The subtle elegance of the dining room provides a comfortably luxurious setting in which to enjoy Chef Duffy's Progressive American cuisine, offered in a tasting menu format. In addition to the dining room, a private dining space to accommodate up to 12 is available, as well as a lounge for a pre- or post-dinner drink. Grace looks forward to welcoming you.

I now know what three star Michelin is all about. I've been to one star several times, but had never been to a three. It's not about the stars, but Grace deserves all the accolades it gets. That was an experience I will never forget. The environment is IMPECCABLE. The service couldn't be more human and APPROPRIATE. The food is... More

I reviewed this restaurant in Nov of 2013 and stated it did not live up to the hype as we didn't enjoy our first experience here. However I am happy to say that I have returned and the experience was near perfect! The food was far better than before, and the service was much better too. I think part of... More

My wife and I recently dined at Grace to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We typically use our anniversary as an opportunity to explore some of the country's best restaurants including The French Laundry, Alinea, Tru, Avenues, Trotter's and Sixteen. All of these restaurants are superb, but I wanted to write this review to single out Grace as I believe it... More

I've eaten in a number of Michelin 3 Star restaurants in Tokyo, New York, Paris and now Chicago and while the menu was terrific (imaginative and great on the palate) as was the wine list, and the staff terrific - efficient and friendly but not inappropriately - I was stunned by the final bill. By comparison I ate at Daniel... More

Okay, this is a good news, bad news review which accounts for 3 circles. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. We always try to have a super duper, special meal for each other's dinner. And we waited until a trip to Chicago to have the meal that would send us over the top. Well, we did and didn't have... More

Booked the private room for 12 people. Everything was outstanding, plating was beautiful, flavors were complex but not over the top. Wine selection was strong. Service was very professional. The attention to detail certainly warrants the ratings it receives. Definitely top 5 in Chicago and compares favorably to the best in NY

I made our reservation when Grace had 2 Michelin stars. And it was a very pleasant surprise to discover that Grace received 3 stars right before our scheduled date. We arrived 20 min late, which I am embarrassed to admit. But the staff greeted and made us feel welcomed with professionalism and poise. Service involved a complex rehearsed choreography of... More

We went to this restaurant under the recommendation of a friend. Food was good. Servers are very professional and all over the place. Does it worth the price? Very frankly: No. The restaurant has no windows and the atmosphere is very heavy.

I expected nothing less than one of the best meals of my life since this restaurant has THREE Michelin stars. I was right. Each course was served and arrived looking like a work of art. It was a shame to eat them :). The food was amazing. The ingredients were odd combinations by reading them, but worked perfectly. The dinning... More
