We had dinner here during restaurant week and were pleasantly surprised. The beet salad was dressed perfectly. If you are looking for deliciously cooked swordfish, search no further. I am not crazy about risotto but their pulled chicken risotto with winter squash scored a ten. We can not wait to return to try other dishes on the menu!

Blue Lemon feels like home. The quality of the food is extraordinary, the soft music is usually of the Sinatra kind, the art collection changes periodically, it is an intimate and quiet place to dine, the wait staff is very attentive, it is easily handicapped accessible, the chef always surprises with delightful menus, and I think I would rather go...

We eat here every few months (aided by Restaurant.com discounts) and always find the food and service to be first rate.

Our server John was very attentive, professional but customer-friendly. Our dinner was excellent. My wife started with "The Taste of Spain", a combination of Spanish meats and cheeses, which clearly demonstrates the restaurant's Mediterranean flair. I had the lamb shank which was off the bone tender and tasted like "butter". TRY IT, YOU'LL LIKE IT!!!

The service was great but overall this was a truly disappointing. My parents eat here often and rave but we waited almost 1.5 hours for the main course. Steak was basic, vegetables not cooked. Lamb and scallops were tasteless. Everyone seemed to be waiting so we were not alone in our frustration. Would not return and cannot recommend.

If this is No.1 Restaurant in Westport, then we should look for other towns to dine. The place is small and outdated, especially the bathrooms. The tables are very close to each other. The waiter Jeff was very good, but the food was a disappointment. I ordered 1.5 lbs lobster risotto for $39 and there was very small amount of... More

Having checked the reviews, we decided to take a try and glad we did, parking was in the parking lot which can be confusing but take myrtle ave in town . Wine list was lovely outdoor seating in a covered patio area, and delightful with fresh beautiful flowers. Service was not pushy , I am sure this place fills up... More

I am embarrassed to say how many times I have dined here. In fact I don't know. What I do know is when I can go out without the kids this is where I go. It is my own personal Cheers. I have been asked by hubs not to say anything so that it won't be too crowded when we... More

Your not going to find food better, than Blue Lemon in CT. Great food and the best service, a real winner. You could talk and you can dine outside, the house wine was excellent. I can usually find something that needs fixing but not last night......it was the best.

When you're looking for fine cuisine in Westport in a lovely low-key setting that is quiet for ease of conversation, Blue Lemon is a perfect choice. The pretty and spacious room has an elegant yet contemporary feel, dressed up with interesting artwork. The numerous times we have dined here the food has been excellent with service to match.
