Terrific food. Good value. Very popular. The wait was over two hours the first night we tried to go. VERY loud music. Noise level is the only thing keeping me from giving this a solid ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ star rating.

Loved it, the food is fantastic! but they have the music and DJ so loud that it's almost impossible to have a conversation. I'm not really sure if they think the demographic likes this (AKA us young people) but it's not a club, it's a restaurant and I wish I could've heard my waitress without her having to yell.

This was my third time to Green Lemon and it didn't disappoint! I was catching up with a friend I hadn't seen in over a year. Our server was great (I can't remember her name but she had very short blonde hair and tattoos). We enjoyed a leisurely lunch and ended up hanging around with another round of drinks (the spicy margarita is where it's at!). We never felt rushed. The street tacos are amazing! Such a great way to try lots of different flavors. The bowls are great too! I love all the Ciccio restaurants and just wish there was a Green Lemon in St. Pete.

Our server (totally forget but it may have been McKenzie??) was so welcoming and very knowledgeable. I go here for the happy hours deals because they really are unbeatable. I just moved to Tampa and this is already my favorite restaurant not only for the food, but for the drinks and the ambiance. I strongly recommend this place to everyone!!! Although I wouldn't quite recommend it for kids. Definitely a young adult, after work hot spot. I love it!

All 7 ladies loved their food. The wait staff was excellent. It was a little noisy when we first sat down but got better. We were very close to a large, noisy group and the live music. The music was good and after the noisy table left it was easier to talk.
A few of us have talked about returning for lunch during the week.

We were at a dessert reception for the Wallenberg event at Glazer's down the road -and this -in reverse order- was dinner after. Really tasty sizzling chicken and steak fajitas and delicious table side guacamole made for a very enjoyable meal. It was a jam packed Wednesday night- millenial crowd mostly- but we boomers truly enjoyed the ambiance with gorgeous wall murals, lively music and very friendly wait staff. Great on street location, easy parking and so much more.

The food and atmosphere were both really great. The only problem we had was the service. This started from the moment we walked in, the greeter was very rude and ignored us and started talking to the people who walked in behind us. Even our server was very rude and never even brought us napkins or silverware.
