I went to Lyon Hall for drinks and ate outside, so I didn't see much of the interior of the restaurant. I would describe the decor as like an upscale diner - lots of metallic finishes but much nicer furnishings than a diner. The drink menu was very expansive. There were actually two different drink menus that listed all of... More

My husband and I were visiting the area and decided to give this local spot a try. We had heard excellent things about Lyon Hall and wanted to check it out. We were seated promptly and our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food, in our minds, was just average; nothing to rave about. The portions were fine, but... More

My wife and I just ate at Lyon Hall for the first time. When I made the reservvation, I let them know we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. From the start, they made us feel welcome. Although the restaurant was very crowded when we arrived, we were immediately seated. As soon as we sat down, two glasses of complimentary wine... More

Lyon Hall caught our eye because our last name is Lyon (no relation). We've been a couple times and it seems quite popular. It's not very large, so reservations are a good idea. It has an upscale-casual trendy feeling, and it seem to be popular with young professionals. After a brief wait to be seated, we enjoyed a hearty Sunday... More

Lyon Hall is a gourmet bistro with some unique features. It serves the best cup of coffee we have had in the East Coast of the U.S. in the past several years, and the food is an excellent mix of European hearty fare. Our group of 10 went for brunch to Lyon Hall over the holidays and between all of... More

A star for the beer selection, which is great. Another star for the ambiance. Service? Waitress "D" was going through the motions of a waitress (barely) and didn't check on us from the time she took the order until she brought the check. Had she done so, she might have noticed that the soup I had ordered was never delivered!... More

Another good Clarendon meeting spot, with delicious, unique menu items and a nice beverage list. Our party of four tried the mussels, served with a dish of frites, a nice beet salad, and the interesting and tasty hot dog appetizer first. We sampled the evening salmon special, the trout, and a burger, but gave top marks to the marvelous duck... More

On a very busy Friday night, near Christmas, we figured we'd bag the 2 hour wait and eat at the bar. A gentlemen suggested where we wait to get a seat and later took our order - he turned out to be the manager! The food was delicious - with Austrian-German flair. We loved the appetizers and that we could... More

This is a great neighborhood place, conveniently located two blocks from the Clarendon metro stop in northern VA outside of DC. We were meeting friends who live in that neighborhood and since they needed a babysitter we asked them to pick a place close to them, since we wanted to spend time with them- not have to pay a sitter...
