I was very impressed with this place; nice decor, quiet -- you can actually carry on a conversation without raising your voice --and good food at very reasonable prices. We stumbled on this place after we went to Eric's for lunch, but they weren't serving lunch specials because it was a holiday. Searched on Yelp for an alternate Chinese restaurant nearby and came here. It was a Saturday and the 4th of July, but they had lunch specials at better prices than Eric's. Service was attentive, while Eric's is merely perfunctory. The three of us had different entrees and they were all good. They have an extensive menu, and we had such a positive experience we will be coming back again for dinner to sample more of their dishes. (Note: Four stars is always my highest rating. I reserve 5 stars for the best of the best and upscale restaurants.)
I went to Gracia Madre with some friends not knowing what to expect. Although I am not a vegan, I'm open minded and will try most vegan/ vegetarian dishes. What I received I did not expect! I ordered the enchiladas and was delighted by the cashew 'cheese', the mushrooms are what gave the dish the protein and punch it needed to fill me up. The sauce was slightly spicy and gratifying. My friend ordered a caeser salad for everyone to share- and thak God he did! The caesar salad was incredible! Not sure what was in the dressing, but it had loads of flavor; salty (but not too salty) and a bit tart - I did not miss the anchovies! The setting was warm and comfortable, I loved the long wooden tables and rustic feel. For all of you cynical of vegan Mexican food like I was, try it! you will not be disappointed!
This place is epic! The food tastes fresh, the restaurant is clean, prices are reasonable and most importantly the food is finger licking good!!!!!! My cousin brought me here and right away we were greeted by owner. The owner was very nice and was ready to cater to our needs. He spoke with us, made some recommendations and had some good laughs. The food is amazing...Szechuan beef!!! General Tsao chicken or tofu....amazing....volcano prawns...for those who love sweet and spicy!!! I need to try the dry braised chicken wings, honey walnut prawns and everything else. Also the menu is interesting, the menu explains all the styles of which the food is cooked, very helpful. I've only been three times to eat at this location, but I plan to attend more with my wife and twins!!!
