In its dazzling contemporary setting among the bold iconic canvases of George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog, Besh Steak is not your traditional steakhouse. 150 rich brown leather seats, some in private curtained booths, are set among crystal puddles of azure blue. A sleek, backlit wall of wine bottles is flanked by a glowing amber bar and an open brushed-silver kitchen. High-rolling guests and food critics alike will be swept away with the cool dining grandeur at Besh Steak in Harrah's New Orleans. Please note that you and your party must be 21 years or older to enter. The restaurant melds Chef John Besh's devotion to local Louisiana ingredients and techniques with traditional steakhouse menu items. Wine and spirits are also an integral part of the dining experience at Besh Steak, with hand-selected cellar choices to accompany each dish.

Delicious steaks. Ha. Great wait staff. I really enjoyed my filet. I like the atmosphere with large Blue Dog paintings. Really glad the casino is no longer smoking. This will help make the dining experience much more enjoyable.

If you decide to dine here, please be sure to pay cash!! My husband and I used our credit card to pay for our meal and Besh charged us 3 times!! The meal was only $80 but Besh charged us over $340 - that's 4 times what the meal was worth (Unbelievable). All they could say was that they were... More

We had 9pm reservations last night and felt rushed to order. Our server, Patricia, was pleasant but seemed over burdened with tables as she made us feel rushed. She wore her battle scars with food on her vest. The bar in the place is too loud and they will sing Happy Birthday for you there but not at the table??... More

For top shelf atmosphere combined with grade A choice beef, you can't beet Besh. Don't visit New Orleans without experiencing one of the finest eatery's in the northern hemisphere.

If you must eat in a Casino, this is an okay choice. They are known for steak, so that was my choice and a good one. There is a good selection of wines, my choice always being Malbec.
