Romantic restaurant, good food and service

We ate outside in a very pretty lit courtyard. The waiter was attentive and fun, the food was very good, and it was a very nice setting. Live music also which was excellent. A very solid restaurant. If you want to sit outside, keep in mind you may want to have dinner after sunset.

I took my husband here for his birthday and we sat out on the patio for dinner. It was a beautiful setting with a lot of mesquite trees overhead, neat rope lights, and really cool lanterns on the tables and hanging from the trees. There was a live guitarist who was great. The food was absolutely fantastic. There was some... More

Wonderful outdoor dining patio in Camelback/Paradise Valley. Use your GPS to get there and you will be surprised. Not your typical restaurant/Phoenix setting. Large, walled, outdoor patio, comfortable couch/fire pit cocktail areas, numerous dining tables with shade umbrellas. Delicious food, good wine list, great desserts (!) and attentive staff. Inside dining as well. Don't know about summer weather but mid-May... More

Lon's is amazing. We were there during restaurant week and couldn't chose between the set menu and the regular offerings. The service was awesome.

We ate here based on reviews and I was disappointed. The staff were very friendly. I felt the food cane out very fast and rushed. My husband's crab cake came out cold so we sent it back. They very nicely replaced it. Had they not been too efficient it would have been fine. Out salmon came while my husband was... More

The food here is good, but the outdoor ambience is the BEST! This restaurant is most enjoyable in the months with cool evenings. The inside of the restaurant is nice, as well. If you can get a group together to schedule an event in the wine cellar, that is a top-notch experience! Lots of history and charm in the old... More

I had an excellent dinner last night. I've fortunate to be able to visit different places around the world but the chef's dinner with wine pairing last night was amazing. We dined outside, the weather was perfect, the food was absolutely spectacular. It's a great place for couples, groups and special occasions. The prices are reasonable and if you get... More
