I took my boyfriend here for dinner and drinks. We were in heaven with every single bite. We got calamari for appetizer, salmon and beef brisket for our main courses, and the most amazing lemon cheesecake for dessert. Even the bread board they brought out beforehand was to die for. Service was great, atmosphere was very romantic, and our drinks were incredible. Love this place! Definitely recommend!

Although we’ve eaten here before and it was romantic and the food was excellent this time I must say we were very disappointed. We came to celebrate my wife bday with dear friends on a Friday night, the food was sub par. Expecting the wagyu steak to live up to its reputation, but that did not happen as the two 3 inch squares tasted like smoked sausage and the halibut was under cooked. It was so warm and humid inside even the waiters were sweating, we even asked the wait staff to turn down the air. All in all we were not happy spending $350 for 4 of us on dinner and drinks and certainly not getting our monies worth, sorry to say.

Food, wine and service were great. We were staying at the Inn and were able to really enjoy the ambiance. We had the 3 course summer menu. Deacon was our server and took good care of us. We also had Hayden one morning for breakfast who was excellent and also gave us a tour of the wine cellar.

I went through Open Table to get our reservation and it indicated we could sit at 9, 9:15, 9:30, 9:45 for brunch. Lon's did not serve brunch until 10. They were very gracious to host us and let us get caught up for the 30-45 minutes as they prepared, so it all worked out wonderfully.

Lon’s is one of our favorites spots in Phoenix. Very charming and food is always very good. This time we were not pleased by seating in front dining room. We have always dined in the back dining are. Seating there is more comfortable and tables are larger. Our waiter seemed rather new and was not familiar with the wines and items on the menu.

Once again Lon's hits it out of the ballpark. This was the first time we sat inside. Patio not setup due to summer temps. Inside was very nice , I like the fact one feels the history of the place. Food was excellent and whenever we order off the wine list the juice is peaking. If you want to say welcome a friend to Arizona say it at Lon's at the Hermosa

Lon's, at the historic Hermosa Inn, is a destination setting with views of the camel and a sweeping outdoor eating area around an old fountain. Like a lot of places a few years ago, changing chefs confused the diner with small plates, this and that and ruined menus all over town. Time has proven that nonsense and Lon's is BACK. I just had not been back in several years, but was so pleasantly surprised with their menu. We tried the crab cakes which were tasty, moist and had a dash of chipolte sauce. We shared the strawberry salad which had lots of grunchy ingredients...pecans, small sapple slices, strawberries, feta and a tasty dressing. Our attenttive waiter Hayden made the visit so fun and friendly. Love the old patina feel of this well worn resort.....I felt like an old movie star like Tom Mix would walk through the room. Great to live in Scottadale and enjoy a culinary delight in a sensatiinal setting. Loved the menu....thoughtful, oh so tasty, fair value too! Would definitely go back because of other choices I want to try. Thanks Hayden for making our day!

We came in for the summer tasting menu, but Lon’s ran out of Alaskan Halibut, easily the best dish of the night... . Manager John came over apologized, which was very professional! But the waiter offer nothing to replace the halibut dish. Make you wonder their sincerity or just lip service.

We will be back We are local. Will find out if the deal was indeed real.

The food was not only excellent it was very nicely presented and the service was also excellent, I thoroughly recommend Lon's. The value was also very good considering the quality of the food and the ambiance of the venue. The outside patio was lovely, it was not an extension of the parking lot but really a proper patio.

Probably the best-cooked steak (filet migńon) that I've eaten at a restaurant in at least a few years. The rest of the meal did not disappoint, with an unusual attraction being the Himalayan salt seared ahi tuna. The ahi slices were placed vertically, with garnish, on a heated block of black sea salt, and the yozu-soy sauce was added at the table. We let the ahi sear just a bit longer, then moved them to the plate - so enjoyable and fun to eat! Sitting on the patio under a tree canopy in the pleasant evening air was an added bonus.

The only minus was that the wine pairing for the dessert after my wife's "Taste of Summer" meal was not served, and we forgot about it, too, until we returned home and were remembering our experience.

Regardless, we will definitely return.

We dined at Lon’s for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was an excellent experience. Richard our server was great along with the rest of the support staff. Food was outstanding, including the margaritas. They even made the occasion a little more special with a personalized touch by including a card & flower. We will definitely be back!

The food was mediocre. We were four people. I had the salmon which was very good and asked that it be served without the sauce and with simply broccolini. It was served in a bowl(????) difficult to manage.

My husbands short ribs were not very good.

The vegetables were soggy and not very attractive.
The mashed potatoes were good.
My friend had a steak which he did not comment on.
His wife had the last duck - very gamey!

The service was slow.
Had to ask for water to be refilled.

The atmosphere on the patio was delightful.

I think in the future we will stick to the bar area and the usually wonderful bar menu and skip the "fancy dining." Not so fancy.
