I was skeptical at first, but the great food and service won me over. I have yet to have a meal there that I did not love, even when I try something new!

While everything here is good, I love their soups. This trip I had the beef noodle soup. The portion was huge and I liked they give you bean sprouts, peppers and lime on the side.

The chicken in the ginger dish was dry. And the fried rice I have had better examples of So that is not to... More

Food quality is high, service is considerate, choices are varied. At times it's a little noisy but the meals are worth the occasional annoyance.

Came on a Monday night. With a reservation for 4. Was less than half full. Were seated right away but that was the end of the good service. Every step took to long and it was extremely difficult to get the waiters attention. The food was ok. Had a curry dish that was very bland. One of asked for our... More

Enjoyed a quick dinner. Appetizer plate was good and a complete meal The salmon was well cooked and entree was served on a bed of noodles - more than enough food. Service was good and place is filled with regular customers.

Great lunch prices and generous portions. Salad lovely. Great fresh flavors. Closes at 3 so plan accordingly. Reopens for dinner. Lots of street parking close by. Bring coins for the meters. Highly recommended.

I was introduced to Lemongrass by a client in the area. We went there for lunch and I was blown away by the wonderful food and nice, modern ambiance. SINCE then, I've probably been back 5 times. Thai food had not been on our radar much, but we have found ourselves driving 12 miles just to come to Lemongrass, when... More

I love this place! Correction, I love the food here. The same gentlemen who welcomes you, if that's what you want to call it, and sometimes takes our order depending on where we sit; is always a smart mouth rude person. I've even spoken with him over the phone to make a to-go order and he is always the same.... More
