It was St. Patrick's Day and the place was packed. I think that is the reason service suffered.
Great food, great service, good wine, live jazz. What’s not to like?
Our waitress seemed like she might not have all of the information about the menu but when we got something that was not as we expected, she immediately had the kitchen remake it without the ingredient and it was without us even asking. The food was outstanding and it was very kind of her to have such prompt and wonderful service recovery. This place really cares that you are thrilled with your food, and we were!
This is definitely a hidden gem. The staff is amazing and they are very helpful with menu items. The band, Blue T, was awesome. Try the Paella!!!
The food was straight amazing.
I have been to Irregardless Cafe a few times with my Mom. We decided to dine with my Dad and this was his first visit. My Mom ordered her usual meal which was great. My Dad and I ordered the Filet Mignon with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley.
When our meals came, both steaks were over cooked. We spoke with the manager and he said the steaks would be re-cooked. When they came out a second time, my steak had fat every where inside the steak and my Dad's was a little better.
I told the manager and showed him my dinner. He said he would take my meal off the bill.
Also, the server we had was not attentive and not helpful at all.
I am so dissatisfied and will not if ever go back to Irregardless Cafe.
First Time in Irregardless and it exceeded my expectations
went on Wednesday evening and was surprised there was a band playing who were really good
The food and service was very good and whilst there was Music we were able to have a good conversation at normal noise level
I recommend highly
Irregardless if you food preference, Irregardless has you covered. If you are lucky enough to dine there when they are serving their vegan lasagna go for it! Even if your not a vegan. The Shrimp and grits and morgan street chicken are winners too.
The live music is always wonderful but if you want to have a conversation you need to ask for a booth . Tables tend to be too close for me.
We eat at IRC regularly because it meets our vegan and carnivore needs.
Wait staff is always on the ball!
This is my 'Go To' restaurant in the Triangle area for most all occasions. Just love this place, atmosphere, food, live music, friendly staff, etc...
Irregardless is always a fun time. The live music sets it above most restaurants. The Vegan, GF options are not just an afterthought. Food, atmosphere all put a smile on your face.
We had a wonderful time. It was perfect for date night. Wonderful ambiance great music and food. I highly recommend it!
Charming, open and welcoming bistro style restaurant. Service was fantastic!! Food was fresh and inventive.
My wife and I are in love with this place. Incredible in everyway.
We came here for a bridal shower and had a blast.
The food was wonderful and the service was absolutely perfect. Our server, Ricardo, was helpful with the menu, perfect timing for our appetizers and entres and has a wonderful personality and sense of humor. We will definitely return.
The food was wonderful! Our waitress was very nice. Had a great time!
We add friends from out of town who were vegan. They loved it. Our waiter was helpful and wonderful
All four of our dishes were incredible! Definitely will be returning soon.
We made a reservation for 7:45 but were not seated until 8:45. We were, however, seated right in front of the musical entertainment, so that was a plus. Even still, Irregardless needs to learn how to effectively reserve tables - it's odd to me that an established restaurant can't seem to manage something as simple as a reservation. Don't accept reservations if you can't honor them within 10 minutes. The service was also nearly nonexistent, our wine came after our appetizer and our waiter visited us only to order and deliver food - a total of maybe 3 times.
Nice surprise! Excellent meal with generous portions at a amazing value. Look forward to returning soon!
My neighbor owns the place (Arthur ) and just have not had the time to visit. We heard great things about the place so we decided to go with my wife for dinner.
We had a great time
The music is always too loud. That is the one draw back.
My husband and I have been eating vegan for about a month and vegan friends recommended here. We tried vegan at another restaurant but it was more raw food and not our thing. But this food was incredible whether you are vegan or not!! I got the vegetables strudel and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. My husband got the Woodland pie and loved it. We will most definitely be back and soon - can't wait!!!!
Fantastic warm goat cheese salad! Place filled up by 5:45 so make sure you have a reservation. Had girl’s night out dinner then comedy show next door after. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Amazingly delicious. The atmosphere was great and the menu was impressive.
I always have a great time at Irregardless. The food, the music, the staff!!
Also, I have special dishes/salads that I can only get there such as the warm goat
salad and the calamari are just the best!
Had a great time!!
We go to Irregardless frequently. We love the food, entertainment, and staff. Highly recommended.
Was not a fan of the falafel.
Sunday supper was perfect
Excellent place. Great food and good music. We’ll return on a very frequent basis. Now our favorite spot in Raleigh.
Food was excellent cooked to perfection & flavors were terrific. Noise level was so high we had trouble talking to persons across the table.
The waitress had a chip on her shoulder from the moment she started serving us. I didn't say anything to my boyfriend about her attitude but he brought it up without me making any comment to him. I made the reservation on-line indicating it was a birthday celebration. When I checked in, I made sure they knew it was a birthday celebration. They told me they knew. Nothing was done to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. When I brought it up to the waitress, she got defensive and just said, "well no one told me about it, all you get is $17 off a bottle of wine". She stood there glaring at me and said, "Well, do you want it?" She offered no apology or no effort to make up for the lack of communication. I apologized to my boyfriend for this error. I expected that he would be getting a dessert (perhaps, even the one I purchased) with a candle in it. I also expected that the staff or band would sing happy birthday. I will not plan to celebrate any other special occasions here.
My twin sister and I celebrated our 60th birthday here. It was absolutely perfect. The drinks, the food, our server Kim and the entertainment. Just awesome. For over 20 years , my husband and I have said we need to come here. Now we are like, why didn't we sooner??
We will definitely be back and it wont be 20 years. My daughter has been here and loves it!
Great food and service but noise level uncomfortable. The food and service was so good that I would return often and not hesitate to recommend it. Addressing the acoustics issue would make the atmosphere more pleasant.
My first time, very enjoyable. Nicolette was a great waitress. Looking forward to returning for lunch soon
Love this place, even after all the new restaurants that have opened in Raleigh.
Too expensive for the experience. Decent food, poor service. It caters to vegetarians, if you're not one or with one, skip it.
Nicolette did a terrific job. Food was good and reasonably priced. Music every night was a plus and noise level was not too loud that dining was impacted. Definitely would recommend for everyday dining.
Always good music, great service, wonderful food. Consistently a good choice for an evening with friends.
