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.

It’s was pleasant and a fresh new place we needed for our date night.
If you like horrifically conceited staff and average overpriced food, then this is the place for you. It’s definitely an experience and feels very Hollywood but disappointing all at the same time!
Great food and service- roasted corn note to be missed!
I love this place and I was a complete rock star for suggesting this restaurant. The food is always amazing and the design of the restaurant is perfect. I kept watching the look on my guests faces as they kept looking around and saying wow.
I'm coming back for my birthday!
The hostess was extremely rude. She refused to sit us outside when there were many open tables, then sat us in a spot we could barely fit. When we asked the 4th time they finally sat us at one of the MANY available seats outside and said they didn’t realize. The place wasn’t very busy at this time either. I never really comment much on this app, but I’ve never been treated so rudely for no reason. The arrogant attitudes were at an all time high. Had I not already paid for valet I would have left.
It is one of my favorite place. The staff are very nice and welcoming
Absolutely delightful. :) I had the chef's tasting menu and devoured every bite I could handle. :) Some of the best food I've ever eaten & best service I've ever received. Would return in a heartbeat next time I'm in West Hollywood. :)
One of my favorite restaurants! Chef tasting menu is delicious and the margaritas as well!
Romantic atmosphere you want to stay in for hours on end. You have to try the cauliflower and spicy margarita!!
Great birthday atmosphere, great food. Service was top notch.
Great place and great food but extremely busy and it can get extremely loud. If you’re not careful you can bump on your neighbor’s table which we saw happening a lot. The patio is beautiful but very popular.
Recommend the picante margaritas, they’re delicious.
Brought a party of 7 for a birthday. Took over 15 minutes just to take our drink orders, then another 15 to get the orders. They forgot to take our food order in the meantime, we had to stop them and ask to order food. The food was good, but the service in general was extremely slow (and it was 3 PM, not busy, many open tables) and not worth the price.
I called 15 minutes before my reservation to let them
Know I was running late because of the unusual rain in LA. They said it was totally fine. When I get there they told me because I was late they couldn’t hold my reservation anymore and they put me all the way back in line even prioritizing walk-ins. We waited 1 HOUR AND A HALF! On my mother’s birthday. Host attitude was incredibly uncaring, no apologies, no explanations. After talking to the manager she showed “concern” and just plainly apologized. Waitress had a mediocre attitude, service and didn’t make it up for our already ruined night since half of the menu wasn’t available anymore. All this for a person who dined here at least twice a month. What an awful experience. All this just for getting there 5 minutes after their grace period, even though when I called and they stated “it was totally fine”.
My friend and I were running late to the due and upon calling and speaking with Sabrina, she informed us that we would be waiting over an hour plus to get our table due to the rain. We arrived ten minutes after our reservation time and we were provided a table immediately. The table was excellent and the waiter was fabulous. I don’t know if Sabrina worked magic for us but I couldn’t be more thankful and appreciative. We had such a great night!
See and be seen space in Melrose Ave. Perfect for a fun friends night out. Great tortillas and cocktails. Noisy but cozy. Wonderful staff service. Book in advance!
Our server, Mike, and his support crew made our party comfortable in the lightening and thunder storm all around us. Great service and food. We will be back and back again. Thank you
Lovely as usual.
Everything was incredibly delicious!
Gracias Madre was recommended b our hotel concierge and we were so pleased. We are not vegans or vegetarians but the food was excellent nonetheless. Atmosphere was vibrant and the service was friendly and excellent. We shared the chefs tasting menu which was enough food for 2 and a great way to try lots of different dishes.
Great vegan Mexican with huge selection of tequila and mescal
We have eaten at Gracias Madre several times. The first time, it was not so good but we gave it another try and had a better experience. This time, however, it was again disappointing. The restaurant is beautiful, especially the patio, but the host was unfriendly and some of the food we ordered was overcooked and hard as a rock. We have ordered these dishes before so it was a problem with the cooking rather than the recipe. The server was exceptional and the best items were the street corn, crab cakes, nachos, and enchiladas. But the rest of our meal was barely edible. I think this is probably a place to grab one of their amazing cocktails and one of the dishes mentioned at the bar rather than a full dining experience.
