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.

I really enjoyed the food and the ambiance, but the waiter never checked up on us. There were times the silverware were taken with the plates and not replaced so one member of our party had to find an empty table and snatch a set of silverware. I generally give 20% or higher tip, but I was a little disappointed by the fact the lowest suggested was 20% and I felt guilty not giving 20 even though he was not a good server. The people bringing the food out and removing plates deserve at least 15 and he maybe 5. I live the food but probably will not return because I didn’t feel like a valued guest even though the bill was over 200.

I always love good time at Gracias Madre. It's where I take any visitors. They MUST try our gem. Since it is so popular, I hope we get another location so it's not so crowded. On this particular night everyone was extra friendly.

Fantastic, creative vegan food and cocktails. Try all of the cauliflower options. Super romantic with a chill upbeat vibe. Beautiful outdoor space with wood burning fireplace, and heat lamps. Gorgeous lighting- large live trees inside the space; seating respectfully built around it, so trees are a focal point as well.

We celebrated our kids’ birthdays here and had a great time. Excellent ambiance and service. The food was delicious. We had the bowl dos, tacos al pastor, jackfruit carnitas tacos, and Chile relleno. Unfortunately one in our party got sick from the Chile relleno and missed the rest of her weekend celebration. The restaurant staff and management was very compassionate and accommodating in the following days which we appreciated and they noted no other similar issues were reported that night. Good job handling an unfortunate situation. We will be back.

Have never been disappointed with the food at Gracias Madre! This past visit we went for a birthday celebration and I had made the reservation a little over a week in advance. Was frustrated that upon arrival a table was not ready and that when we were finally seated a friend had to wait for chair / setting to be added. Also, we were not near a heater and it was very chilly to be outside and when asked they said it would not be possible.

We were seated at 8:30 for our 7:45 reservation. They kept saying “10-15 minutes” If they had been honest, we would have gone elsewhere. Food was not as good as it used to be. Disappointing experience.

Buena comida! Yo no soy vegana y pedí las fajitas de champiñones (setas) no son champiñones regulares. Está buenísimo, todo cocinado con muy buen sabor y sazón. En un momento se me olvido que no había nada animal en la mesa. La verdad que si es un poco caro, guacamole y chips (buenísimas las chips) es $12.00 en cualquier otro lugar seguro pagas la mitad, pero en general muy rico todo. Buen ambiente, el servicio súper bueno y sirvieron súper rápido.

Overall great spot for brunch. Our reservations were for 10am, after we sat and got settled, we ordered coffee. Since the coffee was not ready yet, we waited about 15 minutes for it. Also. Might be a little thing...we all asked for oat milk and brown sugar yet we got just enough for one cup of coffee. There seemed to be some confusion around that since it took a few times to get it right with the bus staff. My take is service could be exceptional with a little more prep before opening.

With a reservation, it was still a 40 minute wait for a table. Was seated next to an open fire with smoke blowing everywhere and ash landing on me and my food. My date and I both smelled like a campfire even the next morning.

Went with high expectations...So great not to have to sort through a menu to choose vegan or at least vegetarian options. Unfortunately the food was bland and uninspired. Mexican/Latin food should be well spiced. Or at least spicy. Nothing was spicy. Even the salsas were not spicy hot.

I love dining on the patio which is a charming oasis. I took my 80-year old mom here for lunch and she loved it. We started with a drink - she got the Melon Collins which is watermelon juice, mezcal, aloe, blackberry grenadine, lime and soda, and I got the Rocket Man - lime, aquavit and mezcal. Both were good and refreshing.
The food was delicious! From the guacamole and chips, to our entrees of eggplant milanesa sandwich and enmoladas, which were stuffed tortillas with butternut squash and chorizo, topped with mole. Soooo good!!!! I cleaned my plate even though the servings were generous. And my mom went home with enough food for lunch the following day.
Our server, Kyle, was sweet, attentive and knowledgeable.
I look forward to coming back for more!

Have loved Gracias Madre ever since we first dines there couple yrs ago. The food is very consistent, drinks are delicious. The only complaint I have is some of the hostess staff, some not all. A few are pretty snooty, and not very welcoming. The wait staff however have always been great!

The location was very nice to celebrate my hubbies 55th bday. However the food was disapointing for the price.

They were out of two things that we order which we found to be strange.

Portions are super small.
