Food was good. Tried their famous smoked oysters. I enjoyed it but bit oily and too much breading. Surf & turf was enjoyable. I can't say this is a must visit next time I'm in town. Late night & still had to wait for a table so lucky to find an opening at bar. Visited another establishment next night where the cost for 3 people was = to 1 at Dragos.
Our waitress was not good at her job. Her service was very slow and she left twice while taking our orders to go to another table and refill water. She forgot the meal for one of our group members (the restaurant did give us 2 free desserts for this) and also brought 2 incomplete orders to our table. She split all the appetizers among the table, which we didn't want because only a few ordered/ate appetizers. We did not tip her well because the service was so poor. She then tried to corner us one by one as we were leaving to yell at us for the poor tips. If I could I would have taken my receipt back and scratched out the tip. The food was not bad but none in our party will be going back to Drago's.
Drago is located inside the Hilton with access from the street and the hotel. When we arrived the one hostess asked how many in our party and another seated us without ever speaking a word to us not even to inform us who our server was. The server though nice seemed extremely scattered. Food was okay but the much raved about charbroiled oysters fell flat. It was soggy and the oysters were small. Other than that everything else was good.
If you come to Drago's at any point in the evening, expect to wait. The charbroiled oysters are the best in the city, so it's worth it. If you're lucky, you can stake out some seats at the bar and order off the menu from there. There are some local beers that are worth pairing with the fried seafood you won't be able to get enough of. Don't be turned away by the wait - this is THE place in NOLA for charbroiled oysters. I would recommend doing an all-appetizer meal if your group agrees!
We waited 25minutes to be seated in a half empty restaurant. This was okay since we were not in a rush. We had an excellent server. She was quite nice, prompt, refilled our drinks timely, and checked on us often. THE FOOD HOWEVER...... Not good. I ordered seafood pasta which was cold and dry tasting. My husband ordered Chicken Romano which he didn't finish and that's not like him. He cleans all plates. Just wasn't what I expected.
