I have to say this is such a wonderful "not so hidden anymore" little gem. Every time I stop in I get incredibly valuable advise regarding my health, whether it's vitamins, cold supplements, body or m...uscular health etc. I highly recommend to try it out and get a smoothie with expresso ♥ See More

I was in today, visiting from out of town, and had the most delicious meal. I had the raw kelp noodle pad Thai and a tiramisu cake. It was delicious and filling! I ate at 230pm, went bouldering after,... and am still full now at 10:15pm!!! The guy who served me was so helpful & nice as well!! Thank you!!!!!!! A++++++ See More

I had the sampler because I couldn't decide and everything looked so good. And it was! The little pot stickers with cashew cheeze filling were the best, well also the meetballs and also the brownie. O...kay, everything actually See More

My daughter and I ate at your location in The French Market yesterday. We couldn't have been more pleased with your employee, food and the entertainment provided by the female musician. We got to samp...le 3 desserts and they were very delicious! We ordered the Collard Wraps with the most delicious sour cream ever and bread sticks! (The sour cream was better than any non-vegan sour cream and other vegan sour cream that I've had in the past! We bought a container to take back home, too!) My daughter ordered a yummy Spirulina Grapefruit and we got two desserts- A Slice of Heaven & Tiramisu. You should definitely think about adding a location to the suburbs! I think near Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg would be a great place for us to visit often. :-) (Just sayin') :-) See More

I visited Raw on W Huron and loved the food! Everything was vegan, so I could, and wanted, to eat everything. Chili croquettes with couscous, a cranberry muffin and a Spirulina Grapefruit shake were w...hat I decided on. I brought my husband the Sampler Plate and both of us were impressed with how filling and refreshing all the food was. It had such flavor and the dehydrated options did not have all their liquid dried out to a crisp, but instead had a pleasant texture and fullness of flavor. What a pick-me-up after a busy day! We've decided that Raw is now our go-to place when we go back to Chicago! See More

Was delighted to find a RAW food restaurant in Chicago. I went to the one in the French Market. Their selections were overwhelming and everything looked delicious and inviting. I bought a couple of... desserts - there to quench my sweet tooth! They were amazing! Even non-vegan/raw/vegetarians loved them! See More

I have been coming here religiously since I moved to Chicago from California. It is the best place in the city truly healthy food- not healthy "ish" which seems to be the trend. I am addicted to the A...cai bowl which has the highest quality ingredients and no fillers. The coconut water is FRESH and the kale salad is amazing. The granola, nori rolls, and kelp noodles also rock. All the smoothies are perfect- you cannot go wrong if you truly value superfoods and high quality ingredients. Everything is organic and non GMO and raw and GF and vegan - ticks all the boxes! Almond milk lates are best in the neighborhood. Staff is sweet and kind and helpful and I often times come in for a coffee and an acai bowl and just hang and chat. This place saved this vegan in chicago! LOVE RAW! The food and the people are hands down the best in the midwest. See More

Everything I've tasted so far is amazingly delicious! The chef has got this raw thing figured out to pure perfection! The food is flavorful and keeps me coming back for more!

I really loved the quality of ingredients and the ways the flavors complimented one another. I was disappointed that almost all of the meals and goodies I got gave me a gluten reaction even though the... items I purchased were on the "gluten free list". Not sure about cross contamination procedures and precautions, although I recommend using caution when visiting this establishment if you are Celiac. Other than that, I loved it. See More

Last night I walked into the store (unaware of the store hours) and was greeted by a very friendly cashier, I believe her name was Polly. When I told her it was my first time being there, she didn't h...esitate to brake everything down for me. She provided me with samples, walked with me around the store, explained the ingredients and the techniques used to prepare the food. Within 2 minutes of being there I was very comfortable with the new surroundings and didn't feel overwhelmed or rush to leave the store. I left the store with chili croquettes (which are very freakin delicious by the way)!! You definitely have to new regular! Btw I entered the store 30 minutes before they closed. See More

I have been coming here for over three years! The food is amazing. While I'm not vegan, I really enjoy vegan dishes especially of such high quality. I recently did the weekly takeaway and I think it's... a great deal if you're looking to detox, or jumpstart a vegan diet. The customer service is great - they make sure that you are satisfied with your purchases! :) See More

Seriously delicious raw & real food. I have not had one thing that I didn't like or at least grow to enjoy. From the juices to the prepared meals, everything is outstanding. The coconut water is the best I have ever had. The pleasant and knowledgable staff doesn't hurt either. See More

Working at an organic raw juice & smoothie bar I was super excited to try Raw when visiting town for a weekend! Both girls at front were super helpful, showing me all their juices and even recommened ...a dessert for me. First purchase was an Almond Milk mix with cinnamon- delish! And a protein bar as well- amazing. Going back for more tonight and tomorrow as well!! See More

The kale chips are the best I have ever had. The lemon squares are so good and as a dessertoholic I have to say they satisfy my sweet tooth. If it wasn't for raw I would never eat healthy!

The "mock tuna pate sandwich" was to die for. Really scrumptious vegan food options. Also excellent choices for fresh juice! Can't wait to go back.

I was so excited to find this place while visiting Chicago! The store (51 huron) is so charming. We tried the spaghetti which was delicious, and the burger patties which I think I liked even more! The... ketchup and mustard were amazing and made the difference. I also got the grapefruit spirulina smoothie. I wish I could have stayed in the city longer just so I could keep coming back for more!

I just tried the sampler plate from the Whole foods Streeterville location and it was SO delicious!!!! I thought I would need sauce or salt, nope! SO much flavor and amazing texture. I didn't want for... anything added and I'm a sauce fanatic. Well done! Can't wait to try the rest! See More

Amazing real food made from ingredients you know! I'm so, so, SO happy to have found this place. Everything is raw and most things are Paleo. Thank you! (only with they'd use Grade B Maple Syrup as... the sweetner in their desserts). See More

Great food, however, I found (or rather bit onto) two millimeter sized stones found in the sweet potato spinach patties. (Perhaps the greens had not been sufficiently washed in processing). My tooth i...s not too happy at the moment. See More
