Went to Drago’s last night and the food was great! We ordered the chargrilled oysters (a must order per my husband), seafood pasta, lobster and lobster mac and cheese. I also tried the “swamp water” drink which was really good as well. Everything was tasty...More

Literally the BEST oysters I have ever eaten! They are fire roasted right there. Huge oysters! Perfectly seasoned. Easy to eat 1-2 dozen in one sitting. Go hungry!! :)

I was in NOLA for a few days, and I must say that I had Dragos oysters 3 times. They are GREAT. Tried a few other things on the menu but was not impressed at all.

world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
