    Attractive restaurant, good menu variety, excellent service from Alton. Seafood jambalaya and bacon wrapped shrimp and grits were excellent. Fried oysters were OK, but mainly tasted of batter. Gumbo was excellent. Disappointing cocktails. Both of our cocktails were bland/weak. A lot of money to pay and the canned bacardi cocktails back in our room tasted better. We were at the carousel bar earlier and had fabulous drinks. So these were Disappointing. When we left, I looked at my watch and realized we were in and out in 45 minutes. We didn't feel rushed, but we couldn't believe we had drinks, apps, a meal and paid so fast.

    The vending started out great, we were early to our reservation and were seated right away. Once seated two of the three-person service team welcomed us and brought water. After that is was downhill. We sat with empty water glasses and dirty plates for an extended amount of time. We are extremely disappointed with the lack of attention we were given. Thankfully one of the servers, Akin, was attentive towards the end of our dinner.

    A flounder that was fishy and a redfish a little over cooked. The sauces are boring and some tasteless. Crab cake was excellent but luckily didn’t need the sauce. Will not go back.

    Waiter spilled my cocktail on me, was helpful with napkins, but offered no dry cleaning coverage. Had to find the manager myself for this accommodation. Positive the parmesan panko crusted flounder was not flounder. Never had a flounder fillet as thick as a steak with and minus the delicate texture of flounder

    I ate at this restaurant 15 years ago and it was fantastic. Honestly the service was excellent but the food was awful. For example the seafood Gumbo was almost inedible and my red fish was dry. A sin for cooking any fish especially at a restaurant with Mr. B's Bistro.

    I've had "dinner at Mr. B's" on my list of things to do for about 20 years. Flying in from Fort Worth for the day, I made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday. The experience did not disappoint. From the gentlemen who greeted us at the door and showed us to our seats to the lovely wait staff, the service was excellent. The meal was paced well and we were able to catch an Uber to the airport with no worries. I had the bacon-wrapped shrimp and grits and Dave had the filet. Both entrees were delicious. The filet was a perfect medium rare. The cook on the shrimp was just right and the grits plus red-eye gravy were a symphony. We finished the evening with a King Cake that put all those grocery stores' King Cakes to shame. Warm, rich, and delicious with a hint of what I think was anise. A thoughtful mini serving of bread pudding and a birthday candle rounded out the evening. I look forward to another dinner sooner than 20 years from now.

    My husband and I were celebrating a special occasion and were referred to this restaurant due to their good food and great service: I will say, the food was amazing, but the service, not so much. Drinks and appetizers came quickly, however we waited a little longer than usual for our entrees, when we enquired with our server, he came back with cold entrees as if they had been sitting out for a while (entrees that he insisted were warm, by the way), and we asked that they be warmed up at the least. When we finally did receive our entrees, they were delicious, however, our server was nonchalant to the situation, we went to settle our bill, but again, our server ignored us until we asked another server to cash us out, at this point, our original server disappeared from the floor and was nowhere to be found. Overall, the food was great, a server’s assistant, Jeremy (who, turns out, was not even assigned to our section), was wonderful and made our experience worthwhile, but our server was not that great. I would recommend the food, but hopefully your server doesn’t ignore you, spoiling the whole mood of what would have been a wonderful dinner service.

    For our first trip to New Orleans Brennan family restaurants had been recommended by friends and family. We made reservations at Mr. B’s after advice from our hotel front desk and it only a few blocks away. We could not have been more satisfied with our experience. Definitely will pass on the same recommendation to anyone we find out is visiting the area in the future

    It's a classic French Quarter restaurant, but it is crazy. Food is decent, but don't expect a "dining experience of a lifetime". The chaos of the restaurant and the frantic pace of the servers left us feeling rushed and barely had chewed a bite before the next course was in our face. There's also little time for any relationship with the servers, as they were off to the next table before we could even get a word out. It's a nice restaurant, but just lower your expectations if you plan on it being a "memorable culinary moment".

    Mr Bs is always a stop for us over the years when visiting NOLA. It’s hit and miss to be honest but the good meals keep us hopeful. The bar drinks are not good! If you want a craft drink like Old Fashion or Manhattan…NOPE! Wine and Beer or maybe rum and coke. Staff is good. Fried oysters and the Flounder and popcorn rice were amazing!
