The ambience is lovely but it was so loud in the restaurant is was unpleasant.
The food was very good.
Our biggest issue though was the cost of the drinks. Tiny glasses for $16. That actually will keep us from coming back. A large drink for that price is fun, this, really made our entire group annoyed.

GRATITUDE USED TO BE MY FAVORITE VEGAN RESTAURANT, AS A VEGAN ITS HARD TO FIND FULL VEGAN RESTAURANTS AS NICE AS THIS ONE WITH A LOT OF OPTIONS, UNFORTUNATELY, GRATITUDE HAD CHANGED THEIR MENU AND DISCONTINUED ABOUT 70% OF THEIR CHOICES, THERE IS A VERY SMALL MENU - NOT MANY OPTIONS. I MISS THE OLD MENU! :(

The service was not good at all, the server was so rude and not welcoming. We all were very nice to him and he continued to be very unprofessional, he definitely does not believe in gratitude :(

I have been here twice and I absolutely love the food! It’s so healthy, large portions, and surprisingly filling! We have eaten lunch both times and were too full and skipped dinner! The cocktails are strong and I love that they use fresh ingredients. Highly recommend for brunch or lunch, I haven’t been here for dinner.

I just want to genuinely thank you guys for hosting my birthday yesterday. It was impeccable from the moment my party arrived to the second we left. Can’t remember my server’s name but he looked like a human Robin Hood (according to my party). He was amazing.

We’ve been to CGrat 50 times at least for breakfast and that’s great. First time for dinner. The serving of cauliflower was really small for an appetizer. Table next to us had the Brussels sprouts which I asked the waiter what was better( he said cauliflower so we got that) very disappointing. ( usually go to True Food Kitchen and get their cauliflower, wayyy better )
Then the bowl I got was pretty tasteless and small. The beans were just liquidy like soup, some kale or lettuce leaves and a few other things were thrown in the bowl. My husbands ravioli was not a meal for anyone whose hungry either. I’ve had $10 bowls at many other places which were much better.
I was hungry after and went to True Food Kitchen to get their squash pie for dessert. My husband had the cheesecake which was good.
Will be a while before I go back and try dinner there again. We keep telling friends that live five minutes away to try CG, but won’t with the lame dinner we had.

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.

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

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!

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.
