We have been to steakhouses all over and we were not impressed at all. It was my boyfriends mom's 75th Birthday and she received a meatball with a candle. The hostess was not welcoming and I have never had as many up sales on the menu as we did at this place. Last time we we were in New Orleans... More

Have seen this restaurant advertised for some time. Finally went with my husband for lunch on Friday. We had the first reservation at 11:30. The decor was very nice, the tables covered with white tablecloths and napkins. We were seated right away. Our servers were quick to ask us for our drink order and take our order. While we waited...

I'm not kidding. It isn't just that they have fabulous steaks, they do. Or even that your server will seem like an old friend, they will. Everything from the time you enter straight through the valet service having your car ready as you step to the curb. I just love this place. I'm sure you have a favorite like this.... More

My wife and I have wanted to try Mr. John's for a long time and we did it last night. You pretty much need a reservation, so don't delay. It doesn't look like much from outside, at least at night, but it's beautiful inside. It looks and feels like an upscale steakhouse. Please don't think of coming in shorts. Respect... More

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

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
