Our mission is to celebrate and serve the presence of the mother which resides above us, within our hearts, within the earth, and in all those who nurture us. We serve cuisine inspired by the kitchens of Mexico sourced from locally grown organic ingredients. Welcome to a seat at love’s table.

The idea of Gracias Madre was first conceived while visiting the families of our employees in Mexico. We wanted to do both; offer organic Mexican food to the communities we serve as well as honor the mothers who work tirelessly in the kitchens of Mexico and often live without their husbands and children while they work side by side with us in California. Inspired by some of the recipes of these families and the love of their mothers, Gracias Madre serves organic, farm fresh, locally sourced food, full of flavor and love with a menu spearheaded by Executive Chef Chandra Gilbert and agave-based cocktail program by Beverage Director Jason Eisner.

Great atmosphere, friendly service and some very good interpretations of Mexican cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed the pozole, the guacamole and the tamal.

It's hard work making vegan food exciting but Gracias Madre do it somehow. Great-looking place and great staff too.

We rarely go all out for lunch and thought we’d come back during the day. The food was as amazing as I remembered. We enjoyed all the things we ordered and drinks were amazing. Can’t wait to come back!

Everything on the brunch menu is amazing, but the plantain French toast and a blueberry scone are absolutely ridiculous – I have been doing brunch for years and have never tried the plantain French toast. Once you’ve tried it, you can never go for brunch without ordering it. It’s the most amazing French toast I’ve ever had – vegan or otherwise

I was celebrating my birthday with a party of 8. They sat us outside at a cute table with a mini bench. The ambiance was gorgeous and the food was incredible.

We came to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were skeptical of a totally vegan menu, but the menu options and food we chose were mostly delicious. We had the crab cakes and quesadillas. The "crab cakes" were amazing and tasted like real crab. The quesadillas were not as impressive but were still pretty good. The chimichanga was big and was thoroughly enjoyed by the person who ordered it. The dish with the potato cakes and mango salsa (can't recall the name) was filling and delicious. The bowls were also a hit. We had bowl two and three. The drinks were good, but there was one that was especially good. I wish I could remember its name. We finished our meal with desserts and hot chocolate. They were not as impressive as the main dishes. We did, however, enjoy the pineapple upside cake. Because it's vegan, the ice cream is not what you are accustomed to. The service is excellent, the ambiance is great and overall the food is very good. The value overall is good. Just keep in mind that it's a vegan restaurant so you may "feel all the fiber" the next day if you're not accustomed to a high fiber diet.

Went here for my husband's birthday since he is vegan. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good (but slow). The food was incredibly bland. The flavors that were present were poor. If you want a hipster vegan restaurant for a scene, this is it. If you want good vegan food, not the best option.

Gracias is the perfect place for an afternoon brunch or a really nice dinner. For this occasion we were here for an afternoon brunch for my friend’s 21st birthday, it was her first time trying and she absolutely loved this place just as much as I do. The UNO bowl is so delicious, my go to at gracias.

Always great. Only second time we’ve sat at the bar. Decided to do that rather than wait for a table, which was a bummer to start because we had this reservation. Still good but the bar staff is not as attentive as the servers usually are.

We drive up from Long Beach to enjoy GM's delicious vegan take on Mexican food. While it is a long haul, i just wish we could do it more often. Brought our 19-year old this time so we could drink more than one of their delicious Purista margaritas! So nice to let my guard down when ordering food that i know will be cholesterol free!

It's too dark that you need to use your phone to iluminate the menu. My main course was at best bland and tasteless and appeared burned at the edges.

Overall lovely restaurant. The atmosphere and look are very nice, while the cocktails were above average. The food was so so at best, I had the fajitas and the accompanying plate came Luke warm with overcooked rice and cold black beans. The cauliflower was prepared nicely, but it was hard to discern the difference in the cashew nacho cheese and the chipotle aioli. Service was nice and present, but not overbearing. Would recommend for a cocktail and maybe appetizer, but not for the full meal experience.
