Loved it! The hostesses were very sweet and service was solid.
An authentic Mexican restaurant that happens to be vegan. Delicious and filling. A large mescal and tequila menu. Highly recommend.
Amazing place to chat with friends or a first date. Delicious food and cocktails. Can’t wait to go back.
Valet parking was easy, the outside patio is great, it is clearly a popular place. We ordered a taste of many items and nothing was terrific. This was the 2nd time I’d eaten here. You definitely have to go in and NOT expect the flautas, for example, to actually taste like any flautas you've had before...Or the jackfruit carnitas tacos to actually be like any carnitas tacos you’ve loved before. Even if you go knowing all this, the food still wasn’t great in my opinion. I wanted to like it even a little, but I wouldn’t go back.
For a couple of years I’ve been looking forward to a meal at Gracias Madre. My friends decided now was the time. I made reservations for four, we arrived on time, we were seated, our drink orders were taken, and that was when the service quickly went down hill. Our food arrived quickly and was fresh and hot. The runners dumped the food on the table, never picking up the dirty dishes from the previous course. The waiter never came by to see if I wanted another drink (I would have), and when I tried to flag him down again I was told he was on a half-hour break. It would have been nice if he mentioned that. The reason for the gathering was to celebrate my birthday. Once the dessert course was upon us a runner delivered a candled scoop of delicious ice cream then, as is their style, they quickly ran from the table. No napkins, no spoons. I had to, once again, flag down our de facto server. Spoons were delivered. Our bill was delivered. Again, no one asked how the meal was or if we wanted another round of drinks.
My friends paid the bill, and I told them I wanted to speak to the manager. I spoke with a hostess who told me she’d get the manager for me. I waited at least 10 minutes and no one came. The hostess saw that I had yet to speak to the manager, so she went on another hike to get the manager. A nice woman named Yasmina (forgive the misspelling if that’s not correct) heard my story, sympathized with me, then told me the general manager would phone me the next day. It never happened.
As good as the food was, the service was disappointing to the point of we will will not be returning.
Beautiful place!! Yummy food!! Great service!
Have never had a bad experience there!
Had 2 small tacos that where delicious and an uninspired salad that was chopped up plain lettuce and beans. Cost over $30 was not a value but worth it to taste the uniqueness of the tacos. If my budget was $30 for lunch I would come back and try other unique entrees.
The food was amazing! Loved the crab cakes.. I could have just eaten four of those and been satisfied.. I will be back for happy hour!!
Hip & trendy vibe. Beautiful decor. Unique take on traditional Mexican dishes. Everything is vegan and organic.
Really nice ambience and in a nice area. The food is expensive and just okay. Most of the items we ordered were too sweet in my opinion.
Waiters are incredibly nice, food is incredibly delicious, Gracias Madre is incredibly awesome.
Hosts were very nice considering I was late 15 min
Waitress was brilliant
Amazing! I was skeptical at first because I’m not your usual vegan eater but food was delicious! Service was great as well and our server was quick and kind! Will be coming back!
I am not a vegan, but the food was really good with a diverse menu.
I think that the most interesting thing was their drink menu. They had a whole selection of "High Times" drinks, with cannabinoid (pot) in them. I guess this is the way L.A. is going. Be careful with arriving under the influence!
Reservation for 6, but table was set for 5 (and was already small). Changed waiters on us 4 times so the service was inconsistent at best. At least the food and drinks were good, but the service was so poor we'll avoid it as a business meal location in the future.
Stunning dishes and super sweet server!
Horrible salad with a definite attitude from Maitre d
The hostess insisted my reservation was for 2 adults only when it was for 3. She was so rude to me at check in and told me she “might have a table for us.” She sat is in the corner back near the kitchen. Otherwise, everything was great.
Host gave up our reservation after 15 mins. So we had to wait an hour to be seated after that. Otherwise great.
Disappointed. I don't like to complain, but I feel like it's important to provide feedback in order for establishments to maintain (or improve) their quality.
