We enjoyed our meal in the Elephant Bistro portion of this restaurant, and it was wonderful. A full menu of appetizers, with the coconut shrimp being a star!!! The steaks were prepared perfectly, and the entire meal was delivered properly. Do yourself a favor, give this place a try, you will love it.

I ate at this restaurant with some family, and we all LOVED it! Our waiter, Oliver, was not only handsome, but also wonderful in the service he provided. He was charismatic, attentive, and gave some nice suggestions. He clearly knows his job and is great at it. Between us we had the roasted duck, Bangkok beef, and pad thai, accompanied... More

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
