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!

Mr. John’s never disappoints service was great and the Porter House was excellent. I will say that the New York side of Porter was tougher than normal. Filet portion melted like butter !!

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.

Other than Open table telling me the table was ready as we walked inside only to be told by the hostess that it wasn't. We waited about 25 minutes to be seated. Once seated Boris took EXCELLENT care of us. The Filet was phenomenal and the onion rings were to die for.

Our dinner was outstanding! We arrived at 7:30 and we're promptly seated (advance reservations are a must!). Our table was in a nice little nook, away from the center of the floor and not crowded in the slightest. Our waiter Mark (I'm terrible with names so this may be wrong), was PHENOMENAL with his service. My friend and I felt insanely comfortable with him, and he was able to recommend a delicious Pinot for her to enjoy, whilst providing entertaining commentary to us.

Our food was exceptional. Everything we ordered took less than 15 minutes to come out, and every single item tasted like it came straight out of a 5-star restaurant! Mr. John's chefs know how to handle and cook meat.. 10/10 from us. We'll be back at some point in the future, for sure! Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Took my two 12 year olds to teach them about eating at upscale restaurant. Food was fabulous, service was even better. Staff was warm, professional and gracious with the kids who were trying to be grown up and on their best behavior. They made our meal very special and a highlight of our NOLA trip.

We arrived about 15 minutes early & were seated right away. They surprised me with a birthday meatball. Fried green tomatoes were good. I ordered the ribeye medium and the taste was very good but the steak was a lot thinner than I expected. The au gratin potatoes needed salt. It was very noisy. Overall it was good but not great.

The braised pork belly was horrendous. The fat wasn’t rendered and it was extremely tough and chewy. The Who dat shrimp was too salty. The steaks were not prime; they were chewy and over cooked and lacked flavor. The dining room was loud and generally uncomfortable. For the prices they charge, it was terrible. Don’t go here!

Excellent food and service. I highly recommend if you are in the mood for a great steak. Minor drawbacks to the place is the noise level. It is so loud that it's impossible to have a normal conversation with the person across the table. This is no joke. But the service was impeccable and the food was very good.

Food was not as good as it once was. Desi Vega in Metairie was better. The Strip steady was a little cheery. Calamari had very little sauce that was overpowered by the taste of olive. Dessert and potato au gratin was excellent. Service by Josh was amazing.
