This is our favorite place in Fort Lauderdale. We highly recommend experiencing once and then you will return. Only occasionally, like this evening, were we rushed by our server to complete our meal and leave. I believe that he was young and inexperienced. All other times were perfectly paced and relaxed. Perhaps with time, he will understand the finer points of timing and pace.

The food and service at this place were excellent!! They have a great variety of sushi and small plates. I recommend the Volcano roll! The staff was really friendly too and they brought out a free dessert for my sisters bday with writing on the plate. They were also very nice when we asked them to take pictures of us. I am looking forward to going back.

If you like Asian food, this restaurant is a must. The selection was amazing- you could choose from many Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese foods. I must say that all our selections (Curry Puffs, Tom Kah Soup, Ginger Sauce Stirfry & Masaman Curry) were delicious - we will definitely return. In addition, not only was the food good, the service was impeccable.

My wife and I have eaten here on several occasions, without fail the service and food is great. The Sushi rolls are unique, creative and very fresh. The Pad Thai and other non Sushi meals are equally good. Lunch or Dinner the service and the food has always been exceptional.

Unpretentious restaurant of a family group of 3 or 4 Boca to Fort Lauderdale. Excellent soup with lobster dumplings, Two types of Sea Bass, both very tasty; duck pho and stir fry were also enjoyable. Full bar. Went with family and spent a long time . People brought a surprise birthday cake and management served it whilst staff all sang! Family run and very gracious. It gets very crowded after 730.
Looking forward to trying the sushi soon.

We had not been to this place for 8 years, don't know why. Too many other options in the neighborhood, maybe. Anyway, we did a revisit last Sat. night and it was fabulous! The food was amazing, and service excellent. We had a variety of dishes from soup to curry to sushi to pad thai to cashew chicken, and all were fresh and delicious. We will not wait 8 years to go back.

Food was exceptional. Our table shared edamame, miso glazed sea bass, conch and octopus salad and himachi sashimi for appetizer; the conch and octopus salad was the best and like nothing I'd had before. We also shared 5 different rolls - Lobster Monster is worth every penny and the cucumber-wrapped ones are a great change to the usual rice.

We really liked this restaurant... we thought the food and service was great... One thing we didn't really like was that there was a family with a small baby in a high chair near the entrance of the restaurant and the family was letting the baby make a huge mess on the floor throwing food. That's not the restaurant's fault though just bad parenting. We will definitely visit again.

It's always a complete and utter joy to dine here, as I've done on many occasions. The food is fresh, flavorful and attractively presented. The service is attentive but never obtrusive. I also marvel at the moderate prices given the quality of the food and service.

This place has wonderful food, but if you are looking for an intimate and quiet dining experience this is not it. The tables are way too close together so you end up feeling like you are dining with the strangers literally inches away from you in some cases.

My four companions and I all thought that the food at Lemongrass was all delicious. We tried a wide variety of small plates, sushi and more. The Lobster Monster roll was amazing, as was the Papaya Salad. The kitchen was very generous with the protein component of each dish. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and our service was impeccable! We will definitely be returning at our first opportunity!

Making our online reservation was nice and easy.when we arrived they had our reservation ready for us although at the time we arrived the place was practically empty.we then had a choice to choose which table to eat at.the food was good but not that vegetarian friendly although there was tofu but unfortunately is made out of soy.whenever we said thank you to the helpers delivering our food,,they wouldn't respond back by at least saying thank you or at least smiling
The ambiance was great and food was tasty.

We dined with friends, a last minute reservation. The conch/octopus salad and the tuna cups were stand outs. Not so impressed with the fried rice as the meats were dry and of little flavor. Seabass in white miso was luscious! Will be back to try other dishes and sushi rolls.

Service is getting progressively worse and last Sunday it was downright terrible- waiters reaching in front of us, no refills, servers never checking if we needed anything so we had to hunt them down and the restaurant was not busy at all. It will be quite awhile before we return. My husband ended up having to tip the waiter very well or nothing (he chose well) only because the waiter asked if we needed change or never came back and we were tired of waiting for him to return. Lesson learned, always use CC or have small bills.

This place is fantastic. It is small, so telling too many people will make it hard to get into on the coveted Friday and Saturday nights!
Service is spot on, food presented and prepared with pride. Their house plum wine is excellent with the sushi rolls. The lobster won ton soup has 3 large won tons with plenty of lobster meat. I dine here at least every 2 weeks and have a great meal every time.

Lemongrass Asian Bistro was an excellent experience. I took a girlfriend for her birthday and it was the perfect setting for food and friends catching up. The wait staff was very helpful to us first timers and had some great recommendations. The food was so good. I tried the curry puff for appetizer and it was so flavor-able. My lobster pad thai was from the specials list so do not know if it will be there often, but it was perfect and it had a sizeable portion of lobster. Go enjoy.

Friday evening and you're running out of wine??? Except for the expensive ones?
The food was from meh to awesome: Their ginger-orange-coconut??? salad dressing was to die for! While the tempura for the calamari was nice and crispy, it was flavorless: and the calamari were super fine cut and dried out. My husband's duck with ginger sauce was superb! My chicken sate was ok, the peanut dip however much too sweet for my taste. The papya salad was good, just had a bit too much iceberg lettuce added. Why iceberg in the first place? Romaine brings so much more to it! Or bibb lettuce!

We met another couple for dinner saturday night. The staff were clearly happy to see us and gave prompt attentive service throughout the evening, The spring roll appetizers and entrees were all excellent. The atmosphere is clean, cool and zen like. Our only disappointment was the desert. We had a hazelnut truffle which wasn't great. I got the feeling it came out of a frozen box pre-made. I could be wrong, but i'll pass on desert next time. Otherwise, everything was excellent and we'll give it another try.

Lemongrass is a small restaurant but it produces excellent dishes with layers of flavors. Calamari tempura had a light breading that was just heavenly, crispy on the outside, flavorful on the inside. Shrimp with Ginger Sauce and Shrimp Pad Thai were both complex dishes, loaded with shrimp and many flavors. Next time, I will skip the sashimi style roll, a no-rise roll with shrimp, tuna and salmon but the sauce just made it messy and at $9 was overpriced. Still most of the dishes here are reasonably priced. Our bill for 2 appetizers, 2 entriees, dessert and 3 martinits was less than $50. Lemongrass also has small plates, perfect for sharing, as well as full-sized entrees.

One of my favorite dishes was changed a little, but I don't mind. Overall, I really like the place because the food choice taste good, the staff seems very friendly and the ambiance is really nice.
