Mexican
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.

My friend and I were supposed to go to San Francisco but unfortunately plans changed. We decided to have girls self care day and Gracias Madre was the best way to end our day! We loved everything about it from the food, the ambience, the service, and the music was amazing! We will be going again for sure! My friend was so delighted that she was able to eat everything on the menu!

Great food, ambiance, and service.
The only thing that was bothersome is the hostess was rude to me and my friend as well as the other hostesses. She didn't look up to make eye contact and ordered the other hostesses around in a very rude manner.

Love Gracias Madre! Tip- park at the Library on San Vicente and Melrose and walk a couple blocks to the restaurant.
Staff is friendly and the drinks are delicious. The bartenders aren’t all that personable. One of the hostesses was a bit snooty and that is not what you’d expect as a first impression but maybe it was just an off night. Our waiter (tall dark and handsome) was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. He recommended dishes which we ordered and thoroughly enjoyed all the way through to dessert. Tip- always let the waiter tell you what to order. They want a good tip. They won’t steer you wrong. The menu has just gotten better and better every time I go there. Do yourself a favor and go to Gracias Madre even if you aren’t a vegan/vegetarian. You won’t miss the meat at all and you’ll have a memorable experience. This is one of my top ten favorite restaurants in LA.

I was 10 minutes prior to my reservation time and I waited an extra 15 after the time set. I had to approach the hostess to inquire about my table and was told someone was still in my table and there was no way of knowing how much longer it would be. People that just walked in got a table before me. When we finally got a table it took forever for our food to be served. The waiter was nice but I am not likely going back, defy not worth the trouble!

Been coming here for 4+ years and always loved it until my last visit. Despite a reservation we had to wait 30 minutes for a table and then had very slow service. We were excited to take new friends here but it was embarrassing. Also the "pitcher" of margaritas was laughable. Not coming back.

The jackfruit tacos were really good. Everything else was just okay. I expected more from the street corn and I don't why they call their cucumber salad a cucumber salad. It was far from it as I only found 4 pieces of cucumber and very few black means. It was a bunch of arugula. The dressing; however, was spot on. The tamal was subpar. The cocktails are pretty decent. The crowd is incredibly annoying.

Your category on noise level is worthless. Where is, “too loud”. You know you can have a restaurant where the noise level is too loud. Not energetic. If you are going to have a survey at least make it honest.

This is not my first time at Gracias Madre, so there is something to be said for the fact that we keep coming back here. We enjoy taking guests/visitors here because it is so unique–Mexican food that is entirely vegan is quite a rare find even in LA, let alone outside of it.
The service was very pleasant and prompt and our guests really enjoyed their experience and the food. Will be back soon.

I'm vegan, but love taking non-vegan friends to Gracias Madre to see their amazement at how great vegan food can be. But even if it weren't for that, it's just a great restaurant with great ambiance!

Drinks were delicious. I had the purisita with Mezcal. It refreshing and honest - with only pure and natural ingredients it wasn’t overly sweet and had a lightness appropriate for summer.
I had the bowl, the Uno and it was hearty, savory, and fresh.
I will say $12 for a very simple guacamole is very overpriced but you can’t not have guacamole as a starter!
