Used to really enjoy the food at Gracias Madre and have gone quite a few times. Went today for the first time since the new chef arrived. What a disappointment. New escabeche was very bitter, red salsa is now is essentially tomato sauce and has none of the zest of the older version and our two entrees were poorly executed and seasoned in an odd and heavy handed manner. Mentioned this to our wait person. No adjustment was made to the bill.
My sister was in town celebrating her birthday and we decided to try this restaurant out for champagne and dessert. It was the perfect spot to end the evening! The ambiance was incredible, the service was friendly and sincere, and the dessert was delicious!!! 5 Stars all around and I will definitely be back for dinner!
Always great drinks, food and service. The Paloma is amazing.
I prefer the old menu it had more spice. Food was ok I had to ask for sauce but they didn't have any so they offer slice jalapeños, drinks where ok, had a Oxacan old fashion nothing special they just added a tamale leaf, my friend had a Michelada, which half of the cup had ice.
Really great atmosphere for dining outdoors.
Great fresh food that is always consistent.
Food, drinks and service were on point! Taylor was our server and she was very kind, social and attentive. She was not pushy on the 90 minute time limit which was nice to not have to feel rushed. Will definitely be coming back soon
Food was delicious. Waiter was a little slow to bring out dishes and checked on the table infrequently. There was another waiter that serviced us and was much better but wasn’t assigned to our table. Overall, great space and food.
I always get my favorite drink from Gracias Madre called the Purista! It’s best described as a light margarita, very refreshing and super customizable! I usually get it with Mezcal option and spicy! I Highly recommend it! I miss their usual salsas that they used to offer. I guess because of covid they don’t do this currently. I decided to try something new this time and get their ricotta enchiladas. OMGGGGG so good. The ricotta is made from cashews. I literally will crave this dish forever! My absolute new favorite! You can also never go wrong with their guacamole!
One of the greatest restaurants in LA! Food is amazing every time and very dog friendly!
New menu is huge improvement. Their cocktails are always amazing especially mezcal margarita
Our table was ready at time of Rez, our server was attentive, food was excellent, drinks were great, felt safe with COVID precautions.
Burrito was very good. The jalapeno salsa could have been hotter. I miss the old menu and the blackbean burger. This new menu was mediocre.
Was my birthday. Food was good and the seating was nice and outside.
What the stars say!
Overall a great place to have vegan food and enjoy the outdoor seating
It was an awesome experience. Great food and even better service.
Fantastic as always
It was good.
We loved the food and the ambiance! Will definitely be back!
the food was excellent, great service, and the ambiance was perfect!
The food was excellent as was the service. they had just begun construction in the street outside which was the only negative to an otherwise FLAWLESS experience. Will return!
I took my little brother here for his 30th birthday. The interior decor of the restaurant is very cool and the outside garden area is spacious shaded by all the trees and umbrellas. If you're a carnivore this may not be the place for you, as their plates are all vegetarian, although it should be noted that, I myself, am not vegeterian and still very much enjoyed the "al pastor tacos."
Their DRINKS are SO GOOD! I had the Paloma which were very refreshing and strong, and I also got a chance to try their michelada, which was very well balanced. A lot of places can't get their micheladas right, but Gracias Madre does.
We were a party of 5 and spent $400 (just sharing this as a point of reference) We also did order ALL the starters. (Cauliflower was the table's favorite) but hey you only turn 30 once.
Excellent covid regulations in place. Tables are still kind of close to each other though. They check your temperature, masks required at all times except when you’re at your table. Food was great as well.
Food was so-so - not the mindblowing experience others had said.
The check-in and safety protocols at the beginning were great but I felt like it was too crowded. People were definitely less than 6 feet apart. I felt a bit uneasy throughout dinner.
Amazing as always but guys its very hard to hear the servers through the mask, face shield and then over the music. Just a heads up. We’ve had 5 business meetings there over the past several months and it’s been nothing but great.
Food made my girlfriend sick.don’t think everything is plant based on the menu.
Birthday dinner. Great drinks and amazing food. Food so good it makes you wanna be vegan.
Nice spot, good drinks, but the food looked better than it tasted. I wasn’t impressed with the pork tacos.
Disappointed. This place used to be delicious and now it's the complete opposite. Awful drinks and foods. Will not return. Too bad as the space is gorgeous.
Food was average expensive for Mexican food that has only plant based protein.
So good! Their corn is to die for and all the bowls are amazing.
Lovely service and ambiance as always!
I was so looking forward to eating out after 6 months of take out and when GM's patio opened up we were there! 7:00pm on a Sunday evening. We've eaten there many times and been happy, but Sunday was a joke. Our food kept coming out before we got half way finished with what we were eating and the table was so small the plates didn't fit. We felt rushed the whole time and had just ordered our second drinks and my partner was still eating and they brought out dessert!!! It was ridiculous. We were not planning on staying longer than the 2 hour allotted time - but after all of that they got what they wanted -- we couldn't wait to leave. Very disappointing.
Vibrant atmosphere and delicious food. Cannot wait to go back.
Took 2 non vegans and they loved it. Will be my back to try the dinner menu :)
I have not been here in a while, and this visit will bring me back again soon. Food was delicious! Loved the prix fixe menu.
