    This place has wonderful food, but if you are looking for an intimate and quiet dining experience this is not it. The tables are way too close together so you end up feeling like you are dining with the strangers literally inches away from you in some cases.

    My four companions and I all thought that the food at Lemongrass was all delicious. We tried a wide variety of small plates, sushi and more. The Lobster Monster roll was amazing, as was the Papaya Salad. The kitchen was very generous with the protein component of each dish. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and our service was impeccable! We will definitely be returning at our first opportunity!

    Making our online reservation was nice and easy.when we arrived they had our reservation ready for us although at the time we arrived the place was practically empty.we then had a choice to choose which table to eat at.the food was good but not that vegetarian friendly although there was tofu but unfortunately is made out of soy.whenever we said thank you to the helpers delivering our food,,they wouldn't respond back by at least saying thank you or at least smiling The ambiance was great and food was tasty.

    We dined with friends, a last minute reservation. The conch/octopus salad and the tuna cups were stand outs. Not so impressed with the fried rice as the meats were dry and of little flavor. Seabass in white miso was luscious! Will be back to try other dishes and sushi rolls.

    Service is getting progressively worse and last Sunday it was downright terrible- waiters reaching in front of us, no refills, servers never checking if we needed anything so we had to hunt them down and the restaurant was not busy at all. It will be quite awhile before we return. My husband ended up having to tip the waiter very well or nothing (he chose well) only because the waiter asked if we needed change or never came back and we were tired of waiting for him to return. Lesson learned, always use CC or have small bills.

    This place is fantastic. It is small, so telling too many people will make it hard to get into on the coveted Friday and Saturday nights! Service is spot on, food presented and prepared with pride. Their house plum wine is excellent with the sushi rolls. The lobster won ton soup has 3 large won tons with plenty of lobster meat. I dine here at least every 2 weeks and have a great meal every time.

    Lemongrass Asian Bistro was an excellent experience. I took a girlfriend for her birthday and it was the perfect setting for food and friends catching up. The wait staff was very helpful to us first timers and had some great recommendations. The food was so good. I tried the curry puff for appetizer and it was so flavor-able. My lobster pad thai was from the specials list so do not know if it will be there often, but it was perfect and it had a sizeable portion of lobster. Go enjoy.

    Friday evening and you're running out of wine??? Except for the expensive ones? The food was from meh to awesome: Their ginger-orange-coconut??? salad dressing was to die for! While the tempura for the calamari was nice and crispy, it was flavorless: and the calamari were super fine cut and dried out. My husband's duck with ginger sauce was superb! My chicken sate was ok, the peanut dip however much too sweet for my taste. The papya salad was good, just had a bit too much iceberg lettuce added. Why iceberg in the first place? Romaine brings so much more to it! Or bibb lettuce!

    We met another couple for dinner saturday night. The staff were clearly happy to see us and gave prompt attentive service throughout the evening, The spring roll appetizers and entrees were all excellent. The atmosphere is clean, cool and zen like. Our only disappointment was the desert. We had a hazelnut truffle which wasn't great. I got the feeling it came out of a frozen box pre-made. I could be wrong, but i'll pass on desert next time. Otherwise, everything was excellent and we'll give it another try.

    Lemongrass is a small restaurant but it produces excellent dishes with layers of flavors. Calamari tempura had a light breading that was just heavenly, crispy on the outside, flavorful on the inside. Shrimp with Ginger Sauce and Shrimp Pad Thai were both complex dishes, loaded with shrimp and many flavors. Next time, I will skip the sashimi style roll, a no-rise roll with shrimp, tuna and salmon but the sauce just made it messy and at $9 was overpriced. Still most of the dishes here are reasonably priced. Our bill for 2 appetizers, 2 entriees, dessert and 3 martinits was less than $50. Lemongrass also has small plates, perfect for sharing, as well as full-sized entrees.

    My wife and I visited Lemongrass twice and both times we really enjoyed it. The customer service from the staff is awesome and the food was great. One of my favorite dishes was changed a little, but I don't mind. Overall, I really like the place because the food choice taste good, the staff seems very friendly and the ambiance is really nice.

    For noise, I put Energetic. It was actually Traffic. Don't sit outside. The patio is next to Federal Hwy, and the noise was oppressive, and my friend wouldn't move indoors. Too bad there isn't a rating for the person you went with - he would get an "unacceptable!" I look forward to going back (indoors) as the food is great, and the service is attentive.

To top things off, even with a reservation, we had close to a half hour wait for our table.

    Lemongrass was good (leaning toward very good) but not great compared to most Thai / Japanese restaurants in North America. They put in a good effort, the service was efficient and friendly. The atmosphere is fairly casual, sort of "mid level". The outdoor seating area is quite nice. Overall though the food was just plain good but not so good I'd rush back, but if a friend suggested it I wouldn't complain. Food was a bit salty and otherwise underflavoured. But because they try hard I would say that it was good overall.
