We frequent this location often and decided to go for Valentine’s Day. It was the typical crowd. The food was not as good as it typically is and quite overpriced for the night ($200 without gratuity) for two with a prefixed menu. We did have a nice window seat.

It was a nice night. I wish management had given the ladies a rose. It would have spoken volumes on Valentine’s night.

Grace’s Mandarin is my favorite restaurant. The food is fabulous. I took two of my granddaughters ( 14 & 18 years old) there after seeing The Alvin Ailey Dance Theotre. They both thoroughly enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere. The service is always excellent!!

Excellent. The bar staff (serving the tables there too) was very attentive and nice. The food was great. Get the calamari, crispy beef, and chicken/beef fried rice.

My husband and I came here for dinner before a show at the MGM Theater. Staff were extremely pleasant and professional . Food was very good. Service was perfect. The timing of everything was exactly as it should be. Prices were fair. They were quite reasonable compared to many other restaurants in this area. Some are outrageous! We had the crabcakes (all meat, no filler) and shrimp pad thai. Delicious! Good portions, atmosphere, & experience.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and after reading reviews I was hesitant. The only reason why I went there was because it was the only reservation I could get before the comedy show we were going to see. I went back and forth reading tons of reviews and now I think, "why did I waste my time??!!" The place was AMAZING!!

We had a 7:15 reservation for a party of 4. We waited about 15 more minutes which we didn't mind. The hostess asked us if we wanted to be seated on the lower level which is more casual/informal because of the bar. We opted to wait a little longer to sit upstairs. We had a great window seat with a view of the illuminated ferris wheel.

We all had excellent food. Even my friend, who doesn't like Chinese, enjoyed her Mandarin Chicken. We had awesome passionfruit drinks, crab rangoons, and the crispy beef was awesome! My husband enjoyed his yellowtail, scallops and duck. The portions were perfect. Don't expect huge portions like at take-out places. Yum yum! So glad we went.

This was a Saturday night gathering of friends during Restaurant week. The place was packed. It wasn’t too loud, remained elegant and the service was outstanding! Every menu item ordered by every person in our party got rave reviews. We will definitely be back!
