Excellent service as usual! Porterhouse was delicious and perfectly prepared. Wedge salad with the most delicious blue cheese dressing, the broccoli au gratin was so good and I loved that the broccoli was still crunchy and not too soft. The red velvet brownie was divine.

The food was quite good. I ordered a ribeye medium rare, and while nearly half of it was cooked to medium status, the remainder was medium rare and delicious. Our waiter could not have been more gracious under the circumstances that brought my wife and I to New Orleans. He brought us samples of the house meatballs and sauce decorated with a candle for my wife and then treated my wife to her Tiramisu for dessert.

Amazing experience, we sill definitely be back. Can't think of a better place to go for Valentine's day. The food was very high quality, the waiters were world-class; not letting us lift a single finger to do anything. One of the best stakes I've had in the city. 10/10.

Although we had an early reservation and the place was empty, we were seated by the bar next to the side entrance. The Ribeye steak was overcooked,not medium rare, and was fatty and gristly. My steak was overcooked also. The potatoes were hard and undercooked. The service was good, but sometimes hard to find . Not the quality we expected from a good restaurant. We were very disappointed.

We arrived 20 minutes early, doing room was very empty. I understand the art of service and timing, the hostess said I checked you in and will sit you as soon as table is ready. No other acknowledgement as we were just feet away and the only ones waiting. Needless to say we actually had to wait until 7:35 would have had a drink at bar no room was available.
A large table of loud women sat before us then they of course assumed because we were two women they would seat us there until we pointed out that we were looking for a romantic dinner.
Once seated Boris was amazing, he was personable, professional and a great addition to the restaurant. No manager table touch, food was good. Steak cooked to desired temp and French onion soup flavorful, seafood bisque flat and watery.

My wife and I went on a casual date to Mr. John’s which was a fantastic evening. Our waiter suggested the most delightful red wine to pair with the filet and lobster tail.

Disappointment with the Porterhouse for two. When we visited last, a metal plate was used and the steak continued to cook after serving which allow for very rare cuts for my husband and medium well for me. This was not the case this time around and it was very rare throughout. The fries and creamed spinach were outstanding as was the complimentary meatball.
