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 Steakhouse

Our group each had a different entrée, including steak and seafood. All the dishes were well prepared and tasted great. We shared around the table and everyone was pleased with all the dishes. I had the swordfish. It was great. Will definitely return when we are in that area.

Holy cow... well, they must be holy, since the prices are OUTRAGEOUS! $80 for a steak? $68? PUH-LEEZE! The setting is nice enough, inside a casino. Maybe Harrah's card holders eat here for free with enough points, but paying with your own money is painful. Wait staff -- for our table -- seemed rushed. They didn't need to turn tables,... More

The meal started by a liverr patte being brought out complimentary. Neither of us cared for it, but oh well. The only other negative to the entire experience was the bread that was very hard. Everything else was just excellent. We shared a caeser salad, nice portion, very good, maybe a tad too much dressing. We eat out so often... More

I always fall back to Besh steak at Harrahs when I want an excellent meal.The stuffed crab shell appetizer is the definition of decadence on a plate .Three pasta shells stuffed with a generous crab mixture topped with a rich cheese sauce and truffle foam.Melts in you mouth.

We had a large party and had only a couple of entree choices. I had the sword fish and was good. Good: sword fish, appetizers, and desert (the bread pudding was some of the best I have had). Not so good was my cocktail. It was certainly not very good alcohol, tasted like the cheap stuff.

While staying at the Hilton Riverside, we decided to walk across the street to Harrah's for dinner at Besh Steakhouse. My friend had the filet and said it was one of the best she's ever had. Cooked to a perfect medium rare. I had the Shrimp and Grits and wasn't disappointed. We both actually started with the Crawfish bisque which... More

Visit Harrahs New Orleans every spring and make a point to dine at Besh several times during our stay. Have never had a bad meal or had to send something back because of poor preparation. Our steak dinners have always been prepared perfectly to our liking. Look forward to coming back next spring.

Good steaks, reasonable prices for a steakhouse. Menu was small. Waitstaff friendly. Don't care for fries though and would have preferred something else with my ribeye.

Located right in Harrah's casino but acoustics were good so it was not loud in the restaurant. Excellent salad and steaks. Cheesecake for dessert was ok - LA cheesecake not the same as NY cheesecake but the coffee was the best we had in NOLA!
