We have eaten at this restaurant for years every time we are in the Phoenix area. It has never disappointed. Even this trip, when we forgot to make reservations for the patio and they were having a wedding we ate off the bar menu on the patio and its was still a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed our experience at Lon's, mostly because we dined in one of the loveliest patios ever with a talented singer/guitarist performing and perfect weather. The food was not memorable. We overheard other diners (regulars) telling Mario (the host) the restaurant "hadn't hit it out of the park tonight" and we agree. Service was spotty at best. The bus staff... More

Lon's at Hermosa is situated in an upscale neighborhood and very popular with the locals. There is a beautiful outside dinning area. We made our reservation through Open Table and therefore didn't know to request an outside table. We ate in the dinning room. The dinning room is bland, no atmosphere particularly if there is only one other table with... More

Had the $34.00 steak which was just average. Not much taste, and somewhat tough. Everything separate when ordering the steak. Not sure why. Halibut was reported to be very dry. Atmosphere beautiful outside, but some little bugs liked to chew my feet. I would recommend experiencing this place for happy hour instead of dinner. For the price better places to... More

Took an out of town couple to dinner on the patio. We had an outstanding view of Camelback as the sun set. We all had different meals, filet, fish, specialty dish. All were outstanding. Service was efficient and attentive without hovering. Noise level was very comfortable even with the entertainment the restaurant provided. It is one of our favorite and... More

As far as atmosphere goes, this place can't be beat. The outdoor dining area is beautiful, surrounded by flowers, shade trees, fountains, and southwester pottery. In this sense, it offers a nice dining experience. The service and food, however, was below par. Our friends ordered beef, well done. It came out blood red in the center. My wife had a... More

Was here with a business group last week-- April 15-- and had a terrific dinner. The Hermosa Salad, and Lon's Pork Chop were really exceptional. Well prepared and fabulous flavor. Service outside got a bit chilly , but they moved us indoors and all was well. Highly recommend for a first class dinner. Not inexpensive

A very nice dining experience. We had a group pre-fix which was good but I would believe the regular menu may have been the better way to go, however the Remarkable outdoor space and huge patio made up for it and more!

We stayed at the hotel and ate breakfast every day and one lunch. All of our meals were prepared properly and were very good. The setting (inside and out) is wonderful.

The atmosphere here is superb! The food can't be beat and they have an excellent wine selection. The history is so interesting and makes a great backdrop for the fine dining experience here. My husband had the filet mignon which was excellent. I had fish and it was cooked perfectly. Salads were also superb.
