Our cuisine is country French and Italian with a New Orleans influence. Although a majority of our seating is available for walk-in guests we do take reservations. While you wait we have a piano player and serve cocktails. We look forward to serving you.

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.
Beautifully designed and decorated space. Wonderfully professional wait staff.
Possibly the best food in New Orleans. This is always our go to place when we have out of town guests.
One of my favorite New Orleans restaurants!! Love the new location!
Meal was made even better with Stephen as our server.
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.
Wonderful food, and wonderful atmosphere for a romantic evening
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.
Great new location and still great food and service. One of our most favorite New Orleans restaurant.
Impeccable dinner, service and atmosphere! Loved it!
My new fav in NOLA! Great place! Try the meatballs. Great server, drinks and the ambiance is great! I’m a big foodie and it was special.
The music was too frenetic and way too loud.
The ambience and the menu were divine. The service was deliberate and gave the party sufficient time to visit.
Tight dining and very noisy but would go back. Hard to hear each other with everyone talking
Old school, classic Italian -fish & chops + outstanding service.
1st time at the 'new' place... it is marvelous. Were regulars @ the old Irene's and will now be regulars @ this new one. Everything was great, service a tad choppy, but only worth a passing mention. Y'all done good - thanks and well done !!!!
We had dinner at Irene’s and absolutely loved it. The food was amazing!! And the service was impeccable. Our waiter was super friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and can’t wait to go back!
The staff was Very friendly - food even better! I would recommend to anyone in the area
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....
The courtyard in a warm evening is unbeatable...great food, excellent staff!
Great food and good time. Excellent service for a business meeting.
Great food and atmosphere. Very friendly service. Will be going back soon.
Dinner was very tasty. Our waiter, David was very professional. He was there to make our dinner memorable.
Had friends out of town (Chicago, Illinois! )Love this restaurant!
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.
Service was great food outstanding. We enjoyed the entire experience
Absolutely wonderful dinner - one of the best dining experiences! They couldn’t have been more accommodating to our 7 and 10 year old children as well.
This was our first visit and will not be our last. Outstanding food and service.
It’s very rare that you can experience not only great food, but that the staff being extremely friendly and helpful as well. Loved everything about this place!
Service is excellent. Food is consistently good. All around great dining experience.
We eat out a lot, and Irene's is one of the best we have experienced. When we are back in town, we will put it first on our list.
I had a lovely experience and the food was excellent!
I've been a long-time patron of Irene's for many years. This wonderful place never disappoints!
Incredibly rude Maitre D’ wanted to turn our table and invited us to have dessert at bar. We were at the table for less than 2 hours and will never return!
We did have to wait a good 20-30m to be seated after reservation time, however it was worth the wait. The service was top notch. As was the delicious food. Highly recommend for a fabulous Nola dinner experience
As always Irene’s never disappoints. Beautiful romantic ambiance,terrific food, impeccable service. A true New Orleans gem in the heart of the historic French Quarter. A not to be missed dining experience!
The service was amazing from the moment we walked through the door. The food was fantastic, drinks were delicious, and definitely order dessert.
Excellent meal. Outstanding service. Reasonable prices. What's not to like?
Met friends of many years who were road tripping and fortunately stopped by. We have always loved Irene’s and this experience was special. The new restaurant is wonderful and we were in the 2 table area. Had a wonderful meal with great service. We’ve always felt Irene’s was “our “ restaurant and you can bet it still is
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.
