“Awesome restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I travel all over the country. Blue Lemon is one of the best restaurants in the nation. Excellent food. Excellent service. Beautiful restaurant. Incredible value for the money. Five stars! My wife and I ate dinner there last week for the first time. We're still talking about it. You guys rock!

What a lovely restaurant. The food is always creative and the service could not be better. It never disappoints.

“A Solid Performance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Most of the reviews affirm the consistency in their quality. Our recent experience underscored the dining room's charm and the wide scope of their cuisine. A reading of their website underscores their citizenship in support of local good causes. There is also admirable support of local artists, and thus patronage of culture.

More simply and directly, my wife and I had a very delightful lunch with a good friend on a quiet Monday here. The fish mains were prepared deftly and plated with a very attractive presentation. The homemade ice cream and fruit tarts were a perfect coda. Pleasant music was playing in the background and we had a very agreeable waiter who made tactful suggestions and also gave us a little background on the rotating art work on the restaurant walls. While not all the paintings were to our taste, the encouragement to creativity is praiseworthy.

I am glad we are at a stage in life when we can take an afternoon off and share it with a good friend. At least on a day early in the week, this was a perfect setting for that unhurried event. We look forward to coming back and trying more dishes from this very capable chef. Into their 11th year, it seems that Blue Lemon has earned its stripes in a competitive and sophisticated town. Perhaps, after further visits, we might move the rating even further to the right.

“Perfect place to eat before going to the Westport County Playhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We visited the Blue Lemon before going to the Westport County Playhouse. The food was really amazing. We decided to have small plates and dessert. Small plates tasted were Roasted Chicken and Chorizo Chilaquilles, Pan Seared Crab Cakes and one of their specials. They were really excellent. The desserts were amazing. The Blue Lemon Tart is justly voted the number one lemon tart in Connecticut. It was delicious. The warm apple crisp was wonderful and the white chocolate creme caramel mouth watering. I would love to return for dinner. I definitely recommend the restaurant, the owner/chef was very helpful.
