I can't say enough good things about Green Zebra. I've been dining here about once a year for nine, maybe 10 years, and the food remains inventive, consistently excellent in quality and flavor. The service is impeccable, down to the server calling a cab for us at the end of the meal. I am a vegan, but I'd come here... More

Neither my husband or I are vegetarians but have always wanted to try this restaurant for a healthy dinner out option. We were not disappointed. Perhaps a little pricey for vegetarian (hence only 4/5) but everything we had was quite tasty. The best dish by far is one of their specialties - the mushroom pate. Amazing! Will be going there...

My husband and I came to Green Zebra for our anniversary. We both ordered the 4-course tasting menu. The featured vegetable was tomatoes. Every dish was well-presented with a fantastic wine-pairing. The servers were very knowledgeable about the wine and food, which made the experience even better. The only course we didn't care for was the dessert. Even so, the... More

Dined here recently, what a great surprise. I had heard good things, but was taken away by the freshness, flavor, and deliciousness of the meal. Definitely suggest dining here - even if you aren't a vegetarian. The one minus to the meal - the restaurant is crazy loud - and it's small!

We've been a number of times and always find the food and presentation fun, casual, tasty, varied. Green Zebra solves our yearly anniversary dilemma of where to go for a great meal that's not too fussy and saves us from pre-selecting menu items from vegetarian "friendly" places (of which there are 1000s in Chicago). The menu changes often, contains not... More

We visited for the second time and brought our daughters. The food was just as good as the first time. The staff is courteous and attentive. The food selections are quite good. My husband is not a vegetarian, but he has enjoyed both visits. We love the small dishes. They are perfect to share and enable you to try multiple... More

Nearly everything we had at this vegetarian restaurant was fantastic. The menu is so good, with so many appealing choices, that no meat eater will miss the meat. The cocktails were good (love the grilled lemon syrup!), the polenta was amazing, the flatbread was great. I also loved the kale salad, and the burrata with grilled frisee (and I normally... More

My husband and I went here with another couple, and had a dinner that was so delicious, there was not even the slightest disgruntlement over the lack of meat! We chose the chef's tasting menu which was five courses. Since we had never been there, we thought that we would let the chef make it easy for us. Boy, did... More

We are frequent diners here and this time we came with a group of friends. It was a lovely, leisurely meal - never rushed, and everything was delicious. Service is attentive but not obtrusive, and the food is always fantastic. This is not a restaurant of fake "chicken, shrimp and burgers". This is a vegetarian place that knows how to... More

I'm veggie friendly, my friend is vegetarian. We split 6 dishes for dinner. It's a good menu - lots of options. The chickpea soup was great. We liked the salads, the lady's duck egg was very good.
