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

From the time you walk in you have an expectation and excitement for quality food and service. I have been going to Mr. John's for years and the consistency of food quality, taste and preparation has never let me down. I recommend it to all of my friends and family. Thanks for giving me the best birthday present year in and year out...

From the moment we walked in (Greeted with “hellos & have a great evening) until the moment we walked (thanks for coming, please come again) out, felt like we were only ones in the room, Pampered comes to mind! The appetizers, steaks, fish & all our side dishes were outstanding! Can we talk about the bread pudding.... Dreamy!!

The steak was tasty however I ordered my Ribeye Medium Rare and it was cooked almost Well ... How can a quality Steakhouse cook a $46 steak that poorly... there were big tables around us so we were very neglected... We had to constantly stop the waiter or his assistant to ask for drinks, refills or to even clean our table... I’m sure this was just a accidental bad experience but it’s hard to spent $225 on a meal for 2 people and walk away dissatisfied... probably won’t be back unfortunately...

Went with a group and were seated quickly. Service was great and knowledgable of the menu. Apps and main course came to the table at reasonable enough time so we could have great conversation beforehand. Food tasted amazing with zero issue with temperatures or any other problems. Price was fitting to the service recieved.
Overall great experience.
