Great menu with flavorful items.
First time for me and the food and service was awesome! I'm on a certain calorie deficit diet plus I have food allergies and this was the best for both. We had reservations for dinner and they got us right in with no wait. The menu had great choices for dinner and dessert. I would highly recommend it to everyone!
Hands down the best dining in experience since Covid hit. Great service and great food
It's somewhat difficult to review a restaurant during the pandemic! The atmosphere is totally different inside due to occupancy limits. The menu is often limited. Hours can be limited. Etc. Overall, we felt like this restaurant did a great job of helping us to feel as safe as possible while dining inside. They had removed a lot of tables to provide spacing and they were cleaning well.
The food was great! I had the shrimp and grits and LOVED it. I'm new to southern food and this was a big hit for me. My husband had the spanakopita and it was also very good. My cocktail was swanky and delish. Our server was appropriately attentive. We loved that they had some meat and seafood options and not JUST veg food. Makes it easier to bring a group of meat eaters and veg eaters alike and everyone should find something they like. We will come back!
OMG - awesome, as usual. Hard to find a joint in Raleigh with food this good, service this amazing, and a wine list this affordable. They ROCK!
Irregardless has some of the best creations and freshest, most delicious healthy food in North Carolina. They used to have live music all the time in their family-style dining room, which made the experience all the more wonderful and offered ambiance and atmosphere to their incredible food. BUT...we make the 45 minute trek JUST for the food. It's wonderful for gluten-free, vegetarians, vegans and omnivores alike.
We ordered a couple of the vegan menu choices and they were both very tasty. I love calamari, and out of curiosity ordered the vegan calamari as an appetizer. It was amazing! I highly recommend this place, and will be back to try the other dishes in the menu. Great service too!
Amazing as always. As vegans, we always have a difficult time finding restaurants that have offerings for us as well as our omnivore friends. Irregardless Cafe never fails to disappoint!
Joshua was our server and he was a good guy. Did a great job.
This was my first time being back to Irregardless since the new owners took over and I was not disappointed. I feel like the menu has been expanded while still staying true to what has made Irregardless a Raleigh favorite for years. My food was amazing and the service was lovely!! Highly recommend going!
Amazing experience, tremendous service and food was as good as advertised. Live music was a good touch, not too loud and enjoyable,
Irregardless Cafe never disappoints. There are new menu items to choose from each and every time we go, which is often. This past week, we enjoyed delicious speciality cocktails along with vegan spinach dip, warm pita and calamari (fried mushrooms). Pasta, tofu, beef, roasted vegetables are just some of the findings. The atmosphere is inviting even amidst COVID. There are delectable items for all kinds of appetites! And the prices are reasonable too. We encourage others to support this classic Raleigh establishment.
First time after hearing so much about the restaurant. I was very impressed, first how clean the restaurant was....Presentation of the food. Just impressed with the food plate. Will come back.
Great place; great atmosphere; great service; great food!
Service and food were fantastic! Ambiance is very nice. My only suggestion is that in December it is quite unpleasant to have the air conditioning blowing cold air on us when we were seated inside. Will definitely be back.
Delicious breakfast! Kale omelette kept me going through the day. Service was very attentive. Enjoyed the overall experience.
Food was great loved the vibe. Sat outside with a group of friends for brunch.
I ate with family on the patio for a Saturday brunch. The experience was great! Food was excellent, safety measures were in place, and service was top notch. Another great meal at Irregardless!
Always a nice atmosphere here. Live music most nights adds to the overall sound level, but that's part of the draw. Food was good but not great for the price. Overall a nice experience. Covid-19 has everyone in a non-ideal situation...
My partner and I went there for our 20th anniversary. The service was impeccable and the salmon as well as the rib-eye were excellent. I’m not a fan of Brussels sprouts but the way the chef prepared them gave the dish a succulent taste. I love going there to celebrate special events or just for a nice dinner when wanting to go out.
Always an incredible menu - seasonal, fresh, all varieties of diets and restrictions can be accommodated deliciously. Very Pandemic friendly, great indoor socially distanced seating and outdoor seating as well. Such a fan of this Raleigh iconic staple!
Glazed salmon and apple salad were delicious. Chardonnay worked well with meal. Guest had quinoa and loved it. Guest wanted coffee drink and try he waiter had the bartender come talk to her. What was created was wonderful.
The interior and exterior have changed dramatically since we were there last. The exterior seating has tripled, and the interior has changed so much as to be almost unrecognizable. Stage is gone. Stripped down atmosphere due to COVID-19 I’m certain.
Menu is also stripped down but still quite good.
The food was excellent as always and great service.
It was an amazing experience. Food and service outstanding!
Still the absolute best restaurant in Raleigh hands down.
My friend and I were really looking forward to trying this cafe due to it's focus on sustainability and dietary options. However I doubt we will eat at this restaurant again.
The vegan calamari was very tasty, made from fried oyster mushrooms and served with cocktail sauce and remoulade. I chose the beet salad as my entree and although the size was adequate, the flavor was lacking. The beet noodles were raw, unseasoned and difficult to eat. The pecans weren't candied and the squash was mushy. My friend ordered the shrimp and grits and did not enjoy it. She said it was way too rich and the sauce too thick. We did hear a customer next to us rave about the chili relleno.
Service was friendly and they did a good job adhering to Covid precautions. The atmosphere wasn't very good, furnishings similar to a Denny's. On a Wednesday evening, besides one couple, we were the only customers. Overall, just okay.
The patio service was excellent. Servers were mindful of safety of guests, and I appreciated that Irregardless posted clear messaging to also protect their employees. With all the masking and distancing we were still made to feel welcome and treated warmly. We asked for recommendations and got helpful input to make our selections. The menu currently has some limits but still enough variety to suit most tastes. The food was wonderfully prepared and presented. Everything was tasty, and we enjoyed a leisurely, multi-course meal. It is currently hard to find a balance of being careful but finding enjoyable outings. This was a fantastic evening out!
Food and service as good as it always has been. No issues with social distancing and outside dining is available
The waiter was more involved with conversations at other tables and seemed annoyed to be waiting on us. This restaurant was one of our first dates almost 20 years ago, and I don’t know that I would bother going back based on this last experience. There are restaurants that act like they appreciate our patronage. With that said, the food and wine were great.
Safe was knowable and answered all our question
Food was excellent/ everyone at my table was pleased with their meal.
We always enjoy visiting Irregardless for our special occasions.
Original paella was excellent with nicely crisped crust around the pan. Attentive and efficient service. Lots of unique vegan options.
Excellent lunch with great salad. Quiet dinning for good discussions.
Delicious food, great location (easy to find parking), wonderful and friendly service. The live music was excellent.
It was our first date and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to go
Nice evening. Great band, food and service. It does get loud here though.
Loved the Jazz again. Only our second visit, this time we brought friends. Cool jazz played as we dined on farm to table vittles. I think the food was presented in an attractive way. It came VERY short time after being ordered. Server seemed new and a tad unsure. But he delivered as required.
