Diner Reviews
  • "Terrific recommendation from our hotel staff. Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The steak was very good, but this was not a fine restaurant by any means. And for the price of the food, everything should have been top drawer. The side dishes were ordinary. The atmosphere was ordinary. In New Orleans, the stakes (no pun intended) are higher because much of the eating is so well crafted, and the atmosphere is hip, not tired. I did not see those qualities here. The meal is good, but the price is too high for that."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Mr. John's has the reputation of being the best steakhouse in town. And based on the food and service quality, I would probably tend to agree. Will I be returning? NO! $4 for a little Bernaise sauce and $7-9 for side dishes (if you want anything to go with your steak) is RIDICULOUS!!! I'm sorry, but the ambiance does not warrant that kind gouging. I walked away feeling like I'd been had. It ruined what was supposed to be a wonderful evening."

  • "The Who Dat Shrimp appetizer was excellent. The Gulf Fish of the Day, grouper in this case, was light and delicious. The Andouille, Crawfish Mac & Cheese was an absolute oily failure. I ordered a blackened ribeye, but received a New York Strip. As the waiter placed the dish in front of me, he said out loud "here's the blackened ribeye." There is no confusing the two cuts -for me, or for a server working in a steak restaurant. He assumed I was ignorant. He intentionally lied about his error. However, the steak was perfectly medium rare."

  • "The service and the food was awesome. Highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our experience, however, as we talked later we both noticed but said nothing about our server Gindy who mentioned my husband's birthday but never asked or offered any specialty item. We also noticed that the table of ladies next to us received some special small cakes because of someone's birthday. We felt put off by his demeanor to us. Not sure why and therefore, his tip was a bit smaller than we usually give."

  • "The restaurant was all I hope it would be and the service was excellent. I will certainly visit again if I can get a reservation, which was the most difficult part."

  • "Unbelievably delicious steaks. Exceptional service. Who dat shrimp appetizer were "lick the plate" delicious. Crawfish & andouille sausage macaroni was over powered by the smokiness of the andouille. Creamed spinach was average. Onion rings were good, but nothing special. Could've done without the cannoli. Expected it to be cold. Would go back because of the perfectly cooked, melt in your mouth steaks & above par service, but would try different sides."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The service and food was great. My only complaint was that it was loud. Great view of st Charles. The staff treated us great."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Purchased a coupon from livingsocial because I live in the area and always wanted to try it out but heard it was expensive. It really was not expensive at all and the food was unbelievable. The steak was cooked perfectly and was frankly the best NY strip I've ever eaten. My date had the filet topped with crab meat and the portions were amazing. I will definitely be back here when it's time to treat ourselves again."

  • "Mr. Johns is one of the absolute best restaurants in New Orleans. They have the most attentive wait staff, sizzling steaks, veal, and definitely a great atmosphere. I drive almost 2 hours weekly to eat this restaurant, and never regret doing so. "

  • "The evening was very nice, food, drinks, and employees were great."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We have eaten at many restaurants in New Orleans and this is by far the best steak we've had. It was my husbands birthday, I had put that in the notes of the reservations. He was told "Happy Birthday" by several of the wait staff throughout the evening. The service was incredible, I can't say enough about that! We ordered the onion rings for an appetizer. They were delicious, not greasy as many onion rings are. The steaks were cooked to perfection. We did ask them to leave off the butter, as I think a filet is rich enough without the butter. We ordered the bread pudding for dessert and they brought it to the table with a candle in it. Overall the evening was incredible! We will definitely go back next time we are in New Orleans! "

  • "One of better dining experiences-ever. Well prepared food, great service. Offered compliments to the chef, I was taken to the kitchen to deliver my remarks."

  • "I had important friends in town celebrating the passing of a huge Bill and I knew we would get extra special attention at Mr. John's. Our waiter Justin was top notch once again, the house special for the night included a few amazing salads and a savory soup but the filets were the best I have had in the city and in the top five of all time. Cooked to perfection melted in our mouth, one with crab meat was loaded down with crab and the creamed spinach was quite special but even better when spears on the garlic bread. Chef Rob came out to say hello and check on the table several times and had a few special treats for us that made the celebration quite special."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The ribeye was perfectly done and delicious. Split a spinach salad which was just right and the sausage crawfish mac and cheese was one of the best sides we have ever had. Both the salad and the side was large enough to be split easily. We were seated right on time and the service was prompt and courteous. The cost was what you would expect from a top line steak place, not any more than Ruth's Chris or Dickie Brennan's..I look forward to returning to try the white veal rib chop."

  • "My boyfriend and I had a pre-theatre date Saturday night at Mr. John's Steakhouse. He knows the owner, Mr. Santopadre, and has been many times before, but it was my first experience. To my delight, prior to placing my order, I saw my friend Robert Bruce's name listed on the menu as Executive Chef. I have been long time friends with he and his wife, Peggy, as all three of us were in the same grammar school class. I didn't mention his name when placing the order, but upon exiting walked through the kitchen and was delightfully surprised to see Robert and get to visit with him for a brief moment. Thanks to all for a perfect dining experience!!"

  • "This is one of my favorite places to eat in New Orleans. Very easy to get to and the food is great. The service is excellent. This is truly a grand experience."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "No real need to rehash the exceptional experience I come to expect from Mr. John's, but a few things were new and notable. The special appetizer was a perfectly seared scallop covered with jalepeno stuffed andouille sausage with a wonderful sauce drizzled over the scallop. A great effort by the new chef. Cowboy rib eyes for my friend and me along with the lyonnaise potatoes and mac and cheese with crawfish and andouille. Just perfect."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "I made reservations online and noted that I was taking my husband out to dinner for his birthday and the staff came out with a meatball with a candle in it which I thought was special. Also, the food was fantastic!"

  • "Mr. John's has been at or near the top of all of the " best steakhouse" lists for New Orleans. Even though we live close, we had never eaten there. What a mistake! The food was wonderful and the service excellent. One of the best steaks I've ever had! We also really appreciated a big wine list with reasonably priced wines. A wonderful experience!"
