Stopped in with 8 of our closest friends...many are not Vegetarians. Everything on the menu was wonderful...Althought the Eggs Benedict was not what we thought. Ah well...Everything else was wonderful. We'll be back...Great service. The staff was there for our every whim...Thanks. You have made new friends.

I am not vegan but I thoroughly enjoyed "the radical Reuben"! The selection was huge, the portions were generous and the price was right. We purchased the cookbook to enjoy the food at home. We will definitely return.

I am a food lover. I love veggie, kosher, meaty and soulful delights. Chicago diner is a favorite. We spend plenty of time in the land of POP and best hot dog relish, my hometown.

This is one of the pillars of vegetarian life in Chicago. Great and creative food and dishes. Very nice staff. Sometime it gets a little too crowded, and definitely going to have a line/wait at popular eating days/times

Just reading the menu here is fun! There aren't many places where a vegetarian can order anything on the menu-- no reading the small print or asking "is that vegetable soup made with chicken broth?" The food is always well conceived and tasty. The down side is that the place is small and not very comfortable unless you are lucky... More

Every time I'm in Chicago, I pay a visit to the Chicago Diner, sometimes 2 or 3 visits if I'm in the city for several days or more. I am not vegan or vegetarian, but one of my two teenage children is, and this restaurant is a gem my family of four enjoy! Every brunch, lunch, dinner & dessert I've... More

I make sure to visit this place every time I'm in Chicago. The food is fantastic, and even the drinks are delicious. In nice weather, the back patio is a perfect place for a meal with friends. Looking forward to eating here next time I visit the city!

Been going here for years. I'm not a vegan but it doesn't matter. It's just really good food with great service at a decent price. Highly recommended.
