If your looking for a fun night out try cooking with Chef Ash. You will not be disappointed! His knowledge and expertise in the culinary industry was impressive. He introduced the class to delicious Mediterranean flavors and the simplicity of making several dishes.

Food was good although a bit slow. Simple family friendly atmosphere. A little on the pricey side but all in all a good family dining experience.

My first time eating here...this place is a hidden gem...very modest curb appeal but inside it's a whole different world...I had lamb chop special...simply delicious and cooked to perfection...did not have the "gamey" flavor...if I was blind folded I would never guess I was eating lamb...my friend enjoyed lamb osso bucco...the only minor issue with this place was the music...

I went to Lemon for the first time with my Dad and his girlfriend. They have been raving about Lemon so I was looking forward to eating there. We all ordered appetizers - I had the lamb empanadas and my dad shared a salad with his girlfriend. The empanadas crust was nice and crispy but very greasy. The sauce was... More

This place by far consistently excels in both the quality of food and the service of the staff. The specials are always exciting to hear. The problem is that you can't order them all unless you want to take it all home with you, which isn't such a bad idea. The kale, bosc pears, apple and hazelnut in raspberry vinigarette... More

If you are looking for expertly prepared food and a highly creative menu, you can't go wrong at Lemon. We've eaten there three times over the past two months, and have concluded that this is one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. You must try this place, you will be pleased.

Food is delicious and the chef/owner is very personable. We've been for our parents' anniversary and my birthday. Consistently great and imaginative food. Highly recommend pear & crab appetizer, crab cakes and paella. Salads and hummus are great! Enjoy.

I was very pleasantly surprised how fun and enjoyable this was. Located in a small mall, the food and service were both excellent, and it's BYOB.
