We love going to Besh Steak every time we go to Nola. We love the bar here and always look forward to seeing Patrick and Mark. The bar is a great place to eat and watch the casino action. The food has always been great (my favorite is the pork chop) and the service and conversation always excellent.

Nice steaks, pretty tasty in a nice comfortable atmosphere. They had a full bar inside the restaurant as well. The service was very nice and it is a little on the pricey side.

Held a quiet business meeting in the Besh Steakhouse at Harrah's. Actually it was a good place to meet and was unaccompanied by too much noise. An enjoyable experience.

As usual food and service were wonderful. Truly enjoyed our server who was a young lady from Russia. She was attentive, pleasant and efficient. Can't wait to see her again.

We chose Besh because it was an upscale place and we like to eat pretty decent at dinner. We were about 30 min early but they were able to seat us pretty much right away. It was a little dark for reading the menu but not a huge deal. Honestly cannot remember everything we ordered. My daughter-in-law had a salad... More

Second time we've ate here, was not bad at all. Steaks are good but really expensive.....has a seafood dish that was very good along with fried oysters which were awesome.

We ate at Besh twice during our week-long stay, the food was so amazing. Everything we had was to die for. The barbecue shrimp appetizer, tthe beet salad, the steaks, the short rib raviolis, the jalapeno grits, and the crab and corn risotto all were so good that we practically fought over them. They also had a nice wine selection,... More

Incredible steak and seafood. Great service and never felt rushed. My blackjack dealer recommended it and she was right. Didn't hurt that the casino comped the meal.

Description
In its dazzling contemporary setting among the bold iconic canvases of George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog, Besh Steak is not your traditional steakhouse. 150 rich brown leather seats, some in private curtained booths, are set among crystal puddles of azure blue. A sleek, backlit wall of wine bottles is flanked by a glowing amber bar and an open brushed-silver kitchen. High-rolling guests and food critics alike will be swept away with the cool dining grandeur at Besh Steak in Harrah's New Orleans. Please note that you and your party must be 21 years or older to enter.

The restaurant melds Chef John Besh's devotion to local Louisiana ingredients and techniques with traditional steakhouse menu items. Wine and spirits are also an integral part of the dining experience at Besh Steak, with hand-selected cellar choices to accompany each dish.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
