We were directed here by relatives we are visiting in Syracuse, and we were positively delighted. The decor is pleasing and subdued, and the good was exceptional. This is fine Thai dining. The fishes we had were prepared with care and fabulously fresh ingredients. I wish we had room for dessert, because the dessert menu was sumptuous and sprawling. On... More

My fiance and I been going to Lemon Grass since it opened in the 90's, and have rarely been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious, fresh, and big-city amazing. If you like oysters, don't miss them here - they are nearly always as good or better than those we've had in NYC and Boston. Soft shell crab is sublime, as... More

Food and service were on the money, loved it! Leisurely business dinner, stayed beyond our welcome and no one threw us out. Really enjoyed our meal.

We went there in midweek., and the place was pretty crowded, as it is most times I have been there. We sat in the back, near the bar. Food is great. Nice selection of appetizers, entrees, and a good drink and wine list. The prices are a bit steep for this town, but for a special night out, it is... More

700 pm dinner (reservation needed) with dear friends. Server congenial, helpful, but very loud, always acting like he had to rush to other tables. Seated in back room, all 4 of us thought loud throughout. Extensive menu and great wine list, pricy. Wine servings in small glass for $10-11 @. Apps of fresh fig salad no pizzazz, fresh oysters excellent.... More

Two entries - one Asianish, the other bistro style. Menu serves both. Service was great. Tried a couple of curries and dumplings. If you want wine, there is an extensive and pricey list to choose from.

We made a reservation for a pre-concert meal and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the restaurant (and even more surprised to discover that the owner was the brother of THE celebrity restaurateur in Ithaca, NY). We ordered a reasonably priced bottle of Argentinian Malbec (did not disappoint) and their day's special appetizer: zucchini flower fritters stuffed with shrimp... More

Had a pretty simple dinner with my husband at Lemon Grass recently. We each had an appetizer, and an entree--I had the wild forest mushrooms with chicken, he also had the wild forest mushrooms but vegetarian style. Each entree was served in a bowl, and we were given a small dish of white rice to share. Beverages were 2 glasses... More

Food was fantastic ! Not a cheap eat, but possibly the best food we've had on our trip in the US so far. portions are more European than American which suits us fine, I hate wasting food, and taking leftovers isn't an option when staying in a hotel.

Just had lunch today at Lemon Grass. Tried the coconut shrimp...the best I have ever had...crunchy with coconut and a sweet sauce. Had the beef salad...delicious with a spicy kick. Tried the Pad Thai as well and it was very good. Did not indulge in dessert but a neighbouring table did and the desserts were a work of art. If... More
