    The food and atmosphere was amazing! The staff was very attentive! My wife and I were on our honeymoon and I let the staff know ahead of time and they went out of their way to make it a special experience for us! We both loved it!

    Mr. John’s steakhouse was a great experience. We enjoyed everything from the appetizers, drinks, and the entrées. The restaurant itself is a little noisy, but that’s due to being on a busy street like St. Charles Avenue. Overall a 9.5 out of 10 experience, will definitely be trying them again.

    One of our favorite restaurants for birthday celebrations and the holidays. The service is excellent, food is always consistent and delicious and the ambiance is wonderful. We always finish our plates. Highly recommend the surf & turf, fried green tomatoes and the onion rings. Mac & cheese and creamed spinach - yummy!! Shout out to Tony - he always takes care of us.

    Mr. John's steak house is a special place to have dinner. We greatly enjoyed everything, and the valet parking was nice feature mostly because we really no longer feel safe in New Orleans so we rarely come to the city. But a dinner at Mr John's is worth it.

    This was once my favorite steakhouse in New Orleans but it seems to have really gone downhill. Appetizers were cold, the barbecue shrimp was so full of vinegar that it overpowered everything else, the who dat shrimp were wrapped in so much bacon that I couldn’t even find the shrimp in the center. Steaks were served on such a hot plate that my medium steak ended up well done. Having known this I would’ve ordered it one maybe two temperatures lower. Ruth’s Chris and LaBoca are much better choices if you’re looking for consistently perfect steaks.

    We’ve been to Mr. John’s quite a few times over the years, but this was the first time that our order was completely messed up: steaks not cooked as requested and wrong sides. However, the food is still phenomenal.

    Always great food and great service. Crab cakes are our favorite appetizer, but there are many other good choices. Hard to pick between the steaks; all are wonderful. And there are other good entrée choices as well. Be sure to leave room for one of the great desserts.
