Great martinis – I'll be brief: great location, *great* martinis, beautiful people. The upstairs lounge can get hot (teperature-wise) but is otherwise chill. Came here many times for drinks, but only once for dinner, and the food was disappointing.
fantastico... – This place is one of the best restaurants I've been to in NY after living here for 6+ years. The food is consistently extremely good - one meal I had here was probably the best I've had in New York. Great wine selection, fun atmosphere, and a little bit (just a little) on the trendy side without having that "you are privileged to even be allowed in" attitude. To top it all off, one of the most inexpensive and best value-for-your-money places in NY, too. A great, great place - if you haven't been you are missing out on a great evening.
Great for Drinks or Dinner – This place has good inexpensive food and interesting drinks. They are also not snobby at all, and have fun music.
not a Lemon – Quiet at lunch- good lunch value- gets noisy and hoping for dinner mixed crowd on the young side.
A great place for a group – I took fourteen of my friends to The Lemon for my birthday. This is a great spot for a group. The prices are good. The menu is quite varied, including the drinks. The service is superb. Though it is quite loud, it worked for the group scene.
Great – We were a group of 14 celebrating a birthday and we were treated wonderfully! Our reservations for both dinner and drinks in the upstairs lounge were confirmed, the staff was extremely nice and attentive, the food was very good and not overly priced and the atmosphere was perfect. Everyone in the party remarked on what a great place The Lemon is!
Not exciting, but nice. – Deciding on where to eat, this was the first place we walked past and just went inside. Weird layout with the giftshop or magazine stand inside it, but we were seated promptly, no reservation. Food from what I could remember was good. Tiny, 2 person booths upstairs around the edge looking down over the main eating area, but there was a private party there so good people watching while eating. Kinda romantic, kinda casual, nice for a date or after-work drink or dinner.
Lots of Zing – Hmm.. I dunno why people badmouth this place. I been there plenty of times... never had a bad experience. AT ALL! We walk in... get a nice table and eat and drink the night away. Service is good... our glasses and bottles never seemed to go empty. The food is good.. and its reasonably priced (with the exception of that one time when our party of 10 spent over 1000 dollars... hahaha) but i like... try it!
Cancelled – I booked a small group here for a holiday get-together, and called to confirm it 3 days before. Seemed like a cool place. The day before my event, they called to cancel us because they had gotten a better offer. The hosts who I spoke to showed little remorse, and left me to scramble on my own.
Decent bar scene – Definitely more of a place to go get a table and sit down for a bite and drink.
The bar area is far too small and far too crowded.
The upstairs area is OK, nothing great, too small.
At best, a place to go and get a quick drink.
