We arrived on a Sunday evening and the parking area was almost empty. The patio dining area was completely empty. We thought maybe we had come on the wrong night.

Every year for our anniversary, our AZ friends give us a special treat by taking us to Lon's at the Hermosa. While the atmosphere - rustic elegance - is truly enjoyable, the food is absolutely delicious. Many wonderful choices - we order many and share - and each is tastier than the next. Service is impeccable too. This restaurant is... More

Wonderful food, great service and lots of ambiance. The restaurant once was the home of a western artist. You will truly enjoy this experience.

This historic restaurant was once the home of a cowboy artist and is located in a family neighborhood in Paradise Valley. There is a small hacienda type hotel on the property. The patio is large and holds several tables and is where the ambience is wonderful. The menu is not extensive but there are meat and fish selections, salads and... More

From start to finish, our dining experience was wonderful. Our server was very friendly, courteous, and always available. My companion's meal was not to her liking, and was promptly whisked away with another served quickly. Our dessert was "on the house" and it was so yummy, I would have gladly paid for it! Two different kinds of homemade ice cream... More

I spent a long weekend with friends in Scottsdale, and we enjoyed brunch at Lon's so much the first time that we went back for a second brunch. We all ordered different items--pancakes, huevos rancheros, a specialty hash, and bacon and eggs. The food was excellent, and the staff was so accommodating to us. If you go, do eat outside... More

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
