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.

It was my first experience with a pure vegan menu. It was prompted by my grand-daughter who helped me through ingredients I'd never heard of. I had the "Humble" and found it very good and satisfying.

This is one of my favorite gluten-free spots. Service was a bit lacking this time, but ultimately the food shines through no matter the level of service.

Thought it would be more like the one in LA. Decor is a bit different and no quotes on the wall. Food is the same though!

Food took a very long time to arrive and my "Bonita" was a mix of warm and cold ingredients and I felt it may have been sitting for a bit. Flavors were good and selection was average. I would return again.

I was actually pretty excited to go - even though I'm not vegan anymore, I still love restaurants like this!
After being seated, I ordered a lemonade (which was very bitter, not sweet at all) and proceeded to wait almost 25 minutes before ordering my food. My server walked past me several times and made eye contact, but continued to serve other diners without approaching me once. The restaurant was not very busy and I was on my lunch break, so I got pretty frustrated and eventually flagged down a different server.
Once I got my food - it was satisfactory. The food was cooked well, but there were no standout flavors that made me want to come back for more food. I like my food to have a kick and felt like what I got (guac & chips, Mexican bowl) was a little bland.

2nd time coming here. The menu is entirely Vegan and the food is phenomenal. The cocktails are excellent and if you go and not try the mole enchiladas (Elated) or the burrito (Original), you are missing out.

Give their key lime pie a try, it's fantastic.

They put us as a no show and I didn’t get my 1,000 points for that time frame of booking. I’m not happy with the restaurant or with open table for that.

I was in Newport Beach for a work trip and Cafe Gratitude was on my TO VISIT list. And now that I’ve gone, I am recommending this location to everyone! I felt welcomed the very moment I stepped in. Customer service was excellent, the hosts were extremely friendly and our waitress was amazing. I cannot wait to go back!
Oh and the food was amazing of course!

Went with two friends and had a lovely time. Server was lovely and I particularly enjoyed my smoothie. My dish and tea weren’t to my taste but well-made and great ingredients nontheless. Remains one of my top 5 favorite spots.

very disappointed. was expecting so much more. drinks were disappointing. hard to say if there was alcohol in them. food.....we got the burger. it was crunchy beyond compare and the taste was very poor. the pizza special of the day..left half of it at the table. still not sure what the ingredients were, but just not right. the desert..a banana pie type of desert, was actually the best thing on the menu. sorry, just not my favorite place

There are very few healthy vegan restaurants in southern California so I appreciate this menu. I think some of the drinks and items are a little pricey but overall I think the food is good and I like the atmosphere. Some of the tables are a little too close together.

Came here while visiting family here...it’s really hard to travel on a vegan diet, but Gratitude made that easy. I had a hard time deciding what to order because I could eat everything on the menu and it all sounded delicious! I had the chilaquiles for brunch and they were amazing, but I sampled some of what everyone at the table got and it was all perfect. The drinks were great too.

Our server was extremely rude and snobby. He got our food and drink orders wrong. Also, he stole some of our change and didn’t admit to it! Food wasn’t that good and our waiter completely ruined our meal. Wouldn’t recommend!

If you know what to order, the food is delicious. The "Humble" Indian curry bowl is really good. Cocktails are creative and tasty but too expensive. The house margarita is addictive with spicy smoke salt on the rim, and the Sangria packs a punch. They don't skimp on alcohol. The desserts aren't very good.

Our server never checked up on us and since we were there for breakfast and wanted coffee refills, it was quite inconvenient. Food was okay -- but since the service was pretty bad, I won't be going back. Though -- all of the other servers were completely attentive to their tables, we just got stuck with one that couldn't care less.

I'm not vegan or even vegetarian so this was not my kinda place, came here with my vegan daughter who loved it, she had the indian curry bowl which was pretty tasty. I had the chefs tasting menu which was bland chips/guacamole, vegan enchiladas and coconut "cream" pie. I didn't care too much for any of it, again I'm not vegan so I'm probably not the best person to review this place.
