Nice Place -- Wide Assortment of Asian Cuisine

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... read 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.

A colleague and I were in-town for a convention at the nearby Gaylord Hotel and ventured out of the hotel for dinner one night. After doing a fair bit of research on nearby restaurants we settled on Grace's Mandarin. Service was atrocious. Our server was totally clueless about the menu and wines...for instance, when we asked if they had sparkling... More

Awesome atmosphere with amazing decor. Good food prepared well. It is a bit pricey, as everthing in National Harbor is. If your server doesn't give you the run down on some of the decorations, ask.

The service and atmosphere here are amazing! It is just beautiful. My daughter and I had fantastic meals. She is a vegetarian and had the bird nest which was tofu and vegetables. I had Hawaiian chicken. The presentation for both dishes was extraordinary. You also get a view of the water. It was the best Chinese food either of us... More

My family had dinner at this Asian Fusion restaurant and for the most part thought the food was good. Visitors are greeted by a two story tall golden Buddha and the decor never lets up, surrounding guests by brightly colored ornaments ranging from fanciful arrangements of foliage and cloth to more or less authentic looking cloisonné vases. Service was slow... More

I agree with other reviewers who said that you pay a bit much for rather generic asian cuisine. My sushi was pretty good if not excellent. And a bit expensive for what you got. My friend's dish was mediocre as well for the price. The atmosphere was nice and not too loud. Probably a better place for a business lunch... More

Highly disappointing meal. Expensive, small portions, and the food was not of high quality. We left hungry and went to go get pizza at another restaurant. Food Orders: Crab Rangoon (okay), the lobster/scallops/shrimp ($48, small portion), sashimi (not high quality fish), pork chops (okay). Reservations: We went around 6:30pm on a Monday so they were not needed. You can make... More

We went here on a Saturday night when the entire area was mobbed due to many conventions and such at the Gaylord. We got seated quickly as we decided to eat at the outside bar (weather was perfect - a delightful evening) otherwise the wait would have been an hour. The only glitch is for a while they had run...

We ate here on a weekend trip in D.C. We had an appetizer, 2 entree's and 1 beer a piece and our bill was right at $100. I wouldn't spend that much everyday but we were on a mini vacation so it was fine. I thought the food was exceptional and would definitely eat here again if in the area.
