There were four of us that tried Irenes after reading their web site and Trip Advisor. We had a new server James, a trainee. He did okay but, two entrees were totally overlooked. The fettuccini was mushy and the shrimp were dried out. We notified James. He said he would tell the manager but nothing was done about it. We had read the web site menu and had planned to order the veal or pork chops. James explained they had changed the menu 11 weeks ago but the web site had never been changed. Also one in the party ordered the shrimp in pastry and was told they now used noodles because they were out of the pastry. All in all we were disappointed. We would not go back.

We always visit Irene’s on our visits to NO but this time was less enjoyable. The cacaphony of loud voices and sounds was awful. To be fair they recently moved so perhaps they have not addressed this issue. The food was as delicious as ever and the service was good. Mussels in a sauce “to die for” delicious. Pasta w/ shrimp and crabmeat in a rich cream sauce. All good. Unfortunately we will not go back back unless we wear earplugs.

From one Italian to another (whether you really are or just want to be), Irene's has the best Italian Food in the City! I recommend calling for reservations - this place is no secret. And it was packed. We had a table for 2 in the bar area next to the piano. Live Music, Great Wine, Excellent Service and Great Italian Food. We will definitely go back.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere in Irene's new location! The lasagna was the hit but all enjoyed our dishes. It was the day after St. Joseph's Day and there was a magnificent St. Joseph's Altar set up in one of the rooms, displaying all the traditional dishes and cookie offerings. It was also nice that some of the traditional dishes were offered on the menu. Definitely try this one!

We we a table for 6 at 9 pm. We arrive timely and were seated within a reasonable time. Tow of us sat in the bar area waiting for the rest of our group. We waited 15 minutes for the waiter to get drink service. Other than that minor blip everything was outstanding. Excellent table waiter, great menu, food was outstanding. We were seated in a small room and were able to have conversation at a normal level. I would highly recommend.
