Our server was excellent, the food was delicious, but bar service was super slow. There were 2 bartenders and it was late lunch time on a weekday.

Bella was an efficient and helpful server, as were those who assisted her. We feel like we never go wrong at this restaurant and it’s a keeper on our regular to go to. Had most of the sides and filets and a few HD and we were satisfied with all of them. Love that tuna stack and it’s a keeper on what we order each time.

About the restaurant
Desi Vega, Rodney Salvaggio, Paul Varisco and staff, invite you to join them for a "memorable dining experience" at what food critic Tom Fitzmorris calls "The Best Steakhouse in the City." With regular visits from the Saints players and owners, most weekends are sold out. Mr. John's convenient location on historical St. Charles Avenue and valet parking makes for a pleasurable evening in the city!

Food was good but menu is somewhat limited. I would return as it is a very nice place for Houma.
