The food is very good. Reservations are usually necessary. It's a BYOB . We will definitely be back to visit

Everything was fabulous. The appetizer was a special. We also ordered the homemade hummus which was excellent. I had a vegetarian couscous dish. My husband had a fish dish which was a special. Both fabulous and full of flavor. Beautiful presentation. For dessert we had a almond pound cake, which was a special as well. I am very picky and... More

Food was very good, very fresh. The acoustics weren't great so it was hard to hear the conversation. Overall, very good.

We had dinner at Lemon last night with good friends. None of us had ever eaten there before and wanted to try it out. It was amazing - one of the best meals I have had in a very long time! From the minute we walked in the door, we felt welcomed. The waiter immediately opened our wine (BYOB) and... More

We attended the Thanksgiving cooking class with another couple. We thoroughly enjoyed the demonstrations and explanations of the foods to be cooked and sampled. Chef Ash is very much into preparing foods from stratch using fresh ingredients. It was very apparent when tasting what a difference this makes. We started with roasted apple and butternut squash soup which was outrageously... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Freehold. We do lunch take out regularly at work, have had Ash cater work events and have been in for dinner multiple times. The food is excellent, octopus appetizer is delish, we have to get it every time we go! I've tried pretty much everything on the menu and all is good.

The lunch buffet at Lemon is the best time to try out this gem as there is a variety of delicious dishes to try. The hummus is amazing, but the rice balls are the star.
