Dinner on new year's eve. Missed lunch which was a mistake as I was ravenous. My wife ordered spring rolls which were great with a clear sauce. I had cup of luncheon soup - sweet and sour - pineapple made more sweet than I prefer but it was excellent. I ordered "chili" with seafood - squid, shrimp and scallops -... More

Great food. Not too expensive and the service is outstanding. The pho was as good as any I have had. The sprint rolls were unique and very tasy.

The Pho was wonderful... so good I brought the rest for lunch today. The service was ok... I think the waitress could have been a bit friendlier and have actually put the food in front of us rather then plunking it down on the side of the table and letting us sort out whos was whos. I don't think she... More

I don't have a lot of exposure to Vietnamese food, but my husband and I were very pleased with the food at Lemongrass. Everything tasted bright and fresh. Their egg rolls were delicious. We had the chicken fried rice and the vermicelli noodles with beef, both of which were great. Highly recommend!

This was our first time in this restaurant, (on a Sunday visit to the Bowdoin College) we had some fresh spring rolls and their Pad Thai,and Iced tea. It was so delicious, the noodles were prepared to perfection! We enjoyed the choices we had! The menu was not extensive, but ample variety of food fusion! The ambience is very nice... More

I do not know what Vietnamese food should be, never had it before. What we all got was very fresh and flavorful, all the noodle plates looked similar, but people ordered different types of noodles and proteins. The service was good, the waitress was knowledgable. I suspect this is AmericanVietnamese cooking much like the Chinese food we eat here.

We walked past this little jewel of a restaurant for a few days and then decided to head there for dinner one evening. Our first time trying Vietnamese food. Wonderful! Waitstaff helped us select and explained the dishes. Each dish was light and fresh. Vietnamese coffee was awesome. Don't think you could go wrong with anything you try.

From Chicago, enroute to visit friends in Maine, we stopped in Brunswick to see the Bowdoin college museum, a little gem in itself. Walking past the Brunswick Inn we discovered Lemongrass, a small, intimate, Vietnamese restaurant on the edge of the college. The peaceful, well appointed interior was just what we needed after an afternoon of walking and looking. The... More
