  • We were going to go to another place for oysters, but a guide on a food tour told us to visit Drago's instead. It was good advice. I don't eat oysters, so this was for the John, my husband. He had the char grilled oysters and said they were the best he has ever had! We both had the seafood gumbo and loved it as well. While John was eating the oysters, I rather enjoyed the shrimp creole. Ask for Lisa, she was great!

  • So started with the alligator bites that tasted delicious... Had a taste of fresh chicken... Followed it up with shrimp pasta plate. That had a very good taste... The sauce was creamy and was a great proportion for the plate. Normally I don't eat heavy pasta food but this was very delicious.

  • I don’t like oysters...but the charbroiled oysters at Drago’s are a different story. Wow! So good. And the French bread dipped in the butter they are cooked in is just delicious. Their pot roast is also amazing! You’d think that would be weird to order at a seafood restaurant but it was awesome. We eat here every time we come to New Orleans. Their hurricanes are good too.

  • Just maybe the best Char-broiled Oysters I've EVER had. I'm usually an Oyster Rockefeller guy. I ask for it everywhere I go, including my first visit to Drago's. But my friends and our server Jessica, highly recommend them. So in return, I highly recommend trying the Char+broiled Oysters. This location has a cut off time for oysters, so make sure you are there at least one hour before closing. The atmosphere is outstanding. Nested in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel, the views are plentiful with an open air feel and very spacious. I recommend grabbing a table near the bar, sit back and enjoy the experience.

  • I wonder aloud (since you are reading this) if an experience is made much more deep when you, yourself disprove, a preconceived bias and discover something you really like when you go in expecting to be disappointed or set the bar fictitiously low. Such was the case for Drago's....I have a couple biased opinions, one being "stay away from national chains" and a second "avoid restaurants in a mini mall or strip center". A third one, that I'm not so vocal about is "avoid restaurants in or on the ground floor of a hotel"....thinking you have to get out and about to have a truly rich experience. Oh ...shame on me. I loved this place and found the whole experience delightful. The atmosphere, half in, half out (or in a multi story open lobby) was really visually stimulating. I especially enjoyed watching all the men around me listening intently to their companions with at least one eye focused on the NBA game playing on all the TVs about the elevated bar. Here is a treat, order the cheesecake and ask for all the extras "on the side". When it is served you will swear you must have ordered a scoop of ice cream or the sundae BUT it's awesome.... ironically our hotel recommended we go there and we we're not disappointed. Oh, and lest I forget two items. They have a really dynamic display kitchen and the place as a whole is a lot larger than you might at first think....maybe that's a New Orleans thing?
