First time to this location. When we arrived and I told them we had a reservation through Open Table they told me they don’t honor those reservations as they are trying to end that service. What???? Never heard of this. People waiting was insane. Outdoor seating was packed. We chose inside. Table were better spaced. It was a very busy night. Took 30 minutes to get our appetizer and drinks; 2 of the 3. Had to keep asking for 3rd. Ordered dinner when appetizers were served. Dinner did not take as long. 1 of the 2 dishes was just lukewarm. I like my food piping hot! It was not what we expected. So we ordered another roll. Then for dessert we wanted Thai donuts. They said they don’t have! What Thai restaurant has no Thai donuts???? We left disappointed. Not sure I would return. If we do definitely not on a Friday night!

We love it here! The atmosphere is relaxing, the service impeccable and the food consistently delicious! We enjoyed the spring rolls, lobster pad Thai sand the crispy duck. The cocktails were perfectly mixed also.

This was such a disappointing experience because I liked Lemongrass the other times we dined there. And the couple we dined with normally really enjoy Lemongrass. Two of us ordered your ‘Signature Lobster Pad Thai’ I love Pad Thai normally but how awful that you refer to this as your ‘signiture’ dish! The lobster was so overcooked we could not cut into it. (Half the price of the pad thai) We asked for steak knives and still couldn’t cut into it. The noodles were dry and the dish was Luke warm. We would have given it back but waited sooo long for it to arrive and didn’t want the other two to have to wait on new orders. I barely ate any of mine but brought it home and totally doctored it up for the next day including much more pad thai sauce for the dry noodles—after I gritted my teeth and threw out the lobster :( Our service was okay. Nice woman but would have been good if she filled out water bottle so we could fill our glasses that sat empty for a looong time! Your patio is very nice...and surprisingly your House Chardonnay was delicious! (I was never asked if I’d like another glass after mine sat empty just after my entree was served—so difficult to find our server to ask myself)......

When we arrived we were told we did not have a reservation. They said they do not take online reservations. We had to wait another 15 minutes to be seated.
The waitress was terrible, she was never around when she brought food she ran away before we could talk to her. We had to ask other people to help us. The whole evening was a very bad experience.

Plenty of covered outside seating if concerned about eating inside, we ate indoors and it was spaced out enough that we felt comfortable. Food was very good, restaurant was very busy on a Friday night could have used more wait staff. We would eat there again.

Outside open air dining provides a nice venue for people watching and most importantly, safely enjoying the warm Florida nighttime fresh air.
Happy hour (4-6) is a great value and provides a wide selection of delicious, everyday, appetizers—spring rolls, sushi, retried rice, which, collectively, make up a more than satisfied meal.
Service was attentive, as usual. One of our favorite Boca stops.

First and foremost, I’m a foodie and. Sushi snob. This our favorite Sushi restaurant. The fish is always fresh and the chefs are very talented. No matter what you order they take pride in the dish.

We order from the menu the Holy Snapper. It was fantastic. Lightly fired, well seasoned, with the filets on the side. It looks and tastes amazing.

I’ve been to Lemongrass many times and it has
always been one of my go to places but I was disappointed with my last visit. The service was not great, the food so-so, and the tables packed together outside a little too close for my comfort during COVID. The waiter was not attentive. We had to request plates and a fork for appetizers, which were never brought, and did not tell us what the daily specials were. (We found out there were specials after we ordered when a different server at a nearby table recited them to the people at that table.) My food came dry and a bit overcooked, but I decided to eat it because the server never came by to ask if everything was ok. I will give Lemongrass another chance but definitely not on a Saturday night when it is so crowded.

Service was great and the food was amazing. I didn’t really like the lemongrass fried rice. The pork strips were a little too big. If they can cut it like the chicken that would be great! I also had the fish fillet which was really good. You can’t go works with the appetizers. Overall the food is really good and I really like the lychee martini.

Very disappointed with the experience here especially after being so excited for our date night to try it out based on the great reviews. Our reservation was for 8:30pm. We arrived and sat inside. We ordered our drinks and after receiving them started ordering appetizers, the waitress advised us to order our entree as well because the kitchen is closing, the restaurant closes at 9pm😳 Online has the closing at 10pm but we assumed they would at least let us eat & enjoy the food and drinks without excessive rushing. Wrong! The patrons that were still there were given their checks to pay and clean up was in full swing, even cleaning our table (picking up straw wrapper & extra plates) as we drank.

When our meals arrived, not even 2 minutes later someone came over to ask if we’d like to-go boxes. The waitress was watching our table on and off so we felt super rushed and the whole date vibe was just killed. My boyfriend lost his appetite and as soon as our waitress returned from sweeping the outside area we requested the check and the to-go boxes. We ended up over in the Mizner Park area and finished our night with drinks and a snack at the bar inside Yard House, which totally redeemed that crappy experience.

What makes it even worse is that the food was delicious at Lemongrass (drinks not so much). But now we’re totally turned off to return a second time. Instead of having 8:30pm reservations available on Opentable they should close the window earlier and definitely update hours of operation. Also, when we checked in at the front with the hostess we should have been told they’re closing at 9pm so we could make the decision to eat elsewhere.
