    I'm a selective eater because I'm a vegetarian. My non-vegetarian friend is just plain picky. We can always agree on going to Cafe Gratitude and enjoy ourselves so much each time. Food is fabulous and service is always attentive and quick! Love C G - desserts are to die for.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The food at Cafe Gratitude is delicious. While its selections are vegan/vegetarian, flavor-wise omnivores will also be pleased. Service is very friendly and attentive, although the insistence on using the "daily affirmation" names of the dishes is a bit much. I was all for trying the food and loving the service, but when I said, "I'd like the veggie burger" instead of ordering per instruction (i.e., "I am MAGICAL!", our waitress replied back, "YOU ARE MAGICAL!". Yeah, but no thanks. I'll take the veggie without the daily affirmation, thank you very much. Other than that, I would recommend it as a place to get delicious, healthy food.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
