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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I forgot her name but the ‘break’ waiter we had while our wait staff was on a break was amazing. She was very friendly, helpful, and clearly loved the menu.

Had an 8pm reservation but wasn’t seated until 8:30. Another party of 2 who’d missed their reservation by over 15 minutes still got seated before us. The front of the house seemed unorganized.
After ordering drinks and an appetizer, it took a long time to get our order taken. And later over 20 minutes went by between us asking for our second round of drinks and actually receiving them.

The service was very slow. I expressed my concern with the waiter early on and nothing improved. Our drinks sat at the bar for 10 minutes before reaching our table. It took 15 minutes to get salsa for our chips . The salsa provided was not freshly made but just a common side they offer that is stocked for such request . The food lacks a gourmet touch and seems very cheap for the price paid.

Great spot for groups or solo - healthy & delicious Mexican inspired vegan food without an outrageous price, plus excellent service and a beautiful environment both indoor and out! Been here many times and will keep coming again. The menu does change now and then, so be sure to come back for your favs before its gone.

Brought a group with us this time and were seated outside. A great night, thanks to staff and server. Thanks for accommodating for an extra guest that you (nor we) had expected!

We were a party of 3 and were celebrating two birthdays at the table! Our waitress was fantastic (I wish I remembered her name - she was AMAZING) She quickly accommodated anything on the menu that came in 2's ...she recommended her favourites (and was not wrong) and was pleasant, funny and professional! Everything was more delicious than the last plate and dessert was the icing on the cake! DO NOT hesitate to make a reservation here. It will become your new favourite restaurant too!

Pretty disappointed in our experience. Food and drinks were amazing and the environment was very nice. The service however was definitely not up to par! Had a reservation for 8:15 and arrived right on time. Checked into the front and was told they could seat us immediately inside, we asked about outside and they said it will be a bit of a wait. We said inside was fine, however then another hostess came out and took over and told us to go wait at the bar. We went confused to the bar and waited for about another 15mins before being seated outside at an empty table that had been vacant since we arrived. Sat down and from there it was ok. You could definitely tell the waiter was a little overwhelmed with the amount of tables but doing his best. The final disappointment was the fact that we went here to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. When making the reservation I was prompted to list if it was a special occasion in which I said it was my girlfriends birthday. I figured with stating this the restaurant would accommodate without me having to make a big statement as I saw other tables getting their birthday celebration after they were finished eating. We however had no acknowledgement of her birthday and were just given the check as soon as we finished eating. Overall loved the food but service definitely put a damper on the night.
