Mr. B's never disappoints. Restaurant Week menu was on point - variety, quality, and generous. $1.50 drinks are delish as well.

This place is always great.
Food is wonderful, service is attentive without being overbearing or pretentious.

I come to this restaurant every time I am in New Orleans and always find something new on the menu.

Very highly recommended!

Couldn’t have been better. The food was excellent, truly. And the gentleman who served us was excellent as well. Very friendly, conversational, and took great care of us from a dining perspective. Couldn’t have asked for a better dinner. Go with the Fried Oysters for an appetizer, and the BBQ Shrimp for your entree!! You won’t regret it!

My wife and I have been coming down to New Orleans at least 2 or 3 times a year just to eat good food. We do not drink alcohol but love to eat. We have been to all of the Brennen's restaurants and lots of times at Mr. B's Bistro but this last time was the worse experience we have had down there. And as we were waiting for our uber to arrive several couples came out the door making compliants. Our table was right next to the counter that contains the utensils and waiters were hitting my arm every time they came to get new utensils for the tables, so that table should not be there! Also, I ordered the porkchop and it was so tough you couldn't cut it with a steak knife. The waiters and waitresses were loud and very unprofessional in their actions. Miss Cindy needs to come to her restaurant and see what is going on for herself before she loses all her business. We certainly won't be back. Thank you! Carolyn Whiddon

Great bbq shrimp & French bread as always. One in my party got the puppy fish. Wasn’t a fan. Snapper is much better. Service was fabulous and all other food in our party of 6 was outstanding. Gumbo was super yum. Can’t wait to return here!

Mr. Bs is a great restaurant I’ve been to several times now and it never fails to amaze me with its great food and service. Went there with my boyfriend for his birthday and the balloons waiting at the table and birthday themed menu made it extra special, would highly recommend.

Great Bloody Mary. It was a quintessential New Orleans vibe, excellent service yet laid back. We were there with our older daughter and our younger daughter and both were happy with the food and the ambience. I had the luncheon salad which was crisp and flavorful along with the mussels. We were there for Coolinary and were very happy with the quality and quantity of food. Great value. Again, the Bloody Marys were amazing!

I paid for this meal in advance for my daughter and son in law on their honeymoon. The Staff was way more than helpful and everything went perfectly for the couple. They very much enjoyed themselves and couldn’t complement the food and service enough. By far our favorite restaurant in the State!

Birthdays at Mr B's are a tradition that we are always delighted to continue and this visit was exceptional.
There were balloons on the table when we arrived and the waitstaff gave us the star treatment. The food was excellent as usual. We tried one of the specials and it was divine. From start to finish a perfect night!! Thank you for making my birthday special!!
