We visited this place the night of Sept. 17, 2017...it was recommended by several workers at our hotel. I've never seen such chaos! It was a wait to be seated...that was fine. The hostess seemed to be bothered by our presence...I can't really say she...More

Hands down Drago's makes the best charbroiled oysters washed down with a Classic Bloody Mary add a great server and you have a perfect mix

food was tolerable but staff weren't friendly or easy to understand. I love accents, but had to ask 2 or 3 times to repeat and things I asked for-- didn't seem like they knew what I was saying. NO silverware, no drinks or napkins, had...More

Drago's is located in the Hilton Riverside and is an absolutely great place to eat. Having been there many times, I had to have some oysters, which were great, a salad and of course, a beer. My wife had a shrimp PoBoy. The staff is...More

The chargrilled oysters are their specialt I know, but couldn't believe how good they really are. Amazing flavor! Used every piece of my crusty bread & my husbands to sop up all the juice!

Drago's has that classic feel of a New Orleans style hall. Darkwood mahogany that makes you instantly want to pt an order in for rye/whiskey. Chardonnay goes better with the seafood, in my humble opinion. You should always order the chargrilled oysters-- and always order...More

We always go to Drago's when traveling to New Orleans. Best char-grilled oysters we have ever had. Shrimp and Oysters were delicious

This place came highly recommended. Beautiful ambiance and very spacious. Even the bar was huge, busy and nice to watch. We went for the famous charbroiled oysters. Our server, Rolondo, was absolute perfection! As a fine dining server at Disney myself, I can say that...More

Although it pains me to say, this restaurant is now just a tourist trap. There is a distinct smell to the place (and it is not the charbroiled oysters) of stale carpet. Experience was more than bad, food served with no silverware, disinterested waitress, messy...More

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
