Steakhouse
Desi Vega, Rodney Salvaggio, Paul Varisco and staff, invite you to join them for a "memorable dining experience" at what food critic Tom Fitzmorris calls "The Best Steakhouse in the City." With regular visits from the Saints players and owners, most weekends are sold out. Mr. John's convenient location on historical St. Charles Avenue and valet parking makes for a pleasurable evening in the city!

We have eaten here before but this time we were Unable to have a conversation with my partners do to the extreme noise from other patrons who were unable to speak without yelling, these patrons showed no respect to others, so sad.
Wait staff not friendly at all, they seemed to have a chip on there shoulders like they were better than us.
However food was amazing and we will not be coming back, there are other great places to eat.

Made a reservation for 9:00. After we ordered appetizers we were told that we had to hurry up and order our main courses because they wanted to close the kitchen. They wanted our dessert order in the middle of us eating our main. Very unprofessional! They should not offer 9:00 Reservation if they cannot give you a good dining experience. They started closing while us and three other tables were still eating.

It was our first time being a New Orleans native and will NOT be our last. I took my wife for anniversary, it was little loud, but not to the point where we couldn’t have a conversation. Definitely recommend for a good night out with friends or spouse. Service was absolutely great.

The food was delicious, and cooked to perfection. Our waiter suggested that my granddaughter and I share the entree and the sides. We followed his suggestion, had more than enough to eat, and brought home leftovers! They serve huge portions!

Very enjoyable meal.

What could have been a nice dinner out was a disaster. The noise level was an assault on our ears, not because of any group, but the horrible acoustics of the restaurant. Food was excellent, as was the service, even though we had to communicate with our server by shouting. What a shame.

Lovely restaurant felt meal was rushed and when we finished they asked us if we needed taxi which I thought was quite rude, as we were just digesting our meal . It was my husbands 60 th and I emailed about a small cake or desert, they came through with meatball with candle in it not very appropriate I felt . Got the feeling they just wanted you to go after you ate .

We had a wonderful meal at Mr. John's Steakhouse and we now have a new favorite steakhouse in New Orleans. The steaks were cooked perfectly and cut like butter. Didn't even need a steak knife and have to admit, I even ate the fat which was as tasty as the steak. We've tried the other upscale steakhouses in NOLA and this was worth the Uber from the French Quarter every time. Our server, Boris, was friendly and professional. He made the experience all the more enjoyable.

Bartender does not cucumbers for gin martinis or cocktails (isn't this a rest?), crab cake was good, onion rings fried the way I like them but the marinade too overpowering and I like hot sauce, creamed spinach was bland and the Freddie mac with andouille sausage was too strong. The lobster tails and ribeye were right on...
