Gracias Madre - West Hollywood
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.
Need to book at 9:45 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
We had an anniversary. Booked for my wife and i but unfortunately hosts didn’t pay attention day i wanted to have as much as I expected. Showed up on time and been told so many times that they will check it but everytime i ask, she just ignored and kept me wait 1h45min yes exactly until 8:45pm. If u cant schedule 2-3 persons in your place or at least make it doable, forget how quality your beverages are or food is. What i did was just leaving the place and go some random bar in neighborhood with my wife. Had happy anniversary but unhappy experience with you guys. Dont think i will come back on a normal day. Thanks
Celebrated a double birthday indoors on a rainy Friday night and our charming waiter Mike went above and beyond to ensure a delightful experience!!
Good came out cold. Waiter was not attentive. Too expensive for not being very special.
Restaurant was first choice, chosen by my granddaughter for her birthday. Atmosphere great, appetizers very good, main dishes fair.
Six in attendance, no one was particularly thrilled. It will be awhile until we go again.
We walked in last night for dinner, totally forgot to make reservations. We were a party of 4 and the 2 hostesses told us it would be an 1 hr 30 min wait. It was 8:30. Went on open table and saw there was a slot for 9pm, so I reserved it and told them and waited til they sat us at 9:05. How hard would it have been to tell us to try a booking site? Rather than lose potential customers by giving a far out opening discouraging us to eat here. Around 9:30, I looked around the restaurant, there were at least 5 or more open tables available. So much for that 1:30 wait.. these employees are helping this business lose business, setting a bit of a snobby vibe.
Drinks were amazing, food was amazing. Service was amazing, hostesses sucked. Thought I’d share.
Fantastic food. Generous portions and excellent beverages.
Excellent vegan food and exceptional service!!
Excellent food, drink, and service. Patio is lovely in all weather.
My husband and I were celebrating his 45th birthday. We waited at the bar and we were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. After being seated we waited another 10 minutes before our waiter arrived. The chopped salad we ordered was spectacular however the rest of the meal was just okay.
I was really looking forward to celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. Unfortunately we both left highly disappointed that our fine dining experience was not worth the money spent. The best thing about the night was the horchatas. We spent $80 on beans and salsa. There are so many great and highly competitive vegan Mexican establishments with much better flavors and overall quality of food. The ambience is beautiful, I just wish the food could complete the experience.
Excellent meal! Our entire family loved it. Was our first visit and we will be back!
Enjoyed meals in the past but it was a chilly afternoon and so we sat inside. The doors to the patio blowing cold air on us immediately so I asked if they would kindly close the doors. Our waitress refused. Did not offer to relocate us. But did give me a gross smelling dirty blanket. We gobbles the food down as quickly as possible, freezing, without tasting it and left. Ghastly experience. Unkind waiting staff should be let go so they can find a job they like.
Never disappoints! Promptly seated, quickly served drinks, server was perfect, quality of food was delicious, & their dessert was mouth watering! Also, this was a small birthday celebration and the server over heard it was an early birthday dinner and came back with a lit candle when the dessert was brought out. No one from my table left so I know it was not mentioned to him!
Came here after a show at the Pantages for a late lunch / early dinner on a Sunday. Sat on the patio which was spacious, very comfortable and heated as soon as we needed it. Server was very attentive and took answered our questions graciously. We ordered the tasting menu which was a little bit of everything and delicious (portions very generous). Didn't love every item but glad we ordered it as now we know exactly what we want when we come back. Overall a very very enjoyable dinner out.
I may have to fly back to Wet Hollywood just to eat here again........outstanding
I took my daughter and her college friends out for brunch Sunday afternoon. I flew in from the East Coast. This is a favorite spot for us It was outstanding! We sat outside and the afternoon was perfect! Thank you!!
Our waiter basically ignored us, it was hard to get his attention to order, to add stuff, get drinks and pay the bill. When we finally got the bill, HE ADDED 4 DRINKS THAT WE HAD NEVER ORDERED!! We had to wait almost an extra 45 minutes to get that fixed, he said "oops, we mustve added stuff from another table". Honestly, for the amount it cost us, the service should have been way better.
Awesome it’s a Must go. Great food and service
Great food, great drinks, great place for vegans/vegetarians, date night, special occasion, or to grab drinks with friends or colleagues. It is very loud, however, and the seating is very cramped.
Very nice spot for our group birthday. Was happy we could have our pups in the patio area. Lots of space, didn’t feel crowded, even though they were busy.
Service was great! Had good suggestions and the food was delicious, had the: crab cakes, tacos al pastor, and pineapple upside down cake. The mexican hot chocolate was so good on a cold night!
First off the place is soo nice, and Danny our server was awesome. Super attentive made great recommendations and made sure we always had a drink. After all we were there to celebrate her birthday. We are not 100% vegan but trying make the transition and this place sure proved Vegan dishes are just as delicious if not better. Thank you or should I say Gracias Madre.
Amazing ambience, food, drinks, and service. Great location with beautiful decor. Loved the menu! Would recommend everything there!
Pues el ambiente está bien pero creo que yo como mexicano el tipo de comida no me gusto tanto en su totalidad no puedo decir que no hay buen ambiente y no está rico pero en mi opinión creo que le falta más sazón mexicano y dejar un poco lo elegante del platillo a algo más tradicional en una comida mexicana, es mi opinión del 1 al 10 yo pondría un 5 ni bien y ni mal algo normal pero no exelente 😀
Loved everything!! I highly suggest to give this place a try. Only downside was parking but we got lucky and found one on the street.
The food and service was exceptional!
Brunch at Gracias Madre was a destination due to the plantain French toast — now they no longer serve that and their French toast replacement is just “meh”. — half the flavor and mushy They’ve added a Chia pancake that is densely packed and has the consistency of something that might be healthy and not necessarily your most delicious option. The plantain French toast was perfect — balance, consistency, sweet with a distinct but subtle sourdough brioche. The addition of plantain was a unique offering nobody else had. Oh, and if you loved their biscuits and gravy… Those are gone too.
Lovely places specially that celebrities are often seen down there, amazing food and service.
Very good experience. I really liked that they didn't use "fake meat" substitutes. Standouts included the "crab cakes," mushroom fajitas and the spicy margarita. Will definitely be back.
Great crowd. $18 for two disappointing tacos alone on a plate seems overpriced.
I had a wonderful meal
Unfortunately we felt very rushed by our server. Many servers rushed to remove our plates nearly as soon as we were done. A very Hectic dining experience
Stunning location very detailed with a really nice outdoor area, fireplace and olive trees.Service is nice, fast and attentive.Food for me it was just fine.There are a lot of options to drink with a good selection of tequila.The menu is kind of pricy but vegan it means more work and more quality then it’s fine.There is a preset menu at 45$ that is perfect for who like me had no idea about the food it’s a lot of food.
Make a special trip before catching our flight - so tasty!
Our service was horrible. Our food was delivered as we were still waiting for our drinks. When I summoned the waiter, he apologized and although jittery, seemed sincerely embarrassed.
It went downhill from there - didn’t like the drink - the one I wanted - they had run out of - and - in the end I ordered something I didn’t like but kept.
I love this place - I hope the next time I go, my time is a big 180 from what it was.
Who allows a dog inside a restaurant that has outdoor seating available?!!!! What a ridiculous policy! For those of us who are allergic to animals it makes for a wholly unnecessary issue when the meal and service were wonderful.
I would STRONGLY recommend you reconsider this policy and keep pets outside.
Wonderful plant based food
Great spot. I loved it.
Good times but the bartender def didn’t serve us at the end once we were there for an hour, even thought we spent hundreds of dollars
