                                            We sat on the beautiful patio at Lon’s. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. My husband had steak and he said it was excellent. I had the fish special, Branzino with a delicious carrot purée. It was my husband’s birthday and he received a birthday card signed by the staff which was a nice touch. Everyone who served us made the evening feel very special.

                                            Our experience was excellent! Margaritas were the best an of us has had. With one round of drinks, lunch food, no appetisers about $40 per person. We found it expensive, but lovely experience for a special occasion.

                                            Our waitress did not know I did not like my salad dressing. Another staff got that corrected. She also could not answer questions about entree. My husbands salad was overseasoned. Food was fine but not as good as last time.

                                            Exceptional food in a beautiful patio setting. Acknowledgment of our Wedding Anniversary was a special touch. Only slight negative is the lack of self parking as a choice for those who do not require valet parking.

                                            They were very accommodating, we had wanted to be on the patio, but it was a little too warm for us. We were happily moved indoors & had a wonderful dinner! (PS: the churros dessert was fabulous)

                                            As always, excellent food and service. Unlike a number of highend restaurants, you can actually carry on a conversation without having to yell.

                                            Service was great. Food was basically good. Duck entree was not great. Meat was tough and carrots were not roasted. Actually barely cooked.

                                            This was our first time dining at the restaurant. It has been a challenge getting a reservation whenever we are in town. I’m so glad it worked out this time. The patio is stunning, matched by the food which is outstanding as is the service. We had dinner and then moved to other patio for a drink and to watch the lunar eclipse. We will definitely return.

                                            Sadly the celebration dinner was one with poor service, twice the hostess had to herself get up and serve guests Champagne. I expected attentive service. Also there was no warm welcome for the six of us, seemed chaotic at the front desk when we arrived. All in all not the first class experience I had hoped for. I would not recommend Lon's at this time.

                                            I have been a server for about 8 years. There is absolutely no reason to be rude to a busser like my server was especially in front of guests. It’s a terrible look. I don’t care what the situation is. Server said he’d get us a new napkin. Excellent. The food came out shortly after and the server goes “oh he never brought that to you” and rolls his eyes. Yelling a few tables over as the busser is clearing another table “looking for this?” and motioning for him to pick up a water pitcher he set on the fountain as he was clearing plates for us just minutes ago. “Can you clear the plates like I asked you to before?” His tone of voice and the looks he was giving the poor kid really didn’t sit well with me. I understand the kid is tipped out to do his job but he was by no means being lazy. Is it that much of an inconvenience for him to clear a couple plates on his way to the back and grab a napkin to drop at the table? If he felt the need to address an issue with the kid he should’ve done it outside of the dining area. My filet was over cooked but outside of that the food was excellent and the ambiance is top notch. The hostility in the dining area was just completely unnecessary regardless of the mistakes the busser was making. Don’t remember the guys name but if I was to come back I would describe him and ask not to be sat in his section.

                                            An incredible experience. Great ambiance, sitting outside by candlelight in perfect weather. Great service, great wine, good food. I wouldn’t change a thing. We spent plenty of money, but it was a special occasion and this is one of the best places in the Phoenix area to splurge. Can’t wait to go back.

                                            Setting was very pleasant. Food and service was superb. Live music was a bit too loud making conversation a bit frustrating.

                                            By far my favorite restaurant in Arizona and because of so we keep returning. The outdoor patio is to die for! The live music makes the experience that much more special. To start you get a delicious bread platter. Drinks are always yummy. The entrees were unbelievable. On top of that they often switch up their menu to keep you coming back to try new and exciting things!

                                            Lons at Hermosa Inn is the most wonderful restaurant--whether you are seated on the gorgeous patio or indoors in the lovely dining room. The menu, service, ambiance -- all divine! I had let them know we were celebrating a friend's birthday--they had a card on the table signed by staff. The chocolate cake with a candle for dessert. Our service was impeccable. The Lons Louie (crab and shrimp) was to die for!!! We love Lons and always go there for special occasions or just when we feel like being in a little slice of ahhh.
