    My girlfriends and I came here for my birthday. The ambiance and food were wonderful. The truffle fries, gumbo, cocktails, salads, and crab cakes were all delicious! The bread pudding was also very good. We loved the lighting comfortable seating inside. Our waiters Kendrink and Stephen were so attentive and personable!

    Mr B’s has been a fine dining experience for us in the past, but last night we extremely disappointed. The bbq shrimp was impossible to peel and eat and the bacon wrapped shrimp and grits were not of good quality. Service was extremely poor. We waited for quite a long time for getting drinks, clearing plates, and we were never asked why we barely touched our food. That is very poor staff service. This was all very disappointing when spending over $200 for 2 people.

    From the time we checked in until we completed our meal, the staff and servers were considerate, friendly and helpful. The food my husband and I ordered was beyond delicious! I ordered the pork chops and they were probably the best chops I have ever eaten. The sauce added so much to their flavor. Our waiter even brought me a small serving for dipping. I wish I lived closer because I would definitely go back. Thank you for a wonderful end to our NOLA experience!

    Mr. B's just never disappoints. The service is just out of this world. Alton is the BEST waiter I have ever had. And the food - oh my God the crabcakes. I do not even like crabcakes, but I could not stop eating them! And the barbeque shrimp. And the steaks just melt in your mouth.

    When anyone asks me what my favorite New Orleans restaurant is, I typically respond with little hesitation: Mr. B’s. But our brunch there was easily the worst experience we’ve ever had there. I have to assume that something is going on involving employee shortages or turnover. First off, their signature dish of New Orleans BBQ shrimp was off, and appeared watery… as though it hadn’t been cooked down properly. It wasn’t bad… but it wasn’t up to their usual level of perfection. Secondly, the service varied from indifferent to borderline hostile in a restaurant that usually has EXCELLENT service as well. I’ve been here over 20 times and this was my first bad experience. Hopefully this was an outlier…

    The ambiance in Mr. B's is great. The waiters are too busy. Our waiter brought part of our food, we were 5, and left one diner out, without a word. He came back later with her dinner, with no apology whatsoever. The waiter told us he had speckled trout so that's what two of us ordered. Now, I have eaten speckled trout many, many times and that was not speckled trout. We weren't sure what to do as we had a time constraint and couldn't wait another long while for a different fish dish to be cooked. Therefore, we didn't say anything, but I was very dissapointed. The food is very expensive. The plates when served were beautiful. Everyone else was satisfied with their food. I would try them again, but maybe not at such a busy time.

    The shrimp and grits are killer and probably the best I've ever had. The burger was also pretty tasty. There did seem to be a lack of diversity within the restaurant, and as a person of color it was odd to be seated right next to the kitchen (fully staffed by people or color) with so many other options closer to windows or in the main restaurant area. Would go back for the shrimp and grits but wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a pleasant experience.

    We had not visited Mr. B's in a few years and had always had a good experience. Unfortunately, our lunch experience not good. The Bloody Marys were so spicy they we close to undrinkable. The pasta Jambalaya was very little pasta swimming in soup and the veal was bland. The petite filet sat on a huge plate with a mushroom and three small potatoes. The best dish was the burger. The service staff was attentive, polite and efficient.

    Cute experience but if I’m paying good money, I don’t think bread should come to the table cold, in a paper bag with ice cold butter. That’s the only thing I remember from this meal. Do with that what you will.
