Nice atmosphere, good food

Had dinner here while attending a conference in National Harbor. The place is nicely decorated inside with a great atmosphere. They had a lot of good options on the menu and the food was interesting and flavorful. Worth going to if you are in the area!

We travel often and recently went to this restaurant. Atmosphere is tasteful, yet busy. Attention to every detail is perfection. Service (David) was FLAWLESS and that's uncommon for me to even say! Menu offers wide variety from sushi to asian cuisine and everything was deliciously fresh. Don't walk ... RUN to this place!

I am of an Asian background this place is not really for Asian food lover. Overpriced and service sucks here. My server gave me crab cakes the size of a quarter not warm. When I sent it back the manager asked me several time would I like to have them warmed up to reserve it back to me. I thought... More

We miss the elegance of Mr. K's in Washington but now we have Grace's Mandarin. It is beautifully decorated (even the bathrooms). Great view of the Patomac and the food is top notch. Our waitress, Apassare made several wonderful suggestions. Who would have thought to order lamb chops in a Chinese restaurant. We had a warm crab filled pastry dish... More

The food is excellent and elegantly presented. The decor is colorful and the view is lovely. Four of us shared small plate lunch dishes. . Each of us was pleased. I felt like I was in China Town In San Francisco. This is not "typical" Chinese Food. Look at the menu before you sit down!

I have a very bleh taste in my mouth after a visit to Grace's today, and this is as much from the bland veggie crunch sushi as well as the "service". And for once the issue with the service isn't really the fault of our server, though he did forget to order our spring rolls. The issue was actually with... More

Although it's a Mandarin, it's not Chinese food. If you want sushi and sake, this is your place. The staff are very friendly and the food was really good. We were able to walk in but it did start to get crowded as we were leaving.

No wonton soup? That was the first surprise. We consider ourselves aficionados of Chinese food, but there were lots of unfamiliar dishes on this menu. We got National Harbour fried rice with loads of seafood and veggies in brown rice. Also delicious was Land Sea and Sky with huge shrimp, pork, beef, and veggies in an edible basket. The place...

You’ll have a grand time in this large, very well appointed restaurant. Knowledgeable staff, and service was good. Sushi was fine, however some other entrees where overdone. Group of 6 of us had a wonderful time in an oversized round booth, meant to make you feel like a VIP. Priced to impress. Foodies may want to choose wisely.

Oh my gosh was this a delightful surprise! The menu is extensive offering unusual choices with a Mandarin twist. Service was very attentive and offered great suggestions. Starting out with hot towels was a nice touch. The duck choices were hard to chose between but was not disappointed with my choice. You could order anything from small plates to regular... More
