An eclectic award-winning combination of cuisines including Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese. Lemongrass Asian Bistro has always been the neighborhood favorite. With reasonable prices, world class food and service, Lemongrass always delivers. No matter what type of cuisine you desire, you'll find something you'll love on the extensive menu. The sushi rolls are particularly inventive, with many choices you won't likely find anywhere else. Sunsentinel : Top 10 Asian Restaurant in Florida ...............................................

"Started with happy hour at bar with select appetizers 1/2 price as well as cocktails. Well prepared gyoza and chicken satay. The lobster tail pad Thai special entree was succulent with two big chunks of lobster tails. The pad Thai was yummy. The Oh Seabass is consistently well prepared and with sauce on side a very healthy dish. Lemongrass gets very busy during dinners but the kitchen is on top if orders and wait staff keep the flow of food coming to the table. HOWDY is our favorite waiter, always provides attentive service. Brought dessert as a comp to recognize our birthdays, very thoughtful."

"The Passover dinner was well prepared and appreciated. Farmer's Table continues to offer special holiday menus in addition to regular menu offerings, which is a nice touch. The scallops are tasty, as are the other fish entrees, such as the salmon. Chicken wings are a yummy sharing appetizer, be prepared to use your fingers. Cocktails are well made and strong. Service by Denice was well orchestrated, food comes from the well staffed kitchen quickly, even during peak dining hours."

"For my own and spouse's birthday dinners, we had many Boca restaurants to select from, and decided on LaStella's. They continue to achieve outstanding customer service, have added new "eager to please" wait staff, a host/general manager (MATT), and WEEKLY SPECIALS which are truly special, exciting, and tasty (chicken meatballs with sweet papers), broiled trout are examples. PORTION SIZES are large enough to SHARE, so ignore negative reviews complaining they are too large! The food is prepared for each table, it will take time, be patient, have a bottle of wine from diverse well priced menu. Leave room for YUMMY DESSERTS, and they only serve espresso, don't complain about no coffee. They get crowded on very weekends, thats a good sign!"

"After a long absence, pleased to report that food/service are impressive. Franz was our excellent server, the chefs still turn out a great meal in their food trailer in this all open air/outdoor bistro. Wines are reasonably priced, and a large enough selection to satisfy. The Caribbean Shrimp was juicy with a tangy sauce, the salads plentiful and creative. Offering pork rinds instead of bread is an interesting twist, and it was surprisingly good. Manager offered us YUMMY birthday desserts on the house, which were appreciated. NOTE: We experienced a heavy rain and thunder storm while dining. All staff got drenched as they continued to bring food from the kitchen - not many others would have carried on with such good humor. UNIQUE"

"New menu offers some nice additions, always appreciate the fish selections and salads. NOTE: Don't be seated at a table in the bar area after 9:30 - you'll likely be distracted by the clean up and set up of the bar for the next day. If management is going to accept reservations that late, sit guests elsewhere."

"Loved the shrimp appetizer, a special I hope is offered again. The chicken francese was two huge pieces of chicken breast, and the sauce was tangy and great on my taste buds. Had a reasonably priced bottle of Argentian Chardonnay and suggest you not pass up their ever changing wine list. Desserts are all well done, leave room."

"Have dined here on many occasions, both lunch and dinner. On this occasion, after the lunch rush, the waiter promptly took the order, it seemed like a longer than necessary wait for a salad and burger. Both were quite good when finally served, but I wonder if there might have been a snafu in the kitchen which deserves some attention from management?"

"The food is locally sourced, many selections are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free. No butter or sugar used in prep, when they promote themselves as healthy, you need not be concerned that it tastes bland or looks unappealing. Just the opposite. Try the rib tacos, the dumplings appetizers, all the salads are large enough to split. Soups change daily and are real tasty. The fish - trout and snapper - were great, each with sides. Pita Bread and Hummus (delish) can be ordered for small charge, not automatically brought to table. The drinks from bar are well made and they don't scrimp on the alcohol. Our waiter was Josh, he is attentive, professional, and knowledgeable on menu items."
