    As a local this is one of my favorite spots. However, the service last night was terrible. We ordered a bottle of wine and had to remind the waiter that we ordered it. He just seemed very over whelmed and not very attentive the entire time.

    We had a later reservation (8:30pm); the Gumbo tasted like it was scrapped from the bottom of the pot. Not very good and it was cold. Everyone ordering the gumbo sent it back. Not the best experience.

    Food was fresh and delicious. Christina,our server was efficient friendly and hospitable. Fried oysters was crispy and hot. Remoulade was delicious. Redfish was succulent and flavorful. Burger was juicy. Salads were fresh and nicely dressed. We were too full for desserts.

    It wasn’t the best experience mostly because our server was very inattentive and discourteous. She probably had something going on, but she’s on the job and customers shouldn’t have to suffer because of staff’s personal issues. It was difficult to get past her unpleasant attitude that it soured the whole experience.

    Excellent meal! From the pre dinner cocktails all the way through to dessert at the end, we really enjoyed our first dining experience from Mr B’s bistro. The mahi mahi was excellent & the seafood jambalaya delicious. We shared the strawberry cake for dessert & loved it! Everything was delicious and well prepared. I would definitely recommend Mr. B’s & we will be back the next time we are in New Orleans!

    We have been here many times, it’s usually great. They changed the menu to the point that I wasn’t interested in most of the entrees. We ate mostly starters plus the lamb that wasn’t that great. Service was really slow but they were very busy. Probably won’t be back for brunch.

    Had the shrimp with bread for dipping. Huge portion, I only ate 1/2 and I was stuffed. Really good flavor and messy so they put huge bibs on you which was fun.

    The bbq shrimp was over cooked and there was not enough bread to enjoy the sauce. The crab cake was completely bland and the portion skimpy for 36$. The wood fired fish entree was cold and flavorless. The server Nikki was wonderful! She was the best thing about the place! I would not recommend this restaurant unless you want to pay a lot of money for a mediocre dinner.

    What a disappointment this time! We've eaten here several times in the past and it was always superb. This time the food was just okay--not nearly as good as the Gumbo Shop or Mother's--and overpriced. Plus, we really wanted the rabbit dish that was on the menu on the website--we've had it before and it was phenomenal--but when we got there, it wasn't actually on the menu or available. I hope they were just having an off day; otherwise they've really gone downhill since the last time we were here.

    Every time I come to New Orleans I bring my clients in, and at other times my husband and I have a date night. Last night was a date night - we had a reservation at 8pm. They took us to a table immediately - but it was right in front of the kitchen with little room for the servers to get by. I asked if we could switch to another table. They promptly moved us to another table - again in an odd location right in front of a waiter's station with little room. I didn't want to complain again so we decided to make the best of it. After being hit in the head 3 times by waiters, my husband and I pushed the table more towards the center of the dining room. We then waited over 15 minutes for our waiter to take our drink order even though tables seated after us were being helped first. We ordered one of our favorite wines - 2 glasses of Duckhorn sauvignon blanc. My stemware was so sticky when it arrived I had to wipe it down. For dinner I ordered the strawberry salad no feta but our waiter said they were out of spinach. I asked if they could do mixed greens instead and he said sure. My husband ordered the crab claw app. For entrees I ordered the bbq shrimp and my husband ordered the pork chop. They brought warm bread with butter - so delicious!! Our apps arrived but my salad had feta so I sent it back. My husband was disappointed with the crab claws - they did not have much meat on them - the dish seemed to be mainly bread crumbs (although they tasted good). As my husband was finishing his app my salad arrived. It was the wrong salad. This took another 10 minutes to correct. It was delicious though! We waited a very long time for our entrees. Another waitress brought bbq shrimp to our table but realized it wasn't ours. More time passed - but my husband's pork chop was perfect - my shrimp were bordering on cold. After dessert we got the wrong check. Overall the food was yummy - but I'll never book at 8pm again. The waiter was friendly but wow. We will remember him.

    Busy night at Mr. B’s. Gumbo delicious. After too long a wait we were served entrées of pork tenderloin and shrimp and grits -unfortunately served barely warm. Entrees sent back/reheated-again not hot and now shrimp overcooked. Too bad. Pecan pie the best and key lime very good. Service was extremely gracious. Management did the right thing-comped. Maybe better next time around.

    We were there for the jazz brunch. The sound level was perfect to enjoy the music but still hold a conversation. My husband got the shrimp & grits and was in heaven. I ordered a blackened fresh fish, a drum. So delicious. Our servers were wonderful.
