One of my very favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious. For Valentine’s, they had an amazing pink, heart-shaped strawberry meringue dessert. They are very conscientious about allergies and making sure diners don’t eat something they shouldn’t. Everything they serve is vegan and they have some items that are also gluten-free, but your carnivore friends will like it, too.

The service at gratitude was great! The atmosphere is fun and inviting and all the staff are friendly and accommodating. The theme of the restaurant of ordering through mantra and affirming those is creative and uplifting. All around awesome experience and restaurant!!

This is the second time we’ve been to Gratitude. I’m trying to transition to a plant based diet so I’m trying to find restaurants that are either vegan or plant based. Gratitude fits the bill. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. Who says good for you food has to be boring and bland. The cuisine is very creative and tasty. Try the key lime pie. It’s unbelievably good. Other pluses are $10 corkage and 90 minutes free parking around the side of the building. This is a big plus because parking in Venice can be difficult. Getting reservations is highly recommended. Now for the negatives. There’s only one. The main dining area is very loud with very few booths. If you’re not lucky to get a booth you can expect to be squeezed into a table with little space in between. If that doesn’t appeal to you I recommend eating in the closed patio. Not totally quiet but at least you can hear what’s being said across the table. Having said all this I definitely do recommend this restaurant for everyone whether vegan or not.

We were excited to go there and made a reservation but the hostess didn’t seat us for an hour after we got there and I think accidentally gave our table away. We reserved our table to make it for breakfast but since we were seated so late we didn’t get to have breakfast,. Bummer but the food was good

I was recommended Cafe Gratitude by multiple people, so decided to try when some friends came in town. I was a little disappointed. It is obviously all vegan/organic, which I am fine with and knew going in to. That said, I found the food to be bland. Between appetizers, my entree, and trying my girlfriends, it was pretty underwhelming for the price in my opinion. Would recommend to people looking specifically for vegan restaurants, but other than that I would look else where.

I visited Cafe Gratitude off a recommendation - thanks Nico. The meal I had is easily in my top 5. I had the HUMBLE with the GLOWING juice and finished off with the JOY truffle. Shannon took care of me from start to finish and her service was first class. The meal was so good I bought the cookbook! There's also a question of the day so watch out for that. I am grateful. I wholeheartedly recommend Cafe Gratitude

Terrible service, we waited almost an hour for our food to come out and watched at least 2 parties that ordered after us receive their food and leave before we received our food. Waiter tried to argue with me and claim that everyone else was waiting. They comped part of our meal but it felt like a battle to complain for a legitimate reason.

Beautiful place, excellent food. It was the best vegan cafe where I've been in LA so far.
On the terrace, it was quite noisy but with a great atmosphere.
My friend and I came to celebrate her late birthday, and wanted to order the "Honest" plate. But my friend is allergic to the ginger and it was one of the ingredients there. One of the waiter asked the manager come to our table to discuss how we can replace ginger and if we need, other ingredients. The manager was super nice and very helpful.
We will definitely come back again and I would recommend this place to my friends.
Favorite.
Thank you!

Everything was great but the lady in the front was not friendly like she was to the others that came after us. Maybe because I was Hispanic? I don’t know but I loved the waiter he was so attentive and had personality.

Service was friendly and accommodating but slow. My dish, I Am Evolved, wasn’t true to bibimbap at first (too leafy) but became more palatable in the lower layers: warm, mushy, more blended. Best I’ve felt after a meal in a long time: nourished and satisfied but not bloated or oily. Makes me consider going vegan more often.

My "go to spot" every time I pass through or stay in Southern California. The food is creative and always delicious and Vegan! Wish we had one in Santa Barbara! The people that work there are happy and it exudes into the food and environment. A must try for anyone who has yet to have a positive experience with Vegetarian, Vegan and Raw cuisine!

We loved our meal at Cafe Gratitude. Very fresh and tasty food that is very good for you. The attentiveness to each person's dietary needs was fantastic. Service was not rushed, but we were visited several times after our food arrived to make sure we did not need anything. It's a winner.
