A nice place for casual food and the best Broiled and Raw Oysters I've had anywhere. IF you love oysters...this is a must place to eat.

We had high expectations as many folks had told us that the charbroiled oysters here were the best. My wife ordered them as an appetizer for our lunch. She thought they were quite good, but not the best. I tried one of from here order and I thought it was OK. It was quite strongly garlic flavored, which I like,... More

Decided to check out the newly renovated Riverwalk mall and had a tasted for some oysters. Being a local and concierge I opted to stop in. The menu is good just some discrepancies. Whatever you do, during lunch hrs don't have STEPHANIE as your waiter. You've been warned. Crystal handled things very professionally. So still stop by guys!

Our dinner at Drago's was one of the best meals we had in New Orleans. It was really busy when we were there, but the bartenders were attentive and the wait was shorter than promised. The chargrilled oysters were great! We both had lobster, which did not disappoint. I can't leave the brownie unmentioned. It was a perfect end to... More

We had the crab and cheese dip, overly salty under seasoned, runny. It was not a nice dinning experience. I had a glass of Riesling, glass was dirty. I... More

We took a food tour that went to 5 other places. However, our tour guide, suggested Drago's if anyone was interested in oysters, or particularly charbroiled oysters. We were in town for 3 nights and ended up eating here 2 times. The food was fantastic! Our server, Greg, was awesome! I was hesitant to try a raw oyster and ordered... More

Went to Drago's because, one - we were staying in the hotel, and two - because it came well recommended on Trip Advisor. My wife got the stuffed lobster (signature dish) and I got the traditional NOLA gumbo. My gumbo was so salty I couldn't eat it, tasted nothing but the salt. I was done, as a avid cook myself,...
