We had an very tasty meal and excellent service.....the only issues in our group of 8 were that it was a little pricey since everything was ala carte and because of the poor divide between restaurants ...the curry smell from next door carried over to our table area ..but we all agreed we would likely go back!

We've eaten here a few times but never on a Friday night. I could have done without the belly dancer but everything else was great!

A Dining Evening Out
Found "Lemon" since its location was 1/2 way between friends home and ours. Walked in at 7 p.m. on Saturday and restuarant was relatively empty. By 7:30-7:45, not a table could be found. This is a restaurant that wants you to enjoy your evening and does not rush your dinner. They gave us time to visit over our BYO wine....and then took our orders. We all enjoyed the appetizers (quinoa salad, farro salad, rice balls), along with the warmed pita and hummus. Our entree's arrived in a timely (but not rushed) manner....and we were all happy with our choices (tagine, paella, salmon, salad). Dessert intrigued us (warm caramel dates, flourless chocolate cake, almond cake). After 2 1/2 hours, we left sated and happy.

a good find, thanks to Open Table
Restaurant could use a bit of updating, but the menu varied and interesting. Everyone in our party of five thought the food was quite good. We initially felt we were being rushed out, but the servers slowed down a bit and we were able to enjoy a leisurely dinner.

This was my husband and my first trip to Lemon. The food and service were outstanding. Chef Ash came out and introduced himself to us. We ended up leaving a deposit for an upcoming cooking class. Everything was fresh, delicious, and perfectly seasoned. Fantastic!!! Outstanding!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

Terrific local restaurant
Both my husband and I were delightfully surprised by this local Mediterranean restaurant. The food was authentic, fresh and beautifully plated. To start we had an unusual appetizer special: stuffed grilled peach with crab and gorgonzola cheese. It was outstanding. I enjoyed the chicken and lamb Kofta with porcini mushrooms and Israeli couscous and Paul had the Australian Rack of Lamb with a cherry reduction sauce. Baklava for dessert was yummy. Our waitress, Melissa was terrific and so sweet. The Chef came over to chat a bit and told us of his monthly Sunday night cooking classes consisting of 6 courses costing only $45. We are definitely interested in that. They also have entertainment on Friday nights. This was a BYBO. I highly recommend.

Food was great but pricy for strip mall restaurant. Service good if slow and prices on specials quite high and not explained when presented. Would try again but be sure of prices before ordering.

Taste of the Mediterranean
The food here is a great way to experience the many tastes of the Mediterranean. The regular items on the menu are great but the specials can be an added treat. Everything is very fresh and delicious, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Also has a great lunch buffet.

Our first time there. We wanted to find a new place. Menu lives up to the name of the restaurant. Several lamb dishes, fresh seafood including octopus. The owner, Ash, very attentive and personable. Came over, introduced himself and gave input on several dishes. Bottom line, we had a great time and will go bachk

Something for everyone
With such a varied menu, it wasn't hard to find something to suit everyone's taste. The quality of the food was very good. The portions were not very large, but they were appropriate....nobody left hungry, but there were no "doggy bags" with leftovers either.
I really enjoyed the homemade gnocchi, and although the paella was quite different from what my husband expected (not prepared as is typical in a Spanish restaurant), he thoroughly enjoyed it. Our friends also enjoyed the rack of lamb and the lamb tagine. The ambiance is nice and we love that it's BYOB. The wait staff is extremely attentive, and Ash, the owner, is warm and friendly. We would definitely go again.

Great Experience First Time
I recommend making a reservation. It was quite simple using Open Table. Great food!!! Good for vegetarians!!! Attentive waitstaff. BYOB. Manager readily available. Warm and inviting host. Great for a celebration or romantic night out. Easily spotted location. First time guests and we will definitely be returning.
