Good Vegetarian Options
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 Mario Roberto Orellana and agave-based cocktail program by Beverage Director Maxwell Reis.

Absolutely delicious and fantastic! One of the premier spots to eat in LA during the pandemic - mainly bc they're following all protocols and have a lovely patio to eat outside on! The food, the vibe and the gorgeous decorations makes this place a must visit!

Overall my wife and I had an amazing time. The food was delicious! I had the flautas and she had a burrito mojado. We’re not vegan but you couldn’t taste the difference! If I could eat this everyday I could definitely be vegan.

My friend Halima and I were having a friend date tonight at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood. The food, environment, and staff was clean, professional, fun, and exquisite!!! Hector our server was amazing and with the help of Sam ,one of the hostess who helped us, and the rest of the staff, if they could forgive me forgetting their names at the moment, did an amazing job and made us feel like we were dinning in at home with friends/family. And of course, our deepest compliments to the chef whose menu and flavors were divine. Gracias, Madre!!!

We loved the food and drinks and the outside patio was very nice. Only thing that bothered us was that they charged for chips and salsa, and then don't give refills on the chips at least... Also the pico de gallo side was very small portion.

While the patio was spectacular, the food was very disappointing, with tiny portions lacking in flavor. We are glad we tried it and the concept is great, but we won’t go back.

My friend and I stood waiting while the hostess sat other people who came in after we had been checked in. We were standing around so long the assistant manager had to come over and ask the hostess what we were doing standing around! When I asked the assistant manager what was taking so long to seat us he said that a table had to be cleaned but that was a lie because we watched others being seated and noticed that no tables needed cleaning at that time. The seating policy needs to be improved or changed by the owners if in fact, they practice fairness to all races, genders, and others!

Does this place even need a review? Everyone who even walks past it can tell it’s special. Even during closed indoor dining this place still is amazing. The relaxed, but energetic ambiance, the top notch service, and the ingenious menu all combine to make every meal here meaningful. Hands down my top 5 fav in LA. <3

Great service and food. They changed their menu due to a new chef and there were a few items we were disappointed to see were no longer on the menu. Otherwise, great dinner!

My husband and I are both vegan and came here for the first time for a birthday brunch. It was absolutely delicious, but the best part came from my parents and his mom--all non-vegans--loving their dishes as well. The cocktails were fantastic and the brunch menu was superb. Service was fast and friendly. All 5 of us left and immediately planned a day when we could all come back. Highly, highly recommended (especially the guacamole, and Madre Maria cocktail. Wow!)

My server was great, loved him he was personable and engaging. Gave us recommendations and suggestions, which all worked out.

However, the hostess was no engaging, was chatting with some and let a line build up of maybe 6 to 8 couples. Once taken to our table there was no communication, no sorry for the wait. They when we left the hostess never said good bye, thank you for coming., a smile, a wave. The hostess sets the stage for the place and the energy, she could have done more.

I really enjoyed this restaurant and would happily return. I had the portobello tacos and the cauliflower appetizer. There is an extensive tequila menu if you are interested and some interesting cocktails. Our server was excellent. We were seated on the patio which was very pleasant and less noisy than inside. It was a cool night but they have heaters. You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy this restaurant. You won’t miss the meat!

This is still one of my favorite places to eat in Los Angeles. The flavor profiles of each dish are so good. My favorites are always the crab cakes and any bowls on the menu. Dessert was a coconut chocolate ice cream that was perfect.

The service is trash. I’ve tried. I’ve been patient. I’ve eaten 6-8 times here in the last couple of months. I figured it would get better.

I literally can never go back. The ambiance is beautiful. The staff is just so rude.
