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.

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.
The food was excellent, all 4 of us loved everything we ordered. We had one vegetarian and one picky person with us. We all shared vegan appetizers and they were great. The cocktails were creative and delicious. The atmosphere is cozy but not crowded. We will be back.
My husband and I are on a Whole Food Plant Based diet and Irregardless Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants. Thank you for the great food selection, the freshness and quality of the foods offered and for the wonderful food preparation and presentation. Irregardless is a gem!
I haven't been here in years and I thought I'd pay a visit. The quality is as good as I remembered and the live jazz trio was a plus. Old, friend, I won't stay away so long.
We had reservations but were seated at a high table next to the bar. Food and service was good as it always is.
The place was overcrowded, the noise level and music was making it difficult to have a conversation. The lamb chops we ordered were so tough, we had to use our fingers to bite into the meat.
Yet another wonderful meal at Irregardless! Accommodating, friendly, efficient, and helpful. And also delicious!
One of our favorite restaurants. Always excellent!
The ambiance is great with live music. It’s just loud enough, no issue with hearing your dinner partners. The food is fantastic! We had the BBQ calamari, which is served with coleslaw. So unique and delicious. The vegan sex salad was beautiful and good as well as the vegan Bolognese. Highly recommend.
Great food and service. Wonderful vegan and vegetarian options. Fabulous flavors!
It was great
Girlfriend visiting from Michigan wanted good shrimp and grits and Irregardless did not disappoint! The music was enjoyed and service was attentive....everything great!
Irregardless never disappoints. Even under new ownership, the food quality and restaurant ambience remained the same. The service was impeccable and the soft live jazz music at dinner time is the icing on the cake. From appetizer to dessert, loved every morsel. I enjoyed a daily special while my husband feasted on a timeless menu item. Fresh ingredients, aptly seasoned! A real treat every time we go.
Server was prompt and helpful and knowledgeable. Food was quick and tasty. I am sometimes unsure of the "small plates" category, but I got one of them and a salad and it was a perfect amount. The live music was fine, but not my style.
Always love coming to Irregardless. Just hate the tables being on top of each other. Hard to have a conversation.
Salmon was out of this world, delicious.
Absolutely perfect evening with an out of town friend! So accustomed to visiting Irregardless for lunch. This was the first time that I has gone for dinner and we both had a wonderful time. My visitor even mentioned how wonderful the music was. She was particularly impressed with the non-meat substitute that ‘passed’ for a meat taste (it was the first day of Lent) and we both had a perfectly wonderful time. Could not have been better!
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Happy to see that Gordon's and Anya's vision and passion for healthy food is continuing on.
Great service, food, and music. Always a great experience!
It was an okay experience overall. Won’t recommend to for special occasions as the space could be an issue and you may end up getting the seat cramped in the corner which was the case with us at our anniversary.
Food excellent - service impeccable. Only downside was sitting right at the speakers next to the stage. Music was good but a little hard to hear...
Food and ambiance weren't in line with prices. Restaurant would benefit from acoustic panels with live music.
Have never had a bad meal here. We have been coming here since the late ‘70s. Always a delicious treat.
Great location for great food and atmosphere. It gets busy so it’s best to get a reservation.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere. This needs to be 50 characters.
It is always a treat to visit Irregardless Cafe when in Raleigh. The flavor of the food and customer service is excellent.
This Raleigh staple never disappoints. Morgan St chicken is consistently good, and for a change I tried the vegan zoodle bolognese and it was fabulous. Irregardless is our go to place for birthday celebrations.
It always been a favorite spot and still is
Very friendly, homey atmosphere and good food, attentive service.
I love Irregardless! The food meets my dietary restrictions of vegan and gf. The atmosphere is always bubbly and comfortable. The live music is entertaining but not overwhelming. It's one of my favorite, happy places.
We had a group of six for dinner at Irregardless Cafe on Sunday, February 16, and the meals were delicious. Six different entrees were ordered and every one of them was just perfect. The service by Karen was very good. We will be back often, I do hope! It was such a nice evening out with family and friends.
The food was just okay yet it was very pricey. I don't mind paying for great food. This was not great food.
Awesome place, loved the live jazz. I will be returning.
Wonderful Jazz music! Nice vibe good for any occasion: date, friends, family... Check out their drink menu!
