I had the portabella mushroom tacos that were delicious. The mushroom was fried, with a special sauce, so yummy.

People may think that the word vegan is synonym of bad taste, and thought that too until I went to Gracias Madre! The food tastes the same as the not vegan. I had the Mole Tamale and it was as great as traditional Mexican tamales. The service was super good. You have to try the mezcal cocktail and the churros.

We are thrilled to have Gracias Madre in the neighborhood! The food is really fabulous and very satisfying. The service was good as well. The only caveat is the price of beer/wine - OMG!!!!! The cheapest Pinot Noir by the glass was $18 - that is a HUGE markup. We get that there is a markup on alcohol but that glass of pinot was more expensive than my dinner.

Overall an excellent experience - we'll just have some wine before we leave home....

Sat in the heated outside patio - nice ambiance and trendy vibes. Ordered the burrito bowl with flour tortillas on the side. Others ordered Enchiladas and Chili Rellano, Guac and Chips. Everything was outstanding. The only side which one person did not like was what I think was blue tortillas as a side. Inside is a bit noisy so we chose the outside. They do have a semi private room which looked nice and might be a bit quieter. Not sure.

Had lunch at Gracias Madre, which took the place of Cafe Gratitude. Having been a vegetarian for over 40 years I was excited. The ambiance of the restaurant was very chic and comfortable. Once seated we were attended to by very attentive, competent and efficient wait staff. We tried a variety of dishes. Chips and guacamole were good. Favorite of mine was the jackfruit taco. My friend, a carnivore, had the BTLA wrap said only ingredient missing was meat. Another friend had the tamale and felt it was lacking in flavor. Each entree had an interesting garnish which was unexpected and very tasty. Disappointed to receive margaritas in small glasses full of ice which weren’t completely filled. Prices were expensive for vegan food but not for the location of the restaurant.
Lastly I’d like to note our uncomfortable seating. When we arrived, the hostess immediately asks if we had a reservation. We did not. And since the restaurant was empty we were confused. While I understand it may have been to clear a potential reservation her demeanor was uninviting and rude. No smile, hello, welcome-sorry but this is not a good introduction to any new establishment.
