    I’ve loved every dish here so far and everyone I bring loves it too. I never feel rushed at any time (even when they’re clearly closing). Great chill vibe with exceptional vegan food.

    this is one of my favorite restaurants in LA everything is really fresh and super flavorful and everyone who works there is really nice! I have celiac disease and a soy allergy and I let my waiter know and he totally took care of me and doublecheck the ingredients on everything! highly recommend the walnut cookie with ice cream it comes in a skillet and it's really warm and gooey and very incredible

    The food at cafe gratitude is consistently delicious for both vegans and omnivores and for that I’m grateful.  the service was adequate, but sort of slow and not particularly great, and the ambience could be a little more appealing inside.

    I heard about this restaurant from a podcast and had a business trip near the Venice location. I was so pleased to make the trip. I had a lovely meal and it was very delicious. I will go back in a few days before I need to return home. I am so glad I went.

    While the atmosphere at Cafe Gratitude was pleasant, our dining experience was somewhat marred by an uncomfortable seating arrangement. Despite being a party of two, we were given a two-seating table while other parties of two were seated at larger, four-seat tables. This discrepancy led us to question whether the hostess was selectively assigning seating based on race. Overall, the food was decent, but the seating situation left a sour taste in our mouths.

    Food was great (and I rarely say that). Portion sizes too small for the cost. Service was minimal. Overall recommend but wouldn’t go often since it’s really overpriced.
