I absolutely LOVE this restaurant! A group of ladies went before Bette Midler concert and it was great! Had the duck and fried soft shell crab and split. I would order both again. The wait staff especially Daniel were on top of everything! Service is always impeccable and we were a bunch of high maintenance women out on the town... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lovely restaurant! I always insist on taking friends to Irene's if they have never experienced it before. I especially want to thank Damien and Orlando for their superb service on May 16th. It was a busy night, and despite our long wait, our experience - my three friends being there for the... More

Definitely a place to go for a delicious meal. We ordered the chicken in rosemary and wine sauce, the duck and lasagna with the escargot / mushroom appetizers. Everything was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Wait staff is attentive and friendly. Would suggest calling ahead for reservations.

My husband and I stay regularly at the Hotel Provincial. The last two times we were there, we ate at Irene's. After a great class at New Orleans School of Cooking, I asked our instructor, Ann, what she thought of Irene's for our last dinner on the trip. She highly approved (ask a local). I recommend the grilled oysters and... More

The little wood door in the long blank wall attracted us, and we expected to find a little café behind it. Surprise! Large rooms filled with lots of people, black mirrored walls, twinkling lights and good smells. It was packed and not taking reservations any longer, but if we returned later the host said he'd work us in. We did... More
