Lovely dinner

We had a wonderful dinner here : a lobster special, the Brazilian sea food stew, a couple of pasta specials; the French Onion soup was also great. Great cocktails (Cosmopolitans) and the service was also excellent : both friendly and efficient.. Recommended.

The Blue Lemon promises much. It's a charming and cozy space with soft music playing. The staff is friendly and helpful, yes. BUT the food simply doesn't match the price. It's good - nice bistro food - but you're paying prices that fit a much higher-end culinary experience. My husband and I shared a crab-cake appetizer. It was a single... More

Really enjoyed the food and service at this restaurant - if they gave the décor an update, they might have a lot more business.

Recent visit with a number of folks. Had not been there in many months. The food is "good", at best. The prices are high yet the quality of the food does not match. Wish I could say otherwise. Of the many things ordered….. A strip steak for $36 that was "OK", certainly nothing more. The seafood stew was tasty but... More

I would have given my experience a 5-star had it not been for my entree. I ordered the salmon which I have ordered there in the past. I always order a salmon entree when I eat out and I've ordered it at Blue Lemon in the past and the portion was generous. However, last nights salmon entree portion could not... More

I was sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the salmon portion the other night. We weigh all our fish portions, but that's not to say we never make a mistake. I wish you would have given us a chance to make it right. We certainly would have brought you another piece of salmon or brought you another dish.... More

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...

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!!!
