Irene's is always on my list of must stops in New Orleans. The food get's better through the years. We had a great server, Matt, who was spot on with his recommendations and was was a terrific server. We were pleased as we had a group of 9 and Irene's now accepts reservations for groups. We arrive at 7 for our reservation and were seated within 10 minutes. Everyone areed that it was a memorable meal and we will be back to Irene's ASAP. The lamb was super as were the sides.

I had found Irene's through a friend a few years ago and had taken my hostess there 2 years in a row and loved it. My husband was able to go to NOLA with me this time and so finally got to Irene's with us. He had heard me rave about the place and so was delighted to see if anything it is even better! The meals are generous in portions but also top quality in taste and preparation. It is great ambience and everyone always seems to be having a great time! The pianist was delightful-mischievous and playful while playing very good music! We absorbed exquisite lean and tender lamb chops-beautiful salads-mouthwatering bread-a crab appetizer casserole that melted in one's mouth-wonderful choices of wines to compliment the food-a duck entrée with incredible sauces and delicate veggies, moist and tender veal and wonderful complementary vegetables--each dish was perfect and absolutely outstanding. The service is smooth and competent-just a special evening when one goes there!

Really enjoyed our evening and meal at Irene's . Delicious fish entree, lovely ambiance, and a very attentive wait staff. It was my favorite dining experience while in New Orleans.

Italian style restaurant serves New Orleans style food. Food is delicious, prices are not outrageous and the staff is really friendly. Hard to get a reservation if you try to book same day, so prepare for a long wait...one hour on average. You can sit or stand in an official waiting area (complete with live piano music) or if your timing is right you can sit on one of the two person benches on the street on either side of the entry door...the staff will come out and get you when your table is ready.
