Very good food, the cheese tastes like a dairy product but isn't. Recommend the fig flatbread and the red curry. The Cheesecake and the apple pie are fantastic, the brownie is has a good flavor, but the texture is really sticky.
Spirit Elephant has a wonderful plant based menu, great patio, chill vibe & great staff! It is an hour drive for us and we will be back! I would recommend it to anyone & everyone!
If you are looking for a delicious vegan meal, look no further. Every dish is a culinary delicacy, and a feast for the eyes. The ingredients are organic, locally sourced and most dishes are gluten-free. The place is beautiful; an oasis of peace and health. I recommend you make a reservation as this "earth-friendly" house is becomming very popular.
The food here was amazing! We ordered everything to share - cauli wings, brussel sprouts, lettuce wraps and the fig flatbread. We also shared the raspberry cheesecake which was delicious. Our wait staff was not very attentive but I don’t know if she had tables inside and that was why she disappeared for such long periods of time. Regardless we will definitely return because everything else was great!
Far above already high expectations. Nothing on the menu is left untouched by some clever manipulation, transforming naturally mundane, good and better into creative, beautiful, rich, and fulfilling. Room, which we passed thru to rthe welcoming patio, feels like it’s been there for many years. Menu is difficult, as in so many inviting choices, all described in detail. Tempted to say there are no suprises, in terms of ingredients, but the plate surprised in terms of visual delivery.
One of us is vegetarian, and was delighted. Anothh of us is a foodie(the writer). The third of us(the writers wife) is not a food adventurer, enjoyed every morsel, more or less.
Good food, fun exploring, ok service. Nice cocktails, wines. Moderately expensive, but easily justified. Even the desserts sounded appealing. The evidence of professional food service is abundant.
Wonderful food and service 👏❤️👏
The service was slow as the restaurant was crowded. My salad came with no dressing and the meal was over by the time I got the dressing. But the food was good and we will be back
Great atmosphere, wonderful food, love the back patio. I think they may have been short staffed as our waited was hard to find to order. But when he was with us, he was very nice.
Awesome food, great ambience and very prompt service.
The buffalo cauli wings & cinnamon rolls are *everything*
food is very good. We had the BBQ meatloaf - proclaimed by one of us as better than real meatloaf. the Fig bread was super; the humus very tasty with a nice assortment of veggies (the pita was a bit thick and over toasted - hard)
Lentil bolognese was a bit lacking in flavor.
They do remarkable things with plants that are delicious
the Triple Chocolate Cake was SUPERB.
One downside, the server kept repeatedly asking us if the food was amazing - almost seems like a psychology trick to get us to affirm this and thus alter our perceptions.
Mind control aside - this is a great place to eat. The patio is nice. service is generally prompt.
Best Vegan Restaurant in the Northwest Suburbs hands down!
The food was phenomenal as always. We had a late reservation and by the end I think our server was just very tired and very abruptly gave us to-go boxes (before we were done eating) and when she did clear our plates, she cleared our half-full drinks as well. I feel for the service industry and how they are understaffed, but I was a bit bummed by the end of our meal/service (and my unfinished cocktail!)
Food was delicious and fresh and presented beautifully
Everything was phenomenal. Great food. Outstanding service.
Best vegan food in the chicago area! You wouldn’t even know it was vegan. The best I’ve ever had, by leaps and bounds. Makes me want to move to Winnetka!
Who knew? Vegan in Winnetka? And tucked in the back of the restaurant is a lovely outdoor seating area. There were so many things to try but I settled for biscuits and gravy. The biscuits were housemade but a bit dry. The gravy was fair. My partner had a veggie scramble which was pretty good. I still want to go back for a couple of sandwiches and the cauliflower “wings.” Lots of choices and alcohol too. Just no meat or meat products. But who cares?!
the food was amazing
the bartender was great
Love having a vegan restaurant in town.
Spirit Elephant is amazing. I highly recommend to people considering a plant based lifestyle. It's a great introduction to a how simple plants can be manipulated into an amazing dish. It's always worth my hour drive from the northwest suburbs.
Great place good for a date or just for dinner. Food presentation was excellent service was excellent and it’s a great value. Being surrounded by plants gives off a great vibe. I would certainly recommend this place even if you’re not a vegetarian some of the dishes have the consistency the taste the carnivores will enjoy.
Great and creative vegetarian food. Will return to try new menu items.
Absolutely fantastic… my Denver family wants a Spirit Elephant near them!!!
Our server was excellent. I wish I could remember her name. I am not a Vegan of Vegetarian but it did not matter. The food was tasty and plentiful. The dining room was full but was still able to carry on a conversation with my family.
The food is pretty good, but the portion sizes are ridiculously small for the price. We are vegans and we like to eat. If you are super hungry, not the best place. If you like high prices and small portions, go here. The meatloaf came with 2 small carrot slices, 2 small asparagus stalks, and a baby scoop of mash potatos.....not exactly hearty eating.
Service was poor. We seated on the covered patio and we were the only ones due to the rain. We had to ask a few times to get glasses and silverware for the table. The servers did not come often and the food came almost 1 hr after! Then they rushed us the leave trying to get plates that were not finished and asking to take a table from our party to start preparing for dinner (it was 3.30pm). We were very exited to try the food but, although it tasted good, we got sick after getting at home. Not a great experience, which is very unfortunate as we were so excited to have a vegan restaurant near by! (Part of the family is vegan)
Food and service was fantastic.
The waitress was outstanding. She is service focused on all levels from greeting us, checking in on our dining experience and then some.
Great food for a guy who eats meat. Just wish the drink had alcohol in it. Waitress was great!
Great food and very clean restaurant
This is my second time coming to Spirit Elephant, as someone who doesn’t eat vegan food often I really loved it. The quality of the food and ambiance is unparalleled. The Beauregarde cocktail is at once whimsical and refreshing, the perfect accompaniment to a warm summer night. Cauliflower bites were crisp and flavorful. The impossible burger is virtually indistinguishable from a meat burger.
We focused on apps, dessert and drinks for our first visit. We were told by others this was the way to go. We loved the Cali Wings, the brussel sprouts, carrot cake and the peach martini! Every thing was delicios and really filling. We will be back to try more dishes.
Great service (Michelle) and delicious vegan cuisine. Taken to the next level but not fancy.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Our waitress was able to guide us through the menu and made great suggestions!
Always consistent and always great.
Great food, service and ambiance! Look forward to coming back!
Absolutely amazing!! Exceeded my expectations. The wings and desserts were incredible. Highly recommend for any carnivore, vegetarian or vegan.
Really cool restaurant with very quality plant based options, great bar setting and welcoming environment.
For vegans, vegetarians, plant based, flexaterians and everyone. The food is so delicious. Wonderful staff. The meatloaf (!) yes! Are you kidding? It’s so good. Really good cocktails, very innovative. This is a beautiful restaurant with delicious foods and you can bring you entire family and they will love it. I live in Lakeview, Chicago and we ride out to Spirit Elephant because it’s that good!
