Absolutely wonderful. Service was great, pasta was freshly made and the balance of taste and texture was spot on. There are a lot of great meals to be had in New Orleans and I would highly recommend having one here.

Some meals are delicious but few are incredible. My dinner Irene's was incredible. I had the Chicken Marsala and my husband had the Cioppino and both were unforgettable.

This is my wife's favorite restaurant in New Orleans and possibly the world. It is fantastic cuisine and she told me about it for years. We usually save it for big events as it's pricey but it's worth every cent. You talk about restaurant off the beaten path and what locals eat. This is it. To me they're home of... More

Don't delay! Make your reservation and dine at Irene's! Fresh and full of flavor! We had the wonderful caprese salad, fresh bread, and the filet mignon was the best I've had in my life! The reduction sauce was simply divine. We finished with the light and fluffy tiramisu covered in blueberries which was a nice refreshing blend. We were honored... More

With the food to match, we had two kids that after a long day out in New Orleans were both over-tired. Doesn't help when you are trying to enjoy a nice meal at a quality restaurant but the staff were very helpful and friendly to the kids with books to keep them entertained and free ice-cream. Now for the food.... More

I had been to Irene's a few years ago with a big group of girlfriends, and I recently returned with my husband and some friends. We had a 7 p.m. reservation, and were seated within about 10 minutes. This surprised me as we had heard that you would wait for a long time, even with reservations. It was a Saturday... More

Consistently excellent staff and cuisine. A bit pricey but not out of line with other nearby restaurants of their quality.

Had been here only once before a couple years ago & couldn't wait to go again. I guess the anticipation was too much. I was disappointed this time around. The food just wasn't as tasty as I remembered. The waiter could have had a little more personality. We had a kid with us. The other 3 adults said the same.... More
