Great for large groups

Staff was very attentive and served our party of eight with ease. View from upstairs dining room is incredible. Food was average in quality and price for the area.

One word, "delicious" National harbor fried rice; lobster, shrimp, scallop; and lamb chops all a must have. Portions are a nice size but pricey.

This place is really nice looking, very original. I had a mojito at the bar on the 1st floor and one on the 2nd floor - they were completely different! Inconsistent recipes. I had chicken, it was very good but nothing special. The sushis were dissapointing - they just tasted bland. The ones we buy at a local grocery store... More

I never write reviews but after our experience I thought that I should. We made a reservation for 4 on Saturday night. We were seated at a community table with strangers (which was definitely not our preference) when there was a table for 4 available. Out of the 3 servers that waited on us only one of them was friendly.... More

The food was pretty looking but not worth the a 80 bucks we paid for the two of us. The music was loud and obnoxious techno/electronica. Obviously trying to be trendy and cater to a specific niche that my wife and I aren't a part of. Won't be returning to that restaurant.

My husband and I ate here for dinner. I ordered the Land and Sea Delight and he ordered the Lantern Chicken. Bill came to $80 with glasses of wine. Really, just OK. Not terrible, but not as flavorful as P F Changs. I wish I had salt; but none on the table. Lacked flavor. BTW, the Mexican Restaurant down the... More

We enjoy the Happy Hour religiously! The sushi and all small plates are 1/2 price. We get the spicy firecracker shrimp roll, lamb pops with a tangy goat cheese sauce, crab cakes, and the beef short ribs. All are DELECTABLE and a bargain between 3pm -6pm. The decor is gorgeous and right out of the orient. The staff is wonderful... More

Our group enjoyed the visit to Grace's Mandarin. Service was good, decor great, and the food wasn't bad, but just not as good as I would've expected given the price and ambiance. My dish was high on the salt, which masked the flavor quite a bit. Same with the soups we had. Sushi was good.

I visited this restaurant today for lunch and was very disappointed with the sushi I was served. The rice was hard and the sushi flavor was just not there. In fact, the size of the rolls and the actual sushi were very small and the thickness of the fish cuts was so thin that I could virtually see the rice... More
