Pros: Amazing food, quick service

I think Green Zebra really has something. It is a tasteful, yet quaint restaurant with excellent vegetarian dishes. Seeing all of the different types of tomatoes they use (including the Green Zebra) is fascinating. The dishes are colorful and interesting.

It's an unusual but fun place. You really have to look to the crowd to see who you are taking here because well..it's a vegetarian, vegan restaurant! I LOVED it,simply because I don't feel there are enough of these around and though it is a little upscale and pricy, it was a great experience

I was in Chicago to see some music, but I was sick as a dog, barely able to taste anything and hopped up on day-quil. Still, Green Zebra tasted wonderful, and left me and my meat-eating buddy, completely satisfied.

I had the 5-course tasting menu for just $55. Serious!

The dishes were classic in style: greens, consomme, risotto, crepes, and dessert. Simple, done well.

I will definitely eat here every time I am in Chicago. One of the country's best vegetarian restaurants.

Green Zebra isn't the kind of restaurant I'd choose to frequent very often, or perhaps even again. However, the food was quite good, if a bit precious, had interesting bursts of flavors, & was beautifully & artistically presented.

The focus is vegetarian although there was one salmon dish on the menu, and the servings are tapas sized. We ordered three each & by the end of the meal were full, something I didn't expect. I can't begin to list our choices but will note combinations such as caramel/thyme ice cream & roasted shiitake mushroom gnocchi with caraway dusted brussels sprouts. There were other ingredients in that gnocchi dish & the flavors were coming at me right & left.

The average price dish is about $13, yet it begins to add up when you're sampling this, sampling that. There's an interesting wine list too and an even more interesting non-alcoholic list (house made root beer).

I ate from Green Zebra's fourth anniversary prix-fixe menu, and it was like a far more pleasant version of Alinea (where the 24-course tour nearly destroyed my digestive system). The food was fresh, inventive and inspired--if you're under the impression that vegetarian cuisine is just a bland, over-spiced mess this restaurant will be a true conversion experience. Even on Sunday night it was packed, so I'd recommend making a reservation well in advance. Service was friendly and attentive.

Green Zebra serves small portions. It reminds me of a dim sum way of ordering except that the prices are much higher. The food is truly delicious and is to be savored. The small size of the portions encourages slow eating and by the end of your meal you'll feel full.

The restaurant is popular and reservations are required.

I'd prefer the fish and poultry dishes be eliminated from the menu.

Green Zebra is truly a delight. It is an upscale restaurant and reservations must be made far in advance, so a dinner out here is not a flighty occasion. It specializes in vegetarian food, but you will find no hippies here. There are a couple of fish/poultry dishes, but the dishes are so delectable that even the most hearty meat-eaters will not mind. The space is small and contemporary, and the service is excellent. The desserts are fabulous, especially the cream puffs. The menu changes seasonally, insuring the freshest ingredients.

Editorial from

This (mostly) vegetarian restaurant is under the deft hand of chef Shawn McClain. Years after its opening, foodies---including the carnivorous sort---continue to storm this place for dishes like creamy burrata with Concord grape gastrique,…
