The views and decor are probably unparalleled for a Chinese restaurant - it's definitely a very cool place to eat. The food is high quality and the portions are reasonable for the price. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

The exterior of this restaurant led us to think we would experience elevated Asian cuisine. We were wrong. The menu is unimaginative and filled with things you could find at any Chinese take-out place, for twice the price. The staff brought us menus within seconds of our sitting down and kept coming back to check if we were ready to... More

I went with a group of eight. Enjoyed the happy hour prices and had a fun time with good food and drinks. Most in the party has sushi and there was only admiration. I had some of the best spare ribs I have ever tasted. The 1/2 price bottle of wine was delicious and made for more merriment. If you... More

Each time I come here there is never a wait. Waiters are very attentive to your needs. The restaurant is decorated beautifully. Nice choices on the menu also. I have done ladies night out, ladies luncheon and dinner dates here. Never a disappointment.

Great food, took advantage of a 3-course lunch deal. Nice view by the window. Easy to walk to and from the Gaylord Hotel for a nice lunch in-between conference meetings.

We have hosted several dinner & lunch parties (up to 14) at this restaurant, as we are currently based at Nation Harbor Marina for 3 months. The food and service are outstanding. Each dish definitely has its own wonderfully unique taste. Some of the best Calamari I have found. The sushi is also very tasty. Great service

If you are in the national Harbor area and love upscale restaurants with top of the line service and presentation you must give Grace's a try! We continued to be impressed with each course, and had to try dessert even though we are full. Yes- it was that good. Our table had: vegetable nest, vegetable fried rice (upcharge to add... More

The National Harbor is growing with many options of food. Grace's is an excellent restaurant with the opportunity to enjoy Chinese food. I ordered the mango salmon which was sweet yet delicious. Everyone ordered different menu items and was extremely pleased with taste, amount and freshness of food. This is a great choice if in the area.

I'm a long patron of the Grace's restaurants, starting with her first in Bowie, MD. This one is the grandest. Hosted my company's year-end celebration there. The staff were very friendly; food was great, excellent taste, preparation and presentation; and the restaurant is aesthetically delightful. Our waiter, Kai, made our dining experience exceptional. He got everything right; his timing was... More
