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

I make a point of trying farm to table restaurants in every city I visit. As a vegetarian of more than twenty years, I have been to many spectacular places around the world that are either exclusively veggie or are vegetable forward. I always hope for the kind of experience that leaves you wanting to come back again and again... More

We visit Chicago often and this is one of our favorite restaurants. I'm not vegetarian but nevertheless live the food here. Tonight was the best meal we've ever had at Green Zebra. Started with the hen of the woods mushroom pate. Rich and savory. Not to be missed. Next the pillowy gnocchi with mushrooms and risotto. My husband is from... More

This. is. my. favorite. restaurant. I do not know how to adequately express how much I love this restaurant. As a usually vegetarian, occasionally vegan, and sometimes omnivore, I can attest to this being some of the best food I have ever had. Their vegan menu is outstanding. Their vegetarian dishes are sublime. Superlatives upon superlatives. I want whatever deal... More

Mrs Willie & I shared 7 dishes, 3 were the morel tasting menu which I ordered, along with the wine pairings. Dishes for the most part were terrific & full of flavor. I'm sure this is a very tired response but being omnivores, Mrs Willie & I did not miss meat having a starring role. (* designates tasting menu item)... More

Came here for dinner tonight and truly enjoyed this unique place and its very interesting vegetarian menu. We started out with the Hen in the Woods Mushroom Pate, which was good but I did not detect a huge amount of mushroom flavor. Then we had the artisan Grits with a poached egg and it was really good, especially the red... More
