I usually do room temp but this weekend I served a lemon tart warm and it was really great. Definitely not cold tho!

If the flavors are as tangy as lemon should be, your guests will get the fullest taste experience at room temperature.

Depends. Is it a lemon custard pie, or a lemon icebox pie? If the latter, cold; if the former, room temp.

Room temperature it is! Thanks everyone. And for the last piece of pie, I think I'll try it warm like Amanda did, just for fun.
