We love, love, love Irene's. It is worth the wait in their waiting room where they will bring you a drink while you wait. Their turtle soup, is my hubby's passion and we both love the filet mignon. The wait staff at Irene's is probably the best staff we have ever met. We live in Chicago and they still win with their wait staff. The price of eating out in New Orleans is less than Chicago and due to the food and service at Irene's we feel cheated for months later after we get home.

Food was good but waiter was distracted. Brought wrong entree for my husband and we had to wait some time for the correct one. A drink or dessert on the house would have been in order. Service not as good as we've experienced in the past.

Very good Italian food. Excellent location in very safe part of the French quarter. Chicken dishes are very good especially the rosemary chicken.

Had a reso for 730pm and didn't get sited until 815pm - just a bad bad system. You are supposed to feel like it is such a privilege to be there that how you are treated doesn't matter. The maitre'd was a jerk. The food was good and our waiter was very very good - but definitely not the hospitality expected and we were so annoyed by the time we got seated it wasn't a great experience.

The chicken dish (chicken rosemarino) was the best chicken I have ever eaten hands down. The rosemary/spices and crust were perfect. My friends had the oysters and duck and found it fabulous as well. It is a tiny, crowded place but the service still excels. Not sure the issue others had with wait times- we did have a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. The waiting area was packed, so sounds like you should make a reservation. Don't miss it!
