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!

Great atmosphere. While my husband and I dressed up, there was a wide range of attire. We enjoyed our appetizers but were extremely disappointed with our bone in ribeye. It's supposed to be prime grade, but we had to saw through it for a bite. They did get the temp correct at medium rare, but the meat just was not tender. They offered to cook another, but we declined because we just don't think it was a single bad cut/steak. Our server was a bit slow, aloof, and indifferent to our concerns.
That was our most anticipated meal of our trip and it left much to be desired.

First time visiting an food was outstanding. One of our steaks was undercooked hit it was promptly corrected and the steak was great. The only thing was we were wanting the red velvet brownie and it showed online that you had it, but when we ordered dessert we were told you didn’t. However the other desserts were outstanding. Definitely will be back!

My girlfriend and I ordered the New York Strip on recommendation of the waiter - he told us it was their signature steak. when It arrived at the table, it was done as requested (Medium +), but it was dry, not moist inside.

Service was very good, but the steak definitely left something to be desired.

I have been to hundreds of NOLA restaurants over the past 25 years( I live in the area) but had never been to Mr. John’s. Someone recommended it and I went there the other night. It is now my favorite NOLA restaurant . It’s a steakhouse but seems to have an Italian orientation. We were presented with a delicious meatball amuse-Bouche, then had salads and filets. These were as good steaks as I have had anywhere in the city, and I’ve been to all the steak houses. The atmosphere is old school, tiny little bar that is dark and romantic; it’s almost like a tiny Galatoires in the main dining area. It’s like a relic from another era. I love this place!
