Ended up having a tight connection so missed lunch. Pulled into the Hilton Riverside and stopped here for refreshment/re-feeding. Restaurant is huge. We got the grilled oysters (although we usually do raw) and they were fantastic. Drinks were well done, Cosmopolitan and Sazerac respectively. Service...More

It looks like a regular loby hotel restaurant, but the food is spectacular. I ask for the catch of the day, obviously Cajun Style. It was awsome!!! Ver good taste, and very good fish. Someone else in my table ask for lobster and oysters. Both...More

The food was delicious and well seasoned. I tried charbroiled oysters for the first time and it wasn't bad considering I don't like raw oysters. Beers were $7.00 each, and I had a Swamp Water (their signature cocktail) and it was $13.00 in a fairly...More

Waited for an hour for cold dinners of poor quality to arrive. Broken restrooms, noisy and not very clean. Will never go back. Wanted to celebrate my daughters birthday and left before dessert. Not recommended at all.

My husband was not an oyster fan until he had the ones from Drago's. He liked them so much we had them multiple times and was encouraged to try them at other venues.

My wife and I spent three days in New Orleans before boarding the American Queen. We returned to the hotel and decided to eat in its restaurant because we were too tired to go out one evening. The food is good but the service is...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
