The food was delicious as always, we were sat on the patio which was beautiful, the only problem was it was in the 40’s that night and the heaters did little to help. The worst part was the hot food was ice cold before you had a chance to eat it.

This was an overall amazing time. My fiance and I are in town for business and we throughly enjoyed our experience at Irene's. The staff was so inviting and friendly, the food was amazing (make sure to save room for the bread pudding!), and the ambiance felt like old New Orleans in the best way. We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful place to just enjoy food and great service. With the restaurant back down to 25 0/0 capacity they made you feel as if things were normal They were practicing all safety protocols and as I looked around the diners were enjoying all the restaurant had to offer. This will remain one of my top choices and go to spot when I am in New Orleans Great menu, outstanding food and top notch service.

Noise level from music was a bit too loud. Do not recommend the eggplant and crab bisque. The lasagna, filet , and oysters trio were excellent. Surprised with cheesecake for birthday celebration.

This is my all-time favorite French Quarter restaurant. We go to New Orleans frequently and every time I HAVE to go to Irene's at least once. I try to make it on a Thursday when they have Osso Bucco, my favorite. Any day is good to go, however. The regular menu items are outstanding and the Chef's specials are always flavorful.
