great service, excellent food, nice atmosphere, i went twice: one time alone and the second time with business friends. Both times the food was great and so much that there was no space for desert...and that looked amazing on the other tables.

Everything looks good on the surface but falls apart when you get inside. If you have children don't bother bringing them; the staff will make it clear that they are not welcome. If you have food allergies or intolerance don't bother going; the staff will...More

My family took me here for my birthday dinner. The entire evening was great. Excellent food and wine, in fact that had one of our favorite old vine zifandel. Everything was perfectly cooked and the service was top notch.

An upscale restaurant like this really must have better service. It was half full but it still took forever for everything. Too bad when the food was fantastic as usual.

I love Thai food but this was disappointing. The location is nice and atmosphere good with outside seating. But you can't eat atmosphere. The food is over priced and not very good. Except my Tum yum soup was good. The service was not very good...More

Sometimes returning to a restaurant where one has had a memorable meal does not match up to the prior experience but Lemon Grass proved to be consistent in its quality. We enjoyed a beef vermicelli, bitter green salad with peanut dressing and their soup du...More
