Went for lunch with co-workers. We had an 11:45 reservation and were seated quickly. Server came and took our drink orders and it all went down-hill from there. The restaurant wasn't that busy but it took our entrees forever to arrive. We got our two appetizers in a fairly timely manner but the entrees took an eternity! We only ordered tacos for our entrees so that should not have taken very long... It appeared there were only 2 servers for the whole restaurant not counting the bartender. We told the hostess and our server from the very beginning that we didn't have too long of a lunch break. We got back to our office (only 10 min. away) at 1:30. We will not take another chance on eating lunch there for this reason. I never saw a manager the whole time we were there either.

A good experience overall. A little pricey for the food we got but it wasn't too bad. Everything tasted great. The waitress was okay, every now and then she would disappear when we would need something. The drinks and desserts are pretty good.

We love the food the service and ambiance.the lettuce wedge was delicious the gumbo was seasoned just right however it seemed to have some greens cooked in it which I have never had before. They were a little stingy on the French bread served with the grill oysters Our b’day girl was surprised with a great brownie dessert with 4spoons ! We would choose it over seafood places because it is authentic and the oysters seem fresher and larger the price is very affordable .

I invited some of my business associates for lunch to discuss some perspectives from our company. I made reservations to ensure seating was available for our party of seven. We arrived early(11:21) prior to our specified 11:45am time. We were seated at 11:25am. Our orders were taken for appetizers and entrees at 11:32am. At this time I noticed there were three other tables in the restaurant of patrons and they were already enjoying their meals. After sitting for 45 minutes, I requested to speak the manger and she explained to me that this is considered normal wait time. While she is stating this, I am pointing out to her that when we arrived, the other three tables were already eating their meals. There were 16 other groups who walked in after us and their food was served prior our food being served. She had not response for my comment. Our food did not arrive to our table until 12:35pm, which was an hour and three minutes later. Also, when the food arrived to the table, my guests who ordered pasta seated that their pasta was cold, and the other guests who ordered po-boy sandwiches stated that the lettuce, tomatoes, and shrimp were just thrown on the plate and did not seem to be placed on the sandwich. At this point, my guest and I were ready to leave. We called the manger back over to detail our concerns and wanted her to provide some elucidation or even an apology to us concerning our subpar experience. The manger became rude and condescending and blamed our experience on us. I asked her how could it be our fault for placing an order for food, having to remind her and our waiter that we haven’t received our food, and then after waiting over an hour that the food being cold is our fault. We did not want anything for free. All we wanted was a simple apology. We will never return to Drago’s due to the horrible mismanagement of this establishment. We appreciate the manger being transparent and showing that she not concerned about customer’s needs.

The fire roasted oysters were outstanding-garlic butter, parmesan and breadcrumbs!!! Catfish and fried shrimp entrees were tasty but overpriced.

The food and waiter was great. I just thought that it would have been more of a romantic spot for me and my husband to spend our anniversary. The atmosphere should bring more of a romantic feel to the clients.

The hostess appeared to not want to be there at all. However our waitress was outstanding! The food was okay. The price point was okay. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant personally but I wouldn’t say no if someone wanted to go.

They were very accommodating to our group of ten. Ordering and service went smoothly. Most of the food was good. The most expensive item we ordered was the whole lobster and we’ve had it before at other places but this one was not very good. We enjoyed everything else but not the lobster. Very bland; chewy and fishy. I would reccomend everything else that we tried and the service.

Service was very good. We were there to hear Greenfish which we thoroughly enjoyed so we asked a table near the band. Food was good and servers were on top of things.

I made this reservation for an anniversary dinner. We arrived 10 minutes early and I mentioned we had a reservation. The restaurant was not busy but the hostess didn’t even look up the reservation. She ignored the request I made for a private table, even though some were available. She sat us in direct sunlight at a table meant for six. We waited 10 minutes before our server came to get drink orders. When our food was brought out, mine was the wrong entree. No attempt was made to rectify the situation and we never saw a manager for any apology or anything. It was not the special occasion dinner we wanted.

The service was great but food was not good. Red beans and rice were too salty and spicy. Chargrilled oysters were very small. Oyster pasta dish lacked much in flavor and the oysters were way too large for such a dish. Drago’s is usually better than this.

The service was fast and friendly. They have an excellent bar and drinks are reasonably priced. We went there for the charbroiled oysters - and they met our expectations. I had the lobster which was cooked perfectly and was accompanied by some well seasoned roasted potatoes. Overall it was a nice dining experience.

The food was just ok. I’ve always wanted to eat here but I’ll admit I was disappointed. The charbroiled oysters were great. The Drago’s Grill seafood mix was blah. Over cooked. Over sauced. Just not good. The filet that came with it was bland. I was disappointed.

All was good except for the Oysters Voisin. It looked like a n entire jar of parmesan had been dumped on it. I tried scraping the excess, but the taste was overpowering.
My friend had the chargrilled oysters. I'd recommend these over the parmesan heavy recipe.

Did not have our reservation ready. We arrived an hour early and let them know we were there and went to bar area. They had someone seated at one of our tables and about ten minutes before our reservation time, seated a couple at our second table. I went and spoke to managers and they were terribly rude. Finally asked second couple to move after I insisted I wanted the table I had specified. We went and sat down and finally first table left as they had been finished for over thirty minutes. Had to ask for menus. Managers NEVER came over to see how we were, etc. Can see why this place is going down. Easy not half filled on a Friday night.
