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)
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!
Great and healthy food, service is a little slow, yet the wait staff is very friendly and kind.
Nice atmosphere with great fresh Vegan food. Came here for breakfast and they have a good Vegan breakfast menu. Coffee is strong and delicious as well. Service was A+!
Made a reservation for 10am. Very fast easy sit down, service was excellent! Good amazing!
Food good but service was so poor. Hard to understand because they weren’t very busy. I had to flag my waiter down twice to get her attention. We sat 30 kind before she came by for initial drink order. Kinda disappointing.
Outdoor space is comfortable and the service was attentive. The food flavors did not appeal to our group and there was too much sauce on the benedict (and two flavors). Not many truly healthy options aside from the smoothies and juices.
I have been to Café Gratitude several times and it never disappoints. Great atmosphere, attentive servers, and absolutely delicious food. I highly recommend it.
My Mother in Law is recuperating at a nearby rehab center, and has recuperated enough to get out and enjoy the lovely early evening. She is Kosher, but that is harder to find restaurants than, Vegetarian, but we were lucky and found this lovely place. ( we are also from out of town). She had absolutely no worries about what was in the selections. All that and the selections were delicious! We were there at 5:00, and it wasn’t noisy, nor overly hot that day, so we really enjoyed our outing.
Had the raw lasagna this time around. Also had the Fresh House made pear sangria. Both were perfect for a hot day flavorful and cool
Not much of a vegetarian cuisine, cooked or raw tasteless vegetables with inflated prices.
L😍VE Cafe Gratitude!!!!! Always so fresh and innovative!!
If your in the Newport area and want clean ,healthy meals , make sure you stop here .5 stars !!!!
LOVE THE CREATIVITY THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO TRY NEW THINGS.
Great food experiments that work and especially good for GF guests. The Chicken and Waffles were magical and the Holy donut was rapture.
I’m generally a meat eater but this was a cool break from the norm. I had the “Evolved” Bibimbap bowl with oyster mushroom bulgogi. Very interesting flavor. Also had a side of the red lentil dal which was delicious.
They made up for the fact we had to wait with $30 worth of dessert. They were so apologetic. They care so much!
Fabulous! Great tasty food.
Everything was amazing. We were in California for a few weeks and kept coming back for more. Bring one to Canada!
What a find! The food was spectacular for a vegan! Very unique and delicious meals. We ordered two appetizers and 2 main dishes. They were incredible. We left stuffed and the plates were not clean...
The service was excellent. The ambiance was relaxed and tastefully done. The best was the fact they have 5 other restaurants. And one is in San Diego. I'm considering moving next store!
I had the kelp noodles with basil pesto and my friend had one of the bowls. The food was amazing. The best part about this restaurant is that I don't have to pick through the menu to find a meal. Anything you order from the cocktails to dessert is vegan. Thank you thank you thank you. Everything had great flavor and so fresh. I had a tumeric mule cocktail that was amazing. You have to like tumeric though because it was prominent.
Dessert was cherry cheesecake that was also delicious. Can't wait to go back
On a balmy summer evening, I took a friend to Gratitude for her birthday and we were able to sit outside on the patio for dinner. They brought us extra plates so we could share the special summer salad (with peaches and asparagus) and the SF Mission Burrito. Both dishes were truly scrumptious and so filling, even splitting them in half, that we couldn't quite polish off our plates, and we had no room for dessert. I would highly recommend both dishes.
Dessert is a small portion and pricy.
Macrobiotic bowl was nice.
Food is pretty good but also expensive. Ambiance is amazing. Not my 1st choice for vegan food but it gets a pass. Great cocktails and appetizers are tasty.
Amazing atmosphere, Awesome staff, Righteous food 🙏🏻🤙🏻
Good food - maybe great food (we'll never know) - served warm instead of hot. It a pet peeve of mine. This issue was compounded by slow, inattentive service. These folks are already on the bubble with a purely vegetarian menu, they can't afford not to kill it in every other dimension. It the execution, not the food, that's missing.
It was my mom’s birthday. Patio seating was great - inside it would have been cooler, but the noise level would have been intolerable. The food was, as always, delicious, and the service was excellent.
We visited Cafe Gratitude to celebrate a friend's 25th Birthday on Thursday for Lunch. Our group had a great time mostly because of our server Luke..pretty sure that was his name... I think (hopefully that's right)! A guy of many talents... was so kind to take photos of our group and help us with umbrella repositioning multiple times! Very friendly, engaged in banter with our group and was consistently checking on us throughout the two-plus hours we were at the cafe. He was simply AWESOME! The food itself was tasty but a little pricey for lunch. Overall, would recommend for the ambiance, service and organic plant-based menu!
