Lovely bar setting and very attentive service. Nice wine selection but my entree (a chicken dish) was quite marginal. Probably should have ordered fish or a pasta dish. Lots of noise at the bar and was quite glad to finish and escape. Not likely to return.

Irene’s is by far my fav restaurant in Nola. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting. The bar is abslouoty beautiful and enjoyable to sit at if you need to wait for your table. But the best part is our waiter Daniel. He continually makes our dining experiences far exceed any other by the fun he brings to the table! Irene’s never disappoints. Oh, and the food is scrumptious too!

Don't get the oysters half of hours for worse than low tide at the pier. My Caesar salad was had minimal leaf and was basically sweet fishy tasting. The entree was good but I have no plans to come here again. We were disappointed had reserved it for Valentine's Day quite a bit early and we're horribly disappointed. No plans to return it's overhyped. Have been coming to New Orleans for over 20 years from mobile this is my only negative review I have done of a restaurant. We were concerned how about I experienced to the point that we canceled our reservation at Tommy's the following night.

It was an early Valentine’s Day celebration in hopes of beating the mad rush of the holiday. It was exactly what we were asking for. Exceeding all of our expectations. Chris, our server, was so great and the entire staff were friendly, attentive, and efficient. We couldn’t have asked for a better night. We will definitely be telling everyone who will listen to make a date night out of your beautiful restaurant.

Overall food was quite good, the kitchen seemed slowed by a large party in a private room. Over an hour and a half before the salad course came out.
Too many great places to want to head back....

great venue and delicious food. only issue we had was that we brought a bottle of wine for my wife's birthday but also bought a bottle as well. Still charged a corkage fee. Most restaurants waive that fee when you buy a bottle.

Our party had crab gratin, oysters, caprese salad, lasagna, chicken, lamb, bread pudding, and chocolate mousse. All were quite satisfied. Portions were ample. Service was excellent - they did all the right things at the right times, and with a 'comfortable,' welcoming attitude. Went on a recommendation and will go again.
