Chef Ash and his staff provided a marvelous birthday luncheon for my sister’s 75th birthday. Alex, his maître d, was exceptional. Alex made sure that the tables were set up properly, ensured that all our guests were comfortable and even took time to play with two young children while their parents ate their food. Alex did all of this with good nature and a smile.

As for the food: delicious doesn’t adequately describe the luncheon. The rice balls are not to be missed! They are crispy on the outside and soft and deliciously gooey on the inside. The moussaka was absolutely mouth-watering. We had a choice of tilapia, lamb stew tagine, chicken with artichoke, and gnocchi. Each dish was enjoyed by everyone. We even had one vegan show up at the last minute. No problem. They quickly put together a vegan dish with tabouli, sautéed mushrooms broccoli and cauliflower. They also provided chicken fingers and pasta for the two children.

For dessert (even though we we thoroughly full) they plated a strawberry with whipped cream, the most delicious baklava, and a slice of the birthday cake.

Not only was the food excellent, but the presentation of the food was done tastefully and well. I will definitely come back to this restaurant again.

The food was excellent, good portion sizes, and excellent service. The owner took the time to welcome us give us a little history on the restaurant.

Would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.

One caution, the jug handles are bit challenging when trying to lick as the the restaurant

We have always loved visiting Lemon for dinner l, the food is excellent and the owner/staff make you feel so welcomed and like family! We decided to cater our daughters Dedication, and the food was excellent! All of our guests commented on how delicious everything was and wanted to know where the food was from! Thank you to Ash and to Lemon for making it so special for our little girl!! ❤️

Had a fabulous time at Chef Ash’s cooking class. The lamb ragù was amazing and the mango panna cotta was truly delicious! I never liked lamb or mango but you changed my mind! a few lucky students are chosen to participate and help demonstrate the cooking techniques. The helpful hints from Chef are the bomb! Can’t wait for the next class but will definitely be back to try a new lamb dish.
