    Consistently good. $175 for three people and no drinks and no leftovers. I can taste the quality ingredients. Sometimes at these price points, you want to be wowed. And this being my third visit, the wow is less and less. Server forgot our wine (or didn’t hear because it was wicked noisy today), and service was very mediocre. Fresh fish was fried and a little bland. Catfish and grits were delicious. Steak was delicious. Both salads and sourdough bread were good enough. Nothing super great, but quality food.

    I really enjoyed this restaurant for brunch. The ambiance was really good. There was a guitarist playing live music, but at a very low volume so i was able to Still have a conversation with others without yelling, but with great background music. Also, I had the salmon eggs Benedict, which was cooked well especially the English muffin which often at other establishments is burned and made difficult to cut. The scones in ahead of traditional rolls or bread are also a nice touch.

    What a great spot - so pleasant and sweet. Amazing food with a “just large enough” menu focused on fresh ingredients. The staff were so kind and lovely. Live music (talented vocalist w a guitar) was a very nice touch. Highly recommend.

    First time back to Irregardless in a year. Surprised that early Saturday eve 6p was sooooo energetic and loud. BIG wkd with graduations and Mother's Day. Meanwhile, cocktails and Mushroom Vauduvan were excellent !! Thanks for having such a lovely vegetarian AND gluten free option. It's rare I can have a creative dinner that is so thoughtfully prepared. I will return sooner and not later. :)

    Unfortunately really underwhelming. The reviews were so high and I was so excited! Decor and indoor vibe is not what I would expect, but it wasn’t terrible - nothing to write home about. Our hostess, server, and other attendants were just there… working. Our hostess just walked us to seat, no conversation or discussion of the restaurant. Our server lost her voice - understandable but no one else came to talk and check in on us. I got the chicken dish - it was a whole chicken. Flavors were different - unique, almost like a curry but not. Apples were good. Portion was unexpectedly large but actual chicken was meh. My boyfriend got the steak. We think it was sous vide but they didn’t do it well. It tasted bland. Watermelon feta was good and refreshing - hard to go wrong there. Overall, underwhelming for a birthday dinner.

    Our meal was phenomenal. One of the best meals of my life. We ordered the spinach dip, mushroom vandouvan, spanakopita, brussels sprouts, and chocolate mousse cake. Every bite was amazing. The mushroom dish was especially decadent and I was delighted to see that it was vegan. We are trying to eat more plant-based meals, so we booked our anniversary dinner here and I am beyond glad that we did. We will certainly be back. 10/10 highly recommend.

    We have been here many times. It use to be our go to place, since being sold to new owners the menu is not as good as it was with the original owners. Please bring back the hummus platter! Server was just okay, when she came to our table she was in a hurry to move on. Not sure we will return which is sad, because it use to be a favorite of ours.

The salmon was amazing, as was the side salad. I actually didn't know that a simple side salad could be so delicious. Thank you!