I was visiting from out of town with my sister and have eaten here many times and have always really enjoyed it, so wanted her to experience it as well. As usual, the food was amazing, however, I was surprised by the level of service. Our waiter disappeared a few times and took orders from tables that arrived after us. The restaurant was not very busy at the time, so I'm not sure what the reason was, but we often found ourselves wondering where he was, flagging him down when he did show up or asking other waiters to help us out. Again, the food was wonderful and usually I have a great experience, so I'll just assume this was a one-off but it was very disappointing.
Gracias Madre is a go-to whenever I want to impress someone visiting from out of town. Thanks for another great meal!
It’s definitely a drive to get to Gracias Madre from my house but I have been going out of my way to schedule dinner gatherings there. It’s that delicious! I have been a strict vegan for 3 yrs and I have eaten a lot of “forced vegan dishes”... (the kind of dish that was thrown together with every plant-based item in the kitchen and then overseasoned to make it have flavor)
Gracias Madre mastered plant-based cooking! All my non-vegan friends always say that they can’t believe they are eating a completely plant-based meal.
My go-to staples are: the cheese platter, street corn and the jackfruit tacos!
This restaurant is truly a gem. The beautiful decor, delicious food (the sopes are my favorite), fantastic cocktails (loooove the sangria) and great service are the reasons why I keep going back! I really appreciate that despite being in Weho borderline BH the vibe is welcoming of all and feels pretty laid back. I’ve dined here for both brunch and dinner and would recommend either.
Excellent ... always a good meal. Took to show how great the meal is.
Overall, just a wonderful dining experience! We scored a great table on the beautiful patio. There was a festive buzz but still very easy to chat with my dining mates. And our food choice were varied and all delicious. And now let’s talk about those superb margaritas—surely some of the best around!
Great atmosphere and food.
Lovely patio dining. Great drinks. Awesome menu. Fantastic service. Would definitely return!
Great service and delicious food. I’m not vegan but always enjoy the food and drinks at Gracias Madre!
We did the prix fixe menu as we had a group of 10. Everything was really good, and veryyy filling and decadent. The guac with pickled veggies is really good and they give you 1 order per 2 people. It was my first time having jackfruit and it really does have a texture like pulled pork/chicken. Amazing!
Wonderful food, romantic patio and attentive service
Food gave me a headache there’s not much option for desert either
Very good food. Excellent waiter service. Haughty and unaccommodating hostesses.
The food was good and desert ( brownie) was delicious but the service was quite poor! Our server seemed mostly disinterested although he did come by several times to see if we were “doing ok” except he had NO interest in really knowing the answer. He almost looked annoyed if I tired to ask for something or give feedback.
Oh well , not excited to be back here. What a shame !
We had a GREAT brunch here ... our servers Summer and Jarrett were hospitable, knowledgeable, funny and made our experience ! We just popped in for a quick brunch but ended up staying a few hours because of them. We will be back, and must sit in their section :)
There's a reason we keep coming back. It is PRICEY but amazing.
Wonderful place for brunch. We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Only disappointment was that they were out of the mexican mimosa. Other than that everything was perfect. Delicious food and inexpensive.
Our experience at Gracias Madre was pretty exceptional. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for daytime or nighttime.
The food was honestly bland. As a vegan I was excited to visit such a popular plant based restaurant but not one dish I ate blew me away. Nothing was bad by any means but nothing was outstanding. With these price points, and the incredibly noisy environment, I would’ve hoped for some phenomenal food. We had the horchata, vanilla lime soda, street corn, pozole, sopes, young coconut ceviche and the mushroom fajitas. The ceviche and the drinks were the best part with things being progressively less impressive as the restaurant got busier, louder, and the service slowed down. It’s quite possible this is just what happens on Fridays and that maybe a weekday or a lunchtime visit would yield different results. From this experience, the restaurant did not live up to the hype.
