채식주의자입니다.
Explanation:
This is a literal translation.
However, when you say so at a restaurant, it may not immediately register with the server that you won't eat ANY meat, since it's fairly common to have a 'vegetarian' that eat some limited amount or types of meat.

Therefore, it would be a good idea to also say, 'Do not include ANY meat':
(고기는 절대 넣지 마세요.)

I\'d like to change my answer line to: \'저는 채식주의자입니다.\'
The new answer adds \'저는 (I am)\' to the previous one. In typical conversational Korean, often references to the speaker (self) are dropped. However, it would be more natural to include such refernce if you\'re talking to a server at a restaurant.
