    Everything from customer service to the food preparation was absolutely perfect! The Weight staff took very good care of us, and we had a fabulous evening. The flavors were unique, but not overly so. I’ll be sure to eat there again when I return to New Orleans.

    Mr. John's steak house is a special place to have dinner. We greatly enjoyed everything, and the valet parking was nice feature mostly because we really no longer feel safe in New Orleans so we rarely come to the city. But a dinner at Mr John's is worth it.

    This was once my favorite steakhouse in New Orleans but it seems to have really gone downhill. Appetizers were cold, the barbecue shrimp was so full of vinegar that it overpowered everything else, the who dat shrimp were wrapped in so much bacon that I couldn’t even find the shrimp in the center. Steaks were served on such a hot plate that my medium steak ended up well done. Having known this I would’ve ordered it one maybe two temperatures lower. Ruth’s Chris and LaBoca are much better choices if you’re looking for consistently perfect steaks.

    Tony made the experience great. We have loved Mr. John’s for 15 years, one of our favorite steak houses in the US. And they made meals for our young kids and made the experience fun for everyone. Thanks again Tony for a great dinner!

    We’ve been to Mr. John’s quite a few times over the years, but this was the first time that our order was completely messed up: steaks not cooked as requested and wrong sides. However, the food is still phenomenal.

    Always great food and great service. Crab cakes are our favorite appetizer, but there are many other good choices. Hard to pick between the steaks; all are wonderful. And there are other good entrée choices as well. Be sure to leave room for one of the great desserts.
