Creative vegetarian options. More successful dishes are those with strong ethnic flavors, such as the Mexican menu items. I also like the breakfast offerings, a large variety of egg dishes.

Blind Faith has always been one of my favorite restaurants, and it only gets better. It is crowded but quiet enough to carry on conversation , the staff is very helpful and friendly and the food is absolutely wonderful. I am not a vegetarian, but their food is so good I would eat there very night if that were reasonable.

We were celebrating my daughter’s 15th birthday. My daughter is vegan and loved all of the vegan options on the menu. She ordered the seitan with sweet potatoes and loved it. She also loved the vegan chocolate cake. I ordered the pot pie. It was flavorful but was not heated all the way through. All and all we loved our experience at the Blind Faith Cafe!

My daughters are vegan, so this is one of their favorite places. As a true omnivore, I find this place to be exceptional for being a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. Everything I have tried has been delicious and satisfying. The only thing I could nit-pic about is that they should stock some spicier, as in hotter, sauces for those dishes that I would rather have hot, such as some of the Chinese style dishes.

Had a great dinner here Saturday. Watch the cocktail menu as many drinks have sugar added and this is not mentioned on the menu. Our waiter was fine with replacing the sweet drink. We spend over 2 hours there taking and eating and never felt rushed.

We went here on a rare date night. I've been wanting to go here for several years but have only been plant based for the last year. I didn't think my wife would go for it, but she did. We looked at the menu and pictures on line and it looked pretty good. The looks were deceiving though. The food (and service) were more than pretty good. They were amazing! Our server gladly went through the menu with us to make recommendations.

We started with Brussel Sprouts and the Dolmas. My wife had the Thai Peanut noodles (just the right amount of heat) and I had a Black bean and Tofu dish on the special menu. I ordered a side of kale which was perfectly steamed.

For desert we split flourless chocolate cake and a fruit crumble. We also sampled the Vegan chocolate cake in a cupcake form. The cakes were very good but the crumble needed more fruit and less crumble, my only fault with our visit. We topped it off with Chai Latte with was also great.

If I had one major complaint with this restaurant it is that I really wanted to try everything on the menu and I couldn't! I guess we will have to go back to try something different.

We spoke to the manager on the way out. He was very interested in how we liked the restaurant, a nice touch.

An old stand-by in Evanston. My wife and daughter are vegetarians, but I am not, and I still love eating at Blind Faith. Food is consistently delicious. Solid beer and wine options, and the vegan chocolate cake is to die for.

When I asked the waitress what kind of tea they served she asked me what kind I like. She obviously did not want to tell me, because she rolled her eyes and said, “black, green, and herbal.” I asked her again to tell me what kinds they had, and then she grudgingly listed them. Throughout the rest of the meal she ignored me and only spoke to my husband.

This was my first time visiting and I must say, I was very impressed with the menu selection and portion size. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was great! Outside of the lack of parking and waiter telling me that they were out of cauliflower wings (right before I overheard him taking orders for them from other tables), is definitely visit again.

We were in the Evanston area and did a search for a vegetarian/vegan restaurant for dinner. We are so glad we stumbled across the Blind Faith Cafe! We had the Kamoosh and Brussels Sprouts for starters. Both were delicious! The Kamoosh were basically nachos but they were probably some of the best nachos I've had in a long time! My husband had the Shiitake Walnut Loaf which as ok and I ordered the Thai Peanut Noodles which were delicious! We also got the vegan chocolate cake and vegan peanut butter chocolate cake to-go for dessert. Both were good but the peanut butter option was better, especially the next day as it was still moist.

We came back for a second time later in the week and ordered the Thai Peanut Noodles again (they were that good!) and Yellow Coconut Curry.

All in all, the food and the service were both great! This is definitely our new favorite vegetarian/vegan spot!

Good option for those looking for vegan comfort foods. Overall, the food was okay. My greek omlette was good/simple/guiltless, my friend's bibimbop was "a little too salty." Ambience was nice, really cozy. Minus a grouchy female hostess/food runner who threw our dumplings onto the table, the service was outstanding. I will likely visit again.

We went to celebrate a birthday. Would go there again. Great vegan experience. The kids meal was spicy for a young child, but it was replaced and it was great food. Even if you don’t like vegan food I’m pretty sure you’d enjoy what I had (a “chicken” pot pie).
