I absolutely loved this place, everyone was friendly and professional. We did breakfast/brunch and the French toast was AMAZING!
Any of the mussels dishes are amazing and very different from the usual. Super accommodating to my friend who has both gluten and dairy allergies.
Best. Mussels. Ever. We tried the traditional wine base with a touch of creme fresh but plan to go back and try each and every preparation offered. BYOB with a reasonable corkage, even offered to decant for us. Nice Steak Frites - I would go back just for the frites. Mussels and fries, life is good! Cappucino so good, I had two. The creme brulee so delicious, we ordered a second. Yes, decadent. Yes, worth it! Thanks for a great afternoon wine lunch with a friend.
Outstanding service,menu selection,friendly atmosphere -highly recommend for any occasion .
The Service, Food & Atmosphere was all really great. Everyone enjoyed their lunch ! The place was busy for a Sunday Lunch and I thought the potato salad was execeptional.
We will be back !
I recommend Lyon Hall without exception. We had our book club meeting with brunch and we coukd hear each other vert daily though it was a full house. The menu has healthy range of choices, everyone enjoyed their food, service was wonderful.
We went for brunch. First I'll say my cappuccino was very good. I hate to provide a negative review, but they really shouldn't be sending out food like this... I ordered "Poached eggs w avocado, smoked bacon, heirloom tomato, red onion, croissant." The avocado was actually a very pale green-gray mush that I guess was someone's take on guacamole. It was spread onto a mediocre (at best) croissant with 2 ICE COLD poached eggs. The eggs were so cold I can't imagine they were even cooked within the hour, or possibly that day. The heirloom tomato was 1 red grape tomato and 1/2 of a yellow grape tomato. The smoked bacon was comprised of 2 cold, very crispy 1-2 inch pieces criss-crossed on the top. I got a couple of bonus slices of bright purple dragon fruit on top which I'm guessing were put on their to distract from the color of the "avocado" because dragon fruit does not go with that kind of dish. In sum, it was poorly described and poorly executed.
Seated within 5 minutes of our reservations. Per our waiter recommendation, had the trout and steak -- both were perfectly cooked, perfectly paired with other ingredients and just delicious. Also had a house salad and pretzel w/dip (just ok). Bread pudding dessert was also good. Was hesitant to go here with friends as other reviews said the atmosphere was too loud. Found that, though lively, we could easily hold a conversation at normal voice levels. Would highly recommend!
Party of 10, ages 12-83, everyone loved their dinner. Stand-out entrees were short ribs, Thai mussels, trout and filet mignon. Get pretzel appetizer and choose a great beer from the excellent bar menu to start.
Love Lyon Hall. Chefs feature dish was on point! Can’t wait to go back.
More German than French, in my opinion. Don’t come here looking for a French experience.
A great neighborhood place. Crowded and loud, but an interesting menu, excellent food and a variety of beers and wines.
Excellent spot for a leisurely reunion with friends we hadn't seen in years!
Absolutely atrocious. The service was poor, the cocktails were disgusting, and the food was inedible. We left after appetizers which we waited 40 minutes for and went to Ambar.
Great service and great for groups. The menu has good variety and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend!
Food was great, I went with my parents for a birthday dinner and my Dad has many food allergies, Chef and wait staff were extremely helpful in answering questions and ensuring that his meal was within his restrictions and delicious.
The Brussels sprouts are delish! We sat outside so noise wasn't an issue.
Helluva good neighbor happy hour!
Easily the worst service I've received all year, maybe longer. I had to keep flagging down bus boys, other waiters, anyone walking by to try to get a hold of my waiter. I don't know what else he had going on, but working as a restaurant server should not be his chosen career path. The food was decent... Brussel sprouts were crispy and flavorful, the french toast was very buttery and even slightly crunchy in a good way. We received free donuts because the service was so bad, but those were big, dry, and uneventful. This was my second time to Lyon Hall, the first time I went the food was not great, but the service was pretty good. This time the opposite was true. Hopefully, if I go back a third time they'll be able to get both right.
We sat outside for dinner. Inside bar was crowded. Good service. Definitely try the mussel pots!
Had brunch here. Didn't care for the donuts but the rest of the food was wonderfully delicious. Great, personable service and everything served quickly. Will definitely be going back.
Totally uninspired from the decor (train station) to the service to the menu. So many better options for brunch in Arlington.
A good selection of fresh, well-prepared dishes. But why oh why does the music have to be so loud?
We were there again the other night. The new fall menu is out. The chicken wings la Orange were fabulous!
Always enjoy Lyon Hall. Good, consistent experience.
Amazing happy hour! LOVE the mussels and bread! Incredible value.
Four of us went for lunch before a class held at GMU-Arlington. No two of us had the same, but every dish was outstanding in its class. The mussels Normandy were superb, with rich and tasty broth, the onion soup was classic and rich. the smoked salmon with bright egg salad was perfectly presented and herbed, and the wiener schnitzel sandwich was perfectly done. Two of us had French white wines, which were impressive and interesting for the price. It was the birthday of one of our party (noted on our Open Table reservation), and the manager was so very gracious, presenting the birthday gal with a menu of deserts that were on the house, and her choice, a chocolate mouse cake with fresh blackberry sorbet on the side, was one of the best we have ever tasted. All in all, the manager and staff made sure it was a memorable occasion, even for a weekday lunch. The food is one of the best values in Arlington.
Worst service I've ever had in a restaurant. Just pathetic.
Over priced, particularly the wine, which is bordering on rip-off territory.
Great service - attentive but not "in your face". Nice fresh entrees. Loved that they give you a taste of a glass of wine before you commit.
Sitting outside was a nice touch.
We always stop here when we are in town. Always something new to try on the menu!
A great place to dine.
Lyon hall has really tanked in the last few years. The food was bad and their signature cocktail the sjf is not the same as it used to be. Sad because this used to be one of my favorite spots in Clarendon.
Food is delicious, and price is right. Very good value for kids' meals. Service is spotty (e.g., waiter could not remember who ordered which entrée, and forgot to make requested changes for child's dish). The volume of the music is too loud under the outside awning, which makes it very difficult to hold a conversation. This was my second such experience under the outside awning. Overall good experience, but wish that we could have sat elsewhere in the restaurant.
Always enjoyable! Food and service were both on point -- lovely experience!
Food is great, but it shouldn't take 20 minutes for a server to come to the table, and that was after asking bus boys to please send over our server.
The food was very good and the service matched that. I would definitely eat here again.
Lyon Hall is one of my favorite Arlington Restaurants. I've never had a dish I didn't enjoy, and I enjoy getting some cheeses with wine, mussels (generous portions), and another dish. Delicious and reasonably priced brunch, as well! Noise level doesn't get high until after 9pm.
Excellent for what I wanted. Noisy but possible to hear and talk across a table. Food was great- heirloom tomato salad and superb lobster roll. Cocktailsxwere imaginatcrxandxwell described. Very good service.
