Excellent service from beginning to end felt very welcomed! :-) the drinks were good a little fruity and the crispy calamari was excellent in the bar, perfectly cooked Papadalle could have expected a little bit more pheasant but it is what it is, the waiter split the plate for us without even asking which was very nice. Truffle chicken was the most tender flavorful chicken I've ever had in my whole life green beans nice and crunchy, squid ink pasta also was cooked perfectly al dente we had the hazelnut desert very good I was stuffed at that point lol.

I’ve always enjoyed dining at Drago, unfortunately service hasn’t been what it used to be. Not sure if staff is spread too thin or it was just an off day. My friends thoroughly enjoyed the Branzino and caprese appetizers but the linguine vongole was disappointing. Pasta was too over cooked and clams were small and tasteless. I’m planning on returning but not for that entree.

Went here for a friendly business dinner. Food and service were good, although portions were small. A little disappointed about the fact that one of our party was a vegan, and they seemed kind of baffled when asked to suggest choices for her especially dessert. It was a cool place though for downtown. Would probably go back next time in LA.

Have been to Drago many times....This was the worst meal ever. Starting with the menu so small to sending back two dishes that we could not eat. Yuck. For four of us, we wanted to share two pasta dishes to start. Asked that the chef put a little on each plate. Nope...would not do. Please be aware the restauant was 3/4 empty on a Tuesday night! So we split it when they came to the table. Steak was so mushy, you could not eat it. Beyond tender...mushy. yuk. My octopus was so salty you could not eat it and I love salt. The donuts were raw inside. Chicken tasted only like garlic and nothing else and the scallops had sand in them. The bill was 288.00 before tax. Give me a break.....

First time visit. Great food, great service, great venue. Would be 5 Stars but bar service while waiting to be sat could use the same excellent service as the restaurant. Overall a great place. Will definitely be back.
