Gratitude - Newport Beach
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.
It was amazing! The food was so fresh and flavorful and my waiter and all the staff did everything to make me feel special celebrating my graduation lunch there. Truly nothing but gratitude for the experience I had dining here!
Our party enjoyed sitting in the alcove, where it there was less noise.
Great flavor combinations and high quality vegan food. Service was impeccable and hosts were attentive. Beautiful space. Positive, welcoming and comfortable vibes. I will be back!
Came here for my vegan dad and us non-vegans actually really enjoyed it! Cutest patio and great drinks as well!
We came with a group for a birthday celebration. As always, the food was excellent. This is a great restaurant to go to explore vegan food!
Excellent food. We enjoyed the appetizer, entree’s and the desserts. Very delicious!
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.
Overall very good. They delivered the wrong meal, but corrected it fairly quick. The menu has changed, but very good.
We will be back. One of our go to gluten free places.
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.
Outstanding our favorite restaurant. Next to Gracias Madre!!!
Always our favorite restaurant to eat at. Love the food the ambiance and the service.
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 had a delicious dinner all fresh well served and beautiful to the eye
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.
Service was just ok, but food was really good.
The food options are excellent, but would appreciate the nutritional value or fax about each of the meals in order to find a low-fat vegan meal.
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.
The menu was very creative and healthy. Everything we ordered was excellent! Ambiance was great, too. Highly recommend.
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.
Great service Lauren. Thank you!
Love this place, gorgeous patio, beautiful interior, positive staff, kind service. Food is fresh and creative and plant based. Everyone liked it in our party. We were celebrating 3 family birthdays at once and they gave us 3 free birthday desserts! We will be back.
Great food, friendly staff
Really enjoyed the dinner!
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 .
We love GRATITUDE. Finally a restaurant that created a beautiful spot in what has been several awkward ones over the years. FABULOUS drinks and food and service and ambience.
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.
Really good food if you are a vegan you are in heaven. Bolognese pasta was excellent, Dahl rice bowl was delish. Parking is difficult
My fiancé and I came to Gratitude for brunch after a tough workout. We were seated promptly and had our much needed water immediately. The server was attentive and gave great recommendations, allowed us space to chat and deliberate our options, and didn’t mind our last add ons. The food was great, my fiancé was so impressed with his pancakes that he wants to make Gratitude a more regular rotation in our dining out spots! I loved my plate which was a take on eggs benedict. We didn’t feel rushed or like we were waiting forever on our food. We’ll be back!
Beautiful outdoor seating, great ambiance, not too much traffic noise. Cocktails were good. Food came out enough time after receiving our drinks to be able to enjoy them. Food was delicious!
Never had tried the Benedict before. Loved the hollandaise! The bbq sauce was overkill and the bun or muffin on the bottom, however traditional, was unnecessary filler. Enjoyed my ayurvedic latte so much! GT’s Bloom flavor was nice. In general I prefer, JenEric Jun kombucha, and they’re a local OC kombucha company.
Amazing experience and deliciousness! Friendly people who are excited to have you there. ♡
The ambience of this place is amazing! We could spend happy time on Saturday.
So delicious. Really impressive food.
As a new vegetarian this was a great experience. Everything was delicious, the service impeccable and the ambiance new and fresh. Def going to be in our regular rotation. 🙏🏻💕🌈
