What a culinary adventure! The wait staff is super chill. The product out of the kitchen is AMAZING! Order it all, order to share, what a fun dinner. Circus for the taste buds.

We enjoyed the Roasted Duck with Orange Tamarind and Filet Mignon. The merged restaurant combines Thai food (Lemon Grass) with traditional steak house cuisine (Bistro Elephant).

The food was overpriced, and neither of us finished our meals because the food wasn't good. I ordered pad Thai. I was displeased with what came. The pad Thai had very few vegetables, and the chicken tasted old. I've been wanting to try this restaurant for years. I'm sorry that it was disappointing.

During the March snowstorm, we made last minute dinner changes to park downtown and eat at Lemon Grass. We walked in and the hostess was happy to seat us without reservations. She was very nice. Our waitress waited on us promptly, taking our drink order. We explained that we had tickets to the show and were interested in tapas only.... More

Lunch on a chilly day was warmed up nicely by the corn and crab soup, followed by their Pad Thai which is the benchmark for that dish. Jasmine tea was the perfect accompaniment, and it reminded us that there is no better place to enjoy Asian cuisine in Central New York than Lemon Grass.

With the amount of our bill, I would have expected to receive the most quality service. The waiter was inattentive, was unable to answer our questions, ultimately he seemed annoyed to be waiting on us. It ruined our evening. The food was very good. We had a mixture of apps, entrees, and desserts. We were all happy with the quality... More

Armory Square is the night entertainment destination in Syracuse. I bring out of town guests to Lemon Grass knowing the service will be gracious and friendly, the food interesting and tasty and the setting relaxed and comfortable. While the menu tilts heavily to thai fusion, you can also get a beautiful cut of meat simply prepared. The wine selection is... More
