Loved this place. Sat at the oyster bar, and everyone busy working there engaged me. They were friendly and looked like they were having fun. Every wait staff I encountered was the same way. They all seemed to love their work. I don't eat oysters, that is until I had the Charbroiled oysters! They were amazing, I ate them three... More

My husband and I decided to have a late lunch and chose Drago's. What a wonderful decision. Everything was wonderful from the greeter when we walked in and especially our server, Richard. We had of course, the charbroiled oysters which were absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back whenever in the city.

Ate here when we stayed at the Hilton Riverside. Service was great, food was average expect for the chargrilled oysters. I am not a big fan of oysters but I could have eaten several dozen of these, they were the best I have ever eaten. If you looking for oysters defiantly stop here, anything else there are better restaurants.

It is so AMAZING to go to a place that is highly recommended and it actually live up to the billing! We had that experience when we went to Drago's last night in New Orleans. We went to try the Oysters (which everyone we met just raved about), but the thing that we were not expecting was the incredible service.... More

I love oysters and never had them charboiled. Oh my, real butter, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, french bread and a wonderful glass of red wine! At a great price. This was my happiest hour ever!

All I can say is "Outstanding"! The chargrilled oysters are to die for! If visiting New Orleans, you must check it out, food and service are without a doubt the absolute best!!

Ate lunch here and had the lunch special which was bbq shrimp and pasta. It was good. My friend had oysters on half shell and said they were wonderful. We were there around 2 p.m. and it still had a crowd for lunch---on a week day. Nice atmosphere.

Food...pasta, oysters on half shell, charbroiled oysters outstanding. Salad with currants delicious. One major negative. Our friends entree was served within 5 minutes".....before we even got water and our drinks. Apologized and gave us one glass of wine. Yahoo....

My best friend wanted some char-broiled oysters, so we headed for Dragos for dinner. It's a large place, but the tables are situated where you will not feel cramped. The staff (three young ladies at the front desk) were friendly and helpful. Our waiter, CJ, was terrific and really knows the menu. My friend ordered, at CJ's recommendation, blackened redfish.(after... More

We had the Raw Oysters and the Charbroiled Oysters. So good. Drago's also has a nice beer and wine selection. Great atmosphere and friendly Staff. If you are staying in the French Quarter, Drago's is on the Street car line or you can walk.
