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.

A wonderful Father's Day celebration meal here today. We brought three non-vegans with us and they all loved the meal, which was delicious, creative, and visually appealing as usual.

This has been on his bucket list for a while and it did not disappoint. Great Father's Day treat and enough food for a second meal of leftovers. The tasting menu is most definitely the way to go!

Everything was perfect! The ambiance and aesthetics matched the food! I was the only vegan one in the group but everyone else truly enjoyed it as well. My father is usually very picky with food but he loved it! That to me says a lot.

Over rated. Dreadfully unfilling food / fruit salad was a joke – could get better and more abundant ingredients at the $.99 store

We loved this restaurant! My wife and I are vegetarians and we came with a friend who eats meat. We all thought our food was fantastic. And it has a lovely garden. Highly recommended

I love meat. So I was not particularly optimistic about going out for vegan Mexican food. But wow, was I pleasantly surprised. We did the 4-course meal for $40. The food was interesting and tasted excellent. Will definitely be going back. My only complaint is that the a la carte menu and drink menu is a bit steep.

The food was good as was the portion size but a bit overpriced for what we had. $100 for lunch with tip for 2 people. No alcohol.$12 for a basket of chips with guacamole. Really?

Had a great experience. Reserved a table for 4 at 6:15 on a Monday, when we arrived there was plenty of tables but by the time we'd finished it was a full house with a wait. Everything is organic, vegan, and locally grown. Which also means the menu changes with the seasons. I love the atmosphere as well, very relaxing and inviting. Service was attentive and engaged. Will always recommend.

We tried the chefs menu. The food didnt taste that much and the portions were way too big. If you live in the city you can bring the leftovers home but we had to leave half of the food on the plates. Besides of that the service was a bit slow and it took forever to get our drinks.

I always walk away with mixed feelings about this place: food is good but not great, service is good but not great, pricing is pretty high for what you get but on par with the neighborhood. A family member who is vegan really likes it, which is why we go. The patio is very nice, especially late in the afternoon. Overall, not a bad choice.

Nothing special, my drink was $18 and very watered down. The vegan options are abundant in the LA area, I wouldn't go here again, the portions were good but flavorless. The starter of cauliflower was very good, actually all of the starters my friends ordered were really good too! But the entrees are meh....my tamal was plain even with mole sauce. Tried the chimichanga and a bowl, both tasted the same to me. This place was very hyped up, I was excited to eat here but it honestly disappointed me. The place is petty and in a good location, maybe that's why it's in with the new vegans.

The hosts were obnoxious and condescending. We were made to wait for an extra hour and 15 minutes because we added one more person to the reservation party. They ultimately sat us at a table for 5 that they had been holding for another party that was due to arrive an hour later. There was another nearby table open the whole time we at dinner. Their inexperience and lack of service could’ve ruined the night, but the food was good. Front of house left a lot to be desired for a nice dining experience.
