While I would return here for the food, I think the service needs some fine tuning. We had a table with three couples. Our waiter was very attentive in the beginning, and the GM even came to explain the Restaurant Week specials. After that, however, the service was touch and go. We were not served any bread until we requested... More

Lyon Hall has been on our restaurant list for quite some time. Friends have talked about how good their food is and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to take my wife's parents there for Restaurant Week. Unlike many other local restaurants, Lyon Hall did not have a set Restaurant Week menu. You were allowed to pick any items off... More

Reviews on Internet were quite good, and our experience lived up to the 4.3 out of 5.0 rating. I had the duck, which was cooked perfectly and the kale-turnip- fig side was a terrific complement. I was there with friends and all enjoyed their meals. Waiter didn't hover. Place was lively but not overly loud. We ate upstairs which was... More

I came here twice during Restaurant Week, once for lunch and then again a few days later for dinner. Was impressed both times with the high quality of the appetizers and desserts. The trout I had during the lunch was overcooked, but the swordfish dinner portion was done perfectly and the side vegetables were a perfect compliment. I would definitely... More

Lyon Hall is in my neighborhood and is one of my regular places to go solo or with friends because it is always top notch - great food and great service. If you're into beer, the selection is quite good. Nice wine selections too. Great bread that they make themselves. It really is a great place. Give it a try... More

The service is very nice and competent. Drinks are ok. Waiter always attentive. He will get involved in your conversations, making you feel at home, without ever being intrusive. Very civilized crowd; easy to make acquaintances. Only but is the decoration, which is a bit impersonal.

We were two couples who came in on a rainy cold night and we were all very satisfied with our dinners and service. The restaurant has a European patina and it was nice to be able to order Bitburger beer. I appreciated the opportunity to taste the wine before ordering a glass. I initially tried the Grenache blend but preferred... More

My goodness, it's hard to say unflattering things about people who try to hard to please. I ordered the roasted olives to share with the table - the best thing I ate that night. After that, a side salad, followed by the filet with bearnaise on potatoes gratin with asparagus on the side. The filet was ordered medium and came... More

Some things here are spectacular and some are just average. Brunch tends to be very good. The heavy German dishes are good to great when you are in the mood for some pretty authentic German food. The cheeses cheeses and charcuterie are great. Really good sauerkraut, even if you don't like sauerkraut. Steaks are only OK. Service while generally good,... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch at Lyon Hall - great selections, from lighter fare to omelets to the aptly named bohemian breakfast. Our server treated us to the wonderful 4-donut appetizer, and it was a delightful start. Highly recommended, and the crowds gathering as we were leaving seemed to validate our decision.
