This was a real surprise. It has an extensive creative menu across a wide variety of cuisines. The salads were particularly inventive and delicious. The portion sizes were moderate. The service was unobtrusive and swift. Noithing is cheap, but the value is there.

Usually, at a fine dining establishment like this, I expect the pretentious tiny portion, made to look like art. We got art. But we did not get tiny, nor pretension. Well, maybe a little pretension, but only enough to remind us we weren't eating at...More

Absolutely amazing food, service and dessert. I work downtown and often have business meetings/lunch here. Service is exceptional and never disappoints. If you are anywhere near the Armory and this is within your price range, it is a dining experience not to be missed.

Good food but expensive. Many people we know love Lemon Grass but for us the price just isn't worth it. It is a classy place for Syracuse and it is delightfully quiet. If someone takes you there, it must be a special occasion. Servers are...More

Not impressed at all and was really wanting to like it. Oysters were watery. Ordered lamb which didn’t taste like lamb and the duck was ok. For the price we were expecting more than we got.
