Diner Reviews
  • "We always have individual items rather than entrees. You can explore the whole menu without leaving the appetizer page. Try it!"

  • "Had a wonderful evening dinner; everything was delicious! The lemongrass soup was just as great as I remembered and my tuna steak was perfect!"

  • "Our friends love this place for the food. We had a great time but for us the food was nothing special. I'd go back because they were very accommodating in rearranging space when another couple showed up and for offering to personalize the entre to suit individual tastes. The plain cheesecake is amazing. Get the table by the window and people watch while you eat."

  • "I had three appetizers. The chicken-peanut salad was very good, the salmon cake was terrible (it tasted like softened ground cardboard), and the spring rolls were poor. Not a great experience."

  • "A Short North gem! Excellent food, signature drinks and great location. Good choice before a theater show downtown. Prices are reasonable and service is good. A short but respectable wine list. Food is delicious, prepared beautifully, and not too heavy. I especially love the spring rolls appetizer. Innovative fish dishes and delicious desserts! Always an excellent experience."

  • "Love Lemongrass. Always excellent especially now that I am eating whole food plant based. Lemongrass has a lot of wfpb options unlike many traditional restaurants."

  • "Reserved table just 1 hour before arriving - on Valentine's Day. Surprised that we could find an opening - maybe there was a cancelation. Food was great, service was fine - on a hectic night. Haven't been there for 10 years. The menu is more varied now. For those who have complained about the cheap looking chairs, they are comfortable enough for the time used. My interests are the quality of food and service rather than aesthetics. Despite the long line gathering before we left, we were not rushed by our servers."

  • "We made reservations for Valentine's Day, which I know is very busy, but the restaurant was one hour behind on reservations. When we were finally seated, the dining area had several empty tables. I would have rather been seated and wait then stand in a small waiting area with no where to move. The food came out fast but it wasn't overly hot. I had been there before and was very pleased so maybe it was just a bad night. It will probably be awhile before I return."

  • "We dined on February 15th, so the restaurant was understandably busy. We had to wait about 15 minutes past the time of our reservation. Our server was friendly and helpful. He offered several recommendations. I ordered 3 kinds of sushi (California roll, shrimp tempura, almond avocado roll). The only one with any flavor was the almond avocado roll. The other two were very bland. My husband ordered the pad thai with chicken. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal. The restaurant was extremely noisy. The flirtini I ordered was definitely the highlight of my experience."

  • "The location of this restaurant is a short walk to Nationwide Arena. They are one of the only places that have happy hour on sat eve, 3-7. We love sushi and theirs was excellent. If you are not a sushi fan there are plenty of other things to choose from on the main menu and happy hour menu. The presentation of the food was a nice surprise and the detail in flavor combinations was great."

  • "My wife and I had a reservation for 8:15 and we waited for an hour and fifteen minutes until we were seated. We arrived at 8:00. The food was good and the waitress was good but the wait time was ridiculous."

  • "Although it states that they served vegan food - why we made a reservation at this restaurant - there was chicken in my meal! Chicken!!! This was very distressing to me. There was nothing done about it. I was done eating at that juncture. My plate was removed, nothing was done to remedy the egregious mistake. For those who don't eat animal products and all of a sudden, it's ingested, it can really upset your stomach. I will NEVER dine there again! The staff certainly isn't careful in cooking their "vegan" food away from where they cook their regular food."

  • "Went to Lemongrass with my girlfriend for Valentine's Day and the experience could almost not have been any better. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was chill/romantic, but had enough energy to not bore you, and the waitress was very kind and timely. The only iffy part of the entire experience was that it was overcrowded, so the restaurant was slightly behind schedule. Our reservation was for 10:00 pm, and we could not be seated until about 10:25. I'm sure that was uncommon, seeing as how everyone was their for Valentine's Day, so I wouldn't hold that against the time management of the restaurant itself. Besides, the food and experience was well worth the wait. Eat at Lemongrass and I assure you you will NOT be disappointed!"

  • "With a child, date night is a treat. Where Lemongrass delivered was in great food, great service and plenty of mood lighting. It was Valentine's evening and the place was packed. We made reservations, otherwise we would have been in line. But it did make us feel like we were at the "cool place" in town. And I do think that it is, btw. Downside, it was a little loud. Also, we had one of those two top tables that floats in the middle of the room. Tucked in a corner would have made it a bit nicer. But we got a table! Overall it was fantastic."

  • "Had a Valentines day reservation for 730, had to wait an hour and 15 minutes to sit down. the waitress we had knew absolutely nothing about the menu and couldnt tell us anything about it. service was good but she didnt know anything. saw people without reservations get seated before us. really an infuriating experience and i will never be back. the food was just okay for being almost $30 a plate. ive had better food from resturaunts like applebees."

