You will never be disappointed!!
This is an iconic Boutique Hotel, with an amazing restaurant and bar! At Lon’s, you can enjoy their warm and inviting bar, or dine with them, inside or outdoor patio. The property is beautifully designed “Arizona style“. The views are magnificent! We have never been disappointed in the food and its always spectacular! The entire staff is always warm, friendly, engaging and extremely accommodating.
Absolutely our favorite restaurant in all of Arizona!

We and another couple went to Lon’s to celebrate a birthday and an anniversary. The staff greeted us upon arrival and we were seated at a quiet table in the dining room.

The entrees were each delicious and we find leisurely, enjoying every moment of our evening. We were surprised with greeting cards and dessert from the staff.

Thank you Lon’s for a memorable evening.

Lovely setting, pretty good food but excruciatingly slow service and a waiter with an attitude. The service and the waiter made what we hoped would be an enjoyable lunch for our out-of-town guests not so enjoyable. And, we were one of only three or four tables with diners on the whole patio. We were disappointed as we have enjoyed Lon’s in the past.

Excellent service. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. The garden is just lovely and highly recommend this as a special place for outside dining. Food is also very good. Had the shrimp and crab salad. Delightful! My only other comment would be that that gal at the front desk, Hannah, be a bit more accommodating and friendly - she seemed a little stoic and distracted. This is a great place and we will be back!

Was on New Years Day. No special meals . regular menu. No on knew who was to wait on us. We sat for over w0 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. When a waiter did, he was so personable. He chose to wait on us. Meal was awkward. Soup came at end of main course.
Disappointed with the restaurant. Will not be 1st choice to go back again.

We came for brunch on Dec 31 which is my birthday. Service was slow all though it did not look busy. I asked for crispy bacon, it was chewy. The scrambled eggs were under done. I had better expectations. It’s a lovely property and I’ve had a wonderful dinner and previous brunch that was better. Won’t go for brunch again but haven’t written it off.

Nice Christmas lunch although the inability to order from the menu was not explained on the Open Table app when we made our reservation. We wanted to be able to order off a regular menu and not a pre-Frix menu. So while the food and service were both really good we did not get what we wanted.

The food, service, and ambiance was fantastic. However, we came for our before-Christmas date with a card from Phoenix Fine Dining Group which Lon's would not accept on a weekend. The black-out dates do not mention weekend restrictions. Overall good experience but disappointed in the miscommunication.

Wow, such an awful experience. Ordered 2 salads, they forgot to bring one so it ended up coming after the first was finished so we had to eat in shifts for course 1. Then steak came out overcooked so had to send it back. Took forever to get new one which meant that again, we were eating in shifts. When new piece came out it was charred on the outside and raw on the inside (and was also just not a good looking piece of meat in general). Again sent it back and they returned with the same piece of meat, charred even more and still not cooked through. Chilean Sea Bass was only okay. They took off one salad and the steak (that we couldn't eat) from the bill, but we still spent over $100 for a terrible experience. So disappointed!!!

Line has been a longtime favorite of our family for many many years however it seems to have lost the magic.. this year was not decorated for the holidays as it use to be and many details have been lost. There 3 different shares of light bulbs in the dining room and I was getting a tan while eating due to a full blast me16 bulbs shining in ny face. There was no ambient music, the staff seems rushed and unfriendly ...
Very disappointing given there are so many options in Phoenix ...

Bad service, sat at a table, sort of in the back room. Some of the food was good the rest average or bad.

Had to get up from the table 3 times to get servce.

I have been here before with very different results, but most likely will not go back, for the price not worth the drama. And no acknowledgement of the lack of service.

We have been to Lon's many times and always liked it. Sunday was no exception. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there; from the moment we walked in and were greeted with "Happy Anniversary" until we left, we were made to feel special. The food, as always, was excellent and the service matched it. We were given a cozy table in the corner away from other diners; the dining room manager asked us if we would like a larger table but we were happy where we were. Waiting for us was a chilled bottle of champagne our friends had sent. From the seared tuna on Himalayan salt brick to the chocolate dessert with berries, our meals were delicious.
Thanks to Lon's for a truly special experience.
