I have always loved Irregardless, but of late the noise level is so high that it's no longer a pleasant place to eat. Last night we had been seated close to the musicians. We were a group of six and there didn't seem to other tables large enough for us. We couldn't carry on a conversation and I had to... More

We ate dinner at the Irregardless Café a while back, and it was generally not a positive experience – the food wasn't very good, and the service wasn't friendly or helpful. However, we assumed it must have been a bad night, given the other good reviews, and we decided to visit for brunch. A friend of ours was playing some... More

I had dinner here with friends and we all thought the place was excellent-and it was. I had lunch there the other day and although I had the same meal it had some flaws. It's a chicken item-but the portion of roast potatoes to sauted spinach was silly. I had about 2 small bites of spinach and then a plate... More

A delightful Sunday brunch. All items are $12-15, and include coffee, a tiny fresh squeezed OJ, and breakfast breads (pictured). They specialize in frittatas (like an egg pizza, or more accurately, open-faced omelette... Also pictured). Service was good, food was good (but a bit expensive), and they had LIVE background music at 10am on Sunday, giving it a nice atmosphere.... More

Marvelous menu. Superb recommendations. Sterling reviews. Add in our 25th anniversary and we were eagerly anticipating our meal here on a Tuesday night in June. It must have been a bad night for the kitchen. Aside from a cheerful exuberant hostess, our experience here was mediocre at best. Staff was droll and unenthusiastic. Our food, served quickly early on a... More

Loved this place! It is a little more on the expensive side but worth. We had excellent service and got to sit outside on a gorgeous day. I ordered a small plate and it was more the enough food. we both loved our food. Can't wait to go back.

Always delicious with quality ingredients. Some nights there are live music performing, which is fun. Parking is easy cross the street in a parking lot. Reservation is recommended.

Our family dined here years ago on Thanksgiving & it was disappointing but our Father's Day dinner was amazing! Creative menu with outstanding choices as well as great friendly service, delicious fresh food and relxed atmosphere without rushing guests. Try the Mediterranean platter, the butterbean pate is so good. Going on a holiday can be tricky, but we made a... More
