Wonderful experience for my niece's birthday Ahi appetizer was excellent. Scallop entrees were both very good with novel presentation atop spicy snow peas. My husband said his chicken was the best he had eaten in a restaurant. My niece really enjoyed her duck. The only disappointment was the moon pie. We had two at our table, and the marshmallow on...

We had a group dinner for 16 in a private room. The restaurant is an old private residence made into a restaurant. Charming with a very Mexican feel and theme. Drinks and wine list, and food, and service were excellent.

We had a lovely patio table in the shade for a Sunday brunch. A most innovative menu included some curious items, but we were assured that we'd better not miss the Monkey Bread, a luscious pastry big enough to feed two. I also tried the roasted jalapena cornbread, then enjoyed Lon's art displayed inside the restaurant. We will go back... More

Great atmosphere. We sat outside where there were heated lamps and fireplaces. Live music. Wonderful service. Great food! We hope to go back.

This is as nice a dine as you can find in the Phoenix area. Get there just before the sun sets and enjoy the changeover to starlight, firelight, and soft music. Dine the outdoor patio whenever you can. A bit hard to find this gem as it is snuggled in a residential area. The drive by the neighboring mountains helps... More

Lon's exudes fun, charm and romance from the moment you enter the exterior patios. Terrific service, superb cuisine, nice atmosphere throughout. Looking forward to a return visit.

Had brunch at Lon's the day after Valentine's Day. The menu is not extensive, but the food is amazing. My wife had the crab cakes. They were made with virtually no - or no- filler at all. They were perfectly done and excellent. I had the steak frites. The fries were very good, the greens were beautifully dressed in a... More

I have wanted to dine at this revered restaurant for ten years...finally for a big double special occasion it happened. Thankfully, time was not an issue. First, the setting is beautiful and the staff all very nice. But little things matter at $$$ establishments. Like: multiple servers cause redundancies, frequent water refills are nice but getting coffee refills should not... More
