Stopped here in need of a good drink, a good meal, and some quiet time. Lemongrass fit the bill. The cowboy steak and the filet dinner were both outstanding. The Pad Thai was different and not my favorite but it was ok. The space was lovely in Armory Square and the service was prompt. Not an inexpensive meal for 3... More

Dinner was excellent; both of us enjoyed a special entree: chicken, scallop, and choice of either soft shell crab or lobster. Delicious!

Visited with colleagues the restaurant was very busy on a weekday night but the staff managed to find us a table within 30 minutes. The staff were very knowledgeable about the menu and we were able to choose a meal that was very good.

Too many restaurants in smaller markets are unwilling to exceed expectations when simply meeting them will do. Lemongrass is an exception to the tendency to mediocrity in this particular market. Attentive service, pleasing ambiance, exceptional cocktails, and a varied menu make this a truly remarkable dining experience. Well worth the price.

Our family celebrated my daughter's birthday by heading to Lemon Grass for the first time. The major draw for us was that many of their dinners could be ordered with tofu, with our daughter being a vegetarian this was awesome. The service and food were both excellent. This will definitely go back to enjoy the wide range of entrees.

Lemon Grass mixes old and new in a creative and tasteful way. It's a wonderful place for a really good dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. I'd love to go back there the next time I'm in town.

Liked the décor in general, but it was not a good beginning to walk in alone while my coworker parked the car, and had to stand unattended as waiters bumped into me; nobody asked or said anything, or apologized for hostess being MIA. Waiter was attentive but trying to be way too cool. Appetizer was delicious, my duck on the... More

This restaurant is a gem. From the bartenders to the busers to the waiters and waitresses. We had Sue as our waitress and she was flawless! I ordered the mussels, they were very good. The dessert they make are truly art. A wonderful restaurant! I would come again next time I'm in the area!!
