Met an old friend at Lemon Restaurant last night. We were meeting at a midway point and Lemon seemed like a good choice. It was a wonderful choice. The food was modern but felt like an old master approved the dishes for authentic old world flavor before the plates left the kitchen. Even the quinoa, which is usually kind of... More

I selected this restaurant based on reviews, and I was thrilled I did. We were celebrating my daughters 25th birthday and no one in our party was disappointed. I couldn't have asked for better service and the food was awesome. The dishes were different than your would normally see on a Mediterranean menu. Although it was a bit of a... More

Excellent food, friendly staff. This restaurant meets Europeans standards. Don't forget to bring your own wine! They don't have a license to sell wine. For us Europeans this is a strange rule.....

My wife and I enjoyed a memorable dinner at Lemon Mediterranean Restaurant early one Sunday afternoon in May. The menu, loaded with mouth-watering items, made selection a delightful challenge. (Pay close attention to their specials; they are as appealing.) Chef Ash visited our table to provide us insight into his preparations … a nice touch. My wife started with French... More

This was our first time at Lemon and we will definitely be back for more! Their homemade hummus was delicious. For our appetizers, I had the gnocchi grilled salmon with peaches and ouzo tarragon sauce which tasted like I died and went to heaven! I had never tasted flavor like this before! My husband had peaches stuffed with crabmeat and... More
