Must have the charbroiled oysters

Stopped by late on a Sunday night and were told there would be a 45 minute wait. They can text you when the table is ready. Somehow we only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table, but certainly didn't complain. Service was ok, nothing special one way or the other. We had the seafood gumbo... read more

This restaurant is located in the "Warehouse District" inside the Hilton Hotel. Upon recommendation of a young couple in our "City/Cemetary" tour, they told us that everyone in their recent cruise highly recommended this restaurant. Well we tried it and for the 2nd time in my life I tried oysters (my husband ordered it). One of their signature dishes is... More

We had the charbroiled oysters at the suggestion of our tour guide and loved them. They were great! Loved that bread came with them so you could get the juices, too. My husband ordered the seafood platter and I ordered the grilled shrimp pasta. The amount of food served was more than we could eat at one time. We both... More

We both had the lobster salad for dinner. It was good, but not large portions and over priced. I also ordered 2 drinks and they were $15 each! Wait time was over 2 hours for a table on a Sunday night. Make your reservation hours in advance.

Typical hotel restaurant meals, over priced and hard to get a seat. The meal I did have was very good. The bar section was busy as well.

The charbroiled oysters are amazing. We sat in the bar of the Hilton and devoured them on several occasions. A dozen of these, break to sop up the butter and a cocktail was dinner enough for me. My 15 year old daughter loved them too. That was her first experience with oysters.

I've waited 5 years to try the charbroiled oysters. I saw Dragos on the food network and wanted to give them a shot. It was definitely worth the wait. My other food items (steak, lobster) I could have done without. The waiter wasn't very attentive and failed to refill drinks after being asked several times. Based off of the charbroiled... More

This is a great place to stop if you love oysters. They are the best and you don't have to stand online outside to get a table like other places. They have all types of oysters as well as the typical New Orleans specialties. Love this restaurant.

My fiance and I were told (by multiple people) that we should eat at DRAGOS solely because they had great oysters. They were very busy, and we sat at the bar so we could be served faster. I think our server may have been a little overwhelmed because it took a while for our stuff to come out. However, the... More

This place was packed by 5:00 and there's a good reason: It's awesome! We had the charbroiled oysters and spinach dip for appetizers, both delicious but the oysters were mind blowing! I had the shrimp florentine for my entree and I was so into it I don't even remember what the rest of my family ordered. It was all delicious... More
