What a great surprise

We stopped in on a Saturday night for the first time in Years. Everything was spot on form the Soup (Beet Bisque, Lobster Bisque) through the main courses and sorbets that complemented the meals perfectly.

The food is better here than when it first opened several yeears ago. The recently tole me they had the same chef! The best thing about Blue Lemon is that it is quiet-and you don't have to yell to be heard during dinner. A place to go for a date or intimate dining.

We went here mid week to celebrate and we were very glad we chose this restaurant. Tucked away in a small shopping plaza, it is worth finding because the menu is excellent and they pride themselves on using fresh local produce. Several specials were made to incorporate seasonal ingredients and service was wonderful. A great find. Will definitely go back... More

... Were part of my meal-- seared scallops with orange-flavored overtones in the sauce and the accompanying couscous. I enjoyed it very much. Husband had hangar steak with chimichurri and was also happy. Service was good and pleasant. We arrived early on a theater night, but we did have a reservation. It began to get more crowded shortly after our... More

I really like the orange flavor that flows through the scallop dish, I'm glad you liked it too. While Paul can't visit us anymore, his daughter Melissa sings here once a month with her jazz trio. You should make it down for one of her shows. Thanks again for coming in! Bryan More

An intimate bistro with a refreshingly different menu, loaded with fresh and flavorful ingredients that come together for a full satisfying meal. The only problem is trying to decide which delicious item to have!! Excellent staff that is charming and attentive. Hidden in a small plaza, it is a gem. They have an outdoor patio during the nice weather too.

I have been to the Blue Lemon several times with a groupon and without. The food has been good and the wait staff very nice. The one thing I would ask is for the ownership to shampoo their rug; I know its in a flood area, but you can smell the must in the air. Overall good experience.

Small and intimate dining. Food and service excellent. One of Paul Newmans favorite spots! Great outside dining and nice wine section. Sit outside and watch Westport go by.

Nice atmosphere, very good main dishes, although some can be pricey. Appetizers and deserts expensive, somewhat uneven. For example, the Caesar salad had stale croutons, and the cinnamon ice cream on the apple tart was tasteless. But overall, one of the best restaurants in Westport, and one that I would recommend.

Thanks for dining with us. This time of year we battle the humidity to keep our croutons crunchy, I guess we weren't winning the day you visited. Hope to see you again soon. Bryan More
