The Green Zebra is one of those places - when you find it you'll return again and again, because the food, ambiance and service is just perfect. Tucked away approx. 15 mins by car east of downtown Chicago, this restaurant turns out positive surprises from the moment you walk into the door. The decor is modern and calming. Although there...

Green Zebra is an all vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The food is wonderful, the staff is attentive and their cocktails are heavenly. Great for a date or special occasion, it is a bit pricey.

My wife and I were excited to finally eat at Green Zebra, since we favor vegetarian cuisine, and made reservations for restaurant week. The ambience and atmosphere are pleasant. However the food is uninspiring. Appetizers were an interesting radish salad, which was actually quite good, and a vegetarian chili that tasted like something you could get out a can. For... More

Fresh, creative small plates. The mushroom pate did taste like i was eating 95% pure butter but all of the other options were very well prepared by the chef. We enjoyed the curry dish but the best was the salad. Try a little bit of everything but be prelared for the check.

My daughter and I went to the Green Zebra on Friday night. We were very pleased. We had a reservation for 7 and we were seated right away. The ambiance is really pleasant and upscale. Our waiter Kevin was terrific. Actually, I forgot my credit card and he ran it out across the street where we were waiting for the... More

I've been wanting to try this place for quite a while. My husband and I finally went for our anniversary, and it did not disappoint. The server was very helpful coming up with interesting combinations of the small plate dishes as well as wine pairings. I especially enjoyed the cashew masala. The flavors and textures of all the dishes we... More

I am neither vegan or vegetarian, but enjoy good food of all varieties. Vegan/vegetarian restaurants vary tremendously in their approach, and I avoid soy shaped into meat or seafood as a worthy food experience. Instead, take fresh vegetables, nuts, and fruit and create delicious dishes, and this is how the Green Zebra constructs their menu. Everything our group ate was... More

Unique flavor combinations and wide variety in styles make Green Zebra a delight. It's so great for me, a vegetarian, to be able to choose anything at all on the menu! And for the friends I dined with to be pleased as well. I particularly enjoyed the squash blossoms (likely seasonal on this menu), and sad there were only 2... More

While visiting Chicago we tried this vegetarian restaurant. They have a menu that is all vegetarian, and many dishes can be made vegan. It is a very quaint upscale, yet casual atmosphere. The service was outstanding. They were quite busy the night we went and the food came at a slow pace. But we were in no rush so no... More
