Have eaten at Lemon many times and it is always fantastic. The quality of the food as well as the high level put into the prep make it a perfect meal every time we have visited. Very quaint and comfortable decor and the service nice and low key but very attentive. For the level of cuisine served the prices are... More

Great meal, services and a lemon ducrois (sp) dessert to die for. Small chalkboard resto with great atmosphere and people, squeezed us in on Friday with no reservation. Glad they did. Shared the shrimp and Brussels sprout appies, which were both out of this world. 10oz New Yorker for me and Pasta with parm, olive and bacon. All just about... More

A delightful, small, gem on Main Street. The menu is limited, a tiny kitchen, but always imaginative and tasty. The service is friendly and good.

Small and intimate. Dress up or dress down, doesn't matter... just come ready to enjoy your meal. Chalkboard menu featuring chef-inspired dishes highlighted with local herbs and vegs. We split a delightful crisp salad for apps, followed up with an outstanding pasta special and a wonderful grilled halibut. Shared some very nice wine... all in all a fantastic and delightful...

This is a small family owned restaurant on Main Street that what they lack in size they make up with Taste. They never disappoints. The fish dinner I had was amazing. My husbands steak was and I quote him "bloody amazing"! I have visited a few times now and I keep telling my friends. It's great! It's romantic, quaint and... More

For a truly excellent 'home-cooked' dinner at a really nice local restaurant, one cannot beat Lemon Bistro. It has been around for quite some time, is often very busy, and has consistently good reviews. No surprise, it deserves its accolades. Despite a slightly cramped and basic interior, the food makes up for it one hundredfold. This time we had the... More

I think it's high time I write about this place, having been there more than a handful of times. It's an atmospheric heritage home with smaller tables seating 2-6 people, so make sure to call ahead, if you're lucky you can get a table near the kitchen to observe the magic. The restaurant uses local ingredients, the owner even grows... More

We enjoyed a home cooked meal (beef shank and a pasta dish) with excellent desserts and an Ontario cabernet sauvignon. Friendly service. Rather dark little place, but OK.
