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.

The jackfruit tacos were really good. Everything else was just okay. I expected more from the street corn and I don't why they call their cucumber salad a cucumber salad. It was far from it as I only found 4 pieces of cucumber and very few black means. It was a bunch of arugula. The dressing; however, was spot on. The tamal was subpar. The cocktails are pretty decent. The crowd is incredibly annoying.

Your category on noise level is worthless. Where is, “too loud”. You know you can have a restaurant where the noise level is too loud. Not energetic. If you are going to have a survey at least make it honest.

This is not my first time at Gracias Madre, so there is something to be said for the fact that we keep coming back here. We enjoy taking guests/visitors here because it is so unique–Mexican food that is entirely vegan is quite a rare find even in LA, let alone outside of it.
The service was very pleasant and prompt and our guests really enjoyed their experience and the food. Will be back soon.

Our waiter took really long to check on us each time. We wanted another round of drinks and to add on another dish. It ended up ruining the experience and we didn’t order as much as we would have.

I'm vegan, but love taking non-vegan friends to Gracias Madre to see their amazement at how great vegan food can be. But even if it weren't for that, it's just a great restaurant with great ambiance!

Drinks were delicious. I had the purisita with Mezcal. It refreshing and honest - with only pure and natural ingredients it wasn’t overly sweet and had a lightness appropriate for summer.
I had the bowl, the Uno and it was hearty, savory, and fresh.
I will say $12 for a very simple guacamole is very overpriced but you can’t not have guacamole as a starter!

I went with a business friend and even though we were sat between two tables of people we were able to have a fine connection and discuss what was on our agendas over dinner. Food was great, service was excellent and I would go there again in a heartbeat.

The dinner was good but we didn’t do a good enough job ordering so there was too much potatoes and avocados. Next time we are ordering the mushroom fajitas! They come out smelling so delicious!

The patio was louder than I remembered.

Food was fresh and unique. Service was good, but host asked us to “give us a minute” a bit snippily when we politely told her we had made a reservation. We shrugged it off and had a delicious and leisurely dinner on the patio. It’s a bit pricey and a tad snooty but overall we always have a great meal and a fun time when we eat here.

Fortunately vegan food gets better by the week it seems in LA County. Gracias Madre is consistently good. The outdoor seating is lovely, energetic, the perfect place for early evening dining. Portions are a bit small in relation to the prices. For example, guacamole can be gotten at a million other places at a better price with exactly the same or even better results. But it's a masterful combination of flavors for different vegan foods that makes me patient with the small plate size. Get the cauliflower which is to die for.
