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

I'm not a vegetarian, and have often been disappointed by vegetarian restaurants. Not this one; it was quite excellent. As well as food of the highest quality, both in materials and in their preparation, the imagination that had gone into devising dishes was top notch. And the service matched the food ... it was exceptional. Well done everyone.

We make a point to eat at the Green Zebra every time we visit Chicago. Friends and family who join us are always amazed by the food, it's an explosion of flavor. I am not vegetarian but can say it's one of my absolute favorite restaurants. Can't recommend it enough, but make reservations, it's always busy!

I dined at the Green Zebra and not just had a beautiful vegetarian tasting menu with wine pairing, but also learned more about the lovely wines and the thought behind the pairings from Elizabeth, the General Manager. Elizabeth was a delight to speak with, so knowledgeable about wines, and an authentic person who is passionate about her work. As I... More

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
