Regional American (Contemporary Southern)
State of Grace is a coastal, South Texas neighborhood restaurant in the refurbished Lamar-River Oaks Shopping Center. Elegant but casual, its elevated comfort food by executive chef Bobby Matos is executed at the highest level in a welcoming, beautiful space. The jubilant medley of old favorites played with new spice, accent, and freshness lends itself to southern, American, Latin, Gulf Coast, German and Asian influences. Chef-owner Ford Fry’s first venture outside of Atlanta, State of Grace is located in the neighborhood where Ford grew up and nods to his childhood memories fused with Houston’s evolution into a melting pot of cultures and cuisines.

    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!

    A remarkable experience. Our first time there and we will definitely return. Laela was our waitress who did a phenomenal job. Hats of to the entire staff for their friendliness and knowledge. We started with the octopus and hushpuppies. Each so different but so well executed. Our main dish was the redfish, absolutely incredible. Also had the Pork Jowls. Never had this dish but the smoking smell walking in gave you an idea of how incredible these would taste. We accompanied our dish with black rice. Never had this before and this dish was fantastic! Almost risotto like, however not as sticky although wonderful. We finished the evening off with the Texas Pecan Ball. OMG, this was incredible. Vanilla ice cream surrounded by chocolate and pecan pieces accompanied by some chocolate cake. What a winner ! The manager/owner paid particular attention to us and was fabulous. On the way out, we were given homemade gingerbread cookies stuffed with an icing. Fantastic. The entire night was incredible. Great ambience, wait staff, food and drink. Highly recommend !!

    Beautiful restaurant. Our server did not want to be at work was the feeling we got. The table next to us had a completely different service than we did. Their server (very nice gentleman with a beard) explained the menu, offered recommendations, and luckily we were able to hear so we knew what was recommended. Our server seemed irritated that we were there and didn't recommend anything. Bread was not offered, hand towels were not offered, we did get our drinks quickly from the bar. The food was ok. The hushpuppies were too sweet and I didn't taste any crab, the peach salad was bland, but my pasta was good. My husband loved his filet. Not sure we'd try them again.

    Juan our server was very warm and attentive, and moved at the perfect pace. Food was overall wonderful - greens of the moment could have been a bit more interesting and the portion was massive. The marinated crab claws, lamb shank, and chocolate ball dessert were favorites. The octopus was delicious albeit slightly too spicy for our group, and the single tentacle could have been larger. Noise in the back dining room was quite loud, to be expected on a busy night at peak time.
