One of our friends who is a local brought us here for the oysters. The best chargrilled oysters we had (this prompted us to try them at Acmes and Felix's). The French bread and butter was to die for. We teased our friend that he got bigger oysters because they knew he was from the bayou. The gumbo was delicious... More

I would have given this restaurant review and Excellent rating had it not been for the poor service by our waitress. Now to the oysters; these are undoubtedly the best charbroiled oysters I have ever eaten. They were so scrumptious and the flavor was interesting and aromatic. We were greeted by our waitress and she was "pleasant" at first. We... More

Good food! Enjoyed the appetizer - crab meat and toasted bread. We had a good meal before a show at Harrah's. Very fun.

Chargrilled oysters - magnificent. I cannot visit New Orleans without stopping by Dragos. I love love love the oysters. Our waiter was super friendly and made my husbands birthday celebration great. Thanks excellent service Monique.

The food was wonderful; the service excellent. I ordered seafood pasta, which was very good. We split a salad which was brought out as separate salads, and each was billed for 1/2 salad...highly unusual. The only complaint was that we had to ask for bread, and it was sliced French bread, plain. We were not offered butter. I would recommend... More

Went with a large group. Had a little wait to get seated even with a reservation. Had to try the chargrilled oysters based on recommendations. They were very good. Ask for extra bread because sopping the drippings is the best part of the meal. The other entrees were very good as well and varied.

I hate writing bad reviews and especially one that has such serious implications but it is what it is. The service was okay at the Hilton location...not outstanding and we had to wait a bit for a server- no big deal. He hesitated when we asked for char grilled oysters and went to the back and then came back and... More

Yummy charbroiled oysters! The staff is friendly and the service was quick. It is located inside the Hilton hotel but has the quality of a top notch stand alone restaurant.

Stayed at the. Hilton for 4 days and. after a day of touring we opted for a leisurely dinner at the hotel. Catfish was fried lightly and very moist served with fries. My husband had boudin stuffed shrimp which was a tasty modern take on a fractional NOLA dish. Convenient dinner place for Hilton guests.
