Restaurant was casual, food and service were both great. We went for brunch, and the menu had a good selection. They provide a great list of unique and classic cocktails as well- looking forward to another visit. Overall, very satisfying.
The food service was very scattered and delayed and the staff was not apologetic and did not comp. there was nearly a 35 minute difference between the first person and last person receiving their food. Food was also cold when received.
Worst experience ever. Awful service, steak not prepared as asked, poor response to everything ... will never go back!
I come here often and am never disappointed in the food. The service on this trip wasn't the best I ever had, but certainly not terrible.
Everything was really good. Did nothing to help us celebrate our anniversary which was very disappointing. :(
Came to Lyon Hall for brunch before an event. We made reservations for 11:45am and the place wasn't too crowded. I can't remember our servers name but she was friendly. I had issues with dirty coffee mug and water cup. Both times, she took the dirty cup away and came back out with the drink already filled...that was quite disturbing as I couldn't inspect the cleanliness of the new cup...or if she perhaps just wiped away the dirt and filled the cup. Better training with that aspect is needed. The food was good. Best dish was the trout. The french toast was dry and the smoked salmon dish was bland. I would give this place another try and choose some different dishes. The table next to us said it was the best steak and eggs ever.
Lyon Hall continues to be our favorite place to dine in the DC area.
Sunday brunch for 14 - staff was so great & accommodating. Delicious coffee, tea & awesome food. Our party ages ranged from 4 months to 70 years - everyone was well taken care of & had a wonderful time.
Went for Anniversary dinner, were originally going to be seated in middle of dining room, but hostess saw an empty table away from folks and led us there. Glass of champagne complementary for our anniversary. Food was excellent as was beer. Will definitely return and would recommend.
We love this place and make it a must stop when in town. The food is very nice and service is friendly. Atmosphere is nice and relaxed. We enjoy the patio and the bar. The rainbow trout is well done. Don’t miss it or the beet salad. Merci Lyon Hall, for these 2
Love the food and service at Lyon Hall. The music is a bit loud for my tastes, but that's true at almost every restaurant I go to these days.
Apps were great, main course was a little over cooked.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding reception here in 2016. We were so taken care of by Gillian and the staff. The food & drinks were amazing! They accommodated our filipino heritage by making special filipino dishes that were amazing! My husband and I had so much fun celebrating our wedding. We were so impressed that we celebrated his milestone birthday in 2017 and reserved the room upstairs. Once again, they exceeded our expectations with food, drink and service. We still come to Lyon Hall for dinner every now and then, and consistently each time, our meals are delicious and service fantastic. We just love this place!
Came for restaurant week (same menu). Huge portions! The apps were amazing (tried the smoked salmon and doughnuts). Tried the croque madame (delicious) and quiche (just okay) for entrees and a couple of desserts. If I went again I would maybe just get apps since they were so big & tasty.
We visited during Restaurant Week and I'm glad we made a last-minute reservation beforehand because this place was PACKED! And for good reason! Our group of 4 was sat at a cozy table in the main room; the ambiance was just right for a nice Friday dinner, not too loud but still bustling. The menu was delicious and generous portions for most dishes even though I know some restaurants like to skimp on the options during Restaurant Week. The steak tartar was a great representation of the classic dish and the mussels were plump and cooked just right. My main was the braised pork shank and it was massive! My husband ate half of it and I was still stuffed. Great accompaniments for all the entrees, which I find is more rare these days. Typically you just get the meat and then have to supplement with additional sides, but all the dishes on the menu were well thought-out and paired with other flavors very well (we all tried each others' dishes haha). Our server was a little slow, but he was really busy so it wasn't a big deal. He was very courteous and gave great recommendations to make up for it. Cocktail list was inventive but not overwhelming, good choices for all drink palettes; also good wine by the glass choices. Will come back!
Great food and drinks
I hadn’t been to Lyon Hall since they got a new chef—he is fantastic! The menu is excellent and everything we ordered was outstanding. Kudos to Lyon Hall for letting people order off the regular menu for restaurant week. We will definitely be back, if only to have the ceviche and the croque monsiuer again!
Sean and the entire staff are knowledgeable and extremely hospitable. Classic French bistro cuisine with staples llike steak tartare and garlicky escargot, wonderfully rendered.
Always love happy hour at Lyon Hall. The SJF and french fries are the best. We sat outside which I normally love, but the service was awful. Literally couldn't order what we wanted because our server just disappeared for most of the meal. Really disappointing for what used to be one of my favorite spots.
The server was not attentive to our needs. After waiting for far too long to have our leftovers boxed, I had to literally walk over to a far table to wrangle our server away from his phone and chatting with colleagues. Food was good, service not so much.
