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

Menu is not what I am used too, but the food was great. Coconut shrimp was very tasty and fresh, mussells were out of this world they have a nice sauce marinade, and I had a beef salad which was a little minty..Strawberry Napoleon for desert. Service was excellent.

Although the menu is rooted in Thai cuisine, there are options for any palate. The plates are artfully crafted to not only delight your eyes, but also your taste buds. Clean, simple, and more than satisfying. Go with friends, new and old, or join your family. The Lemon Grass will not disappoint!

Typically a thai restaurant has good food, plain atmosphere, regular service. This one is completely different. First time eating thai food on a table with a nice tablecloth! Really nice looking restaurant, great service, excellent food. Great wine list. The trio appetizers (as a sampler) were amazing. Curries were delicious. Really nice dinner in a nice setting.

This restaurant is one of the top high- end restaurants if not #1 in the central NY/Syracuse, NY area. The menu is Classic Thai/Pacific Rim with a French Slant. Their seafood is delivered daily, everything is fresh using locally grown produce. Their cocktails are super delicious. The owner/chef "Max" is very visible & friendly and the desserts are homemade by... More

Had an early dinner before a concert at the OnCenter. The shrimp dumpling appetizer was outstanding, as was the roast duck (crisp as I like it). The dessert was beautiful and a delight. Our server was friendly and helpful making suggestions when we were torn about what to order. The prices are high, but so is the quality of the... More
