I love Blind Faith. I have been going there ever since they opened many years ago as a cafeteria style restaurant in another Evanston location. Food has always been consistently good, wholesome, creative & vegetarian.

I am a regular at Blind Faith Café, which probably affects how great the service is (since they know me). However, I witness how great the servers are to other diners, as well. The food is great and the portions are big enough to provide another meal, via leftovers.

I've been going to Blind Faith since it was a cafeteria down the street. It is my favorite restaurant. It has evolved into a special occasion place as it is more upscale and expensive now. The food is tremendous. The Valentines Day prefix meal was outstanding from the first to the last bite. The service was excellent as was the ambiance. Even the music was fantastic. It's a great place for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Love Blind Faith!!

Blind Faith is absolutely one of our favorites. This was a birthday celebration. The food was outstanding, as always. We both had the Shiitake-Walnut Loaf with butternut puree, and the Berry Cobbler and Belgian Chocolate Pudding for dessert. Yummmm! The service is always attentive; this time it was exceptional because they knew we were celebrating a birthday. And prices can't be beat, especially given the quality of this food. Thank you, Blind Faith, for another wonderful meal!

We a\enjoyed a wonderful dinner last Saturday night at the Blind Faith Cafe. Jonathan was our server and he was terrific. His recommendations were spot on and he figured out right away that it was going to take us awhile to decide on our menu selections. We don't eat out very often and he respected the fact that we wanted to take our time to enjoy each course. The brussel sprouts and the French fries that we order as appetizers were great. I enjoyed my beet salad and my husband enjoyed his entree.
Thanks for a great evenbng

Food was very yummy! Atmosphere was chill. Right across the street from Space music venue. Our server was just slow and we felt like she kept forgetting about us. She was very nice just absent. We were going to order dessert but didn't have time. Super disappointed about that because being gluten free and vegan most restaurants don't have to many options for me. Blind Faith Cafe certainly did we just couldn't wait any longer. I will definitely eat here again next time I catch a show at Space.

Went here for the first time this past Saturday, the entire experience was fantastic. The service was great, our waitress suggested the Thai peanut noodles and the Mongolian stir fry, both were so so good. I wish we had been a bit hungrier so we could of tried some appetizers. We had fantastic lattes as well and brought home a piece of carrot cake which was incredible. We don’t live in Evanston but we can’t wait to come back!

Happy Birthday to me 🎂!!!!
Blind Faith has been on my bucket list for a long time. We had 3 people in our party, we were celebrating my 46th birthday. I picked the perfect spot, my friends absolutely love it as well. It was our 1st time there and definitely not our last. My friends have never tried Seitan and they were blown away tha is wasn’t meat, excellent!!! Highly recommend everything, seriously though the flavors in every dish we tried were mind blowing. Service was excellent!!! Thank you so much for exceeding! Love KarmaGirl ♥️

Blind Faith Café is a consistently wonderful experience. We had the Moroccan stirfry and the fajitas. The ingredients were fresh and delicious! The atmosphere is warm and charming. The waitstaff are friendly and very attentive. They have a delicious bakery connected to the restaurant and had to bring some goodies home after dinner. I would highly recommend Blind Faith Café to anyone seeking a delicious vegetarian experience.

Overall great place. The service was slow (over 2 hours for a lunch due to long wait for food, dessert & check), however, and my dessert which was supposed to be warm was cold. Service may have been off because it was a holiday and understaffed. Food overall was great and we will give it another try hoping for better service next time.

I'm sorry BF, you've really gone down hill. Food wasn't that fresh, over salted and really boring. You used to be fantastic and now, seems like you've settled into the place that's "been around for years," and doesn't need to try anymore.
