And the garden salad with lemon tahini dressing...and the ambience! Irregardless is a gem. The food, the staff and the ambience converge to make a consistently great and nourishing dining experience. There are many great restaurants in the triangle but Irregardless remains our favorite! We also really enjoyed the harp music on our evening there.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLove to listen to live musicLove to listen to live music while dining. It adds to the experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time at IrregardlessThe layout, service and feel were perfect. The food could have been a little better (our omeletes were a little bland), but overall we really enjoyed the restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous EntreesI had not been tothe Irregardless Cafe for a while and was pleasantly surprised at the menu. There were a lot of choices and we loved our entrees. I had the Morgan Street Chicken which was a flattened chicken breast with a delicate crunchy crust nicely seasoned! My sister had the Steak in Peppercorn Sauce and it could not have been more delicious. There cobbler dessert was also very good. Service was exceptional and it was a busy night! The music did not take over as it had in the past. Compliments to the Chef!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI've been to Irregardless several times and enjoyed it on each occasion. This Saturday, however, my family and I celebrated my graduation with a brunch there and it was beyond satisfactory. My parents had never been and were so impressed that they are interested in coming back (a statement that means a lot since the menu is priced a little higher than we normally pay).
Very charming, awesome food, good service, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. You can't go wrong. We will be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and differentWaitress was helpful, food was very good, and dessert was great5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI do wish you could hear theI do wish you could hear the band, but because of all the noise of the patrons talking, it was impossible...5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOrrRegardlessVery good food great atmosphere and service. Dry good5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs others have mentioned,As others have mentioned, the turnover rate at Irregardless Cafe is variable, based on the live music of the day. There were no tables for 2 available when we arrived, so we took a "shelf table" in the bar area. We felt a little crammed, the wait staff were frequently working right in front of us, and our view of the musician was partially obstructed. However, my husband and I enjoyed sitting side by side for a change. We had the Vidalia Onion flatbread, which was quite good though perhaps a little oily, Seafood Linguini and Paella, which were both delicious, but not the best we've had, and the Lemon Semi-Freddo, a very unique and refreshing dessert - I highly recommend it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingI loved the taste and the presentation. Our meals were delicious and prepared in a healthy way. Loved it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNow I know.Always heard Irregardless was a great restaurant and finally tried it. I can easily see why it is so loved by it's legion of fans. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a vegan and my husbandI am a vegan and my husband is a carnivore. The menu had wonderful options for both of us. The Middle Eastern platter and vegan lasagna were excellent. Local ingredients are used and the favor of the food is exquisite. We can wait to return to try other items on the menu.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with live jazzOur group of four visited Irregardless for dinner on Friday evening. We split a bottle of wine (based on a recommendation from our server). After placing our order for salads and entres we asked for a wine recommendation. The wine complimented our four very-different entres nicely. I had a house salad and chicken pad Thai. The Pad Thai was flavorful withou being overly hot. It was complimented with a wide selection of fresh vegetables cooked into a classic rice noodle Pad Thai. Hats off to the kitchen for coming up with a unique and flavorful twist on a common dish. All in our party had similar pleasant dining experiences. Our server was excellent. The live jazz trio was a great compliment for ambiance.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMost enjoyable eveningWe found our first visit to the Irregardless Cafe to be very enjoyable, to include a very nice menu of moderately priced entrees. We did have an early reservation (6 pm) and upon our arrival were warmly greeted and seated at a table of our choosing. The restaurant filled quickly and the Jazz music started promptly at 6:30 pm., with a very enjoyable selection of songs. Our entree choices arrived and exceeded our expectations on presentation, taste, and amount of food. Overall a very good experience and we plan to return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints. ConsistentlyNever disappoints. Consistently an intimate dining experience...great
food, relaxing music, courteous and friendly staff. My favorite
spot in Raleigh. Great location for a superb dinner before leaving for a play or concert at BTI. I must confess it is often I would refrain from the latter in order to remain at Irregardless !4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA Funky Fun Dinning ExperienceIn addition to the quality of the food, the presentation is also very good. Normally vegetables are treated as after thought in many average restaurants. Not here. Because this restaurant had its beginnings as a vegetarian restaurant, it has maintained the quality and taste of the vegetable dishes.
What makes this restaurant fun is that they have jazz as dinner music and later the band expands to standards jazz dance music. There is a small dance floor that is created as tables are cleared.
The whole restaurant vibe is more a Cabaret environment. Everyone is friendly. There are no other restaurants like this in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMust Go to PlaceGreat place for everything you can want. All items are prepared from the freshest ingredients. Great live music every night. The place has a great feel. Very diverse menu with daily specials. Excellent service.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Irregardless. Very closeLove Irregardless.

We love Irregardless!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want something different...Food is always excellent and very unique, inventive. Service is quite probably among the best in Raleigh. Portions are very generous. We always take some home.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table for four was intimate,Our table for four was intimate, comfortable and far enough away from the jazz ensemble so that we could easily hear each other. The waitress, Olga, was superb with an excellent knowledge of the menu and food preparation. The space between courses was well-timed and we never felt rushed. Great evening with great friends. Thanks.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed with the service or the food at Irregardless. Both are high quality. It's always well worth the extra bit of driving time that is required for us to get there. Unfortunately our table was right next to the entrance this last visit. It was somewhat noisy and we all ended up putting our coats on to stay warm with the door draft. However, that wil not keep us from a return visit. We'll just know to ask to be seated elsewhere!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant!We loved the lively jazz music! Food was excellent! Service was wonderful!

Few restaurants last for over 30 yrs but Irregardless has survived because the food is outstanding, the service is friendly, the portions are good, and the prices are reasonable. Over the years the menu has changed to suit the changing tastes of the foodies. His menu is complete, varied, interesting and there should be a dish or two on the menu for even the pickiest eater. His food is actually healthy too!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been there on a date,We've been there on a date, and thought enough of the experience to take some out-of-state guests there too!
