My wife and I had a reservation and were promptly sat in a very comfortable booth table for two that gave us a great view of the comings and goings in the restaurant. It is a busy spot on a Saturday night with many finely dressed people enjoying conversation, drinks and what turns out to be excellent food. Our waitress... More

While a bit on the pricey side, the food at Green Zebra was delicious. The tapas style plates allow for just the right amount of food, and the atmosphere is unique and edgy but not pretentious. The spacing of the tables could have been a bit more comfortable, but the food and service were good enough to compensate for this.... More

We were in Chicago for a weekend and had resigned ourselves to boring food or bringing our own with us. We were so happy to read the reviews of the Green Zebra. Every rave review is deserved; the food is delicious. The wait staff was very helpful in making vegan suggestions. Most vegetarians and vegans will be well satisfied with... More

I'm not vegetarian and I admit I made jokes beforehand about planning for fried chicken a couple hours after dinner here, but I shouldn't have worried. I couldn't finish all my food, even though I wanted to. The food was flavorful and creative without falling into the "health food" stereotype or the use of shady fake meat products. We probably...

I have vegetarian and vegan friends that visit Chicago - and every time, I recommend this restaurant. Not once have I been disappointed: the experience has always been outstanding. The place is relatively small (reservations recommended), and it carries the feel of an intimate setting, so you will see a number of dates; service is flawless and the food is... More

My husband and I are from Mississippi. We are both vegetarian and travel frequently. On our travels we have eaten at many fine dining vegetarian restaurants...Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver B.C., Denver, Helsinki, and others. We both agreed that Green Zebra tops this list so far! Nicely decorated, friendly service, many menu choices, and most important - it was DELICIOUS!

I cannot disagree with many of the previous reviewers that the dishes and dining experience here are interesting and well-presented. My lower rating reflects the value: The portion sizes are too small for what they charge (our meal for 2 was $100 with tip, without alcohol), and they're not all that filling. I went there hungry, and felt fine after... More

We were celebrating a family birthday and this place was perfect - we knew it would be expensive so we're not shocked when the bill arrived! Tast food and the wine pairings on the tastings menu was perfect

This restaurant was commended to us by our daughter, and we were not disappointed! We were greeted warmly and shown to our table in this fairly small restaurant. Our waitress was very helpful in recommending how many small plates to order and which ones were specialties. The mushroom pâté is incredible. The chick pea chili was delicious. Ditto the black...
