Lyon Hall is a modern bistro serving approachable Alsatian-inspired fare, including an extensive selection of house-made charcuterie and sausages. The menu changes with the season to highlight fresh produce from local farms, as do the pastries, desserts and fresh bread.The affordable wine list focuses on French selections, while the impressive beer list offers an extensive selection of European drafts and bottles. Located in an historic art deco building in the heart of downtown Clarendon, Lyon Hall is a vibrant neighborhood spot with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Perfect for an elegant dinner in the stylish dining room, frankfurters and beer flights with friends at the lively bar, or enjoying a warm evening on the patio with a bottle of wine and selections from the dynamic cheese menu. The private room located in our mezzanine level offers a great spot for small to medium size groups enjoying a private meal or cocktail reception.

Unfortunately had a bad pot of mussels. I had to send them back and get something else. I love mussels and these were fishy. I could smell the bad aroma as soon as they put them down. So I ordered a burger. That was good but would never get mussels there again.

I took a date to Lyon Hall and had a great experience overall. The restaurant features an extensive beer and wine list along with a meat and cheese dominant French cuisine. I highly recommend the steak fries! Lyon Hall is a very popular restaurant and thus a little bit noisy, but if you're seeking a casual and not intimate ambience, this restaurant would be an excellent choice.

Another nice experience at one of my favorite restaurants in Arlington. We had gnocchi, the portion was a little on the small side. We also had the steak frites which were cooked exactly how I ordered.

I like Lyon Hall but mainly the first floor. I really do not like the upstairs: there is no ambience, it is like a differente bar. Not for me, also the chairs, not than comfortable.
Lyon Hall is very very loud ( not energetic, LOUD) so if you want to talk and have a conversation, not the right place).
Overall: I like the place, great food, nice place, devent prices, good service...and they have music DJ later at night.

Overall great experience. Happy hour was good - we got the pretzel with our drinks, delicious dips. Dinner included a burger which was standard and a Thai mussle pot which was delicious. Great service too.

Had an 8 top gathering for my wife's birthday and the service and food were excellent. Only thing that was slightly disappointing was the lack of singing or candle on the dessert :( But nonetheless, I would recommend Lyon Hall to anyone.

The service and the food was on point. The only complaint I have is that it was so dark in there it was really hard to see the menu, and I’m in my 20s with great vision lol

LOVED that restaurant week allowed us to have almost anything off the regular menu, as opposed to a set list of items. Had a great bottle of wine. The tuna tartar was a very generous portion. Mussels - always good.
Will be back.

Mixed feelings about this time at Lyon Hall. I have been many times and always enjoyed it. This time, on the plus side, all of the food was very tasty. On the negative side, it took over 2 hours to get all of our food and my husband ended up with some piece of plastic in his dinner. They were apologetic about both issues, but not a good look for a moderately expensive meal.
