Fun and DeliciousWe had a great dinner for my dad's 82 birthday. Everything is top notch at Drago Centro. The only problem with the beautiful room was that is was quite warm.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSmoked sturgeon starter justSmoked sturgeon starter just superb. Excellent, attentive service.

Creative Italian menu4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant experienceThe restaurant experience can be perfect, but then can get off on the wrong foot when the host/hostess has an attitude or tries to give you the worst table possible when the entire restaurant is empty. When we asked for a table away from the patio, our hostess was not pleased. She made snooty comment and then gave us a beautifu booth. People are willing to take a "bad" table when the restaurant is packed and it is the only available table, but when you're given a bad table when there's availability of something better, it's plain bad business.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was very knowledgeableOur waiter was very knowledgeable on the entire menu and the busboys were extremely efficient in clearing our dishes.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother outstanding productAnother outstanding product from Celestino Drago-food was well presented, tasty and varied. Our waiter was superb as was support staff. Prices were high but fair and wine mark-ups were not exorbitant. The noise leevel was high til the crowd thinned out but not too bad for an LA eatery. We would defintely go back Thanks Ian Kramer4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever I work in the LosWhenever I work in the Los Angeles Office, I go to Drago. Their wine selection is very extensive, even the "by the glass" choices. When I was there the last time, I had the halibut and it was cooked perfectly. The portions allow you to enjoy an appetizer, entree and dessert. I am never disappointed!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDrago's CentroDrago's is a wonderful upscale dining venue with both an impressive wine cellar and a impeccable menu that changes seasonally to ensure the best quality food, every minute attention to detail takes you on a journey as your food marries on your palate and makes you yearn for more. One of the most memorable meals I have ever had. I do have to say though, as far as service goes, I found all of the employees EXCEPT my waiter to be most helpful.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDrago. Chic, Modern, Delicious.Drago Centro is excellent and pretty well-priced; we escaped with $125 for two people on a pretty robust order. Couple that with the chic, cosmopolitan atmosphere and we're already looking forward to our return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid all around. WonderfulSolid all around. Wonderful food with great flavor balance. Professional service. Food arrives quickly without a long wait. A pleasant dining experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Celestino TriumphThis was our first, but not last trip to Drago Centro. Fans of the Drago Group, somehow we had missed this one. Salad of apples, lardon, candied nuts and frisee was superb and outshined the beet salad in flavor. Our guest enjoyed the misto. Branzino, Salmon and Tuna were all cooked to perfection, and their accompaniaments were spot on. The only disappointment was the coffee. We would have enjoyed dessert, but we were on a theater schedule. Definitely a foodie hang, and the service was quite good and knowlegible.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood spot and location forGood spot and location for a business dinner. Wish tuyere would have been more moderate priced wines.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food near the Music CenterThe we shared a salad, I had seared tuna with roasted fenel and polenta, my wife had lamb loin, and we shared a dessert. All the food was excellent. The wine list is quite good with a large spread of wine prices. It is easy to find a good wine under $50. We had a Rosso di Monalcino for $48. They also have lots of good wines by the glass and small carafe. The carafes are 250 ML which would work well if you want to start with a white and finish with a red.
The decor is rather stark with lots of hard surfaces. We went early after an Opera Matinee so there weren't very many dinners yet and it was relatively quiet. However, it is likely that it could be quite noisy if they are busy.
It is convenient to the Music center.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI highly recommend Drago CentroI highly recommend Drago Centro for an upscale dinner. Great atmosphere, excellent food. Service was great but gaps between visits were a little long. Maybe that's the intention though.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was delicious andEverything was delicious and the service was prompt and efficient allowing us to get to the theatre on time.1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian foodExcellent service. The pastas and rissotto are definitely better than the fish dishes. The burrata was excellent. The server remembered us from previous visits.12/1/2012 12:00:00 AMLovethis place.
