Went there for the first time in a long time. The food was fabulous and the service was great. The Server was friendly and explained the menu items. The food was tasty and the ingredients were fresh. Definitely will be going there again.

We discovered this gem about three years ago. The chef buys his own ingredients and the menu changes. We had pork chops soaked in brine...outstanding. We have been here a half dozen times and never disappointed.

Been here a few times and the quality of the food and service is great. The pasta and desserts are homemade and super delicious.

I realize Lemon Bistro has been on Markham Main Street for some time, but hadn't visited before this past Saturday evening. What a pleasant surprise! While tiny & intimate you still manage to feel like your not too crowded by other diners and quite enjoy a nice dinner for two. Very limited menu as I believe it changes frequently -... More

Service is very slow. Needed to request certain items. Food menu is limited. Some dishes were tasty and others not so much. Had mussels with huge chunks of ginger and a very watery sauce.... not so good.

I have eaten here a few times...a small quaint bistro on Markham's Main Street...family owed and operated. Consistently excellent ...tasty imaginative food. Had a Thai flavoured stuffed eggplant appetizer that was amazing...juicy pork loin with shredded Apple . There is always a home made pasta and it's worth trying. The best creme caramel I've tasted. A small but interesting list... More

Wow, the food is exceptional !! Family owned with a quaint atmosphere. Everything is extremely fresh as they grow their own spices and some vegetables in the back of building. Their deserts are all created and made fresh in the basement as well. The meat and pasta were to die for !! Very nice family with a warm atmosphere and... More

It's nice to know that a small family restaurant is still the nucleus of a neighborhood. The owners are an interesting and passionate family. I was told to have the pork chop and It was the finest cut of meat since I can remember. Every bite was juicy and exploding with flavor. My boyfriend and I shared the chocolate cake... More

The food was tasty, but felt overpriced after experiencing a long wait to be served and terrible service. I would recommend avoiding this restaurant unless you have money to throw away.
