Green Zebra's been open in this location for nigh on 14 years. It started as mostly veggie with some fish dishes. Currently it is 100% vegetarian with the option to make most dishes fully vegan and/or gluten free. This said, the best things we ate included dairy as we are not vegan, so I cannot rate from a dairy-free perspective.... More

Loved the food, service and ambiance. Had the corn soup with hominy and shiitake, delish. Ricotta stuffed squash blossoms were good. Really enjoyed the cashew masala with arugula. Corn cakes were very good too, they were topped with dressed greens and wax beans, so good. Finished with a nectarines dessert, loved the coconut cream and rye cake with it. Service... More

This place is fantastic for vegetarian and meat-eaters alike, foodies and non-foodies. The food is wonderful and rich and all of the meat-eaters I was with explicitly said that they didn't even notice there wasn't meat. The meal itself was decadent, rich, filling, vivacious, surprising... the list could go on. The recipe is fairly limited, but the ingredient variation was... More

The food was incredible. I am a vegan and enjoyed all the vegan and vegetarian options. We ordered the spring rolls, greens with lemon curd and the heirloom tomato cashew dish. The lemon curd was wonderful. The warm cashew dish was also very flavorful.

Everything on the menu was so satisfying! I truly thought I would miss having a meat/protein as part of my dinner, but I was wrong! The dishes are small plates so ordering a few is a good idea, and it is also an excellent way to try different ones as well. The mushroom pate is AMAZING!! A must when at... More

The wine list is expansive and offers a delicious vegetarian menu. The Severson Farm Buckwheat Pasta is to die for!

A return visit to see what the kitchen was doing with spring vegetables. There was a 4-course tasting menu featuring peas in each course (sweet pea sorbet with carrot cake!) but we passed it up in favor of dishes from the main menu. The menu consists of small plates; all were vegetarian on this visit and many can be adjusted... More
