We went there for our anniversary dinner and they had great service. Our server was very knowledgable about the food and attentive. The food was delicious. We would definitely go back again!!

This place is fantastic. Very smart, inventive food. Mostly vegetarian fare with some fish occasionally on the menu. Not your typical vegetarian options. The restaurant is small and can sometimes be loud but atmosphere is great.

The last time I was at Green Zebra, I gave it four stars. After my second visit, I realize that I scored them a little low. I had to go back in order to try a special morel menu that they were offering as well to try a few other dishes. In my mind the last time I went the only thing that stood out in my mind as being really good was the Mushroom Pate. I had it again and it was still great as I remembered. However, this time nearly every dish was memorable. I wanted to dive in and lick every plate. Let me be clear I'm an omnivore. I love meat. To deliver to me a vegetarian meal that I love is amazing. Even outside of the Morel specials which were delivered at an amazingly low price, the tamarind peanut sauce with the black bean dumplings were so complimentary and tasty to be ignored. After a second visit. I realized I underestimated for sure the first time. Now I can't wait to go back.

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.

To be honest, I was a little skeptical about coming here because I was starving and am not used to eating a dinner without some type of meat. I should not have worried, I left really stuffed and pretty happy. We were ecstatic about some of the dishes but underwhelmed by others. The ones we loved: mushroom pate (truly spectacular), chilled somen, cornbread (the cayenne butter was really great), and the Brussel & walnut salad. We were less enthused about the cauliflower flatbread, duck egg, and white corn polenta. Although I didn’t order any drinks, my two friends did and they loved their glasses of wine. We were pretty full at this point, but they brought out a list of interesting desserts. We ended up ordering the banana cake with goat milk ice cream and oreo. I am not normally a dessert person but this was amazing, I definitely wanted more! The wait staff was very nice and always kept my water filled.

Get the pumpkin soup while the fall menu is still here, it might read simply but I promise it's not something you'd make at home - you'll be surprised by the complexity of flavor and little bits of apple. Green Zebra is one of the best places I've ever eaten, it's a light and fun food adventure.

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.

I've been here a few times, and the items are usually hit or miss, which often happens at a tapas place. I don't mind eating vegetarian (have been leaning towards that anyway), and I really believe any dish ( meat or not ) is really just about the flavor. But often times, the flavors are just missing here. That being said, everything is fresh. Had no problems with the service either
