    ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE (AND THIS IS COMING FROM OMNIVORES) It’s hard to create a vegan dish that really knocks your socks off, but Green Zebra does it right. Our server Alex was great. We ordered the smoked pate with the chips, the beet risotto, the fish tacos, and the lentil dish. Everything was excellent. This place is special

    Kinda short on hot dishes and not great presentation. Good for the Vegan who wants a cold but interesting dish for dinner. Probably would work great for lunch but a tad pricey for that.

    If you are looking for a fresh twist on fresh ingredients, the Green Zebra is the place for you. Starters to dessert were delicious. We ate on the street - which is fine fore people watching, but was a little loud. Nevertheless, it was the best meal of our week in Sarasota.

    For a few months now, my wife and I have come to the green zebra for dinner. The food is consistently great and inspiring. The chefs bring an attention to detail and intention to their cooking that is hard to match in Sarasota and elsewhere. We always order the fish tacos and the roasted carrot dish. OMG, both are amazing!! My wife is a great cook, so we love going to restaurants where the experience is better anything we can make at home. The food at the green zebra is simple in ingredients yet complex in its creation. Incredibly thoughtful, delicious offerings that are unlike anything else one might find.

    This was the best meal we've had in ages. We went with our kids for breakfast and everything was beyond exceptional. The friendly server told us that they are serving dinner at night also. We decided to go with friends the next day, and let me tell you - Green Zebra surpassed all expectations. The Charcuterie Board was a piece of art, the Castelvetrano Olives and Shishitos were superb. I am a true meat eater and I ordered the Short Rib for the main course: one of the best I've had in my life. My wife and friends (all meat eaters) decided to order vegetable based dishes. Everyone was blown away by the taste and the presentation. We licked our plates. I had a bite from my wife's meal and I was shocked: it was so good. I could eat vegetables every day if prepared this way. And the desserts were out of this world. How can you even make a dessert without eggs and cream to taste better than any dessert I've ever had. Incredible! We are going to Green Zebra this week again for breakfast and dinner. Check it out.

    What a gem. Our server did a great job explaining the menu. We were highly impressed by the food and the presentation. We started with Fish Tacos and Charcuterie Board. Both delicious. We had the Roasted Carrot, Braised Short Ribs and Grilled Barramundi. All were outstanding, we finished the plates. Could have licked them all. The desserts were incredible also. Can't wait to go back.

    Vegan oriented restaurant, although you can add some animal protein. Portion are large and savory. Menu is small, reason for which I don’t see it as full as other restaurants in the street.. service is excellent ! Try the olives as appetizer and the Mexican “ meat” salad. Any other salad is good.

    I made a reservation for 6:15 pm, not realizing they were only open for lunch and breakfast. We followed directions to get there and it was closed! The lol should have said CLOSED! We were in a hurry to get to the Opera . ☹️

    Green zebra cafeResponded on February 15, 2020Hello Lynn! I am so sorry about that! We were open from 5:30pm-9pm for Valentine's day. Currently, our hours are 7:30am-2pm for brunch and 5:30pm-9pm for dinner. Soon we will change the dinner hours to 3pm-9pm! Again, I apologize for any confusion there may have been!
