One of my favorite places in San Diego. Service was slow today and two menu options were unavailable because the restaurant ran out of them. It may have been an off-day.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out, everything from the initial contact by the hostess to check out process was seamless. Grateful to have experienced such a memorable time in beautiful San Diego! Would love to return to Cafe Gratitude!

Service and food were good, but the portion size of my avocado toast was really tiny. It looked like maybe a quarter of an avocado smashed on top of a very thin slice of bread. I was pretty disappointed.

Great place! Just expect to have a wait with your table or getting your food. It’s a busy spot! But well worth the wait! Will be back

My boyfriend and I went for dinner on Valentine’s Day. It was such a great experience. The 5 course meal was delicious, I’m still thinking about how good the strawberry cheesecake was! Our server was a sweetheart. 10/10 would recommend, we’re definitely going to be back.

There is a two-top table in the middle of the restaurant/service area that just shouldn’t be there... and that’s where we were seated. What was supposed to be a nice, relaxing, intimate dinner turned into servers and patrons alike walking around our table, running into each other, squeezing by, etc., and when we commented on this to hostess we got a paltry, “Sorry.”

Provide your customers with an experience becoming of the ambiance of the restaurant versus trying to cram in more tables.

The food is always great. Convenient location in Little Italy. Clean, healthy and creatively delicious options to help in my transition to a more plant based diet.

What we had was great, however quite disappointing that they were out of many food and beverage options. Our server explained that is was a Monday and they get their deliveries on Tuesdays. So, in my opinion, if this is happening regularly-FIX IT!! Adjust the order so you don’t run out on Mondays.

My 2nd visit to this great restaurant. Brought my hubby this time and he was super impressed. Fresh ingredients make for amazing flavor combinations. Put this at the top of your list of vegan restaurants in San Diego!

Food was ok. 2 people cost over $70. That's pretty expensive greens

I had the Dedicated and it just explodes with flavor. We also had the eonchiladas and it’s amazing how they can get it to have the texture of pulled pork. You wouldn’t know the difference!

We loved the food. The server correctly told us that the portions are very generous. Because of that, my husband and I tried one starter (kale salad) and two bowls. We’d love to go back there and try some more their dishes. Salad was wonderful. Very tender kale and delicious dressing.
It was nice except for one thing. The music was so loud it was hard to have a conversation. Any that, we had a lovely evening there.
