Four Generations....

..of my family have had the oysters at Casamento's. A jewel in New Orleans, no, an institution. Drago's, Bozo's, Acme, Felix's, take lessons. A little storefront, unassuming spot on Napoleon Av and Magazine St, with maybe a dozen tables. Most always a line, sometimes out the door. All tile... read more

Casamento is a family owned place and looks like in the past or retro. We had raw and grilled oysters, they were big, but I was a little surprised they didn't even wash them, they were muddy (like a reviewer already wrote). We are from Canada, when we have oysters, they are smaller and taste salt water. Those here didn't.... More

This place is genuine, NOLA. Nothing fancy but everything good. Wait staff can seem a little harried but give them a smile and they smile back. The shuckers love to show you the little beauties once they are opened up. Oysters are a little muddy , just like the city but fat and full of taste. Gumbo is good as... More

This is a wonderful step back in time. The staff was friendly and genuine. The oysters & soft shell crab the best. We can't wait to go back.

This is a terrific place for raw oysters and is very much a neighborhood vibe. I did not mention the chargrilled oysters, but like the raw they are excellent and not as buttery as the ACME oyster bar. The Oyster stew is very good but not to be confused with seafood gumbo, its more a stew and has a much... More

On a list of New Orleans top 31 restaurants. Specialize in oysters.Not a lot of tables, and crowd looked like locals. My companion is an oyster aficionado, and loved the large oysters. My shrimp were also very good. This is the place if you like to eat with the locals.

We had a wonderful lunch here in this unique restaurant with tile on the wall from 1949 and original floor tile from 1919. Staff were friendly and helpful. Service was very good. My husband had a oyster loaf and I had the shrimp loaf. We added their char broiled french fries. Wonderful. We would go back in a heartbeat. Great... More

My mom and I ate here on Friday, January 3, 2015. We showed up just as they were opening the doors for dinner. The line was 20 deep and as everyone filed into the restaurant, we secured the final empty table. Woot. The server was in the weeds pretty much right off the bat. They were understaffed but she did... More

Went for the raw oysters. Added the gumbo, and a shrimp loaf. Everything was fresh and full of flavor. If you are following the book titled "Eat Dat", they have the address wrong. They have 4300 Magazine and it's at 4330. It's a narrow store front and easy to miss. We drove by twice, but am really glad we kept... More
