We had an 8PM outside reservation. As a result most of the meal was eaten in the dark. The only lighting were a kerosene lantern at each table. The problem was that this lighting did not illuminate the tabletop itself and with the entrees served in high lipped bowls, we just could not see our food. This really compromised the... More

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Lons. The staff was exceptional and the food was creative and well portioned. Every course from the coffee brioche fois gras to the chocolate cake with bee pollen had great flavor and presentation. I wish I lived in the area so I could enjoy the beautiful surroundings and service on a... More

Lon's was a recommendation from a work friend who lives in PHX. I took several work & business types there for dinner. We sat inside and the place has a very cozy feel. Might try outside next time. The food choices were good and something from all of the basic meat groups I.E. fish, chicken beef etc. Quality was good... More

The experience with dining at Lon's begins with the genuine "Old West" setting and artifacts. But, we were taken to the only table for 2 in a large dining area immediately beside a large party of 9. While they were mannerly, the size of the party simply overpowered us with their conversations. Then came the food selections which disappointed from... More

My wife and I had dinner at Lon's for our first anniversary. We were seated by the fountain in the patio. There was an anniversary card waiting for us at our table. There was live music provided by a trio and we actually knew the singer from teaching a music class where we had both worked. The server was very... More

We had a group of 5 (including 1 child) that had brunch at Lon's at the Hermosa in February. We were seated on the smaller patio which was quiet and pretty but we would have much preferred the larger patio with live music and some green space for my daughter to run around without being a bother to the other...

My wife and I went here for dinner on Friday night. We were lucky enough to get a seat outdoors which was majestic. They had heat lamps by every table so you could sit comfortably even as the temperatures dropped. They had a band playing great music and there was a terrific smell in the air as they had a... More

In Phoenix on business but slipped away for a quiet evening by ourselves. Lon's was a great choice. The patio was quite busy, but we opted for a table indoors, and we were happy we did. Quiet and a great atmosphere. We ordered (and shared) the duck breast and a 10 ounce rib eye, which were both wonderfully prepared and... More

If you want a wonderful meal in a quaint Inn, this is it! It was much larger than I expected, but you never knew how big it was. We went at the spur of the moment, and ended up having to sit inside. (Make a reservation and ask for outdoor seating!) Even sitting inside was incredible! Two adults shared the... More
