The food was amazing - we will definitely be back. Loved the atmosphere as well. From the yummy onion ring appetizer to the red velvet dessert. The steak was cooked to perfection!

I was told this was one of the best steak restaurants in the city, so major let down. We felt extremely rushed for our table. When I’m spending $100 on two steaks I expect the dinner to last longer then 25 minutes. I’ve never seen food ever come out faster. We will not ever go back.

This was my very first time here. The service was amazing. The food was incredible and best part was They had the LSU game on so we were able to watch the incredible win. I could not have asked for a better night.

Mr John’s is quite noisy. However, this is true of most steakhouses and just about every restaurant in New Orleans. Aside from that, this restaurant was just about perfect. Great service! The steaks were outstanding and perfectly cooked to order. Decor is classic. I will return whenever I’m in New Orleans

Mr. John's is a great steak house most of the time. This time the filet was dry and overcooked, not typical. All the other food was excellent. meatballs before the meal are always great. Excellent salads and creamed spinach. My wife's veal was very good. This is a very loud place, but fantastic service

If you are looking for an exceptional steak, tasty side dishes, service beyond expectations, then Mr. John's Steakhouse is your dining place. I'm sure the other entrees are equally good, we have never tried them. It's a STEAK HOUSE!

Food was excellent. Great steak. Salad was very large - too large to be part of the steak meal. Nice setting but did get loud when the room filled up.

I think it was a little expensive but the meatballs and steak were very good. My husband didn’t care for the fish. The sweet potatoes were really good but the top was a little over cooked. They didn’t really put us in the restaurant, more like a little lounge area so I felt like I didn’t get the full experience even though I was paying full price. The wine was good, the service was excellent. The tables around us were so loud and the people at the tables really ruined the experience because they were fighting and drunk. One guy stormed out...not the restaurants fault but just not the experience I was looking for on my 30th birthday. Also, we did put in the reservation that it was my birthday and they didn’t mention it like most places usually do.

This restaurant charges USD 220 with tax and 20percent tip for a small filet mignon, a cowboy steak , 3 small helpings of sauce and three side dishes. We came at 8 pm had no dessert and we're thrown out with the staff shutting off the lights at 1030 pm. It was our most expensive and least memorable meal in New Orleans. The day after I grilled a 2 pound t- bone I had matured in the fridge for a week and that tasted much better for a cost of USD 31 for the meat.

Food and staff were very good . Steaks were delicious. Apps were very good. I really enjoyed the pork cheek ravioli. We had fun with the waite staff, making dinner so much fun as they helped us celebrate a birthday. I will positively go back.

We were celebrating a birthday and our experience lived up to our expectations... beginning with our perfectly crafted cocktails! The steaks were all cooked exactly as requested...medium rare, medium, and well done. The sides were heavenly! The service was very good but not quite 5 Star. Mr. John's always delivers the traditional "steakhouse" experience!

We really love eating at MJS. Steaks are great (prime). The wine list is good, and price per bottle is better than average. The desserts are excellent. When they have soft shell crab they are the best...wish they had them more often.

On arrival we were greeted by the maitre d' . Our steaks were cooked to perfection and we were visited again by the maitre d' to be sure all was as expected. I have lived in NOLA for over 40 years and I can't believe I haven't come here before. I will definitely return. Better than Ruth's Chris'.

When my servers were present they were very nice. The food was terrible. Didn't know it was possible to ruin a crabcake with lump crab. Bbq shrimp was also horrible. I loved the sweet potatoe Casserole. Honestly, I probably should've gotten a steak from a steakhouse. So I blame myself!

So I had a Groupon and reservation that I could not use. I work at Children’s Hospital so I gave both to a doctor friend. So my friends went and they did not receive bread and meatball, my husband and I always get that almost as soon as we are seated. Their waiter, JT, was not attentive, didn’t smile or engage with them at all. He also brought them the bill without giving them the opportunity to order dessert?! They wanted dessert so he had to adjust the bill. I felt awful that I even introduced them to your Restaurant. I tried to assure them that this is not normal for Mr. John’s.

Truly was disappointed in the steaks, for the price too much $$
Tough and chewy honestly for Prime Steaks
Not worth the ticket price
Enjoyed the Steak Fries they were the best part of dinner!!

Have been to this establishment a few times and it never disappoints. The service is very welcoming, from the valet to the hostess and waiters. The waiters are extremely attentive without interrupting. The steaks are wonderful - expertly seasoned and cooked. I never order filet but upon trying someone else’s on my last visit, I HAD to get it. Turtle soup and French onion are rich and comforting. The fried green tomatoes w crabmeat was really tasty, packing a tanginess and not being greasy. I must say I am envious of the table next to us who got a massive lump crab crab cake. It looked like it had zero filler. If you go you MUST get the sweet potato soufflé. I have been making and eating these as long as I can remember and this is without exaggeration the best one I’ve ever had! 5/5 stars
