Desi Vega, Rodney Salvaggio, Paul Varisco and staff, invite you to join them for a "memorable dining experience" at what food critic Tom Fitzmorris calls "The Best Steakhouse in the City." With regular visits from the Saints players and owners, most weekends are sold out. Mr. John's convenient location on historical St. Charles Avenue and valet parking makes for a pleasurable evening in the city!

Superb steaks and attentive service. Fair selection of wines by the glass and would like to see a more extensive offering. The porterhouse is everything you want in a steak and more - sides are skillfully prepared. Worth every penny.

My husband and I both agreed that our experience was okay. The crab cakes are absolutely delicious however, my “Who Dat” shrimp were burned. I was disappointed because I heard great reviews about the shrimp. Our steaks were seasoned well but my husband wanted his to be cooked a little longer so he sent it back. The sides were tasty. I had cream spinach and “Freddie Mac” and my husband had a loaded baked potato. Lastly, the ambiance was great! We had the restaurant to ourselves at 8:30.

My husband and I shared the Porterhouse for 2 and it could have been for 3 it was so big. Unbelievably delicious, the steak just melted in our mouths.
Our servers Will and Tony took such wonderful care of us. We were celebrating our anniversary and the waiters brought us out a signature meatball with a candle to celebrate us.
The whole experience was amazing.

All over New Orleans there are perfect bites of food like a Drago's char-grilled oyster. I would put the Amuse-bouche here, a small meatball and a piece of garlic bread, as my favorite. It makes me cry reminiscing about all the great southern Italian I have eaten. That's reflective of the care that goes into all the food here. The steaks are perfectly done, which you would expect. But yesterday's soup, crawfish bisque, was transcendent. The Old Fashion's were strong, the brownie alamode insane, and the service was impeccable. Ultimately, I think this is the most decadent food in New Orleans and that is saying a lot.
