Food and service were really good. Bartender is awesome. It’s a little dark for my taste and the pricing is a little high but we’ll definitely be back.

While most of the dinner was great there were some major problems which is why we will not be returning for a while. All of the food was great except for one filet that did not taste right that they had to remake. From the beginning the the manager wasn't kind or friendly about it but rather rude. Then it took 30-45 minutes to get the steak remade and by that time the rest of the party had finished their meals and half the party had left. I'm upset because I wanted to like this restaurant as new alternative to Ruth Chris and Crescent City Steakhouses. When we paid we told the waiter that we knew it wasn't his fault and he was kind of rude about that but, thats what happens when someone does not a good leader to look up to. I think this restaurant has great potential but needs a new manager.

Food was top notch and service excellent. We ate off the main dining room which we asked for since it is more relaxed and quieter.

Great service and meal. Steaks prepared on the rare side with perfect sear. Be careful as the steaks are served on a hot plate directly from broiler.

Went with a group of 6. While the service was excellent, the food was way below average for a "prime" steakhouse. The Veal chop was not good at all, nor was the bone-in ribeye that we ordered. Full of grizzle and not tender. The appetizers and deserts were good, and the service was excellent. Extremely disappointed and will not recommend.

The food and service were great but felt like we were put in the casual dining area. As soon as you walk in to your left right next to the bar and entrance. My chair was practically in the aisle to the entrance. I would only recommend if you were put in the better dining area. Was a little disappointed in the atmosphere.

Mr. John's never disappoints. We started out with the fried green tomato and crab meat appetizer which was fabulous. Hubby had the filet and I had the fresh gulf fish of the day which was pompano. We ordered the asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes as our side dishes. Everything was delicious.

After making reservations almost a week in advance, my husband and I were looking forward to a nice steakhouse dinner experience. We arrived in time and were seated promptly. The first thing we noticed was how loud it was. We basically had to use our outside voices in order to carry on a conversation. The waiters all seemed very rushed. We ordered and they forgot my salad. It seemed as they were unapologetic. And when an apology was given, it still seemed fake. Spoke to the manager and he was just as indifferent. This was a damper on our whole evening. The food was good, but the ambiance and service made it an undesirable experience. We’ve received better service at our local Outback Steakhouse than this place. Maybe because we are not locals, the service was indifferent. Needless to say, we were very disappointed and will not dine here again and will refer our friends and family to other places. The money you spend is not worth the lack of service.

Considering we had two servers, I expected great service Unfortunately we never received the appetizer we ordered and we received the wrong salad. We don’t like to be complicated so we didn’t complain. The food was very good but I would have expected better service considering the price.

First time visit to Mr. John's and had a great experience. Our waiter Gendi took great care of our group and remembered we were there to celebrate a birthday. It's not often we don't have to ask the waiter for an extra utensil, water, etc.... We didn't have to- the staff was on top of service. Because the restaurant is know for their steak, we ordered filet mignon and one of the special large T bones for 2. We also included salads and varying sides. The steaks were well seasoned, tender and tasty. The wine selection was rather extensive and offered alot of variety. I think this is one of the best steak houses in New Orleans.

Awesome! Archie the Maitire ‘d was extremely courteous and sat us down in a nice corner of the restaurant with great visibility. Our waiters preformed parallel to Archie’s service and courteous hospitality. The cocktails are superb and the steaks phenomenal.

A first class establishment!

Had been to NOLA many times and happened across a review of Mr. John's so gave it a try. The food was EXCELLENT and the service was EXCELLENT as well. Will definitely be going back on my next trip. Liked the fact it was a smaller restaurant and not as loud as a lot of famous ones in the Quarter.

We had spent the week in New Orleans were planning on leaving the next day and thought it would be nice to have a pleasant dinner at this wonderful little restaurant.
We were not disappointed in our choice. From the time we stepped into the pleasant atmosphere to the time we walked out- our every need was attended to and in a very nice fashion. Congrats to the wait staff and greeters for the restaurant.
We also enjoyed a wide variety of choices of foods and really enjoyed just about everything we ordered. There was one small hiccup in this - my wife ordered the seafood and pasta dish of the evening; while most of the meal was great - the lobster meat contained within the dish was very much overdone and really was not up to the standards that the rest of the facility had shown.
We did not let us take away from our experience. It was a pleasant evening and nice way to finish off our week in New Orleans.

The food and service is good but restaurant itself lets it down - tables very close together, noisy, nothing special, similar as other places around expected more for prices being charged. The food is good (not exceptional)but for the price would have expected nicer restaurant setting and overall experience

Reservation was easy to make.
My daughter and I went for dinner.
When we arrived we were immediately taken to a nice table and were assisted by a waiter who was knowledgeable and friendly.

The meal was superb.
Highly recommend both the strip and the ribeye.
Ordered both medium rare. They were cooked perfectly and delicious.

The onion rings are thin, crispy and not to be missed. The garlic mashed potatoes were better than the steak fries but both were very good.

Stay away from the bbq shrimp unless you are a big fan of Worchester sauce.

A little pricey but well worth it. I intent to return often.

Thanks Mr Johns
