We recently had dinner on a Saturday night at Irregardless and we wrongly assumed that the vegetarian entrees would be stellar. How wrong we were. My acorn stuffed squash was served cold (it was a hot dish) and 2 of us had to send it back. Only one of the 4 of us had an edible dinner. The temperature of... More

My husband and I, out of towners, went for dinner. The food was amazing! We both had the Mahi and my husband said it was the best Mahi he's ever had. The portions were generous w/out being obscene. I'm gluten, dairy and soy free and it was not an issue. The hostess and our waitress were very friendly and attentive.... More

Very well themed place. Food is amazing and the live music is an added plus. The thing that stands out the most was the service we got as we walked through the door. The menu was well explained and full of flavor. The drinks were great and well thought of. Overall this was a great experience. A little higher priced... More

I took a couple of clients to Irregardless yesterday for lunch and it was really good. My entre was the seafood linguini and it was very tasty. Could have used a little more seafood, but it was adequate. One of my guests has the Chile Relleno and said it was excellent. The beer menu wasn't extensive, but well thought. Our... More

The food is fresh, flavorful and the staff is very knowledgeable. They locally source as much food as possible, and even have their own community garden. I have never been disappointed. They also have entertainment nightly. The entertainment varies from blues to jazz to light rock..,. Everyone that goes there on my recommendation has enjoyed it and gone back

Was so excited to try as its a highly rated restaurant in Raleigh. Food was good, not great. Service was good, not great. Environment was good, not great. The mushroom duck flatbread was very amazing though. But high $$$ for good but not great. Will go once in a while but not a fave.

The are not many food options in walking distance around the cafe location for lunch. It's great because they have little competition and rightfully so the menu is diverse and the food itself doesn't disappoint. It is another place you can visit several times because there are a lot of great choices on the menu.

Dined on a Friday night; made a reservation for 6:00 and glad we did, because the restaurant was filled shortly thereafter. I enjoyed the salmon with glaze over a quinoa cake and asparagus. Absolutely delicious! Service was exceptional. A friend and I split a salad with peaches and goat cheese. Our server was happy to have the chef place it... More
