Great location, food and service

Walked in off the street on a Friday night and really glad we did. It was very busy so we had a short wait but ended up in one of the small private dining rooms which was much quieter than the main restaurant.

Food was great. Service was friendly but so busy that they hardly had the bandwidth to give you personal service. But when they made an error they quickly fixed it without a hassle. The place indeed has a special feel to it making dinner fun. But it is also quiet noisy. Expensive.

Mr. B's New Orleans Barbecued Shrimp is divine!!!! It's not the typical kind of BBQ on the grill. It's sautéed in a decadent butter sauce that makes your tummy giggle! Plan to go back on my next trip to New Orleans! Enjoy.

If you are a shrimp lover, get the BBQ Shrimp at Mr. B's Bistro. Ambiance in the place is nice. Service was very good. I really wasn't sure what I was getting myself into by ordering the shrimp, I mean, I did see another lady with au jouis type sauce all over her fingers, but it did not seem to... More

Went with friends for dinner. Mr. B's Bistro is a very stylish restaurant, the food was excellent and service friendly and natural. I had Mr B's Barbecued Shrimp which was delicious! Definitely recommend this restaurant for families, friends or couples.

I went with a group of my friends during Mardi Gras. Our experience was really good - amazing service and fabulous food. One of my favourite meals in the French Quarter. (I had the rabbit!)

My wife and I are in New Orleans for a conference. Trying to sample all of the local flavors in a very short 5 days. We've tried food in several of the "recommended" eateries in the French Quarter. Last night we were simply looking for a nice quiet place to have a quality meal in a quiet atmosphere. Mr. B's... More

The ambiance, the menu selection and the service were all top notch. We ate a very late dinner, and most restaurants in the quarter close by 10pm, so they did a great job getting us our food and getting us out the door! But we didn't feel rushed. Our server was great, the food was timely and tasty. A great... More

We went during Mardi Gras and we didnt have to wait for a table. The service was amazing and all our food was wonderful. For sure worth going.
