Irene's Cuisine Reviews
Showed up at 650pm for a 7pm reservation. Haven't been seated and it's 745pm :(
The wait is long but the service is absolutely outstanding-well worth it! They have a sitting room with a piano player and drink service. The best experience I've prob ever had. Food was delicious!

Order the lamb. The lamb. The lamb. Lamb. Lamb. Lamb!!!
by Fabiano R.
Excellent as always & the service was fantastic.

Ask for Daniel, he's funny and very knowledgable. Bread pudding is to die for. Escargot is spectacular.
by Ken W.
Top 5 meals of my life. Everything was great, but the fried oysters and escargot gave me a borderline seizure.
by Rich K.
Excellent menu. Excellent service.
by Nathan H.
As per recommendation from the acclaimed Mike M., get the Paneed Oysters appetizer, substituting extra oysters for the shrimp. The world will be your... amazing little sea creature.
Ask for Mike M. He is fantastic! He gave us a list a cool hang outs outside of the quarter to give us another perspective. He will take good care of you.

Thursday night is Oso Bucco night.

This is the best place to eat in New Orleans but it also might be the most costly. As a poor college student I just had dessert and they treated me like queen.
Only come here if you're okay with waiting 1.5+ hours

Mussels were incredible. Duck was delicious. Creme Brûlée good.

St. Philip and chartres, not bourbon!

And even if they call you to confirm your reservation, they will give your table for seven away - fifteen minutes overdue
by Stephanos B.
This is an Italian not Indian restaurant!
by Anne R.

by Angela F.

by Danielle C.

by Marty W.

by Tammy G.
The pasta is devine. Ask for David or Sonny as your server, they know how to take care of guests
by Bo M.
Try the fresh fish of the day crevette. Yummy!!!
by Mary W.
Had a reservation and still waited over an hour for a table. It is a very popular place. Delicious food. Very cramped quarters but great table service. Joseph was our server and he was top notch.
by Keith C.
By far the best of everything. I love this place and take anyone from out of town here for sure.
the service? Max was superb and cute.
no reservations, and we got a table immediately. mostly locals (perhaps the time of the yr?). the food was fantastic: soft shell crab, meatballs, duck w raspberry confit, and the cheesecake, very good
1 of the Top 3 Filet Mignons I have ever had, including Keens, Ruth Chris, and more. Paired with a perfectly spicy Cabernet.
by Jeremy T.
When Soft Shell crab is in season, this place does it well: lightly battered, lemon, parsely, butter, almonds, paprika, touch of salt.
by Jeremy T.
Excellent food and exceptional service....make a reservation...this place is popular with locals and tourists alike.
by Christopher S.
by Gregory M.
Order anything on the menu. It will be wonderful. I know, because I ordered everything and asked for it to be topped with oysters. WOW!
by Tamela C.
Extremely long wait....the environment is very sleepy. Arrive early, be prepared to wait at least an hour without a reservation.
Be prepared to WAIT. We had a reservation & were seated 45 minutes after the actual reservation time. Once seated, service was fantastic & food tasty. All in all worth it, but don't go if in a hurry.
by Jacque M.
Make sure to make a reservation -- even with ours made, we had to wait an additional 40mins to be seated at 9:30PM.
