Good chinese, very convenient location to Gaylord Center

The menu is not just Mandarin, but a wider range of Asian, including Thai. Food was good, prices a touch high, but about average for National harbor, which is very expensive.

I went there with husband, son, and friend. We are seated promptly, the decor was real nice, the waiter attentive, but the food nothing to rave about. If you are going there for the ambience, and want to pay high prices... This is the place. I definitely wouldn't go back. My husband ordered beef with rice without looking at the... More

This is a great restaurant. Was here for a group dinner upstairs and it was really nice. Small plates and apps were the best. Ate here twice during our stay

Grace's is an elaborate restaurant, both inside and out, with Buddhas, plantings, artwork, etc. Despite its name, the menu selections are not heavily Chinese, including Continental, Thai, Korean, and Japanese dishes, among others. We had four dinners and one lunch at Grace's. The food was good enough to keep us coming back. The hot and sour soup was especially tasty.... More

My husband and I had a reservation. We were seated promptly. This restaurant is beautiful and very large. It is 3 stories. The menu is very large so it is hard to decide, so ask your server. The service was excellent and very attentive. We ordered a Sea bass entree and a grilled seafood with rice. So, so fresh! I... More

Started with very slow service and mediocre food. When the bill came we were charged $8 per/cup tea totaling $32 after spending $300 on dinner for 4. When we asked the manager who said his name was "Ruiz" about the pricy charge for the tea and the 18% automatic gratuity for a party of FOUR women, we were treated to... More

I had dinner with work colleagues at Grace's Mandarin and it was very good. The cocktails were also very good. The Pad Thai was particularly tasty. A good place overall,

Absolutely love the atmosphere in this restaurant! Everything is so beautiful so much detail. We had warm sake, the assorted seaweed salad, uni, spicy scallop roll, creme brûlée and coconut sorbet. Flavors were all there and the food was so worth the prices! The staff is very welcoming as well!

Thank Faran F
