My husband and I chose the ICM as the Rehearsal Dinner venue for our son and our now new daughter-in-law. One week after the event, our overall opinion of our ICM experience....ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!Sent on 05/28/2017
Owner Matthew was friendly, welcoming, professional and organized in all our dealings. His sons Luke, Jacob and Michael did it ALL..and with smiles on their faces! They were great with communication and coordination. They were brilliant with set-up, bartending, serving, timing of the meal, background music (N.O. Jazz!), cleanup, and a million other things we aren't even aware of!
For the dinner itself, we chose the ICM in-house catering, which was a fabulous combination of Irish, New Orleans, and Cajun dishes, with a little Honduran too (Empanandas)!
We also incorporated boiled crawfish as a major "appetizer". Matthew was super cooperative about that - meeting ahead of time with our son's choice of crawfish caterer (Chef Justin at Bevi Seafood).
About the ICM as a venue: there were a total of 60 guests (several kids and babies) and we all sat comfortably at tables in the charming courtyard. It was a warm evening, but we had access to all three air-conditioned rooms: an upstairs room used as a retreat for Moms and babies, a second room used as a sort of "movie lounge" for kids, and the third room which is the ICM's delightful St. Pat's Pub where our happy guests enjoyed an open bar.
The ICM offered us the perfect combination of New Orleans hospitality in a cozy, welcoming, informal and inviting space. It's a wonderful alternative to a restaurant for a small, intimate, special event.
It was a magical night for our son and his bride. We give the ICM our highest recommendation!

They were absolutely amazing! We were looking for a courtyard (but something with shade and air flow) because we wanted to get married in New Orleans in the summer time. We had never seen or heard to this little hidden jewel until looking for a venue for our ceremony! After googling a bunch of courtyards and going visit, we came across this one! When we got there, I ditched the rest of the places scheduled for later that day! This is exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful slate floors, well shaded, great air flow, but even more importantly the people that worked there were amazing. They were kind and welcoming!! Once meeting them and seeing how beautiful this venue was, we new this was perfect for us!Sent on 08/16/2014
They were even kind enough to help us with the next things to find on our list. They gave us some recommendations on officiants, hotels, and other vendors needed. Thanks for all of you help and helping to celebrate our special day!

This place is absolutely beautiful and made the perfect place for my wedding! The family was extremely nice and helpful and made sure everything was perfect!! Even while all the chaos was going on with my wedding they made it a point to close me and my new husband off from the crowd to sit us down and have a moment to ourselves and serve us some food to make sure we had something to eat. I found that to be so heart warming and personal that I will remember that forever!! The food was absolutely delicious and home made!!! Their son Luke was our DJ and did such a good job with our music list and the transitioning he was great!!! The whole experience was perfect, it even rained and the venue was so perfectly covered that it didn't seem to bother anybody!!! I am so glad my planner recommended this place.Sent on 03/17/2014
