    Bread was good but meager amount, served with foiled melted butter pats. (Butter in foil??) Salad was ample and good, although a few brown spots made me question freshness. "Seared" tuna entree was the real disapointment. Eight ounce piece of tuna was cut in three big chucks instead of being sliced into thin layers and nicely layered on plate. The tuna was not seared, it wasnn't even browned, but tanned. And since it must have been pulled from the refigerator and not placed on a very hot pan, there was no crust and the inside was cold. It was "thrown" together with barely cooked tomatos and over-cooked soggy fingerling potatos, all of it served at room temperature save for the tuna which was cold. Where was the chef?

You can actually have a nice conversation without yelling. I love the patio area. Grace 17:20 has been around for quite a while now and never disappoints.

    I was seriously looking forward to trying this place out and I'm not one to give negative reviews. This was a business lunch. I expected more with the Zagat rating. The mushroom soup was good, not wonderful. I ordered Salmon, fresh fish is not supposed to smell fishy. Everyone at the table could smell my food which is not supposed to happen on a Friday. We ordered the shrimp and grits, there was a low heat level and there was no andouille sausage. The other person ordered a burger with twice cooked fries. The fries were undercooked. Customer ordered the black/bleu salad steak was to be rare and it was medium rare. Unfortunately having a short window for our lunch we did not have time to send anything back.

    We sat outside on a beautiful sunny September afternoon! It was like being in Italy with the comfy chairs, umbrella tables, ambiance, great wine, good food and friends! I had a spinach salad with cranberries and goat cheese............with salmon (to die for)! It was a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon with a dear friend.

    We shared a Caesar salad. It was perfectly dressed. Too many overdressed salads in Atlanta. My husband had the pan roasted chicken breast, which as incredibly tender. The sweet and sour bacon sauce was amazing and brought the whole dish together. I had the crab cakes; fresh, no bread fillers and delicious. We ordered drinks of specialty drink menu. Well made and bartender flexible in tweaking drink to accommodate special requests. Cozy bar area if you need to wait. We will be back!!

    A group of friends from church went, and we were all really impressed with the food, the service, everything. We could not stop talking about how good it was. So when my parents visited a few days later, I took them, and they had the same reaction. I've been raving about it online too. Great food, great staff, lovely setting.

    Our week-night evening at Grace was delightful! Decisions, decisions - Spring Rolls or Fried Green Tomatoes? The generous entree portions combined with the many selections make for more decisions! But PLEASE, don't forget DESSERT! The Caramel/Sea Salt /Cheesecake is NOT to be missed!!! Oh, and I completely forgot to mention the wonderful wine list. Also, the cocktails aren't shabby either! A meal at Grace 17:20 is a dining experience whether you dine at lunch, dinner, or Sunday Brunch. Don't miss it!

    We treated our daughter and son-in-law to lunch at Grace 17.20 on Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was full with three large tables celebrating a large birthday lunch. Nevertheless, our service was excellent, (thanks, Michael), the food was very impressive and the atmosphere was perfect. They offer a couple of brunch specials on Sundays. I had the quiche and a wonderful apple and jicama salad. We're in the neighborhood and Grace has become a 'go-to' place for a good, elegant meal.

    My visit to Grace 17.20 was a spur of the moment with a special person. So when I went to my OpenTable Android App and browsed the local restaurants, this restaurant stood out and fast! But then when I arrived at the restaurant and entered the door, we were floored at the caliber of quality we saw applied to the furniture and ambiance of this restaurant. I have made it a promise to myself to visit this restaurant everytime I visit the ATL. Thank you OpenTable on another successful reservation!

    I took coworkers from out of town. Everyone enjoyed the spring roll appetizer, mixed green or spinach salad and their entree (shrimp and grits, grilled flat-iron steak and a lamb pasta dish), along with a nice wine. Service was attentive, and the patio was a great place to get fresh air after a day in meetings.

    I would like to give this restaurant another try, I've heard such great things about it. There were 2 in our party, we made reservations and were able to sit outside which was great except for the tiny gnats oh and the chair was still very wet from earlier rain which I didn't realize until I got up to leave and my pants were soaked :( I ordered the organic chicken with bacon dressing. The chicken was a little dry, the green beans were very undercooked for my taste, the blue cheese mac-n-cheese was great. My chocolate martini was perfect. The bread basket is good, one of them more of a pumpkin/spice dessert cake was super yummy with my coffee at the end! The shrimp bisque was very good, I would have loved some crackers though.

    We went here for our anniversary. The service was responsive, but not pushy. The food was very good, but not really outstanding. I had the strip steak, which was the better of the two dishes, while my wife had the eye of round steak, which wasn't as well cooked and lacked the flavor of the strip, but did have a delicious mushroom sauce. The place has a very pleasant ambiance, a step up from casual, but not overly formal, either. Great for a nice night out or a drink and dinner with friends after work. Also, an excellent choice of wines; not an extensive list, but one with a nice variety of all the major notes.

    Hands-down, Grace is always spot-on when it comes to their service and their food. I've never had a bad experience at Grace, and Friday evening was no different. Andy was our service associate, and he was warm and friendly, and made great recommendations for our table. He didn't miss a beat. And all of our meals (there were 4 in our party) were superb. The new fried green tomatoes appetizer was fantastic. Five stars on everything !

    We had gone to Grace a few times for lunch and about a year ago for dinner, at which time it was great. It is a beautiful restaurant and the patio is very nice. This time, however, things did not go well from the beginning. First, they tried to refuse a scoutmob on the basis that I booked through open table, which was only a reservation; I did not even get dining points, which no one could explain. Then the wine list was completely different from the one on the website, so they don't update that. We worked all that out and finally ordered. I made clear I wanted very little salt. My salmon was saltier than any I have had anywhere. They did not take it off the bill. I was very disappointed with the whole experience, and will not return.

    We have come to expect nothing but the best at Grace 17.20 and Saturday evening did not disappoint. Service, as always, is perfect. This evening, which was a spur of the moment decision, the food was marvelous. My crab cake appetizer was perfect - lots of crab meat with only the minimum other ingredients required to hold it together, perfectly prepared and served with an excellent sweet caper remoulade sauce. We had the evening specials for our main course. my wife's tenderloin served with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a blue cheese sauce was perfect, as was my yellow fin tuna served atop grilled vegetables.

    Dined on 6/26/2014
    We had a business dinner here, and we enjoyed it. The staff put us in a corner with a window, and it was quiet enough to have a good conversation. Everything we had was good, and the service was timely but not interrupting. The only negative is that this place is hard to find, even once you get into the shopping area, and parking nearby is very limited; two of us had to walk some distance, but as long as you don't mind walking, there is enough parking in the area. The window looked out onto a nice terrace with a big outdoor fireplace, and I suspect that in the spring and fall that is a very popular area.
