Service was awful. Portions were small and not good quality. It was as though they were purely into selling the name rather than the product

When Besh first opened the prices were high but at least it tasted good. Now there just run of the meal. I've tried just about everything on the menu!!! The Grouper Fish with crabmeat was good (only on menu for a very short time), I always get the surf n turf, Sirloin steak and fries, it's ok, nothing to brag... More

I am quite shocked that I went there twice and hoped service and food would be better. The good was better the second time, but the service was really appalling. A water took 35 minutes to offer water. Then 15 minutes later, another waiter apologized that we were "forgotten." We were the last to be serviced and we ordered salads... More

So, I was slightly hesitant to dine in a casino in a "Food Mecca" that is New Orleans. Hands Down this is the Real Deal. Helpful that it has Besh's name attached, but living in Texas we love our steak. The room is beautiful and surprisingly quiet having slot machines & table right outside the entrance. The menu is thoughtful... More

It's in the casino but is surprisingly quiet .One can have an intimate dinner there. The food is wonderful and there is a variety of other entrees for non steak eaters.

We thought we would try this place. We shared a 38oz Cowboy Steak. Steak was good but not great. Steak did not come out sizzling like most other steak places. The steak definitely needed more seasoning. The steak was just so-so. This place is just ok, but in my opinion for the price and the wow factor, you are better... More

This place never disappoints. I can not stress enough the quality of service and food. In my opinion it's the best venue in a long list of Jon besh owned steak houses.

Description
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.
