    I’ve been going to Lyon Hall for years and have always had delicious food and a positive experience. With this in mind, I brought some out-of-town guests to Lyon Hall for restaurant week. The hostess was lovely, the price was great for the options available, and the wine never disappoints. The food, sadly, was a horrible miss. I’m not sure if it was because it was a Sunday and normal kitchen staff/chef was on leave or too busy and flustered because of reassurance week, but our lobster bisque was ice cold (ice cold), the pork was about 2 inches thicker than usual (hadn’t been tenderized), the “lyonnaise” potatoes were just cubed roasted potatoes and the Bernaise sauce had dill (!!!!) not tarragon. It was like someone had decided to give the middle finger to French cuisine. I would have gladly paid regular prices to have regular Lyon Hall quality. I was embarrassed for having promised something wonderful and been so disappointed. Also, as a person with a severe onion (allium) allergy, please consider noting on the menu that your persillade sauce includes raw onion. A traditional French persillade is parsley and garlic - not onion - so folks may not expect it. Same with the arugula side salad with the pickled onions. We’re not giving up on Lyon Hall, but this was a poor performance for our $400. Sorry - meant to send this directly to Lyon Hall but it won’t let me copy and paste.

    Bar area was amazing; bartenders attentive and drinks on point. We were seated - perfect window seat! Server never filled water glasses; short rib, dry and chewy; maybe because it was end of the night. French fries were cold. Boar in pasta was hard. Flank steak delicious. I ate at Lyons Hall over the summer and it was fantastic! Last night it was perfect for drinks and ambiance celebrated husband’s 60th. We absolutely loved the welcoming rose toast offered. The food wasn’t special. It didn’t match the occasion at all. We tipped generously to server still because we know the work involved.

    Escargot was great, potato element of braised short rib was dried within an inch of its life. Short rib itself was fairly good, but would not order again. Usually love it here but not sure what went wrong with this dish, perhaps the rush of restaurant week.

    Lyon HallResponded 6 days agoLara, We are sorry to hear that your braised short rib was less than stellar. We value feedback from our guests and have shared your comment with our chefs and culinary team. Again, our apologies for the less than stellar dish. We hope you will join us again.

    In all the years I've lived in the area, I've somehow never made it to Lyon Hall for dinner. I'm glad I finally did. The hostess greeted myself and all guests as far as I could see warmly. Ali at the bar, took great care of me while I waited for my dining partner, and our server was just great. Although, the three courses of restaurant week were a bit more than my appetite could handle, I'm glad I got to try so many great menu items. Note to my fellow crème brûlée lovers, LH's version was delightfully un-sweet like mascarpone under a crispy sugar crust. Just lovely. We'll definitely be back again.

    Lyon HallResponded 6 days agoThank you for joining us! We are glad to hear that your experience was great from start to finish. We also value feedback from our guests and will be sharing yours with our Pastry Chef and team. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Where to start....this place is AMAZING. The oysters were so fresh. Nice pour of wine. Mussels are cooked to perfection and the sauce....so good! My husband and daughter had the burger...juicy and delish...they let me have a bite. My Cesar Salad and French Onion Soup were really good. Can't wait to go back. Will add...our server was probably the best server I have had in a long time. The receptionist was so nice and pleasant...the party prior to us was taking their time and she was very apologetic and worked hard to get us seated. Definitely hitting this one up again. Perfect night! Thanks!

    Lyon HallResponded 6 days agoLeslie, Thank you for dining with us and being understanding about the previous party taking their time. We value feedback like yours and I will be sure to share it with our Chefs, culinary team, and the staff that worked that evening. We hope to see you again soon.

    We had a lovely experience getting together as friends at Lyon Hall on Sunday 12/19/22. The food was delicious, hot when put on the table, flavorful, quality ingredients, and great prices. The service was a bit slow because it seemed like a few larger parties were inundating the servers at the same time as our order, but the manager came over to take our orders themself and put them in for us so we didn't have to keep waiting. Everyone was polite. The whole place, including the restrooms, was super clean, and the decor for the holidays was festive and tasteful.
