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.

Great Meal

Our meal was very good, the restaurant was beautiful, hardly knew we were in a Casino. The waitress was a little rough around the edges, but she didn't make and mistakes with our food. Would recommend this restaurant.

Good food, extensive variety, but way overpriced. One could find many more places with better food for a cheaper price within a few short steps of this restaurant.

Average rating may be generous. We ordered lump crab meat stuffed shells for an app. Wife got the Filet , I got the Blackened Redfish and blacked shrimp. The Shells tasted like canned tuna with dill. My fish was not blackened nor was it cooked (still Frozen in the middle). Shrimp were cooked but also not blackened. The fish went... More

With all the raves of John Besh, we decided to try his steakhouse in New Orleans during our trip. As we waited for the wait staff to come, looked around the restaurant, and the ambiance was that of middle to upper class cafeteria. Their special that night was 10 oz lobster with 6 oz filet. We both chose the special... More

My wife and I were able to coordinate our work travel together so we turned our work trips into an extended get away. I wanted to do something grand to enjoy our first night together after our work was done. I am a fan of John Besh's work and was ecstatic they offered a 5 course Chef's Table with wine... More

Wonderful dinner here! Steaks were great, service was great, even John Besh came to our table to shake our hands and see how our evening was going. It was nice to take a break from the casino without having to leave to dine at a nice restaurant.

Been here 5 times in 3 years. I get the cowboy ribeye and it is perfectly consistent every time. This time we got fried oysters as an appetizer .... And they are the best and most uniquely fried I have ever seen. Dark batter ... Like a ru......... Excellent.

While I was taking a risk at the tables in Harrah's Casino I went over to Besh Steakhouse for dinner. I ordered for starters a fresh salad and Asparagus soup. The salad was good but the soup was excellent. The soup was rich and creamy with a good taste. My main entrée was the Rib eye steak which had a... More

Had a lovely dinner at Besh on Saturday February 14th. I had the pork chop with the corn and crab risotto, it was excellent. For dessert we shared the bread pudding which was a large portion easily feeding two people.

We ate at Besh under a high recommendation. It is suppose to be a top notch place where reservations are needed and steaks start at $65 a piece. We are beer, burger & wing people, however, we love a good steak and like to eat at one "fancy" place when we travel and this was our choice. My Rib Eye... More
