I have been a long time fan of this restaurant. They are known for their chargrilled oysters and there is a very good reason for this. They have some of the best not only in New Orleans, but I would say likely some of the best in the United States. They are grilling oysters pretty much from open until close.... More

Every bite of everything was delicious! We had Shrimp Fleur de Lis and Shrimp Brochettes...loved both...shrimp is spicy with a little kick that was just right. Raw oysters...fresh, plump, big and icy cold! Chargrilled oysters are rich and delicious...of course, we used the bread to gather up all the buttery, garlicky, cheesy sauce! Yum! Against all reason, we ate every... More

Well, our businesss have traveled the US and rated all of the restaurants which chargrilled oysters tasted the best and hands down this place won our award (there are 5 in our group). THE other food is great and fresh and reason it is always crowded and always a wait to seat.. be patient and enjoy...................................

I tried their stuffed fish plate and it was a huge disappointment. So I sent it back and ordered an eggplant and shrimp dish, also disappointing, but I did not send it back. The place was packed and it seems to have lots of patrons. Dragos does nothing for me, not even the appetizer was appetizing to me. I also... More

Let me start with this...until Drago's I hated oysters. I now look forward to coming back for their infamous char grilled oysters. Delicious.

This was one of the most unique meals I have ever eaten and one that required me wiping up all of the parmesan-butter sauce off the plate with bread after finishing the oysters.

Generally enjoyed the food, although Felix's charbroiled oysters are better --and supposedly this is what Drago's is known for... they are still good just not as good! One down-side, when we went for lunch the wait staff was either non-existent or overbearing... no happy middle ground.

I can truly say I had the worst fried catfish I've ever had. It was soggy, and had a strong stinky fishy taste.
