I'm not normally an oysters person, but you must get the char boiled oysters. They are often compared to Dragos but I think the oysters are better. I had a large group, 9, and the staff was knowledgeable and easily handled our group. Everyone's food tasted great and we were all presently surprised.

We had a group from work to go and I was really looking forward to it. Everything was good but I think lasagna is not their specialty. You pay $17 for a small square and it was not impressive at all. I don't think they used any spices in it at all as it was basically bland. The service however... More

Delicious drinks to begin, were partnered with the bread course. The chargrilled oysters have an amazing red pepper garlic butter that rocks the shells!!! Hubby had the ribeye as his entree. The...

I've been in Houma on business frequently over the past year and have tried nearly everywhere. The food here is great - especially the barbecued oysters! Lots of different sea food and pasta dishes, and the steaks have always been cooked perfectly. If weather permits, they have a very nice outdoor area, occasionally with live music. The bar evokes Cajun... More

Every time we go to Christiano's it's a special occasion. Even if it's just for lunch. Great menu with classic and specialty Italian dishes. An excellent wine menu. The ambiance of the old building or the courtyard for after work cock tails. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner with your significant other.
