4 out of 5 stars Since I started eating about 80% raw, I've come to appreciate this place more -- but I still find it hit or miss. And its so expensive, I can't afford to "miss" on a salad. Luckily the dessert is always right on. I recommend sticking to dessert. cinnazimt

4.5 out of 5 stars I love, love, love the I am Cool Milkshake. Quinoa bowl is phenomenal (order with beans and cashew cheese). Desserts are heavenly: coconut cream pie, key lime pie, brazil nut ice creams. Food is a bit pricey, but worth it. The menu is inventive (amazing what you can do raw) and ingredients are always fresh. A nice break from processed food. Always feel great after a meal at Cafe Gratitude. Dana

5 out of 5 stars Excellent food along with the higher prices. I've been here several times with open minded omnivores and most liked it a lot. You just need to accept, for example, that a CG "pizza" is not at all like a regular pizza. I've found the staff to be quite nice on average; service does sometimes take awhile but the place is so popular and food prep must take awhile. A great place to try raw food. greg

3 out of 5 stars I like the idea of this place, but the food just doesn't live up to the hype. I'd happily return here for dessert and smoothies. I'll never go back for a meal. My dad and I spent $80 on dinner and still walked out hungry. The food is beautifully prepared, but too light, the portions too small and the raw interpretations on traditionally cooked items require too much stretching of the mind Pook

5 out of 5 stars I had dinner with 3 non-veg coworkers and we all thought our meal was excellent. Basil pizza, nachos, spring roll, quinoa/kale/black beans/guacamole. I let slide the robotic dopey singing by wait staff of John Lennon's "You Say It's Your Birthday" to diners having their birthday meal there. The food and good service make up for that one lapse in judgment. Creative, flavorful, colorful, tasty. Vegan Living
