Absolutely love this restaurant. Every dish has so much flavor.
This was my second visit to Café Gratitude. Very reliable and delicious food. I love that they’re vegan and gluten-free options taste amazing. The service was excellent and the ambience very pleasant.
Great for GF, DF... and tree nut free!!!! They have a nut free menu🙌
Cute patio... super friendly and patient server as we acclimated to the menu. The only bummer was our coffee- a mocha and latte were warmish instead of hot and we were outside on the patio on a chilly day. We Would go back... for sure- kids loved it too!!! And they have a to go service that looks user friendly... sweet treat options that are so rarely vegan and GF!!! Also their signature cocktails look amazing.
Took my Grandmother for a birthday brunch. It was her first time dining at a vegan restaurant and she loved it. I thought everything was delicious. Will come again!
I am so very disappointed with Gratitude. Service???What service. We ordered salads for lunch which took over an hour to get even after we asked our server several times about our order. My daughter's salad was not good at all and mine was very average. How bad was the experience?? The manager gave us a discont on our bill. A nice gesture, however I would have rather have paid full price for a great lunch with great service.
Pass on Gratitude
Everything was great, food, atmosphere, service, until my coffee came. Added the almond milk into my coffee the temp dropped to lukewarm.
Was ok with my food but my sweet potato was not cooked all the way. But their broccoli soup was amazing 😉
If you like eating vegan food this is the place! Great service and good food. Friendly staff. Music was too loud.
Gratitude used to have a nice menu. Now, they have tried to become more "UP SCALE" and have breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus.
We were there at noon on a Saturday and couldn't order from the "LUNCH" menu. Lunch at this place on Saturday and Sunday starts at, 4:00 PM... and we were there at noon... hmmm...
There's been a radical transformation at this facility and it's not for the better!
I don't suspect I'll be returning. Our server was less than efficient. I had the definite perception they were more interested in the tip than the service they provided.
For being a "VEGAN" place, they sure seem to want to peddle a lot of alcohol.
I won't be returning and this was a place we used to frequent regularly.
So long Gratitude!
My first time here. Food and service were great. Nice to have valet parking. I will return.
The ambiance was great, and the service was good. It would have been nice if they give you plates for the appetizer without asking for it but other than that, it was a great experience eating vegan food.
Great vegan options, lovely ambiance, and great service
New dinner menu. The manager Ryan took great care of us. Best service
We've been there more n' once... we'll be going back and we've told others about Gratitude
Fantastic as usual. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. This place is easily my favorite restaurant
I've been with a friend of mine here a few times... it's always good and the staff is always accommodating. So far to date, the server has always ask if there's any food allergies.
Would I go back, you bet..
Been here several times. Surprisingly good.
A bit pricy, but hey, it is Nudeport Beach after all 🙄
Yummm Taco Tuesday
Lily our waitress is fabulous.... thank you for the wonderful service and recommendations on all of our meals!
Great food and service. Very accommodating and will slyer if you are on a special diet and have cancer. Gratitude truly cares about its customers! I’m always pleased with my experience at Gratitude! Thank you!
We initially found Gratitude because we are in the throws of changing our previous lifestyle of consuming literally anything placed in front of us to a very healthy diet with the hopes of fighting cancer. The menu is creative and fun. Reading the ingredients on the menu for the dish makes one wonder what it's going to taste like when you eat it. Thus far, (one of us is experimental and the other tests the waters by testing my plate to determine if they'd order it in the future or if they will eat their stand-by favorite.) Collectively, we've tried all the drinks and found all but one surprisingly palatable. They offer inside and outside tables. The inside tables are surrounded with very hard surfaces which increases the decibel level as other diners arrive. We've never eaten outside so I can't review that area. If you're seeking a private, quiet, place where you can talk softly across the table, dining inside may not be the best choice, but outside may be better. The food is very good. As for price, well, it's in Newport Beach after all, so it's more upscale than it might otherwise be. Our usual fair (for 2) is about $70-$80. The servers, for the most part seem to really know the menu and are capable of describing the dishes very well. If you have food allergies or simply foods you prefer to avoid for any reason, Gratitude will work to accommodate you. Would I recommend this to anyone yes. I might hesitate to suggest this to a hard core carnivore whom insists on consuming some form of animal tissue and or dairy products at nearly every meal without cautioning them I've never found anything with dairy or animal products (there may be something from the bar but I don't know.) We've enjoyed the food at Gratitude several times since we've discovered the place and will certainly return.
