Had a VERY nice, quite lunch last week with a dear old friend. Unlike a few other restaurants I have reviewed, this was/is always clean, with exceptional, lite food. I ordered two small plates and was very satisfied. Eating in the Bar area is an option, if you are alone, but the main dining area is roomy and very open.... More

Truly a dining experience! I found Lemon Grass to be an unexpected jewel and had to go back the very next day. Every item on the menu is unique and screams out for freshness, careful preparation and great tastes. This one of the few restaurants that we will travel hours to visit for its remarkable and unusual fine dining.

We live nearby but have avoided Lemon Grass as it is not in the most appealing location (set back next in a parking lot next to some sketchy store fronts) and our previous experiences weren't memorable. However, I was blown away by the quality on a recent dinner with my wife. The food was beautifully displayed, the taste palate was... More

We went to Lemon Grass for a birthday lunch with some co-workers. It is a great place for people who like garlic and French-Asian cuisine. Service has always been good. Food is great. We love their Mango Iced Tea in that it is not overly sweet. While not being super fancy, it is a perfect restaurant for us.

Went for a dinner meeting with 15 colleagues and the food was very good. We had salad roll, crispy spring roll, green curry, pad Thai, pan seared basa(white fish), white and brown rice. The food was freshly prepared and the portions generous. The wait staff was polite.

I reviewed Lemon Grass here on Tripadvisor in 2008 and called it the best restaurant in town. I am sad to say my last few meals have been not so good and the last one was pretty bad. Even the one thing I always had, the crispy vegetarian rolls were not good. This is very sad because I've been going... More

Six of us went to Lemon Grass, not our first time. The service was good, perhaps not quite as attentive as it could have been, but certainly satisfactory and nothing was done wrong. The menu selection was very good, varied, something for everyone (and I mean everyone as they have a separate gluten-free menu available) and plenty to choose from.... More

Consistently a PERFORMER! Never a bad meal at this professional and solid restaurant. This is our GO TO restaurant. FRESHNESS served with appetizing complimentary sides. Whether seafood or veggie or meat or curry, TASTE and apparel dominate the dishes.

Lemon Grass is a go-to winner as far as I am concerned, excellent for lunch or dinner. I would describe the atmosphere as casual -elegant, not fancy but very nice and very comfortable. The food is Vietnamese based with some French infusion, and innovations by owner Mai Pham. The rice-paper wrapped salad rolls are a marvelous starter. Most recently I... More

Lunch here today was a delight. The dining room is bright and airy. The decor is beautiful with white linen and flowers on the tables. The menu has something for every taste and there are daily specials. We were seated by a window and our server was efficient and helpful. The food is well prepared, seasoned perfectly and attractively presented.... More
