My birthday dinner at GRACE last night was every bit deserving of 3 Michelin Stars. Food was exquisite, wine pairing was top-notch, service was impeccable, BUT if you're looking for a more theatrical and dramatic food presentation and unique once-in-a-lifetime dining experience, you will walk out of here feeling a bit underwhelmed. Sorry Chef Duffy but this is where Alinea... More

This restuarant is really only appreciated by those who want to experience art in a dining experience. Throw your concept of dining and value when you come to this restaurant. You will recognize a large group of impeccable wait staff and a fully manned kitchen that create more than a 1:1 ratio of servers to guests. You know you are... More

It begins with an ambience that calmly and quietly says, "prepare for something special." Nicely spaced tables, soft, beige surroundings; a full dining room yet, a noise level where you barely have to speak above a whisper. A quick decision about the menu. Flora or Fauna; Fish-meat or vegetarian. Wine pairings or not. And then comes a virtual gastronomic serenade.... More

Words cannot express what a wonderful experience we had at Grace. We had the private room and from start to finish our team of 10 waiters and waitresses were A+. Absolutely outstanding and a once in a lifetime opportunity you must try.

The restaurant is quiet and understated - but open to the kitchen to see what's going on and to watch the workers. The sommelier was friendly and really explained the wine pairings quite well. The food is amazing. Delicious but with unique presentations. Yes its pricey, but the Michelin stars are well-earned.

I cannot come up with one bad thing to say about this restaurant. The experience was simply sublime. The service is impeccable and the food is perfect mix between hedonisms and complexity. The chef's palate is extremely complex with an emphasis on balance. After dining here I almost feel I know Chef Duffy. For me that is what great food... More
