Due to high volumes of traffic in the Cafe, we can not always guarantee seating at a specific reservation time. Although we are using the word "reservations", in fact, our guests are being put on a list. Our guests, on a weekend, will often encounter a wait. If you have a party larger than 6, please call 919-833-8898 to make a reservation. During holidays, reservations need to made via phone (919-833-8898) and will not be available via OpenTable.
Food was excellent, prices are fair. The seating leaves something to be desired if you don’t get a booth. Tables are very close together. Music was way too loud and made conversation difficult. Service wasn’t great, but our server seemed to be the exception. Other servers appeared to be on top of things.
The food was fresh and local with diverse choices to accommodate various diets and preferences. The band - Longleaf Pine Nuts - was great when we could hear them, but we were sitting toward the back as we were with friends and wanted to be able to chat. The atmosphere was upbeat and the service was exceptional.
Not just for vegetarians any more! Lots of variety on the menu. Our party had duck, shrimp and grits, pasta and empanadas. Daughter has celiac and they were able to accommodate her dietary restrictions.
Great food and a chill at
server way over booked too many tables cakes, wine bills NO HELP from other staff our wine came out slow slow the foods too fast and the waiter not available food stayed uncleared way long and like I said staff especially the door manager did nothing to pitch in
I was very excited for the gluten free waffles it when I began to ate them they were not cooked all the way. Our waiter never came back by to check on us.
This place was Hoppin! There was live music while we ate. The food was delish but the service was a bit off. There weren’t enough menus for us so our group of 6 had to share 2 menus, they brought us water but never took a drink order, they took away dirty silverware but didn’t replace it until after the main meal was served and we asked for them. Otherwise this was worth the missteps and we would definitely go again. It was fun and delicious!
We have enjoyed Irregardless food and entertainment for several years, and always want to return for more of the same. When we have guests visiting from LA, Boston, New Hampshire, or Chicago this is always our first choice. Keep up the good work!
It did get a little noisy at the table next to us. I filled my own water glass twice and was never offered a refill. Overall it was wonderful.
It's always an enjoyable meal at Irregardless - and we've been going there for over 40 years!
Had a bad experience as my food was microwaved. My wife ordered a penne pasta and it was dripping with oil. There was a puddle of oil on the bottom of the plate The pasta itself was very dry and crunch. It was unedible. The gigner ale was overpriced. My wife ordered iced tea and the syrup provided was not sweet enough and seemed watered down. The tables beside us were inches away and the waitress kept hitting me on the elbow walking ny. That's how tight knit it was...
Irregardless again served a marvelous meal. I had the brisket special and it just fell apart with a touch of the fork, so very tasty. The music was outstanding and we all had a wonderful time..
The food was so good that our monthly lunch group wants to come back in two months! One of our group said there are other things on the menu she wants to try.
I've been going to Irregardless Cafe for years. It is still one of my all time favorites!
As vegan patrons, my wife and I ordered the strawberry pecan salad. It was so saturated in oil we could not eat it. Never thought anyone could mess up a salad. With that being said, I believe this was a reflection of a particular chief and not the restaurant. We have been patrons for twenty years and have been pleased with Irregardless Cafe and will continue to eat there as they are an excellent restaurant. They just missed the mark this time.
It was a wonderful experience. The service could have been a little better but the food and music was outstanding. We will be back again
I had not been in a while and I have a renewed excitement about going back!
We always enjoy Irregardless Cafe. We like the diversity of the menu, especially options for vegans, GF and even dairy free for some of our dining partners. Wine list is fairly varied and with reasonable prices. Personally, we would like to see a couple more good roses, but their overall list of wines by the glass is very nice. Food almost always hits the mark. Noise level is a bit high during dinner such that it can be difficult to converse; but, the music is always good and it is a pleasant addition. We keep going back because it is a great little neighborhood gem and we know we will not be disappointed. Thanks, Irregardless, for a consistently nice evening out!
Irregardless is our go to restaurant for out of town guests! It never disappoints! We’ve been going for 15 years!
I came here with a friend for their first visit to Irregardless, and everything was outstanding, from cocktails, to appetizers (vegetable empanadas), salad (shrimp & citrus), entree (woodland pie), and dessert (chocolate layer cake with espresso glaze). I'm glad I had someone with whom to split things so we had room for dessert! The decor is friendly, and the live music is enjoyable without being obtrusive. Finally, the menu is extremely vegetarian-friendly, and the restaurant has a parking lot in a busy part of Raleigh. All of this makes coming here a pleasure!
Incredible food, eclectic menu(something for EVERYONE!), impeccable service, really cool atmosphere.....and music every single night. What more can you ask for?!
Another great night at Irregardless. Ricardo provided great service and the food never disappoints.
Incredible food, excellent service and enjoyable atmosphere.
Fantastic, personable service; food fresh and aesthetically pleasing. Ambiance warm and made us wanted to stay longer, but we left so our fantastic waitress could continue serving others. I would recommend heartily to friends. We are from out of town and this is our third visit.
We love Irregardless! The wait staff is so warm and friendly, the food is great and we even get to hear love music! And, of course, on birthdays and anniversaries you get a free bottle of wine!
Always a fine experience at Irregardless and Easter Sunday dinner was another great time for us.
Great food as always. Nice atmosphere. Liked the live music as well.
Food, atmosphere and service was outstanding! Highly recommend!
Another great meal at Irregardless. We are recent converts to plant based eating and having such a great location that can satisfy us and our meat eating friends is a real plus. The music adds to the atmosphere and makes for a fun night out.
A lovely dinner before going to Theater in the Park.
Birthday celebration good food great chocolate birthday cake!!
I have a family of vegans and non-vegans. Irregardless' menu pleases everyone. First time we've done the brunch and loved it. Service and food were excellent. We plan to try to get reservations for Thanksgiving/Christmas Eve.
We should go more often. Food was great. Everyone had something that fit their pallet. Service was great.
Great menu selection for everyone....since in our party we had one that needed gluten free, two that needed vegan, and two who wanted some sort of meat dish....waiter was outstanding....a great little restaurant....music was nice too.
We have been going there everytime we are in town. On special occasions we go to Raleigh just to go here. Mr Gordon has been doing awesome here for many years! Thank you.
Great place to reconnect with friends haven’t seen in a while.
I love eating at Irregardless Cafe. The specials are always tasty.
We took friends here who hadn't been before and they also loved it. One of our favourite restaurants.
