This was an incredibly disappointing experience. We have been there many times and have had great experiences. This time was horrible. We had guests from out of town and had booked a patio table more than a month ago and reconfirmed 2 weeks ago. When we got there they said there was a 45 min wait for the patio. We were forced to eat inside and then had a waiter who had no idea what he was doing and the food as just ok. For the price this is not at all what we expected. Don’t know that we will be back.

I love Lon's, one of the best places to sit on a patio. Unfortunately, this experience was an exception. Our server disappeared after ordering. We needed water and the french toast we received was not cooked in the middle. Another server stepped in to make everything right, as well as the manager. Bad day at Lon's but I will return it's still one of my favorite spots.

We’re there over two hours before food arrived. A lot of apologies but still over two hours.
A lovely place, especially for outdoor dining.

I ordered a medium filet. It came out rare, and the cut of meat was too full of gristle and tough. Very disappointing for the price. My wife's scallops were great. The somalier was great.

Birthday celebration for the four of us. Everything was wonderful except the undo stress of knowing we could dine outside with our 615p reservation. We arrived at 6 pm with many available tables in the main patio area. We were again told that we couldn’t be guaranteed until 615p. We are from places that don’t have inside dining yet and we’re very freaked out. I walked around a bit and found another patio completely empty with about 20 tables. We were finally seated in the back patio and just shook our heads (this happened the night before somewhere too). The service and the food were fantastic. I had scallops and they were perfection. After a fun birthday dessert we departed around 8 ish. We then discovered yet another patio with about 20 tables! I just don’t understand why we had to go thru that unnecessary stress got a 615 rsvn. I could understand 8.

As usual, food and service were impeccable. We arrived at dusk (our favorite time at Lon’s) and were greeted as usual making us feel at home. We have travelled the world and Lon’s, in our backyard, remains one of top three restaurants. We have NEVER been disappointed.

We have eaten at Lon’s several times over the last 10 years and have always enjoyed it. However, my bday dinner for five took three hours. Much much too long. Our server, Michael Mullin, was very good. My food, specifically, osso buco and pork belly, were tasteless. I will not be back soon.

I was so excited to return to Lon's for my bday tonight. Made a res for 4 at 7:30 requesting patio seating. Was told 45 min to 1 hr wait. Sooo..I can't fault them as they don't guarantee, but seriously, plenty of restaurants have figured this out. So we decided to sit at the patio high top bar table to get drinks and apps and wait for dinner table. The table was extremely wobbly and chairs impossible to move. Then the expensive metal shoulder strap on my purse gets stuck between the slats of the tabletop and my husband has to break it after struggling for 10 minutes with no one offering assistance. Service was interesting at the bar. Plates and utensils plopped down for us to distribute. Not quite the elegant experience I had experienced in the past. Holding a heavy menu and bar menu on my lap for an hour not fun. Ordered lobster tempura and pork belly. Both tasty. Neither were warm enough. Empanadas tasted like reheated frozen product. Tasteless. Nice dinner table now ready! Yay! Good service, comfortable table and chairs. Delicious mini corn muffins. Ordered "prime" NY steak. Well seasoned , not warm enough, but also the toughest piece of prime meat I've ever had. 2/3 came home and will be treats for my dog. Parm garlic fries were not freshly cut and fried. Definitely had the frozen texture. Brussels sprouts which have always been my favorite "go to" we're nothing like I remembered. A couple were so undercooked and tough that I had to spit out. No one else complained about their food but I know it's because it was my bday and they'd been feeling bad for all the mishaps. But my son's short rib seemed to take a lot of chewing for a braised meat. We were ready to go when they brought a comp brownie for my bday. OMG. It was so dry and awful that I just had to laugh at that point. What has happened to you, Lon's? We had a 5 Star meal there less than a year ago! So sad.

It's a top favorite of our for brunch.
Patio service feels very COVID safe and is a welcome break for everyone, especially for those who have been in quarantine.

We eat here 8-10 times a year, for more than a decade, and its consistently great, even through changes in chefs. But the last visit, a new chef, new menu and the food was subpar at best. The tortilla soup, formerly rich, spicy chicken broth with loads of chicken, is now a glob of thick red enchilada sauce looking stuff with three pieces of chicken. The tortellini second course was three tortellini filled with tasteless filling and submerged in a brown soup broth that was a salt bomb. The little gem salad was just weird. Leaves layered across the plate with a full piece of bacon glued on top with dressing and a splatter of blue cheese. The churro dessert is still there but the chocolate dipping sauce is now watery and tasteless. What used to be caramel sauce is now some cold white gunk, also tasteless. Really a disappointment. We will try once more with high hopes Lon's returns. If not, the "new" Lon's is sure to fail.

The Charcuterie board was fantastic. The toasted noble bread was buttery and delicious. We really loved the churro tree for dessert. Such a fun way to enjoy street food. The bartender Adam was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Fabulous service will come back soon.
