Diner Reviews
  • "I'm a meat eater, and even I like this place. We are repeat diners and tend to take our out of town guests here to give them a truly authentic LA experience."

  • "Great food, great service! This is one of my favorite places to go for good quality, healthy food!"

  • "Great veggie menu. We went to this location and are so happy to have found this place. Their brunch is healthy and has amazing food."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "But I like the food here every now and then. Celebrity sightings is possible. Dinner for two will be $50+ on average. The chatter is a little loud so you need to talk over all the conversation happening at once."

  • "There was not a moment that I did not enjoy what I was eating ... the end! And our waitress was flexible and ubre friendly. Gold star for her!!"

  • "It was my daughter's 23rd birthday and she is a vegan. She loved this place and the service was terrific. They noted that I informed them on line that it was her birthday and brought her a sweet treat at the end of the meal. The prices are good and the food is delicious."

  • "We love this restaurant. We always make a point to reserve a table ahead of time whenever we are in So. Cal. The staff is always so pleasant and makes our dining experience relaxing and enjoyable. The food is always wonderful. It's a "must-stop" every time we are in town."

  • "We had an amazing meal. Every thing we had was incredibly fresh and very flavorful. The potato salad appetizer was such a delightful explosion of flavors. My eggplant entree was yummy and the peach rooibus tea yummy too. We polished it off with the mint choco chip milkshake which was so good! Love this place."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Food was good, but I was so annoyed with the service! Basically while eating they kept bothering and placed the bill on our table. There was no time to enjoy at all... I felt pressured to vacate the table asap (though I had made a reservation). This is what I call no eating-culture. Also the surrounding (right next to the street) - we were sitting outside - was not all that enjoyable. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Everything about dining here was wonderful. The food was fantastic, the staff could not have been nicer and the sangria was also notable. I loved the gimmick that forces you to affirm something positive about yourself as you order (just go there, you'll see what I mean). Even if you think that you're not a fan of vegan fare, you'll enjoy this place."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "The food here is vegan, but even if you aren't, you will find it flavorful and filling. The portions are a good size and everything I've had there is really tasty. The restaurant has a casual neighborhood feel. The service is very warm and friendly, if anything overly so."

  • "Went here on a recommendation from a friend (who mentioned Beyonce eats here) with my mother. I can't eat gluten or dairy so this helped take some stress out of eating out/ordering. We sat on the patio which was very crowded for noon on a Saturday, in any case the food was really great - probably the best vegan food I've ever had. Apparently the server is supposed to make you order your food by saying "I am (insert dish name)" and then server to you by saying "you are (insert dish name)." Thankfully our server did not make us do that and other than the very crowded patio, we had a very pleasant experience here. Would certainly eat there again."

  • "How wonderful to find a place like Cafe Gratitude, where not only the menu is assorted, tasteful and healthy but where the dining experience is pleasant. Excellent menu, great atmosphere and excellent customer service, also very original and conscious helping create awareness with the names of the dishes and the question or reflection of the day. Cafe Gratitude, great work! We need more restaurants like this in the world!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This restaurant goes the extra mile to present not only very delicious and healthy plant-based cuisine, but your heart and soul are nourished as well... from the uplifting and positive-affirming artwork on the walls (and even on the restroom mirrors), to the staff's T-shirts that uniquely spell out L-O-V-E. The culinary creations have positive, uplifting names. Even the ordering process is designed to encourage your health. We enjoyed the Magical and Awesome dishes. Although the mustard sauce on 1 dish was a bit overwhelming & they seem to have a policy of rounding up your total to eliminate coin change, we will definitely return when in the area. Kudos to the owner's vision for making a real difference in our world...one meal at a time! "

  • "Fresh, fresh, fresh!!!! Oh gosh, the menu was filled with choices and creativity. We ordered 3 things and ALL were delicious. Highly recommend!!!!"

  • "Very tasty vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and raw vegan food. Even non-vegetarians enjoy the well seasoned food here."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I have only been for lunch. Reservations are a good idea as this is a popular place. Parking can be a little challenging at peak times (2hr metered parking unless you find something on a side street). The service is so friendly and good. Huge selection of food and all of it great - hard to choose. Nice size portions make this a reasonably priced place. Healthy vegan fare that is satisfying to the palette. "

  • "Gourmet is how to describe the offerings at CG. Better than Real Food Daily. Portions always enough to share"

  • "First time in this restaurant. They only take a very small percentage for reservations. By far the majority are for walk-ins. Very lively and clean place, even for a Monday evening. Beautiful people and beautifully presented food. Very LA place. My date is a vegan and i am not however, i must say that the food is very filling. Even a big steak eater would be full after one and a half bowls of chow. Made reservations for 9 pm through OpenTable, however we got there much earlier than expected at 7:30. Told the receptionist, no problem it seems. The tables are a bit too close for me and it is loud in there. Difficult to flag down staff due to high volume. Not the staff's fault at all. i will definitely go back again. "

