    Overpriced. $17 for two little flautas?? Lame.
  • Praphull K.
    Vegan Mexican food. But mango Margarita was just average.
  • Amber L.
    Unlike EVERYWHERE else, you're not allowed to sit at the bar to bypass waiting for tables. The bartender will tell you testily to go see the hostess. The food is great, though.

    Bowl uno is so bomb. I'm not vegan and I would be if I ate here everyday!
  • Raquel M.
    Expensive for vegan food.
  • Marisa F.
    This is the best vegan/vegetarian restaurant I've tried! Delicious food, great service & comfortable environment. You gotta try the Totopos! Hands up! 🙌🏼😋

    I was skeptical at first, but this place was fantastic. Drinks were strong, food was delish, atmosphere was lively.

    I'm not a vegan and am usually hesitant about vegan food. But Gracias Madre was amazing! The food is very flavorful and with big portions!

    The freshest, most fulfilling mexican cuisine. Try the Coliflor Frito and the Empanadas (filled with smoky plantains).

    Cruelly disappointing: too many flavours, too rich and heavy, too spicy. Fabulous guacamole and nachos though!

    The food is good; definitely doesn't taste vegan. The service couldn't be any more indifferent to your presence.

    Fantastic vegan mexican food. The best! Really enjoyed the Tamale and the bowl. Food was full of flavor, yet still not very heavy like a lot of mexican restaurants tend to be. Highly recommended.

    Totopos and tacos were good, if overpriced. The family style seating is bizarre. Our four person group sat at a six person table with a couple on a date.

    Sweet potato quesadilla big enough to be a dinner in itself! You'll be seated at large tables with other parties - I think that's kind of cool, but not everyone's scene.

    I used to really love this place, my recent visits have yielded abrasive waiters, entrees being served before apps & half the table waiting while the other half eats. Those tortillas though... Perfect

    This vegan Mexican spot is as popular as the day the handsome metal grates opened. Items like the open faced enchiladas and mashed black beans prove that the food can bridge the carnivore divide. Read more

    Food is on point - start with the Totopos + Guacamole and end with the Peach Cobbler. Pro-tips: add coconut bacon to your tacos and skip the green "juice" (it's a lemony, watery hot mess)
