Delicious food, very good service

We were a party of 7 (2 international families coming to leave their daughters @ SU) and we made the reservation through Tripadvisor and Open Table when reviewing about the place which was very convenient. Parking is next door, something difficult to find in downtown Syracuse. We had a trio of... read more

We went for dinner, and we were seated immediately although the place was crowded, our waiter was great and he made very good suggestions. All the food was very delicious, we had the duck, the swordfish and steak every thing was perfect

One of the busiest nights downtown arts, jazz & wine festivals happening we were seated promptly with no reservations. Our server Nevin did an excellent job describing specials and making wine recommendations. Had the coconut shrimp app, and the Duck entree, both were delicious! The "famous" chocolate pyramid was the only let down, it was good but not worth the... More

Let me start by saying that my wife wanted me to title this review "That was the worst meal I have ever had". But she retracted it when she remember the large bowl of french fries and catsup that she devoured while waiting forever for our food. Had dinner tonight as a party of three. Our first time trying Lemon... More

I love this restaurant because they serve the kind of food that I don't know how to make at home. I am Italian and I make and love Italian food, but occasionally, I like to eat something more exotic. I can find that at Lemon Grass, I have tried several of their dishes and I have loved them all. If... More

Thought this was a Thai Restaurant,but no. This place had an exciting menu of Asian & Western Dishes,the specials sounded amazing. Then comes the product of which some of it looked really good until you eat it.Just poorly executed,it reminded me of the late 80's early 90's east meets west trend but done really badly. The staff well they are... More

not only was our outside table fanstastic with a view of the NYS Blues Fest Stage with excellent music, the food and service completed a perfect summer night in Syracuse! We started with a perfect martini (they have an exceptional drink menu) and a buttery chardonnay (a little pricey) which complimented my Tuna Tataki and the delicious pork belly with... More

Lemon Grass was nicely decorated. It had white table clothes and napkins. For appetizers, we had King Roll and Steaky Bacon. Both were yummy! We had the roasted corn with lump crab soup. It was creamy and rich. For dinner, my husband had rack of lamb and I had a special made with red and yellow curries. It had shrimp,... More
