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.

Aside from the lengthy wait, everything was wonderful! Everything was nice and clean, and socially distanced. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing, and the chocolate cake was outstanding!
Everything was great. Service, food and seating.
Service was amazing and fast! Food was very delicious.
Amazing meal and great service!
As a girl who grew up in the south, I would have to say I was supremely disappointed with the food at Grace’s. Yes, it’s presented as a sort of nouveau southern cuisine, but come on! It’s nowhere close. The side of corn was inedible. No one in the south makes corn like that. We sent it back. Mashed potatoes, almost like soup, with no flavor. The bread had the texture of something from the refrigerated section of Kroger’s. I could go on, but point made, I hope. I wouldn’t recommend Grace’s to anyone.
Great service by Angel. Food terrific as always. Will be back when in Houston.
As always, Grace’s was amazing. I have a couple of go-to restaurants in the area when I want a guaranteed good meal with no fuss. Grace’s is on that list.
Great ambiance, food and service.
I think $11 is a bit pricey for a mimosa. A $7 price points makes more sense. An offering of a carafe that provides 4 servings for $28 is a viable option. Mimosas should not be the price of a cocktail the supplies are inexpensive and cost mere seconds to make no mixology skills needed.

Had entree from the restaurant month so maybe I should have ordered from the regular menu. Tried the ribeye with mashed potatoes. Ribeye was just okay, a little tough and the potatoes were instant, it seemed. The drinks, appetizers and salad with blue vinaigrette dressing were on point!!! Sat outside, noisy table next to us, but not too bad. I'll go back and try something from the regular menu to get a better feel for how good the food may be. All in all, an okay experience.
Excellent, dined from Houston Restaurant week menu.
Still great service and food...social distance only full effect
It is ok, food is salty. They included tip to the bill, even only party of 2
The food was amazing and the service was awesome
Everything was great. The meals here are always consistently excellent as typical of a Carabba’s establishment. One can always count on it....
Best food as always
The food and our server were excellent. Given the current COVID issues, I was a little surprised and somewhat taken aback by what appeared to be a lack of social distancing. It was crowded and there were people all over the place.
Grace's is always a great place to go eat and socialize! It was my birthday and it was a nice setting and food is always delicious!
Great service great food great everything Very clean restrooms very clean place
I love it here! My favorite brunch spot.
Jace was an excellent server. Very attentive and punctual with all our needs. Jace also provided excellent recommendations.
Beef Stroganoff with home made noodles! Deserts that have to be taken home because they are so big. Great atmosphere. We love coming here.
Great service and food. Love this place. Always a great time eating here!
All of Carrabba's restaurants pay strict attention to Covid precautions. I feel completely safe in all of them.
Great food and great service. Nice outdoor patio with tables appropriately spaced for social distancing. All staff wore masks and gloves.
Great food and service!!!111111111111111111111111111
Great as usual! Their protocol during the virus also makes me comfortable to dine in.
Our server was great and we had a whole dining room to ourselves. It was so peaceful. I hate this for all the restaurants though. The baked potato dip is the best thing ever!
Excellent service, facilities, food options, food quality...
My husband’s red snapper was over cooked.
Our waiter, Read, was fantastic. He was very familiar with the menu, even though he had only been working there for a few weeks. He had a great smile and was very personable
Great meal though they forgot a side dish I ordrrrf.
I came there about once a month to get the pork chop and eggs for brunch. On this occasion my pork chop was overcooked. Pointed it out to waiter and asked him if he thought it was overcooked. He asked me to cut it and see, which I couldn’t do because it over cooked. Figured he would replace it and bring me a different pork chop that wasn’t over cooked. Instead he left me with the over cooked pork chop and brought a 1/4 of pork chop (I guess he assumed that’s what park of my pork chop was over cooked). I looked at him shook my head and finished my brunch. Doubt I’ll be back to one of my fav restaurants after that.
We had a great overall experience! The restaurant made sure everyone practiced social distancing, and everyone was masked that came to the table. Our server was awesome, and the food was delicious!
Exceptional food and amazing service!
Always good and consistent. Our “go to” place. Great variety.
Great food, great staff, excellent cooks, great people, and very clean.
Nysime the waiter was amazing, he was very attentive and prompt. Friendly and helpful with trying new food items that we’ve never had.
The shrimp stuffed poblano pepper was excellent.
