This was my first visit to Grace's Mandarin, but it won't be my last. The decor is rich in Asian culture and dramatic without being over the top. Upon entering the giant, golden, double doors at the entrance, I quickly realized our group was in for a dining experience that engaged all of our five senses. From the decadent decor... More

For our 25th wedding celebration, our children made a reservation at Grace’s Mandarin at the National Harbor. This has been, by far, the best restaurant we have been invited to. Everything was perfect: the food, the dish presentation, the service, the music, the environment--everything! From the moment we arrived, everyone knew that we were celebrating a special occasion and they... More

I went on Christmas day and I have to say it was very busy. They gave us warm towels while we ordered our food which was a nice touch. Since I wasn't feeling very adventurous, I decided to order the pork fried rice, a classic. The portions are quite large but tasty nonetheless. The decor was very elegant. I don't... More

Great food and wonderful ambiance, but very pricey. Hubby and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was very close by the Gaylord.

I visited while on a business trip. I sat in the lounge which was nice for me dining solo. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and has a nice view of the water. I feel like you are paying for the name or National Harbor location. It was a pricey for what you got. I had a spicy tuna roll... More

Our dining experience at Grace's Mandarin was superb, both the food and the atmosphere. Classic elegant and comfortable atmosphere with a memorable sunset view. The management takes great care to insure your experience is enjoyable from beginning to end, starting (and ending) with a warm, fragrant washcloth to cleansing. No matter where you sat in this upscale yet not pretentious... More
