Went for a dinner meeting with 15 colleagues and the food was very good. We had salad roll, crispy spring roll, green curry, pad Thai, pan seared basa(white fish), white and brown rice. The food was freshly prepared and the portions generous. The wait staff was polite.

I reviewed Lemon Grass here on Tripadvisor in 2008 and called it the best restaurant in town. I am sad to say my last few meals have been not so good and the last one was pretty bad. Even the one thing I always had, the crispy vegetarian rolls were not good. This is very sad because I've been going... More

Six of us went to Lemon Grass, not our first time. The service was good, perhaps not quite as attentive as it could have been, but certainly satisfactory and nothing was done wrong. The menu selection was very good, varied, something for everyone (and I mean everyone as they have a separate gluten-free menu available) and plenty to choose from.... More

Consistently a PERFORMER! Never a bad meal at this professional and solid restaurant. This is our GO TO restaurant. FRESHNESS served with appetizing complimentary sides. Whether seafood or veggie or meat or curry, TASTE and apparel dominate the dishes.

Lemon Grass is a go-to winner as far as I am concerned, excellent for lunch or dinner. I would describe the atmosphere as casual -elegant, not fancy but very nice and very comfortable. The food is Vietnamese based with some French infusion, and innovations by owner Mai Pham. The rice-paper wrapped salad rolls are a marvelous starter. Most recently I... More

Lunch here today was a delight. The dining room is bright and airy. The decor is beautiful with white linen and flowers on the tables. The menu has something for every taste and there are daily specials. We were seated by a window and our server was efficient and helpful. The food is well prepared, seasoned perfectly and attractively presented.... More

Lemon Grass is a top notch restaurant. It isn't fancy but still very upscale. The service was attentive. The server had a nice personality and established great rapport with all of her guest. The food was excellent. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Very satisfying experience.

I haven't been to Lemongrass in years. We met up with friends for dinner and enjoyed ourselves. Great staff and nice bar. We got there early to have drinks. Wine selection is not great but priced fair. The server was happy to do separate checks and my rare ahi steak with 2 sauces was perfect and light while still filling.... More

I love the food, the decor, the servers, the location. This is always my first choice when deciding where to go for lunch. The wonderful Thai/Vietnamese cuisine is always fresh and delicious.
