It was good overall, fabulous cocktails were the standouts. There was a mistake in my daughter’s order and there was way less guac on my plate than my friends but all in all it was good.

Gracias Madre never disappoints. We have several favorite restaurants in San Francisco and Gracias Madre is always our first choice. This last trip we brought my daughter and her wife here for their first experience and it's their new favorite too!

Had a wonderful time at Gracias Madre. I was glad I made a reservation because it looked like there were lots of people waiting to get a table. I had the jackfruit tacos and a spicy margarita and absolutely loved them. It was a lot of food! Their chips and salsa are super good too! Staff was super nice and welcoming :)

My friend has a severely allergic to citrus foods. Last time we went to a gracias madre in LA they did not take it seriously. Luckily my friend had her medicine that time. This time in SF. Our server went above and beyond to make sure she was safe. He made our experience a 10/10

Mother’s Day Brunch! Service was a bit slow, considering we had the first reservation time of the day... but at least attentive. The French toast was soggy-they took back to kitchen and remade it-better B the second time around.
Everything else was delicious! Will definitely be back

Service was really wonderful! Our waiter was very kind and funny.

Food was pretty good although a lot of our items tasted very similar - wish we would’ve ordered more variety!

It’s always so good and food comes out quick! But this time service was horrible. There were several employees but took a while to come and greet us to take our order, give us the bill, etc. At the end, we got so impatient that we just went up to the employee and handed her the bill to pay because ig would have taken forever for her to come back.

We’re long-time customers. We ended up dining inside instead of outdoor. Service, etc. was as usual, very friendly and professional. Unfortunately, my hash with chorizo was so salty that I couldn’t eat it. The server graciously didn’t charge us for that, which I think was the right thing to do.
Over salted food is common in restaurants—my theory is that chefs are so accustomed to salt that they have a hard time noticing when there is too much.
We’re happy that you’ve made it through the pandemic and looking forward to many more visits.

Great for vegans! Good cocktails. But while SF/California is still trying to figure out their covid culture it’s kinda weird... not worth going out if you’re expected to throw a dirty mask on your face each time (a masked) employee approaches your table.

I love Gracias Madré! They’re food is amazing & I usually have great experiences there but my last experience was a lil dystopian because our server was so spooked by the Rona that he would barely come near our table!! I don’t think I’ll be back until everyone stops acting so scary...his behavior threw the whole vibe off!!

Tables were set up in the sidewalk and very small. Time limits were set but food and service were slow which made us feel both rushed and waiting at the same time. Food was very mediocre for the price and compared to other vegan options in the city.

Credit card was required to hold reservation for party of 5. Upon arrival, they did not have a table for us. We had to negotiate being allowed to go inside to have drinks while we waited for our table. We were not permitted (due to COVID) to sit together while having our drinks. We waited over an hour to be seated and again, weren’t even together during the 1 hour+ waiting time. We asked for restaurant to consider comping a round of drinks due to the inconvenience and instead comped ONE order of chips and salsa. The whole experience from the moment we arrived was horrible. We will never return, which is too bad, as I had been a loyal customer. Shame on this restaurant. Super disappointing.

Amazing food with a menu selection that left my boyfriend incredulous that it was all vegan! Despite the current dining restrictions and us being the last table sat, the staff was welcoming, professional, and provided a lovely dining experience. There will definitely be a date night there again.

The food is so damned good. I am carnivorous AF and this place fills my belly with deliciousness sans meat! I love this place. So flavorful. GO GO GO!
The Hibiscus Margaritas are a real treat too.

Decent food, but the service was disappointing. I thought they maybe didn’t serve salsa since it was never offered or brought to our table. When I went inside to use the restroom (after finishing our meal) I saw a whole area with salsa. The only time we saw our server was when she took our order and brought our food. The only really exceptional part of the meal were the black beans. They were exquisite!

Food just really wasn't that special or compelling. I could've made a better version the $11 avocado toast with what I already had in my house from Trader Joe's.

Unfortunately this place is next door to a homeless market which isn’t safe for outdoor dining during the pandemic restrictions. Sitting outside we had a lighter thrown at us by a mentally challenged man and there was a fist fight between two other homeless men that broke out. The city also placed public temporary homeless portable toilets right next to the outdoor parklet where this restaurant seats their guests which was being heavily used. We obviously left before ordering due to safety and hygienic concerns. There was a party seated next to us and they asked us not to leave because they also didn’t feel safe but had already ordered food and were also thinking about leaving. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but I don’t believe their outdoor parklet space is safe for patrons right now.
