It’s worth it to go here just because of the building! It was an incredible experience to dine in a beautiful church. I loved the atmosphere! I don’t recommend to eat oyster there, they didn’t taste very fresh, they serve them on piles of salt and the oyster weren’t even cold. Other food was very good and unique. I’m in love with their onion soup, truffle oil makes it pure magic! Would love to go there again to try other good sounding dishes and the soup...again.

Living in Jersey we don’t get to Grace as much as we’d like but my Aunt and Uncle took us there recently. The Hanger Steak medium rare was mind blowing! My Uncle got the veal chops. When I tried his, they made me weak in the knees! Food and drinks were unbelievable and the ambiance is a one in a million. Anyone looking to impress a visiting relative should take them to Grace!!

Gorgeously renovated old church serving fantastic cocktails & dinner. Absolutely fabulous for events as there is so much space. Circular bar is fun to gather at with friends & for their happy hour.
