We were back at Grace, and the entire experience was just as good as noted in my previous review. The food was outstanding, everyone is pleasant, and things happen just as you think of them (having your checked items ready as you walk out is a very nice touch). The food has many inventive combinations, with wonderful flavors. Each plate... More

Grace has it all. Service, ambience and cooking at a level we've never experienced before. In context, we also dined at Alinea and Sixteen this trip and this far surpassed either. Formal, but not stuffy, with food that was flavourful and imaginative, but not silly. The pricing for the tasting menu plus wine pairing is great value for this experience.... More

Grace is one of the top restaurants in the city and, like many others, has a prix-fixe menu. The food was excellent - very artistic plates. The service was superlative. The wine pairings were excellent and the pours were very generous, The room is quiet, comfortable, and understated. They offer visits to the open kitchen. It's definitely worth a visit... More

Ate dinner with my fiance at Grace on a Saturday night. From the time I called for a reservation to the end of our meal, the staff was friendly and helpful. You could say that the staff at all high end restaurants are always helpful and trying to anticipate your needs, but the staff at Grace were a lot more... More

My first time at Grace. The food was amazing. Many dishes I couldn't even pronounce, but no matter. It's a hefty price at $205 pp. But the 10 course meal is absolutely worth it. Flavors you will never find in an average style restaurant. Definitely worth of Michelin status

One goes to Grace to experience new ways to enjoy a meal; The menu is amazing with about 9 dishes; We have experienced unknown flavors & enjoyed the 3 hours spent for dining. The staff is very attentive & offered to visit the Kitchen before we left. Some may probably criticize Large Plates with Little things inside... but frankly after... More

They have 2 choices only, vegetarian and meat lovers! I choose meat and it was good, my husband loved it but next time I will try vegetarian. The wines were incredible good, each choice comes with 8 different plates you can choose a glass of wine with each plate and the combinations between each plate and wine were excellent specially...

I have to say while i had heard all kinds of wonderful things about this restaurant it still exceeded my expectations. We were wowed from the first moment - service, wine and food were all superb. We were celebrating - a bit belatedly -- my birthday. Hopefully I will get to visit again for my next birhtday!

i use the word 'experience' purposefully, as dinner in curtis duffy's fine space is an event i won't ever forget. there is positive wizardry in his combinations. his food lives in the place where creativity, science and magic coexist and it's wonderful to partake. the service was impeccable, and very friendly. the flavor combinations were brave and so, so tasty....
