BrunchAppreciated our overall experience. Food and service were good.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was delicious andOur dinner was delicious and we appreciated the special attention we received for our anniversary.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a celebrationTook the family to celebrate youngest daughter graduation from college (and getting a job!!!!) We have been there before but not for nearly 4 years (too long). Actually gave daughter her choice and this was it. Great choice by her. we had a great time and our waiter was so personable.
Has nothing to do with the food, but if you don't take the time to look at the photos and artwork by Lon himself you are truly missing out...
This place is a gem.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMbeautiful settingThe restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The home was converted leaving the sense that you are eating in an elegant but cozy home dining room.
My friend and I shared a dessert for her birthday and the chocolate mousse with popcorn ice cream was out of this world.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationWe celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary with a great dinner at Lon's. It was the ideal place for a special occasion dinner like this. We hope to return again for a special occasion.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatThis is in my book one of the best places to have a nive dinner.. The service and food is beyond excellent.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeHad lunch for my Birthday with a friend. We both thought it was excellent in every way.
I have already recommended Lon's to others.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite RestaurantAlways fantastic food and great service at Lon's, with a beautiful and unique setting at the Hermosa Inn. Lon's has been our favorite restaurant in Phoenix for many years.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Setting!The staff were polite, friendly and attentive. The exquisite southwest ambiance at Lon's is worth the trip! Great dining experience!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Lon's manyWe have been to Lon's many times and brought some Swiss friends this time, The setting was lovely, as usual. The food was sub-par and the service a bit slow. We were disappointed in the food, but never the setting.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood GemWe are so glad we ate here. Tucked in the midst of an upmarket residential area, but what a lovely place. Didn't appear to be too many sleeping guests staying, and we saw much of the grounds in the dark, but we liked the restaurant very much. We both had the roast pork and it was delicious, accompanied by roasted vegetables that tasted absolutely wonderful. Delightful, friendly waiter and also convenient valet parking. (seems to be a lot of that in Arizona). It was a bit too hot to eat outside, at least for us, but there were plenty of people sitting at the outdoor tables enjoying dinner by candlelight. Maybe next time. Very Nice place. Go, as you will enjoy yourself.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOutstanding music. The saxaphone player was awesome!
Increddible setting and ambiance.
The nicest servers.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen coming for years andBeen coming for years and as always a favorite. The outdoor dining is beautiful.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Anniversary DinnerMy wife and I recently went to Lon's for our 1 year anniversary. Right off the bat the staff there treats you like you are the most important customer there. We had made a reservation online, and we called later to see if we could sit on the patio, but they had already put us outside because we had told them it was our anniversary. The meal itself was incredible, the food was so fresh and had amazing flavor. The staff at Lon's put some other nice personal touches to make our evening special, for example a signed card from the staff, and on our dessert the chef wrote Happy Anniversary with the chocolate syrup. Overall our experience was wonderful, and we would recommend Lon's to anyone looking for a special place to eat.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat Ambiance!The outdoor seating at Lons provides a gracious, beautiful environment for dinner. The seating is comfortable, and the view is great. The food, however, is just okay. It's good, but it's not spectacular.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant weekThe menu choices were outstanding. Food there is always exceptional. The outdoor diving is lovely but it was I dark we couldn't see our food.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeAwesome place, service, food, and ambience all 5 stars...5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for TwoAlthough the restaurant could certainly accomodate larger groups, my husband and I love to go there for a wonderful dinner together. We always sit outside and have a wonderful combo playing fabulous smooth jazz. They had a great menu to choose from, everything was prepared and presented beautifully.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Out of Town GuestsWe stopped at Lon's on the way home from the airport in the morning. We wanted to stop for breakfast and sit outside. Lon's was perfect. We had a lovely breakfast (we tried several different dishes) and absolutely wonderful service. We plan to go back for a different meal and loved the hide-away feel of the grounds yet so central to Scottsdale.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPatio dining at its finestThe food and service is only surpassed by the ambiance. If you dine here, try to go on a warm (90 degree) evening and ask to be seated on the patio. It is one of the best in Phoenix/Scottsdale. The service is outstanding, it operates like a well oiled machine even with a full load. This is definitely not a place to take small children.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFor out of towners...This is a beautiful place to bring out of town guest for a old southwest ranch feel.
Weather permitting, outside is simply charming..5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service were veryfood and service were very good...nice location, great patio...5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe evening was perfect. WeThe evening was perfect. We were able to sit with our friends on the patio, and the live music was pleasant without interfering with conversation. Three of us ordered the gazpacho, which was perfect in taste and size. All the entrees were delicious, especially the salmon. The waiter was spot on in being attentive and not overly so. He was especially helpful in advising the chef of my food allergy. We would recommend this restaurant to any of our friends.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe PatioBeautiful and lush, it could use mister system to boost the cooling on warm nights. Chelsa's has a similar patio with misters that are very obscure and subtle while keeping a cooler temp. Music was very nice not to loud or distracting. Loved the cowboy flavor and oldies.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Dining ExperienceI cannot say enough about this place. If you have not gone, LONs must be a the top of your list. Have dinner on the patio. It is very, very nice and of course make reservations in advance. The food was outstanding. My partner preferred the chicken, which was moist and juicy. The staff was very attentive. If dinner for two, request a table by the fountain.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is honestly great.This place is honestly great. I just had to give 3 stars on service because it states on your confirmation email regarding the reservation that if you want patio seating to call them directly, so I did.
However when we arrived they said there was a wait because the Patio technically cannot be reserved. This was a special occasion and we I wanted it to be special so I was just disappointed. That information should have been given to me over the phone when I asked.
Other than that, food was great, waiter was great and you cannot beat the amazing romantic patio.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticThis was our first time to go to Lon's. The staff, especially Andrew, were fantastic and the ambiance was perfect!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMASU Graduation Celebration DinnerWe have had a few celebrations at Lon's over the years. This time was for our son's graduation from Arizona State University. Our party of seven thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with the soothing guitar player in the background and twinkle lights in the trees. The food was excellent as always. We had the delicious Ahi over the Hot Salt Rock and Calamari with the Halibut and Braised Short Ribs which was very tender. The wine list was extensive as we enjoyed the Montelena Cabernet and Rombauer Chardonnay. I would highly recommend going to Lon's for any occasion.
Dean5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great findA neighbor told us to try Lon's and was that ever a great referral. From the valet to the maî·tre d' to our server to the food to the live entertainment the evening just got better and better. This is a very well run organization. Top notch in every way. We can't wait to return!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the entire Phx areaThe service was only exceeded by the most delicious food we have experienced since we moved here 8 years ago. The wine steward went beyond the call of duty and showed us choices when we return. And we will return in the next couple of weeks!
It was our wedding ann. and our expectations we were met and exceeded in all areas. We are recommending this to all our friends.

