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

The Lotus Garden is tucked away on a side street (King off of Hopper St.) and is behind the Stanley Theater. Parking is adequate. The smallish restaurant is a mixture of themes as one would expect, Cambodian, Vietmamese etc. A sushi menu is also available. The diners were seated in the busy dining room, but conversation was easy as the... More

My son and I stopped here on a driving trip. The restaurant was nice, a little dark, but there was soft music playing. We were impressed walking in. They also had nice chopsticks. The food, however, wasn't as good as we had hoped. We started with the Peking Ravioli ($6). The filling was good, but the ravioli was too doughy.... More

I enjoy going with my 3 children and husband. We like to order a soup sushi and a few entrees and have a family style meal. The waitstaff is so accommodating and this way we don't have a ton of leftovers! We have been here several times and always have a great experience.

One of my most favorite sushi places, but the entire menu is excellent. The staff always goes above and beyond, will make suggestions based on what you like to eat or dietary restrictions, will even suggest a special drink to go with your meal. The prices are very reasonable and the restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere. I frequent the... More

After being ignored in another local restaurant, we found this place tucked into the corner of the parking lot. I have a couple of food allergies so eating at unknown places is a bit scary sometimes. The woman who seated us answered all my questions patiently and with enough information that I had confidence I could eat there safely. I... More
