A hidden gem!

This restaurant is an awesome find. The food is fresh and the flavors are to die for. I live near the foodie town of Asheville, NC, and we would welcome you here! Then I could enjoy your food often. We were too full to try any dessert, but the Moroccan coffee was delicious. The atmosphere is a... read more

This hidden gem is one of my all time favorites in NJ. Great cooking and friendly service make this BYOB establishment one that I will never grow tired of and this was only my first visit.

We've passed by many times and since you cannot see inside, we did not know what to expect. However, we were wonderfully surprised by the refined quiet ambience, the gracious service, and the culinary excellence of Lemon Mediterranean. The menu has delightfully different dishes inspired by Greece, Italy, and Spain. My paella was the best I've ever had. And where... More

Soups and appetizers were well presented and flavorful. Ingredients were fresh,using a wide variety of herbs and seasonings . We ordered from their "specials" for the evening, unaware of the cost, which was considerably pricier than we'd expected. The meals were delicious, and truly everyone we have known, who has dined there,has shared our experience. We would not hesitate to... More

What a great meal we just had at Lemon. The food, service and decor. Appetizers were supurb, rice balls and beet salad. Our entrees were even better. I had kufta and my wife had a vegetarian dish called lemon platter. Also the pita with hummus they put on our table when we sat down was wonderful to pick at while... More

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