Excellent service4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a fantastic dining experience!What a fantastic dining experience! Our group of 6 first enjoyed happy hour outside on the beautifully landscaped patio. Gorgeous flowers, plants and mature trees everywhere, with a casual but elegant, old Phoenix feel. Our server was fun, helpful and attentive. Dinner (also on the patio) was just as memorable. The menu was varied, but not overwhelming, and the wine selection was outstanding. Our server recommended the truffle goat cheese macaroni side dish, which was hands down the group favorite, with the porcini mushroom soup a close second. The bone-in rib eye steak entree was a hit with everyone. We are looking forward to returning here often. Lon's is a real gem in the desert.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ambiance, wonderfulWonderful ambiance, wonderful service.

We sat outdoor and really enjoyed the weather and the band performance. Food was great. For appetizer, I particularly liked the Foie Gras. For entree, the Scottish Samlon was crispy outside and juicy inside. Absolutely delightful. The restaurant has a bunch of half-bottle wine choices. Perfect for small groups. Overall, it was a fantastic experience! I would highly recommend the restaurant to those who are looking for a special night to spend.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience everyA wonderful experience every time!

Outside dining overlooking Camelback Mountain is gorgeous, as are the grounds of the resort. The menu contains foods to tickle anyone's taste buds, the service is superb and there are some outside tables that are perfect for people to whom noise is an issue. We sat in the southwest corner of the patio and we could all hear one another perfectly. We had a very attentive but non-obtrusive waiter.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Patio....ExcellentBeautiful Patio....Excellent time to sit outside.....Food delicious.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
