This place is so good. The Pozole is ridiculous. Service is wonderful as well!
Service was very slow but once we ordered it was forgotten. Ordered torta and my husband ordered flautas de comote . The dishes were outstanding. I have never eaten a better torta w/ or w/o meat. Half was filling but had to eat whole thing it was so good w escabeche. Black bean spread on best bread (acme)in the world. Hadn't been here since shutdown of pandemic and glad to he back. Can't wait to be back.
I didn't realize this restaurant was vegan until I arrived. (I'm not vegan.) My party and I were all pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and we actually want to go back. :)
My meat loving
Delicious plant based food that everyone at the table can enjoy! Plenty of amazing drinks to try, definitely plan to come again
The food is good for vegan fair. Flavors are good and not sweet. That being said, salsas could be spicier and stronger flavored.
Some of the prices do not make sense
We really enjoyed our lunch at Gracias Madre. The food was amazing, the staff (Natalie and Anna), took excellent care of us and helped us celebrate my Mom's birthday. One of the best margaritas I have ever had! We enjoyed the flautas, quesadilla, Bowl Uno, strawberry cheesecake and flan. If we lived in San Francisco, we would definitely eat there, at least once a week. We highly recommend that you visit for the food, cocktails and hospitality!
Great food! Had to wait about 10 min for our table to be ready
I’m not a vegan and restaurants like this help me realize how yummy vegan food can be. Very nice staff. Great spot!
Honestly... The food was not great. I ordered a sweet potato quesadilla and it was just an entirely too thick log of sweet potatoes with barely any flavoring. My dining partner had the avocado toast which tasted okay, but was fairly unappetizing to look at. The drinks were fine. The service and location were lovely. I won't be coming back.
The food was delicious but the service was incredibly slow. The server didn’t check on us for quite some time and when she finally did we ordered a round of drinks which we didn’t see for at least 20 minutes and it required prompting from a different server who walked by. I don’t know if the cost and time wasted was worth the good food.
Great place for vegan food! Friendly staff and excellent cocktails.
Very good food and drinks! Love that everything is vegan and everything was so delicious!
Only cons, a bit pricey! and parking is not very good. Not in the most desirable location of SF (had a lot of strangers/creeps trying to talk/catcall my friend and I and we witnessed one man try to aggressively grab a young girls arm when she ignored him trying to talk/catcall her.)
Lovely evening with a dear old friend- great food and service.
I love that this restaurant remains open, and that it requires proof of vaccinations. We had a nice lunch there for the first time since Covid hit, so it was a nice treat to even be able to enjoy a sit-down mean in a vegan restaurant. Thanks for being there for us, and also for being safe.
Great desserts and horchata lattes.
I love this iconic SF vegan restaurant. I don't get the chance to eat there often, but it's always nice when I get a chance to. I took a vegan friend who hadn't been to California before, and she enjoyed it thoroughly. The gorditas, tortas, and quesadillas were all solid and fresh. They have an extensive mezcal and tequila drink list, too. I'll definitely keep coming back!
Food was very cold. Staff was very friendly.
I told them I was allergic to treenuts but my food had traces of treenuts because I had an allergic reaction afterwards.
We love this spot. However, the last couple visits the dishes were way too spicy (and we are not usually sensitive to spice) despite the server saying they were medium spice to the point of being almost inedible. That said, solid vegan fare and anything with the jackfruit carnitas is bomb.
Food was decent for vegan cuisine but nothing amazing. I have been to the LA location and the food and ambiance is much nicer at that location
I went to Gracias Madre ten years ago and loved it. My SF bestie told me it is still the best vegan restaurant in the city. She was right! The staff was so kind and the food was amazing! I had the tamal and my son had the torta. We shared the cauliflor frito for an appetizer and the chocolate cake for dessert. My only non-"five" in my review was just because they were packed and we ended up next to the bar and payment station, but that won't deter me in the future. I will go to Gracias Madre every time I'm in the city!
Came back here for the 2nd time with my friend for lunch. Food was delicious, service was a bit slower than I remembered.
Really excellent front staff. We had asked for an outside seating and they had a table right by the street for us. Being vegetarian‘s, the options on the menu were really interesting… This was our first experience dining at this restaurant and I have to say that both of us enjoyed it and will be back.
Exceptional quality of food. I’m not vegan at all but I LOVE their food. The drinks are on point. The service is very diligent and friendly.
Great food and good service. It's refreshing to have such a flavorful vegan meal. One of my favorite places to eat when visiting the city. All of their vegetables come straight from their non GMO garden. And their margaritas are also deliciois!
Sat at a table that had no light and was impossible to read the menu with out using a flash light. Pretty dark since is was an 11:30 am seating. We did mention it. Funny how you remember and irritation like that.
Food was excellent and generous portions. I had the posole and would definitely order that again.
Best chilaquiles I’ve ever had! Service was great too. Coming back!
Loved the creativity in the plant based cuisine! The service was top notch and will be back again.
Nice menu, sat outside, service a little slow, we like the ambiance
It was our first time here. We ordered the jackfruit tacos and soy chorizo burrito. Delicious and satisfying. The tacos come in 3's, you can share these. Order with avocados slices on top!
Love this place!
incredible service, food, and drink! mood lighting was great for our date :) thank you again <3
I love that it's a vegan experience. The drinks are way overpriced and all ice served if unusual glasses. The bowl we ordered was served missing a key ingredient. They fixed the issue but it was indicative of the experience. The cauliflower was very good. The cheesecake was also good. I'm GF and nice to have choices
Gracias Madre is such a treasure. Their food is beautiful and imaginative and the ambiance is as well. I've been coming here for years and hope to for many more.
Food was great for a vegan Mexican restaurant. The people I invited to try it out said I made a great choice of where to eat.
Everything was so tasty, and
everything is great, you cannot go wrong. Prices reasonable
Wonderful service ! Really great and authentic Mexican dishes
The food, drinks and service was great per usual. The post-COVID ambiance needs some work. Maybe turn up the music a little for a more lively experience.
