    This dining experience was not what I expected. I come here for lunch with no problem but this time for dinner I might not want to come back to dine in this location. The hostess was nice and sympathetic. The waiter got our full order but did not enter one of my dishes. I as a diner shouldn’t be asking what happened to my dish. The waiter should have made sure that all of our dishes came to the table. I did not leave a tip I just left the table. There was no service recovery from the waiter or the manager on duty.

    My father and I took my young son to Cafe Gratitude for my Mother’s Day Brunch just after relocating to the neighborhood. We walked over and sat outside late in the day - it was SO pleasant. The food and service was a perfect match. There was a nice flow of other local families, couples and other folks - the table was cozy - but the food and service was the highlight. EVERYTHING we ordered was delicious! My dad is not vegan and though I primarily feed my little boy a very wholesome organic pescatarian diet - we did not miss the animal protein at all! The flavors and textures were all spot on! AND the service was wonderful! They catered to my little guys needs and antics at every turn (leaving the table repeatedly, throwing a wooden platter on the floor, screaming and crying, and asking for extra sauces again and again lol…) and they just rolled with it! They were very kind and totally understanding of our needs and more than happy to provide A+ service regardless of the fact that we were ‘that’ table ;). I’ve always heard great things about this place and can happily say that now that I live in the neighborhood - and have enjoyed a really nice brunch there - we will definitely be back again and again in the very near future. I highly recommend this awesome arts dist establishment! Cheers! ‘I AM GRATEFUL’

    Bad service, very disappointed in a place where we used to come for several years. It became less professional through time… I had a reservation at 12:45pm for Mother’s Day. Anybody came for giving us the menu or even taking care of setting the table. The table stayed empty with no glasses, cutlery nothing. Once we got the menu, it was too late to order from the “breakfast brunch menu”, they said it is “only till 1pm. I was hoping the time of reservation was more important, mostly when clients are forgotten at their tables. The manager was there too and she did take care of it neither… Like I said, Cafe Gratitude was so lovely, nice before!!! I even knew the place when the staff asked if you knew the citations of the day. They did that before. They shared with you a sentence which makes you think during your meal. Anyway, like I said… it was before… I can wait before coming back.

    Two menu items we ordered were not available ... one was being phased out, and they didn’t have the main ingredient for another. There was ample time for the restaurant to advise us of these, but they chose to wait until we deliberated the menu and constructed our desired meal before letting us know. Everything else was great though!

    I hate to leave this review because I love what Cafe Gratitude stands for, but honestly tonight is the last time I’ll be dining here. I am mostly annoyed at myself for going yet again- tonight’s meal is my fourth experience in a row at this location that has been severely disappointing. I have several family members whose vegan or vegetarian so this is always my go to spot to take them out. Tonight we went for my mother’s birthday and also to take advantage of the DineLA specials. We ordered our food and nearly 40 minutes it hadn’t arrived nor had our waitress checked on us. Our first course was salad plus my toddler was with us and she was getting very fussy as she was hungry and that is an unreasonable amount of time. I got to from our table carrying my daughter to find the waitress to follow up. Shortly thereafter our food came... salads that came with mushroom bacon. I kid you not my salad had one sliver of mushroom. I asked for a manager to come over and he promised to bring more out plus another set of utensils and hot sauce. The mushrooms did come but the hot sauce and utensils never did so I found myself a set from another table. Our reservation was for 6:30 om and we were also told when we sat down that one of the dessert options for the evening was already sold out. I can only assume with a mostly empty dining room this was a result of bad planning and not of an unexpected amount of diners for the evening. I am truly kicking myself for wasting money on this spot. I have had better luck at the Larchmont location but honestly after tonight I won’t be visiting any of their locations. I really hope things turn around for them, they are an LA staple and I’m all for plant based dining options but wow, never again. Dine here with caution and don’t end up like me $100+ dollars later for a mediocre meal for 2 with simpterrible service.

    I am Glorious: The Blackened Tempeh Caesar Wrap is my favorite go to when dining here. Fresh, delicious and very satisfying! The side of fries served with it was also tasty and stayed crispy throughout my whole meal. The I am Glowing (pressed juice) was refreshing and cooling. I loved the mixture of carrot, ginger, turmeric, yogurt coconut and probiotics inside. I would get both of these items again. The service was also great! The servers were attentive and got me anything else I needed. Otherwise, they left me to enjoy my meal and I didn't feel rushed at all.

    My daughter is a vegetarian so I was pleased to find this place to take her while I was visiting LA (she's a student there). She doesn't usually have trouble finding things to eat and mainstream restaurants, but she was absolutely thrilled to have a large menu of selections to choose from. She had the pesto pasta, and I tasted it too, and it was excellent. The pasta was clearly home made. My daughter's description, "if macaroni and ravioli had a baby, this would be it." I had the enchiladas. Outstanding. I'm an omnivore, so i was really surprised to find such tasty and creative preparations. For desert we had the skillet cookie with "ice cream" on top. This place is vegan, so I don't know what the ice cream was. I thought it was delicious. IMO, the cookie was too much chocolate and too little cookie, but my daughter had the opposite reaction. So there. I'd recommend, and eat here again.

    Enjoyed eating vegan at Cafe Gratitude. The food was good and plenty of it. It did get quite crowded around 12:15pm which did slow down service and the noise level did get a bit high but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a true vegan. A word of caution, for people who have allergies and asthma better check to see what ingredients are being used.
