Know family many years. Best oysters in USA. They invented Char Grilled Oysters. Absolutely most delicious oyster dish in world. Also, fresh raw oysters. Drago is the daddy of the Czitanovich family. They are Croatian and have many NO Croatisn friends and family in the oyster business. Good connections get the... More

I am not an oyster fan, but these chargrilled oysters were amazing! We were concerned that we would be underdressed (shorts) but it was fine--many families in the restaurant.

My husband and I were in town visiting relatives who suggested Drago's as a place that could handle my gluten-free requirements. This was our first visit. Though Drago's doesn't have a gluten-free menu, the wait-staff is able to make informed comments about which food can be prepared safely. I got a seasoned redfish, which was very good, though I didn't... More

The grilled oysters were fabulous. I'm longing for some right now and wish someone in my area would have these on the menu. The gumbo and Bloody Mary's were also excellent. The next time I am in New Orleans, I will go out of my way to visit Dragos.

We went to Drago's for dinner our first night in town. The atmosphere was comfortable and we were glad we could walk in and get a table right away. I ordered the shrimp and eggplant stack because I like both and thought it was an intersting combination. The menu says it comes with a tomato cream sauce but to me... More

The original Drago's has the best chargrilled oysters, well-seasoned with garlic, butter, and spices and sprinkled with breadcrumbs. The fragrant sauce overflows the shells onto the trays and can be enjoyed with the crispy French bread served alongside. The raw oysters are fresh from the Gulf. All if the seafood is very fresh. Mrs. Cvitanivich (hope I spelled that right!)... More

Great time! Dragos is located in an area called Fat City...lots of restaurants! There was no wait at 6:00, but based on the size of their wait list book, it must be packed most of the time. Drago's is home of the charbroiled oyster....delicious....hot, grilled flavor, along with a flash of butter and seasoning...what a way to have my first... More

Loved this place! We were there for lunch. I ordered the shrimp and corn bisque and a small crab salad. It was absolutely awesome. The soup was cream based, but not heavy. The salad was served with dressing and two lime wedges and lots of crab meat on top. It was a light - delicious lunch. The server was extremely... More
