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.

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.

First the bad news - the selection I had my heart set in had been changed from the description in the menu. The server let me know ahead of time so there were no surprises BUT it was not nearly as good as the old version. It just didn’t feel like the ingredients meshed. The chicken was tender and well cooked but the stuffing in the side was very dry. And someone in the kitchen loves black pepper which was used WAAAAY to liberally in both the chicken dish and the green beans. (The beans were almost inedible and the leftovers WERE inedible as the pepper had time to meld into the dish)
On the bright side, our server was very attentive. Although his help on the menu was almost to read it to me. It wasn’t helpful - I can read but his heart was in the right place. He was very nice. Truly impressive though was the hostess. As we were leaving, she again wished my friend Happy Birthday BY NAME! And we had enjoyed a long dinner. That she remembered so long after we were seated was astonishing and we were both happily surprised.
All in all a lively evening and dinner

I go to Grace’s very often for brunch and my only complaint is that they automatically add 20% gratuity ONLY on Sunday. I’m not sure why this is. The food is always good and service is amazing. Their dinner menu is also amazing.

Grace’s food is so good! I ordered the Creole Stuffed Chicken and it didn’t disappoint. The mashed potatoes were perfect. For some reason my sautéed spinach seemed a little too salty/garlicky. I ordered banana pudding for the first time. It was delicious. The bananas were fresh, the pudding tasted homemade and the vanilla wafers were crisp! Perfect dessert! I also ordered a glass of Malbec. Very nice choice. Our waitress was excellent!!! She didn’t miss a beat.

The fried chicken was greasy.
Disappointed we couldn’t order fried okra, which we had always been able to order. We were looking forward to it.
Please add to your regular menu.

My sisters drove in from New Orleans to celebrate my bday. A coworker recommended Grace's for the braised short ribs. I had never been so made reservations for 7pm. We arrived at 7 and were checked out and walking out of the restaurant by 8:09pm. I understanding table turnover by the service was extremely fast - TOO FAST! We ordered bottle of wine, appetizers, main course and were never asked if we would like to see a dessert menu nor offered coffee or after dinner drinks. We would have ordered another bottle and possibly dinner drinks but were made to feel very rushed to leave. Our waiter Austin was pleasant and we kind of joked with him about the quick service but he downplayed it. Recommend slowing your service down a bit and then maybe I would consider recommending Grace's. :(
