    This was an amazing expediency. The New York strip was prepared to perfection. Tough to do with an 1.5" thick steak. The plate was still sizzling 5 minutes into the meal. It kept our entre hot throughout the meal. The Mac and cheese with sausage was the best I've ever had. Spinach salad was ample for two and delicious. Creme brulee was cracking on top and melt in your mouth creamy below.. the brownie a la mode was unexpectedly amazing. Great restaurant!

    Great Steakhouse in NOLA - however we were sat in the small front room and not the main dining room and that took away from the experience. The food and service were both excellent, however the ambiance wasn't nearly as on par with the main dining room. It's always been a bit of a fancier restaurant, and my wife and I were dressed as so but were surrounded by tourists in sweatshirts. Don't let that take deter anyone from dining here though, the food speaks for itself.

    We celebrated my son's 29th birthday there last night. We had a wonderful time. Our table was ready and Lance & John took good care of us. The food was very good (as usual) I appreciated Lance remembering our names and also, bringing out a round of "birthday meatballs" with a candle. We will definitely be back!

    This was my first visit at Mr. John’s. The service from Lance was amazing. He was very nice and informative. The food was top notch. We absolutely loved the Porterhouse for two. The wine selection was large, but Lance was able to help me choose the right one. Picayune was delicious. Overall, we will be back time and time again. This is a must visit restaurant. 10/10

    Food was amazing we started off with a crab cake and crawfish bisque, entrees was two broiled lobster tails, porter house for 2 one side was actually better than the other, the steak was very flavorful and bold one side was just to meaty or thick idk to much about steak, but the other side was very tendered, for sides we did creamed spinach, Freddie Mac and cheese and asparagus, we also did the la mode brownie everything was fantastic, the food, services and ambiance, we will definitely be back

    Service was good at first, but after we received our steaks from the runner, we did not hear from or see the waiter until we had to flag him down for the bill. My steak was underdone and my husband’s was over. Never checked once to see if we needed anything or to see if everything was ok.

    Food was mediocre and not cooked well, had to send a steak back twice because it was so undercooked. Soup, salad, and sides were meh. Service was fine, nothing special. Valet parking was incredibly slow. It was the least impressive meal and dining experience we had while visiting New Orleans. Would not return.

    I gave the food 2 stars because one of four entrees was well prepared. The other three were so over cooked they weren’t edible. The service was poor. This was such a disappointment as I’ve heard good things about this restaurant. I’ve been going to New Orleans for over 30 years regularly, and I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. Especially for a $300 meal before tip for 4 people with no alcohol. Hard Pass
