This is my first time taking the journey of being a vegan, and this restaurant has made me like my decision even more! The food is so delicious!

The staff is always friendly and genuinely amazing.
The food is expensive, but you get what you pay for- if you want vegan food that is all organic and healthy, you'll pay for it, right? My only complaint is that the skillet cookie I ordered was WAY overdone and very unimpressive for the $12 I spent. I never saw the waiter until 20 minutes later, so I couldn't send back.

This place never disappoints, and I sincerely mean that. Hadn’t been here in two years. Wasn’t sure what it would be like. Came here for a date, and the food, attention to detail and overall experience was phenomenal. Not sure how these guys consistently keep up this level of quality, but theyre amazing, the entire staff.

What a disappointing experience! I've been to the Venice location several times and was so excited to chose this Restaurant for my Birthday lunch with a good friend... after raving about what a cool experience CG offers. How embarrassing! Our waitress was so lack luster, and you could tell hated her job. The irony that she works at Gratitude Cafe. She offered very few recommendations regarding menu options when asked and I don even recall her checking on us. With the many options in LA, I'm bummed that this location will never make it on my list again.

We love Cafe Gratitude!! The food is delicious and we would be here every week if we lived closer. It was pretty crowded on a Saturday lunch, so glad we had a reservation. It was very loud but still nice for a birthday lunch. Again, cannot beat their tasty food!

Our server was excellent, friendly and patient since we were chatting and took us a bit to order. The only reason I give a very good on service is the hostess. It was cold out and even though she explained they had heaters we preferred to sit inside. She either did not seem happy we didn’t want to sit outside or was having a bad day. When she showed us to the table and gave us the menus I thanked her and got no reply.
The food as always was delicious. It was my sister-in-law’s first time and she was very happy with her Indian Curry Bowl. I had the I got the Indonesian Grain Bowl which was very good.
Chai was excellent!

We were a party of six for breakfast. They were out of many items, to the point where the available choices were really few. The waiter was not curteous nor apologetic for the menu shortcomings. He was rude and had a pretty arrogant attitude, as if he was doing us a favor. The food was OK but the experience poor at any price. For their price, not worth it. We will not be returning.

Outstanding service and ambience - The menu items are affirmation words, so when you order they repeat back to you "You are grounded, you are trusting" aka I got the smashed red potatoes with house made cashew fiesta sauce (aka grounded) and tempeh scramble (trusting). That freakin' cashew sauce and potatoes were so so tasty. My waiter also gave me hot water with lemon wedges on the house - thank you! (Sorry I don't remember your name.)
It was quiet in the morning at 8AM when I went - music about medium in volume (like if you had a migraine it might be too loud?). I dug the music selection for whatever that subjective opinion is worth.
There are affirmations on the walls. Seasonal food.

Not cheap, but not out of this world expensive either. I would say the price matches the quality and consideration put into the food options. Definitely will be back to try the herbal lattes and fresh juice mmm.

Lastly, I love that it was sorta simple - a lot of vegan places make these wild dishes with ingredients you've never heard of - needn't be so fancy to taste amazing! And still an interesting array/combination of flavors.

We had stopped coming here because the portions had become so small that we would leave hungry after a meal. That seems to have changed and our dinner was really good and filling this last time around. Thank you for stepping up your game we are grateful for the change and will be back.

edited to add that we went back thinking this place had changed but we received such small unsatisying and overpriced portions that I had to edit my review. Too bad, doubt we will ever go back plus they really need to clean the place. The bathrooms and floors are filthy which doesn't inspire confidence in the overall hygiene of the place.

I’ve been to Cafe Gratitude twice now. The first time I thought the food was flavorless. I gave it a 2nd chance—again, I couldn’t eat what was on my plate.

I’m guessing a vegan diet is pretty bland and Cafe Gratitude does nothing to change that impression for me.

The wine, was delicious—expensive, but delicious.

This place is very hit or miss. Sometimes the vegan options just work (SF burrito is great and the grain bowls are often a good choice) and sometimes things just miss the mark (not worth having the "pizzas"). Had a delicious vegan mushroom soup however, frustrating salad choice. My mother specifically told the waitress that she can't handle spice and the salad we ordered, the Fantastic, unbeknownst to us (it wasn't listed on the menu) had hot sauce in it! We didn't send it back but mentioned it was really hard to eat; we asked if we could possible have some bread to cut the spice. We were then charged for the bread, when really, we shouldn't have even been charged for the salad after we complained about how spicy it was! For a place that has no meat on the menu, it is pretty expensive.
