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.

Fathers Day. Great experience. The waiter was excellent; very attentive and helpful. Very busy day but the GM was extremely organized and watched over Operations and Service.
Father’s Day brunch
The food was wonderful
Flank or hanger steak was cooked beautifully, but had so much marinade/garlic that it was hard to drink enough water. Could hardly finish what would have been a lovely steak. Short rib was really good. But there was not enough rib. The wine we ordered - out.
I think this place could go to 4 stars with a little more attention to detail. I would and will return.
My girl friend and I want to celebrate fathers day with ours spouses, and decided to check out Grace's as suggested by a church friend and enjoyed every bit of it.
The experience was great, we will be back. Just wished they did not run out of the carrot cake😫
Lovely evening. Outstanding waiter. On an oyster plate one oyster was not good and the price of the appetizer was deleted from our bill. Food was delicious and innovative.
This was my first visit at the venue, the others in the party had previously visited the restaurant; we truly enjoy the whole experience. We had a time limit and the staff helped us meet our time table. Thank you for such a wonderful experience and I look forward to future visits!
This was my first visit dining in, and the staff was excellent! The food OMG DELICIOUS!
We had reservations for 6 at 11am on a Sunday. Food was adequate. Restaurant was noisy. Our waiter took a long time to take our drink order and then took forever to take our food orders plus he left the table without taking one person's order at the table. We had to flag him down to get the remaining person's order. We had to ask for the complimentary rolls for the table. Also we ordered a cappucino and he forgot to bring it. We were credited for the cappucino.
Never a bad experience. Food was fantastic and so were the frozen pomegranate swirl mimosas. Definitely a stop I have to make everytime I come to Houston.
Food was excellent as usual. The only con to this visit was that the restaurant reported us as a no show to open table when we were in fact there for our reservation even before time. Open table contacted me and we told them it was a mistake and that we actually did dine at our reserved time and I assume they took care of it. Other than that I totally recommend Grace’s. The food is superb.
My fiancé and I went to Grace's to celebrate my birthday. We had a wonderful meal and our waiter was great. He even brought me ice cream with a candle AND sang to me, which was completely unexpected. My fiancé ordered the steak frites and said the ribeye was better than some steakhouses. Also, his fries were seasoned perfectly! I ordered the creole stuffed chicken breast with mac and cheese and brussels sprouts. Absolutely outstanding. We will be back again for another date night. Can't wait!
Grace's never disappoints - the food and service are stellar. The environment is lovely and parking easy. Winnner winner.
1st time and wow will we be back! Exceptional and our waitress Casey was terrific. We have all made plans to return. We even bought the cookbook.
Desserts were especially great!
Too much air conditioning and quite noisy. Excellent service. Food didn’t live up to raves I’ve heard.
Food was great! The prices are a little high, but it is a nice place to go with family!
We had a great afternoon for lunch and dessert. The area was perfect for us to talk about business.
My friend and I tried to sit inside for lunch, but was so LOUD. We found a spot on the patio, that was way more pleasant and we could hear each other. Love the tuna stack!
Wonderful. My new favorite restaurant.
My husband ordered the pork chops with beans and his food was cold when they served it to him. He sent it back and it was better the second time. He was almost finished eating when the server finally brought out the bread. I had a shrimp sandwich with corn and it was good.
Bobby was great! Offered good suggestions and went extra mile to serve us. Chicken biscuit was crispy and tasty.
Food was delicious. Our server, Oren, was great.
I forgot to mention in my previous response that this restaurant, unfortunately, is very noisy. They are very accommodating to seat you at a "quiet" table, but it's so noisy you cannot enjoy conversation. Just eat and run.
Grace’s was awesome! I met a girlfriend there for brunch. We had a 1045 reservation.. We were seated promptly.. The wait staff was great and the food was delicious.. I will definitely be back again and highly recommend it.
It took a few minutes to be recognized as the waiter was tied up with a large table, but he apologized and was very attentive thereafter. The food is hearty, so we had salads and split an entree, which was perfect. There is a $3 split plate charge, but the entree came out already split, individually plated, and I think with more than a split serving of vegetables, so we didn't mind. We had the chicken fried chicken, and it was great. The jalapeno gravy adds a special spark! The waiter asked if we were happy with the usual sides, so we substituted spinach for the black-eyed peas my husband doesn't like at no extra charge. We've eaten here before and never been disappointed by the high quality food.
Great food, great service.
Our entree selections were all very flavorful and delicious. The amount of food was sufficient, not too much, but just enough. The waiter was pleasant and accommodating. All of the staff were very courteous and friendly. Love the bartender.
Service was outstanding, perfect combination of attention and staying in the background during a business meeting over lunch.
Great service and food
Our waitress was the Best and did an awesome job been that it was our first time coming to the restaurant. Her name is Casey, Jo.D
Thanks again for outstanding customer service
Food and service was excellent! I will definitely be back.
Our 1st time here. The food was excellent. I loved the lemon drop martini. We'll definitely be back!
Great food and attentive service makes for a wonderful dining experience.
Excellent, friendly service and great comfort food in inviting surroundings.
Always a great experience. Wonderful specials. I go at least 3x a month.
I absolutely love Grace’s! The food and cocktails are always really good. The only issue I had during this visit was the time it initially took for our waiter to come to our table. We waited about 8 minutes, which in my opinion, is too long. We were ready to order our entree by the time the waiter came to take our drink order. After that bad start, everything else was fine, from the service to the food.
Our food came out after a group that came after us and they ordered some of the same meals. The chicken fried chicken tasted burnt and the fried pork chop did as well.
Went for Mother’s Day Weekend and the Service was fast and good. Excellent customer service thanks Grace for making my mothers day weekend nice.
My mom had the fried catfish and shrimp platter and it was nice, fresh and crispy just the way she liked it.
I had the stove chicken breast with crabmeat and it was excellent. Chicken breast with crabmeat melted in your mouth. The food was Season very well.
Brunch with my 2 daughters to celebrate Mother's Day. Grace's was a wonderful venue. Great food, service and atmosphere.
