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

Took my family out since we had not been to Lemon Grass in awhile. We each had a different dish and sampled around the table. The winner would have to be the Kobe beef. Excellent but not enough food for my son's appetite. The curry beef dish was outstanding. The sauce was very nicely done. My son and daughter shared... More

Our party of three tried separate entrees and all were wonderful, with varied flavors, proteins and noodles or rice. One dish, a special, featured a bed of noodles topped with prawns, chicken, scallops and soft shelled crab in a red and yellow curry. This was clearly the table favorite (as we all sampled each other's dishes), but no one was... More

If I had been in Fairfield County, NY, LA…Metro DC….Chitown…..the prices would not have made me blink because of the price of leases and the expense to run a restaurant in a major metro area or vacation destination. But... this was Syracuse and more….the one small area where you can dine in a 'nice' neighborhood….'very nice'..I guess…for Syracuse, is fine... More

The perfect restaurant for a special evening in Armory Square. The service is supreme. The Thai food is their specialty but everything is delicious. It's a bit pricey, but again, for a special evening it's worth it.

Our friends from the area LOVE this place we ate there with them. Everyone in our group of 4 liked their food except me. I ordered the red curry that I thought was going to be vegetable heavy but it was mainly sliced tofu. Having lived in Asia for years, I can be more critical about American Asian food so... More
