    For our Thanksgiving meal we skipped the turkey and had duck and redfish. We started with gumbo yaya and finished with pecan pie. Everything was perfect, including the attentive service. We recommend!

    The food, as always, was delicious. The service was abysmal. We had no water for the longest time. Our drink order was wrong. We had no bread plate for one of our diners. Then we asked for our order -no appetizer. We did order them and they came out fast but it was about 30 minutes later our food came out and mine was cold. No offers of refills for drinks. We ordered dessert and it came out quickly but our waitress— as was characteristic of the entire night — was nowhere. Several severs looked at the ticket and walked away. A manager-looking person took a crab cake off the server and took it to a table. Then another waitress took our dessert to another table who told them it wasn’t there. At that point I flagged her down to say it was ours. Our waitress wasn’t present for any point in the 10-15 minutes this all was taking place. We asked for the check by flagging her down. Another waitress took it & then brought it back saying she couldn’t get into it because it wasn’t her table. We had to locate out waitress to take the check. It was not the service you would expect paying the prices you pay to eat here.

    Amazing restaurant. We were recommended this place by a couple we met at another location and they could not stop talking about how great it was. So I changed our reservation to Mr. B's and was so happy I did. The staff was amazing and the food even better. They truly made sure my boyfriend has a special birthday!

    Mr. B's is New Orleans. From the decor to the buzz, from the food to the spirits. The staff is excellent, and embodies what I think when I say "southern hospitality". I highly recommend Mr. B's for their total experience. This was my husband's first time and his comment was, "I could eat here every night".

    Highly recommended! Outstanding service and dinner menu! B''s Bistro was recommended to us several years ago so we made a reservation one weekend while in the city. B's is now our-go to restaurant in the New Orleans French Quarter every time we visit! We have tried them all and this restaurant is the best all around dinner experience in the city! See y'all next time!

    This was our first trip to Mr. B's, and it was wonderful. From the appetizers to the dessert, we had a marvelous experience. I highly recommend the grilled redfish and barbecued shrimp. The truffle fries are very good, too. The bread pudding is a nice finish to the meal. We can hardly wait to eat her again. The service was just as top notch as the food.

    Mr B's never disappoints. We have been coming here for years and always receive impeccable service. I ordered the pork chop that came with Jasmine rice and carrots. The glaze on the pork chop is absolutely phenomenal and the chop is always so tender, the jasmine rice is so delicious and carrots were cooked perfectly. They gave us a table away from everything so that we could have a conversation without screaming at one another to hear. We had a wonderful time and we did not feel rushed at all. I highly recommend eating at Mr B's you will not be disappointed and you will return again and again as we do.

    The wait staff kind of forgot us and they were slow to respond to our requests.The servers seemed inexperienced. We have been coming to Mr. B's for over 20 years. There was no team of servers and we were "forgotten" . Drinks were served late and the entrees sat on the service tray for at least 15 minutes before the waiter brought them to the table.
