Good service and good food...bit of a surprise in one plate

We ate here at the recommendation of our hotel and the recommendation of a contact with the a "plantation house" wedding venue. We had lunch on a Saturday during Mardi Gras season. The placed was packed, but we got right in. Prices were a bit on the high side for a lunch menu. Most were in the... read more

One of the specialties grilled oysters If you like oysters and maybe if you don't must have item. All the seafood is al least great some is out of this world. Had sea food pasta and it is one of my favorites.

The raw oysters were very fresh, but what would you expect given the location. The "Seafood Pasta", is listed on the menu as a "shrimp and crabmeat in a delicate creams sauce, served over angel hair pasta with a sprinkle of Parmesan and Romano". In reality, it was a heavy Alfredo Sauce and served with just shrimp. There was no... More

My wife's family resides in Metairie, Kenner and Luling. I get to Drago's at least 3 times a year. Starting with the very senior citizen that runs the low tech front counter and its reservations, cash register and credit cards, this place never changes. If it ain't broke don't fix it, right ? This past visit was no exception. I... More

Service was fine, but the food left much to be desired. I had the wedge salad and a dozen of the much-touted chargrilled oysters. The salad was ok, just ok. The oysters tasted fine, but were loaded with shell fragments...every bite was ruined by slivers of shell that I was picking out of my mouth for the next fifteen minutes.... More

I have been to both locations and I love the food here. Chargrilled oysters and lobster Mac and cheese are some of the best I had.

One of my favorite New Orlean's restaurants is Drago's. Everything is phenomenal and I've never been disappointed. Drago's is perfect for entertaining family, and introducing them to mouth watering seafood. There is also a large selection of GF options for those who suffer from Celiac's. Personally, I loved the GF Oysters Hurradura. I suggest that if you are in New... More

We were warned not to go to the new Drago's in the Convention Center area where we were staying and heeded that warning. Our waitress in Metairie told us why. I was glad we listened as my wife had never had their charcoal grilled oysters. This is the dish that made Drago's famous. We each had a dozen to start... More

A group of hungry friends came here for dinner. The service was very good. The chargrilled oysters are a must to order. They are outstanding. Our group had several dozen chargrilled oysters along with beef medallions grilled shrimp salads and gumbo. All were excellent. Service was very good. Our waiter went out of his way to please everyone at the... More
