    This was our second time at this restaurant. First time the food was awesome although the young lady greeting at the door was not pleasant. Second time the same young lady greeted us by notifying us the restaurant would only be open for 15 minutes.no more pleasant and we had to clarify if we would have time to eat. Given we had made a reservation for this time it seemed odd. We were dressed in university gear both times which might have made us leas welcome as most at this location are dressed up for a big event. The waitress was very nice and clarified we could order drinks and dessert even though we would need to order our entrees quickly. My wife and I ordered the curry and our son ordered the $85 rib steak. We asked that it be made a bit spicy and we must have bruised an ego on this and our dish came extremely spicy and had several peppers chopped and in it. We can handle it but it was definitely extreme. To make matters worse our sons steak was undercooked and there was no opportunity to have it recooked because the kitchen was closed. We’re an easy going lot and eat at at this type of restaurant frequently but choose not to dress up on weekends because we do that for work all week. If you attend this restaurant, I would recommend to not accept a reservation after 8pm as the service will degrade. At $275 for a meal for 3 it is really only an appropriate place to show off to a date or something like that. Joeys in Syracuse is the far better choice where they don’t care how you’re dressed and food is 10/10 with warm service every time. Recommend treating all people with respect and not making reservations if you don’t have the staff to execute.

    We selected Lemon Grass based on its reputation in Syracuse. I would recommend it, but I'll share my personal experience. The 2 men playing guitar were fabulous! . The sashimi was great as was the shrimp eggroll appetizers that 4 of us shared. I ordered the swordfish that was a special of the day and she recommended the sweet tamarind preparation from the classic entree. I asked specifically for it to be undercooked and it came out leather-like. It was also tasteless. It was smothered in the sauce which was soooo sweet, I could barely eat it. By the time she offered to replace my fish, we were almost done eating. I thought maybe someone from the kitchen would be directed to the table, but no one came. That would have been a nice touch. I'd go back, but maybe ask for a very little of their sauces as it overwhelmed the entire dish.

    First time here. What a great experience! Sat at a hightop in-between tables and bar. Bar tender was unbelievable. The bar was packed but at no time did he not take care of us. Was funny and spoke of the specials which we had the oysters from his recommendation. He was incredible coming over at just the right time. Hard to do with full bar seats. Well done. Had the duck and bangkok beef. Both dynamic. Excited we sat in his section! Will be back because of his hospitality.

    Great food and drinks but overall too expensive. Granted we got 3 rounds of drinks (2 people) but $300, especially as vegetarians, is too costly.

    Lemon Grass is always amazing and again, it did not disappoint. Our party of 4 opted for several appetizers, including the incomparable coconut shrimp, and the duck confit spring rolls; two salads, the pear maytag, and the pomegranate, the haddock with lemon butter (enough for 2+) and a vegetarian dish with chili tamarind sauce. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was excellent, as always. Dessert was the Glass Slipper, the Can Can, and the Coeur ala Creme. A great ending to an excellent meal. I highly recommend Lemon Grass. It has been consistently good, offering amazing food and first rate service, in a beautiful setting for many years. It is, in my opinion, the best in the city, and one of the best restaurants anywhere.

    We had a great Anniversary dinner at Lemon Grass on Saturday evening. The food was great, with spicy options for those of us who like that. Desserts were fantastic ... as always ... and Don made our evening one to remember. He was informative, attentive, and he made sure we enjoyed ourselves. Will be back soon.

    The flavors were incredible. We had the shrimp dumplings. The smoky, sweet, and spicy were on point. The prig pow was crazy delicious in every bite. Just the chili sauce alone with rice would have been enough! The tofu was cooked and flavored perfectly. I've never had such delicious tofu. The Tom Yum soup hit every flavor profile. We had a bottle of the Hugel Pinot gris. It had a great honey finish. Not too sweet but complimented all of the food well. Dessert was the creme fraise, light and airy. Just stupid good. The fresh pomegranate seeds were such a great addition. The raspberry tart had an incredible fresh made sorbet. The honey drizzle on the plate was just enough. The coffee was smooth and delicious. Everything was prepared beautifully. 10/10 recommend!

    We went to Lemon Grass (LG) before a show at the Landmark. We had never been when the LG was at their old location on Jefferson. So we thought we would go to their new location on Walton. We had heard good things. Ambiance was ok. Service was meh. After my salad, I left my salad fork and knife on the plate, one of the servers (not mine) took the plate AND ALL my silverware. Then quickly put my dinner fork and dirty knife back on the table, making my dinner fork covered with salad dressing. Fine dining would have supplied fresh, clean cutlery. Entree was tasty, good size serving. I ordered the Apple bread pudding for dessert. My server asked if I wanted Ice Cream with it, I said,”No”. The ice cream was extra. I thought that odd considering it was a $16 dessert. Other establishments usually include ice cream, especially at that price. It tasted good, but it had been microwaved to reheat it. You could tell by how “lava” hot the center diced apples were. The microwaving also dried out some sections of the pudding. Was the food good? It was ok. Will I go again? Maybe for drinks and apps at the bar. But, I don’t think we’ll be going back for dinner. BTW, the gentleman keeping tabs on are water glasses was on-point and very polite.

    The zenith of food and service. We cannot say enough good things about what has become my wife’s and my “our place”. If you want to experience what it’s like to eat delicious food while being treated like the celebrity you don’t have the looks, talent, or connections to ever be (sorry), this is your best chance. Beware: it is also celebrity, special occasion, pricing. But you get what you pay for and I guarantee you none of those utility, mortgage/rent, car, student loan etc payments you’ve ever made were this satisfying. Enjoy.
