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

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
