A nice island dinner to start our vacation

Our resort recommended the Lemongrass Seafood Restaurant that was so close to us in Kapaa. The restaurant was busy tonight with customers dining outside and inside. We chose the inside because because of the guitar player/singer in the evening singing Hawaiian music. The menu is well rounded... read more

STAY AWAY!!!! Horrible food! I ordered the most expensive item on the menu, the Lobster/Crab/Shrimp/Fish Platter and it was garbage. The only thing that was edible was the fresh catch-of-the-day fish...everything else was from a Costco frozen bag. The lobster was so rubbery we couldn't cut it with a knife! The shrimp was blue/black and smelled like catfish. I bounced... More

My husband and I were in Kauai for our 10th anniversary. We stayed at the Waipouli Beach Resort and decided that the restaurant at the resort was a bit too expensive for what you got. So we went to the Lemongrass and were absolutely glad we did! I had the macadamia crusted sea bass and my husband had the mahi... More

I had the specialty - Sea Bass. It was not only extremely delicious, but also the most beautifully presented meal ever. I can't tell you how very impressed I was with the food and how glad I was to have eaten there. The ambiance was so relaxing and we very much enjoyed the singer also.

This place is so good we went here twice during our trip. It has excellent seafood! We especially enjoyed the seafood dinner for two platter. If we lived there we would go here all the time.

My family and I stopped here as soon as we got on the island. It was a very nice place and the staff was very friendly. The drinks were delicious and the food was amazing. All four of us ordered something different and had no complaints. Definitely would go here if you're looking for a nice, quiet, delicious place to... More

We ate at Lemongrass the last time we were in Kauai (a year ago), and the food was really good. When we came back to Kauai this year, my husband and I decided to eat there again -- the food was fabulous - really! I had the macadamia nut crusted sea bass - it was slightly crunchy on the outside... More

We had a nice upscale meal at Lemongrass. We enjoyed their seafood chowder, Steak and shrimp, and Scallops Linguine. My wife especially enjoyed the encrusted sea bass. The pina Colada's and Mai Tai' s were reasonably priced and tasted great. Amy, our server was extra helpful! In all, a nice evening at a reasonable price.

We enjoyed this restaurant. My husband ordered the ono fish dish and I had the mahi mahi - both were excellent. Would recommend to anyone visiting Kapaa on Kauai. Very good service.

First, notice that this restaurant fronts on a road. If you cannot ignore passing traffic noise, then sit inside for Pete's sake. We sat outside near a bubbling fountain, could still hear the inside music and had easy conversation. Service here is fast, friendly and efficient. Wine list is good and CHEAP particularly for Kauai.
