Lemon Tree in Dobbs Ferry

Has anyone tried it yet? Has a great look from the sidewalk.

  1. I went for lunch. The decor is a bit nicer than your typical pan-Asian, and the glowing blue bar creates a nice look from the sidewalk. The service was attentive. The vegetarian Hot and Sour soup was solid. The main course -- I got a Thai red curry dish -- was fair to good. The sauce was much less liquidy than I'm used to; maybe that was an intentional choice by the chef? The lunch menu prices are reasonable, so it might be a new mainstay in Dobbs Ferry for those that work in the area.

      Could it be related to the Lemon Tree in Bronxville? I noticed that just opened too because they slid a menu under my door.

    2. I was there today for lunch and wasn't at all impressed. We were the only ones in there for over an hour and the service was awful.

        Do they have take decent soups or something like that? Our office can be so FRIGGIN COLD sometimes, that all I want is to go somewhere, sit for an hour and order soup. Otherwise I bring my own TJs lunch or something.

      2. Went there last evening. The service was attentive, and the food was excellent! The BEST pineapple fried rice! Delicious dim sum. Will definitely go back when they get their liquor license (supposedly next month). In the meantime, I'll have to settle for home delivery (not a bad thing!)...

        1. Although there are other asian and Pac Rim food options in the area, LemonTree leaves the others in the dust. The names sound the same, but the chef is clearly superior. Soup choices, including the House Seafood and Thai Curry Seafood soup are delicious....and the servings are large. The special whole whitefish in chili sauce was so tasty that we ate it, although we were full from the soup. We returned for lunch and were not disappointed...Thai Curry Udon soup was huge and was the Yaki Udon Noodle dish. The decor is simple and elegant, staff is eager to please. Unfortunately, Dobbs is dragging out their long anticipated liquor license....but I would recommend that people go for the food in the meantime so we don't lose this place.

          1. I had lunch there over the weekend. I thought the veggie hot and sour soup was quite good and the veggie gyoza were OK. I tasted my friend's shumai and california roll (both eh) but will definitely go back and check out some of the other options. Service was pleasant and efficient, and prices seemed fair.
