Came to New Orleans for 3 days. Our dinner at Mr B’s was 1 of the highlight meals my husband had the BBQ Shrimp. I had the shrimp and grits. The dishes were clean when we were done the warm French bread served with the meals is the absolute bomb!! So so delicious!

What a disappointment. The food was good — definitely not great — but it was brought out so quickly that it’s clearly not made to order. The overall service was inattentive. Water was never refilled, Bread was taken away even though we had ordered additional dishes finding ourselves hungry after the meal. We decided to cancel our reservation for the following night at one of the partner restaurants after this underwhelming experience.

Excellent food. A little noisy but not horrible. One minor hiccup where they forgot to bring my coffee, but waiter unexpectedly comped our check. One of my favorite places to go in the Quarter.

I LOVE Mr. B's, it is consistent with cuisine as well as service! Every time I get to NO, they are top of my list to dine. My favorites are the BBQ Shrimp and Gumbo YaYa, which is a chicken and andouille gumbo. Always on point!

Shrimp & grits are always on POINT! Plus the Signature Bloody Mary drinks were only $1.50. How could I be disappointed. I also order the Salty Dog. Dean accommodated my request and turned it into the Sweet Dog. Thanks for never letting me down Mr. B’s Bistro. Oh, last but not least, the fried crawfish salad was phenomenal.

Very accommodating to my wife in a wheelchair. Entry and exits in New Orleans are usually difficult or impossible. They opened a side door to enter and escorted us out the back due to high steps in normal doorways.
Food was excellent. We will be back.

I had big expectations for this restaurants based on previous reviews. Service was just ok. You definitely feel rushed. I ordered their specialty dish, the barbecued shrimp. It had great flavor, but the sauce was cold. I sent it back, and they reheated just the shrimp which didn’t need to be reheated. I wasn’t about to send it back again. Seeing that it’s one of their specialty dishes you would think they would have that down. We had the fries with truffle oil which were delicious. My husband had a fish dish that he thought was nothing special. Unfortunately we could not recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food and service. This is an upscale restaurant so dress nicely (no t-shirts and shorts). Very busy so we were glad to have made a reservation. Despite the packed dining room, the service was superb and the pace of the meal was perfect. We tried the mushroom ragout, seared scallops, and seafood gumbo appetizers then moved on to the bacon-wrapped shrimp (highly recommend), salmon/scallops and grilled fish entrees, all excellent. Save room for dessert. The lemon pie was delicious and light. The pecan pie with vanilla ice cream was by far the best I have ever had. It was dense, warm, slightly spicy, with a perfect flaky crust. The servers were all wonderful and although I was skeptical going in based on some luke warm reviews, my group was really impressed and I would put this on the top of my list of NOLA restaurants.

The best food I have ever eaten has been in NOLA. My tour guide raved about Mr Bs and in particular the bacon wrapped shrimp and grits. It was my first time having grits and the meal at Mr Bs was one of the best I've ever eaten. Nice restaurant. Slightly upscale but absolutely worth the price.

Mr.B’s is still my favorite restaurant but my bbq shrimp was tepid. I can’t even say it was warm. Also, the sauce was not as flavorful as it normally is. The staff was very attentive and curtious.
