“Very good group dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had a group dinner here and it completely met our expectations. We had a separate room and the food and service was very good. There was a variety of pre-ordered appetizers and sushi and a bento box type dinner with smaller portions of several entrees. I liked the food a lot and the variety was nice.

One person asked for gluten free information and rather than just provide information, they were able to bring her versions of the food that met her needs. Darn good service, especially for a group event.

I would not hesitate to try this again as a regular dining option.

“I Love Grace's Mandarin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

What's not to love about Grace's Mandarin...delicious food and drinks (though a bit pricey), excellent presentation, great view of the Harbor and Potomac River, magnificent decor and atmosphere, wonderful customer service and just a great authentic Asian experience. They offer warm towels before and after dinner, which is an added treat. Reservations strongly encouraged....

“They Make a Mean XO Shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This place is nice, and prices are par for the course at National Harbor. Try the Shrimp in XO Sauce. It's hard to find good XO, and they do it very right!

“Harbor view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Grace's offers a unique Asian experience in a slightly overdone interior, but great views of the Harbor and setting sun over the Potomac River. On the pricey side, but excellent flavors, sauces, and presentation.
