This is a really elegant restaurant! The ambiance was great for my sister's bachelorette party celebration and the waiters were such gentlemen. I ordered the Gulf Fish of the Day and had everyone at the table asking for samples. I will definitely return upon my next visit to New Orleans.

Mr. John's is the "power tie" steakhouse in NOLA. We usually ask for Boris. The service is always adequate, but one can feel rushed on busy nights as the staff scurries. The house is loud and gets louder as the night gets later. The food is superb. .....great, traditional steakhouse.

We were a party of 20, so that always seems to present a challenge. They had our tables set up and ready when we got there early for our reservation. However, the tables were set up in an area that I would consider a 'foyer' and it was a really tight squeeze. The servers even gave us trouble about where... More

We didn't have reservations however we arrived when they first opened and they were able to accommodate us. My New York strip was drenched in butter and even though I asked for no pepper it was loaded with it or some derivitive of. My dining partner had a filet which tasted wonderful but loaded with salt. Our waiter turned out... More

The food quality was outstanding. Worth every penny. Service was average, less friendly. Appetizers where excellent, steaks incredibly tender. I'll be back!

NOLA is a city where good food is abundant and even great food is easily accessible, however Mr. John's is one of the standouts. We had a party of five and our feast included appetizers of BBQ Shrimp, Remoulade Shrimp, and Crab Cake all wonderful - but you won't believe how good the Who Dat Shrimp is! A must. We... More

We come to Mardi Gras every year and for my birthday present my GF took me and a local friend for dinner. We were not disappointed. Excellent food and service had the Porterhouse for two. IMHO the wine list needs to be updated with more Italian varietals but you can more than find something to pair with.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
