    We love going to Grace on a Friday night. It has a laid back atmosphere but top notch service and food. This time, we had Eddie as a server and he was fabulous as usual. The veal & pork pasta dish was lovely. We also ordered the thai chicken spring rolls. They were such a great combination of flavors and just enough to whet your appetite. We also had the grilled salmon with wild rice and fresh sautéed spinach. A perfect meal!

    This was my 5th occasion dining here over the years & I believe the food has improved with each visit. The first few times I ate here, the food was a little above average, but we came back due to ambiance & location. Most recently, the food has been absolutely delicious! I'm not sure if there's a new chef or what. I was also very impressed with our server on my most recent visit. My only gripe is that we last dined for a birthday celebration & the birthday guest wasn't given anymore than a "happy birthday" & that's after I told the server of the occasion (I'd included that info when making the reservation). For the price point, a small scoop of ice cream for the birthday guest or something along those lines would have been very nice.

    Grace 17.20 is a wonderful restaurant. It's location makes it tough to find if you are not already familiar with it because it is among stores in an outdoor mall. The food is excellent. My wife had the shrimp and grits which were creamy and full of flavor. I had the flank steak which was also tasty. They have an outside fireplace. We opted to sit inside this time but we're definitely going to sit by the fireplace the next time we come back.

    The food food was fresh, tasty, and plentiful. My husband and I ordered Covina with Brussel sprouts. The restaurant was able to honor my husband's meal restriction request and the food was flavorful. Our waiter made sure we had everything we needed and he was very attentive. Although we did not order dessert, our waiters tantalizing descriptions of the selections made it very difficult to turn them down. Next time we dine at Grace 1720 we will have to indulge. We did take home a loaf of the coffee cake which was moist and delicious.

    This is a favorite of ours. We know this restaurant is consistently excellent. From Appetizers to Desserts, you will not be disappointed. Tonight's "Special" included a Pumpkin Risotto that, hopefully, will be a Fall addition to the menu. The Caramel Cheesecake was awesome, maybe the best we've ever eaten. Oh, let's not forget the Fried Green Tomatoes Appetizer! The wine was excellent with a less than expected price. The wait staff is very attentive and discreet - very professional people who know what they are doing. From inside dining to dining outside near the fireplace, it's a lovely experience. Take a loaf of Pumpkin Bread home to be reminded of a delightful dining experience as you enjoy your morning coffee or, perhaps, tea!

    We had a terrific time at lunch, as we have come to expect: delicious food impeccably served in nice surroundings. But the newest addition to the menu, an appetizer, really is over the top wonderful! Barbara has added an individual pate that is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS that everyone should try. We would love to see these on sale as take-home items (like the Pumpkin Bread loaves), perhaps in a larger dish, to serve at holiday parties.

    We came here for dinner on a Saturday. I ordered the salmon with wild rice and my boyfriend ordered a steak. The asparagus and broccoli were perfectly cooked (grilled to be exact), as were both of our proteins. I had a lovely cocktail to start (the Grace Collins) and a glass of King's Estate Pinot with dinner. I do wish their cappuccino machine was functioning, however, but the coffee was very good. Another slight complaint (although we did not finish our bread) is that they charge if you order a refill on their bread basket. I can see why people would want to as they have a pumpkin slice bread that is excellent. Our server was very personable. The kitchen made one mistake with my boyfriend's entree, which was rectified quickly.

    We have been to Grace many times over the years and it is always wonderful. Their outdoor patio is the perfect place to dine when the weather is good. The staff is knowledgeable and the service is first rate. The menu changes so there is always something new and tasty to try.

    As the cooler evening start to arrive the patio and outside fireplace are great. Our server Eddie is great. I just wish they would change up the menu a bit. Better app selection and maybe a cheese plate or meat and cheese would be nice. The menu is limited and has not changed very much at all. It is a very safe American menu. I also wish they would not roll their tableware and use butter wrapped in foil ... its like a dinner. They place can be so much better with just a few small changes to the menu and table service.

    Wow what a great place! The decor is wonderful - feels like you are in Europe not at a shopping center. We sat outside in the most comfortable outdoor chairs and enjoyed excellent service and food. The bread basket had their signature pumpkin bread that was to die for. My friend bought a loaf to take home. I had the crab cake and a Caesar salad that were amazing and my friend got the fish wrap that was out of this world and stuffed full of fish. The side of green beans were even perfection. We could barely finish. Best all around dining experience I've had in a long time. Prices were definitely worth every penny. Can't wait to go back!

    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?

    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.

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!!
