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

There are many restaurants in Armory Square to choose from but Lemon Grass is my favorite. It is an upscale place that specializes in Thai cuisine and steak. We almost always order the Thai side of the menu. You pick your sauce and meat. I love the Himalayan Mango Cashew Nut sauce with chicken or shrimp. The appetizers are delicious... More

Took the family out for Mother's Day which included my 89 year old Mom, my sister, her husband, and two teen age children and my husband and I. Not an easy group to please. The service was excellent with special attention to my Mom who is hard of hearing. The staff was extremely patient despite the crowd. As usual the... More

Recently visited the Lemon Grass Restaurant in Syracuse for an Anniversary celebration and was not disappointed. Food was flavorful and despite small portions, filling. Service was professional and attentive. You must try the desserts as they are amazing and unique. Food is expensive, but delicious. If you are looking for a hearty meal, go elsewhere. If you are looking for... More

Four of us visited on a recent Saturday prior to seeing The Book of Mormon playing near by. We had a 6pm reservation and were seated immediately. The place was packed with pre show diners. We waited for close to 15 minutes before we saw our server. When he arrived he seemed annoyed and rushed to take our drink order.... More

Interesting and complete menu. Great wines and wine list. I loved the foie gras. It's just too cost-prohibitive to eat here more often. Nothing else to complain about here.

How can you go wrong with massaman made with filet mignon? Flavorful sauce, tender beef, and succulent potatoes made my favorite Thai dish the best massaman I ever had. Lemon Grass doesn't stop with great Thai food. Their over-the-top desserts are visual works of art and lusciously delicious to boot. Arp-orbed raspberry sorbet and a chocolate stiletto were just two... More
