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 except i left my credit card there
never a disappointment... great food, great drinks and amazing vibe!
As always, a great spot for a celebration or just for a casual afternoon. Late November is the perfect time for a leisurely lunch out on the patio-- the perfect temperature and busy, but not too crowded. There are so many options that the challenge is whether to order something tried and true or to be adventurous-- you can't lose either way. Great for bringing visitors to LA as well.
Tried the nacho for the first time... so delish! Always the spicy jalapeño margarita is bomb! Luv it!!
Amazing Vegan Mexican...
..such deliscious food and the Manager was incredibly responsive to our needs.
Really great. Great variety of vegan food. Helpful service.
Beautiful setting, delightful staff, very noisy. Food was great but lacked a bit on the flavor side.
Enjoyed the food but was seated too close to the server computer station
We had a terrific time at Gracias Madre.
I love the outdoor patio, this is the only vegan restaurant that I enjoy. Food is always great, service is great, & nice atmosphere. To me, because I am not vegan, I do not think the prices are the best because there are no expensive proteins on the plate (I.e. top cuts of steak or great seafood), however it is ok for every once in a while.
Another great dinner with friends at Gracias Madre! We sat outside by the fireplace and loved everything. Very friendly staff and good energy overall. The ceviche appetizer was a particular standout.
Phenomenal cocktails and inventive cuisine makes this place stand out amongst Hollywood's best dining spots.
The food was perfectly edible but a bit uninspiringly seasoned for my taste. The guacamole could not have been plainer and the bland cashew crema was utterly forgettable. To their credit, the quality of the ingredients was quite good and I did feel nourished after dining there. The waitstaff was great and the front desk staff were professionally comported but the front desk could have been quite a bit better managed.
Gracias Madre does not disappoint. Besides being one of LA’s prettiest restaurant spaces, the food, cocktails & service are outstanding.
This was my second time and loved it just as much as the first :)
My partner and I came for brunch as I had already come for dinner on a separate occasion and absolutely loved it (I had the crab cakes - they are a must - and chimichanga). Managed to sit outside for brunch and we share the scone - being English I had high expectations and they were definitely met! We also had the Mexican mimosas too which was delightful! Would highly recommend - must book to not be disappointed!!
Great ambiance and service paired with decent vegan organic food ... good for date night or groups !
It's so great having an upscale place for vegan good. The food here is consistently tasty, healthy and beautifully presented.
The service and the food was fantastic. We were seated right away and food came out quickly
hot date with my gf
I’ll never stop going to Gracias Madre. Everytime I’ve gone everything has been top notch - ambience, service, food, cocktails. I’m not even vegan or vegetarian but this is one of my favorite restaurants. I’m totally converted!
The sweet potato flautas are awesome. Had them with sauteed greens and they were good too. Healthy and filling.
Wonderful food, ambiance and service. We plan to be back.
Great food, space, and ambiance.
It was good, I didn’t like what I ordered.
Who knew that 'vegan Mexican' was a thing? I didn't know until I tried Gracias Madre. I know what vegan means and was wondering how they would do in the absence of egg, cheese, etc. I did not need to worry.
Gracias Madre was an amazing experience.
Things we liked:
1. The ambience. We chose to sit outside in a large patio area. The temperature outside was perfect. It really felt like we were in someone's back garden rather than in the middle of a large city.
2. The drinks. I ordered the Michelada de Madre (pictured) which is beer and lime juice in a salted-rim glass. The salted rim also had jalapeño flavor that I found to be yummy. The large ice cube also included jalapeño so the drink got spicier as the ice cube melted.
3. The food. My wife ordered the pozole which was delicious. I ordered a tamale with rajas and a taco with jackfruit carnitas. I don't know what a jackfruit is but if my eyes were shut I wouldn't have known it wasn't pork. Delicious.
4. The salsas. I judge every Mexican restaurant by the quality, flavor and consistency of their salsa. In this regard, Gracias Madre leads them all. I lived 3 years in Mexico and feel I'm a good judge of excellent salsa. Their green and especially their red salsa was the best I have tried in the USA. It was THAT good.
We will return here.
The reason for my review is that we did not get the seating outside I requested while making my reservation way in advance for a very special occasion.
Amazing place with great ambience. The food was a bit disapointing. We had the tasting menu and it was like everything was prepared and just heated. Im sure they can du better, so we will be back to order ala carte some day.
Literally fan flipping tastic- beginning to convert my nonvegan bf. MUAHAH
Fantastic place to eat for vegans and non-vegans! Really great service and delicious food!
Great food in a beautiful setting. Special but casual.
I love, love, love Gracias Madre! Always delicious!!
The food was good but was not that great for the price. Service wasn’t really attentive. I would definitely come back for the destinos and atmosphere but not the food.
Food was fantastic! It's hard to believe that the food was vegan. I had the chile relleno and it was super tasty and a good portion overall. The ambiance is super cute. Went here for a late Saturday dinner but i bet it's so much cuter for brunch. Highly recommend.
was so good for not being vegan! their corn tortillas there are incredible! their cocktail selection is also incredible and the drinks tasted delicious! I even got my boyfriend to try it who’s a huge meat eater and he really liked it! will definitely be coming back in the future
Love Gracias Madre! Wonderful food and service always!
I came here once for brunch and once for dinner. Both dining experience were spectacular. Totally different vibes, but both were excellent. Gracias Madre is definitely a great choice if you're looking for a vegan option with a nice ambiance! During dinner it has dark lighting with candles - good for a date, during brunch it's bright so you get to see the decor with more details - good for casual lunch with a group of friends. The ambience for both brunch and dinner is great. They have very friendly and attentive servers, and a cozy patio outdoor seating to enjoy the Cali weather! It's fun dining experience for foodies who appreciates the creativity behind the innovation of vegan versions of other classic dishes. Food here is not out of your mind amazing, but still good! The jackfruit tacos and the uno bowl are two of my personal favorites.
I Brought my husband here for first time birthday brunch, we thought the host were great at welcoming our arrival since I made reservations. I wasn’t expecting too much flavor and I wasn’t really amazed either, we order the Tower of Spuds with their version of their soy chorizo, it was cold potatoes were a little cold and chewy. Not very flavory but kind of heavy for being appetizers. I recommend sharing for 3 people. coliflor frito was very good, tasty, a little spicy. The tacos that my hubby order were good, hand made tortillas were great! The beans too but the flavor didn’t impress me or my hubby. It’s good but we felt that this place might be a little overpriced for their flavor. The original presentation of the food is good it has a little cozy but didn’t reach my expectations. The only thing that’s cool and original are the mixed drinks :) that’s very original . We tipped 20 percent which was added to the bill , I was not pleased by them adding the tip.. but we did it anyways. I feel like the tip should be up to the guest but we were ok with our server. Server was good at her job, just fair service..lol! The server said she would honor the Mexican weeding cookies dessert but ended up bringing us the chocolate salty ice cream with lemon cookies which were not good . Ok so tip for the owner/chef, or cook the horchata was not good the rice was old .. Shuco” they try to do a home made horchata like salvadoreña style but I think maybe they need to work on their recipe.. cause I am an expert when it comes to horchata and I can tell when the rice is old and has been left in the water too long so yeah ... not yummy and not a good drink to serve if it’s not prepared right. The carrot omg Suzanne drink was awesome I recommend that as morning energizing drink💓