Cafe Gratitude is a beautiful restaurant. I feel good eating here. Menu options are stellar and delicious. Service is outstanding.
Not impressed. The pizza for kids should still look like pizza. So bad I didn’t even want to try something else for my kids. Also, my husband eats everything and didn’t want it nor like it once he tried it. I got the tempeh wrap which was the best thing on the menu. I won’t be back
I brought my wife out and lucked up on a quiet easy night. We got a tucked away booth in the corner, which I appreciated and our charming, bearded server was knowledgeable and patient. He entertained our shenanigans and convinced me to try the best strawberry shortcake desert I’ve had in ages. Everything was delicious and prompt. Beautiful night.
Love Gratitude. The service was excellent. Food is always perfect. Can’t wait to go back.
Gratitude provides a comfortable setting for any type of occasion. The food has integrity and great taste, the service is on point, efficient, very knowledgeable of the menu (very helpful too with young ones) and the atmosphere at this particular location, where not on the water with a view, is stylish, and lends itself to being a go to spot for a very pleasant dining experience overall. I have recommended it to all of my "foodie" friends, especially those who are eco/food to table supportive. I think they could add a few more tapas like items to the menu and really knock it out of the park.
Amazing food every time!! The menu is interesting and has something for everyone. Besides being a vegan restaurant my favorite thing about Cafe Gratitude is that they have HEALTHY plant based options so I don’t feel guilty about splurging. They also have things like nachos if your feeling naughty or have wiggle room in your pants ;0)
I am not vegan, but I have other dietary restrictions (no gluten, no dairy). The servers are knowledgeable about the menu items and are flexible in working with you to modify the food however you need. The food is so fresh, and it tastes delicious. Many of our friends enjoy this restaurant as well who are not vegan. Nearly everything on the menu is gluten free, but the few items on the menu that have gluten are noted accordingly. The ambiance is nice, especially on the patio. The only downfall is the view from the patio, which is a parking lot. However, the restaurant does a nice job of distracting from that.
The buffalo cauliflower is just steamed cauliflower with hot sauce dripped on it ... very uninspired and disappointing. The double burger was bland. The only tasty item I had was the fries. i
We will be at Cafe Gratitude again! The food was yummy! I am Sharing (Nachos) were superb! This was such a different place for us to go for a date and for our vegan cuisine. Good happy hour selection too.
Buffalo cauliflower, nachos, and Mediterranean plate are delish! Drinks are great too - full bar!
I love this restaurant! I live on Maui and when I am in OC I always make it a point to enjoy a meal here! The food is fabulous and the staff is really fun! Thank you Gratitude for making another trip to the mainland from Hawaii a memorable one!
Everything was great except for the dogs in the dining area. My husband is allergic and ended up with major symptoms from our time there.
Food was cold but plate was hot. So it had been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile. Ordered hot tea and they never refilled my hot water
We had one plate that had hair, more than one, in the food.
Celebrating a birthday. It was a nice night. They have the birthday boy a free dessert of choice!
Excellent! So glad we went wish there was Gratutude closer to us in NorCal!
I always appreciate a fully plant-based menu. It's welcoming to be able to order anything on the menu and know it is vegan. The food was delicious, original and satisfying, as well as pleasing to the eye. Fun outdoor atmosphere and great waitstaff. Delicious drink.
Cafe gratitude sets the standard for the future of restaurants in my opinion. Organic, plant based healthy menu that still tastes great. Space is really nice and service was great. Definitely will be back!
