    this was our 2nd visit to Lemon Grass and we had higher expectations for dinner. Great job on the dumplings but the main course fell flat. Fried rice was bland and the chicken it contained lacked any seasonings. There are lots of better choices out there!

    We went recently to Lemongrass. What a horrible meal. The food was tasteless, the sashimi was awful. The waitress was surly and rude and gave my husband some sprinkle on pepper when he told her his Thai dish had no taste. We eat both Thai and sushi often and this hands down was the worst meal ever. Not only was it awful tasting but it actually made me ill. If you have taste buds, don't eat here. We decided we would have been better off having a slice of pizza!

    Perfect spot for an after yoga dinner with friends. Made reservation becuase we were a larger party and they had our table ready when we arrived. The food and drinks were enjoyed by everyone. My Red Curry was especially delicious. Our server even offered to seperate our checks, which was very convenient for all. We will definitely be returning to Lemongrass. Great night with friends!

    Party of six for dinner on a Saturday evening. Our server needed to be reminded of our drink orders on multiple occasions. Despite the fact that the restaurant is fairly small and we were readily visible, our server rarely checked on us. I was disappointed.

    PixieVIP
    Dined on 5/8/2014
    After hearing so many people around our pool talk about the lobster monster which is considered a sushi roll, we went with friends to try it and absolutely loved it. I'm sure the rest of the menu is great as well but I never get past the lobster monster. It is served in a half lobster shell, the center filled with fried medallions of lobster and then along each side are what you mile think of lobster california type rolls. You don't need to like sushi in general to love lobster monster. We like the Atlantic Ave location but there is a Lemongrass in Boynton on Congress.

    This was a busy spot! The food was very good. My only criticism was that the menu was so vast that I had trouble figuring out what I actually wanted to eat! But a nice "bustling" atmosphere and overall good experience.

    My eight year old wanted to go there for his birthday dinner. The food was terrible and we ordered based on our servers suggestions. We will not return. We've been there before and had a great experience but this was awful. There are much better choices in the area.

    There were six of us for dinner. Most of us had lobster and it was quite good. Their martinis were great! Chose to eat outside, and found the noise level not conducive to having a conversation. The service was spotty, there was a large gap between our salads and main courses. The location was fun and right in the center of a bustling town.

    As usual the food and service were outstanding. Had salmon carpaccio, lobster monster, shrimp tempura, kc roll, sashimi roll and some individual pieces of sushi. All were delicious. We had kids with us and waiters suggestions for good and portion size were spot on. Only complaint is that we needed to wait for mearky half am hour for our table and during our wait our very hungry child had a major meltdown in the middle of Atlantic.

    We love Lemongrass as the food is always excellent. Usually the services is, too, but we didn't have much luck with this visit. Our server was too busy, it would seem, to check on us for refills, etc. She also failed to bring a lime for one person's drink despite being asked twice. Usually the service is quite good; hopefully this was just an off-night/one person who was not up to snuff.

    I felt our waiter was not there to help us or listen to us. We asked about the different types of curry and he said they were all about the same. I then asked for a large glass of ice and some lemon for my water. He never brought it. Finally, the third person, a busboy, brought me my water and lemon and He Smiled. That was a first all night. When we received our bill we caught en error. We were charged for a glass of wine we didn't receive. The waiter wanted us to take the wine rather than get us a new bill. I WAS NOT impressed. A smile and a little knowledge is a very good thing. Your waiter needs to learn these things.

    Love the food, but wayyy too many people for my liking. The table we sat at was also really close to some other people (close like we might as well share food and invite them to join the conversation). Bearing in mind that it was Valentine's and the place was understandably packed, my partner and I let that slide but a more romantic environment would have been preferable. Service was absolutely fantastic and we ate the best sushi we've had in a long time.
