    This is hands-down the best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand. And my favorite restaurant when I visit Syracuse. The food is excellent, as are the drinks. And each time I've eaten here, the service has been outstanding too. Can't beat the Massaman curry sauce!

    The ambience was wonderful. Nicely decorated and there was a piano player. We decided to order a few of their specials. We started off with a dozen oysters with a spicy sauce.. The oysters were fresh and served perfectly chilled. We also had the spring rolls. My husband had the vinous steak special and I had the Maine lobster special. The steak was perfectly cook with a peanut sauce, zucchini and mashed potatoes. The lobster had a red curry sauce with mushrooms and bok choy. For desert the mango sticky rice, fresh mangoes, black rice with creamy coconut sauce and coconut shavings. We had a martini and mock-tail to start. With her meal we enjoyed a Pinot grow from the Willamette Valley. Service was superb with Charles our server and Jay who Made sure our table was comfortable. We would definitely visit again.

    Very nice design and decor and yet no ambiance/energy in the room - falls flat. Music would help as would making sure the big TV over the bar isn't showing a golf channel infomercial for 90 minutes!!! Our server was super personable and knowledgeable but would disappear for long periods of time between courses, and forgot one of our requests for a glass of wine and another for salt and pepper. Easy fixes to get this to a 4.5 rating.

    Amazing dinner spot with great ambiance, attentive service, and absolutely delicious menu. Started with cocktails and appetizers: Coco Shrimp and Oysters (some of the freshest and biggest we've ever had.) We followed up with the Himalayan Mango w/ Shrimp and Prig Pow w/ Beef for entrees. Both were piping hot and packed full of flavor. It's a little on the pricier side, but absolutely perfect for special occasions or date night. Staff was very attentive throughout dinner service. One of my favorite meals I've had in Syracuse.

    Aiden was attentive and engaging. The food is always amazing. Kitchen was very slow, but we were in no hurry. It was not at all busy, but we had reports of a backup in the kitchen. I tried the NEW dish Himalayan Mango- I chose to have it with shrimp. It was very good, but I’d almost bet it wasn’t the dish I ordered. There was zero mango and no ginger. It was mostly onions and shrimp in a brown sauce. It did not disappoint just made for a few good laughs. We thought about having the sticky rice and mango for dessert, but we’re afraid it would just be sticky rice without the mango. The sorbet flavors were on point as was the chocolate lava cake. Still the best restaurant in Syracuse.

    We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation - fully not expecting to be seated and offered to sit at the bar area until our appointed time. The hostess was above and beyond and offered to seat us immediately at a great high-top. From the ambiance to the service to the food - everything was exceptional. We ordered a bottle of wine - which unfortunately wasn’t available - but the sommelier himself came to our table with an equivalent vintage that was superb. Our only regret was that we were too full for dessert!

    We went for my husband’s birthday. Hadn’t been to LG for several years. We didn’t realize the jazz fest was starting, so when we got there, there were several groups of rather loud fest attendees. They left fairly soon after we got there. Main dishes were delicious, but the fancy dessert we ordered was a disappointment. Seemed to have been just pulled out of a freezer. Mousse was dry and ice cream had a frostbitten quality. Expected better for $15. Overall, however, very good. Our server was very sweet and attentive.

    This was our first visit to Lemongrass. Won't be our last. The food was excellent. The service was excellent and in particular "Billy" the manager was awesome!! He spent the time to tell us some of the history of the restaurant and other fun facts and did it all with a great smile and humor. Would definately recommend for fine dining experience.

    The service was terrible. For a white table cloth restaurant - the service does not measure up. The whole night was frustrating as the experience did not get better. The only saving grace was the nice gentleman who filled our water glass with a smile the whole night. The waitress who served us should get another job. She’s not into the hospitality business. Our bad experience with the service over shadowed the food unfortunately. We will not be coming back.

    What a delicious meal we all had. The shrimp dumpling appetizer was a great starter. The strawberry goat cheese salad was so fresh and had a bright lemony vinaigrette. The green curry with scallops was a little bit on the spicy side for me but I still finished it because of its dynamic flavor. The restaurant was packed because of several events, but service was still timely and we didn’t feel rushed. Can’t wait to go back.

    The new space is beautiful but they didn’t lose the old service and food, both excellent. It’s little known that this place has one of the best selections of whiskies of all kinds; ask for the book. The manager (Billy) is a real connoisseur of whiskey and has taught me a lot about this beverage. I had a glass of the ‘89 Glen Grant. Amazingly this vintage Scotch did not cost me an arm and a leg and was a great recommendation. The service was great. We always look at the menu, but we know that if Khow Soy (sp?) is offered, we’ll always split that (whole split lobster, chicken, scallops, bok choy, red curry sauce, birdcage noodles). I had the steaky bacon appetizer and my spouse had the always-good strawberry fields salad. We skipped dessert, but sometimes we have it and it’s amazing. I believe the place has a dedicated pastry chef. Anyway. Go and enjoy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
