    Lyon Hall is excellent! The service is always great, and the food is even better! We got the mussel pot as an app for 3 to split which was excellent, fresh, and flavorful, and a great value. You get a great amount of mussels for the price! All of our entrees were delicious, and we especially loved the brussels sprouts and fried artichokes we ordered on the side! We had to wait a few minutes for our table, but that is too be expected with a popular place! Lyon Hall is popular for good reason, a Clarendon staple!

    Not once did our server check on us or even acted like we were there. We got water from another server, plates cleared only when asked, my meal was nearly complete before i could put in an order for a mimosa which turned out to be undrinkable, and it was my birthday, so sorta underwhelming.

    My partner and I always come to Lyon hall for the same exact thing: we share a pot of mussels and frites, a burger and side salad. SO. DELICIOUS. I’m sure the other menu items are incredible but we are too addicted to our order to try anything else! The cocktails are always wonderfully crafted, and there is a great selection of wine and beer. 10/10 service, quality, and ambiance every time.

    Parking was tough so we were a bit late. Advised they were running behind. We were seated about 45 minutes past our reservation. Place was very busy, perhaps because of Restaurant Week. The charcuterie was excellent and plenty for two. Grilled octopus was perfectly cooked and didn’t need any of its accompaniments. Our entrees, both fish tasted overly salty. My dessert was a perfect bread pudding.

    Lyon Hall has the vibe of a French bistro, although it’s more spacious. The mussel pot was delicious and the burger outstanding. If you don’t mind sharing, skip the French fry additional option with the mussel pot and share the ones that came with the burger.

    We dined during happy hour on Sunday afternoon around 5 pm. The main menu comes available at 5 pm and happy hour runs until 6 pm, so we were able to order from both. We had filet medallions, Lyon Hall burger, the bar burger, and mushroom risotto. All were delicious. Tying it all together, our server did an excellent job. Top notch experience. The kids loved the fries. The French 75 was terrific. The SJF cocktail is a great value during happy hour.

    The atmosphere is really good for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Not a place to bring kids really, that's not a complaint just try not to bring them. The food is good and rich, drinks are good too, service a little slow but its a busy place. A definitely one for a relaxing Sunday brunch

    Server was excellent. Food outstanding. One issue I had was when we arrived - a bit early we were directed to wait by the bar. We could see our table from bar which we were later directed to. It would have been nice to have allowed us to sit at our table when we arrived. I didn’t feel it was necessary for us to wait until exactly our reservation time.

    Lyon Hall never disappoints. I was warmly greeted and seated within minutes. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. I had the steak frites and it was amazing. The steak was perfectly cooked, the frites were the perfect crispness and the greens had just the right amount of acidity. I’m looking forward to going again very soon.

    Lyon Hall is consistently one of our favorite restaurants in the DC area. Service is impeccable. Food is delicious. Prices are comparable to the area with happy hour pricing and selection one of the best, plus they offer happy hour 7 days a week. We’ve enjoyed lunch, dinner and brunch, all with 5 stars across the board.
