Excellent Food, ok serviceI have been at this restaurant several times before and this last weekend the food was excellent as usual, however the service was borderline satisfactory. Maybe there were not enough servers or bad timing. The other 3 or 4 times I have been there it has been overall excellent. I'll try it again to confirm.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Vacation SurpriseIt's after 8:00, no reservations anywhere, and a 2500 plus convention is the hotel across the street. We took a chance with Grace's Mandarin. What a pleasant surprise. We asked for a quiet table and was promptly seated upstairs in a quiet booth against the far wall. Perfect. Started with the Calamari. Very tasty. Followed with two sushi rolls, Hot and Sour soup, and Szechuan Green Beans. All very good. Finished with the Berry Cheesecake. This was a little gem of a dining experience. We liked it so much, we went back within 3 days. I highly recommend this restaurant.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy wife and I made a reservation for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Grace’s took note it was our anniversary and helped make our night special. This was one of our more memorable anniversary dinners.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Date Win!Decided to pick this spot for a first date since my date loves Asian food and I wanted to go somewhere a bit more above just your average dine-in Asian place that was not in the realm of a PF Changs-type place. Some place unique. And hands down Grace's Mandarin didn't disappoint at all! It was awesome! We both loved the food, the decor, and the view looking out into the harbor from the second story is amazing during sunset (I used OT ahead of time to email a request to sit near a window- strongly recommend). They had a good selection of dishes for a fair price and there was just the right amount of food. Overall I had an amazing time and it was a great start to our date night! A solid place to take a lady out for sure!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of 8Graces Mandarin was an excellent for us to bring our clients to. It delivered both a sophisticated atmosphere, as well as a delectable menu. We had a large party, and we were comfortable accommodated, and our server eagerly provided suggestions for both sharing plates, and individual courses. Our guests were impressed by the scenery, wine selections, and overall ambience.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Place For EveryoneThis is a great place to dine with family, friends or just to treat yourself for an evening out.

There isn't one thing I'd change about our meal there. The two highlights were the Calamari (best I've ever had - and I've had it in both Greece and Italy), and the Crab Rangoon appetizer - truly amazing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBig place with plenty of windowBig place with plenty of window seats overlooking the Potomac.

We'll definitely visit again.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale Chinese Foodupscale Chinese food with excellent service and great atmosphere. great venue for a special date night. buyer beware though prices are on the upper end and might catch some off guard. its a special occasion place for sure but worth every penny. recommend reservations on the weekend as its very popular. enjoy ... we did.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place.My first time dinning here was on my birthday last year.

It was awesome. I will definitely go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat scenic view of the water.Great scenic view of the water. Wait staff were fantastic. Food items can be a bit pricey but given the location that's understandable. The food was delicious from appetizer to main course. The calamari was cooked perfectly, practically melted in my mouth. The crab cake was huge, no filling there, all meat. Garage parking available on parallel street.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was great. theeverything was great. the service throughout dinner was fantastic, but then once we paid our check we never saw the waitress again. 3 friends dining together and we stayed another hour after paying for our meal; the waitress could have come by to fill our water and/or offer another drink or coffee.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner date...This was my first opportunity to dine here and this was an excellent dinner date. We had evening reservations and the lighting was perfect for relaxing after-work while transitioning to a somewhat more intimate mood as night fell. Food was a little pricey, however the prompt service, prompt food, and overall dining experience made it worth every penny - at least for us.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have visited on severalWe have visited on several occasions to include our anniversary last year. It was our turn to pick the restaurant for a group that rotates and we chose Grace's based on always having a pleasant experience and great food! Our guests were very happy about the choice!!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe appetizers were reallyThe appetizers were really good (crab rangoon and calamari). The sizzling beef was good, but the surf and turf was only so so (crab cake and lamp chops). My lamb was a bit undercooked. I asked for medium rare and it definitely was on the rarer side which made it a bit chewy and cold. I liked the red coverings they put over your coat, if you place your coat on the back of your chair. i'd like it even more if they gave me one. It seemed like everyone else in the room but me had gotten one. Nice idea though. Food was good, service was great, decor was great, but prices are a bit on the high end for the size of the entree. Definitely a bit overpriced.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat cocktails and good Sushi.Great cocktails and good Sushi. Fantastic views on 2nd floor.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was hot, flavorful andFood was hot, flavorful and nicely presented. We had a window seat overlooking the Potomac... nice.

Nice meal to end our visit to DC.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA group of friends met andA group of friends met and ate at Gracie's and truly enjoyed the experience. The food was really good. The service was excellent. I love the view of the water!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food of the tripWe three had a wonderful dinner! our waitress was excellent and timely. The head waiter or owner was a little spy-like with his roving eye and earpiece. Our purses had their own chairs!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI LOVE GRACE'SEvery visit is better than the last, wine was great, food was spectacular and the dessert to die for, if you haven't been yet, you are definitely missing out.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite places to eat. It's located in the National Harbor and has nice scenic views of the Potomac. The menu is a nice Asian fusion blend and the dishes are absolutely delightful and full of flavor. We highly recommend eating here.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM2md visit.. looking forward2md visit.. looking forward to next visit.. always a treat.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI had dinner there duringI had dinner there during a convention at next door Gaylord. The Korean seafood soup was too salty for my taste albeit the seafood in it was fresh and delicious. Peking duck bun was OK not memorable. Overall a decent oriental choice near Gaylord I would not go out of my way to dine there but will return if I am at Gaylord again .3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant but pricy.Great service, excellent menu, tasty food. All in all a great dining experience. Only criticism I can make is the prices are quite high for Chinese food. If you have an appetizer and entree along a cocktail or wine count on at least $50/person for dinner.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Birthday DinnerI enjoyed my birthday dinner. My night was very special.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
