Lyons English Grille
Fantastic- makes you feelFantastic- makes you feel like home. Reasonable prices and great old world ambiance. Food reaaly good too!!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOld World Charm and ServiceWe loved Lyons. We had reservations and were seated immediately when we arrived. Staff was awesome. They looked like they were enjoying being there and serving us. Very nice live music - piano and vocals were great and not too loud so we were still able to talk and enjoy dinner. Excellent menu with items you don't see every day. Food was very good. My fish was okay (I wouldn't order it again), but my husband's prime rib was one of best he has ever had. We will definitely go again the next time we are in Palm Springs.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA fine old gem of a restaurant.A fine old gem of a restaurant. We enjoyed every minute of our meal. We both had the prime rib, it was tender and very flavorful. We also enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms and garlic toast for starters. And the navy bean soup that came with the meal was fresh and homemade tasting.
The decor is a bit old and dated, but that in itself is charming in a way. My only quibble would be, while the restaurant emphisising it's "English-ness" there are only a couple of English foods on the menu. Where's the bangers and mash? Shepard's Pie? And why does an English restaurant have italian food? Funny thing, I bet their chicken piccata is pretty good, but it just seems a bit strange to see it on the menu.
Bottomline, I would definately go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
