Stopped in here for a few drinks and snacks. The don't offer a lot but it was tasty. A little expensive, quite a bit expensive actually. The popcorn was really good. No lids or straws on the cups here-zoo rules.

The Painted Giraffe would be expensive for a large family, but it's a nice place to have a fresh salad, soup, wraps. The food isn't exotic, not wildly expensive, but it's less expensive to go to other Zoo venues. But this one has large windows overlooking the zoo, is in the building by the North parking lot, and wonderful to sit on the outside patio on a pretty day.

I've eaten there many times, usually after my volunteer shift. It was always a place to go and see a friendly face.

Exactly what you would expect from a zoo. Not gourmet but not bad either. Salads all seem to be fresh and the food is cooked at the site.

Your normal zoo place: pay $4 for a burger and $3 for a soda. Normal and average quality for where you are.

Went here with a large group recently and had a very good experience. The Pomodoro pasta was above average. The Del Pietro salad was also above average. The atmosphere and service were great, went on a Saturday night and it was busy but the service was speedy.

Even though it was in the Loop parking was not a problem, there is a reserved attended (free) lot next to the restaurant. It was full when we got there but we found a spot on the street in front.
