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

The specials were very good my husband had a hawaiian fish that was delightlful. I ordered the Moqueca, a Brazilian fish stew which was delicious on a cold... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed the food. We especially enjoy cooking some of the more interesting dishes like the nairagi from Hawaii. We work with a local gallery to keep the art fresh and interesting, so hopefully your next visit it will be more to your liking. We look forward to your next visit. all the best, bryan 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!!!

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
