Best Food and Service!!

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... read 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.

the owner takes your order. And since you closed your menu, you don't realize the hummus is $8 a plate, which he places 3 on the table and the soup/ salad are the same. Then, because we had a large party he added the gratuity to the total bill. (20%) we will never go back or recommend it.

I love this restaurant. The food is creative, beautifully presented and superb quality. They try very hard to be non-intrusive while attentive. I love being able to bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it at the restaurant.

Great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommend! BYO which My wife and I like. Stop with supporting all the chain restaurants and support a small business that's well worth it. Going tonight and can't wait.!!!!

I love Lemon Mediterranean Restaurant and happy it is in my neighborhood. From the lunch buffet to their dinners all the food is full of flavor right down to the desserts. Chef Ash adds to it with his warm smile as he greets all the customers to make sure they are enjoying their meal. Great Chef, Great food, Great staff... More
