    Our Server Bryan/Brian, didn’t see his name tag but I remembered his name. I just went yesterday around 8pm to dine and he was absolutely amazing! The sweetest and most helpful gentleman I’ve ever met! Made sure everything was up to par and more! So definitely check out that restaurant and ask for him! You won’t regret it!

    Came to BB Lemon for Sunday brunch! We were seated right away! There was a DJ playing really good music but it wasn’t overbearing even though I wanted to dance! The food was great and mimosa carafes delicious! Star was our server and she helped prepare our drinks too! Great place!

    Made reservations prior to a concert at Minute-maid Stadium. The Steak Frites was excellent! Also very impressive service, and a beautifully decorated patio! Lots of families outside and they appear to have a place for the kids to play. Altogether lovely!

    Our waiter was very knowledgeable, but service was very slow on everything. Even having to ask repeatedly for water refills, let alone having any orders placed in a timely manner. I’m assuming this issue was due to lack of staff, but still disappointed.

    Sat on the patio, great waiter (Daniel) who balanced attentiveness and giving space perfectly. Great patio - even though warm and humid, the fans and cover made it pleasant. Wish the BB Lemon corporate owners supported increasing transit/Metro access to the Washington corridor so more people could easily enjoy all that is nearby.

    This return to BB Lemon was everything we anticipated and we anticipated a lot based on prior visits. The food far exceeds its descriptions. The offerings are familiar, but then they arrive and are anything but ordinary. Salmon BLT, Blue Crab beignets, Parmesan Bacon, even the Grilled Cheese with bacon and tomato and the Patty Melt are memorable. Service was impeccable.

    My first time there and I was impressed w the gorgeous cobb salad, my watermelon salad a bit different but refreshing. I had a nice beef patty over fries and it was actually done to my spcifications!!! Wines a bit high for lunch ,could have been another couple of less expensive choices. Considering it was in the middle of lunch at restarants week it was great service and we will be back for the regular menu!

    When the reservation was made on Open Table it wasn't clear that we were not sitting inside. When we arrived and found out and had to sit outside, it was just miserably hot and too late for us to find somewhere else to go.

    The food was good but the service could improve. I wanted to ask for black pepper and hot shot but my waiter didn’t come back to our table until I was almost done with my food. Maybe I should have asked any waiter or waitress. Also there was a parking lot nearby but only for valet service.

    This is the third time visiting BB Lemon. All visits were always disappointing. We have had great experience at the BB steakhouse across the way but this spot is just lacking. . Service on day of visit was friendly and efficient. But the food was poor. Son ordered a medium well bacon burger that came dry and very well done w the most burnt bacon possible. Burger doesn’t come w fries, that’s extra. Wife had onion soup that was good and a fair Cobb salad. The Lobster roll I would avoid at all cost. Small roll, lobster was not enough and the kitchen slapped a handful of Cole slaw on side. Mind you Cole slaw was not seasoned. Just dried cabbage on the plate. At a cost of $39 If I remember correctly. Mind you food trucks can give you a lobster roll that blows this one away for 10 bucks less! Wont go back again.

    Never been here before. Had a party of 9. Daniel our waiter was great. Food was fabulous. We ate off of the restaurant weeks menu but saw several things we’d like to come back for on the regular menu. Two annoying items. We talked to them several times over the last 2 or 3 weeks upping our reservation number as people decided to join us for my birthday but never once did they mention the restaurant was so small a large party would have to sit outside. It was fine because it wasn’t super hot last night but it would have been nice to have a heads up. Also when we got there because it was only 2 of us at first they refused to seat us even though the reservation was in my name and the table was obviously set up. So we had to stand in the way while wait staff and other patrons bumped around us. Really small space. Otherwise great experience.

    It was extremely busy on a Friday night, so the staff was working extremely hard which caused us to wait a little longer. The wonderful host was nice enough to take our drink and appetizer orders until our waitress was available. Everything came out quickly and was great! Everything we ordered was delicious from the appetizers, to the entrees and the desserts.
