    Backstory... I think we hit an off night during the post-Covid timeframe and the food and service were bad. Unfortunately we had out of town guests and had raved about the food and experience to come. Well the experience was bad enough to keep us away for over a year. Let’s chalk it up to understaffing and not having the A team in the kitchen. Last night was the experience I have, over many years, come to expect at Lon’s. We were promptly seated at our reservation time and enjoyed a table by the window. Service was attentive but not over bearing. Our main server was charming and informative. The Stetson from the house favorites cocktail list was yummy. The green apple and cucumber soup was amazing, unique and refreshing. We chose the scallops and the salmon and both were beautifully presented and delicious. Our cold and sweet finish was the gelato with berries. The entire dinner was perfection. So glad we came back.

    Lon’s provided a phenomenal dining experience. Upon our arrival (we were unfortunately very late for our reservation), the host and hostesses could not have been more friendly and welcoming. We felt terrible for being late, and they immediately made us feel at home. They asked if we were celebrating anything, and then seated us. Our server, Eric, was simply outstanding. He continued to provide the same experience, and the food was wonderful along the way. At the end of our meal, Eric brought a complimentary dessert to congratulate us on our special occasion. It was completely unexpected and totally generous - how neat that somehow the word was passed along, and Eric made it special. Go to Lon’s!

    We had the seafood combo. The estimated 6oz lobster tail was very good, but a little difficult to get out of the shell. The 3 very large shrimp were also good but not exceptional. The 3 large scallops are harder to rate, as I think they were cooked exactly as planned, however, seared on the outside, but pretty much raw throughout is not to my taste for any seafood. When I mentioned this to the manager, who came over, he insisted on providing a free dessert, which was excellent. The waitress was also excellent, and the entire staff very friendly and helpful.

    So my husband and I was celebrating my birthday plus Father’s Day, which only falls on the day every so 5 years. This was the perfect place for us to celebrate each other. The brunch menu was amazing. Large portions but not to heavy. The out door seating is very sexy! Our witness was amazing her name is Larrissa aka Larry. This restaurant is a much try for brunch or dinner.

    Overall everything was very good. However, our table was not ready even though I requested indoors. Also there were only 3 of us and the 4th place setting was not removed making it very cramped. No spoons came out with desserts. Just needed to be a little better organized but staff were great and food was wonderful!

    From the moment we arrived for our dinner reservation, we were treated so kindly! Eric was our server...he was excellent! Brian, the sommelier, took time to discuss wine options and we all agreed a Vermentino was perfect for our fish selections. Jon, the manager, was delightful and suggested a wonderful after dinner drink called the Citrus Get Real designed by Kaitlin. Delish!!! The whole dining experience at Lon's, plus our one night stay was 6 stars!!! Thank you all for making our 49th anniversary just perfect!

    The meal was average for fine dining and did not live up to the 4.8 star review. It was significantly overpriced - 1 appetizer, 2 main courses, and 1 dessert were $180. We started with the mushroom tempura, which was overly fried and greasy. We each had the filet and strip steak, which were cooked well but the strip and marble potatoes were excessively salted. The "candy bar" dessert was delicious, but overall the meal did not seem to be good value. Also, we found it distracting to our dinner conversation when they came by to refill our water glass after nearly every sip.

    Well…we went to the patio for a May breakfast a month ago and I gave a 5 star rating because our experience was delightful and far exceeded our expectations. However apparently they should not allow the Patio to remain open in June due to our hot weather in AZ. Because the staff made It VERY clear it was too hot for them to be working outside even though it was 88 degrees at 715 am It went from a previous stellar customer service orientation to all about the staffs needs. The patio wasn’t cleaned of significant debris and the fountain was shut down which is a huge part of the ambiance. We had to sit far away from others due to my husband having been in the hospital recently and Covid concerns. And you’d think we’d asked for the moon since it created such a stir. From the entrance with the valet… no greeting. Had to wait while he stood there clueless. The hostess no greeting or smile just huge concern about whether we still wanted the patio and attitude about sitting on the perimeter. Further lecture from the waitress about the issue. I was nearly in tears since we really just needed an uplifting experience after a long month of medical crisis. At least when they served one of our meals not done correctly they comped us for that and the waitress seemed to shift by the end of our stay. Still, it was heartbreaking to have such an extreme difference in attitude and service from our stellar May visit.

    This was a amazing place the whole experience was lovely! My only wish was they hadn’t put us at the little back table for our anniversary considering we had no real view and I asked for a special table. Everything else was great I don’t normally complain about little stuff but it was a very special night.
