    We had one of the best meals of our lives at State of Grace. The food was meticulously prepared and was sourced in a way so that it was fresh and flavorful. Our guide through our culinary journey was Nick - he paired each course with cocktails and wine that perfectly matched the taste profile of the food. We have not had a better server in our lives than Nick. We have followed Nick from Lafayette to Houston, joining him at each of the steps he has taken in his career. Request Nick for your meal and you will not be disappointed. The manager, Wednesday, came by frequently to check on us, interact with us, and ensure that our evening was amazing. If you are looking for a culinary experience with amazing food and service, no look further than State of Grace!

    Amazing time at this restaurant and service was absolutely wonderful! Our server was great and made my daughter in law’s birthday memorable! We celebrated her offer for a new job and her birthday- it was her first time there and she was thoroughly impressed. Ask for Steven the next time you visit, you will not regret it!

    The Hubby and I had brunch at this restaurant Father’s Day 2024. Our reservation was early at 10am. The staff (even that early) was bright and provide excellent care. The food and ambiance was great 😊

Sure, seasonal and local favorites like chicken-fried steak, crawfish, mesquite-smoked meats, barbecue ribs, and pasta with homemade sauces will leave you satisfied.