This place has been a favorite of mine since I moved here 3 years ago, but the food was very different this time. I brought my cousin who was here from the midwest and her food was drenched in oil. The Brussels sprouts looked like a huge soggy mess and her other dish just looked gross. She didn't complain, but I could tell she didn't like it because she barely ate any at all. I got the tres bowl, which I've had a few times in the past and LOVED before, but this time not only was it totally under seasoned, but the squash was soggy and dried out at the same time like it had been reheated several times, and there were carrots in it that seemed very much like a frozen vegetable mix that was thrown in. It was extremely gross. It tasted like a frozen dinner or like something that someone with no cooking experience threw together with a few cheap ingredients. I would've enjoyed my own food that I cook at home much, MUCH more.
I was embarrassed that I suggested this place to my cousin and made such a big deal about it. The only thing good was the wine. We didn't even get to enjoy the ambiance, because even though I requested a table outdoors we were sat inside up against the back wall. It was a very bad experience and I don't think I'll be coming back for a while. A big disappointment since this is where I usually bring my friends and family on special occasions. :(
Fantastic service and food! Wish there was a location in Atlanta!
Great food, cool audience and perfect service!
Hostess poor attitude ruined the entire experience for us all. As a group we were disgusted by her lack of problem solving and superior attitude, which is laughable, considering she’s a hostess.
Gracias Madre is always great. The food is creative and delicious, with great presentation, good size portions, and reasonable prices. The ambiance is nice, both outside and inside, but a little louder inside. The restaurant is a real happening place and great place for people watching. The service is wonderful. The food is all plant-based, which is perfect for my wife and I since we are both Vegan eaters. However, the food is just plain delicious, so the variety of food would appeal to both vegans and non-vegans. We plan to go back again and again. Sitting outside is such a wonderful setting.
Not being vegan, wasn’t sure if I would like it. The food was amazing great place to go if your hungry
As the portions are big. We sat in the garden area really pretty and not as noisy as inside.
Fantastic vegan cuisine, and an all around great vibe.
This was my first time here, recommended by a friend, and I loved it. Great open atmosphere, and very fast service!
I love this place! great food and great atmosphere!
Every thing was perfect!!LOVE THE CRAB CAKES!!!!! WILL BE BACK SOON!!
Fun fresh and exciting menu and ambiance
I so appreciate amazing vegan food! This is elevated, delicious and outstanding vegan food!
We wish that Gracias Madre would open in Australia! Love coming here when we visit LA, consistently great food and a wonderful atmosphere!
One of my favorite spots for brunch!
Fantastic as always! Their cocktails are amazing and strong, and the food is flavorful.
I’ve been waiting to dine at Gracias Madre and it all what I expected and more. Our server Daniel was amazing he knows the menu and all ingredients well the busboy was very nice to. I will definitely be going back soon.
My friend and I arrived at noon on a Tuesday and were seated in the patio. We had excellent service, the food was great, drinks delicious and the ambiance was nice. This was our first time and we are planning a return visit with more friends.
It was my 2nd and my friends 1st time coming here! The food was amazing and we stayed for dessert. The best part was our waiter, Josiah! He made it fun for us and we would love for him to be our waiter again 🙌
Yummy food. Of the 5 of us, we had one vegetarian & one with a severe dairy allergy so vegan meant everyone could enjoy the evening out. Everything was hearty & satisfying & not bland as vegan can sometimes be. Interesting choices & appealing but unpretentious presentation.
The waiter was very attentive & informative. One of us had a birthday coming up & either the waiter or the busser heard us - when dessert was delivered, birthday girl got an extra treat with a candle in it. Small thing but it made a big impression.
Definitely recommend this place. Try to sit outside -it’s lovely. Very LA.
Although the food was delicious, unfortunately we had gotten food poising. I’m not sure what could have happened but having this horrible food experience I’d be scared to come back and eat. Hopefully if I do decide to return this does not happen again.
