We have dined here before and enjoyed it. The acoustics are good so conversation can be conducted at a normal volume of speech. However, the food, though good, was served in portions noticeably smaller than those to which we had become accustomed. So we felt that it has become quite over-priced.

Often overlooked, this is a great local Bellaire lunch spot. Their menu labels gluten free items which makes their menu very friendly if you have dietary restrictions. I love their papaya salad and their steak salad is also delicious. The vegetable napoleons is a real standout and so are the sweet potato fries. Do yourself a favor and save room... More

This is a delightful restaurant, and without TripAdvisor, I certainly would never have known it existed. Two points to TA! I very much enjoyed every about it except that irritating label. Lemongrass Cafe bills itself as "Asian Fusion" and lots of TA reviewers repeat that buzz phrase; personally I loathe it. If any restaurant of any genre has a stellar... More

Every time I go to Lemongrass, I must get the appetizer dish of pan-fried pork dumplings. Something about these are just so much better than anywhere else! I order a whole dozen and make it my full meal. My mom loves the pork skewers and a side of jasmine rice. My son loves the beef satay wrap. My daughter likes... More

Incredibly innovative cuisine - Asian fusion with an amazing Hispanic cook who makes magic like the citrus dressing, out of this world broths and soups and perfect pepper coated tuna. Worth the trip to Bellaire!

Lemon Grass is a great restaurant in the heart of Bellaire with consistent quality over many years. I tried their green papaya salad based on a recommendation. Even though I don't like papayas, this salad is awesome.

This is a nice restaurant. Very comfortable and not loud like most restaurants these days. They have a very interesting menu. Make sure to visit them for their happy hour. They make the best lemon drop martinis and for only $5!

The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed, with a modern décor that engages the eye yet soothes the senses. Seating can be at either tables or booths indoors, and with nice weather, they also offer a few outdoor tables (although I wonder if those who complain about "mediocre" service have exiled themselves to those outside tables). With a menu of enticingly... More

Periodically we return to this neighborhood restaurant, mostly because it is convenient and the food is creative and consistent. When it opened, we had high hopes the place would grow in creativity and would become one of the leading restaurants, not only in Bellaire but in greater Houston. However, that has not happened. In part, because the menu has not... More
