    Excellent food! Terrible service…waiter was not friendly and treated us as if we were a bother…sad for the over $300 we paid for LUNCH for 6 people. Won’t be back, sad considering how great the food tasted.

    Food, manager and water guy: great. Server (middle age guy, dark hair): not so great. Quite condescending and dismissive; not friendly in the least. We were a party of 9 women, so while I get that a few of us (well, not me haha) can be a bit much, we’re a fun group who usually tip generously. Let’s just say he’s lucky he got 20%. A few of us have experience in the restaurant business and the extremely inefficient method of bringing only two plates out at a time the whole night rather than utilizing a food runner or a tray or at a minimum two plates stacked on one arm is mind-boggling (salads were served literally over a 10 minutes span—and entree timing was not much better). Suffice it to say we were there a long time. The evening wrapped up with being asked if anyone would like coffee AFTER we were finished with dessert (that was ordered ahead of time) and waiting for the check….seriously?

    Well, we were very surprised that the menu was not Thai. We had no idea there was a bistro with a different menu. It was my daughter’s birthday and she is vegan. Whoops. We enjoyed the most delicious appetizers, then moved on. Few vegetarian options even. Service was amazing. Ambience…kind of dark and dated in the back, but light and airy feeling in the entrance area.

    As usual, it was impossible to choose from this perfect array of meals cooked up by Chef Max. But we always start with the oysters on the half shell. Can never have enough of those. Paired with great chardonnay, the evening was delightful.

    There happened to be a concert event the night we celebrated our anniversary and the restaurant was quite busy. We were seated promptly as we had a reservation but waited quite some time before we were waited on by our waiter. The nice gentleman that was bussing tables had even filled our water glasses 3 times before we were offed even drinks from the bar. It was at least 20 more minutes before were able to order an appetizer only to a running by waiter who had no desire to stop and review choices with us. We had finished our appetizer and waited another 10-15 minute before our order was taken. Once the meal was finally received one was excellent and the other had tough meat. All said & done 2 1/2 hours later were finally finished.

    Haven’t been back to ‘cuse in 10 years. So glad that Lemongrass hasn’t missed a beat! The new location is lovely but, more importantly, the excellent staff both front of house and back of house are still bringing their A-game. Susan D was running like a sprinter but never made us feel neglected or rushed. The tamarind duck, steaky bacon and (I’m told) tamarind shrimp are not to be missed. We’ll be back.

    Arrived early for our reservation and we’re sat immediately as it was shortly after open. Every single staff interaction was pleasant, the live music was a great add on to the ambiance. Our appetizer, dinners, drinks and dessert were all so flavorful and delicious with good portion sizes. We loved everything!

    Amazing Thai in Syracuse. Creative dishes with incredibly fresh ingredients. Our server was the only down side. Inattentive and would disappear for long stretches. Otherwise this place would get my 5 stars. I’ll go back for the food. It’s that good.

    Wonderful place. I’m from out of town but it’s my go to before concerts or basketball games since they open at 4:30. We had some scallop carpaccio and a couple of other appetizers that were wonderful. I had the duck with a Thai orange sauce it was absolute prepare the best I’ve ever had it including French restaurants. Bartender mix up some good cocktails great place for any occasion, take my word and Try it out

    Outstanding food and terrific, attentive service. Delicious meals. Expensive. Anniversary dinner for two -- soup appetizer, entrees, shared dessert, a cocktail for her (water for me): $130. It's great for a special occasion or if your budget is...well, if you don't need a budget. I'm not slamming the cost. It's worth it. Just know that it's on the higher end for a blue collar town.

    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.
