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 Kory was very polite and helpful. He made our evening very enjoyable. He kept all our glasses full.
I was glad I made reservations looking at all the people that were waiting for a table. We were seated within minutes of our arrival. Our server Reid was an energetic young man that was on top of our needs. if my water glass went empty, he was there to refill it. Great service from this young man. The drinks, the appetizer, calamari and shrimp was excellent. I had the sausage stuffed chicken which excellent and my date had the chicken fried chicken, both were generous portions and the taste was great!
This was me & my Hubby’s first time at Grace’s. The ambience was great, service was great, and overall great food. We had the bbq shrimp for our appetizer- delicious, I had the chicken fried chicken for entree- it was good but a little too salty, my husband had sausage stuffed chicken- delicious, and for dessert choc cake- delicious. The cornbread they bring out is amazing. I had a lemon drop martini- yummmy and hubby had moscow mule and he said it was perfect. Our waiter, can’t rem his name...sorry, was very attentive. Overall great experience. We will definitely be back.
Our server was amazing and very accommodating. Honestly best service I have had in a minute. The calamari and shrimp appetizer was amazing. The cornbread was bomb. The drinks were nice and strong. One of them had a gnat in it but my server quickly replaced it. Our entrees were very meh. I had the stuffed chicken that had the crab in it. It was soo dry. But the carrots cake dessert saved the lackluster entree. If I were to return the appetizer and dessert would be my go to.
Bruce is an awesome waiter!! First time here. The quality of food, presentation and overall taste isn’t worth the price. Flavors are sub par. Great experience however.
My son loves this place so it gets four stars as average between what he would give them (a 5) and what I would give them (a 4). I would describe it as good, industrially prepared, Southern food. The outside seating is very pleasant and the cocktails quite enjoyable. Unfortunately, Kirby can be rather loud but it isn’t really that distracting.
It’s always perfect! Andy and John waited on us . We weren’t very hungry , just wanted a drink. We never feel like we’re imposing or taking up
Space. It’s our happy place!
Server was excellent, food was filling and delicious! Returned the next day.
I was excited to bring my sister foe her 1st time.
Great food, great service, staff acted like family.
Food was incredible as always. Chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans are the best around!
I have so much about Grace's and came when it originally open but the food was certainly not the same. I had the chicken sandwich and I have never had a bad chicken sandwich until I had this one. I also tried my friends BBQ shrimp and they were horrible. I am not certain what has changed but the food is not good.
You can’t go wrong with any menu item you choose. The Cajun Stuffed Chicken is my favorite!
The peppery onion rings were a great start to our meal. I loved the tortilla soup too. Dad liked the short ribs appetizer. French fries are thick cut "steak fries".
Grace's is the best; the food is consistently great!! Hats off to the chefs!!!
Everything was wonderful. The food and service was top notch. I made the best decision to host my sisters Birthday dinner at Grace's
Had to wait over 30 minutes even with a reservation.
Everything was great can't wait to be back.
Food was outstanding and delicious. Service was below standards
Birthday and service was great! The food was excellent also!
The food we ordered was delicious (short ribs for one, chicken pot pie for the other). Our service was attentive. It's always a good day to go to Grace's!
The food as usual was delicious but the service was absolutely the worst that we have ever encountered. It took over 40 minutes to get some bread and then we ordered but when we got our main meal the person that had ordered soup as an appetizer/part of the entrée did not get her entrée because the waitress did not write it down. So by the time she got her meal we were all finished. And addition, I specifically asked if there were any kind of social distancing meeting at least putting the tables further apart and that did not happen. It’s very disappointing since I love going to Gracies. I did tell the manager/person at the front about my experience and left my name and number but for some reason I felt it wasn’t necessary to contact me.
The service was AMAZING! We arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Our waiter Drew was the best. He was attentive to our needs and he was very friendly
First time ever going and had heard good things so decided to have a birthday dinner there, what a waste of money. Food was horrible and I’m not that critical but this was bad and i even told them it was for a birthday and nothing was ever mentioned about it again... never had that happen before. What’s the point in asking if it’s a special occasion if you’re not gonna acknowledge it once the guest arrives.
The best anniversary experience ever.
The food portion is sad, you pay that much to go out and dine. Our waiter was great
Every thing about this place was great. My family enjoyed their drink, dinner and ambiance. Each person order something different so we had the opportunity to try a variety of meals. We also order several drinks which were made to perfection. Dessert is always a must the carrot cake and salted caramel cakes are both delicious.
I ate there for the first time on Friday during lunch. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. And the interior of the restaurant was beautiful. Very impressed.
We’re here every Thursday and the food as well as the service is always excellent! We love us some Todd! Look forward to this weekly experience!❤️
Took my cousin for the first time. Food was great. Loved everything I had!
The restaurant is very nice and warm. The staff are very courteous. The menu is very diversified. There were 5 people in our group. All ordered something different on the menu. Everyone loved their food. A great place for lunch or dinner. Highly recommend.
It was a daughter father date and we really enjoyed and Corey our waiter was amazing
Delicious food everything was very well seasoned. The cornbread was a little cold but the server quickly replaced it for us. Very attentive server. I had the pleasure of enjoying the Creole stuffed chicken with crabmeat, mash potatoes and Brussel sprouts.
This was my first time dining here and it won’t be my last !! Thank you Grace’s for such a great experience.
Chicken was not fried all the way... literally bloody and no one came To table From management to apologize or offer anything. Server was great, drinks and sides were good. Beware of the chicken!
Our waiter Lewis was outstanding.
The food was amazing. I love their Aunt Margaret chicken. Super tender, juicy and fresh every time I order it. Everything was perfect, food, atmosphere, and environment. Lee up the good work!!
It is always a pleasure to see Todd our favorite waiter. Thursday’s are our hang out night. This time I got to sit at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartenders were very very nice! I enjoyed their company while I waited. I also noticed that you all have my absolute favorite tequila!!
We will be back for our regular Thursday! See you soon Todd! We love you! 🥰🥰🥰
Great atmosphere, good food, great times! I recommend everyone in Houston area to give it a try.
The service is always great and the food is always delicious. I'll be back!
Waiter was attentive and professional; food was delicious and everyone at the table had a different item from the menu.
