Both my husband and I had appetizers that were excellent, although very large. I had the fried green tomatoes with crabmeat and he had shrimp and crabmeat. Unless you are really hungry, it is not a bad idea to split the appetizer. His filet was excellent, cooked to perfection and the side of gratin potatoes were very good. My spicy... More

We were tired from a 10 hr drive. This was near our BNB. Wife not really a steak eater, but I am. They were full, but seated us at the bar. Even laid out placemats, etc. We had a deep fried soft shell crab w/ slivered almonds and butter. Wow. Mrs. had a house salad which was fresh mixed greens... More

Enjoyed a great meal with 4 people. Nice setting and excellent menu options. It will be our new favorite steakhouse in New Orleans. Valet parking which is nice for an uptown restaurant. The food was served very promptly, but the waiter seemed to want to rush us and turn our table quickly. A bit snippy with responses, but efficient. The... More

This little gem of a steakhouse on St. Charles is wonderful. We wondered i, under dressed, with no reservation, and they graciously seated us in the bar near the fabulous French fireplace. Service was five star as was the food. The steaks lived up to the price, and the gulf fish special (Mahi Mahi/ not a gulf fish :)) was... More

It's seldom my wife and I get to sneak out and eat just the two of us. We did manage just once to make it to Mr. John's. She had the filet mignon, which she described as superb. I had the ribeye, which was juicy, tender, and cooked to perfection. Paired with a good merlot, dinner was excellent. It's just... More

The steaks have seem to gotten bigger. I had the filet and it was delicious. The calamari appetizer was smaller than all the previous times I went but still delicious. I highly recommend this place !

Although there is a dress code men had on suites ladies dressed, but my sister and I have been downtown and were dressed casual. The restaurant was booked but they seated us at the bar for dinner and I might say some of the best food I have had in New Orleans. The bartenders were so nice and made us... More

We came back to Nawlins for vacation (last visit was in May 2015) and I specifically booked Mr. John's for our arrival night since we had such a great experience last time. The food is still excellent -potato soup had a little kick to it, and my chicken was decadent. Husband didn't like their "signature" New York strip as the... More

I would consider this a place to eat for a special occasion. Not just to drop in for a quick bite. All though the food was very good and excellently prepared--it was over my budget.

My sweetheart and I reminisce weekly how much we loved our dinner at Mr. John's. I wholeheartedly disagree with another reviewer that stated it didn't live up to the hype. Our realtor recommended this place and it did not disappoint in the slightest. Our waiter "It's like Cindy with a G" (maybe Ghindi?) made that night so exceptional we're counting... More
