We ate here twice while we were on this trip. We split a Wedge Salad which turned out to be a great idea. It was huge! Great for sharing. My husband had the prime rub which was not very tender but he loved it. I had the Lobster which i had to send back. It was cooked on the grill... More

My sister in-law wanted her birthday dinner to coincide with "Feeling BLUE my twenties are through" theme that offered a fun atmosphere to celebrate with family and friends. Besh is a CASINO steakhouse with casual-business-semi-formal attire, moderate to noisy noise level, and expensive wine and foods. Tip 1: Children are not permitted. 21 and older and bring a valid photo... More

This was the last dinner on a vacation. I was looked forward to a steak and waited until the last night. Best Steak is located in the casino which isn't an issue. Best not to enter right off Canal St as that is furthest from the restaurant. When going to a high priced steak house I have certain expectations. Coming... More

Was visiting NOLA and we had the opportunity to dine at Besh! We began our adventure at the bar for a short time before being seated. My date for the evening began with a Sazerac, a well know aperitif in New Orleans...very delicious, definitely a sipper! I enjoyed a perfectly made Manhattan, two cherries 🍒 please! We were shown to... More

Husband and I were staying in Harrah's so we went to Besh's for Sunday dinner. We got drinks and they provided us with free deviled eggs as an appetizer. We ordered the BBQ shrimp because the waiter insisted we try them. When they arrived, after my Stone fruit salad (beets and nectarines, oh so good) we had 6 huge shrimps... More

this would be a 5 star review if only the wait staff had been up to task. the food is truly amazing. the flavors are so "new orleans" that they make this local proud. the shrimp and grits were excellent. the special turducen was prepared perfectly and matched to an andouille dressing that fit just right. the expertly prepared speckled...

From the apps to the delicious steak, everything was very good. The restaurant itself could use a make over. Interior tired look.

We had one of the most delicious meals in quite a while. I had a fillet, grilled to tender perfection, with service that was impeccable.

We had dinner at Besh Steakhouse and it was wonderful. The filet was the best I have ever eaten. We go to steakhouses often but I have never had a steak as good as this one. I would recommend going there for a nice dinner.

Having planned to go to nearby Morton's steakhouse instead, but finding it was closed for a private party, I checked into this place which is nearby inside the Harrah's casino building, as it is fairly well rated on here. You have to wander through the illuminated maze of slot machines and tables to reach this calm space at the end... More

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.

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.
