Typical healthy vegetarian food. Had to request more dressing for the Caesar salad,was bland and dry. Water wasn't served with ice.

I"m not vegan but also fond of veggies, etc. I've not been here for years and it seems that the menu is more sophisticated than 20 years ago. I enjoyed they Warm Onion Gruyere Tart (starter but I added to it to fill out my meal) and regretted not ordering two. The size was ample for a starter but it... More

We have had countless meals at Blind Faith in the 9 years that our 2 sons attended Northwestern University. We usually went for breakfast/lunch but have also had dinner here. Bright, airy establishment, with parking nearby, metered on street by restaurant, but free parking on side streets. Right on Dempster, by other shops and other places of interest. First, it... More

We arrived pretty early for dinner at the Blind Faith Cafe on a Tuesday night. It filled up quickly. Service was great. I had the Yellow Curry, and my husband had a Thai noodle dish. Both entrees were really large, so my advice would be to choose appetizers and split an entree. This place is also a quite superior bakery.... More

I ate at the Blind Faith Cafe years ago, and just returned for the first time in years. It was as delicious as I remembered! The service was good, and the food was excellent. The servings are huge. The yellow coconut curry could have easily fed two people, but we were happy to have leftovers for the next day! The... More

I have been to Blind Faith well over a hundred times. If it's been awhile, I crave the Blind Faith salad. I think it's one of the best salads I've ever had. I just brought my son for his first time. He wasn't expecting to like a vegetarian restaurant so much and wants to go back again some day.

This is a relatives favorite place, so we always go. Food quality has gone down. So we probably won't be going back.

Very nice, light and open restaurant that will upset the carnivores in your group, as well as those who feel all good food means it is fried. A great place to take yourself and friends when you want to eat well but also want to avoid unnecessary calories and fat. You can eat well with nice sized portions, get full... More

My wife and I are not strictly vegetarian, but Blind Faith serves a very nice meal. I try to limit my gluten intake, for sensitivity and I am always pleased how many choices I have (with a little cheating). We went out on a very hot Father's day, with no reservation. Luckily we got promptly seated and immediately ordered a... More

This is just a great experience every time. The people are all so friendly and helpful. And the food is nothing short of delicious. Choose anything on the menu (and we've had most of the offerings) and you'll be satisfied. I think the price is a bit high but it is justified by large serving sizes that are big enough... More
