When owner Johnny Carrabba set out on his next restaurant venture, he knew his vision would include the fond memories he had of his dear grandmother Grace Mandola. Grace, also known to the family as Mama, was a Sicilian woman born to immigrant parents in Louisiana. She had a flair for cooking, hospitality, and deep faith.

She was known to make bread from scratch every Saturday for her legendary three-hour Sicilian Sunday lunches; and, her newly established family roots in Louisiana added interesting flavors to her home cooked meals. The entire Mandola family, including her five children and fourteen grandchildren, was regularly greeted in her home with smells of warm bread, well brewed sauces and homemade soups. It was around her table that her family learned the true meaning and value of relationships, friendships and good food. These memories are realized when one walks into Johnny Carrabba’s new restaurant, Grace's.

Our waiter Donnie was amazing. he made suggestions to different foods based on our answers and the food was amazing and so was the dessert. Grace's was my first time visiting and it was for our anniversary. I can say we were not disappointed at all. We look forward to another visit soon.

Outstanding service from Louis on Thursday night. Food was Very good overall (Steak Frites for me and Creole stuffed Chicken with cream sauce for the wife), but the BBQ Shrimp appetizer was superb! Definitely going to return to try other items on the menu.

I'd been to Grace's a couple of times a year ago and it was a logical choice for a birthday dinner for a family member. I was disappointed with the visit. While our waiter worked hard, the waiter was clearly stretched with the number of assigned tables. The wait for our food was unreasonable, perhaps 30 minutes. My daughter wanted the short ribs, but by our 6:15 reservation, they were out of that item. The chicken fried chicken was only warmish and as a result, the crust was unusually dough-y. The price of the slice of the birthday cake with candle was a rich $10. I'm hoping the meal was an aberration for an otherwise outstanding restaurant, but based on this experience and Houston's dining options, I'll not be returning.

This is one of our favorite places to come. We live in Sugar Land, so we don't come as often as we would like. But we always try to bring new people to the place.

It was our first time to Grace's and it did not disappoint. They sat us in one of the rounded booths in the bar area, and we found it to be very comfortable. Our waiter was fabulous, answered all of our questions and we never have to seek his attention, he was always attentive. We highly recommend the Bake Potatoe Dip, as for our other choices they were delicious too.....All and all we enjoyed our visit and will definitely go back...

We loved it my husband felt extra special on his birthday. They went out of their way to get us ice cream to make out chocolate shake to go with our carrot cake and it wasn’t even in the building they had to go across the street. The food was delicious and they followed my instructions to put us in the 1st Room in a cozy romantic spot. We were in front of the wood burning fireplace. Great job overall we will be back !

What a delightful brunch Saturday at Grace's! The seating was a little tight to due to big party and my chair kept getting bumped but the food made up for it. We had chicken and waffles, baked potato dip eggs, sausage and potatoes - all delicious! Lastly, the swirl mimosa is the best frozen brunch drink I've every had. Yum!
