Loved it!

My husband took me here for date night and it was exceptional. The chef/owner/server/host was exceptional. I had the foi gras, sea scallops and creme brulee. We were the only couple there on a cold Sunday evening. I hope they get more clientele!

I had the opportunity to have dinner at Chez Grace recently and wondered why the place wasn't packed. This was fine dining at its best. Lovely decor, white linen table cloths, great ambiance. The chef was the server and was attentive without being too arrentive. I had the pear and brie salad, which was exquisite. The best salad I have... More

From the moment you walk in to this lovely intimate little space with its charming Parisian decor and twinkling lights, you will know you have chosen a worthy place to celebrate life's landmarks. Chef greeted us at the door, showed us to our table, took our order and served us the meal, each course of which he prepared and paced... More

My son's 23rd birthday meal was a fantastic experience. The food was fresh and very flavorful. Chef was full of personality and very proud of his establishment. The foie gras on carmelized pear was out of this world!

We were in town for a convention, and looked this place up on Trip Advisor. It is in a small strip mall between a Mediteranean grocery store and a felafel restaurant. But once you're inside the ambiance changes dramatically. It is simple and elegant. OK, the menu is presented on copy paper, but it changes frequently. You pay by the... More

Celebrating my daughter's birthday, we could not have imagined a more perfect restaurant to do so. We had very high expectations before arriving based on reviews and every one of our expectations were joyfully exceeded. We opted for the six course tasting menu lovingly and freshly prepared, presented and served by Chef David, a master. We had foie gras, butternut... More

Despite living only about 50 miles away, Coralville is not a place I visit often. In fact we have not been there since we moved here five years ago. Looked for a nice eating experience nearby and found Chez Grace on the internet. Our daughter is a cooking professional (baker) and pretty fussy about food but we like to treat... More

From the curb, i wasn't so sure. But once inside this place - I could have swore i was eating in New York, or Chicago, at a first class establishment. The music was perfect, the lighting was perfect, the ambiance, decor... perfect. The food was...incredible. You could pick this place up, and set it down in Vegas, or NY.. and... More
