Prior to my trip to Drago's, the only oysters I ever ate were deep fried; however, I was determined that if I would ever just try raw oysters it would be in New Orleans. My cousin recommended Drago's, and I'm so glad she took us!...More

The rest of the meal was really bad. We had chargrilled oysters and each ordered a dinner salad. One salad had no dressing on it and one had the wrong dressing on it and was supposed to have avocado and did not. Both salads were...More

I was told they have the very best oysters and I was not let down. Their garlic, char grilled oysters are the best I have ever had. You can taste the smoke as well as the garlic but both are equally balanced. We only had...More

Our party of five had one person running a few minutes late. The other guests were seated, handed menus, and within a few minutes were expected to orders. The waiter was rude and it truly spoke volumes regarding his displeasure with his job. I was...More

We didn't try this restaurant for a few nights because it was in the hotel, but when we did we were very pleasantly surprised. Great food and service and, really, only a couple of $ more expensive than outside restaurants. Well worth a visit.

The chargrilled oysters were great and the hubby had the lobster Mac and cheese which was great and even though it was an appetizer it was plenty for a meal.

It was a great place for oysters. We had 3 different types: fresh oysters,fried oysters, and their famous grilled oysters. All 3 types were sensational! Service was attentive and friendly. A very casual place within the Hilton Riverside.

Good place to eat. I had seafood pasta with lots of cheese. I am told people go there for the oysters but I am not a raw oyster person. It was very busy. I would recommend this place for dinner. Nice menu.

These were some fresh, briny, sweet, and delicious oysters, followed by a few more that were grilled with garlic and goodness. But what set this meal apart was the spicy praline parfait. The trip to NOLA was worth it just to have experienced that dessert!

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
