Although the charbroiled oysters were top notch, nothing else our party of five had met our expectations. The shrimp in the"holy trinity " was very bland. The redfish with crabmeat stuffing was way over cooked. The shrimp creole portion was very small for the money and average in taste. Service was I inattentive and slow. Our waitress did not clear...

We loved the charbroiled oysters and barbecued shrimp appetizers we shared at Drago's bar. Server Chelsea provided excellent service and lots of guidance to us for our first trip to NOLA. This was a fun and delicious dining experience! Reasonable prices, too.

The food here is incredible. The specialty char-grilled oysters are so good you can't stop eating them. We went with a party of 9. At first they stuck us upstairs but then quickly set up a table downstairs when they realized we were disappointed. Food and service were amazing. Place was packed on a Tuesday night.

I had lunch at Drago's during the American Public Association Conference. Jamie provided excellent service. Enjoyed the charbroiled oysters, gumbo, and lobster mac n cheese. Looking forward to returning to Drago's!

I had a salad and it was great. Our waiter seemed a bit pre-occupied but in all it was a nice experience.

I've eaten here before and the oysters are good. My only complaint is the broken shells when you eat them. Compared to other places in town the oysters are a bit small. The crab salad is delicious and I get it every time I go.

I always have a wonderful time when I visit Drago's. The Oysters (raw and char-grilled) are delicious and the staff is great. My waiter Michael was very accomidating and attentive, and the Manager Dan was quick to answer any questions we had and offer information about the city that made the rest of our evening a success. We will definitely... More

We were in New Orleans for our 31st anniversary. Some friends suggested Dragos..so glad they did!!! The char broiled oysters were incredible (and I'm not really an oyster fan). The entire dinner was perfect thanks to our server Stephanie T. We will definitely be back next time were in town...keep up the great work!

We would totally recommend this for everyone. If you have never had oysters, you can't go wrong with the charbroiled.. What's not to love about butter and cheese?!?!!!? We are avid raw oyster lovers from Baltimore (home of THE Chesapeake Bay) and loved the raw AND charbroiled oysters.. Really excellent. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were great.... More
