We have been to Thailand and this place rivals the food experience. The staff is exceptional and the food rivals Thailand. My lobster dish was reminiscent of northern cuisine and my husbands of Bangkok. Hats off to a fabulous restaurant with exceptional service. Make the trip!

Food is only matched by the outstanding service at a Syracuse landmark. Fresh oysters are generally available and are awesome! Coconut shrimp app is not to be missed. Fresh swordfish loin is cut into steaks in their kitchen which makes this a must for seafood lovers. The curries are spot on. The desserts are the best in CNY. The ambiance... More

This is a very unique restaurant located in Armory Square. The ambience is very nice and the prices are reasonable. There is a very good selection on the lunch menu and the staff was professional. I live in Syracuse and was very pleased to attend a luncheon at this restaurant and was surprised at the quality and quick service.

Yesterday was the second to last day of the Syracuse restaurant week, and you'd expect the staff to be exhausted. Typically during restaurant weeks staff service a substantially higher amount of guests for a marginally better payout. The guests tend to be inexperienced diners looking for a deal, tip less but still have the same demands as every other guest.... More

Lemon grass is always a place that you can count on for a five star experience. The president of my company Fortune 100 came to town and this was a place that I knew would deliver a top notch experience and it did. We usually eat on the bistro side because I just like it better. We enjoyed the mussels... More

I live in Syracuse and have enjoyed Lemon Grass since it opened more than 20 years ago. The food and service are consistently excellent. The menu is eclectic, featuring lots of Pacific Rim inspired dishes. Although the owners are Thai, the food is not your standard Thai fare. It is also the only place in Syracuse which serves an excellent... More

I admit to being spoiled by spoiled by Thai restaurants in Thai town in Hollywood. For Vegas. The food is tasty. For Thai lovers, wait until you get home.

We recently dined here for our anniversary. It's a beautiful place and we appreciated the menu for it's creativity. I had heard it was "pricey", and it was by Syracuse standards, but I don't mind paying for exceptional food and service. We began by ordering a cocktail. I picked the "blood orange" which the menu states is their signature cocktail.... More
