Lon's at The Hermosa
Patio 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 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 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 AMfood and service were veryfood and service were very good...nice location, great patio...5/19/2013 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 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 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 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.

Everyone loved their food- short ribs, the Cowboy BBQ- trout, crab salad, and all the desserts! The only bad thing was it was hot as heck out and the outdoor fireplace was right next to our table. Ahh, the things we suffer through for ambiance!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice evening! FoodReally nice evening! Food was very good - the beet salad was excellent. The beef short ribs were very tender.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Patio and Great ServiceEat at Lon's when you can eat outside. The patio with its fountain and flowers is beautiful.

We look forward to going there and enjoy every minute!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLon's is one of our favoriteLon's is one of our favorite places to dine. But, this time we were disappointed. We had made the reservation several days in advance, and asked for patio seating. When we arrived (7:45 reservation), we were told there was no patio seating available and they did not know when a table woukd be available. Our inside waiter was excellent, but we had been very much looking forward to patio dining.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversaryThis is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Try to get a table on the patio if possible.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLon's never fails to provideLon's never fails to provide excellent service, food and atmosphere.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food and service iveBest food and service ive had in a long time.

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.
The food and presentation was amazing.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience! AmazingAmazing experience! Amazing food! Amazing 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! The food is amazing, the employees are knowledgeable, polite and friendly. You won't be disappointed.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was nice, exceptEverything was nice, except that it took a long time for our food to come out and our side dish came out towards the end of the meal. We spent just shy of $500 for 4 people, so not sure it was worth the price. All in all it was a nice evening with another couple. We will have to think about returning, you are really paying for the view...food was good, but menu was a bit disappointing. It took everyone a long time to decide what to eat, mainly because of the choices. We are big time foodies, but the other couple were not and so they were unsure of the choices. Maybe add more dishes like quail or rabbit...it was OK.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful!This is my favorite restaurant in the entire Valley of the Sun! 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 AMOutstanding! Finally a placeOutstanding! Finally a place that understands that background music should be just that - in the background. It was nice to have nice live music that wasn't so loud that you had to shout over it. Brunch was amazing and the setting is beautiful.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAn enchanting desert oasisFabulous food in an enchanting desert setting. Awesome (but pricey), wine list with a nice selection of half-bottles and wines by the glass. Service is first rate. Don't miss the Sunday BBQ, a real value and delicious too!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Happy Birthday!This was a 1st time visit and more than exceded our expectations.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTSONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN TOWN, FOR DINNER AND LUNCH! My clients absolutely love the food and the wonderful outdoor dining.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad lunch twice while stayingHad lunch twice while staying at the Hermosa Inn where the restaurant is situated. Food and service was terrific. House made pastrami and the burgers were great. The Caesar and grilled artichokes are a great way to start your meal and the fries are house made as well and are delicious. The gardens in Spring are in full bloom and the patio is the place to be to have lunch.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were celebratingMy husband and I were celebrating our 52nd anniversary, and the experience was outstanding. We will return. Thank you.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIn spring, the setting onIn spring, the setting on the patio at Lon's is spectacular, with banks of gorgeous flowers, the fountain and a guitarist who provided just the right touch. For brunch we learned what a great chef can do with some old standbys, including huevos rancheros, which were creatively plated and delicious, with frybread, black beans and chorizo. For dessert, the chocolate torte included not only a dark chocolate brownie, mousse and ice cream, but also house-made caramel popcorn--crunchy and sweet--and some molecular gastronomy powder, something our server explained to us and which we thought was a great complement. I enjoyed discovering the flavor in the powder. We will be coming back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Jeremy uses locally grownChef Jeremy uses locally grown products to keep the menu seasonal. The presentation of each savory dish is artwork. The service is friendly and attentive. Highly suggest patio dining, and strolling through the art and cactus gardens.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent setting! Loved havingExcellent setting! Loved having live music & still understand people at my table. Server was attentive, knowledgeable & efficient. Our food was not the quality expected from a place this nice. Some at our table had halibut which was dry & not imaginative. The steak was very good3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom Portland to Paradise ValleyAs a Portland foodie, I have some pretty high expectation about dining experiences and food, Lons definately meets them all.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the USA!We have been to Lon's multiple times over the years. It is one of the restaurants we always go to when we are in Scottsdale. It is simply an awesome place to eat! Ambiance is outstanding, view of the mountains and the moon rising, a geat smooth jazz band, hickory smoke pots going, awesome food! Probably one of the best places I have eaten in the entire country!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat at Lon's every timeWe eat at Lon's every time we are in Phoenix and are never disappointed. One of best outdoor dining spots in town with food to match.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating a birthdayWe were celebrating a birthday dinner with a party of six. Outdoor patio seating was perfect, as the weather this time of year makes the ambiance so nice. The musicians were subtle and not intrusive, but added a welcome element to our dining experience. Our wait staff was excellent and attentive. I would recommend Lon's for anyone looking for a unique and scenic patio dining experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a resturant, an experience!Outstanding!!! This is a must experience place. It does not fit into the category of resturaunt, it is above that, it is an experience. From the moment you walk through the gate to the minute you leave the parking lot, it is amazing. The friends that take care of you (you can't call them staff, they are above that) know the menu, can predict what goes well with YOUR order and open to filling your special requests.This is an over the top experience and will be back soon!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat except ...Everything was great except the salad was put on top of a drizzle of dressing so it had no flavor at all.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMlocal and inhouse grown ingredientsFirst time, for my wife and I visiting the restaurant - from arrival anttiveness, sommelier knowledge, server and assitsnce, the Chefs visiting our table between courses, made our experience so special. Highlights of the night for us the quality of the food, food menru approached, wine paring, and servers food knowledge. Lon's Restaurant - a very special restaurant.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThere could not be a moreThere could not be a more beautiful setting for outdoor dining.
