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!

The service was top notch. The staff was very attentive and ensured that we enjoyed our experience. They brought over celebratory meatballs with candles to acknowledge our anniversary which was hilarious and thoughtful.

The food was ok. The atmosphere was ok as well. I don’t think I would try it again. I heard it was a great steakhouse so we wanted to try it. The cowboy steak was good. The potatoes were not. I did not care for the barbecue shrimps. The old fashion cocktail was good. The lemon drop was nothing fancy.

Best steak in New Orleans! Love the crab cake appetizer and the filet with crabmeat topping. Melts in your mouth good. Wait staff was great as always. We have celebrated our anniversary here for the past 5 years and love it every time.

An excellent place to have date night! We enjoyed the food so much. Their selection of wines is amazing, service was great. The only thing that I didn’t love was it was super noisy due to it being so crowded. But then again, we were there at 8:30 pm on a Saturday so I suppose that’s to be expected. We will definitely be back!

We have been there on several occasions and had a wonderful experience. This visit did not meet our expectations. It seemed too many big tables were crammed into the space and the noise level was too loud and could not have a conversation at our own table because of too much noise in the restaurant. Otherwise the service and food were excellent.

Potato was cold, the filet was undercooked, the butter for the potato was frozen on top of a room temp potato. The service was excellent from. They offered to return the filet and cook it more but I declined. I never return food.

Mr. John’s is always a must when visiting New Orleans. Food is delicious, service is great and the atmosphere is the picturesque of swanky old New Orleans. This visit did not disappoint. Filet, sweet potato soufflé, the list goes on and on you just can’t go wrong. We will definitely be dining with Mr. John’s on our next visit!

The ambience is supposed to be quiet, but we were next to two bday parties and one lady was drunk and obnoxious. However, we were not terribly bothered. We found her to be quite entertaining, but another customer was clearly upset. Otherwise, for our first time dining there, everything was great! The birthday meatball was divine! Bread pudding and Red Velvet brownie were on point.

Thanks 🙏🏽
