Enjoyed eating vegan at Cafe Gratitude. The food was good and plenty of it. It did get quite crowded around 12:15pm which did slow down service and the noise level did get a bit high but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a true vegan. A word of caution, for people who have allergies and asthma better check to see what ingredients are being used.

Chose the restaurant because it is close to the Morrocan Lounge and it was vegetarian. The food and service were outstanding. Had the Watermelon Poke which was wonderful. Looking forward to my next visit to the Arts District so we can dine at Cafe Gratitude again.

Very loud but service was wonderful and food for the non vegans among us was surprisingly delicious. Apparently one of the better branches of this chain according to the vegan.

we've been to Gratitude Beverly HIlls 4x and Arts District 3x including this visit.
Obviously we like "Gratitude" restaurants.
This experience was NOT typical Gratitude.
The place was practically empty on a Sunday 5:00pm.
Food ordered by 5:15
meals came out at 6:00pm...........45 minutes ........serving 4
One meal came out cold.
Ordered crispy French Fries with meal.
Go extra brown,limp cold french fries.

Not a Gratitude we will want to come back to.
We'll just have to wait until we are in Beverly Hills, where the food is always good, and the servers very pleasant.

We come here often but this visit was below our expectations. We were celebrating Father's Day and there were guests kids skating on the patio. It was loud. The service was also very slow.

We love this vegan only restaurant. We are regulars and are treated as a member of the family. They know me by my name since I’m the one that makes the reservations. I love the décor and the entire ambiance.

Rude server, overpriced food, was charged for a dish we never received, even the French fries took 40 mins to reach the table and they were cold. Super disappointed :/

With a vegan friend on our first visit to the Arts District. Parking was easy on a cool, early Saturday evening. We had cocktails at the nearby Here and Now before dinner. All the dishes we had were very good. I particularly liked the Brussels sprouts starter. The curry and Hawaiian pizza were hits and the portions were generously shareable. Prices were reasonable and our server was attentive but unobtrusive when we were talking.

The food was extra delicious, and our server Sarah was super cute, but the location is so manufactured :/ Beautiful space, but I’ll still with Larchmont, thanks :)

Slow service for not being busy at all. Overpriced, overhyped salty food. Worth a try like once? The words of affirmation menu concept is stupid. Seems like our server got offended that we didn’t buy into the “I AM______” style of ordering. This restaurant should add the following three new menu items: “I AM salty”, “I AM sorry” & “I AM over it”. Will not be back unless I’m forced to go.

I am not a vegetarian (or vegan). Both my dinner partner and I were impressed with the menu variety, ease of ordering (one word descriptions like "original" and "terrific") and the flavor of the dishes. We both said we'd go back.

Great vegetarian place to eat. Has a variety of food that tastes amazing! The vibe is hipster which is not my cup of tea, but a great experience. You order your food by saying "I am..."

The host made me wait for 10 minutes waiting for a table and came back to just tell me that she would come back to me in a few minutes. I thought it was rude, considering I already had a reservation and the place was not full

The food is quite good. It makes a meat lover believe being vegan is not too much of a stretch. It was a bit noisy, and I do believe the prices are a bit high, but the place is trendy, so I guess we are paying for that...and we have to be thankful for this too....hmmmm.

Food was not good. The bread and the French fries were burnt. The server was not friendly. Some of the food items were out of stock. When we ordered pizza we were told they did not have anymore and we received the same response when we ordered one of the drinks. We were very disappointed. I would not return to this location nor recommend it to a friend.
