This spot is right next to the Pontchetrain Hotel and offers delicious steaks and more. Two of us happily split the delicious Porterhouse and added the delicious Bearnaise sauce - highly recommended

We went out looking for a good steak dinner. Having eaten at a few steak places, we had a general idea of what we were looking for. The steaks were cooked correctly, and from read the reviews we knew that the plates would come out with the butter still sizzling. It smelled fantastic, however about halfway through the steak, the... More

We went to Mr. Johns for my wife's Birthday. My steak was ok but my wife's was bad. The waiter pushed a bottle of wine on us without a price. We got the bill and it was huge. We would never go back or recommend this restaurant. Bad food, service and price. I recommend go to Emeril's.

We visited Mr John's after a day of sightseeing in the Garden District. It was just what we needed. Everything was excellent, from the food, to the wine, to the exemplary service which was so attentive. There is literally nothing to dislike about this place. If I'm ever back in New Orleans, I will definitely return.

As you enter Mr. Johns you get the feel of an old, established steakhouse. We had the bar b que shrimp app which was delicious. Also had the wedge salad which was huge. It had blue cheese dressing and bacon bits and some cherry tomatoes , almost a meal in itself. Aaron and John then brought out our steaks ,... More

We stopped in for a quick bite and sat at the full service bar. We ordered two apps and drinks. The two appetizers, crabcake and bacon-wrapped shrimp, were both excellent and came out of the kitchen quickly. My wife's lemondrop martini was very nice and my single malt Scotch rock was as it should be. What made is rather special... More

Mr. John's Might be best steakhouse in Louisiana-- no, USA. No kidding. Ruths is good. This is over the top. Located in Garden District on St. Charles, this restaurant has been at the top if the list for locals for a long time. Best onion rings in the state. Best steak in the state. That good. Only downside is it... More

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Mr. John's. We both had the petite filet mignon and thought they were excellent. The house salads were very good and the desserts delicious. The service was friendly and excellent. The ambiance inside is nice and tables spread out enough so it isn't noisy. A very enjoyable meal and well worth the expense.Easy... More

The steak here was tender and good, but we all said we could have used more seasoning. The prices were kind of high (three of us ate for around $250) but if you're looking for somewhere nice to go and you're willing to spend the money, then I would recommend it.
