Brennan’s Family hospitality and service are well represented in Mr. B’s . It was a bit loud but it was Sunday brunch on Fathers Day.
My go to place for out of town visitors

Overall, did not meet my expectations as s first-timer given the hyped reviews I’ve seen for years. The YAYa Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, supposedly touted as one of the top gumbos around was a disappointment, the meat was tender with rich goodness, but the roux was over cooked leaving a burnt after-taste. The pasta jambalaya was served in a bowl of flavorful broth but otherwise was nothing exciting.

In another city, I would give Mr. B's a top rating; however, comparing it to surrounding restaurants in NOLA I didn't find its food up to the standard I enjoyed elsewhere. Very good, just not excellent.

Loved the relaxed feel of this brunch spot. The mimosas were tasty but not much better than an average Sunday morning diner. The French bread was absolutely delicious- crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The crab cake was delicious but I was surprised there was not a frittata on the menu so I opted for the eggs. The service was great. Lovely brunch spot but I expected more for the money.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Mr. B's! He had dined here previously while attending a company meeting and highly recommended it. Our reservations were for 5:30pm. We arrived at 5:15pm and were politely asked to wait. At 5;20pm we were taken to our seat by a window which was perfect for us. James and Sarah were out waitstaff and were superb. The food was served hot with little to no wait time. It was delicious. Thanks so much for such a wonderful experience. I cannot wait to go back.

Our waiter was extremely curt, bordering on sullen. The gumbo I ordered was inedible; pasty tasting. This is the first time I ever sent food back to a kitchen! I think the waiter was expecting this reacting to the gumbo, as he noticed immediately when I put it aside and came over to pick it up, never questioning what was wrong with it's

This used to be a favorite restaurant of mine. I will provably not return.

Asked for out-of-the-way table (important business lunch), and was seated in closed section—perfect! Salmon was likewise perfect; chicken in my salad a bit over cooked and tough, but tasty, and gumbo was good. Claire and Rocco provided excellent service without being intrusive. We’ll return.

Excellent food and service. Whenever I visit NOLA this is a must. Went for dinner and lunch. Enjoyed pork belly and pork chop at dinner. Lunch was eggplant fingers and pasta jambalaya. Delicious! Also found a nice perk of complimentary dessert when eating a solo lunch. Berry cobbler was delicious too!
