WE had the redfish on the wood grill, it was cooked to death and super dry. It came with rice but the waiter told us it came with asparagus. We can't eat rice and the waiter shrugged it off and said well we would have done double vegetables if you had ask. My husband ate his and I had a couple of bites it tasted like smoked cardboard. We boxed it up with a fresh loaf of bread paid our 100.00 bill and delivered it as we walked back to our hotel to a homeless man. New Orleans covered up with homeless laying all over the street near them. It was not a good experience at all. The waiter was very attentive till he could tell we did not like the food.

I loved my red fish but my mom had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp was over cooked . It was too expensive to have a mistake like that. My mom is 73 and just didn’t want to complain. Overall, I enjoyed it.

Crab cake and gumbo were outstanding, shrimp bordelaise were ordinary, iceberg salad very good. Enjoyed chicken entree, but could have used more sauce.
Over all good experience.
I would not order the shrimp bordelaise again.

I love Mr. B’s, I go every time I am in New Orleans. The food is A+ and I love the ambience, but it seems like they are understaffed on the floor. I had to flag down the waiter to get our food order 30 minutes after we sat down, but it was worth the wait.

My husband and I were celebrating 39 years of marriage. With SO many other commitments that weekend, we thought we’d not get a reservation. But with Opentable we were able to have lunch at one of our favorites.

This is my first trip to the bid easy. Everyone told me that I had to try this restaurant. I had a reservation and the food was just okay. The wait staff was very nice. It’s not a place that I would recommend to someone to visit. There are other restaurants in town with better tasting food.

Ok food but service was completely impersonal and more typical of a discount diner. Basically a Turn & Burn operation. By far my worst experience of an entire week spent visiting 5-star restaurants in New Orleans.

I would recommend Mr. B's for the truffle french fries alone. My friend and I agreed that they were the best we've ever had. And it was a huge portion - we did not think we would get through them but we could not stop eating them. I had filet mignon - cooked perfectly. Great staff and vibe and overall a fabulous dining experience.

Went for lunch and had the Barbecued Shrimp as an appetizer so we could still have room for the Fried Chicken and daily fish (which was a wonderful drum). The food here is always delicious; the $1.50 Martinis at lunch are fun; but the service is what brings a diner back again and again. A warm "thank-you" to Otis who made our experience special!

Not up to par! We have been to this restaurant at least five times, but this time the service and food (redfish dish) were less than satisfactory. The grilled redfish was over cooked, tasted burned, and was bland - had a dark streak that covered half the fillet too. Seriously doubt it was fresh Louisiana redfish as stated. Definitely wasn’t fresh. Sent back once for being dried out, but second piece wasn’t much better. The Brie salad and trout almandine were exceptional dishes. Barbecued shrimp were small and a few were mushy. Almost like different chefs prepared our meal. Service wise- we had to ask for bread which is typically served first. BBQ shrimp were cold when the bread arrived. Also no warm towels or clean napkins were provided which is pretty standard in fine restaurants that serve BBQ shrimp. Had to ask waiters to clear empty glasses - shouldn’t have to ask for this! Bottom line- next time we have a special occasion to celebrate we will dine elsewhere!
