    The food was very good. The service was excellent. The vibe would have been great with a live musician EXCEPT the noise level! Please put some acoustic panels up in the restaurant so we can at least hear the people at our table!!

    We had a great time at Irregardless for a large brunch group. My lox brioche was really good and I also heard that the Hash was very tasty. Our server was also very friendly, attentive and did a great job keeping our large group's food and beverages organized. We will defintely go back for brunch again!

    Great parking options away from downtown. Food was amazing. I had the shrimp linguine and brussels. Server was pleasant. Only gripe was the drink made was kind of weak with crushed ice instead of cubes. An Old fashion and Manhattan are classic drinks and should be with cubes.

    We all loved our dinner at Irregardless! I got the apricot tempeh and it was amazing. Not too sweet and perfect with the veggies. I just could have used a couple more pieces of tempeh. We got spinach and artichoke dip for the table and everyone loved it. Entrees were enjoyed by all as well as the pianist in the background. I highly recommend Irregardless.

    Great place to eat if you're with people who have food restrictions or if you want a place with many options. The food was good, however, I did have a pasta dish with eggplant that was very dry, with not much sauce or flavor, but it was still good. The service was great and the ambiance was perfect for a dinner with friends and family. The prices were a bit on the higher end but not terrible. Overall, had a good experience and would go back again.

    Out of five meals for had problems. Burnt bacon, no toast delivered, cold pancakes, rubbery scrambled eggs! Very disappointing. However, they did redeem themselves by making all fresh meals but that made us late for our next appointment! And it still took asking three different people to finally get the toast!

    Our server, Wes, was great. Vegan egg roll had good flavor and texture. Salmon was mouth-watering with a great tomato sauce. Shrimp fettuccine had tons of shrimp, cooked with just a slight bite. Fettuccine was cooked just right. Guitar player was really good, even played Baby Shark for a little kid nearby!

    I’m gluten free and vegan and there were many menu choices for me. I had a cocktail, appetizers, an entree, and dessert. My date, who isn’t gf or vegan, enjoyed the appetizers and had his favorite seafood entree. He’s 6’6” and was stuffed by the end of the meal. One of my favorite restaurants in the area!

    Loved the vibe and the quality of the food. Two drinks, an appetizer, and two entrees were over $100 with tip, which is, I guess, expected now? It felt a bit steep, but it was a special occasion and worth it. Loved the vibe of our server and the attention to allergies. We don’t have any, but they truly care and it’s embedded into the culture of the restaurant.
