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.

Holy cow this dinner was delicious! I had given my husband a choice between here or a Brazilian steakhouse. He knew I had been wanting to try Grace’s so he chose Grace’s and he was literally giddy after eating his dinner and he cannot wait to go back! The drinks, appetizers, and entrees were blow-your-mind delicious!! The jalapeño gravy and the frozen mimosa were the star of the show. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Wait staff very friendly and extremely helpful with food and wine recommendations. Arrived at 530 pm and my dining partner didn't arrive till 610 pm. Despite that I was not rushed or pushed at all by the staff.
Stuffed Creole Chicken was delicious and the desert.... baileys like milkshake topped off a great evening.

I had the chicken and waffles. Always so perfectly seasoned and prepared and the sweet tea always refreshes.

Dinner was great and service attentive however we redeemed our points via open table for a $50 reward but did not receive it when we paid. The reward system in opentable is a bit difficult and since we redeemed but didn’t get the value I am now very hesitant to use this service again.

The food is always good here and service is very friendly. It gets a little noisy when the restaurant is full but I like the decor and general ambiance. The roast pork is amazingly delicious and tender. The beef stroganoff is rich and flavorful and the fried pork chop does not disappoint. Sweet, but very tart and almost frozen describes the perfect lemon icebox pie. The convenient valet parking is icing on the cake.

My sister, who is not easily impressed, came "into town" from the suburbs for lunch and was immediately impressed by the reception we received walking in the door. The service, the professionalism, the FOOD were all top notch. I frequent Grace's on a regular basis with my niece so it was no surprise to me but, to be able to impress my sister, is a feat. She wants to come back for a weekend brunch. Kudos. :-)

Great variety of food, cajun as well as traditional home cooking to nice steaks. I really enjoyed the history which is the charm of the restaurant. Stepping back in time a little. I love original restaurants and this is one. Pretty busy so service was a little slow but no big deal. I had cajun chicken two others had the roast dish and one had fried chicken all were very good. Prices were great also

The menu is extensive, so everyone could get exactly what they wanted. I appreciate that they also have kids menus. The dining area is quiet, so you can enjoy a private conversation with your party. Our waitress was amazing! We will definitely be back!

Our only complaint was less-than-attentive service. Empty beverage glasses for extended periods, almost no check-ins. But overall ok.

When visiting Houston one of my favorite places to have lunch is Grace’s. I always order the Caesar salad, shrimp burger and a lemon drop martini. The Caesar salad is one the best I’ve had. The fresh croutons and dressing are amazing. I also love that the fact that whole not ground shrimp are used for the burger. The pretzel bun is the perfect combination and compliment for the burger. Sometimes, it is hard to find a restaurant that makes a consistent drink that is not the case with Grace’s. The lemon drop martini is always consistent during each and every visit.

I had my two sons straight after baseball practice and they were both hangry. I’ve never been to Grace’s, and as soon as I walked in I immediately regretted going there with 2 starving boys after they had been playing ball for a few hours. The staff and our waiter couldn’t have been more kind and welcoming in accommodating us. We had a wonderful family meal, both boys loved everything they ordered with clean plates all around. We will definitely go back here and we will spiffy up a bit next time, lol!

Grace's has a large variety of meals to choose from and the selection that I picked was delicious. The service was exceptional and our server was so attentive. We were celebrating a special occasion and couldn't have asked for a better place. I look forward to returning there in the future.

We had an amazing and awesome time. I celebrated my birthday with five of my college friends, and we truly had a great time. Our waiter Lowell was attentive, informative, and fun. Two other waiters pitched in to help, and we also hit it off with them. The food was delicious, including the pork chops, fried chicken, and fresh fish. The desserts - red velvet cake, lemon icebox, and ice cream sundae - were impeccable!
