Great first trip

Went to the lotus garden for the first time. My wife had a wine and I had a UC for drinks. We sat outside and had a nice view through the side street of the state building. Our hostess was great. We had the lobster sushi roll (amazing) and I had a shrimp meal. Everything tasted great. We will... read more

We had heard from friends how good the Lotus Garden restaurant was, so we tried it and loved it. Even the chopsticks are more stylish than the chopsticks I have eaten with in other Asian restaurants. The restaurant has an outdoor courtyard with tables and chairs, but we chose to sit inside, in a dark and restful interior complete with... More

Heard good things so decided to try it out for dinner. Staff was very friendly, but the food was just average. Not bad at all but nothing exceptional either.

Best food ever. Always excellent service and the owner is a doll! Our favorite is the sweet Lotus shrimp but everything we've ever tried super delicious!

This is a delightful stop with a lively bar and 2 nice dining rooms. We were a group of 12 and sat in the bigger room which had a crackling fire in a charming fireplace - perfect for the subzero evening we came out on. After a drink in the bar area, we were seated and opted to eat family... More

The Lotus Garden has a great bar intimate atmosphere and a terrific ginger pear martini. Friendly wait service I had the Lobster Roll appetizer and the special of the evening a lotus shrimp dish. Out door dining is quite and intimate. We should frequent this restaurant more often since we live in Utica

We had a night in Utica New York and both people at the registration desk at the downtown Radisson recommended the Lotus Garden. It was an easy three block walk from the hotel and well worth it. I had a shrimp dish with veggies and rice that was cooked in a wonderful sauce. This was a Friday night and they... More

The Lotus Garden never disappoints. From appetizers to entrees, fresh food is prepared and presented beautifully. The Lobster Roll appetizer was presented as the body of a steamed lobster. The claws were still intact and the meat delicious. Have the Lotus Shrimp for dinner...you won't be sorry! (not available for lunch, which breaks my heart...since I work across the street!).

It has been a few years since we ate at The Lotus Garden which used to be one of our favorites, but closed, moved and reopened since then. We hoped for the best. Because I am a vegetarian who cannot eat onions, I often have difficulty ordering. Today was different. Our waitress knew exactly how each of the many vegetable... More
