Prices are quite high for what is takeaway standard food. I was dining alone and the staff were clearly not happy to have a lone diner to service despite the establishment being far from full. My main was delivered less than five minutes after my starter and long before I was ready for my second course; the service was abrupt... More

I was a guest in largish party that had pre-boomed a table for 8pm. Didn't get seated until well after half-past. Once seated the range of food and wine on offer was excellent and the staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere but would hesitate to go back with such a large party again.

A friend suggested this restaurant for a farewell and I reluctantly agreed, but was I ever in for a surprise! This restaurant is more Pan-Asian than Chinese with an array of wonderfully prepared dishes served in an opulent setting. It is like no other Asian restaurant I have ever been in, and I travel the world! From the time you... More

During our 5 day stay at National Harbor we had dinner at this place twice. The food is so good and the service was excellent both times. Both times ordered different things and all was delicious. The restaurant decor is beautiful.

Love coming here to eat. Try to sit on the second floor by the window. Women ask for a chair for you purse. Looking out over the harbor is beautiful. I will miss it most of all

Across the street from the Gaylord and with a nice view of the Potomac, Grace's was an absolute surprise, perhaps the best Asian restaurant we have ever found. The restaurant is beautiful, every table has orchids, and the food is terrific. We had the crab Rangoon, a perfectly prepared fish and the crab meat fried rice. Grace's is so good... More

We tried different restaurants here in National Harbor and this one was the best so far. The first impression with just the decor was impressive and they solidified that with great service. They start with the hot towel service like the high end restaurants in other areas. I had the Beijing Punch and it was great house drink. I went... More

I normally do not like oriental food but my meal at this restaurant was DELICIOUS. I was invited to a birthday celebration at this restaurant and I must say that I was pleasantly satisfied. The food was flavored really well and it was also reasonably price for the amount of food

We attended with a party of 8 after a resent meeting at the Gaylord, located across the street. The waiter was very attentive, and organized and our food was presented quickly. This restaurant clearly pays a lot of attention to interior design, many Chinese style artifacts But they should pay more attention to best practice in hospitiatliy. They refuse to... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. The lamb is consistently tender and full of flavor. The National Harbor rice is fantastic and filling. I have been here at least 5 times within a year and they never disappoint!
