Grace's Mandarin is a nice date spot. Good food, wine, and atmosphere. Pretty nice view out over the river too.

The artifacts are reminiscent of Ancient China and are a lovely accent to the modern day china, and the delicious presentation of each meal and beverage. The waiters and hosts are very pleasant and attentive.

I live in the National Harbor so my husband and I finally decided to walk down and check out Grace's. That ambiance is nice with nice views of the harbor. We had the seaweed sampler (creative and tasty - healthy), volcano sushi, Asian lamb, and lump crab fried rice. All the food was tasty, seasoned very well, and fresh. Our... More

I wasn't impressed: Average (Asian) food and over-priced. It had a good view of the river and nice interior design though.

Service was fast and the food was pretty good. I shouldn't have ordered the whole rockfish as I didn't realized it wasn't deboned but that was my mistake. Definitely on the cheaper end of the restaurants in the area.

We went with a group of ten people as we were in town for a conference. The decor was very nice with a tray of reading glasses when we entered. There was a good selection of food including sushi. Our waiter was very attentive and accommodating, and they even let everyone use our own credit cards. I had eel sushi... More

This place is really cool-looking on the inside, and we were impressed that they had a basket of reading glasses available. Food is excellent. It is pricey but the food and service and ambience make it well worth it.

Had dinner four 4 and service was excellent and never felt in a rush -- had table for over 3-hours with very tasty slections to include the signature dessert. Great views looking out over the harbor, and prices are not cheap in the national harbor so be prepared. This is fine dining but in a casual Asian atmosphere.
