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.

The waiter gave us menus, then disappeared. Busboy came by and saw we had no water and brought us some and then said he would get our waiter-wonderful busboy returned and took our order. Food was good and there were several empty tables. We had poor service the whole time and have eaten here many times. Other waiters worked tables near us but never ours. Another table tried to get a check and we watched one person go to the front desk to get check. This was Sunday night at 6:30 pm after the Houston Marathon. This has to be a fluke or a problem with an individual waiter as it is not typical for any Carrabbas restaurant.

This place is fantastic! My hubby and i ordered the baked potato dip with homemade chips for an appetizer - excellent. Since the appetizer was so big we split an entree. Food was great, service very attentive, ambiance busy and vibrant. My only complaint was the table we were seated at. It was in the room with bar in the middle of the room. Table was really small. Chairs were really comfortable however. We will return!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our soups (chicken tortilla and gumbo) and salads (Caesar and Toni's Kale). I'd brought friends who'd never been and we will all be back. Thanks!

The atmosphere was great but the food was not very good. It was average at best so the price point doesn’t make sense.

Another stellar experience at our favorite restaurant. From the moment we walked in and the kind, charming hostess asked if we wanted to be seated in the bar where it's quiet, we were pleased to be at Grace's. Excellent food, combined with attentive and pleasant service make Grace's a must visit. The menu has something for everyone and it's all prepared to perfection.

This was my third visit to Grace's and I will definitely return for a fourth visit! This time I ordered Maw Maw's Pot Roast, mashed potatoes and a side of very well seasoned (and tasting) green beans. I was disappointed that the pot roast was not more tender - in fact, it was a bit tough, despite being cooked perfectly. Sometimes you just get a bad cut of meat. The mash was delicious - I ALWAYS salt my potatoes and didn't need to do anything to these - they were delicious! I have to mention our table split a couple of bottles of "house" Pinot Noir that went perfectly with my meat dish - wish I had the name of that tasty wine.

The table split two large servings for dessert - the bread pudding and the carrot cake - BOTH amazing and devoured quickly by a group of people who weren't sure they could eat dessert. If you haven't been, GO, they have so many delicious dishes the kitchen staff prepares with expert care for every dish. And I cannot close without thanks to the waitstaff - I have never had bad service here and genuinely enjoy the table service these folks provide.

Always love coming to Graces for Brunch. The grits are my favorite and have to Ofer every time.
Katelyn is such a sweet person and remembers our names every time. Guess we’ve become one of those regulars.
Love sitting in a cozy booth nestled in the bar area...little hidden secret.
Thank you to Graces for being one of my favorite places

The food at Grace’s was delicious and we were glad to get a decent reservation time! The service was very slow and unorganized even thought the restaurant didn’t appear to be very busy. I will definitely like to come back for breakfast one day though.
