Great lunch service, tea and ambiance, but I thought the food (lemongrass soup and orange chicken) were over stylized. Orange chicken was coated puffballs of ground chicken?, not, that I could determine, whole prices of chicken, which presented an unsatisfying texture. The soup had zucchini in it and lots of it, and was light on the lemongrass. But overall I would be happy to go there again and try different selections.

One of our favorites when we visit Columbus! The menu has great variety — from gluten free, to vegan, with wonderful sushi. They have a very nice wine list, as well and make creative and delicious cocktails.

Overall, we had a good experience and will be happy to return for another meal. We were sat right away and our server was attentive. However, as we all (4 people) decided to share appetizers, a bottle of champagne, and each ordered an entree, the table itself was entirely too small for everything to fit; making all of us feel cramped and uncomfortable. Also, maybe our server was new, but she was unable to open the bottle of champagne and asked one of us to open it for her.

Lots of good options but I choose the shrimp, scallop and crab cakes. Sauce was coconut oil based, creamy and really good. Scallops were good, not great and crab cakes should be named salmon cakes (not all that good). But overall a really nice place. We were just passing through and they were accommodating to mom who has some diet restrictions. I’m from New England and love seafood so probably a bit snobbish when it comes to seafood, so if u are local I am sure you’ll love it if u live near the ocean, maybe it will be just OK food wise, but everything else was good.

Arrived at 2:45 (reservation at 3:00) were given the lunch menu. When just about to order at 3:15 menus were taken away from us and dinner menu given to us stating they gave us the wrong menu. Some of us already had decided on items from lunch menu that are not available on dinner. Were sternly told they would make it but for future reference that would not be done.
Food ranged from good to average.

On a whim, I brought my girlfriend here for dinner since it was both our first time. As a food connoisseur, I love frequenting new local eateries. To say the least, I had a memorable experience here at lemongrass. Our waiter was very suggestive and accommodating and the dishes we ordered were zestful and piping hot. Only drawback I may take is I did not care too much for the chicken sate appetizer. The peanut sauce was a little too rich to my liking and the chicken was slightly insipid. I was expecting it to be akin to the Thai dish “chicken satay” which typically is skewered, grilled and lightly dab with sauce. Nevertheless, I would definitely return to this establishment in the near future and have another meal.

My partner and I have been to Lemongrass several times before. Tonight we were hoping for a quiet dinner together to celebrate Valentines Day. We entered the restaurant; the host station and bar were upfront and music from the bar area seemed quite loud which in my opinion leads the patrons to have to speak louder to hear each other across the table. The whole restaurant then was too noisy (energetic, as Opentable calls it). We always enjoy the food, the service was fine. For the money spent, we were disappointed with the experience.

Delicious sushi, soup and spicy duck dish. The food was worth the near absent wait staff. The flavors are truly a fusion of various Asian cuisines. The presentation was beautiful and not overstated (no tweezers for the chef). The requested adjustments were spot on. Now, if the wait staff could be trained to visit the table on a timely basis, I would gladly give this venue all stars.

Thoroughly enjoyable dinner! Hostess was accommodating and moved our table away from the door (it was cold). Food was beautifully presented and delicious, and prices were very reasonable. Also had one glass of wine that was excellent. I especially appreciated that several of the menu items provided vegan variations with separate entrée names to make ordering very easy. I will make a point to go to Lemon Grass again now that I know how good it is. Was also pleasantly surprised that there was a valet parking service for just $10 - well worth the price for the super convenience.
