We recently went to the Green Zebra and just loved the food and service. Even if you are not a vegetarian or vegan, you will love coming to this restaurant

Wonderfully presented fully vegetarian food. Tasty, although portions are gourmet (elegant and small) for American standards. Expensive...for the more casual seating and service.

We had high hopes for the Green Zebra, but unfortunately I have to echo some of the comments of other reviewers. The only memorable dish was the Hen-of-the-Woods pâté, and that was mainly because Hen-of-the-Woods is one of my favorite mushrooms and is generally very hard to come by (last time I had it was many years ago at Tocqueville...

No black and white stripes here simply because there are no negative (black) comments to be made about this restaurant. I loved the food! The three small courses combination is what you need to taste the exquisite flavours of the dishes without stuffing your stomach - which leaves a bit of space for the delicious desserts too. The food presentation... More

Some of the best food I've had in Chicago. Servings are small for the price. But everything is made with quality ingredients so a few bites of each small plate is all it takes. Service was excellent. Only complaints - I think the wine is priced higher than need be. Also we ordered a dessert of gourmet cookies and a... More

Once you manage to find this restaurant, which is to say the external signage implies this the Green Zebra is a speakeasy, you're drawn in by the modern decor and warm lighting. The service was excellent and walked us through vegan options and helped select a nice wine. We started with the hummus plate and a western version of kimchi,... More

This is a destination that has been on my list for a long time. We are visiting from out of town and went there for birthday dinner. First the positives, great ambiance, and nice service. The menu read well. We are vegan so we worked around the menu with help from our server. We did like the somen noodles, dumplings,... More

This is a very good vegetarian restaurant. The service was very good. They have unique drinks & unique food items. The food quantity is small, so it is best to order several items & share them. The ambiance is nice & upscale here. I gave this a 4 instead of 5 as I did not enjoy the food as much... More
