I am absolutely amazed at how amazing this food was! The steak melted in your mouth. The shrimp appetizer was amazing and the coconut cake was so moist! Our service was great. He was the only one in the back dining room and having to manage many tables at once, but I never felt that our service was lacking because... More

After a long day of traveling and a nice long walk, we decided to eat close to our hotel, Harrahs, so easily made a reservation at Besh for dinner. We were quickly seated in a comfortable two person booth and greeted shortly thereafter by our server. We always order a bottle of wine and were shocked by the mark up... More

Went in on Christmas night 2016 - it was very busy but they were prepared for us exactly at our appointed reservation time. I love when a restaurant can keep their reservations on time. We have eaten here several times in the past and have never been disappointed. We started with the BBQ Shrimp which we excellent, then moved on... More

This is our 4th or 5th visit to Besh. It's a wonderful steakhouse, no rush, great service. On this trip we found an updated menu that included some seafood and local Louisiana cuisine. From the special appetizer of crab claws with lime sauce, to the filet and the wonderfully light lemon pound cake with fresh berries, we had a splendid... More

The meal was great, we had their steak and shrimp. The drinks were also very good. The service was fast and the time we had in between courses were very well timed.

This place has great food and is located in the Harrahs hotel. The table service is great. However, they have a host at seating who is terrible to customers.

As others mentioned, this place is not cheap. For the occasional dinner outing, it is a lovely restaurant to spend the evening. The restaurant is open for dinner only. Best to make reservations ahead of time as you may not be seated if it is fully booked for the night. Wait staff are very attentive and accommodating. Food is good... More

I booked this based on TripAdvisor and recommendations from the chef's other restaurants. However I had no clue it was located in a casino or I never would have reserved it. The waiter was really accommodating but the food mediocre. Not at all what I wanted for a special Christmas dinner experience.

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.
