This is a cozy and historic little place in an antique farmhouse, with a very friendly wait staff and a master French chef of the generation of Jacques Pepin and Julia Child. It has an extensive menu and long wine list. We come every year for our anniversary, and have an amazing meal every time. Never crowded, but weekends are... More

It has been quite some time since my husband and I "treated" ourselves to dinner at Le Lyonnais Restaurant. We considered ourselves lucky to be served without a reservation. The ambiance is interesting -- an old house that has a series of small rooms that provide a quiet and cozy atmosphere, sort of shabby chic without being froufrou. The meal... More

We had close to the worst dining experience of our lives at this restaurant on a weekday evening in October. We've travelled extensively in Europe and France, eating at a wide variety of restaurants, bistros and cafés. We're in no way food snobs. The food here was just awful. There were maybe 15 people in total, most in a busy... More

Le Lyonnais has a real french menu: cassoulets, potages, crepes, escargot and meats done in the French style. The even had a ris de veau recently, which is an outstanding dish and something you only want to eat in a French restaurant. The setting of the restaurant just off the road surrounded by a small garden, pond etc in a... More

I enjoyed my meal - service was attentive and nicely paced to have a leisurely meal. Love the views from the back of the building, although I some parts of the home have a bit of a musty smell - perhaps some bleach cleaning might be in order. great location for a romantic meal

When we moved to Acton 18 years ago, I was pleased to see that there was a French restaurant in town. However, unfortunately, while the setting is lovely, the food is just average. The restaurant is in a beautiful old home, and the tables are beautifully set. Whenever we've been there, the service has been very slow (yes, very French!).... More

Totally blown away. I grew up in the area and in 30+ years have never been and went on Saturday night. I had no idea what to expect and I was so pleasantly surprised. It's an old house and the tables are close together which I'm not a fan of but the food was so delicous. Our server was rather... More

I can remember the first time I dined at Le Lyonnais. I had never tasted French cuisine. I loved it. The food was spectacular. I've tried other French restaurants but Le Lyonnais is by far my favorite and the food and ambiance keep me coming back. I find the dining rooms to be intimate and romantic. The pace is slow... More

Tonight we dined at your restaurant and Matt was our server. I ordered the mixed grill which was "tasteless and tough". How can tenderloin be tasteless?? When I asked Matt for mint for the lamb, be had a bewildered look as if to say...what's that?? He brought a few sprigs of mint leaves to the table and I wondered "... More
