Have had the chargrilled oysters several times, best in the city for sure. I also asked the waitress this time to make a recommendation, she suggested the Herradura Oysters for some New Orleans flair, but not too heavy. It was really excellent, and not something I probably would have picked off the menu, so I'm glad that I asked. Good... More

We ordered a dozen chargrilled oysters, but we could have eaten 3 dozen. They are excellent. I didn't like the creole style gumbo as much with the heavy tomato. The fried fish and shrimp was very good, but not earth-shaking.

I ordered 1/2 dozen char-grilled oysters and grilled red fish with crab on top (crab meat was extra). All of it was very good. Staff was excellent in there knowledge of the menu too. Helped me with picking favorite items on the menu.

The service was excellent and our servers were on point. We had two round tables pushed together which meant some of our family members were not able to socialize with the rest of the party. The restaurant is very noisy since the open floor renovation; however they did a fantastic Job updating to more of a modern atmosphere. The food... More

The oysters were plump and two biters. I had both the char broiled and the raw, both were wonderful.The brownie desert was delicious.

My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant and I must say we were sorely disappointed. My wife ordered stuffed Lobster with Spinach .When her food was delivered it was cold and the Lobster was tough. She sent it back and the replacement meal came out worse than the initial order. We drove from Houston, Texas to attend a... More

Well first they expanded the parking and then they expanded the restaurant, offering more seating with large windows and beautiful sunlit ambiance... The food is what keeps me coming every time I'm in Metairie (sometimes more than once in a week). I have tried almost everything on the menu and it's all delicious but the oysters are to die for!...

Dragos is a great place to get raw or charbroiled oysters. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. My husband and I went to have dinner and it was awesome. It does have a family atmosphere but you can also order drinks.

No need to venture into N.O. The Metairie location is secure, new, and nice. Gumbo, crab salad, steak and lobster, chargrilled oysters, all close to perfect. A must.

Thank Tom D
