Went there for lunch after a long afternoon walk. Was pleasantly delighted by the staff's warm greeting, especially since it was 1:30 after peak time for lunch. This place has a warm and inviting decor, the food items that I ate were absolutely delicious and the waitress that served me was amazing and treated me like royalty. What more can... More

We were visiting family who took us there because of the live music feature. Irregardless has music each and every night--sometimes twice a day. We went at night when there was a talented blues singer, Matt Walsh, In the middle of his performance he was asked by the owner because of a customer's request to turn off his mike. We... More

What an excellent meal! Irregardless was recommended to us and it was a great recommendation! We started with a bottle of rosé that was decent, we aren't big rosé drinkers so it was our own mistake. We started with the calamari. It was very different but we really enjoyed it! And what a pile of calamari, I could have made... More

The environment here is very nice - it's a forty year old restaurant with a lot of tradition. It offers a broad range of vegetarian (and vegan) and non-vegetarian fare. Servers offer samples of wines and beers before you order. My wife had a margarita that she had to send back - it was as sweet as a bottle of... More

I took a group of out of town visitors to irregardless because I knew they would be into some of the veggie options on the menu. The service was disappointingly slow for a slow night at the restaurant. The orders were brought out incomplete (moule frites with no frites) and wasn't comped. The checks were incorrect. The food was not... More

Irregardless Cafe is very close to where I live and for some reason I get invited to dine there a lot. I think it is because in our cadre of friends, some of them are vegetarian, some are gluten free, some like meat and some just like to listen to music. Irregardless has all of that. This place caters to... More

Irregardless has an energetic vibe and the jazz duo was very talented and appropriate for the setting. Overall fantastic atmosphere. The food was so so. Started with the artichoke dip which was very good. Ordered the vegan chili rellenos, the chilies was overlooked (seemed stewed) and filled with a dense black bean/rice/corn concoction. OK flavor but not great. We also... More

Wife and I came here tonight for the first time. What a great time and great food. It all started with our outstanding hostess Jessica. We would come back again just because of her. We started with a few cocktails and a side of calamari. Some of the best we had ever had. Lightly breaded with a nice sauce and... More

I took my wife and son to Irregardless. It received good reviews and thought it looked like a great place. First, the restaurant looks like a great place. The atmosphere is great and the live music is a nice addition. My only complaint is that the lights were too bright. Lower lighting and perhaps some candles at the tables would... More
