It's a church in the middle of Portland...until you walk in and see the place. A bar built right in the middle, with all the original glass windows....beautiful carving throughout. ..just a sight to see. We only went for a drink but was great.

My wife and I live in Maine and decided to treat ourselves to a dinner at Grace. I had a steak. My wife had some halibut. Bottom line was that both entrees were average, at best. Given the price, you can do much better. Atmosphere...More

An amazing place. In a converted church just beautiful. We had the Maple Glazed Rack of Elk, it was terrific. Impressive list of cheeses and charcuterie as well. Highly recommended.

Grace is in an old church which makes for a great space. If I had it to do over again, we would stop for drinks and a snack, but skip dinner. Cocktails and a great beer list. Dinner was fine though nothing was particularly good....More

We're going to a theatre show on a Saturday night and I would like to bring my special lady here. Should I make reservations, and if so, how far ahead of time?

I recommend reservations for sure, especially on the weekend. If you can't get them, it's worth a visit to see the place and have drinks and apps at the bar. Beautiful!
Do you welcome gun owners? I am planning a trip to your restaurant soon.
