This was my first visit to Lyon Hall with a friend. The breads before dinner were very good. The Heirloom Tomato Salade and Chocolate Praline Pot De Creme were delicious. However the Roasted 1/2 Chicken was okay, tasted like a regular pan roasted chicken, nothing special. The service was excellent. We got there early and by the time we left,... More

Went to this restaurant on a Saturday night for Restaurant week with a friend. Despite it being very busy, we were seated promptly (we did have a reservation). We were happy to be seated outside since the noise level inside was loud. Their whole menu was available for restaurant week with just a few exceptions. Food was very good, service... More

.....it just continues to disappoint. The atmosphere is nice and the staff seem very professional but the food just leaves something to be desired. The first time I went there we had these wonderful pretzels to start. Three different kinds with different mustard sauces. Delicious! However, my main course was the charcuterie platter. I love charcuterie but theirs was just... More

The moules au vin blanc are fantastic and should not missed. The steak frite was delicious although a todd on the cold side maybe due to the fact that the kitchen is located downstairs. Same problem for one of my guests whose filet mignon was cold. The pot de creme au chocolat is just fantastic. Great service, nice rose wine... More

Have been to Lyon Hall on multiple occasions and never have been disappointed. Great menu selection, moderate process and expert service. Noise level is acceptable (not great but acceptable). We always go back.

Went with friends to Lyon Hall. Their menu while small was exceptionally diverse, something that doesn't suit them well. Overall I wasn't impressed with their food and it was exceptionally overpriced. The service was average, nothing special, nothing detrimental.

There were five in our group. Two had been here before, and felt we would enjoy it. They were right. It was wonderful! Everything we had was great. Having said that, my personal favorites were the French onion soup and Garganelli bolognese. The olives we ordered were a nice selection and plentiful. The asparagus appetizer was also nice. The Sweet... More

Love, love, love going to Lyon Hall for breakfast. I have been here 3 times and am never disappointed. My most recent visit was on a Saturday morning after going to the Arlington Farmers Market (separate review) with my husband for a leisurely breakfast. We were able to eat outside, which has such a wonderful European feel. I ordered the... More

I love Northside Social (sister restaurant), so when I had the chance to visit my daughter and take her out to brunch, I made a reservation here. Disappointingly, the food did not measure up to what this ownership group gives you at Northside at a much higher price. I had the "Bohemian Breakfast", consisting of a decent pulled pork hash,...

The servers were disinterested and the menu pretty sparse. Meals were sizeable but the quality did not match the price. Not terrible but not worth a second visit.
