We truly enjoyed the food, service and the ambiance. The food was extremely hot when it arrived at the table. We had our steaks prepared medium well plus. The steaks came back perfect. The dessert was fantastic. We were extremely happy with the service of our waiter, Boris!!! We are already planning our next event.

We've lived in New Orleans for 3 years, and I thought I had tasted the best steak in town. I was wrong. This was our first visit to Mr. John's Steakhouse. We had friends in town and wanted a fun evening at a restaurant with lots of atmosphere. Mr. John's did not disappoint. The food, cocktails and wine were amazing. There are many delicious items on the menu, but I say you must have a steak. It comes out sizzling on the plate, and it is truly the best steak I've ever had. We all had our steaks cooked at different temps, and they all came out sizzling at the same time. The salads are beautiful. Try the Tomato and mozzarella. And, the French Onion Soup is out of this world. We also loved the vibe. It's so lively and full of energy. It's a true classic New Orleans restaurant in the Garden District in an area with lots to do. Ask for Boris. He's awesome, but honestly, every single person working there greeted us with a smile and were so nice. We had an amazing night!!!

Everyone raves about how great Mr. John’s is. I just didn’t feel like they lived up to the hype. The service was great. To food was good. It just failed to live up to expectations. I have had better steaks for less money. The drinks were just okay. All in all I feel that the experience or food were not worth the expense.

This was not the same Mr. John’s we loved pre-covid shutdown. The meat quality was not even close to usual and didn’t taste dry-aged. My wife ordered her NY strip cooked medium, and it came medium well, almost well-done. It was overall very disappointing for our favorite steakhouse in the city to be like a totally different restaurant.

Our server was not good at his job with anything he did like messing up orders, and walking away before all appetizers were ordered. I could go on and on. Second. Although I notated it was my wife’s birthday they must have overlooked it. They didn’t realize it until they saw her opening presents. The ac was broken so it felt like an oven in the place. I was told it was broken for a few days. I wish they had told me there was no ac because I would have gone somewhere else instead of sweating in the restaurant. They ruined a special occasion.

We had a late reservation but the overall experience was not what we expected. We were very rushed, our steak was very tough and not what you would expect from a nicer dinner. We got dessert creme brûlée and something chocolate but the creme brûlée was basically inedible. We wanted to branch out and try something different but will not be back

I am a frequent visitor to the New Orleans area and I have been to and experienced all of the tourist places to dine. This time, because it was a special occasion and I was meeting several very important people for the first time, I decided to check reviews and yelp for the top Steakhouses in the area. Consistently, Mr. John’s was in the top three (3). The food looked decent and the decor looked traditional.

We arrived, after being seated and greeted by our waiter the experience went down hill fast. The waiter was quite a character, and not in a good, charming nor pleasant way. He was abrasive and not fully understanding of his menu. For instance, I asked if there were any additional or special “cuts” not listed on the menu. He proceeded to tell me that “all of our cuts are listed and there are no special cuts”. Immediately he began to explain to me three (3) other cuts that were available. His presentation left a lot to be desired. His delivery or the food was rude and abrasive, aggressively delivering and dropping the plates on the table. He was just terrible.

The food was remarkable for all the wrong reasons. The roasted chicken was dry and tasteless. The catch of the day was not recognizable and lacked taste and visual composure. When asked, on several instances, what kind of fish they were serving, the only answer given was “white fish”. Finally we get to the porterhouse for two. I went through all of the progressions of all the cuts offered and order this one. I will give credit, the temperature was spot one. Once again the flavor lacked and it was just not enjoyable. We also never received the Turtle Soup that my wife ordered.

We did speak with the manager on duty. While he was easier to deal with, the resolution was not nearly enough. Several items were removed, but quite frankly, everything but the cocktails should have been removed. Maybe I just expect too much. David Burke, Wolfgang Puck, Dickie Brennan’s, even the Clover Grill was better. Very sad!

We enjoyed our date night at this restaurant. Our waiter was very good and made the experience top notch. The turtle soup is to die for, the crab cake is delightful, and the cheesecake is literally the best I've had. Interestingly, the steak was the worst part of the meal. It was not a bad steak but lacked flavor and they messed up the temperatures of both steaks. We would go back, but not for steak.
