It would be 5 stars if the restaurant acknowledged the occasion. My reservation was marked “birthday”, but no special acknowledgement was given

Food and service was great. What my complaint is that we were squeezed into a narrow space where the waitstaff passed by and constantly bummed into me throughout the dinner. This made for a very unpleasant experience. The hostess knew very well what she was doing despite the fact that we had made reservations.

Outstanding food as I've come to expect from Lemon Grass. Was a theater night so busier than normal for mid-week. Doesn't excuse getting charged $60 for bottle of wine clearly listed as special for Dining Week at $35 (and per local wine merchant they pay like $13 for!). Desserts were works of art and delicious even if $13 each (which wasn't listed on the dessert menu). Started off with 6 oysters ($20) which were splendid. Don't take my wife and daughter out enough so $200 dinner bill for 3 of us wasn't unexpected but rather pricey to come to Lemon Grass more than once or twice a year.

My friend and I went there a couple of nights ago to try their dining week menu. The whole experience was great! Our server, Joe, was outstanding! We had the corn soup, the spring rolls, the filet and the swordfish w bistro sauce! We also tried one of their scrumptious chocolate dessert. Everything was delicious and we’ll definitely be back!

We were there for lunch, so the restaurant wasn't that crowded. We loved everything except that if there had been more people we would have felt a little crowded in and not able to have a private conversation.

While visiting Syracuse over the weekend, we stumbled upon Lemon Grass. The food, service and ambiance was excellent! We were seated in the back bar area and there was a wonderful jazz duo playing which was an added bonus to a perfect dining experience. Look forward to visiting again on our next trip to Syracuse!

I would not go back to Lemongrass, it’s not worth the value. For the amount of money we spent the food was just ok and I was underwhelmed with the service.

Food excellent but expensive. No ambiance. Tables on top of each other. I had employees bumping in to the back of my chair four times...once hitting the back of my head.

I love this place. The best desserts in town! Best thai food in CNY but they have a variety for people that don’t like spicy food.

The food was outstanding and the the wine was delicious. The staff was great. Everyone made sure you were taken care of. It is pricey but the food is so well made and the choices are abundant that it is worth it. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We were greeted by a smile and brought to a beautiful table. Jamie was our sever and he was great. We ordered a great bottle of wine and the Steaky bacon and the Pear and Blue salad as appetizers. Both were very flavorful and delicious. For the dinners, we both ordered the Thai baked Pot. We also shared an excellent dessert named the Chocolate Can can. It was our first time to this restaurant as we will definitely go back. The service, wine, dinner and dessert were exquisite.

We have been going to Lemongrass for more than 25 years. It is constantly excellent. The service is excellent, the setting is lovely without being pretentious, and the good is outstanding. Always. Remember to save room for dessert. In addition to being delicious, the desserts are works of art, almost too beautiful to eat. Almost. I highly recommend Lemongrass for call occasions, even a random weekday dinner.

Inventive Thai fusion. Crispy duck lives up to its reputation. Lovely dining room with colorful large paintings adorning the walls. Real find in Syracuse!

Great flavors that are uniquely mastered, many interesting menu selections. The curries are amazing and all of our deserts were creative and delicious.

On the down side, I thought the wine list was extremely weighted toward the $150+ range and not enough selection in the $60 to $110 range.

This was my second time and will definitely return.

Everything was perfect. Our favorite beverage was not in stock but an alternate was acceptable. Scallops were cooked to perfection.

Returned to Syracuse to visit friends and went to Lemon Grass, one of my favorite local places. The food is always exotic and outstanding, and this visit was the same. Pricey place, yes. One of my dining companions had to send his meal back, but they were very accommodating about it. Wine was superb. Meal delicious and service was great.

I am usually over the moon with Lemon Grass but this time I was a little disappointed. One of the couples at my tables ordered an appetizer but the waitress forgot all about it. She asked if they wanted it when reminded, but they had already received their dinner. I think a restaurant that cares about customer service should have brought it anyway, without charge. The food was good, but not as outstanding as usual. The swordfish was surprisingly a little dry. I will be back but I hope this isn’t a sign of things slipping at what’s been one of my favorite.
