We were greeted by a condescending matre'd who at 5 PM and 2 other people asked ""do you have reservations?"" She then proceeded to see where she could put us in this empty restaurant. My friend asked if we could be seated next to the window and she said no, all those tables were reserved. We have yet to see anyone come in for them.
We ordered a steak and salad - after 30 minutes we got a limp, blob of a salad that obviously the lettuce and romaine had gotten frozen in the refrigerator and when it thawed it was all limp. My friend had a Caesar and I had head lettuce with blue cheese - a 2 inch wedge with a blob of blue cheese dressing and limp - all for $10. My tea was so weak it looked like tinted water.
The manager came over and refused to take any responsibility for an inedible salad and wss very defensive.
We waited another half hour eating 3 baskets of toasted French bread. It ws not bad and finally our steaks arrived. They had a CRUST of pepper. I like pepper but this was overkill. By that time we were so hingry we just scraped off as much pepper as we could and ate them.
This is not an inexpensive restaurant - go to Ruth Chris - price is comparable and enjoy A GOOD MEAL BUT SKIP THIS RIP-OFF. My steak was $37 so its not cheap.
A word to the wise is sufficient.
Wouldn't do it again

So, I have to admit that I am not a meat eater, but apparently the meat is very good. I had lunch there, and had a wonderful wine, paired with very good calamari, and an eggplant parm, which really wasn't like anything I'd had before, but very very good. I was SO happy with my meal, I couldn't wait to go home and tell my boyfriend so that we could plan our dinner there. We're going there tomorrow. Highly recommended. Yum.

Mr. John's Steak & Seafood House rates tops of any restaurant in New Orleans! The food is excellent. The service is exceptional, especially when Ricahard is wating your table. The steaks are better than Ruth's Chris, cooked similarly. The various breads (especially the egg bread) make a wonderful pre-meal treat! Start with a Mr. John's Salad, topped with Goat cheese, and raspberry sauce. Have a Filet Mignon broiled to your liking. Topped with drawn butter- the steak will melt in your mouth! Add Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce or Spinich and end with hot bread pudding or the chocolate mousse and you're in heaven! But, don't take my word for it. Try it yourself! And, don't forget about Richard. If his tables are full, it's worth the wait to have him as your server. He definitely enhances your dining experience. I give this quaint little restaurant top ratings!
