The food was pretty average and the service wasn't that great considering we were there only people in the entire place. I wouldn't recommend.

Went there one evening. Food was good, so was the service. Not too crowded at all. Waiter told me they dont serve wine/beer but apparently customers are allowed to BYOB. Overall it is a pretty decent place unless of course you end up with the wrong waiter. The day we ate we were treated pretty well, so we tipped them well as well.

We love eating at the Lemon Grass Cafe prior to evening shows in the Cultural District. It's right across the street from the Byham and within a couple of blocks of Heinz Theater, Benedum Center, and Pittsburgh Public Theater. Service is very quick at dinnertime. When we were there last week, we were in and out in 35 minutes. The waitress was efficient and friendly. My wife had her usual Yellow Crepes, which are filled with yummy vegetables, choice of meat, and special sauce. I had the Panang tofu, which was delicious. We miss the Andes mints they used to give at the end of meals. They now give boring fortune cookies. One caveat: the last time we were there, the men's bathroom was disgustingly smelly with urine - worse than some of this country's subway stations I've been to. Despite this, we'll be back the next time we go to a show.

Food was ok, hard to go wrong with green curry. Waitress was unfriendly and inattentive, and the food was a little slow getting to the table. I haven't been back sense though some colleagues tend to go back.
