This should be a casual up-scale dining experience. But it kinda sucks. We are not from Raleigh, and based on the reviews thought it would be fantastic four our birthday dinner. The crab dip was good. Our salads were hood. The goat cheese on mine however was not rolled in herbs. Of any kind. It was just fried. Which was... More

She we arrived there was live music playing. A saxophone and a cellist playing dinner type music. The atmosphere is causal though. Everyone in shorts... More

Went there for lunch (semi-official), and found it to be quite decent. The food has a distinct flavor that is different from many other places I have eaten (hard to describe). The service is ok, but it is a little expensive. There is very limited parking in front of the restaurant, but they have a parking lot a little bit... More

It had been years since we had been to Irregardless Cafe due to location (near downtown and NC State), but after the Dix event decided to go for dinner. It was wonderful and we aren't vegetarians or vegans. Something for everyone and the waitstaff are great with suggestions for the "don't like" issues and making recommendations for menu items that...

This is a wonderful farm-to-table restaurant in Raleigh about a mile and a half from WRAL TV station. I had the good fortune to have lunch there today and thoroughly enjoyed the Goat cheese salad with medium rare steak. The steak could have been warmer, but overall the food was delicious and the service (even though we were a group... More

One of the first restaurants to offer excellent vegetarian food in Raleigh. Has changed over the years, but still has great, creative food. My husband, who would prefer to eat at KFC, liked his fish cakes, and my other dining partners loved their chile rellenos and black bean / quinoa burgers.

It was our daughter's birthday and we were in town staying with her. Where would you like to eat brunch, we asked. "Irregardless!" We enjoy trying unfamiliar, local restaurants. So we all piled in the car, including her husband and toddler. Off we went! Well.....we didn't realize that a triathlon was taking place in downtown. After driving down multiple streets... More

From the outside, this looks like a little place. It's much bigger than it looks! Everything we ate was great. Many selections, not just vegan items. Bright, Sunny place. Enjoy!
