Perfect Blues Fest dining expirience

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... read 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

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

Had a business lunch here the other day, was seated promptly and server was very knowledgeable and provided good advice on the spiciness of the dish we ordered. Food was great and water glasses were constantly being filled. Would definitely go back. Prices were reasonable.

I am a big fan of Thai Food. I usually patronize the smaller family run Thai restaurants. I hadn't been to Lemongrass in a while and when my niece who is a real "foody" visited we took her to Lemongrass. It is a attractive, pleasant and quiet place to dine. Our meals were just fabulous. The Curries are exceptional. The... More

Came here for dinner. Small spot downtown in the trendy Jefferson St restaurant row area. I ordered the Prig Pow which of which mine was made with chicken in a sauce of roasted chili paste, garlic, peppers, cinnamon and basil. To drink I had the Bell's Two Hearted which was delicious as the meal. It was busy and I felt... More

I just returned from Vietnam and was looking forward to trying Lemon Grass. The meal was fantastic. The noise level was good and the tables were far apart allowing for a leisurely and calm meal. Altogether a great evening I loved the Asian food but for those who want something else, there are plenty of options

We looked forward to dining here but were disappointed at the lack of attention to presentation and the dearth of vegetables in the food. Everything tasted fine, but we have had much prettier varied food at much less expensive Thai restaurants, including in Syracuse. If surroundings and a big-city feel are more important to you than the food, you will... More

Made a last second decision to eat here before a concert at the Landmark. Even though we did not have a reservation, they were able to seat my wife and I.[ I would suggest reservations on most nights] Also, because they knew we were going to a concert, they tried their best to get our meals out to us as...