  • "We've been here several times because we're vegetarians, but I wasn't as happy about the service and ambiance as I was in the past. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This place never disappoints! Everything is always soooo yummy. Even if you aren't a vegan, you will love it!"
    Dined on 6/20/2013
  • "I'm not a vegan by any stretch of the imagination, so I don't know what good vegan food is. My meal was ok - had the garden burger. My friend had some sort of salad. A bit pricey for everything, but considering it's near Larchmont Village, it's reasonable, I suppose. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "While I'm not a vegan & I'd go back here any day, every day - delicious! My friend is a vegan - & she was so happy at Cafe Gratitude - the menu offers an array of creative, mouth-watering choices - & the food was delicious!!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "excellent vegan and vegetarian options catering to many tastes--from indian to mexican. the cocount pie was so good, i ordered a second one!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I was introduced to Café Gratitude by colleagues who are vegan. I decided to eat there and the food was excellent since I was non-vegan. I have changed my eating habits to more healthier cuisines. When family or friends visit me I make sure Café Gratitude is the place they experience for their first time."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I discovered this place while looking up best dessert bars in LA. I'm a vegetarian so the part about this place being vegan was an additional attraction for me! The food was amazing, the portions are really great, and the service is perfect! And of course the dessert is the best part! You can go to this place with your family..friends..significant other..or anybody!"

  • "All good except your sparkling water. Way too obviously unnaturally carbonated. Waitress was very personable. Nosie level too high for normal conversation in the outdoor room...... Glad to have this food avaiable in our area!!!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "This restaurant was highly recommended. I was impressed with the creativity on the menu, but when I explained to my excellent server (Kelly) that I was an "oil-free" vegan, everything sort of grinded to a halt. She took the time to comb through the ingredient lists, but was only able to come back to me with a couple of options. As an oil-free vegan, my options are limited when dining out, but we never seem to have a problem making delicious oil-free vegan dishes at home. While the food we ordered was delicious, I was disappointed that Cafe Gratitude was not able to offer me a greater variety of oil-free choices. This was definitely better than most vegan restaurant experiences, but I would have appreciated more oil-free options on the menu."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Food was incredible. Great for gluten free dairy free organic eaters. Gives vegan and vegetarian food a great reputation. Would love to go there lots if I lived there (but I don't). Wait staff was great. And atmosphere was great as well. Highly recommend. And I am fairly picky"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Great vegetarian food place. Well-rounded menu, with excellent appetizers, main dishes and desserts."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "If you want to try something new- this is it! I'm not a vegan but if I could eat food like this all the time, I definitely would be one! I don't miss the meat at all! Very good food. The only thing I would say is that the portions are small so my friend and I went down the street to grab dessert and coffee."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Cafe Gratitude was amazing! Food was spectacular and the atmosphere was lovely. As my first completely vegan restaurant, it was the best, never had that many main course options before! Thanks for the wonderful service as well!!! Will definitely be back! ;D"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "A friend just introduced me to Café Gratitude and I loved it so much, I brought another friend here the very next day! This exceptional vegan restaurant is now on my favorite restaurant list. All of the flavors over the two visits shoot out in my mouth and make me want more - from the Bruschetta to the Elixirs to the wonderful entrees. I would watch other tables' food being delivered - exciting me again for my next time there. The thought of the day is another nice touch. Café Gratitude is not to be missed."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Every single dish, juice, and shake that my party ordered was fantastic and filling. I don't think anybody was able to finish his or her dish. My only complaint is that the noise level was a bit high. But I would come back here nonetheless."

  • "If you are looking for great food that is fresh, organic and vegan you will want to check out Gratitude Cafe."

  • "We had a great evening - but but ruined at the end by an extremely rude young Blonde Lady with short hair at the reception --- I asked her for a Biz Card and there was only one - so she literally said with not even a smile: "here you go!!" I asked for another one and looking straight at me with an attitude: "that's all I have!"Did not say anything. Went to the Boutique and found some more Biz Cards - so I took a bunch of them and went back and gave it to her - and said here you are. She took them without a word - so I told her: "You are a very rude young lady! Pity!' She replied not even giving me a glance: "Thank You!" So I replied" "That's it!" She shot back arrogantly: "Thank You!"....."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I must confess that I don't frequent restaurants that don't have fish or chicken on the menu. Cafe Gratitude redefined my ideas about a vegan menu and far exceeded my expectations. Great preparations with organic ingredients to do for!"

  • "We were in LA for a concert and went out of our way to eat at Cafe Gratitude based on word of mouth. We practice and Vegan lifestyle and live in an area that doesn't exactly cater to our needs so we love any chance to eat out (especially breakfast). The food and drinks were excellent (probably the best cafe latte I've ever had). The service was great, everyone seemed truly happy to be working there and went out of their way to make sure you were having an enjoyable experience. And the atmosphere or gratitude was a refreshing change from other place. We would drive hours out of my way to go back here."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We are big fans of Café gratitude. We went to this restaurant because we were in the neighborhood and wanted to try it out. Well it was good, but, it was not nearly as good as the Venice Café gratitude. We will definitely go back to the Venice Café gratitude. Not sure we would go out of our way to go back to this restaurant."

  • "The staff are kind, helpful, and attentive. The food is excellent - I haven't tried everything yet, but eggplant parmesan and brussel sprouts are my favorites. The polenta and mushroom special dish was very rich, and easily shared. Love the Cozy beverage. Have eaten lunch and dinner, as well as attended a dinner birthday party for the friend who introduced me to the restaurant. Love the set up and selection. Don't love the noise. It is impossible to have a conversation in the restaurant unless you yell. Haven't eaten in the covered patio yet, but will give it a try next time. Highly recommend the food!"
