A home converted to a restaurant. Each room is intimate and well decorated. The wine and food selection is excellent. The best room is in the wine cellar but is very cool.

Our group of 9, had a most wonderful meal at this restaurant on our recent trip. The seared Ahi Tuna is served on a heated salt block so that you can actually cook it to your own liking. The beef tenderloin was great. The wine list was extensive and very good. Try the Cowboy Candy Bar for dessert!

We were a group of 4 people. We opted to sit outside on the patio. The lighting could have been a bit better, but it was still delightful sitting out there and it was evening. Even in the heat the patio was a great option. Most places are so cold with the air conditioning on much too high. We had... More

For years we've talked about going to Lon's and finally decided to try it for my husband's birthday. Everyone there was very attentive and wished him Happy Birthday. The dining room was quiet and relaxing, and it was interesting to read about the history of the Inn and restaurant. All went well until the food arrived. My fish was barely... More

Each winter when we vacation in Scottsdale, we try to make a visit to our favorite restaurant, Lon's at the Hermosa Inn. Ideal scenery on the patio, including a beautiful fireplace, fountain, white lights in the trees, and sometimes local music. Dining at sunset is perfect. It is a gem hidden from the world, and is what I'd consider the... More

We had a birthday celebration for my Aunt who turned 98 years young. The waitstaff was attentive and fussed over my Aunt's birthday. The vintage artifacts make the experience more memorable. Food was modern and the skirt steak was very tasty. Overall it was a memorable experience and we plan to return for our next visit.

Lon's offers a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere in a traditional dining room. Service and food quality is very reliable. At a recent dinner, the $40 Prix fixe menu included a light gazpacho soup, hanger steak with frites, and a grapefruit tart. This was very good value. Some in our party ordered a la carte and were equally pleased (the chicken entree... More

Took the love of my life to Lon's for a very special evening. The restaurant then and is located in the heart of Paradise Valley and then upscale residential area. We sat on the patio, in February listening to the cowboy musician. The food the service and the ambience was great. I believe we fell in love all over again.

If you are in search of a historic property with a great southwestern setting then you should make a reservation. During season the outdoor dining is the place to sit. Large outdoor area has umbrellas, heaters, and a huge fountain. More of a romantic place at night, but you are able to eat in the bar which is small. Cocktails... More
