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.

I am so appreciative of the staff at Grace's. They went above and beyond for my family during Sunday Brunch. My elderly grandmother was visisting from out of town. She has some mobility issues, but the staff was very helpful and understanding and made sure she was accommodated and comfortable. You have no idea how much that meant to me. Thank you all so much!!!!
Great food and great service. We had a table of 8 and were primed for carrot cake for dessert but they ran out. I couldn’t believe it although Grace’s does have the best desserts in all of Houston!
Great food friendly environment!
From the moment you enter you are made to feel special. The food was delicious and the staff was excellent. We were able to enjoy our meal and were not rushed or made to feel like we had to leave once we were done eating. Will definitely recommend and will be back.
Food was great!!! Very Loud at lunch and the manager was NOT receptive to moving our table to a different area that wasn’t so loud.
She said the tables in the other area was for reservations. I had a reservation so didn’t see the reasoning. Very much a “not my problem” attitude with the manager.
The server was great and the food delicious.
Food was awesome. A friend and I went and it was her first experience. And she loved everything! In fact will be bringing her husband.
We chose to dine here for a Birthday dinner with best friend. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to have conversation.
First time to sit in the bar area...it was a nice relaxing atmosphere and the service was tremendous! Beef Stroganoff over homemade noodles is exquisite! Overall fantastic evening!
Outstanding meal and service. Each of us had a different item and all were great. Definitely a place to visit again.
Great service and delicious food. We will return with our 18 and 19 year old boys before they head off to school in August! Definitely a place to return to!
Food was good! Very crowded but making a reservation assured a table.
Mother in Law Birthday
Excellent as always
Awesome! This was only my second time, but it was as good as the first time.
Sharell Our bartender server was wonderful she gave his great ideas for what to eat and our drinks and she was fabulous and very friendly and that little bar area is just the best
Great place for friends to gather to share a special event and have a great time.
Delicious food, Knowledgeable staff friendly service. Terrific oysters.
Food was Great! The wait staff was pleasant & attentive. I’ll be back again. I’ve frequented before, however this was my first time eating when brunch items were not on the menu. The food was tasty & freshly prepared. They also have a BOMB pomegranate mojito.
I was visiting Houston and Grace was recommended. I really enjoyed my overall visit. My food was delicious, I hade the seafood platter.
Ned and the staff in the bar are always great.
We ate in the bar. Peter, the bartender, took care of us and did an excellent job
Amazing food. Great staff. Great parking. I even enjoyed the after dinner mints. Great place.
I always select Grace's as a restaurant to try. Took my aunt and father there for their first time and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Went on a Sunday for brunch and the food and service was great. You definitely need to make reservations. I had the wings and waffles and the frozen mimosa. I will go again soon to try some other entrees.
The food was amazing not the drink so much but everything was sooo good must try
Made a reservation well in advance for 2:30pm and requested a booth in the bar area, however our table was not ready. I honestly think they overlooked our request for a booth in the bar area being that this has never happened before. I’m also basing this off the fact that it seemed like the hostess had just noticed our request for a booth in the bar area for our reservation when we checked in upon arrival. It honestly seemed like an oversight on their part, but of course they’ll never admit that. We were not seated until 3:05pm. We did let the manager know, however it really didn’t seem like she cared. She attributed the wait to the rain. But again, we have eaten there several times, rain, sleet, or shine and have never incurred this problem. The manager did offer us a drink for our wait, which somewhat made me feel slightly better since it was a mimosa. The food was great as always, however I didn’t appreciate the wait. I think in the future the hostesses should pay closer attention to the table request included in the reservation to ensure the customer is taken care of appropriately in a timely manner.
I went one Saturday, so it was pretty busy. I didnt have to wait long and the server was very attentive.
Amazing service and even more amazing food!
I always enjoy Grace’s. Was a little disappointed in the serving portions from the brunch menu however it was good nonetheless. Our Server was very attentive but not overbearing.
We requested a quiet table for my Dad's 96th birthday celebration. We had an early dinner reservation on a weeknight. We were graciously welcomed and showed to a table in an alcove. Perfect. We had a wonderful server, Jose. All 5 in our party enjoyed our meal and our server. My water glass stayed filled, which I greatly appreciate. Everyone we encountered were pleasant, kind and attentive. My Dad commented how very much he enjoyed the evening.he loved the stuffed poblano pepper! He ususally is not very interested in meals now days, so this was a big hit! He talked about it for 2 days! We had the back room a year ago to celebrate a larger party for his 95th BIRTHDAY. That year all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed everything. We had 2 guests who were gluten intolerant and the restuarant easily accomodated them with no problem at all. Thank you again to the Carrabba's family for another enjoyable evening! Your service and food is consistently on point.
I did not know the Sunday brunch menu was much different that the weekday lunch menu. I was very disappointed in the brunch options and won’t go back for brunch. The weekday lunch options were superb and I’ll definitely go back for those!
Met friends for lunch and we were glad we were tucked in a corner where we could visit. Food and service great.
While Grace's is a high energy restaurant, I think it is WAY too noisy for a good conversation. I would prefer small spaces in this large restaurant.
A great find! Our waiter was fantastic and helpful. Food was excellent and unique. We’d go back for sure!
Had asked for quiet corner table weeks in advance & rechecked day of reservation & was told both times that my request would be met. Arrived & there was nothing that had been requested available. Poor Client service!
Great servers! The food was delicious! Will have to come again!
Always love going to Grace's, one of my favorite places to eat.
Loved the relaxed atmosphere and the food was exceptionally delicious!
Food was delicious! Our service was impeccable from the moment we walked in.
Everything was great.
