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

I have driven past this restaurant so many times, and finally had the opportunity to dine there on Saturday. I was very impressed with the food. Honest fresh ingredients, cooked with care with loads of delicious veggies, I was very happy! My chicken entree was yummy. The Prix Fixe menu was well priced with plenty of choice. Service was provided... More

Our family had dinner on Saturday night at Le Lyonnais in Acton, Massachusetts, a western Boston suburb. The menu is classical French with traditional preparation and sauces. All of our food was quite good. There is a small but very good wine list to accompany the meal. Service was very friendly but leisurely. We enjoyed not being rushed but you... More

My wife and I had dinner at Le Lyonnais and enjoyed all the courses, including the salad, entrees and dessert. The entrees of fish and pork were adequately prepared, though the pork was a bit more cooked than one would ordinarily find in France. My trout's champignon sauce was quite good. The salads contained a variety of fresh ingredients.. The... More
