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.

I love to bring friends to Gracias Madre for their first experience. Its such a beautiful outdoor setting and the food gets rave reviews, no matter their diet preferences. Highly recommend to all.

We were sat right away on a busy Saturday night for our reservation, they would even have sat an incomplete party!
Food, service was great.
I do not think we should have been charged for the birthday dessert they brought.
It was nice- but we didn’t choose it or were told that there would be a charge.
Finally, why give only 20 and 25% tip math suggestions?
I generally tip well, rarely less then 20% but found it obnoxious to give a 25% tip calculation.

This was our third visit to Gracias Madre and they never fail to deliver. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and the food is always amazing. Even if you don’t adhere to a plant-based diet you will love the creative menu. It’s usually a bit noisy inside the restaurant so I recommend sitting outside on their large, gorgeous patio. If you have a chance, pay a visit to Gracias Madre, you won’t be sorry.

Always great! The Bowl Uno is my fave. You’ll enjoy even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian.

Be prepared to pay $12 to valet. The food was good, my drink order never came. The menu has way too many options in myopinion and I did pick a margarita but they never brought it. Underwhelmed for the $70 bill with no cocktails.

A little overpriced. I ordered the $15 Pozole, and I feel a $5 pozole from a smaller, authentic restaurant would have been better.
My sister ordered a bowl and most of it was lettuce as a filler with about 2 pieces of meat.
Overall I would give it another chance, but would not order the same meals

This place is still one of my favorite vegan restaurants in LA. I really love the spicy margaritas, as well as the nopales (cactus) dish they serve. My non-vegan friends loved the place and the food. Very happy the quality of food has been maintained here.

We went primarily for our Sister. She is vegetarian and is always so accommodating to others when she goes out to eat with them. Meaning she doesn’t let what she doesn’t eat get in the way of spending time with friends and family. We wanted to go some place that she didn’t have to worry about what was in the food and she could enjoy everything. Well low and behold we did as well. The food is fabulous and full of flavors. We enjoyed everything!

This was our 2nd trip to Gracias Madre, and there will be more in the future! Delicious food & friendly service, but a little on the loud side when seated close to the bar. Overall, great experience and great restaurant.

Superb vegan food! You don't have to be Vegan to enjoy the fantastic flavors, but you might become one after eating here! The patio is gorgeous and the Happy Hour is not to be missed! An absolute gift to the City of Angels! Gracias!

The atmosphere is beautiful but the food is very bland. I know vegan food is usually pretty bland as there are no animal fats to give it flavor but this restaurant claims to be different. The corn and quacamole were decent but its hard to mess those up.

Great overall experience! Mushroom fajitas were excellent. Would like to see some additions/variety concerning sauces. Service was great. No need to worry about asking for water refills (small but huge).

Dinner on the patio on a Saturday night was lovely. Service was excellent and so was the food. I can't get over how good cashew "nacho cheese" can taste. Cauliflower and corn were delicious, salad was super fresh, ate to many chips and guac (as usual) and didn't even have room for an entrée as a result. Can't wait to come back and try more items... so many things sounded delicious!

Gracias Madre was great! It took 1 hr 30 min to get there but it was my birthday & i was ok with that. I ordered the jackfruit tacos & they were SO flavorful & to die for. My husband ordered the mushroom fajitas & didn’t like it. Said it looked like leeches😬 i had a snow cone drink cbd infused & another drink. They both were very strong & good. the ambiance was nice & sexy. I read on yelp to be dressed nice so i wore a nice classy dress but i felt over dressed as everyone was wearing very casual attire like jeans, tees, sandals etc. i would definitely go back. I just hate the LA traffic

Too expensive for just plant-based food. I guess with such high rent they need to charge more that a lot for the food and lemonade $12, crazy. I have been here at least 10 times and even had a party for my daughter. Every time, I wonder why I come back?

This last time we sat on the patio and an entire table of people went right outside to smoke and it went right in our face. We left early because the manager would not help. It's illegal to smoke in WEHO!

EHHH....

Love Mexican and part of any LA trip is trying another Mexican hotspot. I was told Gracias Madre is so good it won’t matter there is no meat. My friend and I love trying different restaurants and cuisine and at the end of the day it’s about quality of ingredients and taste and texture balance. We agreed the dishes that normally do not use meat were good, but nothing better than other good Mexican restaurant in presentation or taste - especially given the price range. I’d prefer an old school family owned place to this. But if you just want to grab a good margarita or beer in a beautiful room with attractive people then sure, go for it.