  • "I went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening with co-workers. The restaurant was lively and felt fun. Having heard of the restaurant a lot before going, I had higher expectations. The decor (especially the chairs) seemed a little cheap/dated. The server that we had was extremely friendly and did a very nice job. I ordered the crab-stuffed salmon and was not impressed. While the fish itself was tasty and well cooked, the pacific rim sauce was not for me (too sweet for the dish) and vegetables seemed old. I did see other items on the extensive menu that I think I would have enjoyed more, but I am not sure. Overall, I felt that the ambiance and the food was not worth the price."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Food is remarkable, the server was top notch. The only bad thing I will say is that they charged us $2 per person to serve a cake we brought. When you are charging a premium for food and cocktails, that seemed like a little much-between dinner and drinks (minus the silly service fee) I dropped over $50 per person...think you could have cut a cake for me for something less than $8. Next time we will skip bringing a cake."

  • "Great place to dine in Columbus with our daughter who attends OSU. Food is excellent and unique. Price is consistent with the quality, but definitely not too pricey! We have been exploring restaurants in the Short North and, thus far, this one is one of the best if not the best."

  • "It was my one year anniversary and I noted this when I made my reservation and asked if they could do anything special for that occasion, that would be wonderful. At then end of our meal, we were brought a beautiful slice of Almond cake to share and was told it was compliments of Lemongrass for our anniversary. Our server was wonderful and supportive and attentive and it was just an overall wonderful experience and great food."

  • "My 3rd time eating at Lemon Grass and food is exceptional every time. From the sushi/sashimi, curry dishes w/ coconut milk, cashew shrimp & scallops..... I could go on. There is something amazing for every pallet. However we are in the middle of an Arctic Freeze so I will forgive the one waiter who scrambled to keep his head on straight after the place filled up. I'm gonna say they had been slow past few days giving the below zero temperatures. I will definitely go back."

  • "We went for restaurant week and I was impressed by the tuna app and bento plate. It was a really cold night so the place was fairly empty and we sat by the door, this probably affected the ambiance score. But the food was delicious! Looks like I've found a new sushi place besides haiku!"

  • "The food was good! Went there for restaurant week Columbus. I always said I wanted to try that place out and I finally did. I was very satisfied with the service and the food!"

  • "The Thai owners are visible and friendly. They made us feel at home from walking in until we left. The service was over the top great. She recommended wine for my wife who rarely ventures far from her familiar list. It was perfect and set the tone from the start. The food was fresh and very well presented. Our only recommendation is to upgrade their tables and chairs. The furniture did not match the experience. Recommended,"

  • "Our meals were excellent! We had: tuna sushi...beautiful presentation and delicious. Peanut chicken salad was absolutely perfect, tasty!! Pad Thai very good. Cashew shrimp and scallops were perfect. They let us bring in our own birthday cake. They brought it out with candles lit for birthday girl. Service was attentive and pleasant. We love this restaurant and will continue to dine here."

  • "I went with a group of people and we all ended up with completely different items but everyone was happy with their decisions. All the food was well displayed and the service was incredible. We got there around 5:45pm on a Saturday and by the time we left the place was packed. I had the teriyaki shrimp sushi and a seaweed salad and was pleased with both. Not the best sushi I have ever had but the atmosphere and service is definitely a key factor in the nice dining experience we had and I would definitely go back from another visit and try something new!"

  • "I've eaten here twice and both times was very pleased by my meal. The most recent time was NYE and for such a busy night I was still impressed with the quality oft meal. Love the chicken pad tai and had the portobello mushroom appetizer which was really tasty! Would definitely go back."

  • "Lucky to find a spot for New Year's Eve at the last minute through Open Table!! Great food. Enjoyed sitting by the window and watching the people headed to their New Year's Eve venues. A bit loud, but probably due to the date 12/31. Will definitely visit here again when in the Columbus Ohio area. Great Find."

  • "We have been to Lemongrass many times and always enjoyed it, so decided to go for New Years Eve. Of course, it was packed, as expected, so the noise level was pretty high. We had an 8:30 reservation, but didn't get sat until almost 9:00. The host was pleasant an accommodating, and we waited around the bar. The food was good, as always, and we ordered favorites- lemongrass soup, spring rolls, the Trio (one of my husbands favorite dishes in town), and I had the Lemongrass sushi roll. Despite the crowd, our food came out in very good time and was well paced. Our server was great- busy, but pleasant and attentive. Overall, a great meal!"
