“Reviews spot on for Lemon!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Tried Lemon based on all the other excellent reviews, and was not disappointed! Service was excellent and food was delicious! We started with the complementary humus, then tried the rice ball appetizer. Main courses were both off the specials menu-rack of lamb and brisket. We enjoyed everything, and prices were reasonable. Will definitely be back!

“unprepared, sub-par”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was my first time to this restaurant, but others in my party had been there before. They said the food has slipped considerably and agreed it was particularly unworthy on our recent visit.
The owner first tried a hard sell on his special Seder menu. But we were there to celebrate a birthday. When we said we were surprised that he didn't seem prepared to offer an a la cart menu, one of his staff, defensively interjected herself into the conversation, saying, "Well, I put it on the website." Why she expected someone to visit the website when they already knew the restaurant is a mystery
Anyway, the paella was obvious thrown together in a hurry from less-than fresh ingredients. The chicken was tough, there was a mystery meat in the dish it and a not-so-fresh lump of rice was thrown on the side of the skimpy plate of food.
The final insult was when an order of vanilla ice cream arrived as soup. It was sent back and then we were told there was no more ice cream. But to try to foist off the soupy dregs of a ice cream carton was beyond the pale. A professional kitchen would not allow it to be served in the first place.

“Exceptionally fresh ~ a culinary gem!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Having attended two of Chef Ash's cooking demonstrations, and have also enjoyed dinner at Lemon, as well, this restaurant is superb. The presentation of exceptional cuisine at the cooking class the other evening once again was perfectly delicious. It is evident his high standards translate into fresh, unique, flavorful quality in all recipes Chef Ash prepares. Always consistent, always delicious. Definitely try the date and caramel dessert! Our community is fortunate to have such a culinary gem! Thank you!
