My wife was craving char broiled oysters after our meal a drago's in the Hilton riverside. We arrived about 15 minutes before closing and asked if we had time for oysters. They seated us immediately. My wife was very disappointed in the oysters with small fingernail size shell in the oysters. We had ordered two dozen for the two of... More

I wouldn't miss writing this. I had used Trip Advisor to find this place but since we travelled quite a distance through a number of great cities, I had totally forgotten why I chose it. The surrounding area is rather industrial and the interior/exterior is nothing to write home about. Thank goodness, our friendly server suggested the oysters. That's when... More

This restaurant is just the perfect if you are looking for a seafood. You may have to wait a bit longer depending on the flow of customer.

I came here TWICE in one trip: one with business associates, and another with family. In both instances, the wait staff was top-notch - we wanted for nothing. Friendly, highly interactive, and just about anticipated our every need before it was even expressed. In both instances, as other reviewers have attested, the char-grilled oysters dominated the tablescape. I confess that... More

The chargrilled oysters at this place are amazing. That is all you need. Service good. Parking difficult. Worth a trip.

Crazy crowded, we got put on the 2nd floor- an old elevator practically through the kitchen and not much charm. Friendly staff running around doing crowd control. Food was delicious. Someone ordered the duck served on pasta with an oyster sauce and said it was the best ever. Out of the way place but worth it. Super fun!

Raw Oysters were great, Char-broiled Oysters very good, Lobster good, salads ok, Portabello salad was poor, sides are poor/terrible. Drago's needs to work on non-oyster items.

Over the past few years of eating my way through the New Orleans area I find myself going back each visit to Drago's in Metairie. It has become my go-to restaurant for great seafood in the N.O. area. My meals there have been consistently outstanding. Please note that I am referring to the Metairie location and not the Drago's in... More

they are famous for their charbroiled oysters and they should be. I could eat 10 dozen!!! Jumbo crabmeat salad was not jumbo crabmeat. Disappointing. Everything else is top notch.
