Drago's, New Orleans Reviews
What an authentic and amazing New Orleans experience!!! My friend is a local and recommended this place. I definitely recommend starting with the crab dip and the grilled house oysters. Absolutely delicious. The lobster Marco is what I had as my main entree and it was delicious. I will most definitely return here on my next visit to New Orleans. It’s located in a cool location near River Walk . They had a full bar... I had the dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives. The service was fantastic as well. Great overall atmosphere and vibe.
I HIGHLY recommend the charbroiled oysters! I normally get raw oysters and have never had charbroiled, but with that buttery garlic and lemon juice squeezed on top, it one of the best things i’ve ever eaten I couldn’t get enough! Also I used the bread I got to soak up the leftover butter :) Good overall was pretty decent. Nice place to go. One downfall was that me and my boyfriend had to wait 20 minutes to get a table when there were over 10-15 open and empty tables so that was inconvenient. But good place!
Man this is a great place to eat and chill. I’m seeing a lot of negative reviews and I don’t know why some issues seem like minor stuff. Most people that go here are visitors. The place is always jumping and if you want the warm good home service this might not be for you. Come for the char oysters, blackened lobster pasta and a drink and enjoy your stay NOLA. They not hurting with these bad reviews. We have been here multiple times and never have a problem.
Good food, except the fries! Go here for the oyster and seafood. The service was NOT exceptional but pretty standard. You may have to remind them to replenish your water, take away empty plates and provide paper napkins but other than that it's fine. Obviously there busy around the clock too.
Disappointed. First the good... The charbroiled oysters are certainly worth the visit and are five stars. Dragos was recommended by some friends and locals and they earned their recommendation. The disappointment and cause for this low rating came from the lackadaisical service... We stopped by at 4 PM to try their oysters before meeting friends for an evening on the town. While the place was mostly empty, one of the three hostesses politely informed us it would be a 10 to 20 minute wait for a table for two. We did find a place at the bar (that wasn't bussed) and were able to order from the bar tender. The three hostesses chatted among themselves and did nothing to help the bar tender or provide any insight as to why we wouldn't have been able to eat at a table. Would benefit from some more attentive management.
