DELICIOUS NEW STEAK PLAYER IN NOLAFrom the valet to the table the service was wonderful. The food was exceptional. My wife's crab cake appetizer bursted with pearly white jumbo lump and was served on a butter sizzling plate. I had the Who Dat shrimp and highly recommend. They take shrimp and stuff them with jumbo lump then wrap them with bacon and drizzle with a creole mustard and Thai sweet chili sauce. We each had a ribeye that couldn't have been cooked more perfect. I liked the simple seasoning of salt, pepper, butter. First side dish was crawfish, andouille Mac & cheese. A must have. Our second side was creamed spinach which was as good if not better than any I've had. We skipped dessert.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit and we willOur first visit and we will be back. The steaks, crabcakes, salads, and creamed spinach were fantastic. I found this restaurant because of Open Table. When I travel to cities like LA and Phoenix, almost all restaurants are on Open Table. In New Orleans many are not. They are making a mistake. This is now my favorite Steak House in New Orleans. This now tops Mr. John's for me. Free validated parking is great. That does not happen even across the street at Herbsaint. The service was excellent. If you want a great steak in New Orleans this is the current winner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss This!Food was wonderful. Steak is a MUST.

Bone-in-filet? This was new to me, and was outstanding. My GF and I split the filet and the twin lobsters. Filet was perfectly cooked med-rare, lobsters were tender and a great flavor. Creamed spinach was good, but typical.
Definitely a must visit.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant!My favorite dish (fried green tomatoes) and the best steak in town - together at the same restaurant. Can't beat it. My wife had never been before, but she loves Mr. John's. She left Desi Vega's saying it was better than Mr. John's.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for our anniversary.Went there for our anniversary.

The amuse bouche was a meatball in grandma's marinara, and it almost made me cry it was so tasty. We had salads, filets, mushrooms, and onion rings, and it was all divine. Didn't get a chance to look at wine list because we brought a 97 Dominus. We enjoyed the great atmosphere created by the staff and Desi working the room.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I've had in New OrleansBest steak I've had in New Orleans. Service was exceptional and the food was smoking hot. I had a medium rare ribeye steak. I couldn't have asked for a better meal. For appetizers, we had lobster tacos and the fried green tomatoes with jumbo lump crab over the top. The wine was excellent. Very energetic scene. Mark Ingram came in later in the meal with his family and had a great time with the wait staff. Highly recommend.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only knock in the serviceMy only knock in the service is that maybe the staff was overly attentive.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding! As good as MrOutstanding!
