First time here and we came for the 9-11 happy hour. Waitress brought our check and the happy hour items were at full price. I brought this to her attention and she said the happy hour menus are at the high tables in the front. I was a bit confused on different pricing depending on where you sit in the restaurant? Unless the portions for the happy hour prices are smaller? Not sure.

One of the best meals we've had in a while. Highly recommend going family style so you can try a variety of entrees and sushi. The duck and fried rice entrees were especially spectacular.

Delicious food, attentive service. Huge fan of the fact that they ran to Jeni's to get me non-dairy ice cream to eat with the plantains. I don't know the last time a restaurant inconvenienced itself that much for my dietary needs.

The restaurant atmosphere was basic, but pleasant and comfortable. It was our first time to visit and we all enjoyed our food. We stuck with basic selections and liked our order, so would now know to feel confident in trying other dishes. Our waitress took great care of us and our order was served in a very reasonable amount of time. ..... We enjoyed!

All fresh and the recommended, in-house specialty roll, I think it was called the dragon, was fantastic. Highly recommend. So was the Thai iced tea.

Waitress was wonderful!! Music, some rave crap, was monotonous and overwhelming (are you a dance club?). Food good but 5 of 5 spicy is really not that hot. My mother is in her 80's and we were asked to seat at a table with high seats. Not easy for her. I would still recommend but not enthusiastically.

We really enjoy Lemongrass. Although their menu has a number of varied options, my wife and I often opt for the Pad Thai. The service could have been a little faster but was not annoyingly slow, and the server was competent and friendly.

The service wasn’t great tonight, we had a fairly big party and felt as though we were waiting for a long time in between courses as well as waiting for our checks to be taken. One person at our table received her food almost 15 minutes after everyone else had received theirs. The food overall was very good as well as the drinks and dessert. We just wished we didn’t have to sit for an hour and a half long dinner that probably didn’t need to take that long.

Cody took great care of us and we had a nice evening catching up over drinks and appetizers - which turned into dinner. Lemongrass Fusion has a nice happy hour menu and lends itself well to sharing small plates. Also had the pad thai - and would not get the chicken again as there wasn't enough to warrant an upcharge. The pad thai was delightful and would have been just fine without the small amount of chicken added.

This is my favorite restaurant. Has been for 20 years. The only thing I noticed Saturday night was something slight has fallen off of the plating of dishes and care taken in cooking. It used to be that every item would be perfectly plated, the signature puffed pastry would be bubbly and perfect. Also, my Lemongrass signature cocktail was not cold...

Still love it, but you asked

Upon arrival the host at lemongrass was not very warm, we did not feel welcomed at the restaurant. The decorations were very mismatched, and the restaurant itself did not seem very clean. We sat down, and actually started looking up different restaurants to go to because it took nearly ten minutes for a server to bring water over. I do not believe this was the servers fault at all, it did honestly seem like the issue stemmed from poor management. There was a table sitting next to us, halfway through their meal and the manager came over and told them to move their food and drinks to a different table because she wanted their table for another party, which is incredibly unprofessional. The server was nice, and was attentive after the initial hiccup and the food was okay. I was not wowed, and did not feel like I got my money’s worth.

The best thing about Lemongrass is one of their cocktails, but I forget what is was called. I'd sit there all day and drink the cocktail and have appetisers. The Scallops I ate were splendidly cooked and quite flavourful, as was the service and ambiance at lunchtime. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was very bland and uninteresting. Chicken sate was chicken breasts on a plate with some sauce. Tuna steak had very little flavor, and quite odd to serve on penne with artichoke and garlic - strange combo. Menu is a quirky mix that isn't coherent. Waitstaff was great, no complaints there. Meh.

As always, a great time was had been all! Good food, interesting drink options, great personnel. Our waiter was a little harried trying to wait tables as well as seat new comers, but she did a great job regardless. Would like to see more “by the glass” wine options. Will always return due to the variety of menu items, especially the small plates.

Food was decent. Took forever to get seated for our reservation. After we ordered our drinks the waiter dropped the tray, spilling the drinks on 2 of our guests and on one of the guests designer hand bag. Waited a while for refills and all the food and appetizers came out at the same time. Overall experience was less than desired.

I was very underwhelmed my Lemongrass. I heard of Lemongrass Fusion Bistro before and thought it would be a nice and yummy dinner to go out with my family friend I had not seen in a while. I was very unpleasantly surprised by the appearance and food at Lemongrass. I received below average sushi and an extremely costly check. Not a good combination if you ask me.
