My friend and I stopped by the new location on Bienville for dinner the other night. We had a high-top table in the bar area which was perfect for us. I started with a glass of Prosecco and he had an Old Fashion while Michael...More

Irene's delivered the exact experience my friend and I was looking for. We sat down in cozy front room, that has the classic Italian restaurant look. To start, the wine list has a very comprehensive selection. I now have a new favorite red, Amarone. We...More

I really loved this restaurant when I lived in NOLA. On my recent visit, the food was not quite as good as I remembered, but it is still one of the better dining options in the French Quarter. The escargot appetizer was delicious. My salad...More

We stumbled across Irene’s and gave it a look becuase of the music coming out and it shares the same name as my wife. Happy accident. Good, attentive waitress and the other staff all had time to say hello as they went about their business....More

This is a very expensive place to go while on vacation, food portions are large, but very bland. You can spend you money at many places while visiting New Orleans and get better quality food any day of the WEEK

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Actually, we went and we brought our wine with us. Worked out perfectly and the corkage fee was a modest $15. Of course we would not do this if ordering from the menu but it was a special bottle.
