Our mission is to celebrate and serve the presence of the mother which resides above us, within our hearts, within the earth, and in all those who nurture us. We serve cuisine inspired by the kitchens of Mexico sourced from locally grown organic ingredients. Welcome to a seat at love’s table.

The idea of Gracias Madre was first conceived while visiting the families of our employees in Mexico. We wanted to do both; offer organic Mexican food to the communities we serve as well as honor the mothers who work tirelessly in the kitchens of Mexico and often live without their husbands and children while they work side by side with us in California. Inspired by some of the recipes of these families and the love of their mothers, Gracias Madre serves organic, farm fresh, locally sourced food, full of flavor and love with a menu spearheaded by Executive Chef Chandra Gilbert and agave-based cocktail program by Beverage Director Jason Eisner.

Have never been disappointed with the food at Gracias Madre! This past visit we went for a birthday celebration and I had made the reservation a little over a week in advance. Was frustrated that upon arrival a table was not ready and that when we were finally seated a friend had to wait for chair / setting to be added. Also, we were not near a heater and it was very chilly to be outside and when asked they said it would not be possible.

We were seated at 8:30 for our 7:45 reservation. They kept saying “10-15 minutes” If they had been honest, we would have gone elsewhere. Food was not as good as it used to be. Disappointing experience.

Buena comida! Yo no soy vegana y pedí las fajitas de champiñones (setas) no son champiñones regulares. Está buenísimo, todo cocinado con muy buen sabor y sazón. En un momento se me olvido que no había nada animal en la mesa. La verdad que si es un poco caro, guacamole y chips (buenísimas las chips) es $12.00 en cualquier otro lugar seguro pagas la mitad, pero en general muy rico todo. Buen ambiente, el servicio súper bueno y sirvieron súper rápido.

Overall great spot for brunch. Our reservations were for 10am, after we sat and got settled, we ordered coffee. Since the coffee was not ready yet, we waited about 15 minutes for it. Also. Might be a little thing...we all asked for oat milk and brown sugar yet we got just enough for one cup of coffee. There seemed to be some confusion around that since it took a few times to get it right with the bus staff. My take is service could be exceptional with a little more prep before opening.

With a reservation, it was still a 40 minute wait for a table. Was seated next to an open fire with smoke blowing everywhere and ash landing on me and my food. My date and I both smelled like a campfire even the next morning.

Went with high expectations...So great not to have to sort through a menu to choose vegan or at least vegetarian options. Unfortunately the food was bland and uninspired. Mexican/Latin food should be well spiced. Or at least spicy. Nothing was spicy. Even the salsas were not spicy hot.

I love dining on the patio which is a charming oasis. I took my 80-year old mom here for lunch and she loved it. We started with a drink - she got the Melon Collins which is watermelon juice, mezcal, aloe, blackberry grenadine, lime and soda, and I got the Rocket Man - lime, aquavit and mezcal. Both were good and refreshing.
The food was delicious! From the guacamole and chips, to our entrees of eggplant milanesa sandwich and enmoladas, which were stuffed tortillas with butternut squash and chorizo, topped with mole. Soooo good!!!! I cleaned my plate even though the servings were generous. And my mom went home with enough food for lunch the following day.
Our server, Kyle, was sweet, attentive and knowledgeable.
I look forward to coming back for more!

Have loved Gracias Madre ever since we first dines there couple yrs ago. The food is very consistent, drinks are delicious. The only complaint I have is some of the hostess staff, some not all. A few are pretty snooty, and not very welcoming. The wait staff however have always been great!

The location was very nice to celebrate my hubbies 55th bday. However the food was disapointing for the price.

They were out of two things that we order which we found to be strange.

Portions are super small.

My friend and I went for New Years Eve. We arrived 20 min early for our 10:30 reservation, checked in w the host, and went to the bar for a drink. At 10:40 we still hadn’t heard anything so I checked w the host and was told our table wasn’t ready still. We finally got seated around 11.
We had a few minutes at the table when our server informs us the kitchen is closing and we need to order... which we actually had and our server just forgot. We felt rushed.
We got our food around 11:45 and then it was time for the NYE countdown so we went to the main room with our champagne toast and stayed about 10 min. When we came back to the table all our food and drinks had been cleared away! I told our server and she said the busser told her the table was empty. We still had a half plate of nachos that we weren’t done eating. The manager took the nachos off the bill but we were left hungry and disappointed.

I would tell someone who is a Vegan to go there. I personally did not like the food hence I don't like beans I do like vegetarian food. Location great, inside is awesome, the service manager helped us out so was happy since hostess put us next to closet without outdoor warmers and like against a wall in back with loud speaker above us, she said,"we will give you a blanket" blah blah really it's New Years eve Miss! So Manager took care of us; or else would of been a nightmare. I preferred Pump Restraunt is better. :)

I have been here before a few times and came here for New Year’s Eve dinner with a friend! Happy they did not have a pre fixe menu for New Year’s Eve. The food and service were excellent like always. Great ambiance inside and out. We enjoyed our drinks and food. It was my friends first time here and she loved it. We will definitely be back.

Our reservation was at 7pm New years Eve. We were seated right away. The waiter & bus boy were friendly & attentive. The atmosphere was festive for being so early. We enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered. Being vegan Gracias Madre is our go to when we want to feel spoiled.
Thank you

Some of the most delicious vegan food I have ever eaten! Seasonings and presentation was superb as well. Waitress was knowledgeable and responsive. Noise level was a little high but this was due to the popularity of the restaurant and lively music.

We love this restaurant. And normally the service is great. Tonight our server changed after we ordered our drinks and although he seemed like a nice guy, our food arrived out of order (mains served before appetizer), water was not refilled, server never checked to see how our meals were. It was busy and it we were rushed.

Very disappointing visit this time. Not crowded at all and we still had to wait on our food, menu has changed without some of our favorites, service was sub-par. No gin for a mojito. Really?

Not sure we’ll be rushing back anytime soon.

We went to Gracias Madre for a birthday celebration. I always love the ambience in the patio even though it can be a bit loud. Gracias Madre has the best margaritas (to which we got a pitcher of)and we did the chefs menu. I wasn’t so impressed with this choice though, it felt like it had been sitting for a little bit too long. But it was still tasty, hence, the four stars. I would still recommend this restaurant for its quality service and beautiful surroundings.

Service was extremely slow. 3 out of 5 enjoyed their meals. Very disappointed in “reinvention” of Chile Relleno. Former recipe far superior and more closely resembles authentic Mexican recipe. Please change it back. Watermelon carpaccio was awful. I came specifically for the Chile relleno as there is no where else in LA to get a vegan version. I was so disappointed, not to mention shocked that it in no way resembled a true Chile relleno. What was with the mole sauce?!? A big fail in my book.
