    Our servers were incredibly friendly. The food was incredibly high-quality. Though they are known for vegetarian/vegan dishes, one of us got the beef rib, and it was amazing.

    Always a new experience everytime you go. I have eaten here for years and always bring someone to enjoy that same amazing joy I do. As a vegan it difficult to find food made with so much love. I encourage everyone to try the cookies and cream vegan cheesecake and so much more. Forever loyal customer see you soon

    This is, hands down, my favorite restaurant in Raleigh. It's tried and true, never ever had a bad meal. As someone who eats a vegan diet, this is the best place to get an unbelievably delicious vegan meal (seriously - the chef is crazy good!), and as a bonus there are plenty of wonderful options for the meat eaters in your group, so everyone is happy!

    Mushroom Stroganoff and Mango Salmon were magnificent! Service was prompt and friendly. We did not feel rushed. The live music was pleasant and stayed quietly in the background. Irregardless continues its years of outstanding food and service.

    Drove an hour and a half to eat there and it was totally worth it! Food was amazing, service was outstanding. It’s hard to find a restaurant that is familiar with celiac disease, follows procedures to avoid cross contamination and has amazing gluten free options! Thank you! We will be back. A lot!

    We were pleasantly surprised by our first visit to this neighborhood gem! Parking was not convenient, but was plentiful. Our first impression was - uh oh - but we were greeted graciously and taken to our table where we thoroughly enjoyed our drinks, apeetizers, meals, and dessert. Our waitress, Dara, was informative, thoughtful, courteous and fun to interact with! Our out-of-town guests loved it, as we did, and we will definitely be back.

    Spare ribs were fatty but the small amount of meat was tasty. Asked for a 4 top Booth for two people and we’re told that there too many large groups for us to have one when we had requested this in our reservation and there were 6 available. They sat us at a small 2 top in middle of restaurant and we watched other parties of 2 sit in the 4 top booths. NOT good customer service!

    The flavors in every dish I have had at Irregardless are absolutely amazing. Everything is cooked to perfection. Since half of the menu doesn’t contain gluten, I don’t feel like I’m missing out or having to modify everything just to make something I can eat. The staff is sooo friendly and I love the relaxed vibe!

    This was our first experience at Irregardless, and we appreciated the diverse menu, with vegan options. Everybody got something different, and we all enjoyed our meals. The background noise was a little loud (I had trouble hearing my table mates), but otherwise the ambiance was very nice. We would definitely go back again.

    Great restaurant. Could use updating on the inside. Would be so much better with new floors and tables. Currently seems very old and dull on the inside. Food was decent. Could use more flavor in the mushroom stroganoff (salt and spice can go a long way) and the udon noodle red curry wasn’t that great. The drinks were great. Everything was very overpriced. I would go back but would hope the restaurant would look nicer on the inside. So much potential.
