Great Restaurant

The food was fresh, delicious and all the staff very attentive. Because we were on diets and were skipping the bread (warm pita chips) to dip in their homemade hummus, they voluntarily brought us out cucumber and carrot slices instead. How nice! Will definitely be back soon!

Excellent Greek fare/meals. A number of great lamb based apps and entries. Earned a repeat visit by our family.

We were very impressed with Lemon. We have been there a couple of times. It's fine dining with friendly, accommodating staff. Although it is a bit pricey, there are coupons available for 20% off. This is a lovely restaurant with a refreshingly creative menu.

I am not easily impressed and never write reviews. The quality of the ingredients and the amazing flavor of the food compel me to take a minute and write this. My wife and I went there for the first time on Saturday night, the service was top notch(Chad was our waiter), but what was amazing was the food. My wife... More

Decided to try this restaurant on based on nothing but an internet search and given that I would be in the area. Menu looked interesting and once there, I found the service, food and overall experience to be very good. I had dinner with 3 other people. We started with the complimentary house made hummus which was a bit strong... More

Lemon has been and remains our favorite non-sushi restaurant in New Jersey. Chef Ash provides a wide range of dishes, from Morocco to Israel and hitting Greece, Italy, Egypt (his native soil), Lebanon and Turkey along the way. The fresh hummus is to die for but don't eat too much! Food is generous but not your typical NJ-over much meal.

In a hunt for Mediterranean cuisine in my area, I discovered Lemon about 2 years ago & the rest is history...The refined cuisine come with a higher price tag but the delightful food and great service make it all worth it. A more simplified, yet still delicious buffet, is offered for lunch at a lower price. The meals are freshly... More

The food was excellent, but it's expensive. Portion sizes are small, which left us feeling a little unfulfilled after spending a fair amount of money on the meal and appetizers. The biscotti was a nice treat… they were the perfect mate to our cappuccino. We will be back to enjoy another meal, but we're hoping they will be serving slightly... More

Good portions. Great value. Cuisine menu covers Italy, France, Spain, Morocco and Greece. Everything was fresh and reminded me of the heart-healthy Mediterranean fare i have had overseas.
