I have gotten lunch takeout from Lemon Grass many times and have never been disappointed but this was the first time I have dined in and had lunch and was extremely disappointed. From the food to the service the whole entire experience was not good at all. In the beginning, our waitress was very attentive been as the dinner went on she was nowhere to be found for half an hour at times. We went during dining week so we all got three-course meals and the time between courses was very sporadic and took way too long. I was with a party of five and most of the girls enjoyed their food but my filet mignon was overcooked and very bland. For the amount of money spent and the time we were there (about 3 and a half hours) I was not happy at all.

Always excellent! Strawberries are in season, and the strawberry goat cheese salad and strawberry Napoleon reflected the best of this seasonal option. Great meal, great service!

What a great experience for commencement weekend, and they stayed open late just for us..! Actually the nicest staff, server even apologized for her facial expression when the food wasn’t quite correct… what incredible tableside manners. The food was also quite fun, aesthetic, and very exciting. Its clear a lot of thought was put into the restaurant & experience… and its not terribly expensive either.

Second time we’ve celebrated a special occasion here and it didn’t disappoint!! The service was excellent and the food was delicious- started with the oysters and two of us had the ribeye -cooked to perfection. I had the chicken in green curry which was amazing!! Just the right amount of kick to it!!

The food was absolutely delicious— every entree was tasty and we esp liked the oysters with siriracha sauce. The one hitch was that we had to wait longer — much longer — than other diners for our meal. There was no real explanation but all props to Billy the manager for making it up to us.

Top-notch service and OUTSTANDING food quality! Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our meal celebrating a special occasion. Fresh oysters, perfectly grilled Cowboy Cut steak, beautiful presentation of each item. 5 people- 5 different desserts and they were amazing. Great wine selection too. As is often the case, a quality dining experience like you will have at Lemon Grass, is not low budget. You get what you pay for, and I was happy to pay for such a fine meal.

Service was poor, from the beginning to the end. When wine finally arrived one glass was dirty, one wine was bad. Couldn’t find our server but found the host to bring another wine. Server couldn’t explain some entrees. One order arrived incorrect we just gave up at that point. The chicken in curry was dry and overcooked. This is not the normal experience at this restaurant. I understand they are all struggling and trying to do their best but we were sadly disappointed.

Food was delicious, service was fantastic, and portions were more than ample. A little pricier than necessary for your non entree items (appetizers, drinks and desserts).

Oh my, I was so excited for this meal. It is very pricey ($30 a plate) but I love thai food soo much, I felt it would be worth it.

I was so sad - the food was NOT good. There was very little spice in the spicy dish I ordered. It tasted more like sugar sauce. This restaurant goes heavy on the meat and includes hardly any veggies. The traditional flavors I've come to enjoy (basil, peppers, coconut) were not there. My husband's dish tasted like soy sauce or maybe just like top raman noodles. This was the worst thai food I have ever had. I've had much better thai food for 1/3 of the price.

Food and Service were good, not great. I was disappointed given it had a 4.6 star rating. The food at my local Thai place in Connecticut is far more authentic and worthy of a 5.0.

It was our first dinner out since the start of the pandemic. We had hoped to eat outside, but given the weather, we were grateful for the option of indoor dining.

When we were initially seated, we were relieved to see our table spaced six feet from our neighbors, with a table in-between that had been set up as a hygiene station (had disinfectant , etc). Although still a bit nervous, we sat down of a delicious meal.

Unfortunately, toward the end of the entree, the manager and one of the waitstaff began disassembling that middle table and then set it for dining. Within a few minutes, another couple was seated about 3 feet away. Behind us? Another wait staff led that table is singing (!!!) Happy Birthday (singing... even with masks is one of the worst things you can do in spreading the virus). We opted to not have dessert, paid quickly and left immediately.

I’m well aware of the financial impact of the pandemic on restaurants. We’ve ordered takeout and have tipped generously in hopes of contributing in a very small way to their continuance. Had we been shown the table in its final set-up we would have politely refused and waited to return another day.

Undoubtedly, we will all have varying amounts of comfort as we move forward as a society. I recognize that my own level of caution is much higher than the rest of the population. The food is fantastic... but if you’re a bit leery about dining indoors, you may want to eat elsewhere for now.

First time having dinner at Lemon Grass and we will be back. John was our waiter, very good service. Food was delicious!
Made reservation on open table and that was convenient.... still waiting to receive points toward rewards.
Spent 179.00 for two people.
First dinner out in a year due to covid so worth the money.
