It was such a nice luncheon for my daughters 24th birthday. I loved how you ordered the food based on the menu selection.

Don’t come here if you want to have a nice anniversary dinner. Don’t come here if you’re looking for good portion size for the money you spend... here you’ll spend a lot of money for a very small portion. Pretty much a joke if you ask me. We have had a lots of problems the last couple times We’ve been here that we’re now over it.

We mostly love the fact that Gratitude is all-vegan and has an elevated-food experience. Great drinks, great service, beautiful presentation, lovely patio... we look forward to eating here every time. It's a win win.

Food didn’t taste good. Took forever to get refills on coffee or simple things like donuts and cinnamon rolls. Horrible service.

All of the servers were very polite but unfortunately either the restaurant was understaffed or else the norm is slow or non-existent service. Some of our food came out cold, including our coffee, and tasted like it was warmed up rather than fresh. Our waitress only came to the table twice the entire time we were there and we had to ask for the same thing several times before it was brought to us. Overall just disappointing.

This was my second visit to Gratitude and both were very good. We started with the buffalo roasted cauliflower. It was spicy with a light batter. I didn’t know cauliflower could taste so good. I had humble (Indian curry bowl). It was amazing. All of the different tastes together were delicious. I especially liked the tomato jam. A creative and amazing dish. I also had the cola old fashioned. My new favorite old fashioned. Loved the addition of cola syrup, slightly sweet and great flavor. My daughter had the mimosa flight with fresh orange and pineapple juice. We’ll definitely visit again. So nice to have delicious vegan food.

Service was horrible and feed was way overpriced. I asked for more vegetables and they charged me without telling me it was a surcharge. But mainly the service was horrible. This is definitely a place more for ambiance, trend, and vibe as opposed to actual good quality and bang for your buck.

Always eat here but this was the first time I had a dish that wasn’t good. Won’t order the mushroom fried chicken dish. Oil tasted old. Funky taste.

Everything tasted fresh as usual. We were able to take advantage of the meatless Monday half off one entree. We had the best buffalo cauliflower to start. My friend ordered the flatbread and I had the Bolognese

We came here for a very special occasion, and made that clear, and unfortunately received poor service rather than any extra special touches. Food came out late and not particularly hot, the server was inattentive - didn't clear plates or refill water in a timely manner. One of our meals wasn't even available on the menu and we weren't told of this until everyone else's food was already on the table. All of this at lunch time when the restaurant was dead -- they were not busy at all with other customers and yet still let important things fall through the cracks. We won't be back.

Loved the place and food was excellent. But the service was not at the level we expected. We had to wait a long time for the server, and we were missing utensils and plates and had to call the server to come to our table few times. Even getting the bill was time consuming.

It was amazing;however, the only reason I did not give it the 5 stars is because of one waiter. I ask for a sauce and at first he forgot which is fine, people forget, but when I asked him again he brought it back and placed it near my elbow and didn’t tell me anything. Thank goodness he wasn’t MY waiter. My waitress was super nice and attentive.

We were in California on business. My team and I decided to eat here THREE times bc it is so incredibly good. Fresh. Natural. Delicious. Unique. You can’t go wrong with any of the salads or appetizers. The antipasto is something to write home about (how do they do that without meat or cheese??) Definitely try the smoothies. My favorite is Grace. Also the cocktails are different and small enough for you to finish. Michael is an incredible waiter.

Didn’t know what to expect . My GF had been there before and was looking forward to a lunch .

Food was just OK . My order was not too tasty , and her order was missing a key ingredient or add on side she had asked for .

They realized the mistake and comp it .

Overall it was underwhelming experience ...

My GF was very disappointed as well ...

So I don’t think we will return .

Oh well .

I like the food. I wish they wouldn't use sugar and wheat flour. Why not sweeten with dates? Mainly I feel cafe Gratitude is over priced for the amount of food they serve.

Everything was very nice, our server patiently explained the selections. The food exceeded expectations. The cocktails were rather small for $14, but 2 were the special with lavender and we thought delicious, but my husband did not like his - a bourbon and ginger beer with lemon- a simple classic came to the table looking like a tropical drink, and he said didn’t taste as expected (ok but not great). We will return and further explore the menu.
