The food is excellent. The Torta Chopped Salad with Mushroom Carnitas was one of the best salads I've had. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food came out very fast. Great atmosphere. A bit pricey for a salad but that's to be expected at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. I will definitely go back!

Noise level is ridiculous.
Seating was crowded - cafe chairs bumping into the people behind us and sitting directly over two other diners. Awkward and strange.
I would never go back unless we sit outside.
Leftover entree dish had soured by next day.
Unsettling.
Also they were sold out of the only 2 desserts we were interested in.
Gluten free options were difficult to identify.

Had the Brussels sprouts and the fried mushroom sandwich and both were delicious. The iron skillet cookie was out of this world. Want to request the fried mushroom sandwich be a permanent menu fixture.
Service was very friendly and efficient. Can't wait to come back.

Great food at an affordable price. Took my mom here for mother’s day and the whole family loved it! The service was great and I will definitely be back. My only wish would be that there was more outdoor seating.

I am Vivid, I am Empowered, I am Cozy...This is what I ordered over Mother's Day since the establishment encourages patrons to order the items on the menu under their code names and with the sentence "I am...". Ok maybe I made it sound lame, but it really is not. My mom, wife, sister and college age daughters thought it was just the right touch in completing a healthy vibe for our breakfast together. BTW the food was really good and it satisfied both my Vegan sister's needs while not alienating my 73 year old mother's sensibilities. The service was bright, cheery and competent and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. It's nice to know that there are healthy places to go out to eat at that leave one with a good fresh feeling as well. Well done!

This place has a nice attitude, but is a bit expensive.
Cauliflower - great. Macrobiotic bowl - very good, but the sea vegetable could have been better. Indian bowl (Humble?) - excellent because a little sweeter (with chutney) than the macrobiotic bowl. All the drinks were dissappointing from a Michelada, to a Pear cocktail (with sherry), to a wellness shot (Brave) with lemon ginger turmeric etc. Sad that they ran out of the key lime pie, so we couldnt try.

The “carnitas” is a $4.5 add on... it is literally a teaspoon worth. Left hungry after $45 for lunch

One of my FAVORITE vegan gluten free places to eat! The nachos to share are amazing, the indian bowl is the best and the black bean burger is awesome. Also, I love the tumeric latte. Everything is yummy! Service is great. Perfect place for a date, getting coffee/lunch with a friend or stopping in just for a juice.

Amazing place!!! I took my best friend there because she can’t have gluten and meat. The food was amazing and even though being gluten free and no meat (for all the doubters), it was so flavor full and full of so much goodness and so filling. And the theme of the restaurant is all affirmations and positivity.

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.

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.
