Fantastic experience, wonderful food and excellent service.
I've been going here for 30 years and sometimes it is perfect. Sunday was good, but just not perfect. Maybe it was just me, but I was feeling the usual vibe. However, it's still a GREAT restaurant and I'm sure next time it will be worthy of its usual perfect score!
It was overall very good food ,ambience great but service was really only average and a little slow
Food, as usual, was first rate. Service, on the other hand, was quite poor. He was polite but, when you feel that you have been forgotten in a restaurant, there is little that can overcome that experience. Especially one as expensive and with a reputation as good as Mr. B’s. Not sure if he was a waiter in training but we weren’t offered additional drinks, there was a long, empty period waiting on a dessert. Our coffee cups had long been empty by the time it arrived and we had to ask for a refill to drink with dessert. Just an unnecessarily grueling dining experience. We waited for the check but eventually had to ask for it. Then waited so long that another waiter picked up our card & cashed us out. The food was great, the restaurant is doing its part to serve patrons safely. Just disappointing.
Extraordinary Saturday evening meal and service from Ken, JC and Kenderick. The cheese plate and duck springs rolls were the perfect starters after a long day of travel. A vegan option for one of our party was quickly crafted by the chef as an off the menu item. The market fish was perfectly prepared, and was the bacon wrapped shrimp and grips. All and all it was a pleasant and relaxing three hours....no rush to turn the table.
Wonderful food! The Gumbo was excellent good dark roux!! BBQ shrimp delicious and bread pudding divine.
Excellence as usual.
The total experience was good. We were greeted appropriately and shown to a table in the bar section. We were a little disappointed to see that the dress code was not being followed and while I do not really care if someone is wearing shorts, a dress code does lend to a more upscale clientele. The service felt a little rushed and I was disappointed in our appetizer. This may have just been what I ordered, so I won’t base my opinion of the food on that. My entree was amazing. Could not have enjoyed it more. Upon reaching desert... my expectations were again not met. I understand that during the last year many establishments have made cuts to staff and service which has resulted in subpar experiences, but for a restaurant of this quality I really expected better.
Excellent service, food and cocktails
They always honor your reservations. We have never waited to be seated. The service is friendly and personal. Terrence is the best! Someday he will be the manager!
Great food and excellent attentive service. A favorite
Excellent food and excellent service! Would definitely recommend.
I liked that I had two waiters, one of them seemed to be totally aloof and disinterested in what he was doing except for when we paid the bill and wanted to see his tip (19%) . I figure if you're going to keep charging Mr. B's normal pre-covid pricing, you need to bring back Mr. B's pre-covid service. Bring back the table cloths - it feels very Bistro-ish, and warrants a deduction in pricing if so.
Always a treat to dine at one of our all-time favorites. Just feels like coming home. The food, and the service were exceptional. Thank you Michael and Dwayne for taking care of the ladies at lunch🍴❤️
Food and service were excellent. They were very busy but the atmosphere was still great. Our server never rushed us and gave us great service.
food was fantastic, the service was great and the prices were reasonable! We will come back when we are in New Orleans again!
Great food and service. Our waiter was awesome! Karen did a great job
My husband loved his Filet Mignon, and I had Red Fish smoked grilled which was delicious. To top off the meal we had the Ice Cream puff pastry with fudge sauce very pleasing to the eye as well as the palate.
A great Bistro ideally representative of New Orleans. Outstanding food and service.
The same Brennan family has operated this unique Bistro for over 50 years.
We were a party of 4 celebrating our son’s 44th birthday. Our son was greeted with birthday wishes and we were immediately shown to our table which had a birthday balloon waiting for him. The evening was wonderful!
We have been dining at Mr B's for years, but due to the pandemic, have not been dining out as much as in the past. It was great to see that this restaurant has not missed a beat during all the recent turmoil. The service was excellent and the food impeccable. It is truly a great place to dine.
Mr. B's is always a treat. The food is delicious, the service is awesome and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Have never had a bad meal at Mr. B's.
The barbecued shrimp are worth a visit on thier own. The restaurant is a classic and ambiance is great, I would just like to see some innovation to the menu.
A lovely evening with excellent food and great service. Doug and Kristina took such great care of us and we will be back very soon.
Hadn’t been in years, but Mr B’s never disappoints. Classic NOLA.
Fred is the man!
Fabulous lunch. Will for sure return
The gumbo root was burnt and the service was slow! I been coming here since my college days it’s just not the same.
Mom daughter weekend
We had a wonderful supper at Mr. B’s. The BBQ shrimp was great and the service superb as well.
Fish with Popcorn pecan rice was delicious! Highly recommend.
Mr. B’s is my family’s favorite restaurant. This visit was a disappointment with the food and service. The hosts were amazing, but our waiter barely paid us any attention. I got the Buffalo chicken salad and it was awful. The chicken was super greasy. The lettuce was hot and drenched in warm dressing. I’m certain it wasn’t supposed to be this way, but our waiter never stopped by to see how our food was. It made me sick to my stomach, and with no desire to return.
Great lunch menu.
We loved everything!!
We were welcomed into a very friendly atmosphere. My wife was on a handicap scooter and they escorted her through the back. We had two amazing waiters. Food and drinks were delicious. Awesome location in the French Quarter. It was a wonderful dining experience, would go back!
We took our first trip to New Orleans since getting our Covid Vaccine. I couldn’t wait to eat at Mr. B’s as I’ve dined here so many times over the years. I had (as almost every time) the Barbecued Shrimp. And it was heaven in a bowl. The service was wonderful and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. So happy I made this reservation.
So happy to get back to my go to spot in the Quarter. Just like I remembered. Really good. Been dining here since 1987. Just a great restaurant. Gumbo YaYa and shrimp & grits. Boom. Done.
Best filet I’ve had in a while. Great place! Got stop by when you go to NOLA
We love Mr. B's. We had lunch and then went back for dinner!
Never a disappointment. Always good and reliable.
