Gracias Madre makes you feel as though you have been instantly transported in to a mini vacation, somewhere more European then LA. The food is great, best when shared so you can try a mix of menu options. The outdoor area is beautiful! Just be...More

Great service and equally great food! Nice choice of drinks, not your typical cocktails. Our only complaint is the high volume in the restaurant, it's so loud from all the people talking that it's difficult to have a normal conversation.

Definitely in the top ten of the worst meals I've ever had. No kidding. The quinoa salad was abysmal. The home made ginger ale had a bite. Not a good thing. To the restaurant's credit, my kid loves this place. I won't be back.

We were very impressed with the food at Gracias Madre because we are really no vegans. The place has a nice patio. We set inside which is a little bit noisy but otherwise quite nice. The food is really excellent. We could have just stayed...More
