    The atmosphere was quaint and comfortable. The servers were attentive and fun. The food was the most reasonably priced we’ve had in a while and was quite tasty. There weren’t a bunch of bells and whistles with our dinner burgers and we appreciated that. The banana pudding was a little more lavish and REALLY delicious! We will be back for the burger and fries.

    Been here a lot and usually recommend it but this time was a total failure. I should have known because there were a lot of open reservations. Translation: not busy at all. My date had never been and told me they'll never go there again. Salad was wilted and burned with no dressing and shrimp so salty you could barely eat them. The hot dog, and French fries had sat so long under the food warmer that the bowls were untouchable and the fixings on the hot dog had a film. Not to mention the $14 drinks were inconsistent. For $140 for 2 people it was a rip off. Mgmt gave us a free dessert that was basically stale and we couldn't finish it. Server was nice but stretched thin to the point the hostess was running food. Disappointing to say the least.

    I ate lunch here with a former co-worker on a Thursday afternoon. I had the salmon with a side of cauliflower. The food was excellent. But my goodness was it loud. I didn’t see many people having wine or beer, so this cacophony came from sober people having lunch. The space is relatively tight, which may explain the noise. I would recommend the restaurant due to the food and service, but I would not go here for a romantic meal or a serious business lunch. It is simply too loud to easily communicate.

    The food is average and way overpriced. One lobster roll is $39!!!! And it wasn’t even delicious. Cole slaw with it was tasteless and mostly the core of the cabbage. Drinks were ok.

    WHen you want something that takes a step back from BB Butcher, but still gives you the same great quality and service, head across teh street. The food is a bit more casual as if the atmosphere, but it's still some of the best you'll find in Houston. It's not about if I'll be back, it's about how soon I can get back.

    Valet parking available where attendant was very helpful and pleasant. Although overall experience was comfortable and great atmosphere for my BFF and me, we weren’t greeted upon entry, but once we made our presence known an apology was exchanged by hostess who then seated us according to our reservation preference. Waiter was very attentive, crab beignets were off the chart flavorful and cooked to perfection with accompanying remoulade sauce made it superb. Fish had the perfect crunch but little flavor, it tasted much better with the sauce provided. Definitely will be going back.

    Food and service in general is great. However, the person at the front receiving the guests that seems to be the manager has been unpolite to someone in the group each time we've been to BB Lemon. She ruins the experience.

    Atmosphere and food are great, it's just pricey. I ordered the lobster roll which was $39 dollors; however, when it arrived it was really small. For $39, I expected it to be larger than it was. The Watermelon Mule was really good, great summertime drink.

    This was my 3rd time there. It was for a special celebration. The lower stars are because our server, Jason, was not very friendly and didn’t seem to care about our celebration. The last time I went the server was much more personable and we had fun. Good and patio is the best.

    Come for the vibes, not the brunch. The restaurant itself was super cute, and the Dj was great! Our food was underwhelming, with the exception of the starters! We should’ve just stuck w/ those! The chicken lollipops and the blue crab beignets were definitely the stars! The brunch entrees need some help-we we’re not impressed. Between that and the low quality mimosas-i say they should revamp their brunch options & try again. BUT I’m a firm believer in 2nd chances-so we will be back for lunch.

    The food was great and the ambiance was amazing as well, but service was lacking, we wanted to go out to celebrate my birthday and thought this was the place to go since it was suggested by family. I never got a water until desserts came out and never got our table touched for any kind of refills or to see how our food came out. However the manager was quick to help improve our night by bringing out two desserts and making sure we have everything else we needed. I love the effort put forth by management but this was a special night for my friends and I that ended up being very stressful. Overall I was very unimpressed by the service I received.

    Food was overall good. Service was not. We were not checked on or glasses refilled after the entrees came. We were wanting to order dessert but nobody came by to see if we wanted anything else. We waited 20 minutes until we were able to flag down the hostess and ask for the check. Next time we will just go across the street to B&B Butcher where we know we will get excellent service.
