This is a great restaurant! Chef Ash is an artist and will make changes and substitutions for you - which is so refreshing in a restaurant! Food is great - try the squash soup if in season!

The food was amazing. Our waiter Frank was terrific. He took the time to explain the specials, gave his recommendations, which were perfect, and with Andrew and Samantha (I think that was her name, I am sorry if I got it wrong) they did an excellent job. We found you by accident but we will definitely be back!

Food was so delicious and the service was probably the best I've ever experienced. No one skipped a beat and super attentive making sure everything was just right...lots of different flavors that were new to my palate and all went together perfectly.

I am a regular at the lunch buffet as most of my favorites are available at the buffet. The service is excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. Every friend I bring is as impressed with the food and atmosphere as I am. Several people I introduced to the Lemon have become regulars as well. A true gem in Freehold!

We've been here several times and it is usually great. This time was off. lamb chops were overcooked (but still tasty). The rest of our meal was good. Ordered coffee and dessert. Coffee came out cold. Then they forgot about dessert and brought the check (we were charged for dessert). After a delay, they of course brought the dessert out... More

Time after time we visit Lemon, we are never disappointed. Not this time either. From appetizers to entrees to specials...if you like Mediterranean food you will love Lemon. Chef Ash always keeps quality high, presentation positive and the flavors delicious. From a pear Gorgonzola appetizer to a Bronzino plate it is all yummy. Plus the wait staff cant do enough... More

Our first time at Lemon, and we loved it. The food selection was great. The Octopus appetizer was the best I've had, and the Paella had a tasty Mediterranean twist to it. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient. We will definitely be back regularly.
