We had a wonderful meal at Lon's while staying at the Hermosa Inn. The outdoor seating area is beautiful with large trees & beautiful landscaping, mesquite burning fireplace, and heat lamps. The service was initially very slow, but it improved after we mentioned something. All of the staff were very friendly and courteous & since it was our first visit, we were informed about the history of Lon. The bison and short rib dish was absolutely divine--particularly the bison. We especially loved the seared ahi tuna appetizer--such a unique presentation & so tasty. The only thing that fell a bit short was the calamari appetizer--the breading was a bit too overpowering and heavy for our taste. All in all, a lovely experience & I highly recommend!

The food was quite tasty. The wait staff and sommelier were very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. The sound system for the Christmas music needs work. It turned out to be a very pleasant dining experience.

The whole experience at Lon's was nothing less than extraordinary. We had a fantastic Anniversary dinner. Our table was out on the patio by the fire. The table had fresh flowers and a card signed by the entire staff. The service was exceptional. I had the tasting menu which was very moderately priced. It was also delicious.

It was a lovely day so we asked for an outside table for our business lunch and the patio was about half full. We were seated next to a table of ten ladies and then a family of eight. The noise level was unacceptable but I was loathe to request a move. Just 15 feet away were at least 6 empty tables. Food was fine but service was slow and empty glasses sat for a long time.
What a shame.

I've always loved the atmosphere at Lon's, especially the patio. An out-of-town friend and I enjoyed the beautiful setting, as well as some amazing lunch fare. I was impressed that the chef sent out word that I should not add Ahi tuna to my salad because it wasn't up to his standard. The service, overall was great. I would definitely recommend Lon's for any meal, especially when you can get out on the patio and enjoy good weather.

I have been to Lon's many times in the past. This time was really not what i expected or my friend who joined me. The waiter was argumentative and finally acceeded to our wishes. Half way through the brunch, the landscapers started the blowers and lawn mower a few tables away on the patio! Unheard of! We were very put out! They did eventually stop at our request but we shouldn't have even had that experience!

Our Manhattans and Martinis were great, albeit very small. The food (appitizers and main courses) was outstanding--foie gois, bison, salt tuna and filet mignon. service was outstanding, and outdoor dining was delightful.

Great Outdoor Dining Experience!
We celebrated a birthday at Lon's and everything was perfect - staff was excellent, brunch menu was great ( ordered the Eggs Hollandaise with crab cakes and the other party had waffles, yummy cocktails) and they sent a delicious birthday dessert. The landscape is beautiful and a vey relaxing venue - Thank you

Good sommelier too. I've eaten at many fine places throughout the world, this place lands in my top 5...Yowazza!!!!

This s our favorite Scottsdale restaurant that we have enjoyed for over 5 years. While the gardens and facilities have been updated, the food has suffered. My chicken was overdone and lacking any sauce. My husband's fish was bland and overcooked. We will still go back for the ambiance with high hopes of better food.

So I would like to give Lon’s a 5 star rating but for one thing - they had to try three times to cook a filet to medium doneness. The first time they brought it out it was raw inside, the second medium rare(very red) and then finally the third go was acceptable. By then though 5 of the 6 people in our party were done eating. Needless to say it was disappointing.

The rest of us did enjoy our meals and the waiter was attentive and sitting outside was enjoyable especially with the fire in the fireplace near our table.

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.

This was our second dinner during a very short stay in Phoenix. Had another wonderful evening. Both times the entire staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable, and service was efficient but not rushed. Several excellent menu choices, including a tasting menu which we did not have but is well priced. The open air garden patio with its fountain and fireplaces is a beautiful setting with a warm, inviting ambience. We hope to make this one of our favorite spots when in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.
