We wanted a fancier night out and thought this would be the best place close to our B&B. I ordered the veal and my husband got the surf and turf. Both were excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant.

To describe Mr. John's. This restaurant is owned by a local whom owns several restaurants. Desi does a nice job being seen in his restaurants. Which is respectful. You don't see that with most Nola restauranteurs. Important stuff: ribeye and filet was fantastic. Nice crusting,...More

Great food and service but the noise is unbearable! They told us it was due to the floor tile! It was just loud obnoxious customers that the manager knew.

Mr. John's was simply AH-MAZING. Just brace yourself for the check -- but I personally guarantee it's worth every penny. Perfect place for a celebration of any kind.

We've had the tiramisu and the creme brulee. Both were quite good. I don't recall what other desserts were available.
