My wife and I decided to go for cocktails and appetizers one cold rainy evening. There were not many other guests, and we just stayed in the bar. It was very comfortable and pleasant.

A great place to stop before going elsewhere for dinner although the dining room was getting busy when we left. Wonderful patio area with fire pits that are necessary in the winter, even in PHX. A good drink with choices of appetizers....we always meet nice people doing the same thing we were doing.

jlcorcom, you are so right: a drink on the patio, with the fire roaring, is a delightful way to to spend a half hour. And thanks indeed for being a repeat guest. But as you said, "the dining room was getting busy." Next time, think about staying for dinner. Our wine list is one of the best in the state... More

We enjoyed the food, service and setting of Lon's. We ate in the beautiful garden beside a fireplace and under the heaters in January and did not get cold at all. Watched the sunset and could see Camelback Mountain. The food was excellent. We had filet mignon and the wild boar pasta. The staff were very friendly. All 3 elements... More

Michael G, General Manager at Lon's at the Hermosa, responded to this review

Coolcatzia, thank you very much for your spot-on review. Personally I agree that in our mild Phoenix winters eating on Lon's patio (with the heaters!) is a year-round delight. For those who like it warmer of course our inside dining room calls. But my personal preference is to sit outside. Watching the sun set over Camelback is a treat. More

My wife arranged a surprise birthday lunch for her sister here. It went off incredibly well. The staff participated in making the surprise work. Thanks, Mike! After the "surprise", we had a lovely lunch at a quiet indoor table. Appetizers and entrees were uniformly delicious. Service was prompt, friendly and gracious. Thanks, Kevin!

Christmas Diner at Lons was very very good. too bad the usual fire grilled Steak was actually not one for Chrismas. The setting, the paintings, the whole building alone is well worth visiting. It is a great place with a great table, One of the best in and around Scottsdale.

Thank you for your sweet review, BeauSejouri. And thank you in particular for singling out our paintings. This collection of Lon Megargee art is for us a prize, it really differentiates us and I know that whenever I take the time to really look at a few of them, I am rewarded. More

We were here the first weekend in November. It was a bit chilly but they had plenty of space heaters on the patio. The live music was great and the food was good but not extremely memorable. I think the atmosphere is what sells it! Would definitely go back!
