Our server was Sean. He made us feel very welcome and the wine he recommended was excellent with our dinner selections. This is the third time we have dined at Irene’s on our anniversary and each occasion has been a memorable one. The food has been excellent but the service has been truly remarkable every time. Thank you Irene’s.

CC was our server, and she was wonderful. My wife and I have wanted to come here for years and this was our first opportunity. It did not disappoint. The fried chicken hummus may have been our favorite dish – which was recommended by our server. I would never have thought of that combination and it is spectacular. We also had the lamb which was some incredible. The only downside whatsoever is that the restaurant is a little bit noisy. (Also be prepared that the air conditioning works VERY well, so even though it was hot outside, it was icy inside). But that did not interfere with us having a wonderful evening.

Came from out of town for a friends bday and was blow way by the food for the cost. Our server was amazing. We were a troublesome party due to lack of planning on some of our party’s planning and the servers took it very gracefully and didn’t skip a beat. Coming from a culinary background, I really appreciated it. And the oyster special was out of this world. Thanks to the NOLA staff.

Calamari app was great, as was the spin/art/crab dip. Drinks generous and delicious. Snow crab was good. Catfish was good, almost fully cooked. Steak was medium or medium well but definitely not med rare. Lobster tail was delish, shrimp enbrochette were well fried. Grits yummy. Monday night so no oyster Rockefeller.

Eric was great! Bottle of wine was reasonable. Flavor of the steak was good. It was noisy because they sat us at the first table off the casino bar...didn't know why because the back was nearly empty. Though, that ended up being a positive, because we got Eric - the best server we had here in years.

Good Corporate chain restaurant. Things tasted a bit salty but everything was cooked to temperature. I had a NY strip... properly prepared at medium, wife had salmon.. also properly prepared.. just seemed that they were a little heavy handed with the seasoning. Not a deal breaker. We split a salad and it was plenty for the 2 of us. Flavor of salad and presentation was on point. Also ordered the crab cakes appetizer. Good flavor once again, my wife said they were perfect, i wished they were a bit warmer on the plate.. again not a deal breaker for me, they still tasted delicious. Ambiance of this place is awesome. Piano lady playing some tunes you wouldnt normally here but she has got her own thing going and it works.. Ill be back..

This was a great recommendation from a mixologist I met while visiting New Orleans. The food was delectable, staff personable and attentive, and drinks perfect. The location was perfect, just a short distance from the overly populated Bourbon Street. The hostess, Mochie, was amazingly accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our visit to this quaint little restaurant. It was just what we needed.
