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!
Excellent! But I was hoping they were going to acknowledge my friend’s birthday somehow before bringing the check.
Excellent Vegan cuisine and outstanding service.
Great food and service
Thanks it has a wonderful ambience .
This was our first time at Gratitude. What a pleasant experience for Father's Day lunch! The service was impeccable, the menus were inviting and the food and drink was phenomenal. We will be going back as our lifestyle revolves around health and fitness and this restaurant completely fits the bill.
I was sooo impressed with the mole enchiladas! I was initially wary of vegan enchiladas since I grew up on cheese enchiladas with red sauce. Gratitude's enchiladas were fantastic!!! The mole was rich and delicious and the filling was hearty but not overwhelming.
Our second time here. First time was for lunch which was fantastic. Today we went for breakfast but unfortunately, it wasn't such a great experience. My food was extremely disappointing. I had the cast iron chickpea quiche. It was dry, flavorless and tasteless. My husband had their quesadilla which tasted good, he enjoyed it. The service was great although sometimes slow and the atmosphere always nice. Will be back for lunch or dinner but not breakfast.
Great food and good service to start with but follow up service was slow.
Excellent food, and the menu always seems to delight with new exciting healthy vegan options!
Great organic vegan place
From the hostess greeting on, this place was amazing. Attentive professional service, abundant choices, delicious cuisine! It was my first visit at the suggestion of a friend, so I went there for my anniversary. I was so impressed with how scrumptious the food was, we came back the next night in order to try different menu items. A new favorite of mine for sure. Special thanks to Jennifer and Kelsey. You girls rock! Take care, Scott and Gena
Vegan with a hip atmosphere and vibe, Gratitude does a great job combining a contemporary upscale dining experience with healthy cuisine. The food was creative and very tasty and the service good. Some nice craft cocktails and yet the wine list is very limited and pricey and the beer selection rather ordinary.
It was great to indulge in a lovely dining experience without the guilt! We'll be back soon.
Thank you Gratitude for lowering the music and having music that you can have a conversation with. I have never been disappointed with their food, only the volume and type of music. At times, It's way too loud.
Excellent food and exceptional experience. Highly recommendable
Service was unusually terrible. Our waitress finally appeared after we sat at our table staring at our menus for at least 20 minutes. Our appetizer order never appeared. Our main courses took at least another 20minutes. Meanwhile other patrons were being served in a timely fashion. When she asked about how our entrees were we mentioned never getting our appetizer. She said she’d check on it and never came back with an explanation. Food was decent but we have never had such bad service and we have been there many times. Don’t think we will be returning.
Always a good one! Love the current menu. So many amazing items!
Excellent warm service. We are not vegan or vegetarian but the food was amazing and so tasty! The decor and ambiance is refreshing! Thank you Gratitude Cafe for an amazing experience!
Cafe Gratitude - Newport is hit or miss with service. I have found this frustrating. That being said, we had a lovely bus guy deliver a couple of our items. However, this is the third time we have had an inattentive and what seemed to be 'moody' server.
The food is lovely, however, there is huge opportunity with service.
Great as always!
Ordering style is a bit much, (I'd like the bolognese, oh you mean YOU ARE BOUNTIFUL?) and the food was good but not something I'd be rushing to return to.
Exceptional food and experience!
I love the relaxed feel of this place. The outdoor seating and how conscious the food is. It was amazing and would love to come daily. Macrobiotic bowl is terrific and basically everything it all has intention put in to it. So terrific!!
Not what Gratitude used to be. Major let down. Would not recommend
Nice atmosphere. Great food. Had the kale salad and lentle soup. Both were very good. My entre was the pasta with "meat" sauce. Delicious!
As always the best service and excellent food. It’s not just for vegans / vegetarians. Well worth the drive to OC.
Early Mother’s Day Dinner. Food service came often. Very accommodating. Food very impressive. Be back again with more eople.
This is a great place for a date, especially for those who happen to be committed to a Vegan lifestyle!
Fantastic experience, food was delicious and the service was attentive yet not interruptive during our meal and conversation.
I absolutely love how everything there is 100% organic and vegan!! I also love how all the to go stuff (boxes, bowls, cups, silverware, etc.) are completely compostable! The food there is amazing too! I had the ‘free’ (the beer battered young coconut), the ‘committed’ (the pulled mushroom sandwich), the ‘giving’ (a flatbread of the chefs choice) and the ‘kind’ (the crispy chocolate bar). They were all really good! I also had the ‘heavenly’ (a salted caramel shake) which was really good except that half way though, if not sooner, it got really rich and heavy. Overall I love this restaurant and I very highly suggest that you go there!
Jonathan our waiter was exceptional and made our night with his kindness and ability as a server! He is the best!
The food was amazing.
As always, we and our guest had a heavenly luncheon. The staff reserved my favorite table for me. Our waiter was attentive. The Sharing Nachos are perfect for three diners. I shared the yummy SF Mission Burrito. Our guest enjoyed the Whole Macrobiotic Bowl. The Hibiscus tea is soothing.
