The Cafe: What People are Saying
A friend and I had a wonderful dinner on Thursday, and the bottle of wine for my birthday topped it off! Thanks so much for a wonderful evening and also for serving great food for all these years!
I came to the Irregardless Café the first day it opened. From the beginning, they have served the freshest, finest food in a charming atmosphere. You always know the food is going to be fresh.
Can't think of a single lunch, brunch or dinner that was not simply delicious.…My family always makes sure we dine there on my birthday.
We had our second date here over 20 years ago. Irregardless is the place where, literally, when I walk in the door the tension melts away. It's just like being home.
Please accept my kudos for a wonderful evening at your restaurant last Tuesday. I had 5 business guests in from California who were "wowed" by what they experienced. The wait staff was very professional and available, but not overbearing. My guests were still talking about the quality of the food and music as they left on Thursday. Your restaurant and staff are certainly instrumental in elevating the stature of Raleigh, North Carolina!

Congratulations to you all for all these years of inspired food, the taste of which has stayed in this customer's memories for so many years!
On Friday night, due to a mishap in our plans, my daughter and I found ourselves faced with having to eat dinner and still get the theater by 7:50PM. The best she could do for a reservation (at the last minute) was 6:45PM. We were both wondering how we would be able to accomplish this. Your restaurant was packed but when I told the Hostess of our plight, she suggested that we could get waited on faster if we didn't mind sitting in the bar area. This was great with us. The bartender waited on us and knew of our situation. It took all the pressure off as he had us fed and ready to go within half an hour. The food was fantastic. That was my third visit to your restaurant and I look forward to coming again on my next visit to Raleigh.
I just wanted to email you that I visited the Irregardless Cafe last Thursday night and really enjoyed the music. They were terrific, and appealed to both myself and my daughter -- and that's quite an age spread. The food was excellent, the music was superb, thanks for wonderful evening.
The food is fabulous and the staff is great - a rare combination!

We always enjoy the music and seeing old friends at the Cafe. We both appreciate the way that Irregardless has helped nurture community in our city. Thank you for the delicious meal tonight and for creating such a unique restaurant and continuing to keep it so relevant.
I stopped in for lunch today. I sat at the bar and was waited on by a very pregnant server. She was so kind and attentive. I had a large appetite from my run this morning, but I must say that I was no match for the open-face sandwich. PHEW! I tried, but the sandwich won. It was so darn tasty! (Now I know about the junior portion. I will have to go that route next time!) I enjoyed myself very much.
This Sunday was very special at Irregardless!! Not only were you there to greet and seat us but the food was wonderful. It was the first time meeting the "new" boyfriend and it was a pleasure!! He not only loved the restaurant, he was really taken with the musician!! I even made the comment at brunch----"I wish I could put ALL his music on my Ipod"- which everyone agreed it would be a very good thing!! So many thanks for an enjoyable meal (for all five of us) at Irregardless today!!
We loved the Shrimp bisque/roasted red pepper soup today. Thanks so much. We had three bowls at our table alone!
As usual, our dinner was marvelous. The chicken piccata was just right. The service was great as well. Tell everyone on the Saturday night shift I said thanks a bunch.
Thanks for a fantastic experience. You were able to honor our request for a specific table, you accomodated bringing out the birthday cake I dropped off earlier in the day, fantastic food, great service, amazing bar concoctions, and the usual comforting environment. We will see you again soon.
My wife and I were at Irregardless Café last Saturday night with friends and immensely enjoyed the food and dancing. Thank you for stopping by our table and complimenting my wife and me on our dancing. We had a wonderful time as did our guests.
Eating at the Irregardless Café is kind of a 'front porch' experience. Whether or not we know the other people having dinner, we sense that we are part of a community.

My wife Kay and I are into fine dining, but fine dining doesn't need to be pretentious. The Irregardless Café is casual and warm and the food is excellent!
Just a quick note before we head out. The food was delicious, the service friendly and spot on, the set up was lovely and everything was fabulous. I couldn't have been more thrilled and relaxed and care free. We were in such good hands and everything went smooth as butter!! Thank you thank you thank you.

Thank you and your staff for being open on Christmas. For the first time in 64 years, I was spending the holiday alone. When I saw that one of my favorite restaurants was going to be open, I made my reservation. Although I've eaten alone many times, I was a little nervous about being by myself. Your hostess put my fears to rest as she greeted me as if I was an honored guest. She also pointed out two tables that I might like and let me choose the one I would feel most comfortable with. My waitress also made me feel as if I was as important to her as the other parties she served. My food was served immediately and refills on my Diet Coke came right on cue. Sine then, I've been telling everyone I know about my good experience, while also raving about the Lobster Manicotti and the Chocolate Raspberry Bread Pudding.
