The oysters were great and the service was very good. I think it needs better quality furniture for tables and chairs. Overall we enjoyed the food and would dine here again!

I was partially confined to the hotel due to a storm but the variety at Dragos made it more than tolerable to say the least...several wonderful salad options that make me want to go back for more.

We loved their char-broiled oysters and gumbo. We have compared their oysters to a couple of other local restaurants and rate them the best!

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

I think like $20
Hi, Geaufrog: Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Drago. Do you still remember what is the name of the entree with the rice on top and red sauce on the bottom. Thank you very much
