I am looking for an opinion. Thanks
Was only there once for an early dinner. And my experience was kind of...well...blah. It was just on the side of being "ok". Actually, I don't even remember what I ate, it was that unspectacular.
Hopefully, someone will contradict me, lemongrass has been there for some time, I can't imagine an unimpressive restaurant would last that long.
With a couple of exceptions, I'd have to agree. I've been there a few times and also to their sister restaurant "Riz" across the street. Their crab dish is messy and excellent and their house rice (3 varieties) is also very tasty. Beyond those things, I have found every other dish to be very bland and very mediocre. Cool decor but nothing inspired in my view.
I was surprised the last time we went - the service was ... dare I say it... friendly! We even ended up asking the waiter if they had changed owners!
The food was excellent and we had a great time - but this was our 9th visit (since we live locally, it's a better choice)...
Try it... best when it's not too busy! Shrimp lemon veggie soup is nice...
