First off the hostess was AMAZING. As was the assistant to the server. And the pork chop was one of the best I’ve ever had.

The server and remainder of our food on the other hand left little to be desired and I would NOT RETURN because of those two items. You just can’t mess up service and food in this day and age.

Our server was clearly put off by serving two gay men or multi racial men. Couldn’t tell. He was unattentive to any of our needs compared to me observing his involvement at other tables close to us. An example, I asked for pepper and salt. It took him over 7 minutes to bring to us and stopped and laughed and chit chatted at another table on the way. Meanwhile, our very bland and over cooked risotto was getting cold. When our food was delivered we asked for more corn muffins. Halfway through our meal I asked again. Server said they were cooking. When they arrived about 5
minutes later they were cold as ice. Clearly had not been baking. So why would our server lie. He never offered or came to refill waters or hot tea. The assistant generously fillled our waters after we asked for them.

It was a FIRST date. I asked for a fireplace setting romantic and quiet. We did not get this. I would not return and am very disappointed. We are both foodies and love eating out. We have so many amazing choices In the valley. This is not one of them.

What an extraordinary experience! The patio on an autumn evening at Lon's at the Hermosa Inn is spacious and beautiful. The service was excellent, and the food was outstanding. My book club was celebrating our 24th anniversary of reading together, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect spot. It was quiet and therefore very easy to talk together. It was a perfect spot for a special evening.

We ordered 4 dishes
- salmon was a 7/10 just OK
- bison - the grilled half was excellent (the other half was just fair)
- the sea bass was fishy
- the duck was OK 7/10 but the veggies with it were 10/10
- the best dish of the night was mushroom tempura

Easily one of the finest reasturants we have ever been to. And we have been to MANY all over the world. Amazing food, service, and ambiance. Outdoor dining next to fountains, palm trees, and desert mountains as a back drop.

We've been to Lon's a number of times, particularly for special occasions. The outdoor dining is some of the best in the valley, especially at sundown or after. The wine list is extensive and diverse with many Arizona wines. It was my wife's birthday and upon checking in the staff wished her a happy birthday and presented her with a birthday card signed by the staff. They are genuinely glad you came to Lon's. The food, as always was excellent. We both had the filet mignon. Lon's is one of Phoenix's iconic restaurants with a history and don't forget the Hermosa Inn part. The prices are comparable to other upscale restaurants and not exorbitant. This is the place you want to go for happy hour and a great place to take friends visiting from outside Arizona, especially in the non-summer months. We highly recommend it.

One of our favorites! My wife and I come to Scottsdale about every year or so for a business meeting, and we ALWAYS sneak out to Lon’s (the first time was upon the recommendation of the staff at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort). We love the atmosphere outside, the service has always been superb, the menu is unique an very well planned. The new Happy Hour seems fantastic, and my recent experience with the bartender was top notch and very much appreciated... he helped me recreate a cocktail from a list of ingredients that were scrawled on a paper I photographed and kept on my phone....! It was great fun.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Lon's. The staff left us a card signed by their team. Our dessert had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate sauce. I had mentioned our anniversary on Open Table and they actually paid attention and responded with something special! It was much appreciated! The food was outstanding with imaginative presentation (Ahi served with a red hot Himalayan salt block to "sear yourself").

Lon’s is my favorite place to take out-of-town guests for brunch. I love to see the look on their faces when they walk into the outdoor dining and conversation areas. It’s such an inviting place. It’s so lovely to sit by the fireplace and sip champagne and bask in the desert air. All of the dishes are deliciously prepared. The Eggs Benedict is one of my favorites. The service is A1. The grounds are so beautiful and well cared for along with the restaurant itself. It’s always a treat to go to Lon’s.

The setting of Lon's is the only aspect of our dining experience that was positive. Our salads were overdressed and ordinary. Our entrees, salmon and a pork chop were not creative and a bit overdone. Our server was in no way attentive. He held two long and loud conversations with the patrons seated beside us. Other servers intervened to serve, clear our plates, and present a dessert menu, which we declined. We rarely have a negative dining experience. How unfortunate this was to experience while on a lovely trip.

Perfection! It doesn't get better. We had never been to Lon's before although we had heard favorable reviews. As good as the reviews were, Lon's was better. From the time you pull up to the Valet until the time you return for your car it is a delightful experience. The hostess promptly and courteously sat us on the gorgeous patio. We were quickly given water and bread. Our waitstaff was engaging, personable and knowledgeable. The food-sublime. Don't pass up the shrimp on salt block appetizer. My husband ordered the pork chop but didn't like the suggested mole sauce. The waiter suggested a different sauce but stated it didn't need a sauce. He was right. Lon's will not disappoint.