Excellent value for the money, and they don't skimp on the portions of quite honest, well-prepared food. The combination of lobster scrambled eggs and field greens salad was an excellent post-workout refuel. Ambience always tip-top, not to mention the cocktails--lovely to see a kir royale on the menu.
Horrible loud music. Genre of music makes no sense for this place. This was a detractor for my group’s dinner.
My daughter and I each ordered steak (she got the hangar, I got the petit fillet). We both requested them to be cooked medium. Mine came out almost raw inside (bluish color). Hers was merely deep red rare. We sent them back to be reheated. Unfortunately, while the steaks were being reheated they appear to have left our plates out somewhere, so when they were returned the steaks were OK but the sides were cold. At that price point I expected better.
We had a great evening. Service was great – especially that we were not rushed!! Our waiter allowed us a leisurely evening even though the restaurant was packed. We dined outside at a table on the side street avoiding the noisy interior and main patio. the food was EXCELLENT!! – and not pricey! Well worth the 30 minute drive from Burke, VA.
Mussels steamed in wine, cream, garlic were delicious and the addition of spinach made it a really excellent dish. Camilo, the server was a careful and attentive in just the right amount. We enjoyed the meal very much.
What a great experience. This was our first visit, and we were very pleased. It's like a French bistro. Admittedly we visited at mid-afternoon, outside peak lunchtime hours, but we were impressed. Service was friendly and solicitous but not obtrusive. The food centered around standard bistro fare with a little flair, was very tasty, and delivered good value. The restaurant offers a nice list of wines and beers available by the glass, with a fairly abundant selection, as well as by the bottle.
The setting is charming, and (unusual for our area) the background soundtrack was great -- contemporary alternative without being screechy, at an appropriate volume level (neither too soft nor too loud). We came away very satisfied and certainly will return. Well worth a visit.
What a delightful bistro. I love to support restaurants in historic buildings because that’s my field but Lyon Hall goes beyond its building. Great wine list, great prices, great food for all types and you can always make substitutions as needed, great interior and patio, great for children. I’ve had so many fun brunches, quick lunches, lingering lunches and happy hours there. I’m relocating away from Lyon hall but will try to visit when I’m in town.
We love having Lyon Hall in the neighborhood. Great drink list and outdoor seating. We had the lobster roll and petit filet. I asked for no roll, but the bread is good. Both were delicious. We will be back for date night.
Took my mother and sister while they were in town. The dining area was loud enough from the bar area noise that it was difficult to converse. Service was fine, there were times we were looking for a server and unable to find one, but otherwise good. Food was excellent. Cocktails could use some work.
We all enjoyed the meal thoroughly. The server was knowledgable and quick to respond, the food was absolutely delicious! I know we will be bacl!
Reliable brunch menu and service. I’m adding Lyon Hall to my list of go-to brunch spots.
We went on a busy Saturday night. It's a bistro atmosphere, with tables close together. Don't expect to have a semi-private conversation at low volume. The food is well prepared and leans to French comfort food. We had a mussels pot and the pork shank. The portions were generous. An accompaniment to the mussels would be advised, even if only more baguette. The service was not bad, but also not attentive or helpful. We ordered an assorted cheese appetizer, explaining that we were not familiar with all the cheeses listed. The waiter made no effort to describe any of them. When the appetizer came, he did not bother to point out which were which. Maybe he didn't know either. The service was courteous but lacking warmth.
Overall service was poor. Just trying to shove us out and we’re focusing on other tables. Dessert needs some help. Creme brûlée was cold and hard like been sitting out all day.
This used to be our “go to”restaurant, but it has slipped. Service was slow and sloppy (though we appreciated the manager following up on this). Oysters were uneven, poorly shucked in many cases, missing their liquor. Mussels were quite tiny, though the broth is tasty. The major fail was the creme brulee - dreadful curdled texture with unappetizing brownish grey rhubarb in it. The crepes dessert was divine, though. So much potential, but it falls short. And this was our second so-so meal. We’ll be looking for another neighborhood spot...
Very good food. Quick service.
Wednesday night should have been more quite but it wasn’t. Oysters were tasty but small and shriveled, one so small it was barely there. Trout was so over cooked, it was more like trout jerky. Cream puff dessert was the saving grace of the meal. Service was so so.
Food was great! Loved sitting outside. Only complaint would be We would rather have side salad and appetizer before main course.
Will be back for sure.
Note for the kitchen: Best not to put a Frill Pick through a hamburger that has a fried egg on it. You popped the yolk and it ran down. The burger must have sat out for a while. By the time it got to me there was a ring of congealed circling the bottom bun. Not good eating.
Very sorry to see that they’ve cut back on their menu options. A brasserie should serve saucissons et chaucroute, yes? Only large platter option on the menu. More small bites — and not just sliders, please! Merci.
Always great service, great selection and quality of food, I eat here often and love the way they take care of customer and quality of the food.
