My only concern about this review is that it might make it hard to get a reservation. Outstanding! One doesn't find a chef/owner at your table throughout dinner almost anywhere. The pear salad is outstanding. All the entrees were great. We had the filet, halibut,...More

The food here is excellent! The menu is not large, but Chef David does everything to perfection! I routinely start with the foie gras, and often have the fillet. Make sure you save room for the dessert! The creme brûlée is amazing!

My husband took me here for date night and it was exceptional. The chef/owner/server/host was exceptional. I had the foi gras, sea scallops and creme brulee. We were the only couple there on a cold Sunday evening. I hope they get more clientele!

I had the opportunity to have dinner at Chez Grace recently and wondered why the place wasn't packed. This was fine dining at its best. Lovely decor, white linen table cloths, great ambiance. The chef was the server and was attentive without being too arrentive....More
