Food was magnificent in an old French quarter building. Everybody seemed to enjoy what they ate, and drank.

Selected Irene's as our first dinner spot on our first visit to New Orleans's French Quarter. The service and food was totally outstanding. As a well travelled couple we would rank Irene's at the top of our list as best dining experiences.

This was a great restaurant and our food was terrific. Restaurant is charming and we had a wonderful time. We had steak, lasagne, and lamp chops. Everyone’s meal was wonderful. If we lived here, we would definitely go back again and again.

Irene's has a lovely (and easier to find) new location but the charm of small dining rooms and delicious food has stayed the same. The oyster and shrimp appetizer is unlike anything we've had before and quite possibly the BEST oysters ever. The special the...More

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.
