I have been to this awesome restaurant many times and have been happy with their consistently tasty food each time. I have gone with a few friends to a large party of family members, and they have been very accommodating. All their dishes are excellent although the salt content is high. Their martinis with ginger/wasabi stuffed olives are excellent as... More

You cannot deny good food and after Urban Pirates we went here for lunch. It is dark (like date night dark) but they have floor to ceiling windows of the river. Food was great, portions were filling and everybody took home a box. Not really a "family restaurant" but it was a good experience for the kids to freshen up... More

I stopped in for lunch and ordered their special sushi combo. It was so very tasty and it also came with a miso soup which was nice sized. The decorations or shall I say antiquities in this place are amazing and there are so many to look at. We had a nice window view overlooking the Potomac River and our... More

First, the chicken lettuce wraps and whole rockfish were excellent, as was Land Sky Sea Delight. The crispy beef was a little less than crispy when it arrived, which indicates it sat in the kitchen for a little while. They offer a little purse stool, but I prefer when I cannot keep my purse next to my hip, to place... More

Located close to the Gaylord resort in National Harbor, this restaurant has some pretty Asian style furniture. A huge golden Buddha welcomes you from the lobby. The servers are dressed in traditional Chinese clothes and Red is the dominant color for the uniforms and the furniture. Some of the decorations are a bit tacky. The entree prices are on the...

This place was so good we went back twice within our stay of 4 days. The food was awesome as were the drinks. The first time we went for the brunch and the price was unbelievable. We sat at the bar because it was crowded. It is right across the street from the Gaylord Hotel and Resort where we were... More

Very elegant with lots of cultural artifacts to see: including a large 300 ft. Buddha in the main lobby. Friendly staff, great food and service. Nice bar area too. The owner (Grace) is often there and is very hospitable. A must see!

The food at Grace's Mandarin was fantastic and the selection was unlike any Asian restaurant I'd been to. We went for a family brunch and were very happy with the entire experience. Our wait staff was attentive and informative, the restaurant was decorated delightfully and the view of the harbor was beautiful from the 2nd floor. We had our choice... More

We were a party of four. There was considerable time between when we sat down (8pm) to when someone took our order (845pm), to when we receive our food (930pm). My friends had an easy time ordering, and usually at restaurants I ask what the best vegetarian dish she could recommend. She came back about 15 mins later and forgot... More
