We went with another couple to Lemon and we loved it. The service was warm and friendly, the atmoshphere was wonderful and the food was great. Even though we thought we would share- we ordered salads, rice balls, individual dinners and even individual desserts. We went home happy and very full!

I like the atmosphere of this restaurant. They make the most of the space and the noise level is not too loud even when crowded. The service is excellent. They are very attentive and interested in your feedback and are eager to make sure that you have an excellent dining experience. The humus was as good as the other reviews... More

I didn't make a reservation because they required a credit card though open table and although I knew I would not cancel, I'm not comfortable leaving my credit card number out there. We were seated rather quickly, but it was a table in the entryway. Still, the service was attentive, but it was annoying to be next to the hostess,... More

Very nice presentation of a wide range of Mediterranean cuisine. The tables are a bit crowded together for a higher end restaurant, but not terribly so. From stuffed grape leaves to lamb, pastas, and seafood; there is something to enjoy for everybody here. The owner is frequently walking around stopping to ask how things are going. Considering the restaurant is... More

Whenever my husband and I can't decide what we want to eat we run over to Lemon. The food there is always amazing. My favorite appetizer is the poached pear. OMG! Anytime there is Gnocchi as a special (not the one listed on the menu), order it. I'm not saying the Gnocchi on the menu is not good, it is,... More

Mediterranean, BYOB: First time eating here, friends eating with us strongly suggested this place for our anniversary. So I called well in advance for reservations and was cheerfully greeted by Alexis. As we often try to do, we asked the waiter to select our dinner for the evening, they know whats best that night from the kitchen and often times... More

This is my second time visiting the lemon restaurant and I cannot tell you how excited my taste buds get at the thought of dining there. Besides having the best hummus I had ever eaten, their appetizers and desserts are unique and original. Chef Ash has the wonderful ability to mix spices and flavors in a way that is distinct...

A few friends and I had dinner at Lemon on a weeknight. The menu and the atmosphere were great. I had the grilled chicken with roasted potatoes, fennel and olives and my friend had the Black Angus Steak. The baklava was one of the better ones that I had in a while. The service was excellent and we never felt... More

Found them on Yelp and took my family there tonight. We were blown away by how good the food is! It's right up there with the top restaurants in Philly, NYC and San Diego. My dad summed it up perfectly when he said, he'll remember the flavors, and he used the word "memorable". The flavors popped in everything we ate... More
