I Love the pasta here. The burrrata is also good. I’m not a fan of the tiramisu tho.

Kinda disappointing. Friendly professional service. Great wine. Risotto was good but not special. Dessert was disappointing. Lavender gelato tasted to soapy.

All the food was delicious and very reasonably priced for a downtown restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful but just a tiny bit on the noisy side and we were there midweek when is wasn't completely full. We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

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.

We went for our anniversary dinner. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. The only downside was that the waiter ignored our side of the restaurant when a big party came in.
