The exquisite flavors are superb. I suggest you try the Truffle Mac and Cheese.. The restaurant is worth never leaving the beautiful hotel. So my thoughts are stay there enjoy and see how delicious this restaurant is and what the wonderful menu has to offer..

Best patio dinning in Phoenix. The food varies from great to not so much. Service is also hit and miss.

The Hermosa Inn is an Historical Inn that is in the midst of a neighborhood in Paradise Valley, Arizona. I have eaten there numerous times, been been involved in cooking classes there and a wedding that I photographed. The ambience is unparalleled, dining inside or outside are just treats in themselves. Fireplaces, live music on the patio, a lovely library... More

We live around the corner from Lon's and went there with friends, again hoping the food would be good enough to become a regular patron. We were disappointed, the food was pedestrian but at an inflated price. We are happy to spend high for quality but not for average fare.

From the moment you sit down you know you're in for an experience. The food incredible, staff and management over the top nice and knowledgeable. I recommend the 6oz filet and if they have it butternut risotto. It was my birthday and was presented with a birthday card, funny part was they had the wrong name on it. My wife... More

Dine under the Arizona sky with locally grown fresh foods that tantalize the palate. The service was absolutely impeccable. The wines were divine.

This used to be a favorite years ago. The staff is wonderful and the service is exquisite however the last couple times we dined, I was very disappointed. I requested a plate of raw vegetables for our guest and the kitchen responded that there was none available. That veal's bone seemed very large for a calf, the chicken's texture reminded... More

Can't say enough good things about Lon's. My wife and I have eaten at some very good restaurants around the world but we both agreed that our meal at Lon's was probably overall the best meal we have ever had. No kidding. My wife loved the wine she ordered. Sorry, don't remember the name. The bread that was brought to... More

We arrived on a Sunday evening and the parking area was almost empty. The patio dining area was completely empty. We thought maybe we had come on the wrong night. Once inside we were greeted and seated by a very friendly host and the meal was outstanding. We were looking for a quiet escape from our big resort and this... More
