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!

Food and service were amazing! It was quite loud as some tables didn’t understand how to use inside voices. But we throughly enjoyed our meal! Will be going back this week!

First time to eat here. Best strip ever. Creamed spinach, roasted Brussels sprouts, and fried green tomatoes are all a must get. Will, our server, was very attentive and engaging. Plus his recommendations were on point and delicious.

Very excellent food, but dining room was very crowded and noisy. Waiter rushed us all through service...I guess so they could seat more people. Very annoying. Overall it was OK, but I expect a better experience for those prices.

I have been to hundreds of NOLA restaurants over the past 25 years( I live in the area) but had never been to Mr. John’s. Someone recommended it and I went there the other night. It is now my favorite NOLA restaurant . It’s a steakhouse but seems to have an Italian orientation. We were presented with a delicious meatball amuse-Bouche, then had salads and filets. These were as good steaks as I have had anywhere in the city, and I’ve been to all the steak houses. The atmosphere is old school, tiny little bar that is dark and romantic; it’s almost like a tiny Galatoires in the main dining area. It’s like a relic from another era. I love this place!

By far my favorite steakhouse in New Orleans. You feel like family when you’re there, the steaks, sides and apps are superb, and the lagniappe meatball in red gravy is money!

If you haven’t been, you gotta go!

This was our celebration dinner for 25 years of marriage. Even though it was mentioned on reservation, never acknowledged at restaurant. Our waiter Tony was efficient but just gave us the feeling he was not happy to be our waiter. But the others that was helping him were great. ! Our steaks were cooked perfect and the sizzling crab cake was excellent. The Mac and cheese with crawfish and sausage were the guys favorite.
The bottle of wine we chose was fabulous.
We finished off our dinner with great dessert, chocolate peanut butter dessert, wow.

This used to be my favorite steakhouse in the city. Before they opened Desi Vegas it seemed their steaks were better. Also since traveling elsewhere around the region their pricing is out of whack. We regularly sent suctoners here, now not so sure. Maybe it was a night off but for $250 for two pineapple I don’t expect a bad night.

One of the more expensive steak restaurants in NOLA but I still think they are the best one around. Ruth's is also good but Mr. John's is close to our house and easier to get to. One special occasions when we want steak we always go to Mr. John's.

Restaurant was extremely cold. One patron had to ask to turn down fans. I just dealt with it. Food was decent, but not decent enough for price. I’ve had a better cowboy ribeye at Longhorn Steakhouse. Drink (pineapple screwdriver) was as well. Service: 2 servers. One was subpar while the other one was great and very attentive.
