Such a high quality spot. The food is phenomenal. This place has withstood the test of time and when you eat there you understand why. I had the shiitake walnut loaf, so good. And I had a piece of the vegan peanut butter chocolate cake with raspberry sorbet.. omg

Love this place! Very tasty vegan and vegetarian dishes. Earth friendly restaurant and reasonably priced. Best chocolate cupcakes in the area! Don’t get to go very often, so it’s a treat when we do. 😊

I am not and never will be a vegetarian and neither were my 2 friends. However this place is amazing and I would definitely go back From the minute we walked in the door everything was perfect. The host greeted us and explained that our table had their check. There were a lot of people waiting but he kept checking in and updating everyone. Our waiter greeted us immediately and happily answered all our questions. The food itself was terrific - one had a curry - the other a poke and I had a fabulous enchilada! We were not rushed and the deserts were also delicious. Blind Faith was a surprising discovery - don't miss it!!!

An oasis of calm, Blind Faith combines white-tablecloth class with charm. Your server may sport piercings or tattoos, but he or she will dote upon you with genuine concern for your dining experience. One a rough-hewn hippie hang, the Blind Faith has evolved into a casually elegant exemplar of how meatless cuisine can be all things to all people--from macro plates to a hearty BBQ seitan on a bun. Take your date or your Mom for an intimate chat in one of the booths, or a gaggle of friends for a popup party at a big table (complete with organic beer and wine).

Blind Faith is a terrific venue for Sunday Brunch-the selections are great and wide in range-great bloody marys and wine. Very nice wait staff-I love it.

Excellent vegetarian - so many options you don't miss meat. Dessert particularly good. (carrot cake). One server seemed to be responsible for everything, which slowed things down, even though there was another guy in another room who was wandering back and forth with nothing to do.

We had a bit larger group that went for a special occasion. Had a great time. Food was excellent. Service was quite good. We were seated a bit away from the main dining room, so it was a bit quieter and easier for us to hear our table chatter. All in all, a delightful evening!

Delicious food and great service. I really like the orange mohito and the guacamole is the best I've had - not too spicy, just perfect. Lots of good, healthy entree choices and delicious desserts as well.

We had a lovely family brunch at Blind Faith. There were so many menu options which made it easy for everyone in our party of 9 to find something and the food was delicious. The service was wonderful.

This is a fine dining veggie establishment that truly satisfies. If you are looking to have a vegetarian meal that is not the same old sandwich or salad, this is the place to go. Blind Faith has mastered a variety of cuisines, Asian, Latino, Italian, etc., and produced delicious veggie entrees, some vegan, in each. And don't miss their murderous bakery!

This is my 4th time at Blind Faith - I brought my husband and two adult children this time. I was a little disappointed that our food wasn't as spectacular as my other visits (I was eager to share this neighborhood gem with my family). My husband enjoyed his vegetable lasagna, but the bibimbop, thai peanut noodles and teriyaki rice bowl were a little "eh." that day. But I will definitely return as I know we all can't be perfect 100% of the time! :)

I went to this place all the way to Evanston, based on Trip Advisor's high ratings. I was excited and wanted to like this place. I also wanted my friend to love this place, for our special outing. However, we found the ratings given to this place to be over-rated. I love vegan and plant based foods, and we are proponents of healthy eating, but we felt everything in general was unfortunately "so-so."

Great vegitarian food, extremely generous portions, reasonably priced. Since it is a top notch bakery too so they serve fantastic desserts too. I've been here for breakfast and lunch before. Blind Faith Cafe has always been impressive and exceeds expectations with daily and seasonal specials

Has become a family favorite. We go for birthday meals/family get togethers. Food and the service are always consistently excellent. Large portions, fresh ingredients. There were 8 of us on our most recent visit, 3 vegetarians and some with food sensitivities. Everyone found something tasty to eat. We spent a couple of hours there and did not feel rushed to leave. My favorite is the Enchiladas Verde, it is delish.
