As Drago passed away the week beforew we came to try the chargrilled oysters. They were very well done. The rest was forgettable. The fish and shrimp we had were salty and overcooked. Service was indifferent. Pretty much a tourist trap. But if you want go to the place that put grilled the oysters on the map give them a... More

We really enjoyed the meal we had here. I had some excellent gumbo and enjoyed the fried alligator. The seating felt very crowded as the tables were very close together and they seemed to seat people in close proximity rather than spacing them out.

We went to Dragos for lunch Saturday. The restaurant was not busy yet. We got a spring salad with chicken, kids pasta, and shrimp po boy. Our waiter was excellent. The food came out quickly and tasted great. We were in and out quickly. It was a great stop before heading to the parades.

Became a charbroiled oyster fan at Acme Oyster House, but these are just as good and this is more of a resturant with many options. Great food here

Charbroiled oysters are the best reason to visit! I am not a big oysters fan but these are scrumptious. Accompanied with garlic butter and bread, you can have a dozen for dinner. Enjoy!!

My husband and I ate here after a long day. The food was great. My husband had the wedge salad and shrimp & grits and I had the jambalaya pasta. All of which was great. Our server was fabulous. Super friendly and attentive. Overall we were very happy with our experience there!

Based upon recommendations we had looked forward to closing out our dining experience in New Orleans with Drago's. However this ended up being the worst experience. Our server avoided our table like the plague. When the raw oysters arrived we were out of drinks and did not get crackers at all. The charbroiled oysters were very greasy. Service was so... More

Located in the Hilton, Drago's was recommended to us by nearly every Luca we talked to! The food was delicious! The service was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good meal! I highly suggest going for lunch rather than dinner!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
