I love the atmosphere of Mr. B's. The lights are soft and the whole place is very elegant and inviting. The waiters are very professional. The food was fantastic. We didn't have to make a reservation and only had to wait about 5 minutes.

This place was so noisy could not hear my husband directly across from me. We waited 45 minutes for our table and tried to wait at the bar and never got service. The tables are so close and the menu is over priced . The food was good but not my favorite dining experience at all.

I ordered the blood orange margarita which was fabulous. My husband ordered the three soup trio which was pleasantly good. It came in three cups that looked tiny but held more than they appeared. He was disappointed that they could not make him sweet tea. It is usually very crowded but the night we went was not busy at all.... More

What a lovely place for dinner!! Had the bacon wrapped shrimp and grits with red-eye gravy. Never had anything like that before. Wow!! So good! Also the garlic roasted chicken, best meal we had in NOLA. Service by Greg was exceptional. I even bought the cook book!

Great atmosphere and energy. Felt like "the place to be". Food was fantastic. Best shrimp and grits (shrimp wrapped in bacon) I have ever had. Attire ranged from dressy to casual (we were in shorts). Only disappointment was staff did not give off that "southern hospitality" I have come to enjoy in the south. By far, the best meal we... More

We Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere within this restaurant. Everything was cooked to perfection . Well it is a venue fit for a president! - Ronald Regan dined here some time back while visiting New Orleans. His thank you letter hangs on the wall as a fitting reminder. Would highly recommend a visit.

We picked this restaurant because it was closer to the French Quarter on a rainy night and had sit down service. We were sat right next to the bar, but to the side next to a stack of chairs. After 15 minutes were given menus. Then after another 10 minutes our server Cristina(sp?) came over and started taking our food... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
