A lovely fine-dining vegetarian/vegan restaurant, just as welcoming and cozy as it was since it opened years ago (I'm especially drawn to eating here during wintry weather for some reason!) While the food and drink menus change frequently, there is consistency in the sense of appetizing presentations, quality seasonal ingredients, and expert preparation of vegetables. In fact, the chefs are such masters with certain ingredients, that some dishes could pass for the real thing (I'm looking at you, mushroom "pate"!) Whether you stop in for a full-on dinner or just coffee and dessert, definitely save room for the latter.

This is a very good vegetarian restaurant. The service was very good. They have unique drinks & unique food items. The food quantity is small, so it is best to order several items & share them. The ambiance is nice & upscale here. I gave this a 4 instead of 5 as I did not enjoy the food as much as some other vegetarian restaurants such as Millenium in San Francisco or Hiltl in Zurich. Having said that, the food is still very good & the experience is good, & I do recommend coming here, whether you are vegetarian or not.

Probably my favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Chicago. Their menu changes up and offers unique food and drink. Things are a little slow until around 8 and then everyone rushes in to the place. As for reccommendations I would say the mushroom pate without hesitation. Hats off to the chefs that prepare whatever magic goes into that. I ended up doing the 5 course chef's taste meal last time I was here and each dish was full of flavor. You really can't go wrong here with whatever you decide to get.

The bartender on saturday's, Carla, was super awesome and helpful with picking out food. She is vegetarian, and knew a lot about how the chef's prepared the dishes. And she makes great cocktails! If you get stuck at the bar, you wont be disappointed. I would definitely recommend the Acorn Squash Dumplings while they are in season. They taste great.

Even as a non-vegetarian, I enjoyed the menu variety and unique flavors. I loved the family style, small plates concept for vegetarian food. Personal favorite dishes were the burrata, polenta, and beaver dam pepper hash. Some of the dishes were disappointing. Chickpea salad and acorn squash dumplings were sort of bland.

Green Zebra; the UN-compassionate choice. When I first moved to Chicago in 2006 I was excited to learn about the Green Zebra and ate there several times. I now regret ever putting my money into the owner's coffers. Then the Foie Gras Ban came into effect. I was excited about the progressive city that I had chosen. Then the Foie Gras Ban was repealed through some underhanded tricks by Ald Tom Tunney and then Mayor Daley, (as documented in the book Foie Gras Wars by Marc Caro) and the first Chicago restaurant to put the cruel diseased goose liver paste back on the menu? You guessed it. The Green Zebra owner's 2nd restaurant located on Congress Ave in the Loop called Custom House. I had the opportunity to speak with Sue while protesting outside the Custom House and she has absolutely zero empathy for sentient life. Sue and Peter Drohomyrecky have no concern about you eating healthy or compassionately. They are in it for the foodie trends and the money that comes with it. So if you eat consciously in Chicago; skip the Green Zebra and go for one of the many vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the city where the owners 'get' why you try to eat healthy; for yourself, the planet, humanity and to reduce suffering.
