Drago Centro Ratings and Reviews
Consistently delicious food. Service is great from beginning to end; very helpful wait staff to keep our concert date on schedule. Be aware: construction in DTLA can cause detours so plan a little extra time to get there in time for reservation, then relax and enjoy the food!
Food was too salty. Our waiter was too solicitous - seemingly wanting us to order more food after we ordered. Not an unusual practice, but he did it too much. He also took our signed cc bill while we were still enjoying our dessert which is not very professional.
A group of office friends and I celebrated recent birthdays at Drago and took advantage of the DineLA menu. Dining at Drago is always a pleasurable experience, but I must confess, it doesn't wow me the way it did when it first opened. Especially the DineLA menu, which like many other participants is only two courses these days, was tasty but not outstanding. We will continue to visit on occasion, and hope to rediscover some of the early Drago magic.
We were "showing off Drago to our friends" and we were all so pleased. You are our #1 favorite in LA. We live in Laguna Niguel, and do dinner and the LA Phil. Makes for a
great memory evening. thanks for treating us so well. And Alphonso was a fantastic server.
I have been to Drago several times and am never disappointed! This visit was to take advantage of DineLA for lunch, and while I didn't think the menu selection was great, for the price it was adequate....although a bit of dessert to end the meal would have been nice!
The service was good as always. The wait staff friendly and knowledgeable, the environment very open and clean.
We moved to the bar area after lunch, stayed awhile for cocktails..firepit and people watching, great way to end a relaxing afternoon!
One word of caution, if you park in the attached parking area watch the time!!! Parking may well cost MORE than your meal!!!!
this was my first time at this particular location. I brought out of country guests . made reservation way in advance. it's a very busy, too large for my taste, restaurant. perfect for after work dinners, drinks, hence the downtown business district location.
We were three women and the host ( didn't get his name, tried to give us the worse possible table, in the most traffic area. I found it rude, as there were plenty of nicely located table. but he moved us immediately, when we expressed our dislike.
The waiter was Alright, not too helpful with wine selection. The food was good, although, the menu isn't as vast as in the other locations.
I much prefer other Draco locations, in Beverly Hills and Pasadena.
Service was very poor. The food was just ok. The food might have seemed better, but we had to much time to think about between service. We started with a waiter and he disappeared after taking our order. From then on, it was us with various bus boys that would notice our lack of service. 25 minutes from the time they took our salad plates till they brought out Special of the night steak, left it behind the table next to ours for 5 minutes before they came to carve it table side . Not once did somebody come to ask if things were to our satisfaction. The man in the kitchen does not know the difference of ordered medium rare to serving extremely rare. 20 mins after we finished eating did somebody think to ask if we were finished. 10 minutes again till somebody would ask if we like coffee. 15 minutes later they'd ask about dessert. 15 minutes before dessert came. Empty coffee cup on the table, dessert without coffee. 25 minutes more before they asked if we would like the check. When I tried to tell the manager that the service was poor, he did not even ask how, he just turned and walked away.
I’m from OKLAHOMA City. If you want world class steak and some of the best steak restaurants in the world, come to my city. But we lack great Italian. We don’t even have GOOD Italian, so I gravitate toward eating at Italian restaurants whenever I’m in a major metropolitan city like NY, Chicago or L.A. Tonight what I loved about Drago was A). Gorgeous restaurant without having to be dressy. Beautifully appointed. B). The menu was not overwhelming but gave a lovely variety of traditional & non-traditional choices. C). The timing of the courses was perfect. Nothing arrived before it was supposed to, thank you! D). Everything we ordered was delicious and thoughtfully plated. I started with the Crudo (sushi grade yellowtail with grapefruit segments & fennel and some “dots” of a yummy sauce. My daughter & I split the Farfalle w/vodka sauce (fantastic), and then I had the Branzino, which was cooked perfectly and not a bone to be found....My daughter devoured her salmon and her boyfriend’s truffle crusted chicken Breast must have been terrific since it was devoured completely. We had the vanilla panne cotta with roasted pears and the “donuts” for dessert. Simply divine. If I lived in downtown L.A. this would be a regular stop for me. The wine prices per glass were fairly steep, though. Maybe that’s just L.A.
